About the Author
Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. (The picture doesn't show it well, but there are scribblings on the page of Green Eggs and Ham). Now that she's grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn't stop her from trying.
When she isn't writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, writing, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana someday to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.
1. How did you get started as an author? What or whom inspired you?
My friend told me about a writing contest and I worked really hard to enter. I was a semi-finalist which was great! Even though I didn’t win, it got me started into looking at self-publishing and becoming a published author. The two people who have most inspired me are Aubrey Hansen and Molly Evangeline/Jaye L. Knight. They are both independently published and helped me get started.
2. How many books have you written and in what genres?
Written or published? I have written more books than I can count. Most of them are contemporary fiction or historical fiction, although I did do a light fantasy once that I intended to turn into a trilogy. As for my published books, I have a total of seven right now and all of them are Christian Westerns.
3. What writing projects are you currently working on? What can you tell us about these projects?
I am currently editing a novel (The Solid Rock [Hymns of the West #5]) and two novellas that go along with Lily of the Valley. I am also writing/editing three novellas that will go along with The Solid Rock and a couple of short stories one of which I hope to publish in a box set with some other authors and the other is for my little brother.
4. What authors/novels that you enjoy would you recommend?
Anything by Karen Witemeyer, Ride the River, Brionne Chantry, and any of the books about the Sacketts by Louis L’Amour, anything by Jaye L. Knight, and the Firmament series by J. Grace Pennington.
There’s a few for you.
5. What other hobbies do you enjoy when you are not writing?
Crocheting, knitting, sewing, and reading.
