1. What is your favorite dessert? Anything chocolate. The richer the better.
2. What is your beverage of choice?
Besides cappuccinos, I am a huge sparkling water fan. I never thought I would be after living in Italy for a few months and constantly specifying “con gas”—but, it has cut my cola habit, and makes plain ol’ water seem boring.
3. What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
Ahhh, this is always such a hard question. I am a chick flick nut, and my favorites in a pinch are: Sense and Sensibility (that counts as a chick flick, right?), The Proposal, The Holiday, and Thirteen Going On Thirty (I know…I can be goofy like that). I am not a huge TV show watcher, but I LOVE Victoria, The Crown, and…ok, don’t judge: The Golden Girls.
1. Who or what inspired you to become an author?
My grandparents. And my husband’s grandmother’s love story. That’s when I first sat down and began to write for publication. I love history, and I am blessed to have an amazing family history to glean from.
2. What did you want to be when you grew up? Did becoming an author ever cross your mind?
My grandfather was an architect (and like I said, my grandparents inspire me), so by the time I was ten, I had concluded that I was an architect-in-training. After thousands of floor plans over the next several years, I assumed that I would go to college for Architecture. And I did. But I switched to Landscape Architecture instead. All through childhood though, I wrote stories upon stories, and devoured books, too. So, I was prepping for my dream career, while focusing on a more “practical” pursuit (that only lasted for two years in the real world. SAHM became my career for fourteen years after).
3. Who are some of your favorite authors? Do these authors inspire your own writing?
My all time favorites are Enid Blyton, Charlotte Bronte, William Shakespeare, Jean Plaidy, and C.S. Lewis. I love the lyrical flow of classical writing and the chance to just sit in the art as well as the story. They very much inspire me to write well! Shakespeare shows up in some of my stories, and I actually have a whole series dedicated to him. :) One day I hope to share it with readers!
4. When you are not writing, what other activities do you enjoy?
I LOVE hanging out with my friends. I’ve been known in some of my circles as the “social coordinator”. HAHA. Eclectic food and girl talk are some of the best things in life!
Book Related Questions
1. How did you become involved with writing for Love Inspired?
I actually entered the LIH Matchmakers Contest, and won!
2. What inspired the idea for The Outlaw's Second Chance?
I started writing this story about four years ago, targeting Love Inspired Historical. I wanted to write something connected to the land run because it’s fascinated me ever since I fell in love with movie, Far and Away. Remember it? Anyway, I also loved the idea of an Oklahoma setting since my dad was born there. :)
3. What do you want readers to take away from reading The Outlaw's Second Chance?
Grace. We are too hard on ourselves, aren’t we? At least I am. In Cort and Aubrey’s story I try and illustrate that God will use the people in our lives to reveal His heart, His truth. If we open our hearts and listen, we’ll find transformation and freedom to live abundantly.
