Welcome, MaryLu! Tell us about your salvation experience.
A spontaneous writer or a scheduled writer?
If you mean do I schedule time to write each day, yes, I usually try and do my writing in the morning when my mind is fresh. If you mean do I plot every detail of my story before I write, absolutely not. I get to know the characters and allow them freedom to write their own story.
Stubborn, or compliant?
It depends on the topic. I’m great at compromise on many issues, but on certain things, I won’t budge!
Organized or completely chaotic?
My husband likes to call my writing office “organized chaos” so I guess you could say both. It appears like chaos, yet I know where everything is! LOL
In your opinion, what is your best trait? What is your worst?
I’m a great listener and very compassionate, but I’m also really bad at handling stress and at worrying.
Tell us something surprising about yourself that readers may not know.
I love ice hockey (Go Sharks!) and popcorn is my all-time favorite food!
If you compared your writing style to any other Christian Fiction author, who would it be? Also, how would you rate the romance in your books?
Deeanne Gist or Tamera Alexander...PG13
What are you working on now or going to write next?
I’ve just turned in book 2 in my Surrender to Destiny series and I’m starting to work on book 3, Surrender the Dawn. Here’s a blurb about the story:
The only way Cassandra Channing can provide for her younger siblings is to hire a privateer, captained by the rogue, Luke Heaton. Although Luke’s prizes provide much wealth for her family, Cassandra suspects foul play. Luke Heaton spends his nights drinking, carousing, and selling supplies to British ships just off the coast of Baltimore. When Cassandra catches on to his treasonous acts, he begins to have second thoughts. Secrets and dangers abound as the British fleet heads toward Baltimore and begin to bombard Fort McHenry. With the fate of their fledgling nation at stake, what destiny awaits this couple as they struggle to keep their faith, their lives, and their love?
How can readers get in contact with you?
But when Noah walks out on their engagement party, Marianne chases him down and ends up on his merchantman out at sea. The situation worsens when Noah’s ship encounters a British man-of-war and the couple is impressed into the British navy.
While a young lad’s prophecy of destiny looms over them both, Marianne and Noah are forced to face their darkest fears as they desperately try to find a way to escape and fulfill their destinies—destinies that could change the course of the war and history forever.
Who would you pick to play the lead roles if this book was made into a movie?
