  • Can you give us a basic summary of Silver Creek?

Silver Creek is a story about love, faith, trust, and forgiveness.

  • What kind of research did you do in order to write it?

I researched a little about the weather in Texas and that was basically it.

  • How long did it take you to write it from start to finish?

It took me around six months to write it.

Forgiveness. I had to keep reminding myself that the character wasn't me and I had really work on the forgiveness the character was giving.

  • Are there any authors or books who inspired you as a writer?

Karen Kingsbury and J.K. Rowling

  • Do you keep a strict writing schedule?

No I write at work and at home so I never know when it's going to hit me. Especially when ideas pop into my head in the middle of the night or something.

  • Who is your target audience?

Teens, adults, men, women, Christians, non-Christians.

  • What are some of your favorite books?

Karen Kingsbury's Redemption series. Left Behind series. Harry Potter series.

Don't give up.
