Proverbs 16:3 “Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.”
What was your biggest break?
When Kregel Publications picked up my unagented first novel, Across the Wide River. Still with them.
I’m inspired by…
Finding obscure historical moments and wondering, “What if?”
My great adventure has been…
Reading my first book by myself in second grade, Dancing Cloud by Mary and Conrad Buff.
If I could go anywhere, it would be…
Out west where skies are dark and stars are bright.
If you have only…an hour…
Describe yourself in one word?
If your house were on fire, what one thing would you save?
What drives you to succeed?
Time crunch, usually.
