Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.

Just getting finished…getting the editing done, seeing the book series take shape. With The Testimony series, I enjoy hearing people get excited to share their own testimonies with friends and family members. That’s rewarding.

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world.. which would it be?

I Robot, that was a good book. I’d like to live in a world with robots and all those robot logic problems. I’d like to travel in space, too.

What is your dream cast for your book?

For my memoir Saving Mary: The Possession, hee-hee! …I’d want William Shatner to play my dad! And I’d want Shirley MacLaine to play the overbearing spiritual leader who kicks me out of meditation group for having bad karma. I think she’d enjoy that character.

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?

I read all sorts of gothic romances. That’s about all I read. Looking back, I was obviously obsessed with being saved. That’s why my spiritual memoir is called Saving Mary: The Possession (and also because Mary Magdalene is the woman from whom Jesus cast out seven demons.) When you read The Testimony series, I think it’s important to remember that Jesus took demons seriously—he dealt with them. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat in Bible studies and when a demon pops up in the Bible the people at the study wonder if Jesus is just being metaphorical.

What’s one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors?

Finish your book. Keep working. Enjoy the process. Cry a little.
