Author, doctor, wife, mom, dog mom, and child of God. I love writing, reading, yoga, and hanging out with my teenager. I love writing stories that touch the heart and reach the soul.
Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.
Hi there! I'm a full-time Obstetrician, wife, and mom. The rest of my time is devoted to writing novels, reading, yoga, walking, and social activities. I don't want to forget about my doggies!
When and why did you start writing books?
I started writing books in 2017. My life experiences made for some good stories, and I wanted to write about them. I used some of these experiences and worked them into fiction stories with a flare for the romantic. The best part of my writing is that I get to share God's love and goodness with my readers.
What made you decide to tackle writing as a career?
I've always enjoyed writing papers of any sort: essays, research papers, positional papers, etc. I started listening to audiobooks during my commute to work, and I found that I loved the escape the fictional romance stories gave me. I wanted to give my readers the same fantastic escape with the addition of heartwarming, believable stories.
Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?
I love Lavender Sky. It's my first novel, and it's my favorite because it parallels many parts of my life. In the story, Delaney comes to understand the redemptive power of God's love. The same has been true for my life. There is a wonderful message in the book.
Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?
Lavender Sky was the hardest to write for a few reasons. First of all, it was my first novel, and so I questioned everything at every turn. Should I change this? How should I change that? Does that sound dumb? It was ongoing anxiety :) Second, the book paralleled my life, and so I had to put events from my own life out in the public eye in order to write the story and then explain the story behind the story. Third, parts of the story were hard for me to write since they brought back memories of not-so-good times.
Who is your favourite author and book?
My favorite author is Richard Paul Evans. He really is the one who inspired me to write. My favorite book he wrote is The Christmas Box.
What book are you reading right now?
I've been reading several historical romances recently. I enjoy Pride and Prejudice variations. My current read is Darcy vs. Bennett by Victoria Kincaid.
Where do you get your inspiration for your books?
Inspiration for my stories comes from my relationship with God. My whole reason for writing is to share some good news with my readers. Having experienced God's love and forgiveness and redemption firsthand, I want to make sure everyone knows it's free for them as well. I choose fiction and romance as my genre, because I love creating a story around the message I am giving to my readers. I think readers can relate to it better that way.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Well, I actually write some in my spare time, but when I'm not writing, I spend most of my time with my family. They are my world. I think it's important to exercise and eat healthy as well, so I try to find a balance there.
Do you have any new books in the works?
Yes, I'm working on a new novel called Never Gone. It should be ready for release next year. No spoilers as of yet, but I will tell you it's set in Guntersville, Alabama, like Lavender Sky and Heart Chimes, and it's a story of forgiveness and connection.
