Paralyzed Dreams is a story I wrote for my mom for Christmas. She used to be a volleyball player, and that was my initial inspiration for the story. Eventually, it morphed into a story about God’s love and grace, and learning to rely on him through whatever trials we have to go through.
Right now, I’m working on a contemporary novel about a blind girl named Chloe and her friends and family. It’s more of a feels-y story than some of my other stuff, including Paralyzed Dreams, and I’m having a lot of fun with it. Chloe’s a great character, and I’ve enjoyed writing first person from her point of view. Lots of exciting stuff…
Assuming we’re talking about fiction here, My absolute favorite book/series ever is The Lord of the Rings. Honestly, ever since I read it, it’s made it so much easier to answer the favorite book question. Four more… Definitely The Lunar Chronicles – the characters and plot are just amazing. Cress is my favorite so far. Along with that is The Ilyon Chronicles, which also has amazing characters and plot, and fantastic worldbuilding. Then of course my longtime favorite, The Chronicles of Narnia. You can never outgrow Aslan! And finally, a single, The Auschwitz Escape. That book was just wonderful.
Not necessarily. I usually read on my bed, with blankets on top of me in the winter, or in the car, when I’m not driving. But I can read pretty much anywhere.
The only problem with this question is… which one? I started Tae Kwon Do this summer, and I’ll be testing for my yellow belt this month. It’ll probably help any fight scenes I write be more realistic. And, yeah, it’s fun.
Don’t be afraid to dream big, and to seek God’s plan in your life! Listen to his calling, don’t ignore it. And when faced with an opportunity, don’t let fear stop you. Go out there and change the world
