A day in the life of homeschooling author mom, Kara Howell.

March 31, 2015 by

Kara, is not only a fellow author, but also a homeschooling mother just like I am. I hope you enjoy and are blessed reading how she juggles her family life with writing. As I read my author friend's daily routine it reminded me of a time when at least one of my kids was under five...seems like a long time ago. Now that my youngest is 10 still feels like I don't have enough time to write. Well, hang in there , Kara. I have a feeling once our youngest hits 20 you might just have more time...Who knows? Maybe you could even ...

A day in the life of an ex-journalist turn author, Martin Roth,

March 28, 2015 by

Two years ago I had the pleasure of getting to know author Martin Roth, through the John316 network I belong to. Since then I'd had great fun reading his thrillers--all with a Christian twist. Personally, I love reading suspense and thrillers but have always struggled having to read all the profanity and just immoral stuff that goes on even in a book!  Thankfully, Martin's books have all the thrills without all of the unpleasantness of mainstream thrillers. Yeah! So, folks, meet Martin, an author from Down Under. A Day in the Life of Author, Martin Roth Last year I ...

In the Life of Author Janis Cox

March 23, 2015 by

Today, author and illustrator Janis Cox visits me! Like myself she is also a children's author. I hope you enjoy gleaning the different things authors do to sustain an income, write and still have a life outside of writing. In the Life of Children's Author Janis Cox When Emma Right asked me to write about a typical day in my life, I realized that was impossible. I am a retired, or should I say realigned, a person who now finds herself writing, and painting for the Lord.   Each day is different. Tonight I am supposed to be making stuffed ...

A Day In The Life Of Author, Katherine Harms

March 22, 2015 by

What is it like to live on a boat and write? And have a ministry? Today, we meet Katherine Harms! Let's here her story! Writing as Ministry and Life I debated at length how to talk about a day in my life, because I thought at first it was just a question of how I get work done on a manuscript. However, for me to approach the story that way was to accede to a definition of writing that I no longer accept. When I wrote my first book, and even more after it placed third in the Christian Writer’s ...

A Day In The Life of Author Alice J. Wisler

March 14, 2015 by

In The Life of Author Alice J. Wisler: Or life at the end of the dining room table Once I had a computer in the living room, then I had an office. The office came along when my oldest daughter moved out and her bedroom became my domain. Carl, my husband, fixed it up for me with shelves for all my novels and research books, and a desk. He took over the computer downstairs in the living room. All was well. I loved going to that office to write. Then my daughter came back home. She moved in and ...

A Day In The Life Of Author Roger Bruner

March 10, 2015 by

A Day In The Life Of Author Roger Bruner What is your typical writing day like?   My life as an author changed a lot when I retired at sixty-two to write full-time. But not the way I'd expected. I thought I'd finally get to spend eight or ten glorious hours every day writing away on the next novel and nothing else. But I'd overlooked the fact that life and responsibilities—the more pressing ones, at least—still go on after retirement. And writing would still be really hard, no matter how successfully I had the plot laid out.   I ...

How Same Sex Marriage Will Affect Your Church and Your Christian Right To Believe.

March 8, 2015 by

How Same Sex Marriage Will Affect Your Church and Your Right To Believe. Deadline is Wednesday March 11! I don't particularly enjoy political things but when it encroaches on an American's right to believe and practice our faith I feel we should not bury our heads in the proverbial sand. If we keep doing this there will be a day when we will wake up and wonder who took away our right, when and how and it would be too late. It's not too late yet. God gave us this right (for now) in this land. Read the letter ...
