Where did you get your idea for writing The Love Story?
The idea for writing this book came from two different sources. The first one being, I was asked by my local church nursery to create a curriculum, which focuses on one biblical character; with mine being Jesus Christ. After developing this entire curriculum, it was decided that another biblical character should be used. After some time had passed, I decided to read The Love Story to a family member, who quickly asked, “were did you get that book?” Stating I wrote it, they encouraged me to have The Love Story published.
What inspired the title of your book?
I consider everyone has a love story, including God; so I desired to share his love story between God and man.
What do you hope this book will accomplish?
The goal of this book is to share and retell the story of Jesus Christ in a simple manner; wherein, everyone regardless of age can comprehend without difficulty. It is also a goal to share the love of Jesus Christ with those who are unfamiliar with his life or life story.
How did you choose the genre you write in?
I chose this genre specifically to educate children of all ages. As an education student, Sunday school teacher and mother I love to read children’s book. I find them in engaging, fun and exciting therefore, I choice to write for children, bringing them the same enjoyment that I enjoy when reading a book.
Are there other books on the horizon?
Yes, I am in the process of writing another children’s book. It is almost complete and hopefully should be release sometime early or mid-2015.
Any tips for upcoming authors?
Authors must decide on the completion of their finished work. Be patient with oneself, it can take a day, a month, and sometimes even years before your complete your writing. Depending on the content of your book characters, scenery and multiple aspect of your book may change. So be patient with you; enjoying the process of writing; never relinquishing the dream of having a publisher literacy work.
