Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today we have something new for you on the CAN blog. On Thursdays, we’ll be chatting with our members about their latest books and the writing life. We hope this feature will be enjoyable for readers, retailers, and librarians.
Roger E. Bruner
Kicking us off in our debut chat is Roger E. Bruner! Not only is Roger a novelist, but he’s also written over two hundred songs. A folk guitarist, he takes his songs on mission trips abroad—and to his local nursing home! So let’s have a chat with Mr. Bruner.
Roger, please tell us about your novel Rosa No-Name (intriguing title!)
Rosa leaves her tiny Mexican village a rejected, illiterate, pregnant sixteen-year-old and returns at twenty a mature, highly literate woman. But can she forgive the villagers for their former ill treatment and help them find a way to survive? And will she find the God she’s been seeking? Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin! I’ve just come home from the fabulous Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference, and now it’s back to work. But today’s work is fun! I get to interview a very special friend, novelist Cara Putman. Cara shares my love for World War II, and we were co-authors for Where Treetops Glisten. She also puts her background as a lawyer to use in mysteries and in her latest novel, Beyond Justice, a gripping legal thriller.
Cara, how many books do you have published? What are a few of your latest titles?
I currently have 25 books out or in process. My latest book is Beyond Justice, and then I have several with Guidepost mysteries as well as Where Treetops Glisten and Shadowed by Grace. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the honor of interviewing scuba-diving, ukulele-playing author Katrina Cassel, who writes nonfiction for girls and preteens. Because if you write for children, you have to stay young at heart!
Katrina, how did you get into writing?
I always enjoyed writing but never thought it could be a career, so I went into teaching. But moving around with my Air Force husband meant trying to recertify in different states, so instead I worked more on my writing. Then with all the changes in education it was no longer “fun,” so I never went back to teaching but focused on raising our children and writing. (I have eight children—two by birth, one step and five adopted, three of whom are from Haiti). Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Well, this is a fun interview for me. As a pharmacist dragged into writing by the Lord, I enjoyed reading Dr. Lainna Callentine’s story—a pediatrician dragged into writing by the Lord. Hmm. Dr. Callentine uses her background in medicine and homeschooling to teach anatomy and physiology to children—and now she has a series of books for children on these subjects.
Dr. Lainna Callentine
Dr. Callentine, how did you get into writing?
I never had an interest in being an author. Crazy, right? This is not the way most authors typically start off an interview. It was not on my radar. I always had a love and a passion for science. I felt called to be a doctor at the tender age of four years old. I spent many days in the hospital as asthmatic child. Suffering from severe asthma kept me in the mix of medical professionals. I would watch the doctors and nurses care for me, and it inspired me to want to be a children’s doctor. God has been so gracious to allow me to care for the most amazing patients as a pediatrician.
