Greetings from Marti Pieper in sunny, rainy (almost every afternoon right now) Florida. I first met the subject of today’s interview when I picked him and some other authors up at the Orlando airport to head to the 2010 Florida Christian Writers Conference. We’ve crossed paths several times through the years, and I have always appreciated his deep devotion to God and concern for people. I look forward to introducing my friend Craig von Buseck to you today.
Welcome, Craig! Could you please tell us about your most recent book?

How can you know you are making the right choices in life? This question is examined and answered in Seven Keys to Hearing God’s Voice. No, it’s not crazy to hear the voice of God— it’s a promise from the Bible that we can claim as our birthright of faith. Read More →

Greetings from Kevin Thompson! School is back in session here in Florida. That means there are thousands of mothers out there either breathing into paper bags (because they are first time school parents) or breathing a sigh of relief, looking forward to hours of quiet time with a book, a cup of coffee, and a house filled with silence (because they’ve been there, done that with the whole school thing). So, for those ready to read, I introduce to you novelist MaryAnn Diorio! Welcome, MaryAnn.
Let’s get this interview jumpstarted by having you tell us about your latest book, Return to Bella Terra.
Maria Tonetta returns to Sicily to face not only her mother’s death but also the bankruptcy of the family farm. Caught between two worlds, Maria must choose one. But when her son’s biological father appears at Mama’s funeral, Maria must face an even greater enemy within her own soul. Read More →

Good summer morning from Colorado. Davalynn Spencer here, pleased to introduce author Linda Wood Rondeau and her featured book, Hosea’s Heart.
I love the title, Linda. Give us a quick shot of what your book is about.
This fiction book is inspired by the biblical book of Hosea. A minister has searched for his runaway, drug-addicted wife for the past fifteen years. When they are finally reunited, he discovers two alarming truths: she is dying of lung cancer, and she is a material witness against a Washington, D.C., drug lord and former lover. Though she has recently come to faith, can he extend to her the forgiveness she requests?

What was it about the biblical story that made you want to set it in contemporary times?
The story of Hosea and Gomer in the book of Hosea has long intrigued me. Why would God ask someone to enter into a disastrous relationship? How is it possible to forgive so much wrong? The parallels between Hosea’s life and Israel demonstrate God’s encompassing love and redemption. Though we may suffer the consequences of our poor choices, the Lord is sovereign even over these.

Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing novelist Eleanor Gustafson. She’s built houses, made her own maple syrup, and she plays with “word plants.” I think you’ll enjoy what Ellie has to share!
