Happy New Year from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the honor of interviewing Andrea Boeshaar, a familiar name to Christian writers. Not only does Andrea have dozens of titles to her credit, but she’s also worked as an agent and currently works as a writing coach and substantive (content) editor. Andrea has great advice to share with us today!

Andrea, how did you get into writing?

I started writing as a little girl. I wrote in diaries, penned letters to relatives, and created songs and plays. In the fourth grade, I even wrote a book called “Little Miss Mouse.”

When I first began writing romance novels in the 1980s, I envisioned myself a writer like Johanna Lindsay or Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. But God had other ideas. In 1991, I trusted Christ and my perspective changed—so did my goals for my writing.
