Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the honor of interviewing Mary Hamilton, one of CAN’s newest members, an author who saw the desperate need for Christian fiction for tween boys—and filled it.

Mary, how did you get into writing? How many books do you have published?

I’ve enjoyed writing since I was very young, but it wasn’t until I became a stay-at-home mom that I pursued writing for publication. To start with, I wrote articles for some Christian magazines, and I wrote a Christmas play for the church I attended. When I turned to fiction and novels, I wrote what I knew, a Bible camp series for young teens. The Rustic Knoll Bible Camp series includes Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, and See No Evil.
