Mona Hodgson Connects With Readers

"DC_Spencer"

Davalynn Spencer
here, from colorful Colorado, excited to visit with Mona Hodgson. I met Mona a
few years ago at a Mt. Hermon Christian Writers Conference and have been awed
by her maneuverability between children's books and historical fiction. Mona has
some great tips for first-book authors.

Welcome, Mona.
Will you tell us how you became a writer?

can remember, I was going to be a nurse like my cousin Irene. That's what I
told my parents and that's what we all expected. Although I had been more
successful in English classes than in other classes, and I had always preferred
words over numbers or science projects, becoming a writer hadn't crossed my
mind until I was nearly thirty.
