Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the joy of interviewing multi-published mystery author Nancy Mehl, 2009 recipient of the American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year Award for best mystery.
Many years ago, I heard a message that encouraged people who were confused about their calling to think back to their childhood. Looking at what comes naturally to us as children can give us definite clues to the gifts God has given us. I loved to read and began writing poems in second or third grade. Remembering that made me wonder if I was supposed to be a writer. I went to God and asked Him to show me. Once I knew His answer was yes, I began writing and never looked back. I’m blessed to say I know I’m exactly where God wants me to be.
That’s the best place to be! How many books do you have published?
I’ve had thirteen books published so far. I’m under contract for two more that will release next year.
My latest titles are Inescapable (Bethany House, July 2012), Book One in my Road to Kingdom series; my Harmony Trilogy (Barbour, June 2012), and several cozy mysteries which were recently released as e-books. All four of my Ivy Towers’s mysteries are available, and two books from my Curl Up and Dye series have found new life after going out-of-print about a year ago.
