Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California, where the rain is falling lightly and wildflowers are blooming brightly! Only a short drive away from me lives today’s guest—and one of my closest friends—multi-published author Jeanette Hanscome. Jeanette and I met at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference, and now we both have the honor of serving on faculty at that conference as well as serving on the board for the West Coast Christian Writers Conference. Jeanette has an incredible heart for new writers or for anyone who feels uncomfortable or out of place—and isn’t that all of us at one time? Her heart for others shines in her writing, as does her amazing sense of humor.
Jeanette, please tell us about your book, Suddenly Single Mom: 52 Messages of Hope, Grace, and Promise.
Suddenly Single Mom is a devotional that reads like a memoir of persevering through what feels impossible. It uses my story of rebuilding my life as a single mom, who had the added challenge of being visually impaired and unable to drive, to equip women for their own difficult situations. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! What a joy to interview a fellow Bay Area author, an amazing lady I’ve had the privilege to get to know over the years, especially at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. Jeanette Hanscome is a case-study in humble perseverance, and I’m certain you’ll be inspired by what she has to share!
Jeanette, how many books do you have published? What are a few of your latest titles?
I have written five books, six if you count the short Christmas story that I wrote for Kathi Macias’s 12 Days of Christmas series as a book. (It released as an eBook.) Running with Roselle, which I co-authored with blind 9/11 survivor Michael Hingson, was published in November 2013. My latest release is Suddenly Single Mom: 52 Messages of Hope, Grace, and Promise (published by Worthy Inspired, March 2016). In many ways this felt like my first book, because it was the first one that flowed from my own heart and experience rather than being co-authored or written as part of someone else’s series.

Jeanette, tell us how you got into writing?
My therapist made me do it. Can you believe that? He was so demanding! He also made me attend my first writer’s conference.

Happy Thursday from Jeanette Hanscome! I started a new book recently that I’m extremely excited about, not because I’m writing the book that I’ve always wanted to write or finally got a new contract (we don’t have one yet), but because I’m helping someone else tell their story.
