Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the joy of interviewing an author I’ve enjoyed getting to know over the years. Not only is Liz Tolsma a gifted and bestselling historical novelist, but she’s generous and compassionate and enthusiastic. Through her novels, she’s explored various eras—and in her latest novel, she’s delving into historical romantic suspense!

Greetings from charming Mount Dora, Florida, where we haven’t quite decided if we’re ready for warm weather or not. I do, however, have a warm conversation to offer you today with delightful novelist Liz Tolsma. Welcome back, Liz, to our CAN blog. Let’s get started with the official interview.

How many books do you have published? What are a few of your latest titles?

I have six. My most recent are “World’s Greatest Love” in the Rails to Love novella collection, and “A Match Made in Heaven” in the Matchmaker Brides novella collection.

Congratulations! You were last featured on the CAN blog in 2013. What are the chief lessons you’ve learned about the writing life since then?

Sundin #D70 ©2008 Linda Johnson Photography web (2)Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing fellow WWII fiction author, Liz Tolsma. Her debut novel, Snow on the Tulips, is an outstanding look at life in Nazi-occupied Holland, and it just released on August 6!

CAN Liz TolsmaLiz, how did you get into writing? How many books do you have published?

My fifth-grade teacher gave us many writing assignments. I loved them –especially the tall tales where I could let my imagination run wild. She encouraged me to follow my dream of becoming an author. It took a long time to happen, but I always remembered her words. I have two stories published, and a novella Under His Wings in the New York Times bestselling collection A Log Cabin Christmas. Snow on the Tulips is my first solo novel. It is the first in a three-book series.
