Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the privilege of interviewing novelist Ane Mulligan, one of our newest CAN members, but a longstanding member of American Christian Fiction Writers—and the recipient of ACFW’s first Volunteer Service Award. Ane brings a lot of energy and humor wherever she goes, and we’re thrilled to have her in CAN. You’ll enjoy what she has to share today.
Ane, how did you get into writing?
I’d quit my job as an office manager and my husband said, “Don’t look for another job. Write a book.” I was a published playwright but novelist? Well, God often speaks to me through my husband, so I tried. It took a loooong time. As a playwright, all I knew was how to write dialogue. POV? What does that mean? Obviously, I had a lot to learn.

Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the honor of interviewing Mona Hodgson, author of almost forty fiction and nonfiction books! Mona also gives back to the writing community. I’m one of many writers who have benefitted from Mona’s teaching and warmth at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. This past year Mona also took on the responsibility as director of the conference, and she’s doing an excellent job!

Twenty-eight children’s picture books, early readers, and middle-grade nonfiction. Eleven novels and novellas, and a Cripple Creek novella releasing in November. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the honor of interviewing suspense writer, Linda J. White. I enjoyed meeting Linda at the ACFW Conference a few years ago and loved reading her new novel, Seeds of Evidence. What a page-turner!
Linda, how did you get into writing?
I was a mom at home, raising three kids. When my youngest was ready to go to kindergarten, I started praying, “OK, God, what do you want me to do with the rest of my life?” I had done a lot of volunteer writing for churches and preschools, so it seemed natural to segue into freelancing for pay. I began trying my hand at magazine articles, devotionals, adult Sunday school materials and so on. One day, I had an idea for a novel. My husband said, “You ought to write that!” At first, I thought, “Sure, right.” But he dragged me over to the FBI Academy and began introducing me to people who taught me everything from probable cause to pistols. And I wove it all into a story. That book has not yet been published. In fact, I wrote three manuscripts before Bloody Point, which was picked up by an imprint of Cook and published in 2005.
What are your latest titles?
My latest, Seeds of Evidence, from Abingdon Press, was released April 1. Words of Conviction comes out next April.
