Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California. Today I have the honor of interviewing Janet Chester Bly. She and her late husband, Stephen Bly, individually and as co-authors, have 120 published titles! I’m looking forward to hearing wisdom from a true veteran in the field of Christian writing.
When my late husband, Stephen Bly, got God’s call into ministry, graduated from seminary, and began to pastor a church, I wanted to know His will for me too. That began a search of several years for my own spiritual gifts meant to benefit the church and other believers. One day a friend handed me a brochure to Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. I attended that year of 1975. Got excited about the whole venture of writing. Eventually, got my husband involved too. I took a book proposal of his to the conference in 1980. Two different editors were interested. His first book was published in 1981.
