Interview With The Author
Q – Why write stories about a small fictional town in Texas?
A – I grew up in a small Texas town, so I know all the pros and cons and absolute blessings of living in a place like Miller’s Creek–a laid-back, down-home lifestyle, wonderful folks, and even a few who think it’s their job to know everyone’s personal business. The stories were designed to give readers an experience of feeling like they’ve arrived at a place that feels like home.
Although the Miller’s Creek novels are technically classified as romances, they’re really so much more: southern fiction, women’s fiction (though I have a surprisingly high amount of men readers), suspense, comedy, drama, even a little bit of psychological thriller thrown in to keep readers turning pages. And each of the books carry a distinctive spiritual theme as well as an overall journey theme for the series. (Hence words like roads, path, way, pilgrimage, and bridge in the titles.)
Q – In what order should the books be read?
A – The books were created as stand-alone novels, so they can be read in any order. However, if you have OCD issues like me, you might want to read them in the order in which they were written:
-A PATH LESS TRAVELED
-THE WAY OF GRACE
-PILGRIMAGE OF PROMISE
-A BRIDGE UNBROKEN (and its companion Bible study on the theme of forgiveness, THE FRAGRANCE OF CRUSHED VIOLETS)
Q – So why will readers be interested in the Miller’s Creek novels?
A – Based on reader reviews, I’d say the books are compelling reads for these five main reasons:
1. They make readers laugh one minute and tear up the next.
2. They offer plenty of conflict and tension to keep readers turning pages.
3. The setting is compelling. (Some readers have compared Miller’s Creek to Mayberry, only Texas-style. And I’ve lost count of how many readers have told me they want to live in Miller’s Creek.)
4. The characters are endearing and relatable.
5. The books’ themes are spiritually impactful.
In addition, all the books are rated at 4.5 stars or higher.
Q – Have any plans to bundle the series into a collection?
A – Actually the first three books have been bundled. Readers can check out my Amazon author page for a full list of my book titles, including the collection. And a big shout out to my reader friends: Thanks for reading!
