What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
While I have always loved the idea of writing and felt it could be part of my ministry it is only within the last few years I actually put pen to page. While I have written non-fiction, at present my heart is set on fiction. I love the drama of storytelling and getting lost in imagination. I also love creating characters who’s lives have a message. I believe that stories can bring to life the Gospel in a way no sermon can. My desire is to craft a story that would minister to and motivate young adults in their faith.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I don’t have a formula. They just kind of pop up in my imagination and introduce themselves. I know that may sound a little weird but its the best explanation I have. The more I write about a certain character the more I get to know them.
Later, Zoe lay in bed staring at the ceiling. Drifting to sleep, images of the boy, his eyes black and staring straight into her, floated through her mind. Goosebumps covered her arms and she sat straight up. Her window was still open. She got out of bed, bare feet crossing the wooden floor to pull it closed. She glanced at the quiet street below. Something caught her eye and she gave another look. A shadowy figure stood on the walk in front of their house and tilted its head up toward her. Her heart lurched. She quickly locked the window, closed her eyes and sighed heavily. When the beat in her chest had slowed back to its normal rhythm, she slowly peered back through the curtains to find the street empty.
Zoe! Pull yourself together, girl. This creepy house is getting to you.
“You all right?” Claire peeked in the doorway.
“Yes, just closing the window.”
“Okay, then. You know where to find me.”
“Good night, Zoe.” Claire closed Zoe’s door and walked down the creaking hallway to her room. She stiffened as she looked out at the dark street before closing her own window. “It can’t be happening; she’s too young. I thought moving her would keep her safe.” Claire whispered to the air as her fingers played with the key on her necklace. The ornate golden charm rolled between her fingers as she sighed heavily and lay down to sleep.
