How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Although THE FOREVER STONE is a romantic mystery, it falls under the broad genre of Christian romance.
Christian romances vary widely, but certain basics distinguish this genre from others:
—a conflicted relationship between a man and a woman
—an ending that is happy or hopeful
—“clean” content and a Christian worldview
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Read—widely and deeply. Read in genres you enjoy; re-read books you admire; try to read well-known works that don’t immediately appeal to you.
Study—your craft. Take writing courses, whether in person, online, or from books. Follow good writing blogs. Try to use what you’re learning to analyze the books you’re reading.
Write—every day, no matter the subject. Setting up a schedule for studying and writing will yield encouraging results.
Don’t ever give up! Follow your dream and work to make it come true.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
For years, I watched, listened, and wept with a friend who had suffered from abuse, and I sensed her need to escape to another environment. Later, as I hiked in the NJ Pine Barrens, I found it a fascinating new world and thought it would be a good place for a bruised person to think about God and to heal.
About the Author:
Adventure, mystery, and wild creatures all play a part in Gloria Repp’s many books. She grew up in the Hawaiian Islands and the Pacific Northwest, and it was there she learned a love for wilderness that pervades her stories. Over the years, experiences gained from raising three children, teaching school, and editing have made useful contributions to her work.
Gloria takes frequent trips to explore the forests and bogs of New Jersey’s Pine Barrens and to get website photographs and research material for her books. The lovely pine woods, tumbled ruins, and gleaming dark streams of the Barrens have provided both inspiration and setting for her novel, THE FOREVER STONE, and for those to follow.
