The Women of the Valley View: Pam

Our guest is Sharon Srock, author The Women of the
Valley View: Pam. Author Sharon Srock went from science fiction to Christian fiction at slightly less than warp speed. Twenty five years ago, she cut her writer's teeth on Star Trek fiction. Today, she writes inspirational stories that focus on ordinary women using their faith to accomplish extraordinary things. Sharon lives in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma with her husband and three very large dogs. Her books include: The Women of Valley View: Callie and The Women of Valley View: Terri, both of which are currently available. The Women of Valley View: Pam has just released this month.

Welcome, Sharon. What fun or unique things can you tell us about yourself?
My favorite pet of all time was a 5 ft Iguana. I raised her from a 6 inch baby. Her name was Cocoa. Snorkeling is my favorite water activity. I once got James Doohan (Scotty from the original Star Trek) lost in Oklahoma City.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
I love to take interesting trips and vacations. If I can have that one week to look forward to, it gets me through the other 51. My oldest daughter and I are taking an Alaskan cruise at the end of May.

If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus), who would it be? Why?
That’s a hard question with a lot of potential answers. I think I’d like to have a meal with Bill Cosby. He’s had such a long career. I know there is humor there, but heartache as well. He seems to be so wise and down to earth. I’d like to see if he really is, or if that’s just my personal take on the man.

Please tell us about The Women of Valley View: Pam.
Pam’s divorce broke her heart. The cruelty of her ex-husband broke her spirit. A bottle of sleeping pills almost took her life. Four years later the scars of Alan Archer’s emotional abuse are beginning to fade under the love of her new husband. When Alan returns to Garfield, Pam must learn that buried secrets and carefully cultivated indifference do not equal forgiveness.

Alan Archer has returned to Garfield with a new wife and a terminal heart condition. His mission? To leave a Christian legacy for his children and to gain Pam’s forgiveness for the sins of his past.

Two hearts hang in the balance waiting for the delicate touch of God’s healing hands.

What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading this book?
That we all deserve to forgive. Yes, I worded that correctly. The act of forgiveness might not mean a thing to the person we extend it to, but getting those old hurts and bruises out of our hearts will change our lives and the lives of the people around us. Sincere forgiveness is an individual choice.

Please tell our readers where they can get your book.

Any parting comment?
I’d like to offer your readers two free books. The first is a PDF intro to THE WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW series: MEET THE WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW.

Second is the link to the forever free novella I wrote and self published over the winter, For Mercie’s Sake.
