Welcome, Linda. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be?
Mike Huckabee. He’s intelligent, witty, a writer, and a warm and friendly Christian man. I loved his television show, and I met him once at his book signing in Dothan, Alabama.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Natalie’s Choices.
Natalie’s Choices is Book One in my Faith and Family series
of novellas set in Vicksburg, Mississippi beginning in 1987. Natalie Hudson comes from a happy home with loving parents who take a special interest in their daughter. Natalie has goals and becoming a veterinarian is top of the list. She makes friends with Tori Rhodes, whose reputation is less than stellar. Tori comes from a single parent environment and is left on her own most of the time while her mother works overtime and tries to make a decent living for the two of them. Teen angst, endless trials, and life altering events abound and threaten the girls’ friendship as consequences unfold from both right and wrong choices. Natalie’s Choices cover won the 2014 cover of the year on the AUTHORSdb website.
What takeaway value do you want your readers to have?
That love and trust is most important in any relationship, but it’s especially important for parents to teach children about God’s love and forgiveness and show by example how to trust Him with both the little problems as well as the seemingly insurmountable ones.

Any parting comment?
I love flower gardening. It’s a toss-up as to which I cherish more—writing true-to-life stories about love, or growing beautiful buds and blooms. So these days I juggle my time between taking care of my house, husband, and spoiled little dog, gardening, and writing. I got a late start in my writing career, so I plan to just “write out” the rest of my life in my “write place” (landscaped patio).
