Welcome, Vannetta. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
My grandparents because I would love to have their perspective on the life and times they lived through.
What do you enjoy doing for relaxation?
I like to quilt, though I’m fairly new at it. I also exercise a lot. I garden, and of course I read several books a week. I also play the piano and that is very relaxing.
What can your readers expect from you next?
Sarah’s Orphans, the 3rd book in my Plain and Simple Miracles series releases on August 30th. Overshadowed, the prequel to Deep Shadows, will be a free ebook novella, and it will release on October 1st.
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
With all the marketing strategies and social media opportunities, there are still 2 very simple things that readers can do to help to make a book a success. First, tell a friend. Just tell someone you know loves to read about the book. Second, leave a review on Amazon. It can be short and simply include how the book made you feel. Both of these things are super helpful!
Please tell us a little about your novel, Deep Shadows.
All It Takes Is One Night to Plunge the World into Darkness
Life in Abney, Texas, is predictable and safe--until the night a massive solar flare wipes out all modern technology.
Shelby Sparks, novelist and single mom, had one goal: to provide for her diabetic son. In the wake of this global disaster, her mission hasn't changed. Only now, medication is a priceless commodity and the future resembles an apocalyptic nightmare.
Max Berkman and Shelby were once sweethearts, but he lost his chance at claiming her love years ago. When the abrupt loss of power ushers him into a leadership role, he rises to the occasion. But his highest priority--to keep Shelby and her son safe--could prove to be the biggest challenge of all.
As the brilliant northern lights give way to deep shadows, Max and Shelby's faith will be tested like never before. Only one rule remains: Find a way to survive.

Any parting comment?
Deep Shadows is a story about our ability to survive during terrible times, but it’s also a story of God’s grace--how He will continue to provide for us. How we can be confident of His provision even when the world around us is falling apart. Though it’s in the dystopian genre (which literally means an imperfect world), it’s essentially a story of hope.
