Welcome Barbara. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
I would like to dine with the woman at the well in John 4:1-22. I would want to know what Jesus was like, and what he did the days following her conversion when he met the people of her town. I would also like to find out how she felt about herself before and after she met Jesus.
What fun or unique things can you tell us about yourself?
I am a terrible typist so all my books are written on notepads. I did try to take a typing class in high school, but I was placed in biology instead. I never went back and taught myself the skill.
This October is special for me as I am a breast cancer survivor! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and last year I was newly diagnosed with breast cancer. God is faithful and now I am feeling great.
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
This is easy. Any beach in Hawaii is my favorite spot. One of my novels is set on the island of Oahu and I hope to go back and visit someday. Sequel anyone?
What do you enjoy doing for relaxation?
I enjoy walking. Sometimes I figure out a scene or a plot point while I am on a walk. Summers in Wisconsin are short, so I enjoy the flower-filled landscape when I can, and it’s always fun to spot deer—but not when they’re by the road.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Providence: Hannah’s Journey.
As the sole daughter of the chief priest, Hannah is publicly shamed when the prophet of Israel refuses to
Determined to restore her family’s honor, Hannah escapes Jerusalem in hopes of finding the prophet and convincing him to heal her deformities. Gilead, a young Hebrew guard sympathetic to her plight, willingly accompanies her. On their way, they are captured by a band of raiders.
Hannah is forced to serve in the household of the commander of the Aramean army, an officer who is in need of healing himself. Meanwhile Gilead is being used as sword practice for the Aramean soldiers.
Hannah must act fast to save Gilead and herself. But survival means coaxing the prophet of Israel to heal an enemy commander.
