Toni Shiloh
Toni Shiloh is a wife, mom, and Christian fiction writer. Once she understood the powerful saving grace thanks to the love of Christ, she was moved to honor her Savior. She writes to bring Him glory and to learn more about His goodness.

She spends her days hanging out with her husband and their two boys. She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and president of the Virginia Chapter.

You can find her on her website.

Welcome, Toni. What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book? 
That we can find grace in the midst of our hurts and our sin. God offers it freely, we only have to accept it.

What is your favorite dessert? If you don’t like sweets. What is your favorite meal?
I love cheesecake. Salted caramel cheesecake. Caramel turtle. Pumpkin. I could go on.

Do you believe in writer’s block? If so how often do you get it? How do you fix it? 
Yes but mine comes in the form of character block. It’s like they refuse to talk to me or help me out with their story. So I pray and hound the characters and pray some more and write through the sludge. 

Lightning Round:
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? Beach!
Y’all or You Guys? Y’all. I was born and raised in Texas.
Biscuits or Dinner Roll? Bread. All. Of. The. Bread!
Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Summer! I love to be warm.
Laptop or Desktop? Laptop. So easy to use and carry around.
Mug or teacup? Mug. I’m afraid I’d break a teacup.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Grace Restored
Michelle Thomas has it all. Beautiful and successful, she’s just opened her own law firm in Freedom Lake. What more could she want? When her old flame rolls back into Freedom Lake, she’s intent on ignoring him. But how can she give the widower and his precious twin girls the cold shoulder?

Still reeling from the death of his wife, Guy Pierre returns to Freedom Lake to take over as town sheriff and raise his twin daughters. Alone. Yet, life keeps throwing Michelle in his path and sparks of interest began to rise. 

Will old secrets tear them apart again or can they find the faith to let God’s grace restore what has been broken?

    Toni, you had me with cheesecake and taking away from your writing the message of God's Grace in hurt and sin. We're practically soul mates based on nothing more. Haha!

    Blessings on your writing, because of your hearts intent in them to share Jesus.


    1. Sheila, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment.

  7. My favorite part of spring is the cool morning followed by a warm afternoon. I also love all of the spring flowers.

    1. Perrianne, thanks for coming by to leave your comment.

  8. My favorite part of spring is SUNSHINE :) It's been raining a lot lately with all the storms coming in. It's such a blessing to see the sun come out and the nature respond to it :)
