Tomorrow’s the big day—the release of The Cowboy’s Bride, Barbour Publishing’s collection of nine Western romances. One of those romances is mine, “The Wrangler’s Woman.”
This may be my favorite story of all that I’ve written. I enjoyed the family dynamics, the longing uncovered, the hopes realized. The surprises.
Writing a book can be as surprising as reading one because the characters are full of their own ideas. As an author, you get a peek inside those ideas.
You also get to create the world around those characters, complete with struggles and obstacles and challenges. Why is it we don’t want any of those things in our real lives, but we want to see how fictional characters deal with them?
I believe the answer to that question is hope. When we read how a character overcomes a problem similar to one we are facing, we find hope that we can do the same.
That’s why I write inspirational fiction. I enjoy encouraging readers with examples of God’s presence in people’s lives and how His presence can make a difference in their real world.
