I am out and about sharing the news of my new release Almost There with new readers. But I thought you lovely folks might be interested in seeing excerpts and interviews and some thoughts on developing a character's faith.

Writer's Alley

As part of her regular feature "YA in the Alleyway," Sheri Larsen interviewed me about Almost There--my writing process, setting, characters, and what's next.

She is also hosting a giveaway of  the prequel Never Gone. Just leave a comment on the post for a chance to win!

Author spotlight with Catherine Bennett

Catherine writes Christian romances and invited other faith writers to share a bit about their new releases this summer.

There I share one of the romance scenes from Almost There. As you might guess from the book blurb, Dani gets into some romantic messes in this story. Long-term dating relationships take work, and even the best ones can suffer serious shake-ups in the midst of family crises and separation.

Haven of Hope

My approach to writing Christian YA has been to write a character for whom faith is a natural part of life. It’s Dani’s framework for understanding the world, just like her artistic ability is. The imagery and stories of her faith weave through her thought world as much as the language of painting and drawing.

In my guest post for Shayla Hilton's blog "Haven of Hope," I talk about the hope that we, like Dani, can draw from  not only knowing specific verses in the Bible, but also drawing parallels between our experiences and those of Bible characters. Which Bible prophets inspire Dani to do the right thing when she'd rather run?

What are you up to these days?
