Author Scoop ~ Interview with Jonathan Long

Jonathan is from small town, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. After being an atheist for a time in his life, he came to realize God as a loving father, and decided to dedicate his life and use his experiences to help others know God on a much deeper level.

Interview ~ Chatting Moments with Author & Screenwriter, Michelle Onuorah!

Once, pinterest paired me with Laura Frantz as my author twin, a truly sweet woman whom I feel I don’t visit her page often enough (Hey Laura!). In some ways, I can understand why I was paired with Laura, as some of our writing principles are the same. But if I had another twin, it would be Michelle. Her work is one of the best I’v ever encountered. We are alike not only in writing, but in heart. I’m delighted to have Michelle visit TBAP again! It wasn’t so long ago that she stopped by during the tour of her wonderful book, Jane, which was an amazing read (You can catch up on my review of Jane here). In her last visit, Michelle told us how she became a rock star! Eh …ahem. Sorry! I mean to say “a bestselling author” (but don’t the two mean the same thing?). Whatever! Anyway, today, I’m going to introduce you to Michelle, so you, too, can know her better. I assure you, she’s quite charming! So fellas, follow …
