Author Scoop! ~ Chatting Moments With Brenda S. Anderson

It’s with utmost delight that I introduce Brenda to you today! She’s an author dear to my heart for many reasons, but I’ll name a few: our debut novels got published in the same month; our blog tours were running concurrently; we appeared on each others blogs during the tours; we both write outside of the “traditional” box as far as regular Christian fiction is concerned; our debut stories are similar in many ways (I would mention how, but then they’d be too many spoilers); etc. Anyway, I reviewed Brenda’s debut book two days ago; you can read the review here. It’s a lovely book which I think everyone should read. I was blown away by it. And, now, I have the honor of hosting Brenda in an interview today.

Thank you so much for welcoming me to your …

My Roller Coaster Writing Journey

  Just for the record, I love roller coasters. I love the speed, the highs, and lows, and twists, and turns. I love the adrenaline rush, the air time, the dark places, and even the moments of fear. I enjoy it because I know I’m safe, and that I will arrive in one piece at my destination. My writing journey has been very much like a roller coaster ride. It’s been a long one, having stepped on it back in 2005. Actually, I’ve been writing all my life, but it was in 2005 that I fulfilled my dream of writing a full novel. That first novel was a joy to write. The words flowed so quickly, I could barely take time away from my computer, and, a mere three and a half months after I’d put fingers to keyboard, I’d completed a 130,000-word story.
