At the top of your head, can you guess the author's name who has had twenty-six books published in between searching out some new exotic tea?
My latest release is a coauthored novella collection entitled, Love Finds You Under the Mistletoe. I had the opportunity to work with Irene Brand on this project, and we became good friends in the process. My novella is entitled, Once Upon a Christmas Eve, and it’s a love triangle—two men in love with the heroine, Holly Goodnight. I hope readers are entertained and inspired with the story.
Anita: I hope readers come away knowing that God is watching out for them. That he really works all things for good. I’m also hoping they have some chuckles along the way. People, all people, need to laugh more. It’s good for us in so many ways.
Anita: Yes, I work with an agent. I’ve met agents in several different ways over the years, but I think one of the best ways to connect is to attend writer’s conferences. One important criterion is to make sure you get along well together. So, these one-on-one sessions at conferences are important. They give you time to chat and ask questions and get to know each other.
Anita: I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. Psalm 121:1 (KJV) I can’t say that I’ve used this verse recently, but it is an important verse in my life. It has brought me comfort many times over the years when my husband was traveling.
Anita: I do almost all of my work in my home office. That is where the juices flow for me. If I get stumped I usually run some errands, and by the time I get back I have my answer. So, I never underestimate the power of getting away from the computer for a few minutes to refresh.
Anita: Good question. I would love to set a novel in Italy. My husband and I were there several months ago. Very beautiful. Very romantic.
