It's all about me...well mostly

Great title, huh? Well, actually there is this interview that's all about me. LOL! So, if you want to know how I answered questions like:
  • When and how did you know God had called you to write for Him?
  • In your opinion, what is the primary role of the fiction writer? Why?
Check out MaryAnn Diorio's blog for the answers.


BIG FAT JUICY SIDE NOTE: Check the scoop on Alison Strobel's book, Violette Between.

Alison Strobel graduated with a degree in elementary education, and in the summer of 2000 she moved from Chicago to southern California where she taught elementary school for three years. It was in Orange County that she met her husband, Daniel Morrow, and the story developed for her first novel, Worlds Collide.

Violette Between is a poinant story of a true artist. When the love of Violette's life, Saul suddenly died, she died too. Then she meets Christian, who also is morning the loss of a loved one.

As Violette and Christian begin to feel something that they both thought was impossible. Tragedy strikes again. Christian finds Violette on the floor of his waiting room, that she had been painting to look like a New York rooftop restaurant.

As Christian holds a vigil at her bedside, begging her to come back to him, Violette is in a coma, traveling to a place where she meets her beloved Saul. And she finds that she may not want to come back!

What would it be like to choose a place between the past and the present?

that was a great interview, Neenie! And it's greatness has nothing to do with the fact that my name was in it! LOL

Ah! Great interview. But that's not what the ah! is about. My next novel (which I'm forcing myself to wait on until I finish this one) is about genetic modification. A murder mystery based on a dream I had. I would love to chat with you about your research, find out where/how you did said research, all that jazz. I know what I want to write, but I don't know much about the science of it all.
Craziness. Great minds, I guess ;)
