Giveaway and Author Interview: A Harvest of Hearts

Welcome back to Writing for Christ, Laura V. Hilton, I am excited to have you here for a second time. J

What has changed in your writing life since you were last here? 

My second book, A Harvest of Hearts has released from Whitaker House and I’m really excited about this book.

What recent read stood out to you as truly spectacular?

 I don’t think I read anything truly spectacular recently, but I do have one that I’m going to start reading today that sounds exciting—Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon. I enjoy her suspense novels, and am looking forward to getting into this one.

Do you have favorite authors? 

Yes I do.  Amish authors include Beverly Lewis, Mary Ellis, Suzanne Fisher Woods. WWII authors are Tricia Goyer.  Romance – Kristin Billerbeck, Sandra Bricker, Denise Hunter, and the list goes on. J

What do you find the most enjoyable part of writing or connecting with readers?

Writing is really enjoyable, but I have enjoyed getting to know some of my readers.

What do you find the most ideal atmosphere for writing? Do you ever get those surroundings? J 

Ideal?  Quiet… with no interruptions.  And no. I have five children. My computer is in the living room. And well – this is Grand Central Station. Need I say more?

Okay, something fun for those writers out there: In what point of your writing career did you surprise yourself by writing the most words ever in the shortest amount of time? 

We had Music School (www.brockwellmusicschool.com) this past summer, and my youngest daughter was able to go for the first time. My husband took the kids and stayed out there and I was able to stay home and write. I wrote more  than 35K in that two week period.



Thanks for being here again! It has been a joy and we wish the very best with your novels.

Thank you for having me!
