Welcome back to Writing for Christ Christa Allan, 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 novel, The Edge of Grace, which received a starred review from Library Journal, released in August. I just submitted Love Finds You in New Orleans with Summerside Press for release in 2012. In 2013, A Matter of Trust, one of the books in Abingdon’s quilt series will come out followed by a three-book series with Abingdon.
What recent read stood out to you as truly spectacular?
I read The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. Her prose is lovely, and her plot engaging.
Do you have favorite authors?
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Sarah Addison Allen, Elizabeth Berg, Joyce Magnin, Jenny B. Jones, Bill Bryson, Lolly Winston, Susan Meissner, Ann Patchett, Mary DeMuth
What do you find the most enjoyable part of writing or connecting with readers?
I am so humbled when readers email me to share themselves with me. It is truly a gift to be able to connect with readers.
What do you find the most ideal atmosphere for writing? Do you ever get those surroundings? J
A lanai facing the ocean in Maui. No!
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?
Jenny B. Jones and I challenge one another with 1,000 words/1 hours writing sprints. We did three one afternoon. Whew!
