Giveaway and Author Interview: A Place of Acceptance

Welcome to Writing for Christ Julie Bell, it is great to have you here! Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know? 



I love Disney!  I collect Disney figurines and movies.



What surprised you the most about being a published author? 



I was surprised by this great feeling of humility that swept over me once the book was actually released.  It is amazing to write a story that God lays on your heart and have people read it and tell you they are touched by it.





Do you have a favorite genre to read/write? 



Christian fiction has been my favorite genre to read for many, many years and it is also the genre in which I write.



When you aren’t writing or interacting with fans, what do you enjoy doing? 



Spending time with my family and friends is my favorite thing to do.  I love to go to the movies and, of course, I love to read!  I am a French teacher, I have done some acting, I sing, and I love to ride horses.



What do you enjoy most about being a published author?



 I enjoy it when people tell me how their lives were impacted by the stories and how God used the stories to help them and also how the stories helped them to reexamine their relationship with God.





What do you like readers to take away from your books? 



I want readers to understand how deep and unconditional God’s love for His children is.  Specifically in my recently released novel, A Place of Acceptance, I want readers to walk away from the story realizing the importance of forgiveness and second chances.  God gives us forgiveness and second chances everyday and we need to recognize that and thank Him for it.  We also need to realize that we need to extend those same gifts to others.
