Giveaway! Living in Harmony by Mary Ellis!


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

I’m a natural blonde who once dyed her hair black. Now I’m a natural gray who dyes her hair blond. (Are we ever happy with our hair?)

Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?

I love to read Amish fiction and historical fiction set in the US, since I write in those genres. I also love Victorian English historicals, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance.

Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?

Never think you’re finished with a manuscript until you press the send button. I’m always tweaking and improving my story right up until my deadline.

5 things you love?

other than the Lord, I love:
1)      my college sweetheart and hubby of 38 years
2)      my 3-acre yard of woods, wildflowers (aka weeds), two ravines, one stream, one spring and a hundred-year-old barn
3)      eating out (after 38 years I’m tired of cooking.)
4)      being close to water (okay, even a toddler’s wading pool will do)
5)      corn (popcorn, sweet corn, corn bread, whatever)

What novel have you recently read that has stood out to you that both teens and adults will find enjoyment in?

I just finished The Believer by Ann H. Gabhart. What a fabulous story about faith and forgiveness set in this little-known Christian sect.

  9. I love corn, too! But then, I'm an Iowa girl so I think it's like an unwritten rule or something.

    Thanks for the great interview, Casey and Mary!
