Welcome to Writing for Christ Marianne Evans, it is great to have you here! Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know?
Well, I can name two right off the top of my head. First, I’m a collector of antique salt cellars. These are the small, bowl-shaped containers that held salt cubes before pourable salt came into existence. They’re so beautiful, and often times
come with the tiny spoons that were used to chip and scoop salt onto food. Second, I’m a bread baker. Love the process of prepping, kneading and baking!!
Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?
Oh, yes. In fact, it’s my passion: Christian fiction and
Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?
Yes, and it comes through my former agent, now retired. Persevere through adversity and the
temptation to quit. Don’t ever, ever give up on the call God places on your heart and the passion
he’s given you to write! The stories are His, and you are His messenger. Don’t let anyone deter
you from that vocation!
5 things you love?
(God, along with my family and friends come first and foremost…so, let’s assume those facts are a given – LOL!!) 1) Uninterrupted, productive writing time. 2) Hot, buttered popcorn from the stovetop. 3) Guilt-free reading time. 4) Traveling. 5) Restful, uninterrupted sleep.
What novel have you recently read that has stood out to you that both teens and adults will
find enjoyment in?
Without question the “Bailey Flanigan Series” by Karen Kingsbury. Leaving, Learning, Longing and Loving are amazing reads that show a college-aged, devoutly Christian woman, coming into her own as life, and love unfold. This series shows anyone, no matter their age, the power of faith and putting their faith into action.
