Welcome to Writing for Christ Carole Towriss, it is great to have you here! Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know?
Well, you can find out a lot on my website, like we have four kids, and three are adopted. What is less known is that their appearances in our life are all connected to holidays. Our oldest, Emma was born on Christmas Eve. The next we brought home on Orthodox Easter (a week after Easter). We spent our Easter in Kazakhstan with her. And the youngest two we brought home two days before Thanksgiving.
Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?
Biblical fiction. I love going deeper into the story, especially with characters that are lesser known.
Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?
Use as many senses as you can when describing a setting—or anything. Not just sight and sound, but taste, touch, smell. Bring the reader inside the character’s head with you.
5 things you love?
Ummm … my husband and four kids? J
1. The beach
3. Mexican food
5. A hot bath and a book
What novel have you recently read that has stood out to you that both teens and adults will find enjoyment in?
I’d say Rodeo Hero by Sharon Vannatter, but it’s hard to find. Rodeo Ashes is the sequel. Both deal with the consequences of sex before marriage, and God’s forgiveness and redemption. I think girls and their moms would like them.
