Giveaway! Through Rushing Water by Catherine Richmond!


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

I was a member of our church's Jamaican mission team for five trips. What a delightful surprise to use that experience writing about a missionary to the Ponca Indian tribe in the 1870s!

Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?

Romance! Relationships are complicated and fascinating. With all the stresses, temptations, and distractions, it's a wonder anyone survives a date, much less marriage. With God's help, we can!

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

Deep point-of-view is like a movie camera inside the character's head.  My goal is to immerse readers so thoroughly in the story, that when an electronic buzz interrupts, they'll say cell phones haven't been invented yet and keep reading.

5 things you love?

My family. Oh, wait - you said things! Chocolate - my dream job is a taster for the Cailler factory in Switzerland. Books - the best blessing of writing is meeting talented authors who keep my To-Be-Read list full. Flannel sheets - year 'round softness. My car - all-wheel drive allows this southern driver to navigate Nebraska winters without white knuckles. And not a thing, but it's really on my mind - dogs. My husband has finally agreed to another dog. Please pray we can find one he'll love!


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

Rosslyn Elliot's Lovelier than Daylight is one you'll want your book club, youth group, and Sunday school class to read. It's set in the 1870s, but resonates with today's issues about how to be salt and light to the world.

  15. Thanks for reading Spring for Susannah, Emily! Jesse Mason is up for Fiction Hero of the Year - please vote! http://www.fictionherofeatures.com/2012/12/vote-now-for-2012-hero-of-year.html - it's a tough competition with Julie Lessman's Steven O'Connor! Welcome Katie, Samantha, lag123, Andrea! And yes, Shirley, when I found my heroine was a missionary, I was thrilled - I knew what it was like to be in a different culture, with such enormous challenges I wondered if I could ever make a difference - praise God that He works best in impossible situations!

    Thank you for the interesting interview. I went to the author site and read about the giveaway and am very excited. My grandmother was a homesteader in the Dakota Territory but that was a few years after the time in the book. She sold pies to the Indians and ran the post office. So and very interested in reading this book.
