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?
Goodness, Casey, something interesting about me? That’s a tough one. I guess it would be that I dream so vividly, I can’t watch anything violent or too intense before bed or I will wake up dripping with sweat. I often run for miles and hide from bad-guys for hours, depriving myself of desperately-needed beauty sleep!
Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?
I love to read Amish inspirational romances, historical fiction, and romantic suspense. And I’ve been fortunate enough to be allowed to write all three.
Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?
Don’t be afraid to make changes to your manuscript. Nothing is set in stone until it hits your editor’s desk. I was so afraid I’d “lose the flavor” of my first manuscripts, that they still remain on my computer, unpublished.
5 things you love?
I love the beach in winter, snowstorms when I have nowhere to go, eating by candlelight in the dining room, grazing on finger food instead of a meal, and lying on my back to watch the clouds during daylight or the stars at night.
What novel have you recently read that has stood out to you that both teens and adults will find enjoyment in?
I just read Amanda Flower’s mystery, Maid of Murder, while on vacation. I loved it, especially since it was set close to my hometown.
