Welcome to Writing for Christ Rachel Hauck, it is great to have you here! So you’re a writer? What made you decide to start creating characters and story world?
Rh: I always wanted to be a writer. My dad used to tell me I was a writer. Finally, at the age of 32, the Lord called me to quit my job and in the lull time of not having a pressure packed schedule, I started writing. Christian fiction was very young and new in those days, and WW2 novels dominated the shelves. So I started an epic WW2 novel. It was rejected but I was able to actually use part of that book in Love Starts with Elle.
What is the one title that has significantly impacted your life?
RH: Probably Song of Abraham by Ellen Gundersen Traylor. That book really made me understand I could be a friend of God’s.
If you could get a do-over when it came to learning this whole thing called writing, what would you go back and tell yourself?
RH: Don’t take it all so seriously. Yes, it’s your career and your passion but take it all in stride. There’s more to life…
