Welcome to Writing for Christ, Sarah Sundin, Cara Putman and Tricia Goyer. It is great to have ALL THREE of you! What brought the three of you together to write this collection of stories?
Cara: It was my idea because I’d written in a couple novella collections for Barbour and wanted to do one that focused on WWII at Christmas. I was so DELIGHTED when Sarah and Tricia said yes, they’d do this with me.
Sarah: It was Cara’s idea to write a WWII Chris
Tricia: Well, since I adore these two women—and their writing—it wasn't hard to say YES. Cara brought up the idea and after one phone conversation with both Cara and Sarah, we were off! Get three writers, who are passionate about the same time in history, together and it's easy to have
something fun to write about!
Yes, I’m asking you to play favorites…which of your books is your favorite, published or unpublished?
Cara: This is a super tricky question to answer. I’d have to say a tie between Stars in the Night and Shadowed by Grace. Shadowed by Grace. Exploring Italy vicariously was fun, too. I hope to actually see all the places I wrote about one day.
Sarah: That’s like picking my favorite child—they each have their strengths and weaknesses, and I love them all equally. Right now I’m in the middle of writing a new series, so I’m looking back fondly on my most recent series, especially the last book, In Perfect Time. It was the easiest book of the series to write because I knew all the characters well by then, and I couldn’t wait to tell their stories. Plus it had one of the most exciting storylines I’d written.
Tricia: This is one of the hardest questions ever! I have to say it might be Night Song because it's set in The Czech Republic (for Czechoslovakia). That's my favorite country outside of the United States, and it's a World War II novel. It's based on true stories from the veterans I love, and now my daughter is a missionary there. That book has a special place in my heart.
What is your chosen preference of genre to read and why?
Cara: I’m split between WWII and contemporary romantic suspense. I adore telling the WWII stories, but also enjoy a good page-turner laced with romance.
Sarah: Of course, I love historical fiction, but I also love women’s fiction, contemporary
romance, the classics, and some suspense. Even occasionally some fantasy!
Tricia: My favorite genre to read is historical fiction. I love getting the chance to “live” in different times in history. I learn so much as I read. It's like having a time machine without having to leave my couch!
