Giveaway and Author Interview: Digitalis

Welcome to Writing for Christ Ronie Kendig, it is great to have you here!

Thank you so much! I’m delighted to visit with y’all!

Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know?

While many people probably know (through my bio) that I grew up a military brat, most aren’t aware that by the time I’d hit 4th grade, I’d attended six schools. That does not make a very ground for a solid education, and because of that I really struggled in school.

Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?

There are three genres I tend to read a lot (suspense/thriller, speculative, historical (believe it or not)), but I think suspense/thriller outweighs the others, especially supernatural thrillers.

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

The biggest thing for me was to realize that the pure reason I am writing is to give God pleasure—He gave me a gift, and He finds immense pleasure in seeing me use that gift. Nothing else. Not me writing to bless someone else or hit a bestseller list. Not me writing and producing. Simply me putting to use a gift He gave me. That was so incredibly freeing and thrilling to come to terms with.

What do you enjoy most about being a published author?

Meeting people and hearing their stories. It’s amazing to me how hearts open and unfold, revealing painful and beautiful stories, when someone hears I am an author. I love this because it’s exactly what Jesus did—He told stories and reach past barriers and got under the ‘radars’ of people who were not interested in hearing biblical truths.

Places for readers to learn more about you?

Through my website ( ) or the Discarded Heroes site ( ). I’m also on Facebook and Twitter!

  5. Follower, subscriber, twitter :).

    Ronie - this series is on my 'to buy' list - funds are too limited at the moment cuz of saving for ACFW but I've been watching this with mucho interest! Right up my alley - love this kind of thing. Love military books [though Digitalis reminds me of an NCIS ep where Digitalis plays a major role].

    Thanks Casey!
