About the book 

The Curious Prayer Life Of Muriel Smith

 

What is your writing schedule like?
My writing schedule is erratic. I spend much more time mulling over characters and plot progression than I do actually typing new next. However, I can spend hours revising.
What books have most influenced your life?
I've always loved Little Women, especially Jo, a fellow writer. I envy her garret and love her sisters. All the characters seem like friends. I also love A Christmas Carol – both book and movies. In non-fiction, The Hiding Place and The Heavenly Man remind me that God is still very much at work in modern times.
What is your next project?
My next project is a Young Adult novel entitled "Charlotte Masterson Gets a Life."
Do you have advice for other writers?
Go to a conference with a book proposal. Line up as many appointments as possible with agents and editors. Even if your work gets no offers, you'll get valuable professional input on what needs improvement. This is far more helpful than a form rejection letter. The lectures may be very good, but most of that information can be found in books. Get the one-on-one that is not available anywhere else.
What is the spiritual takeaway for your reader?
If God says no, He must have a better plan.
Is there anything edgy/possibly controversial in your book? 
Muriel's granddaughter is pregnant but not married. Some problems in the granddaughter's life are because of her situation.
What is your hero's main character flaw?
No ambition.
What is your heroine's main character flaw?
She's fearful. Fearful of driving and fearful of speaking up for herself lest she lose relationships.
What can readers learn from your villain?
Even a bad person can do an occasional good deed.
What makes your hero heroic?
He recognizes his character flaw and changes course.

what makes your heroine heroic?
She's willing to do the right thing even when it would be easier and/or more profitable to do the wrong thing.
