Welcome Janis to the blog.

What makes this book special to you?
This book is special to me because it takes two broken people and shows how God breathes new life into what others see as hopeless. It's easy to start thinking something is dead, buried, gone–whether that something is a heart, a relationship, or a secret dream. Like a rose in winter, a single touch from God restores hope and brings newness of life.
What book are you reading now?
Taming Julia by Jodie Wolfe. Julia (Jules) is such a charming and unique character that I fell in love with her within the first few pages. You just want to wrap your arms around her and protect her. I so appreciate characters who are easy to love.
What do you do when you're not writing?
When I'm not writing, I'm playing with our dogs … a Shih Tzu named Sophie, a German Shepherd named Judah, and a Chug (Chihuahua/Pug mix) who is the boss of the world and very aptly named Scrappy.
Do you have advice for other writers?
My advice to other writers is to always read books from authors who are a better writer than you. That way you'll grow in your understanding and your craft. I also advise any writer to attend at least one writer's conference every year. The depth of knowledge and the relationships you develop are priceless.
