June greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the honor of interviewing Jennifer AlLee, author of women's fiction - with great book covers, by the way. Her latest novel, The Mother Road, just released in April and is getting great reviews from readers who enjoy Jennifer's mix of humor and heart.
Jennifer, how did you get into writing?
I've been writing all my life. When I was a kid, I would write and illustrate my own stories. In high school, I wrote my first novel (quite a melodramatic romance) and I wrote another in college (again a romance, but not as melodramatic as the first). Fast forward a few decades and I held my first published novel in my hands.
I've had three books published so far: The Love of His Brother (Five Star, 2007), The Pastor's Wife (Abingdon, 2010), and The Mother Road (Abingdon, April 2012).
