This month, we are going to be focusing on being happier, and bringing things into our lives that bring us joy. One of the things that brings me great joy is reading! With that in mind, each week I am going to introduce you to a new author you may not have heard of before, AND we will give away a Kindle copy of that author's most recent book!
1. What inspires you to write?
This week, we are featuring Josie Blaine and her newest book Love and War. Josie is actually one of my very best friends, and we have known each other for over 20 years!!!!
I asked Josie some questions about writing (we asked all of our featured authors the same questions):
I write because I can't not write.
2. Who is your favorite author?
My favorite author of all time is Laura Ingalls Wilder.
3. Tell us a little bit about a book you have written.
Something About Sophia is the story of my great great grandmother. It is the tale of my family planting themselves on the plains, via the railroad and faith.
4. What new and exciting things do we have to look forward to from you?
A love story is on the way, and my publishing imprint, Sunflower Press ND, will be sharing stories of hope.
5. What helps you to stay happy?
My family is healthy. My friends are loyal, and my coffee is strong. Above all, God is faithful.
Josie's most recent book Love and War is a great fun, fast read. I enjoyed every moment, and it had me laughing and loving the characters! Set in the Dakotas, we see that "war stories" and "love stories" do not differ much from the past and the present. The book interweaves the stories to create a timeless story of love . . . and war.
