What’s your favorite book/book series and why?
I’m pretty sure my answer to this question changes every time I’m asked. At this point, probably Lord of the Rings. It’s beautifully written, encouraging, it captures the value of everyday life and ordinary people perfectly, it pushes the reader to be courageous for the sake of those things that are important like home and family… It’s a classic for good reason.
Who is your favorite author?
Another one I think changes every time I think about it. Tolkien, Lewis, C.R. Wiley, Andrew Peterson, Nadine Brandes… What anyone who makes my list has in common, though, is a deep understanding of the power of good art and producing things that build God’s Kingdom.
What is your favorite food?
Cheesecake. That totally counts as food.
What gives you inspiration for your books?
Life? XD People I talk to, places I go, concepts I come up against in everyday life, things that are important to me, things I read, things I watch… I take inspiration from a lot of things, lol.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
For a couple years I really wanted to live in Tennessee. I still wouldn’t mind that. But Ohio was really nice, and I loved the rural area where I worked and loved getting to work on a farm and help tend animals and grow things, so I think wherever I end up I’d like to live someplace with space to work with the land and someplace with few enough trees to see lots of sky. (Ohio brought to mind the song “Big Sky” a lot, lol.)
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I’m an extrovert, but most people wouldn’t guess it since I’m usually quiet and I’m also able to be content with my own company. I can operate as an introvert for longer than most extroverts, I think, but I do get a lot more energy from being around people and having conversations than from being by myself.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
I have no idea. I feel like I usually keep myself contained until I’m already familiar enough with someone that I don’t think they need a warning anymore and I’m pretty confident they’ll just take it in stride. Then they get the rambling conversations about random things that interest me, the frequent bursts into song, the philosophical and theological debates, etc. Some people reach that point sooner than others, but I tend to try to make it gradual so that I don’t need a warning label, lol.
