“I’m an optimist and I’ve been told that comes through in my storytelling. Even when my characters are at rock bottom, I try to keep them seeing the glass as half full or at least looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. With each story, my theme is always – Love doesn’t make the world go round, God does. Whether the story focuses on forgiveness, bitterness, grief, trust, or fear, I always make sure nothing works out for my characters until they give it to God – especially their relationships.”
