“I have always enjoyed reading suspense romance and mysteries. So I’ve leaned toward [writing] that. But more than the genre, I want to go deeper and let the reader discover God’s redemptive power even through the tough issues of our society and the devastating circumstances life throws in our direction. I hope that encourages them to seek that in their own situations.”
