Janell Butler Wojtowicz, born and raised on an Iowa farm, was one of those kids who loved to write the dreaded “What I did on summer vacation” essay. It’s no surprise that she has spent her entire 30-year career in writing, including journalism, Christian higher education public relations, and local government public information. She is a freelance writer/editor, and a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. Janell and her husband, Frank, live in New Brighton, Minnesota. She has two step-sons and three step-granddaughters.

I wish Jane Austen would have written a sequel to see how their strong personalities played off each other. I picture them passionate, yet brutally honest with each other, especially when it comes to her family and his snooty friends. Can you imagine them raising kids? Can you imagine what their kids grow up to be?

In Christian fiction, Becky Sawyer and Luke Masterson (The Isaac Project, Sarah Monzon). She knows what she wants, until it’s placed before her and her independence and self-doubt emerge. He wants to be a good husband, to “woo” and protect her, to let Becky be herself. Naturally, there are fireworks—and horse snot. They are a dynamic force to be reckoned with when love finally kicks in.(less)

I've been a professional writer for 33 years, and often had to write when I wasn't in the mood because I was staring at a deadline. I'm one of those writers who doesn't start at the beginning and write chronologically. I write sections when the ideas and words come. I'm big on leads in journalistic and feature writing, but when I couldn't think of a lead I would start out with facts, quotes, descriptions, background, etc. Eventually the lead would present itself. The same thing happened with "Embracing Hope." I built most of the story, and developed three different first chapters before finally settling.(less)

Recent severe weather in Iowa spawned tornadoes that, thanks to amateur video, have appeared on Facebook garnering thousands of shares. I took particular attention as I’m from Iowa and understandably concerned—and a little curious—about the goings-on there. Plus, I have experienced tornado warnings, straight-line winds, and dealt with the aftermath of the destructive force of wind when I was[im...
