When I can discuss my characters with others, they really come alive and it’s great to see what people get out of the struggles of the characters and the underlying themes of the stories.

Most people just discard them as unreal or nice fairy tales—whether because of the storytelling style or just because the setting is so foreign. But those stories were amazing and they really happened! So I wanted to explore what it would be like if a biblical-style miracle occurred today: what if a young virgin found herself pregnant in today’s skeptical world? Would she freak out? Would anyone believe her? What would her family members think/do? From there it became a great way to explore belief in general so I worked in the subplot with a spiritual-not-religious writer and an atheist doctor. That, combined with a devout protagonist made for a really interesting confluence of ideas.
