I never imagined I would write a novel, since I am not a writer by profession, but somehow the idea came to me for this story, and I just started writing. Then it was done before I had given much thought to what I was going to do with it when I finished.

When I started writing, I had not intended to write a "Christian" book, a clean romance yes, but not specifically Christian. The first half of the book is not very Christian, however, it just kind of got more Christian as I wrote it. I guess a person, or at least me, cannot separate their deeply held beliefs from anything they do, at least not when a person writes from the heart.

I don’t remember which author said it, but he/she said that the reason they started writing was because the kind of story they wanted to read didn’t exist. So basically, they were writing the kind of stories that they wanted to read.  That is what motivated me to write “Dear Tiz”. After exhausting all of the Georgette Heyer and Mary Stewart books available; I was stuck with nothing that I reall...

Aslaug Gørbitz Nice meeting you, too. I noticed you have trouble with your eyes and ebooks. I have the opposite problem. I had to go almost 10 years without reading because the font size in the print editions is always too small for me, even with reading glasses. Now that I have my Kindle I can set the font really big and I still use reading glasses. I am so happy to be able to read again.
Thanks,
Aslaug


Neveen Badr (Seraphina Reads) Thanks for adding me Aslaug.
I have to agree with you, having a top ten is a great thing but sometimes you just go mad when it comes to naming the top of them all.
It's an honor meeting you :) .

Thanks,
Nevey...
