Interview With Christian Bookshops Blog

Posted at 01:06am on 2nd August 2010

Only a months late with this diary event! A month ago today, I had the privilege of writing an article for Phil Groom who, in addition to managing the bookshop at London School of Theology, also runs the excellent Christian Bookshops Blog.

I'd been asked to write about "Who I Am, and What I Do?" and I rapidly realised that the two are inseparable. Writing runs in my veins and is the air in my lungs; therefore, as a book author I write and am nourished.

Tracing the history of those two strands in my life highlighted, for me, the privilege of being able to be content and thankful in all circumstances. The adversity I have experienced has been the subject and emotion of much of my writing. Rather than allow divorce, debt, daughter's drug addiction and death bow me down, I have found them to be a springboard for my published work.
