Eric Wilson

One Step AwayAlthough Eric Wilson was born in California, and grew up in Oregon, his most enduring memories revolve around the time he lived in Europe where his parents served as missionaries, smuggling Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. He found life to be an adventure with all the different exotic cultures and people he came into contact with. 

During Junior high and High School, Eric found himself back in the states.  After graduation, he took time to travel in Eastern Europe and China, before returning to attend  Life Pacific College in California. Eric WilsonEric Wilson

During his junior year of college, a childhood friend began attending, and within months they were married. Twenty years and two daughters later, Eric and his family live in Nashville, TN where he and his wife still enjoy going on dates. 

 From an early age, Eric knew he wanted to be a Eric WilsonEric Wilsonwriter. He is passionate about telling stories about real characters who struggle with life’s questions and are thrown into some very suspenseful situations.  He also likes exploring earth’s ongoing tension between heaven and hell.

I recently had the opportunity to ask Eric a few questions.

Eric WilsonKristen:   What is your favorite thing about writing books?

Eric:  On the creative end, I love seeing the characters and story come to life, then hearing how readers filter those things in specific ways. On the publishing end, I love seeing the cover for the first time. It gives the new baby a face.Eric Wilson

 Kristen:   How about your least favorite thing about writing?

 Eric:  I get tired of sitting for thousands of hours a year alone at my desk. It’s a marathon of the heart and mind.Eric WilsonKristen:  Do you have an all time favorite character that you created?

Eric:  Oh, don’t ask me to choose from among my “children.” I love Sgt. Turney. And Gina Lazarescu. I want to do more stories with Cal Nichols someday. My favorite, though, would have to be Aramis Black.Eric WilsonKristen:  I’ve noticed lately that quite a few really good Christian authors were either missionary kids, or were/are missionaries themselves. How do you think being a MK influenced you as a writer?

Eric:  Missionaries learn to adapt to other cultures and speak in ways that can be understood outside their own home. I think these are helpful for a novelist.Eric Wilson

 Kristen: In your new book, One Step Away, The Vreeland family is given material wealth as a test by Satan to see if they will abandon their faith in God. Most people consider financial success a blessing. Do you think they are misleading themselves?

 Eric:  Wealthis a distinctly American trait of spiritual blessing. All around the world, Christians serve the Lord in poverty, famine, and hardship. They will receive their reward in heaven. In America, many Christians receive their rewards here on earth. I don’t think money or wealth are wrong to have and enjoy, but I do think we are wrong to measure spiritual success by it. Hugh Hefner is a pretty wealthy guy, last I heard.Eric Wilson

 Kristen: Just for fun, would you tell us something really crazy you have done, or something about yourself that would really surprise your readers?

 Eric:  I used to live in the Himalayas, when I was a boy. I’ve seen the Taj Mahal, Petra, the Great Wall, and some of the other wonders of the world. And yet, I’ve never gone overseas with more than a few hundred dollars in my bank account. The walk of faith is exciting and often unnerving. Believe me, I’d love to be independently wealthy so I could focus my energy on other things. Maybe God knows I need a fire lit under me to motivate my writing. Maybe someday I’ll learn. Or maybe, just maybe, I’ll have to wait for a reward on the other side and serve and love Him with all my heart down here.

Eric Wilson

 Eric has written eleven published novels through Waterbrook press, Thomas Nelson, and most recently through Bay Forrest Books.

FBI Agents Wife Critically Wounded

Targets Down by Bob Hamer

If the degenerates knew that the lady who witnessed them dumping a body was the wife of a FBI agent, they would have thought twice before leaving her for dead on the mountain overpass, because now Matt Hogan is on the case.

Matt Hogan’s job requires him to become like the slime he’s working to put behind bars.  The undercover FBI agent  finds himself living life on the edges of a branch of the Russian Mafia–a neo-Nazi group involved with all sorts of illegal enterprise including the sex-slave industry.

When his “in” is murdered, Hogan wonders if his cover is blown before he even gets started.  Surviving so many close calls during this operation have him seriously considering that the God his wife puts her faith in might be real after all.

An excellent read, this book was clearly written with the male reader in mind.  It is fast paced and action driven.  It is clear that this author, a retired undercover FBI agent himself, knows what he is talking about.  The undercover situation has a truly authentic feel I didn’t know was missing from other similar novels until reading this one.

One thing to note:  There is a bit more of the marriage relationship described between the agent and his wife than is typical in Christian novels.  Nothing too over the top, but enough that I won’t let my 15-year-old daughter read it.

I give this book 5 stars.

This book was provided to me for review from the publisher through NetGalley.  All opinions are my own.

C.J. Darlington

C.J. Darlington burst onto the scene of Christian fiction three years ago when she won the Jerry B Jenkins Christian Writers Guild Operation First Novel Contest with her first novel, Thicker than Blood

Books have been a part of C.J.’s life since she was a young child–both as a writer and a reader.  She says every book she read influenced her in some way, but it was as a young teen when she read Piercing the Darkness by Frank Peretti that things changed. “Nothing was the same after that”, she said.

When she was fifteen, she started writing the book that would eventually become Thicker than Blood.  But as C.J. says, writers aren’t born overnight.  She finished writing the book many years after she began writing it.  In 2004 She entered the book in the Operation First Novel Contest run by The Christian Writers guild.  At the time the book was only 67,000 words and needed a lot of work.  It placed as one of the twenty semi-finalists, and gave C.J. the self-esteem boost she needed to begin submitting the book to publishers.

So C. J. submitted the book and was rejected, and she submitted the book again and was rejected again.  This situation repeated itself over and over again.  Some editors were kind enough to give her suggestions, so C.J. would tweak the manuscript, add to the story, and submit it again.  Eventually she began to become so discouraged by the rejections that she was ready to pack the book away in a drawer and begin focusing on getting her second book published.

C.J. decided to give the book one more chance and submit the much improvedC.J. Darlington version to the 2008 Operation First Novel contest.  She figured that if it placed again she would know that the book wasn’t completely rubbish, and if it didn’t she would know that it was time to move on.  She entered the book two weeks before the contest closed for the year.  In November C.J. Darlingtonshe found out the book was one of four finalists being considered.  She was elated and decided that maybe the book was publishable after all.

In February at the Christian Writer’s guild annual conference, C.J. was amazed when they announced on stage that Thicker than Blood had won the contest.  She received for winning, a contract with Tyndale house.  Thicker than blood was released in 2010.  Her second novel, Bound by Guilt was released in February 2011.

C.J. Darlington is an identical mirror image twin who was homeschooled throughout her school days.  She loves camping (the more primitive the better), and has traveled the country in an RV visiting 44 states and having all kinds of crazy adventures.

She has been in the antiquarian bookselling business for over twelve years, scouting for stores similar to the ones in her novels before co-founding her own online bookstore.  In 2006 C.J. and her sister Tracey founded the Christian Entertainment website TitleTrakk.

I recently had the opportunity to interview C.J.  Here’s what she had to say:

Kristen:  You’re involved in writing, bookselling, and running an entertainment website.  If you weren’t doing any of these things, what would you most likely be doing?

C.J.:   I would love to be involved with something that involved animals or working outdoors. Lately I’ve had a real love of horses–learning how to ride, train, and understand them. It would be awesome to have the chance to work with them on a daily basis. Especially if I could work alongside someone who was much more advanced and skilled.

Kristen:  You say on your webpage that as a child you enjoyed reading the Childhood of Famous Americans series and the Landmark series, both historical fiction.  If you could  know one of these historical figures personally, who would it be?

C.J.:   I remember loving a book on Sacagawea. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to hear her perspective and insights on the Lewis and Clark expedition? Or Pocahontas. I went through a huge phase as a kid fascinated with the American Indians. I’m not really sure why, but I loved reading about them.

Kristen:  What does C.J. Stand for?

C.J.:   A girl’s gotta have some secrets, Kristen!! 🙂

Kristen:  How do you think being homeschooled has contributed to your success as an author?

C.J.:   Being homeschooled was HUGE for me. I truly believe that if it weren’t for homeschooling I wouldn’t be talking with you today about writing. I learned how to teach myself through learning at home. That’s enormous for me now as an adult. If I don’t understand something or want to learn something new, I don’t necessarily have to go out and take a course on the subject. I can research and discover for myself. I learned how to write fiction purely on my own through reading other novels and how-to books on the craft. Asking advice from others also played a part, but I am so thankful to my parents for making the sacrifices they did to enable me to be educated at home.

Kristen:  I’ve heard a lot of talk among Christian authors on balancing storytelling with sharing biblical truth.  How does your faith affect what you write?

C.J.:   My faith is the reason I write the stories I do. I want to share with others the hope I have. I do that by writing about flawed characters, usually at their lowest points. I want people to know that no one is ever too far gone for God to love and forgive. Some of my stories are more direct than others, of course. But the spiritual aspect is always there in some fashion or another. I don’t always know the direction the story will take along these lines until I’m in the midst of writing it, but I try to pray and ask the Lord for guidance. He’s given me ideas at the spur of the moment that have really surprised me! If one person is touched by what I write, it will be worth it.

Kristen:  Do you have a work-in-progress right now?

C.J.:  Yes, ma’am! I am currently writing my third novel and am about halfway through the rough draft. I’ve gone through a couple drafts of this story already, but I think I might’ve finally discovered the story I want to tell. I’ll keep you posted!

Brandilyn Collins

C.J. with Brandilyn Collins. Long before it was published, Brandilyn actually critiqued an early version of a scene in Thicker than Blood on her blog.

If you haven’t read C.J.’s books, be sure to pick them up sometime soon.  You won’t be disappointed.

Ronie Kendig

Ronie Kendig, a self proclaimed Army Brat, grew up in the classic military family with her father often on temporary duty and her mother holding down the proverbial fort.

Both of her  parents were born in other countries.  Her dad had US citizenship through his father, but her mom immigrated to the States when she was 18 and later became naturalized.  Also, Ronie has one brother.

Their family moved often, which left Ronie attending six schools by the time she’d entered fourth grade.  Her only respite and “friends” during this time were the characters she created.

It was no surprise when, more than twenty years ago, she married a military veteran.  Ronie describes her husband Brian as her real-life hero.    Despite the craziness of life, Ronie finds balance and peace with her faith, family and their two dogs a Golden Retriever, and a Maltese Menace in Dallas, TX.

Ronie’s mornings and days are spent  with her four children whom she homeschools (the first of which graduated in 2011), and then after dinner, she locks herself away and writes.  Some days she can get 2-3 chapters done, others, 2-3 pages.

Ronie has a deep love and passion for people, especially hurting people, which is why she pursued and obtained a B.S. in Psychology from Liberty University. Ronie is an active member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and has volunteered extensively,  serving in capacities ranging from coordinator of a national contest to appointment assistant at the national/annual conference.

Since launching onto the publishing scene in 2010, Ronie and her books have been gained national attention, including:

  • Finalist in Christian Retailing’s 2011 Readers’ ChoiceRonie Kendig Awards (Nightshade)
  • Romance Writers of America’s Faith, Hope, & Love’s 2011 International  Readers’ Choice Awards in Romantic Suspense (Nightshade)
  • 2011 FamilyFiction Ronie KendigReaders’ Choice Awards – 8th place with Nightshade, 3rd place as New Favorite Author
  • INSPY Award Shortlist final in Mystery/Thriller (Dead Reckoning)Ronie Kendig
  • The Christian Manifesto’s 2010 Lime Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction (Nightshade)Ronie Kendig

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Ronie.  Here’s what she had to say.

Kristen:  When you’re not writing, what do you enjoy spending your time doing?

Ronie:  I prefer to do something—anything—that puts me in motion, whether painting/redecorating, shopping, or being out with my kiddos. It really helps invigorate me and stir up creativity!

Kristen:  You really have a heart for military personnel.  What do you see as the biggest struggle for our servicemen and women today?

Ronie:   Despite great advances in the military’s recognition of PTSD and TBI (traumatic brain injury), there is still a great need to support our troops in a variety of ways. Many of the enlisted struggled to support their families on tiny wages while veterans are seeing severe benefit cuts (I know of one retired officer who’s disability pay was cut ninety percent—and he’s nearing retirement!). So, I think anything we can do, like partnering with organizations like Soldiers’ Angels and The Wounded Warrior Project to reach out to our military heroes is very beneficial.

Kristen:  Do you have a current work in progress?

Ronie:  Indeed, I do—I’m currently working on the last pieces of research for the military war dog series Barbour Contracted in January. The first book, Trinity: Military War Dog, will release in August 2012.

Kristen:  Which of your characters would you most want to be friends with?

Ronie:   Now, that’s not fair and could get me in a lot of trouble with my characters. LOL Let’s say each of them has a unique quality that I would love to have around. Max—his no-nonsense, get the to the heart of the matter approach. Cowboy’s Southern charm and deeply rooted faith. Canyon’s quiet but quick intelligence and sense of honor. Legend’s unflappable personality and his ability to believe in others when they don’t’ believe in themselves. Then there’s all the women of Nightshade. . .

Kristen:  How do you think moving around so much and changing schools as a child affected the way you view friendships as an adult?

Ronie:  It affected me great—both in my education and my friendships. As an adult, I’ve had to learn how to nurture friendships, how to be a friend. I’m used to moving a lot and often and not really having deep roots in anything or any friendships. It’s nice, however, with the internet to have friends for years and reconnect with those friends I had in high school. It’s challenging to say the least.

Kristen:  What type of books do you like to read and who are your favorite authors?

Ronie:  There are three basic types of books I like to read: thrillers, historical (can you believe it?), and supernatural/speculative. My favorite authors include Robert Liparulo, Stephen Lawhead, Kathy Tyers, Steven James, Joel Rosenberg, Lisa Bergren, MaryLu Tyndall…

Ronie has described herself as being A Jelly Fish in a Rhino Industry.   She’s very sensitive, empathetic and softhearted.   “I can sense pain and heartache.” she says, “I’m not easily angered—unless I see someone being made fun of or ridiculed.  I take things personally. . .because life is personal—it’s about people, about those around me.”

As I said in my review , if you only read one book this year make it Wolfsbane by Ronie Kendig–You won’t be disappointed.

5 Star Worthy

Jeanette Windle

A daughter of American missionaries, Jeanette Windle grew up in the jungles and small towns of Colombia, now guerrilla hot zones.  Jeanette graduated from Prairie Bible College in Three Hills, Alberta.  In 1985, Jeanette and her husband Martin moved to Bolivia to work with a nondenominational Christian mission organization. While her husband served as director, Jeanette worked with women and children at risk in varied regions of Bolivia.

Jeanette Windle

Jeanette WindleJeanette’s first book, Kathy and the Readhead,  was a group of stories based on her life growing up at a Missionary Kid Boarding School.  This was followed by the six books of the Parker Twins Adventure Series, a young adult mystery-suspense series set in a multi-cultural background, and a teen novel Jana’s Journal.

Her first major adult political/suspense novel, CrossFire Jeanette Windle(2000), was set against background of the counter-narcotics Jeanette Windlewar in Bolivia she was witnessing firsthand, This was followed by The DMZ (2004), set in the guerrilla zones of Colombia where she grew up, and FireStorm (2004) the sequel to Crossfire.  These were published all by Kregel Publications.

Betrayed (2008), set in the background of Guatemala’s fifty year civil conflict, was released by Tyndale House Publishers.   Veiled Freedom (2009), set in Afghanistan, was a 2010 Christy Award finalist and 2010 Christian Book Award finalist.  Her newest book, Jeanette WindleFreedom’s Stand (2011), is the sequel to Veiled Freedom.  It was released in  June, and Jeanette Windlewas nominated AWSA (Advanced Writer Speaker Association) 2011 Golden Scroll Novel of the Year.

Jeanette and her husband Marty moved to Miami in 2000, and to Lancaster, PA, in 2006.  Jeanette  speaks and travels extensively both in the U.S. and internationally, and serves as consulting editor and mentor to developing writers  in the U.S. and abroad.  She is currently president of Lancaster Christian Writers.

I had a chance recently to ask Jeanette a few questions.

Kristen:  You have been to many countries over the years. If you could visit one country you haven’t been to before where would you go?

Jeanette Actually, I have many countries on my ‘bucket list’ to visit someday, so it is hard to nail it down to one. If you’d asked a few months ago, I’d have said Israel, a country I never expected in my lifetime to have opportunity for visiting since I usually only travel for ministry. But God opened the doors beyond all my expectations to spend 12 days in Israel just this last spring. So I would have to narrow it down to my current top five: Greece, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Indonesia and Democratic Republic of Congo. The last two are because of ministry partnerships there, so it is NOT a coincidence that the others are all beautiful tropical islands. Growing up in Colombia and Venezuela, I was privileged to vacation on the Caribbean, which gave me a taste for tropical beaches.

Kristen: Your books contain Americans getting into some pretty scary and dangerous situations overseas. What is the scariest or most dangerous situation you have been in yourself while in another country?

Jeanette:   The scariest situations are truly ones on which I’d rather not dwell. Racing along an Andes mountain cliff in a bus with my four small children and a drunk driver behind the wheel. Thieves coming over the wall at night in Sucre, Bolivia, while my husband was on a trip, leaving myself and kids barricaded in the main house and a single female missionary barricaded in her apartment at the rear of the property. I LOVE heavy steel doors and thick bars on windows. A knife being held to my six month old son’s throat. Accidentally finding myself witnessing a drug deal while on a walk–and having to get out before being noticed. The usual pickpockets, riots, strikes, road blocks where local law enforcement are far more frightening than any guerrillas could be.

 So I’ll share the scariest one that was my own fault. My husband was again on a trip to mountain and jungle churches in Bolivia, leaving me with our three preschoolers (my life in our early ministry days) when a column easily ten feet wide of army ants headed up our short, concrete driveway towards our tiny, colonial-style house (600 square feet built around an unroofed central courtyard). With no husband to call and three small children to protect, I had to think fast. My five year old eldest son helped me as I splashed the column thoroughly with kerosene. I did make sure he went inside the house before tossing a match. I had no idea kerosene could explode so thoroughly! It did incinerate the ant column along with my bangs and eyelashes. It was truly a miracle I didn’t kill myself and leave three babies stranded until my husband came home.

Kristen Do you have a work currently in progress?

Jeanette I am currently writing what will be my next political/suspense novel set in the Ituri rainforest of northeast Democratic Republic of Congo, tentatively titled Congo Dawn.

KristenWhat kind of books do you like to read yourself, and who is your favorite author?

 Jeanette Perhaps as consequence of a life spent in so many countries and cultures, I can honestly say I have no favorites, whether foods, colors, countries, cultures, etc. I hugely enjoy the fabulous variety with which God has endowed this planet, and that includes literature as well. I will read anything of any genre as long as it is superbly written. Much depends what I’m currently writing. A few months ago my nightstand was filled with books related to Afghanistan, where my last two novels, Veiled Freedom and Freedom’s Stand, take place. Now for the same reason, it is filled with non-fiction and fiction related to the Congo, setting of my current WIP.  I read several books a week and enjoy all the most recent best-sellers as well as re-reading or discovering classics. Because I read so quickly and am constantly out of reading material, I LOVE having other readers inform me of a book they have loved and which I’ve yet to read—so feel free to send me recommendations.

 But here are a few of my top choices: When it comes to inspirational reading, the beautiful prose of Max Lucado and Philip Keller and the meditative profundity of A. W. Tozer, Andrew Murray, Brother Lawrence. Chaim Potok (The Chosen, The Promise) is a novelist who impacted me in sharing his passion for El Shaddai, Torah and his Jewish heritage in mainstream fiction as Christians so often hesitate to do. Fredrick Forsyth (Hunt for the Jackal, Odessa Files) and Leon Uris (Exodus, Armageddon) whetted my appetite for tight suspense interwoven with thorough political research. In other areas, I’m an eclectic reader, so have enjoyed the gamut of great writers in every genre:

1)      historical fiction: M. M. Kaye, Kenneth Roberts, Leon Uris; Elizabeth Goudge: The Dean’s Watch and her Pilgrim’s Inn series.

2)      political/suspense: Frederick Forsyth, Tom Clancy, John Grisham, Alistair McClain, Robin Cook;

3)      science fiction: J.R.R. Tolkien, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Patricia McKillip, Robin McKinley, C.S. Lewis;

4)      mystery: Agatha Christie, Mary Higgins Clark,  Mary Stewart, Madelaine Brent, Georgette Heyer;

5)      romance: I must say I’m still a sucker for a good Georgette Heyer, though all mine were tattered years ago;

6)      westerns: Louis L’Amour is the only one I read, but he is good enough to convert even a non-Western fan.

And so much more!

I have enjoyed getting to know Jeanette through her books and through Lancaster Christian Writers.  Having Read Veiled Freedom and Freedom’s Stand, I have begun to go back and read her earlier works.  I just finished Crossfire and am anxious to start it’s sequel Firestorm.  Having several friends who are missionaries in Bolivia, it has been interesting to get a feel for the culture through these well written stories.  Only an author who has been there is going to be able to so visibly bring across images like this one from Crossfire:

And the smell!  It settled over the car in an overpowering wave as Doug ushered the new passengers into the back seat.  Sara had never been at close quarters with the particular odor of the Bolivian campesino–a combination of infrequent washing, hand woven wool, no deodorant, and hours spent walking under a tropical sun–and she had to bite her lip to keep her nose from wrinkling with distaste.

God has definitely brought Jeanette through many life experiences that make her uniquely able to bring us the so many wonderful stories she writes.  I hope you will consider picking up one of her titles for your next read.

Miss Foolish Heart

Susan May WarrenEveryone in Deep Haven knows Isadora Presley is the town recluse.  What they don’t know is that she’s also Miss Foolish Heart, the popular syndicated talk radio show host.   Listeners to her show love taking her relationship advice but what they don’t know as they’re  is that Miss Foolish Heart has never even been on a date.

Isadora, known as Issy to her friends, has barely left her neighborhood since the accident that took her mother’s life and left her father a quadriplegic.  The world just seems so dangerous–why anything could happen.  Just look at all that has happened since the handsome new neighbor moved in next door.  That dog of his has been causing constant trouble not to mention that he insists on parking his huge truck right on top of her flowers.

Things have been going a bit crazy on the Miss Foolish Heart show too.  First the Governor of California’s daughter decides to settle for an imperfect man because she’s tired of waiting for Mr. Right, and she calls in to invite Miss Foolish Heart to the wedding.  If Issy can’t even make it  to  her best friend Lucy’s World’s Best Donuts’ shop right in town, how could she ever get on a plane.

Then a sweet young man calls the show trying to get advice for wooing his neighbor.  The listeners love this young man, and her ratings skyrocket.  Issy finds herself falling for this sweet young man even as she gives him advice on how to win another girls heart.  Oh, why can’t Issy find someone that perfect?

My Foolish Heart is the third installment in Susan May Warren’s Deep Haven series.  It is a perfectly delightful  read.  The pace keeps you moving right along, and you grow to love the characters more and more throughout the story.  As with all of Susan’s books, the descriptions and settings have the ability to transport you right into the scene.  I hope she plans to bring us more stories about the endearing people of Deep Haven.

I enthusiastically give this book 5 Stars.
