Teresa Lilly — Author Spotlight
Help me welcome author Teresa Lilly back today as I ask her some tough questions.
- How do you keep your sanity in our run, run, run world?
Writing about historical, imaginary towns helps me to keep sane. Whenever I create a town in a story, I make it a place I would love to live and while I’m writing about it, I find myself relaxed.
- What is the problem with writing that was your greatest roadblock, and how did
you overcome it?
Time. I wanted to write for years, but was busy raising three children and homeschooling. I finally worked out a plan to do my writing from 9pm to midnight, when everyone else was asleep, and that gave me the time I needed.
- Tell us how much of yourself you write into your characters.
Probably a lot. I usually write about strong willed women who are ready to handle to world alone, but don’t mind finding that Mr. Wonderful who helps them along. My characters often make foolish mistakes because of their strong headed ways, and I have done that so many times. But, as in my stories, God always shows them the way out.
Teresa Ives Lilly lives in San Antonio, Texas and writes Christian Romance Novellas like Love Found in the Snow: When Shera Logan stepped off the train to stretch her legs, she never expected to twist her ankle and be abandoned at a coal stop, sixty miles from the next town. After walking for hours, she realizes that she can go no further, so she lays down in the snow, makes a snow angel and her most special prayer asking God to either send someone to help her or to take her home.
Mathew Tucker, intent on returning to his ranch after a visit to town, never expected to find a woman collapsed in the snow almost frozen to death.
Will Shera’s prayers be answered by this cowboy who tries to save her or will she become a real angel….
