The Authors Speak

...listen to Christian fiction writers talk about their work

I interviewed several Christian fiction authors during 2007, and often included sound clips on my blog. Here are some of the wonderful authors I talked with (each sound clip is around 2 minutes or less):

I really like the picture of Sharon Hinck. If I'm ever famous or quasi-famous and have to get an official head shot taken, I'm going to make sure that I'm holding a cup of coffee, too. It just let's the public know how much you love coffee. I might go one step better and have me holding a live chicken while wearing a sombrero.

So, anyway...just wanted to say, "thanks" for commenting on my blog recently and decided I'd stop by to take a look. Nice blog.

Came over to take a look after reading today's Internet Cafe devotional. Loved looking at all the stuff about the books & authors. And the Evie info - I loved her when I was in high school! [ I'm old! :-) ]

Anyway, wanted to let you know about an incredible new book - you may already know of it, but I recommended it on my blog on Thursday (Jan 8).

Thanks for shining!
