Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I was first published in 2007 under a former married name (Burgen). That book was entitled Daniel's 70th Week. I plan on rewriting it utilizing Amazon. My current book "Becoming Still A Journey With Yahweh" was published in October 2016.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Becoming Still A Journey With Yahweh began in my search for meaning and purpose for my life. I started writing in a journal and reading everything I could get my hands on that talked about destiny and purpose. I didn't initially seek out God, rather He sought out me. Which still boggles my mind – yet I've learned how much He loves me and wants a relationship with us all.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I hand write everything first and try to write most days. I don't type until I have a decent start to a first draft.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I have several versions of the Bible and utilize blueletterbible.org often. I don't have any specific author or book that I can point to. Instead I like all Christian non-fiction that point to purpose, destiny, spiritual journey, discovering who we are created to be, etc.
What are you working on now?
I am working on promoting my current book. I also write every chance I get. Soon I hope to organize the journal notes into my next book.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am still learning and hope to get some sort of system down.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write your heart out. If you are created to be a writer, let those words flow and don't worry about getting everything right!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Be yourself – who you are created to be. Be still and become aware and know who Yahweh is.
What are you reading now?
This changes quickly as I often move from one book to another and back and forth. But right now: The Esther Anointing by Michelle McClain-Walters and The Prophetic Promise of the Seventh Day.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I hope to get my current book promoted and begin to put together my second book.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Of course the Bible! But I also enjoy Christian books about our purpose.
