Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska - Author Interview Part 2

I had the pleasure of reading this wonderful book by Tricia Goyer and Ocieann Fleiss. If you have not had a chance check out my two previous blog posts. Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska - Preview Post and Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska - Review Post In these posts you will find out more about the book, ways to pre-order, pictures of Glacier Bay, and what I thought about the book. I hope you take the chance to check everything out. In this post I am going to give you a glimpse into author Tricia Goyer's world. Thanks for stopping by. 

How did you become a writer?
I first thought about writing in 1993. A friend from church, Cindy Martinusen told me about her aspirations to become a novelist. My first thought was . . . Real people do that? She invited me to attend Mount Hermon Christian Writer’s Conference with her. I was new as new can be. I was also 22-years-old and pregnant with my third child, but I learned enough at that conference to start off on the right track. And I’ve been actively working at my writing ever since.

What inspires you to write?  
Here is a video talking about that! Tricia's Video about what inspires her to write 

How I balance being a writer and a mom? 

Who is your favorite author and why?
My favorite author is Francine Rivers. I LOVE her novels. Also, I know her as a person and I know these novels don't come easy. I've been with her as she's spent days pouring over Scripture to get her mind focused on the characters in her novel--as they relate to Biblical people. She's as amazing in person as her books are!
