What is one book everyone should read? 
The Bible. It was written over 1,500 years by 40 different authors yet has one coherent message with Jesus at the center of it. It concerns our eternal destiny. No matter what you think of Christians, it’s worth reading. It could change your life.

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? 
Foods you normally wouldn’t eat for breakfast…like Taquitos.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
I have two partial manuscripts that I’m working on. One is set during WWII and the other is set during the Civil War. The one set during the Civil War is about a Southern young lady who appears normal but is actually a spy. This novel is my longest work-in-progress. I started with the basic idea above when I was only around 14 years old. It has since seen a major overhaul but is still not finished. I’m currently trying to find an agent for my finished middle grade novel that is set during the Klondike Gold Rush. I just can’t get away from historical fiction, it seems!

What do you do in your free time? 
If it’s just to relax, I enjoy watching TV shows and movies, listening to music, reading, and playing Mario Kart Wii with my dad and two younger brothers. I also enjoy writing and anything having to do with filmmaking.

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be? 
Perhaps this: Radically Determined to NOT Waste Her Life

Favorite music? 
I love music by Christian artists, especially Dave & Jess Ray, Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp, Steve Camp, and Fernando Ortega.

Favorite smell? 
You know that smell when you open the windows on a summer night and breathe in the cool night air? That is my favorite. I even wrote a poem about it…and it was published :)!

Write a Haiku about your book. 
This is a cool creative challenge. Here’s my Haiku:
Dark, cold walls surround
Delirious with fever
Will Johanna live?

In your wildest dreams, which author would you love to co-author a book with? 
Nancy Rue. Her Christian Heritage Series is, in my opinion, the most epic series ever. She’s my favorite author and if I was ever given the opportunity to co-author a book with her, I might go into a state of shock :).

Spontaneity or Planning Ahead? 
I am a total planner. I make To-Do lists for each month. That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate occasional spontaneity in small things but I can’t imagine not planning ahead. I think it would drive me crazy.

Shoes or Sandals? 
Shoes. I’m a practical person when it comes to clothes/footwear. I usually wear sneakers.

Favorite quote from a movie? 
This one immediately comes to mind even though I’ve never actually seen the movie. “Every man dies, not every man really lives.” (Braveheart)

Deadly Delirium

Standing up for what’s right can mean risking everything.

Though Johanna and her older brother, Karl, lost their parents to Nazi rule in Germany, they have not stopped standing up for their beliefs. Now Communism is in full force in East Germany and they have been imprisoned along with their friend, Franz, for their resistance efforts. Johanna falls ill and becomes delirious with fever. Is there anything that can be done or will Karl and Franz be forced to watch her slowly die? As her life literally flashes before her eyes, will Johanna have the strength-and desire-to survive?
