This past week I had the privilege of communicating back and forth with a Jillian and Teddy fan. As she waited by her husband's bedside after he'd had surgery, she told me it was such a comfort, sitting on those hard cold chairs, to have her Kindle in hand reading the series. She's shared that she's read the books many times, and each time she hungers for another story. At present, I only plan to write a total of eight since my poor old body may not be able to take much more work on the computer. We'll see.
I was struck by the effect fictitious characters can have on readers. For instance, when I choose a book, I look for inspirational characters, whether I find myself rooting for them to conquer evil or fighting their way toward justice. With Jillian and Teddy, I want readers to find a good supportive friend and a virtual (trouble-free) pet. This fan and others tell me that to them, the characters I've created are real. Regardless of whether or not fans like the characters, one of the main objectives of my writing is to share the life of a Christian. I hope my books inspire you.
See you in my books!
