Interview of Cherie Burbach

Today, I have the opportunity along with you to get acquainted with author, Cherie Burbach and ask her several questions. So, here we go . . .

1. When was the last time you wanted to give up on writing? What saved you from doing that?


Yesterday? Today? LOL! I think there are moments of frustration at times with the business ends of things because it’s after all, work… but the actual writing process itself is very soothing for me. I feel like it’s a lifeline that keeps me centered and sane.


2. Where did you get the idea of your new book?


Outer space! I was so into watching Cosmos and seeing all God had created, so when I started choosing poems for My Soul Is From a Difference Place, it seemed like a natural fit to incorporate the look and feel of the universe.  


3. I like that.  Now, tell me if you could be a song, what would it be?


Maybe Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” I’d like to be able to do that a bit more. 


4. In what place do you do most of your writing?


 In my home office.


5. What habit do you struggle with making or getting rid of?


I’m always trying to get over the need to please and working too much. I’ve made strides but it’s something I can easily fall back into. 


6. Oh, I'm with you there. What book are you reading right now?


I just finished Vanishing Grace the other night and now I’m digging into the Gospel of John again. I go through cycles with the gospel writers and right now I’m obsessed with the words of John.  


7. Ah, yes, John speaks of God's love. Anything else you want to tell us?


Feel free to connect with me on my Etsy page or website. Thanks so much for having me.
