Author Interview of Jodie Wolfe

Today, we meet a new author and discover a new book. She's a fellow contributor of mine to Putting on the New blog and a writer of both devotions and Christian fiction. Welcome Jodie Wolfe to Writing with God's Hope blog:

 

Where did you get the idea for your book?

I started by asking a 'what if' question. What if twin sisters made a promise to always stay together? What would it take for one of them to change their mind? That became the kernel of my idea for Hearts Tightly Knit.

 

How did you find your publisher?

This novella was Indie published, but I have an agent who is trying to find a home for several of my stories. J

 

Are you working on any other projects that you can tell us about?

 I'm about ready to start working on the second book in the Twins & Needles Series - Love in the Seams. It will be out in November and will tell the tale of the twin who didn't marry.

 

What kind of books do you enjoy reading?

My favorite books to read are Christian historical romance with a thread of humor. I love to laugh, so I try to add humor into my stories as well.

 

What has your writing journey been like so far?

 Now that's a hard question to answer. I started writing my first novel at age 13. In my high school years and early twenties I worked at writing and trying to get published. Then my boys came along and I spent the next 20+ years raising and teaching them all the way through high school. In 2009 God called me back to writing fiction. I acquired Linda S. Glaz as my agent three years ago. She pitches my stories on a regular basis. I also am a columnist for Home School Enrichment magazine and have been published with Christian Devotions.

 

Where is your favorite place to vacation?

 For me, it's a toss-up between Disney World and Alaska. J

 

Tell me a fun fact about yourself.

I have two granddaughters and another one on the way.

 

If you could be a song, what would it be?

 "Live Like That" by Sidewalk Prophets. 

 

Give me you contact info:







Blogs I contribute to: Stitches Thru Time, Putting on the New and of course, Quid Pro Quills.

 

Tell us about your new book.
 
Orphaned at age ten, Ellie Stafford and her twin sister Mae made a vow—to stick together and never marry. Now in their mid twenties, they are bucking convention in Calder Springs, Texas, as women with respectable occupations who can take care of themselves. Ellie works at the Good Fixin's Diner and spends her evenings knitting garments for The Children's Aid Society. When a handsome local rancher shows up searching for a cook, she's hardly tempted, despite his good looks.

 
Luke Rogers owns a spread just outside of Calder Springs. It was running as smooth as cattle going through a chute until his cook up and marries and high-tails it back east. With no cook and a bunkhouse full of ranch hands ready to revolt, he persuades Ellie to temporarily fill in until he can hire someone else. He should have known better than to get tangled up with another woman.

Jodie Wolfe got bitten by the writing bug as a young girl after reading and watching Little House on the Prairie.
She loves writing stories about feisty heroines and strong, godly heroes. The power of story to influence lives and change hearts is what motivates her to weave tales that tell of the Savior’s faithfulness and forgiveness. Her books provide history, hope, laughter and happily-ever-after.
When not writing she enjoys spending time with her husband, reading, walking and being a Grammie.




Thanks for visiting with us, Jodie.  I loved getting acquainted. What a delightful interview. Any of you have a question for her? I have one more. Jodie, is this your debut novel, or do you have other books?
