Featured Interview With Gracie Lynne
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was raised on a farm in Nebraska. The freedom that I had as a little girl sparked my creativity. I had a playhouse out in our garage, a make believe restaurant in the basement of our farmhouse, a Sunday School for my dolls in the living room. I was rarely bored. I was the youngest of four children and no one wanted to play with me so I played by myself and was very imaginative.
I live in Texas now and I have four cats and one Maltese dog.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I became fascinated with books when I was a teenager. I started writing when my children were born. I was so amazed with them that I started detailing their antics in Christmas letters. Many times I would write from their point of view, even if they could not talk yet. Then when I got divorced, I wrote plays for a Christian Single’s Ministry. Soon I started on my first novel. I worked on that novel for ten years, while being a nurse and a single mother of three fantastic children. When I finished it I had a revelation that it was too dark. So I started all over again and for the next eight years I labored intensively to produce my first published novel, The Shattered Vase.
