What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Comfort in the Wings: A Novel Inspired by Love That Will Not Die?

The inspiration for this story is my own experience with having several members of my family, including two of my children, die within a short period of time. While in the throes of grief, I found solace in places I did not expect, such as a bird feather on my deck, or a butterfly that lingered around me for many minutes. These felt like signs and communication from my loved ones. As I spoke with more people, especially mothers of child loss, I realized that talking about these signs, or using psychic mediums to speak with loved ones brought great comfort in the midst of sadness. I wanted to share these ideas with others who have endured tragic losses.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Comfort in the Wings: A Novel Inspired by Love That Will Not Die, what would they be?

Larissa Whitcomb “Three Little Birds” by Bob Marley or “Not Done Yet” by Soja Renee “Lean On Me”

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

My favorite genre to read is Historical Fiction or Fiction that takes the reader to a new place in the world. To write – my favorite is yet to be determined!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

The books in my TBR pile change all the time, but a few waiting to be read are: The Keeper of Lost Things; The Storyteller of Casablanca; What the Wind Knows

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I can’t share my very favorite because it would be a spoiler! So, the one I will share is when the protagonist, Larissa, is stuck in an airport late at night with delay after delay, a cleaning woman sits down next to her and they begin to talk. The woman’s quiet wisdom and insight provides Larissa with comfort from a stranger who expects nothing in return. I think their exchange brings a unique beauty to a scenario that most travelers will appreciate.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Nothing quirky – I do enjoy writing when I am near a window. Staring into the sky seems to clear my mind and allow me to sort through swirling thoughts.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

We are only given today and never promised tomorrow – so make sure to tell the people who are special in life that you love them.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I would like for readers to embrace the quiet little joys that come along in life. Joy can come in the midst of sadness or in being grateful for unexpected reminders of those we love. Grief for our lost loved ones does not go away, but we can still find moments of gratitude that enrich our lives.
