The Shelf of Danica.
My guest today has written so many books that she has an entire shelf dedicated to her books. Her main series is a Historical romance set in Leadville, CO. There are eight books planned in the series, though only six are out now. She is a buff on the history of Leadville. She has even been to museums where she could lead tours if she had to. In fact, her husband’s family settled in Leadville and still have a family house there.
Danica didn’t set out to write Christian romances because she likes to focus on complex issues and didn’t think she could do that originally with her work. She tried to write contemporary, but she struggled in the beginning. Her agent wouldn’t let her quit, though, and recommended she try writing a Christian Historical romance. She had always loved History and reading historicals, but she didn’t want to combine her work with her love. However, fate had other plans as she decided to write one as a challenge, and it was the first book that sold.
Danica and I delve into some of the issues that Christian fiction authors face. Unfortunately, a lot of Christian books have gotten the bad rap of being either boring or too preachy. For authors of this genre, it’s a tight rope act of balancing interest with appropriate scripture without being too preachy. Danica does this well and has great tips.
Watch this great discussion …
Some of (but not all of) Danica’s books …
A self-professed crazy chicken lady, Danica Favorite loves the adventure of living a creative life. She and her family recently moved in to their dream home in the mountains above Denver, Colorado. Danica loves to explore the depths of human nature and follow people on the journey to happily ever after. Though the journey is often bumpy, those bumps are what refine imperfect characters as they live the life God created them for. Oops, that just spoiled the ending of all of Danica’s stories. Then again, getting there is all the fun.
