 It's important that when Christian teens choose a boyfriend or girlfriend, they choose someone who shares their Christian faith.

Why did you choose to write this book?
I thought it would be fun to explore how a couple could fall in love on-line. When my heroine's high school begins a counseling hotline, she's chosen to work it anonymously. She finds herself giving advice to a guy she's had a crush on forever. Once she knows all the hero's secret, will love blossom or fail? When he divulges the problems he's having with his girlfriend, she's tempted to give him advice that will break them up. Will she do the right thing?

What did you learn while writing this book?
I really love writing for the young adult market. Bouncing back to YA af…

It’s my pleasure to have Anne Patrick on my blog this week. She'll give away EITHER a PDF, Kindle or Nook copy of Out of the Darkness. To enter to win leave a comment and an e-mail address. Welcome, Anne. First, tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a Christian Suspense author with over a dozen books published.  When I'm not writing, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.  I also love to travel and have been richly blessed by being able to travel out of the country on several short-term mission trips.

LOL. Tell us about your latest book.Out of theDarkness is about a former FBI profi…

Looking Out the Window: Meet Emilie Hendryx--Photographer, National Novel Writing Month Winner and Church Office Manager

Welcome, Emily. Thanks for coming by to chat with us today about your photography and your writing projects. First, tell us a little about yourself.
 I’m a full-time office manager at my church, a photography business owner, and an author all rolled up in one. I grew up in a small town in Northern California and moved to Southern California to go to college and then ended up staying. I love coffee and am so looking forward to Fall and Winter, they are my favorite seasons!

Lots of people who write love to read. Were you an avid reader as a child? What did you read?
 My mother has always been a huge reader in our family and that trait was definitely passed down to me. Some of my favorite books growing up were the Enid Blyton Adventure Series, The Boxcar Children, and Nancy Drew mysteries. I loved anything to do with mystery and adventure.
Why do you write?

 I’m an only child and grew up in a small town. I think that created in me a deep love for a good story as well as a large imaginatio…
