Hi Nancy, lots of writers loved to read as youngsters. How about you? Were you an avid reader as a child? If so, what did you read?

I read all the time. During the day, at night when I was supposed to be sleeping. A flashlight under the covers works great! My tastes were varied. Nancy Drew, Dickens, Little House on the Prairie. I’d read almost anything.

Let's talk about your writing. Why do you write?

Because I’m called to, and because I love it. It’s just part of who I am.

What themes do you write about?

I love to write about the battle of good against evil. This is the heart of mystery and suspense. Also, in each plot I include at least two battles. The main battle from outside forces and the inner battle that comes from personal trials and conflict.

What is your writing schedule and where do you write?

I have a room design…

Destitute and downhearted, Naomi resigns herself to a life of bitter poverty, but Ruth holds out hope for a better future. And Boaz may be the one God has chosen to provide it.

Gail, I am so honored to be here! Thank you for having me!
It's my pleasure to have you. Let's talk about your new book. What inspired you to write this particular story?

Time Search is the third book in The Time Counselor Chronicles, and one of the things that inspired me to write it was a horrible case of cabin fever. I was extremely ill at the time, and I wrote it in the middle of a seven-year stretch of quarantine. The four walls of my house were closing in on me, and my only way of escape was through my imagination. I longed to travel, and since I couldn’t, I became an armchair traveler. I’d always wanted to visit Europe, so I read travel books and watched online videos of tourist spot…
