Our recent interview with Debra.

KAT:  How did you get into writing?

DEBRA:  I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was a preteen. As an adult I tried to do a correspondence about writing for children, but life got in the way. It wasn’t until I was 45 years old that I began to pursue a career in writing by applying for and gaining a junior copywriter position with Focus on the Family.

KAT:  What do you see as the greatest take away from your workshop and why?

DEBRA:  Realizing the great flexibility of Scrivener and how you can mold it into the best platform for all your writing projects.

KAT:  Who will get the most out of your workshop?

DEBRA:  Beginning to intermediate users of Scrivener.

KAT:  If you could share only one piece of information with a writer, what would it be?

DEBRA:  Write, write, write, because that is how you’ll discover your voice.

KAT:  What are you working on now?

DEBRA:  I’m working on a novella about an unassuming little country church, the people who find refuge there during a blizzard, and the miracle of faith that God provides for the weary travelers.
