Questions that I am often asked:
What inspired you to write BE STILL?
Be Still actually came to me in a dream several years ago. I emember waking up the next morning and grabbing my yellow lined legal pad. I wrote three solid pages. In fact the words attributed to God in Be Still were the exact words that I had heard in the dream. I knew I had to write this book but, as I struggled with the plot, I kept putting manuscript aside. Each time I did though it kept haunting me until I had no other choice but to come back and finish it.
Can you describe a brief synopsis of the plot?
Sure. A popular television news reporter hears report, from all over the world, of people seeing and speaking with angels. As she investigates this amazing story, the chilling evidence shakes her beliefs. Those who have spoken to the angels all repeat the same ominous message from God: "Tell the people to prepare themselves for their time is at hand."
You seem to go into a lot of detail in your book, where did you get the information?
Most of the research was done online, especially the information on the scientists, the observatories and comets. The city layouts were from personal information and maps. The church services and papal information were also from personal information since my background included a Catholic father and a Baptist mother. My father was actually an altar boy and my great grandfather was a Baptist minister. This background led me to believe that there is not just one right church - that the most important thing was a belief in God.
