I am so pleased to welcome author Carol Round to Interviews & Reviews today. After retiring from a 30-year teaching career, Carol followed her dream. Her stories and essays have appeared in local, national and state publications and anthologies.
Without God’s continual nudging, however, she would not have begun her writing and speaking ministry. With His guidance, she has written one 500-word column each week since November 2005. Her column, A Matter of Faith, runs in 14 Oklahoma newspapers, two online Christian publications and went international five years ago.
She is the author of nine books, all available at Amazon, including three collections of her columns, a book and companion workbook on prayer journaling, a three-book series for children to teach them the importance of giving, saving and spending their money.

Today, I am pleased to welcome author Rachel Fordham to Interviews & Reviews. Rachel started writing when her children began begging her for stories at night.

She lives with her husband and children on an island in the state of Washington. She is going to talk to us today about her debut novel The Hope of Azure Springs.

Today, we have a young teen author stopping by Interviews & Reviews. Nicki Chapelway is fifteen years old and self-published a fantasy novel called A Week of Werewolves, Faeries, and Fancy Dresses one year after she finished writing it. She enjoys reading, writing, swimming when she can, and fan-girling (in other words: obsessing over other peoples' stories almost as much as her own). She also enjoys watching TV. Her favorite movies and TV shows include: Doctor Who, Avengers, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Nicki currently resides in Ohio with her family of eight and two dogs, Rylie and Zoey. She is now working on the next books in the My Time in Amar series- when she's not distracted by other stories (both hers and others).
Nicki, welcome to Interviews & Reviews!
