I’m so excited to have Angela Watts with me today to celebrate her book release, The Thief, The Damsel and The Dragon.
When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?
I’ve been writing ever since I could form words, but I didn’t seriously consider publishing anything until I was about 15 years old. Before this, I had only completed one novella, so I really didn’t ever consider publishing or being an actual author a thing. 😉
2. What is The Thief, The Damsel, and the Dragon about?
This Christian, contemporary novella is about a young man and young woman who live in a small town in Tennessee. They seemingly have polar opposite lives… but they have one thing in common, and that is their need for God.
3. What inspired The Thief, The Damsel, and the Dragon?
I literally woke up one morning, got my French vanilla coffee, sat down… And had the sudden urge to just write something totally new. I talked to God and tossed ideas around for something short and sweet. God gave me the idea for TT,TD,TD and I ran with it!
4. Who is the book for and what do you want readers to gain from your book?
For me, this book was a glass of sweet iced tea on a humid summer day — a wonderful change! I don’t usually write stories without extreme pain, action, or grimness… but this novella was a step out of my comfort zone. I learned things about forgiveness, true joy, and about God as I wrote it. I pray my readers gain whatever God wills them to gain — whether it’s a laugh or God uses the story to show them the light about His Word or the Gospel.
5. Have you written any other books and where can we get them?
I have written two novels, another novella, and short stories, but none are available to purchase. Yet! My first novel, Seek, will be published sometime toward the end of 2018.
6. Where can we connect with you?
You can find me and chat on my blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Goodreads, or Pinterest.
7. What tips you have for young aspiring writers?
Pray and read God’s Word. Again. And again. Pray for His guidance and wisdom. Search for stories from the Bible — God is the ultimate storyteller, after all
Thanks so much Angela!
