Coming soon from the pen, please welcome historical author Ramona K. Cecil!

What made you interested in writing Christian Historical Fiction? Do you write any other genres? I’ve always had a passion for history, especially Indiana history as I’m a life-long Hoosier. I have written a couple contemporary novellas and a contemporary short story which remain unpublished. Are there any other Christian Historical Fiction authors that you think your readers would enjoy? Absolutely! Some of my favorite authors of Christian historical fiction are Laurie Alice Eakes, Louise M. Gouge, MaryLu Tyndall, Kim Vogel Sawyer, and Lauraine Snelling. I urge readers of historical fiction to check out the works by these authors. They are WONDERFUL! Are there bits and pieces that were cut in editing that you might ever share with your readers? I can’t think of anything that was cut in editing that would be worth sharing. But I would like to share some interesting tidbits about my coming release—A Bride’s Sweet. . .
