Hello from Sarah Sundin, who has a sudden longing for tea and crumpets. Why? Today’s guest, Marion Stroud, hails from my favourite country, England. Yes, I added the U for Marion’s sake. Marion is the prolific and bestselling author of 23 books, translated into many languages. This mother of five and grandmother of thirteen also serves as a British magistrate. So do not speed down her street.
Marion, how did you get into writing? How many books do you have published?
A bookworm since babyhood, I always wanted to write. When I “retired” from my profession as a physical therapist to have our first baby, I thought I could combine two ambitions – motherhood and becoming a writer! I have published 23 books, the most recent title being Dear God, It’s Me and It’s Urgent. My 24th book, It’s Just You and Me, Lord, will be released in November 2012.
How did you get your first book contract?
