About the Book

Picture

From the back cover: “No one crosses Jerry Windham and gets away with it. Not even a woman as shrewd as Patricia Campbell. After uncovering this man’s dreadful secrets about women reported missing, she ran. Even two years later, she can’t get rid of the thought that he’ll never stop looking for her. He’d do anything to see her dead, or worse. Unaware of the FBI’s search for her to learn what information she might hold, she continues to hide. A new look, a new city and job, fearful thoughts suppressed, Patricia moves on. Three new men enter this beautiful woman’s life. A persistent computer technician, a charming philanthropist, and a handsome, wealthy businessman who wants to marry her. But her fears resurface, and she wonders if she can trust any of them. Having rejected God in her college days, Patricia believes He would not listen to her now. All she wants is to change and have a normal life. Will she put her trust in God? Can she survive long enough to find peace…and perfect love?”

Interview

Thank you for joining us today, Sharon! I’m excited to talk to you about His Perfect Love. Do you have any personal experiences that helped you in writing this novel or did you have to do character research?
Not any character research. Since my characters were in a modern day story, they were basically ordinary people. The locales described in the story were from my personal experiences growing up or living in those areas. The incidents were purely fiction.
 
How was your faith and Patricia’s lack of faith vital to this story?
My faith has been a long time building. The experience of growing in that faith was used in creating the personality of Patricia. Through the years as a child of God, I’ve heard many testimonies from other Christians which also helped to create Patricia’s background and her slow process of getting to the point where she realized she needed God.
 
Did you plot Patricia’s story from beginning to end or let the story go where it wanted?
A “pantser” is what I believe I’m called. An idea, which usually just pops into my head one day, gets written down. From there I think about where that idea might lead and from where it came, before that point in time. Then I’m off and writing.
 
Pantsers unite!
Now for some fun questions!

If you could live in any era, which one would you pick and why?
The Victorian era is the one I would choose. The clothing they wore and the gentler times they lived in is what I love. Actually, everything about that era appeals to me.
 
What’s one fun thing you want to do in 2017?
Hmmm…Visit the Texas Ranger Museum in Waco, Texas. And, I’d like to take a scenic trip along the U.S. coastline by rail.
 
If you had to get rid of all of your books but 2, which two would you keep?
They would be my Bible and The Complete Works of Shakespeare.

I have those too!

Thanks again for stopping by and chatting with me. Care to let the readers know what’s next in your writing journey?
Thank you, Toni. Next on my agenda is to rewrite my first three novels, A Very Present Help, Paths of Righteousness, and There Abideth Hope, all written before I knew anything about writing. I plan to change them to deep point of view and reorder the events. After I finish with that project, I’ll be working on my fifth novel, for which I’ve already been making notes.

About the Author

Picture

Sharon K. Connell was born in Wisconsin, but only lived there for five days. She lived in Illinois through college, and a career in the clerical world, until moving to Pensacola, Florida to attend Bible School.  

At the age of twelve, I asked the Lord to be my Savior and I have never been sorry that I did. He has seen me through many trials, most of which I brought on myself. But never once did I feel He deserted me or did not love me. He has always been there for me. 

Florida was my home, for just under twenty years after graduating from the Pensacola Bible Institute. At the end of 2012, I retired to Houston, Texas, and am now enjoying every minute of my writing career.  

At least one to six hours each day, I spend writing stories about people who discover, as I have, that God will only allow those things into your life that will help you grow and/or increase your faith. These are the truths, among others, that I bring out in my novels. 

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 

The stories that I write are to honor my Lord and to be a blessing to others. My genre is Christian/Romance/Suspense, with a little mystery added in.
