Thanks for taking the time to answer yesterday's FITOQ (fly-in-the-ointment question--your love of initials is rubbing off on me! ; D).

You said: " I am happiest when my books not ONLY entertain, but also MEAN something to the reader's life. But as the interview states, I can't achieve the "meaning something" part without the entertainment value. Because readers don't pick up a novel primarily to learn about God. They pick it up to be entertained. So I have to make that my first goal in order to ultimately achieve the second."

That may be the best explanation I've ever heard (read) for WHY a Christian writer should pay attention to craft--should write the best, most entertaining story we are capable of writing. Thanks.

Brandilynn, you are such an inspiration. I only hope than I can come close to the impact that you've made on Christian suspense! Great second part to the interview.

And I think I was so excited about the interview that I forgot to say Happy Blog Birthday yesterday!
