Welcome Lena! What made you decide to become a writer?
I've always been a writer, and God used events in the first week of May 1984 to tell me to become a professional writer. Your readers can read the testimony on my web site www.lenanelsondooley.com on the About Me tab.
Because of my life with the Lord, even when things go wrong, I use that kind of walk in many of my characters. They live out facing difficulties and joys through the filter of their faith. Of course, not all my characters are Christians. Many who aren't at the beginning of a story have become Christians through the events and relationships in the stories. And, of course, some of them never do before the book ends.
What are you working on next?
I will be the screenwriter for a Christian movie that should release by the end of 2014. I'm adapting Pola Musyka's novel Abducted to Kill into a screenplay. I've very excited to be involved in this project.
Wow! That sounds so exiting! Thanks so much for being with us today!
