Christian Author Peggy Trotter
Peggy tells me it was her love of reading that first inspired her to write. In her early teens, she began to write horse novels and then evolved into romance.
Let’s discover a little more about Peggy Trotter, the writer.
Question: Do you consider writing Christian fiction a ministry?
Most certainly! I can remember reading secular romance novels that wandered into inappropriate behavior and not-Biblical choices and feeling quite frustrated with that. I hope my books show other Christians and non-Christians that living this life dedicated to God is no easy row to hoe! It’s real, it's raw, it's tough! But I also want people to be inspired when the characters rise above the circumstances and give the readers Biblical answers and choices they may have never thought of. And even if what I've described doesn't happen to the reader, at least they have the enjoyment of a clean, Christian book choice.
Question: What’s your favorite hobby, besides writing?
I’ll confess. I’m a hobbiholic. Lol. I love painting, scrapbooking, beading, playing the piano, sewing, knitting, crocheting, crafting, and lot more. I love so many different hobbies! But the one that seems to override the rest is DIY. I love turning something old and tired into something new and sleek. I’m working right now on my old dresser. It’s 26 years old. It started out dark maple and soon will be white with a dark-stained top and new drawer pulls! I can’t wait!
Question: Tell 5 quick things that have nothing to do with writing:
1. I love cherry Mountain Dew. Can’t get too much of that!
2. Going to the beach is the best thing ever!
3. I teach 2nd Grade at a small Christian School.
4. I have an annoying habit of over-scheduling myself!
5. I’ve been married for 31 years—To the same wonderful man!!!
Question: Tell us about Reviving Jules.
It’s a contemporary Romance set in southern Indiana. Here’s the back blurb:
Jules Summers, a proverbial Jonah, runs from family, career and neighborhood. Where’s she going? To find a place of healing for wounds so deep, she shuts the door against the very One who restores. But God never abandons and a kindergarten angel arrives, towing her father, Rhett Carsen.
Rhett Carsen vows never to marry again. He redoubles his efforts to raise his motherless daughter alone, but runs into trouble when work sends him traveling. His daughter instantly bonds with the newcomer in the neighborhood, Jules Summers, who in turn, assists him in caring for his daughter. She seems like the answer to his prayers, an instant live-in nanny. Yet, why does she captivate his every thought?
They work together as a team to care for Rhett’s child. But is practicality the only thing God has planned for these two? Or could there be a whole lot more?
Peggy tells of a special Christmas.
