Are you ready to continue the revealing of the special guests at the upcoming Twelve Writers of Christmas Facebook Party on December 12th!?
I hope so because I am so excited to be introducing the ninth special guest, Sarah Addison-Fox! She is so fun to talk to and plus her accent is amazing! (She calls it “kiwi accent,” and did you know that there is such thing as a kiwi bird? I had no idea until she told me.)
Plus, did I mention that her debut is going on tour next month and I that her novel is going to blow us all away? 😉
Sarah Addison-Fox is a New Zealand-born home-schooling mother of two who loves action-packed, clean, fantasy with strong heroines. She has an astonishing amount of nail polish, has all her creative writing credentials shoved in a drawer somewhere, and has a husband who, after 27 years, can still make her blush. When she’s not working on both her Christian YA fantasy series’, Allegiance, or Renegades, she can be found fangirling on Goodreads or sending GIFs on Twitter.
– For those who don’t know you, can you share three words to describe yourself?
Impulsive, impatient, obsessive
– I’m pretty sure I have an impatient streak myself. 😉 What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Living out my fantasies of being tough and brave through my characters. That and other people actually liking what I’ve written!
– I love that! How has your spiritual walk influenced your writing?
I always wanted to write, but I never had a real purpose or enough motivation to ever see any writing projects through. A diagnosis of MS turned my life upside down and forced me to re-examine what was important. I truly believe that without almost losing the ability to write, I wouldn’t have appreciated the ability to do so. I know without a doubt that over the years, God has been preparing me for this. Without all the pain, the heartbreak and the times where I ran from Him, I wouldn’t be in a position to write about finding light and truth in the darkness.
Hearing Michael Jnr speak on “Knowing your why,” was a life changing moment for me. All of the things I’d done, the horrible mistakes I’d made, the books I’d read, the people I’d met, was all for a reason. Nothing was wasted. God had a purpose and a plan for me all along. Knowing that, and walking in obedience even when everyone thought I was nuts, gave me the focus and clarity I always lacked.
– That’s very powerful, Sarah! I appreciate you sharing! <3 If you had the ability to jump into any story and live there for a week, what book would you choose?
Wow! Um, that’s really tough. There are so many books that I love the characters and the world building, but I don’t think I’d survive a week in any of them! If I could be in a sort of bubble where I floated around and could just watch the action, I think I’d go for Serena Chase’s Eyes of E’veria world. That would be cool watching Caz & Eri dispensing justice and clever piratey insults. Not to mention the giant seahorses and twinkly ennikas, those would be pretty awesome to see!
Thanks so much LG, that was heaps of fun!
– I have always wanted to read that series! I have heard such cool things about it. 🙂 Thanks so much for chatting with me Sarah! I am thrilled to have you as one of the special guests at the party and can’t wait to chat again real soon.
*Sarah will be chatting from 9:40-9:55 PM EST. Wonder what she is going to talk about?*
You’ll have to stop by the party on December 12th to find out! 😉 (But don’t worry! It’s going to be a lot of fun!)
Before you go, be sure to check Sarah’s book online!
