The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

I love really thought-provoking short stories. Bonus points if there’s a creep factor. Think Ray Bradbury or “The Lottery. Teddi Deppner’s The Author Collector doesn’t disappoint.

Perspective

I’m reading a book right now–well, actually I’m in the middle of about four books, but this particular one is called 30,000 Teachers, by Faith Fitt. It’s a true story about a woman who, after a difficult break-up, moves to China as a teacher and to share the love of God. The story is fun […]

Collaborating

Have any of you ever collaborated on a novel? How did that work out? I think of fantastic writing pairs, like Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, or Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee, and I wonder, how is it possible to actually agree on something to make a final product? I’ve had more than one person […]

For Book Lovers Everywhere

Last week, we talked about what presents WE wanted for Christmas. This week, let’s talk about what we might give others. In an effort to support my fellow writers, I almost always give people books for Christmas. Yes, sometimes, even if they don’t normally read. I’m just mean that way. Do you tend to give […]
