The Coffee Corner Welcomes
Linda Weaver Clarke
Welcome back to Inspirational Moments. I know it's been a while but I have great news! I'm well on my way to 100%! It's been quite the road to recovery but God is good. All the time. To celebrate, the Coffee Corner brings you Linda Weaver Clarke this week. She's also giving away some e-books! Check out the details after the interview, but for now, let's get to the interview, shall we?
Renee: Hi there, Linda, welcome to the Corner. I'm excited to have you here. What can you tell us about your Rebel series? What makes it special or unique?
Renee: This series sounds amazing. I'm a patriot as well. I bet it will touch every patriot's heart who reads it. I wonder, how do you decide upon a subject and find time to do your research?
Linda: After I've decided upon a subject, I have so much fun searching for a certain subject. For example, I learned that the waltz was introduced in the 1700's but many people would not accept it because they felt it was "riotous and indecent." It wasn't until a Russian ambassador endorsed that it was accepted in certain countries. I also learned that lamplighters were chosen carefully because they also acted as night watchmen and they needed to be trustworthy. In The Fox of Cordovia, they make their getaway in a pirate ship, so I had to research what pirate ships were like and what was inside such a ship so I could describe it adequately. I love research.
Renee: I love it! Well, since we're talking about writing, let's keep going, how long have you been writing and why did you start?
Linda: Since 2005, about 12 years. I have 22 books published. I have always enjoyed writing, but it wasn't until I was putting together my grandparents and ancestors' stories that actually got me started. When I was done, I couldn't stop writing and turned to fiction. I have taught writing classes for over ten years, teaching people how to write their family history or autobiographies.
Renee: Wow, it sounds like you found your calling, no matter what kind of writing it was. God is so good, isn't He? Let's turn back to your series, what the favorite part of your books and why?
Renee: Your stories sound positively amazing. I can't wait to read all of them! I know everyone else can't either. On a personal note, do you have any hobbies or thinks you like to do when you aren't working?
Linda: I love spending time with my children and husband. I love going on road trips with them or just vacationing somewhere fun with my family.
Renee: In closing, is there a special quote or verse which comes to you in times of need or adversity?
Linda: In Rev 3:20, it says: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." In this scripture, I feel as if the Lord is inviting us to talk to him and tell him about our problems. If we just talk with him and explain our difficulties, then he will comfort us and answer our prayers. In another scripture, the Lord says, "For after much tribulation, come the blessings." He just wants us to be patient in our afflictions and to go to him for wisdom and comfort.
Renee: Thank you, Linda, for being on the Coffee Corner. You are an inspiration for young and new writers. May the Lord bless you in your continued endeavors.
