Stephanie McCall

downloadToday we welcome Stephanie McCall, novelist and freelance writer, to 3 Questions Wednesday.

(1) What is your favorite book? [Bible excluded]

Stephanie: It’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite, but if I had to choose one, it would be Julie Lessman’s A Passion Most Pure. I identify strongly with main character Faith O’Connor. I love reading about her big Irish family. It’s also a pretty long book, so should I ever be stranded on a desert island with only one, it would definitely be in the top five.

(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you want to be?

Stephanie: I would want to be Elinor Dashwood. She has an inner strength I try to emulate as best I can. In fact, sometimes, in addition to, what would Jesus do, I find myself asking, What would Elinor do?

(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Stephanie: I’d choose Ireland; my mother and I have both always wanted to go there.

Thank you, Stephanie, for joining us on 3 Questions Wednesday! Please leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of Fiery Secrets.

Book Blurb: Down Candy Cane Lane
Emily Coleman longs for true love, like the kind she sees in the fairytales she adores. Yet, she’s also made some sinful choices, and so doubts any good man–for that matter, any decent person–could love her. Meeting Josh Anderson might change that. In fact, the more Emily is around Josh, the more she wants her perspective to change, but obstacles abound. For one thing, he is the embodiment of everything Emily fears, as well as the exact kind of man who would shun her for her past.
Josh Anderson swore off women after committing his life to Jesus and promising to be more careful with relationships. He certainly doesn’t need Emily Coleman in his life. She’s prissy, uptight, and hates dogs, whereas he owns a kennel full of canines he loves. Despite all that, his attraction to Emily only increases the more they’re together. When financial pitfalls and a shady veterinarian threaten to derail both their careers, Josh must decide how far he’ll go to prove his love for Emily. Emily, meanwhile, must find the warrior for Christ and love within herself. Can they trust God to set their lives on the right path, even if it isn’t Candy Cane Lane?
