Good morning! Today, Janie Winsell is answering our three questions. Janie is the author of A Wife’s Devotion. I can’t wait for you to see the cover.
Good morning, Janie. Can you describe yourself in three words?
That’s hard. Boiling myself down to three words for a writer is like asking us not to use any adjectives in our writing. Okay, maybe not that dramatic, but you get the picture. Okay, here goes . . . Determined, passionate, and caring.
I like your humor, Janie. I also like your three-word description. Great job. Next question . . .
Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?
To quote Dr. Seuss, “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” I have a fascination with Greece. The gorgeous waters and beautiful architecture have captivated my heart and soul. I’ve always wanted to visit Europe to see the different cultures there. I’ve heard that life isn’t quite so rushed across the waters as it is here. I also think that I could get a lot of writing done from my balcony as I watch the serenity of the ocean. I want to write a Romance book set in Greece, but there’s only so much you can do with your computer and imagination. If I could walk the streets and talk to the people, I could really get a feel for this amazing country and do them justice in a story.
I agree. There is nothing like walking the streets and talking to the people to get a feel for the land. Final quesiton . . .
If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?
Seeing that I majored in music for my undergraduate degree, I can think of a hundred different songs from different genres that might capture my past or present, or perhaps my future, but I think there’s only one that really tells my story. “Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave.
I adore “Redeemed.” Reader’s click on the link to listen.
Thank you so much for having me on your blog. I’ve had a great time.
Janie, thank you for sharing your time and yourself with us today on Inspired Prompt. It was a pleasure talking with you.

A Wife’s Devotion
Sergeant Alex Davis wakes up from a coma with another man’s name on his medical chart.
Six years ago, an IED explosion took the lives of his platoon, his leg, and left him a vegetable–– or so the doctors thought. Now fighting to regain his health and what’s left of his life, all Alex can focus on is returning to the wife and daughter he left behind. There’s only one problem.
Real Estate agent Izzy Williams has a new life. She remarried and moved her and her daughter Elizabeth across town. But just as things are settling down, two officers show up at her door uttering one sentence that turns her world upside down.
“Sergeant Alex Davis is alive.”
Will Alex be able to win his family back?
With her whole world on the line, Izzy must decide if her devotion lies with her new husband or her first love.
