Welcome to another edition of 3 Questions Wednesday, with our returning guest, Jennifer Slattery. Jennifer is a writer and international speaker who’s addressed women’s groups, church groups, Bible studies, and other writers across the nation and authored six contemporary novels. Lets get started!
Who is your favorite author?
Jennifer: Oh, this is such a tough question! What genre? For Bible studies, Priscilla Shirer. That girl is amazing! For nonfiction … Probably Lysa Terkeurst. For fiction … I’m pretty eclectic, but maybe Nicholas Sparks? As far as special author friends, Jen Hallmark is a treasure I hold dear!
Great books by all those authors. And I’m sure “our” Jennifer appreciates your kind words. Now here’s a fun question—
If you could write about anyone or anything fiction/nonfiction who or what would you write about?
Jennifer: I’m not a historical writer, but I’ve always thought it’d be intriguing to get into Timothy’s (the young pastor of the church in ancient Ephesus) head. He lived and served during such a tough time, and yet he stood faithful and immovable.
He would be a wonderful character in a story. And what a challenge to write about his relationship with Paul. Last question—
If you could spend time with a character from your book or another book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?
Jennifer: I’m fairly certain Faith and I would become great friends. She likes coffee, bike riding, art … Though she might get annoyed at my complete lack of talent. Haha! I also get a kick out the old lady that lives in the parish house. She’s feisty, quirky, and hilarious!
If Paige and I got a chance to hang out, I’d want to go hiking and pick her brain regarding the Austin art culture and how she got into stained glass window restoration. If I got to spend time with the little old lady that lives on the church’s property, I’d probably want to bake. I have a feeling she’d create some rather interesting, though perhaps not edible, concoctions.
Baking and cookies sound yummy to me. Thanks, Jennifer, for visiting us on 3 Questions Wednesday, and allowing our readers to know you better.
