Welcome to another edition of 3 Questions Wednesday, and welcome Janet W. Ferguson. Janet is a multi-published author that likes to write about humorous inspirational fiction. Lets get started!
Who is your favorite author?
Janet: I totally fangirl over Francine Rivers! I met her at a writing conference and asked to get my picture made with her! Her writing taught me the power of story. Her latest novel The Masterpiece was wonderful!
Oh how neat that you got to meet with one of your favorites! Now here’s a fun question—
If you could write about anyone or anything fiction/nonfiction who or what would you write about?
Janet: Oh my! That’s hard!
I wish I could write biblical fiction that pulled people into Bible study. I loved Lynn Austin’s biblical fiction based on the kings in the Bible. While reading the series, I wanted to go back and read about them in the Old Testament.
I would also love to write a fictional story based on my parents’ lives. They have a sweet story of meeting on a train during World War II.
A love story…. on a train… during a war…❤️❤️❤️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?
Janet: In The Art of Rivers, the heroine, Rivers, is an art therapist. It would be neat to hang out with her on a nice day at the beach with a canvas. We could talk, paint, and she could teach me a few things about art. Maybe give me some therapy!
I would love to hang out with her for some beach therapy too! Thanks, Janet, for visiting us on 3 Questions Wednesday, and allowing our readers to know you better.
Readers, Janet will be giving away an eBook copy of her award winning novel Magnolia Storms to one reader who leaves a comment .
A Coastal Hearts Novel
Rivers Sullivan bears both visible and invisible scars—those on her shoulder from a bullet wound and those on her heart from the loss of her fiancé during the same brutal attack. Not even her background as an art therapist can help her regain her faith in humanity. Still, she scrapes together the courage to travel to St. Simons Island to see the beach cottage and art gallery she’s inherited from her fiancé. When she stumbles upon recovering addicts running her gallery, she’s forced to reckon with her own healing.
After the tragic drowning of his cousin, James Cooper Knight spends his days trying to make up for his past mistakes. He not only dedicates his life to addiction counseling, but guilt drives him to the water, searching for others who’ve been caught unaware of the quickly rising tides of St. Simons. When he rescues a peculiar blond woman and her sketch pad from a sandbar, then delivers this same woman to his deceased grandmother’s properties, he knows things are about to get even more complicated.
Tragic circumstances draw Cooper and Rivers closer, but they fight their growing feelings. Though Cooper’s been sober for years, Rivers can’t imagine trusting her heart to someone in recovery, and he knows a relationship with her will only rip his family further apart. Distrust and guilt are only the first roadblocks they must overcome if they take a chance on love.
Janet W. Ferguson grew up in Mississippi and received a degree in Banking and Finance from the University of Mississippi. She has served as a children’s minister and a church youth volunteer. An avid reader, she worked as a librarian at a large public high school. She writes humorous inspirational fiction for people with real lives and real problems.

I love to hear from readers.
