Welcome, Lisa J. Flickinger! Tell us, What is your favourite genre to write?
I love writing and researching historical fiction. My house looks like a late eighteen hundreds farmhouse, complete with a ladder and a broom collection, although I find any bygone era fascinating.
What does your office look like?
Along one wall sits an antique lawyer’s bookcase from my grandmother’s home filled with resource materials for writing. A stunning print of the Tonquin Valley done by photographer Paul Smith hangs above the desk and provides the dreamscape for my imagination.
What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Read, of course! Otherwise, I wrangle anybody I can to have a latte and chat at the local coffee shop.
When did you decide to become a writer?
I decided at birth to become a writer, but for several years lack of comprehension hampered my career. It wasn’t until my kids left home I seriously pursued writing (and finishing) projects.

How do you connect with God best?
I love listening to the Lord speak into my heart during worship.
Which Christian author has influenced you the most?
I have been a fan of Allison Pittman’s work for years. Even more amazing, The Christian Communicator assigned my novel All That Glitters to her for editing. Her encouragement and insight helped me to develop as a writer and to take the leap toward publication.
Are your books only for Christians or would other people also enjoy them?
My books definitely embrace a Christian worldview; however, the settings and characters are memorable enough for anyone who enjoys a good read.
What do you consider the best piece of advice you can give to novice authors?
As you journey toward publication, be open to learning from authors who have gone before you.
