Today we welcome author Molly Noble Bull.
Molly has had three inspirational historical
novels published. The most recent is Sanctuary,
the first in her Faith of Our Fathers series,
which recounts the perilous and exciting times
of the Huguenots.
Tell us a bit about yourself, your writing, and your publishing journey.
I was born in Kingsville, Texas. I am married and the mother of three grown sons. My husband and I moved away for many years, but now we live in Kingsville again.
My first two inspirational romance novels were published in 1986. Then the market dried up, and I didn’t publish again until Love Inspired bought Brides and Blessings in 1999. The Winter Pearl came out in 2004 from Steeple Hill in trade paperback and came out in mass market paperback in 2007. Sanctuary, another long historical, was published on September 15 in trade paperback.
What is the greatest historical novel you’ve ever read and why?
I would have to say Little Women because I read it at a young age, and the book made me cry. I’d never cried from reading a book previously. Since then, many books have put tears in my eyes and many have also made me laugh.
Did you have any experiences that prompted your love of fiction and historical fiction in particular?
As a child, I played with dolls – often acting out entire scenes from books I had read. My childhood friend, Ruth, and I sometimes pretended we were in a covered wagon going west.
All these activities increased my interest in historical fiction and gave me the desire to write it. Too bad children today don’t use their imaginations more.
Please join us tomorrow as we continue our interview
with Molly Bull. For a chance to win a copy of her newly
published novel, Sanctuary, please leave a comment.
