Featured Author

Interview with Melissa Jagears

Carol Award winning writer, Melissa Jagears, is a homeschooling mom who writes Christian Historical Romance into the wee hours of the night. She’s the author of the Unexpected Brides Series with Bethany House.

From the interview: “I hope the spiritual things my characters struggle with are portrayed realistically and not in a cotton candy way. I hope that in each book some readers’ convictions are challenged and those convictions either change or grow stronger as the story unfolds.

“Of course, I don’t want anyone developing their theology—or learning history for that matter—based ) on novels, but I hope my stories will illuminate spiritual matters in such a way that readers question what they believe and work through it along with the characters. It is always good to re-examine what you know and believe from time to time.”
