Author Interview: Therese M. Travis

Therese TravisToday’s special guest is Therese M. Travis, an author is who is also a wife, mother, grandmother, follower of Christ. She’s been writing stories since the age of eight, and “telling stories” (you know what that means) since long before. She finally figured out how to put those stories onto the page. She loves to talk about Jesus and His love for us, about her family, crafting, writing, and praying. You can connect with Therese at Pinterest and on Facebook.

Therese, thank you for being here today. I loved Annabelle’s story because my favorite heroes and heroines are those that are not absolutely perfect. In Annabelle’s case, her flaws are physical, and she sees herself as flawed and not at all the way God sees her. This flaw prevents her from truly living. Have you ever known anyone who suffers from what they would consider a physical flaw and allowed themselves to be ruled by their own fears of what others see in them?

Welcome, Therese. It’s so good to have you return and talk about your newest romantic suspense novel, Fixing Perfect. 

Thanks, Fay. I love visiting with you.

The first question I have for you is: where in the world did you get the idea for this great suspense story with its unique heroine?

Several years ago, I attended a baseball game with my daughter and her family. My grandsons were volunteer runners for several handicapped players, and I just knew I had to use that concept in a story. From there, a comment I heard (I don’t remember where) about the “tragedy” of being handicapped, and I had my heroine who had a much better attitude. As I wrote Kerry, I realized he was based on a friend of mine. Every time he’d talk, I’d hear a different voice…

Catalina Island is another unique feature of the story. Why did you choose the island? Is there a connection or do you have another reason?

I went to the island for my honeymoon, and have always wanted to go back. Someday….Everything I learned about it as I researched just added another great layer to the story.

Robin is a fiercely independent woman despite her limitations. Do you know someone like Robin or do you write her from your own personal experience?

I’m not handicapped in the same way, but I have three different chronic illnesses that sap my energy. So that aspect of what Robin faces is straight from my own life. Also, from a very young age, I’ve been drawn to people with disabilities as much as to anyone else. I’ve learned to see them as people just like anyone else, rather than someone whose eyes you try not to catch when they walk by—or roll by.

You write suspense very well. The story builds and builds while you’re rooting for Robin and Sam to overcome the frightening events that are taking place in their lives. Have you ever been exposed to a similar situation? If so, do you want to share? If not, please tell us the secret behind your ability to bring the fear to your reader.

Thank you! No, I’ve never been in a similar situation. But I have an active (and somewhat sinister) imagination, and I use it fully! I have to admit that I didn’t enjoy getting into the killer’s head, but once I had, it made the story richer.

What are you working on now?

Several children’s books (middle reader level) and a short story set in Vatican City, that I hope to pitch for the Passport to Romance line. Also, a series of mysteries with a neurotic heroine. She’s very close to my heart. We share a lot of the same OCD tendencies.

FixingPerfect_h11394_300About Fixing Perfect:

In the community of Avalon on Catalina Island, a psychopath is kidnapping children and perfectly posing and painting the bodies of adult victims to resemble disabled artist, Robin Ingram.

Robin struggles with feelings of imperfection, and knowing some madman has a macabre agenda—which includes fixing her—is unsettling. She’s relieved when paramedic Sam Albrecht steps up to help.

Sam believes he knows the identity of the killer, and he wants nothing more than to prove it in order to keep Robin out of danger. Then Sam is arrested as a suspect for the crimes, and Robin’s life is thrown into a fresh whirlwind. She may not know who the real killer is, but she does know Sam is innocent…and she will find the proof to set him free, or she’ll die trying.

Other Works by Therese M. Travis:

Therese is the author of some of my favorite works:

AFistfulOfGod_w11310_680 (2)A Fistful of God:
 
Note from Inner Source: I not only rate this novel among my top five young adult novels. I rate it in my top five all-time favorites. This story is for audiences of all ages.
 

She’s never taken a drink, but she’s recovering from alcoholism all the same.

After the death of her father, teenager Aidyn Pierce spends all her time cleaning up her mother’s messes. So when Mom announces she’s getting sober, Aidyn doesn’t believe her. Mom has tried before, and Aidyn knows there will come a time—a day, a week, maybe even a month from now—when the cravings will be too much, and her mother will start drinking again. So, when Aidyn is encouraged to attend support meetings, she refuses. No point in wasting her time when her mother’s going to drink again, anyway.

But what Aidyn doesn’t count on is the healing power of love and friendship, and the incredible strength of God to walk both mother and daughter through the dark valley of addiction and recovery.

AnnabellesAngel_w11882_680Annabelle’s Angel:

Annabelle Archer has been crushing on Rick Stockton for years. And now, when he notices her, it’s only because her brothers and sisters make it impossible for him to miss her. Annabelle still hasn’t decided if God’s will means she spends her life taking care of her six siblings, or if He has more in mind for her.Rick Stockton doesn’t mind that church activities and Annabelle’s brothers and sisters keep throwing Annabelle and Rick together. He just isn’t sure what it means. But as the kids keep trying to turn Rick into a snow angel—with sugar, baby powder, and more—he’ll work on figuring it out. Spending time with Annabelle’s family gives Rick a longing for one of his own…and an idea to make it happen.This Christmas, Annabelle may just find there’s a special angel in her corner, one that will stick around for a lifetime.

EverybodyLovesMickey_w11272_680Everybody Loves Mickey:

He’s a saint with a tarnished halo, and Aubrey Thomas can’t stand him…or can she?

Handsome fireman, Mickey Hurst is loved by all. He volunteers at the local parish where Aubrey Thomas works as an administrator. He sings in the choir. He leads the youth group. He even acts as the church handyman, but Aubrey knew him before he became Saint Mickey—when he told her he’d have to be drunk to kiss her…and he was. What’s so infuriating is that despite his horrible admission, Aubrey loves Mickey as much as everybody else.

Mickey doesn’t blame Aubrey for disliking him. After all, he kissed her when he wasn’t sober—and insulted her, to boot. Aubrey deserved a better man—a Godly man. But, since that fateful kiss, Mickey’s drawn closer to the Lord. With the intercession of God and the matchmaking parish staff, Mickey prays that this Christmas he will be able to prove to Aubrey he’s now the man for her.

 

Character Interview: Robin Ingram from Fixing Perfect by Therese M. Travis

FixingPerfect_h11394_300Today, we welcome Robin Ingram, the heroine from Therese M. Travis’s romantic suspense novel, Fixing Perfect.

Robin, you’re an island girl. Would you mind telling our readers a little about your life on Catalina Island?

I live with my grandmother in a beautiful house just a few blocks from the downtown area, nestled around Avalon Bay. Lucky for me, I don’t have to climb any mountains to get to the house, since I have only my golf cart to get there. I design and sew dolls for a co op gift shop, and I’m active in my church and with this great sports team. Everyone on the team has some sort of disability, but we don’t let it keep us from having a great time.

You’re an amazing woman. You live with disabilities, and you strive to help others. I know the title of Therese’s novel refers to you (without giving anything away), but I’d like to know from your perspective just how you view your disabilities.

I have disabilities? LOL. It’s something I’ve always had to deal with. Sometimes it frustrates me, a lot, but most of the time I’ve figured out a way around them. Some people seem to think I’m less of a person because I’m not exactly like everyone else. All I can say is, they’re wrong. If they want to find out why, they have to get to know me.

Your story is a suspenseful one, and I can just imagine the range of fears that you went through dealing with what was taking place on the island. How did you manage to even step outside your house?

God was with me every step of the way. He always has been. But yes, there were times when I was terrified. Sometimes I just had to close my eyes to what could happen and focus on what I needed to do. Just like in real life.

I fell in love with the hero of the story, Sam. He’s a topnotch guy. What would you say is Sam’s most redeeming quality—besides his heroism?

I fell in love with Sam, too! I think his best quality is that, while he has always acted as though I’m not disabled (at least most of the time), when he needs to, he just steps in and makes things happen for me. He’s always there for me.

You’ve been through a lot. What would you say is the most important precept you have learned through this ordeal?

I learned that I’m ok just as I am. I’m not less-than, less worthy, than anyone else. And I don’t need to be fixed!

God’s Love: The Right Direction by Therese M. Travis

God's Love the Right DirectionIn Annabelle’s Angel, Annabelle Archer comes to suspect that her life isn’t going according to God’s will, since she’s made most of her decisions based on fear and need, rather than discernment. And when she does try to figure out God’s will, a lot of people give their opinions, distracting her.

Isn’t this an issue for many of us? How many times I have heard or read, either in private conversation, or more often, a speaker or writer, tell me that I should

I should be a missionary to the poor—in my own country or out of it. I should join a group dedicated to a particular cause. I should raise my children following one particular mindset. And these are only a small sampling of the opinions others have given me about how I should live my life and direct my paths.

Maybe they’re right. But maybe they’re not (and they can’t all be right, or I’d be divided into at least a dozen beings).

I don’t want to give any spoilers, but Annabelle does finally come to a decision, and it’s the one idea I’d love for my readers to take away with them: God’s will for each of us is as individual as we are. His love for us gives us the desires of our hearts, and if we follow Him, we’ll find those desires fulfilled. Not to say God’s will is always the easy way, but it’s the right, and the natural, way.

It’s not easy to discern God’s will, either. My advice, if you’re struggling with this: Pray. Ask God to lead you. Ask Him to guide you to advisors who you trust, who will pray for and with you on this issue. Pray some more. Ask Him to give you a certainty of heart. Sometimes, putting out a “Gideon’s fleece” works. I remember I did this as a young child, even before I’d ever learned the Bible story. God answered me. And imagine my delight, as a teen, reading that passage and thinking—oh, wow, no wonder He answered me. But of course, He delights in us, and loves to answer our prayers. What a Dad, right?

I do hope you enjoy Annabelle’s Angel as much as I enjoyed writing it. The Victorian trappings of Christmas, the children—oh, those children!—made this story a delight to work on.

Merry Christmas, and may God bless you, your families, and your celebrations this year, and always.

Author Interview: Therese M. Travis

Therese TravisToday’s guest is Therese M. Travis, the author of Annabelle’s Angel, a Christmas Holiday Extravaganza novella from White Rose Publishing. Therese is a wife, mother, grandmother, follower of Christ. She’s been writing stories since the age of eight, and “telling stories” (you know what that means) since long before. She finally figured out how to put those stories onto the page. She loves to talk about Jesus and His love for us, about her family, crafting, writing, and praying. You can connect with Therese at Pinterest and on Facebook.

Therese, thank you for being here today. I loved Annabelle’s story because my favorite heroes and heroines are those that are not absolutely perfect. In Annabelle’s case, her flaws are physical, and she sees herself as flawed and not at all the way God sees her. This flaw prevents her from truly living. Have you ever known anyone who suffers from what they would consider a physical flaw and allowed themselves to be ruled by their own fears of what others see in them? 

Fay, thank you for having me! I’m so glad you enjoyed Annabelle’s Angel. I had such a good time writing it.

I’ve known plenty of people who have physical flaws that affect the way they see themselves—I’d have to say the majority of people I know at one time or another allow this fear to change the way they feel about themselves. Fear, guilt, grief—these all filter God’s perfect love for us, and leave us feeling like we don’t—and never can—measure up.

Annabelle also harbors some grief and guilt in the story, and I personally have found that grief affects individuals in different ways, and how we handle that grief can impact our daily lives, as it does Annabelle. Are you writing this story from experience in this regard, or do you know someone who has suffered with prolonged grief and guilt?

I think we all have to deal with grief and guilt. We all have our own ways of facing these emotions. I know that after my mother passed away, at first, I took all the blame for the difficulties in our relationship. Then, after a while, I gave her all the blame. Now, I know that nothing is perfect, that we all do our best, and that we’re all bound to fail at something. Now, I can remember Mom, know that she’s perfected in Christ, and that someday, I will be, too.

Annabelle has a handful with her “angels,” but the kids are so well-written. Do you have a lot of experience with children that you pour into the pages of the story?

Thanks. I have to say, I LOVE kids. I have four of my own, six grandkids (counting the one who will be adopted into the family when his mom and my son marry—he lived with us for a year and so we know each other pretty well). Also, my “vocation” is to teach a Catechism class for my parish, so I’m with kids every week. (and in that hour and a half, I have developed a tremendous respect for full-time teachers!). So many times the characters I write come to me fully formed. I just have to get to know them, but I can’t really mold them. I could point to a couple of brothers who were the models for Joe and Liam, but please don’t think they’re exactly the same as the characters. They just walked in and said, hey, we’re in your story (which is what Liam’s real-life counterpart would have done), and there they were.

I don’t want our readers to misunderstand. Annabelle’s Angel deals with deep issues, but you keep it fun. It is a light Christmas read with a message. Would you share your message with us?

That God has a plan for each of us, and only He knows fully what it is. We can rely on others to help us find that purpose, but in the end, it’s between us and God. It’s never the same for any two people, and no one can tell us what we should be doing.

What can we expect to read next from you or what is your next project?

Fixing Perfect comes out in January, and I’m working on several other stories. I’ve got three different middle-grade novels I’m finishing up. I like to have a wide variety of projects to work on.

Okay, and I’ve already ready Fixing Perfect, and I would be blessed to have you share with us again on Inner Source in January.

Thanks again, Fay. God bless, and Merry Christmas!

Character Interview: Annabelle Archer from Therese M. Travis’s Annabelle’s Angel

AnnabellesAngel_w11882_680Today’s guest is Annabelle Archer, the heroine from Therese M. Travis’s Annabelle’s Angels, a Christmas Holiday Extravaganza from White Rose Publishing.

Annabelle, welcome. Please start out by telling us about yourself and your family.

I’m the oldest of seven children. Freddie, Joe, Faith, Matt, Brody and Victoria are my siblings. We live with our grandmother, but I’ve tried to be like a mother to the others since our parents were killed.

I don’t want to give away too much, but you suffered an injury and it left you with a scar. What type of an effect did this have on your life?

I’m just—ultra aware of it. It’s always there, reminding me of the accident. Reminding me that if I’d just paid attention—but I never liked to talk about it.

You also have some psychological scars. What do you believe to be their impact on your life?

It took me many years to admit I had inner scars as well as the outer ones I tried to hide. And it’s still hard for me to talk about them.

I don’t want to blame anyone for what happened. Not me, not someone else. They call them “accidents” for a reason, and that’s what killed my parents—an accident. But for a long time I allowed myself to believe I could have done something to keep them alive. It kind of kept me from living. Not that I did things the wrong way, but I did them with the wrong attitude.

You have some “angels” in your life. I’m interested in knowing how you think your life would have been different without the responsibility for their lives that was placed upon you due to a tragedy.

Wow. You mean, if I’d been able to go to college, live life away from these guys? Wow. I can’t imagine….  I wish my parents could be alive now, but the thought of me out in the world without the kids is just—jarring. Besides, without them, how would I have ever met Rick?

Romans 8:28 tells us that “all things happen for good …” No one in their right mind would blurt that out to you immediately after the tragedy that you faced, but now with time between now and then, can you look back and see where God was working to make all things right for you?

As I was saying, how else would I have met Rick? It’s so hard to grasp that concept, the “silver lining” of God’s plans. But once you get it, you get it. In fact, the other day I made bread, and it refused to rise. And I thought, OK, God, how are we going to find the blessings in this mess? And He whispered, “We could try making a sort of pizza. It’s already flatbread….” guess I’ve learned to look for the silver lining.

‘Scuze me, someone just fell out of the tree…

I hope they weren’t hurt. Thank you so much for sharing with us today. I look forward to talking to Therese on Wednesday.
