First, let me tell you a little about Joanna. We met about ten years ago. Out of the blue I got a phone call from someone who wanted to be a writer. She sounded nice enough and so I invited her over. I talked to her about writing, about proposals, about articles, about writers’ conferences and she soaked it in.
But she didn’t just soak. She did it! And her enthusiam, matched with her natural gifts, launched her to the top. Not long after we met, Joanna attended Mt. Hermon Christian Writer’s Conference with me and was voted Best New Writer. How exciting is that??
Now, years later, Joanna and I decided we needed to celebrate our friendship and our newest books. This fall Joanna has a much anticipated book out, Having a Mary Spirit.
We had a terrific night and about 200 people showed up. Joanna and I read from our books and we had snacks both savory and sweet. Mostly we rejoiced with friends at what God has done in our lives and writing!
Here are a few glimpses of our fun. I’ll be posting more later this week.
