"Healthy, Overcomers, Purposed with an Eternal Perspective"
Hope-in-Christ Book Club interviewed Waletta Mason-Dunn, author of "More Than Sisters." We enjoyed reading and discussing her novel. It was indeed a page turner. Here are her answers to our questions after the book study:

Question 1: You having an amazing novel that could easily be turned into a movie! If your novel was chosen for the big screen and you could choose the actors and actresses, who would you choose to play the characters?

Answer: Wow!  I didn't anticipate that question. If "More Than Sisters," was chose for the big screen, I would love to see Kiki Palmer as Dani, Taraji Henson as Gayle and Della Reese as Olivia.

Question 2: For those that are aspiring authors, what does your writing process look like?

Answer: First, I start with an outline. Then I fill in the parts that I know at the time. It keeps me organized. But it usually changes because I am open to whatever the Holy Spirit has in mind.

Question 3: Which character of "More Than Sisters" do you identify with the most?

Answer: I can identify with all of the sisters, but I identify with Dani the most.

Question 4: What other authors have inspired you to write?

Answer: I am inspired by Kimberly Lawson Roby, E.N. Joy, and Mary Monroe. However, my biggest inspiration was my sister, Judi Ann Mason. She is with the Lord now, but she taught me many things while she was here. I have my memories of her until we meet again.

Question 5: What is your least favorite part of the publishing / writing process?

Answer: My least favorite part of the process is publishing. I know that this is an important part, but it feels like work to me. The process of preparing the manuscript before submitting it for publishing requires meticulous formatting such as margin requirements, line spacing, etc. I would much rather spend my time writing.

Question 6: What advice do you have for other aspiring authors?

Answer: Never give up!  God's Word says that your gift will make room for you. My journey began years ago, but I believe it started with a seed that God planted in my heart. As long as I was obedient to his Word, He continued and continues to open doors. For instance, who would have thought I would have connected with this group. God opened this door. He's good like that.

Question 7: What do you like to do when you're not writing?

Answer: I enjoy reading, working crossword puzzles and playing scrabble. My kids are grown, but when they were younger, most of my time was taken with their activities. My advice to all parents is to enjoy your kids, because time moves very quickly. I also like to sing. But that's not my gift either.

Question 8: What question have you always wanted to be asked in an interview? How would you answer that question?

Answer: If you were to ask me why I choose to write Christian Fiction, I would say that it is my way of sharing the love of God. People are hurting and we can help each other. When I think of how the Lord has manifested His love in my life, I want to share it. Maybe one of my readers will be inspired to find out more about Christ. He must receive all of the Glory.

Question 9: How long did it take to write your novel?

Answer: "More Than Sisters," was my first book. It took me four years to complete the manuscript. My second book, "Faithful Father," will be released this month and I worked on it for about six months. I am currently working on Book 3. I'm curious to find out how long it will take to complete the manuscript.

Question: What is your favorite motivational phrase/scripture?

Answer: Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Won't He do it?!!!!

Mrs. Waletta Mason Dunn has a great talent and a beautiful! Her literature will cause many to Hope-in-Christ!!

"More Than Sisters" by Waletta Mason-Dunn is a must read! This novel is one that you won't be able to put down. I read this with my book club and we all loved it. "More Than Sisters" falls under the genre of Christian Fiction. Waletta Mason-Dunn introduces the reader to three sisters, Olivia, Gayle, and Dani. Olivia is the older sister that is left with the task of raising her two younger sisters and training them up in the Lord. Olivia also comes to realize that in addition to covering her family in prayer and teaching them God's way, she must also protect them from danger. She finds herself fighting for one of her sisters after evil comes knocking. 

This story is very well written and the plot line is very different from other novels. The author adds a touch of suspense to keep you guessing what will happen next. It is also very clear that the author is woman of God. Her characters display the characteristics of true Christians living in an evil world. In the end, the love of Christ and love for one another caused them to triumph and overcome their difficult times.

Overall, I loved, loved, loved this book! I would recommend it to believers and unbelievers alike. When you come to the end, you will begin to reflect on what God has brought you through and those whom He placed in your life to love you through it all.

I gave this book 5/5 stars. This is a great work of Christian Fiction Waletta Mason-Dunn!
"One of the Few" by Jason B. Ladd is an amazing book about the Christian world view. Jason B. Ladd describes how he comes into the knowledge of Jesus Christ after years of struggling with belief in the Christian faith. In his book, he addresses many of the different world views versus the world view through the lenses of God's holy word. For example, he addresses how the world minimizes alcohol abuse, but the Word of God addresses it more seriously and as Christians, we are to walk as the redeemed in Christ. Jason uses scripture extensively as support of God's perspective verses man's view.

   I  truly enjoyed reading this book that would fall under the genre of apologetics, of which I love dearly! Mr. Ladd writes in a simple way for any individual to understand. He also uses the analogy of being a marine which  prepared and equipped him to persevere and walk without fear as he searched for the truth. He clearly shows his passion for those that walk blindly to the truth of Jesus Christ. I am looking forward to more publications by this author. 

   Overall, this book is very well written and should be read by believers, skeptics, and unbelievers alike. The military comparisons will assist you in understanding what our walk with Christ truly resembles. I gave this book 5/5 stars, and I would recommend it to those that are seeking the truth of Christ, our only hope.

    The scripture for Hope-In-Christ Book Club:

    Matthew 6:22-23 - The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

    We must continue to guard our eyes and our heart. Therefore, the books are carefully selected and assured that they are rooted in God's Word.
