Interview with Author Allison Wells

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I’m a wife and a mother of four children. I have one daughter and three sons - and yes, life is crazy to say the least. I love it. I’ve been a Christian since I was sixteen. I am a graduate of Clemson University and I still live close enough to hear football games on Saturdays. I love to be crafty, and have recently become obsessed with hand lettering. It’s so relaxing. My favorite color is turquoise and I have been tattooed ten times.

What do you do besides writing?
When I’m not writing, I am usually trying to nap because my life is hectic! I spend my days taking children to sports, church, scouts, doctors, etc. So when I have a spare moment, I want to sleep. But otherwise I love to read, and as I said before, hand lettering is my newest addiction.


Do you have images you can share that come close to how you picture your characters? Do you like to find visual inspiration for your characters before or during your writing process?

I have searched a lot of stock images for what I think my characters look like. I pinned several of them to a Pinterest board! https://www.pinterest.com/orangealli/book-war-torn-heart/

What are some songs that you listened to or inspired you while writing your book?
I listened to a lot of worship songs while writing this, as well as some 1940s big band music. Nothing specific, just something upbeat to keep the creativity flowing.


What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book?

I would love it if my readers finished the book and knew that God has a plan, even if we can’t see it right now. War happens, death happens, heartbreak happens, but none of it is a surprise to the Father who loves and cares for us.


What can we look forward to coming from you in the future?

The sequel to War-Torn Heart will be released late this year I hope. It’s called When Waves Break and follows the story of Abby and Harvey’s twin daughters Eve and Juliette.
