INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR REBECCA WATERS


Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Certainly. I was a wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, and professor before I started my writing career. Then I was a widow, a teacher, and a missionary before I returned to my writing career. Now I describe myself as a mother, grandmother, and author.

What do you do besides writing?
I volunteer at my church, travel, and love to walk. I also love to paint, though my artistic efforts are not where I want to go…yet.
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?

This is an interesting question. I don’t generally have a “picture” of my characters in mind but when I saw the image for the cover of Breathing on Her Own, I recognized Travis and Molly immediately! And they looked strangely similar to my sweet husband and me standing there.   

What are some songs that you listened to or inspired you while writing your book?
Breathe by Michael W. Smith. That song didn’t come into the writing until though. I didn’t even have the title for the book until I was half way through the first draft. But it is the song I hear when I think of that book.
What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book?

I think the big piece is about not living on “borrowed faith.” Just because our parents may have been believers doesn’t make us believers. And Just because we go to church doesn’t make us believers.

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

I have another book, Libby’s Cuppa Joe set in Door County Wisconsin currently out and I am working on a romantic series set in my hometown of Lutz, Florida.


Thanks Rebecca!
