Welcome to Authorview! For the next few months, I’m going to post an interview with a different author every Tuesday. The questions are always the same, but their answers will sometimes be vastly different, and so much fun!
Nickname or “wannabe” name (If you don’t have a nickname, you can choose one you’d like, that tells us a little bit about who you are): I was Hallee the Homemaker for years. Now I transition between Hallee the Homemaker and Hallee the Storyteller. And Mom.
I am: Blessed in ways I cannot even express.
My best trait: I quickly analyze and come to solutions to problems.
My bad habit: I interrupt people. Because I’ve already quickly analyzed what they’re going to say. (see above)
Qualities I admire: Honesty. Integrity. Cleverness.
What I like to read: Cookbooks. The older the better. I have one written in old English. It’s really hard to understand.
What I write: Christian fiction – romance, suspense, historical (WWII).
What I watch: Campy action.
My family: Pretty much rocks. My kids are clever and fun. My husband is my solid rock.
My favorite food, snack, or beverage: Cake. Which leads to other problems considering my sedentary job.
What I love to do: Go to the movies.
What I admire: Heroes – people who risk all for the life or liberty of others.
What makes me happy: Feeding my family and friends.
What makes me sad: The helplessness in poverty.
I believe: That I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
is a best-selling Christian author who writes action-packed romantic suspense focusing on realistic characters who face real world problems. Her work has been described as everything from refreshing to heart-stopping exciting and edgy.
An Army brat turned Floridian, Hallee finally settled in central Kentucky with her family so that she could enjoy the beautiful changing of the seasons. She enjoys the roller-coaster ride thrills that life with a National Guard husband, a teenaged daughter, and two elementary aged sons delivers.
A prolific writer, when she’s not penning novels, she blogs about all things cooking and homemaking at Hallee the Homemaker(tm) (http://www.halleethehomemaker.com). Her passion for cooking spurred her to launch a whole food, real food “Parody” cookbook series. In addition to nutritious, Biblically grounded recipes, readers will find that each cookbook also confronts some controversial aspect of secular pop culture.
Hallee is a member of the Published Author Network (PAN) of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) where she serves as a long time board member in the Faith, Hope, & Love chapter. She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and the American Christian Writers (ACW) as well as being a member of Novelists, Inc. (NINC).
Hallee loves coffee, campy action movies, and regular date nights with her husband. Above all else, she loves God with all of her heart, soul, mind, and strength; has been redeemed by the blood of Christ; and relies on the presence of the Holy Spirit to guide her. She prays her work here on earth is a blessing to you and would love to hear from you. You can reach Hallee at firstname.lastname@example.org
