I first “met” Jerusha Agen while co-writing A Dozen Apologies for Write Integrity Press. Now, I am deep into her Sisters Redeemed Series, so I’m delighted to host her interview on my blog. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
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’ve been called “J-Dog.” I do love dogs, but I never quite warmed to the nickname. At least it made me seem cool for a while. ☺
I am: A perfectionist fixer.
My best trait: Fixing everyone and everything.
My bad habit: Fixing everyone and everything.
Qualities I admire: The ability to fix things. No, I really can think of something else. Ah, yes, patience and contentment (then things don’t have to be fixed!).
What I like to read: Exactly what I can’t ever write—Nineteenth-century British fiction.
What I write: Whatever God gives me the idea to write! All mistakes are mine, of course.
What I watch: Way too many TV shows from the 60s and 70s. I think I was born in the wrong era.
My family: Seems like more animals than people these days! We’re at three dogs and two cats right now. They’re a fun, furry circus.
My favorite food, snack, or beverage: It’s always a tie between chocolate and ice cream. My solution? Have both whenever possible.
What I love to do: Eat!
What I admire: The best frosting in the world at our local grocery store bakery (I’d gladly give them as many free copies of my book as they’d like in exchange for the recipe).
What makes me happy: Snow and cold weather! Yes, I’m crazy.
What makes me sad: Summer and hot weather. See above for explanation.
I believe: I’ll have to go eat something now. This interview made me hungry!

Not all prisons have bars.
Charlotte Davis should know—she’s lived in one for years. She can handle getting slapped around by her boyfriend, Tommy, and even being forced to do things she would never choose, but when Tommy turns on her 10-year-old daughter, Charlotte must try to escape. With nowhere else to turn, Charlotte runs to the stranger her dying mother believed would help her.
Looking only for shelter or cash, Charlotte finds a family she longs to call her own and a gentle man she could learn to love. But if Tommy catches up with Charlotte, these strangers could discover the truth about her. Will they send her back to Tommy? Or can a Father’s love set her free?
