Author Spotlight: Lorna Seilstad


Welcome to the Blog Blitz for The Mosaic Collection, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE COLLECTION

For His glory…
The Mosaic Collection is an international community of women authors who use faith-based fiction to touch hearts with the good news that Christ’s finished work on the cross has made us one family, and to nurture affection for the people God has placed within our circles of influence, so that the grace and glory of God may become visible and personal to everyone we meet.

…and our good
We are sisters, a beautiful mosaic united by the love of God through the blood of Christ. We have experienced the redemptive, restorative power of God’s grace in our marriages and families, and we believe our God is able to heal, restore and redeem our brokenness. His love fills us with the courage to persevere, and to offer others a Christ-like compassion that is full of His wisdom and grace.

Today I’m excited to be featuring author Lorna Seilstad whose books I first discovered when I read book number one in her Gregory Sisters series, When Love Calls. (Definitely a recommended read, btw!)

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

January2020LornaSeilstad

Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad writes multi-layered stories which contain a generous dash of humor. She is the author of the Lake Manawa Summers series and Gregory Sisters series (Revell) and has stories included several novella collections. She was a Carol Award finalist in historical romance, but today writes both historical and contemporary stories. When she’s not eating chocolate, she enjoys doing flowers for weddings, teaching Bible classes, researching history, baking cookies, and working with her 4-H club. She and her husband live in Iowa with their three adult children living nearby.

Cornerstone message from the collection:

God loves you more in this moment than anyone could in a lifetime.

Hidden talent/little-known fact: I almost always know the time without looking at a watch or clock–even in the middle of the night.

Plotter or pantser: I’m sort of a hybrid. I make a plot skeleton and then fill in the flesh as I go.

In no particular order, ten of your favorite things (i.e. hot cocoa, a warm breeze, the sound of my kids’ laughter, etc.) : Oreos, listening to recorded books, the smell of the air after it rains, singing in church, Ghiradelli’s double hot chocolate, tuberous begonias, working with kids and watching them grow, the crunch of leaves in the autumn, baking, dimples
