Lyn Interviews Author Leann Harris


Today it’s my pleasure to interview Author Leann Harris who has written for Love Inspired Romance and is now branching out with something new. Here’s Leann:

Tell us a little about your writing and your real life.

I taught until I had babies. When they started school and I was home alone, the desire to write sprang up in me. It was aided when my husband brought home a TI pc, which used DOS, and WordStar. God gave me stories and although I have a mild form of dyslexia, I knew I had to write.

That reminded me of my dh’s first purchase of a PC–yes, it was DOS and was made by ZENITH!  Can you imagine?

2-Was there a time in your life when you think God challenged you to become stronger? Please share.

I could start with having babies, for which I was totally unprepared. I remember crying on the way home from the hospital, because now I was supposed to know how to care for this child. It was natural, wasn’t it? I was totally clueless. I felt I did such a rotten job at being a mother, and I feared I’d ruin my daughter’s life. One day when I was praying God brought to mind the verse in Joel 2:25–And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten.
With those words, God reassured me my mistakes with my daughter were healed. She wouldn’t be scarred for life and I was freed of guilt. Both child and mother were whole.

3-What is special about your most recent book to you?

When this spy story occurred to me, God said the book wouldn’t sell immediately. There was a perfect time for it and it wasn’t when I wrote it. After my battle with cancer, God brought people into my life to put the book out as an ebook–the cover artist, and the formatter. I got the message now was the time. It was a healing exercise to read the story, do some rewrites and let my brain, after the radiation, form new pathways in my head. Heaven pushed and I walked through the door. “–Leann

    Also, I want to thank Lyn for the opportunity to talk about my latest book. This book has a special place in my heart.

  2. Leann Harris says:

    I remember my old computer. I got so good in the commands, that I was faster than Word. But time marches on and we must live with what we have now. I also had a kneeling chair where all the pressure on your back was transferred to your knees. That’s gone, too.

  3. Lyn Cote says:

    Great, Danie. I want to warn you not to add your email address to your comments. I get that info through my website anyway and spammers might pick it up. FYI~

  4. Danie says:

    Hi Lyn,
    Yes, to answer your question, No I don’t like to wait and yes I’ve had too wait to get New Chickens. I finally got my chickens and I am so thankful that I waited because I got them cheep. So when I do wait for the right timing God rewards us with something so much more than we can deserve and that is his umpmost deserving love.

    • Leann Harris says:

      True, Danie. God’s timing is perfect. And although we think we know how to order things, His timing is much better.
