Author Interview- Tonya Burrows

Author Interview- Tonya BurrowsI am honored to have been able to interview Tonya Burrows. I have personally read her newest release Vision of Darkness and  you can read my review here
Here is the interview!

1. What were you like at school? 
I was quiet, kinda shy, nerdy with my nose always stuck in a book. I had a small group of friends that I hung out with and didn’t really venture outside our circle.

2. Were you good at English? 
Yes...and no. My problem was I preferred to read (and write) what I wanted to rather than what was assigned. But when something sparked my interest--an assignment on the Arthurian legend? Yes, please! Write a poem about World War II? Yup, I’m all over that!--then I threw myself into it and did very well. I was also good at B.S.ing my way through papers I didn’t particularly want to write. :)

3. What are your ambitions for your writing career? 
I hope this will be a life-long career. My first book is only a year and a half old, so I’m still basically a newcomer …

Book Review- Married For Christmas by Noelle Adams

Now having never really taken interest in that genre I may not have picked it up if I had known. Not that I am against them, I am Christian. (We will not go into religion!) 
With all that being said, I really enjoyed this book. At first like all books, I felt it was a bit boring for the set up. Then....nothing really big happened yet for some reason I was hooked! I couldn't stop reading it. There was nothing that stood out that kept me reading, it just captivated me and I had to know what happened. I read this book in 24 hours.
As for the Christian undertones in this book, it did not slap you in the face with a bible. It did not push beliefs on you. It was simply centered around the church. 
One thing I did find a bit odd in the story was the swearing and then the profuse apologies for it.…
