michellestimpson_noweaponformed_1400pxAuthor Michelle, tell us about your book?In this sequel to Michelle Stimpson’s beloved debut novel, Boaz Brown, LaShondra and her Boaz, Stelson, are living the ideal American lifestyle, except for the subtle and not-so-subtle ways society keeps reminding them that they aren’t the norm. She’s African-American, he’s Caucasian, and their oldest child is already tackling the question of identity. It’s bad enough when outsiders show their ignorance or disdain. But when the issues come from family, LaShondra finds herself wondering if Stelson can truly comprehend the challenges looming on the horizon.

When a church picnic leads to a head-on clash between LaShondra’s fears and Stelson’s optimism, the truth prevails. But that’s just the beginning.

LaShondra learns that the drama during the family outing was only a set-up for an even more rigorous spiritual battle to save her family. After turning her back to the pressures at work and yielding to Stelson’s leadership, LaShondra finds herself interceding for a husband she hardly even recognizes anymore.

Is this the beginning of the end for the couple that truly endeavored to honor God’s ways, or will this season fortify their marriage for His glory?

How did you come up with ideas for this book? For all of my books, I’m always a little discouraged about 2/3 of the way through. So, I have to pray through the discouragement because the struggle is real!

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book? For all of my books, I’m always a little discouraged about 2/3 of the way through writing the first draft. So, I have to pray through the discouragement because the struggle is real!

Why do you write? Is it something you’ve always done, or always wanted to do? Or is it something that you started fairly recently? I’ve always known I had a book in me—I didn’t know I had 25+ to write! I think I will always write. It’s just in me.

Any advice to give to aspiring writers? Write, write, and keep on writing!
