Welcome, Jerusha. Please tell us about This Dance.
This Dance, book one in the women’s fiction Sisters Redeemed Series (Write Integrity Press),

A tragedy three years ago destroyed Nye’s rise to the top of the dancing world as an upcoming tango star, and in the process destroyed her reason for living. She survived the pain and built a new life resembling nothing like the one she left behind, determined never to hurt again.
No love, no pain. No God, no games.
Nye’s emotional walls hold up perfectly until she meets a handsome lawyer and an elderly landowner. They seem harmless, but one awakens feelings she doesn’t want and the other makes her face the God she can’t forgive. Will these two men help Nye dance again?
What inspired This Dance?
About fifteen years ago, I was struck by the beauty of an aching song from a favorite songwriter/musician and by a tragedy in the artist’s personal life. With this song and true event as a springboard, God led me to write this tale of loss, grief, and joy in the midst of tragedy.
What are you currently working on?
In addition to prepping This Shadow, the second book in the Sisters Redeemed Series, I’m working on a mystery thriller for the Christian market. I’m excited about this story, which is set in Ireland and offers thematic substance along with the entertainment of suspense.
When did you first know you wanted to be a writer?
When I look back, I realize that I really always was a writer, before I ever knew it. As a young child, I loved to write stories and make my own little illustrated cardboard books. I didn’t recognize that writing would be the career for me until I was a freshman in high school. When I was ready to go to college, I had drifted to wanting to be an editor instead. By the time I graduated from college, I had a passion for screenwriting and headed into a few years in the film industry. It’s been a long and seemingly roundabout journey home, but God has brought me full circle, using everything I’ve experienced along the way to make me the novelist He had in mind all along.
If you could spend your day doing anything what would you do?
Watching favorite movies and eating favorite desserts!
LOL that sounds good to me, but it’d have to be calorie free desserts. šŸ™‚
