Introducing inspirational romance author Hallee Bridgeman
Jenny Wheeler: But now here’s Hallee. Hello there, Hallee and welcome to the show. It’s great to have you with us.
Hallee Bridgeman: Thank you so much. I’m excited to be.
Jenny Wheeler: You are the best-selling author of inspirational fiction with nearly a million copies sold. That’s a point for congratulations and celebration for starters. And we are going to be talking today about one of your recent series, Love and Honor, but you’ve got six other series and also half a dozen or so standalone books.
Give us an idea of where did you get started? Was it with the inspirational fiction, right at the beginning?
Hallee Bridgeman: That’s what published first, but I wrote years ago, I was originally a secular romance author, not a Christian romance author.
I had 10 books written that were secular, typical, straight up romance. And then. I shelved them for a few years, I went through a divorce and I got remarried and I had babies and then one day I pulled them out and that was when I changed them to Christian fiction.
Six of those original stories have been published, but I redeemed them. I went in and I made them Christian instead of just a romance story.
What else you’ll hear in Hallee’s interview:
Why she rewrote her first ten books
How Hallee manages a fulltime job, home schooling two ten boys, and publishing 49 books as well
How being a ‘military brat’ has influenced her writing.
Why Hallee likes to focus on focus on ‘Type A’ strong men. and realistic characters who face real world problems.
What she tells other writers in her seminars on writing red, hot, squeaky, clean romance.
