He has been in love with her for years, but he can’t let her get in the way of his divine calling as a pastor to plant a new church, can he?
Let’s take a trip down South and get to know Jan Thompson, author of the inspirational romance series, “Savannah Sweethearts”:
What inspired you to start writing?
When I was young, I saw my mother writing books that were never published. I began writing on an Olivetti typewriter when I was 8 years old. My love of reading came from my parents, and the more I read, the more I wanted to write my own books. So it began that way.
How do you measure your success as a writer?
As a Christian author, I feel that writing is a calling. If I fulfill the calling the Lord has given me, that’s success enough. As long as I please Him, I’m going to be okay.
“For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:10).
What was the inspiration for your latest book?
My Savannah Sweethearts series is almost complete – five books down, three more to go – and I have enjoyed going to Savannah. Love that place and also the beaches of Tybee Island. I began writing this contemporary Christian romance series as a result of my research on colonial Georgia history for the historical romance genre I was writing a few years back. The characters in my Savannah Sweethearts and Seaside Chapel (set on St. Simon’s Island) are descendants of the characters in my colonial historical romance series that are still unfinished. You can say that those prequels are yet to come!
What are you currently working on?
I am writing Books 6-8 of the Savannah Sweethearts series, and Book 2 of the Seaside Chapel series.
Where can readers find your books?
My Savannah Sweethearts and Seaside Chapel series are exclusively on Amazon at the moment. Readers can find me at: amazon.com/author/janthompsonauthor
