Jodie Wolfe, Telling Stories Where Hope and Quirky Meet

 In Author, Books, Let's Chat, Uncategorized

I met author Jodie Wolfe several years ago at the ACFW Conference in Indianapolis. Her joyful smile and warmth drew me to her right away. I knew I’d found a friend and dear fellow author at that conference. We share an agent and now a publisher! She is multi-published and has been a finalist in several writing contests. I’m so pleased to have her on my blog this week!

Jodie, please tell us about your writing journey. How did it start?

My writing journey started when I was in second grade and wrote my first poem as a school assignment. Soon afterward I started coming up with little stories. While it’s been a long journey to publication, God has brought things about in His timing. I’m blessed to have four stories published and another coming out next year.

What made you decide to write inspirational fiction? And more specifically historical romance?

I wouldn’t even think about writing anything other than inspirational fiction since it’s all I read and it’s what God has called me to as well. As for the historical romance, it’s my favorite genre. I will occasionally read a contemporary story or mystery, but most times you’ll find me with a historical romance in my hand. J

How has God guided you through this process?

Writing and publishing in the industry is not for the weak of heart. It requires patience and tenacity, being able to withstand crushing waves at times. That isn’t to say that there aren’t mountaintop experiences and joys along the way too. The important thing is to make sure that this is an area where God is leading you.

Do you have any scriptures you’d like to share that have inspired you?

My two favorites at the moment are Romans 8:28 and Jeremiah 29:11-13.

Would you like to tell us about your latest release, The Hope of Christmas?

The Hope of Christmas is a historical collection. My story is about one of the sisters that I introduced in Let Love Spring. My story is called Picking a Bride for Paul. Here’s the back cover blurb:

When Teddy Love’s neighbor and best friend breaks his leg, she pitches in to do whatever she can to help him on his farm. But when he enlists her aid in finding a wife, she comes to realize she has feelings for him.

Paul Baker follows his mother’s wishes by looking for a bride from the East who is refined and genteel, two qualities Teddy isn’t. When his potential bride arrives, he finds himself comparing her to Teddy. How can he go back and change things before he makes the biggest mistake of his life?
