Lets take a few moments to get to know a bit more about Pam Funke!
Q: Can you tell us something unique about yourself?
I am a Christian Fiction author who enjoys reading, writing, painting, drawing, photography, scrapbooking and anything creative.
Q: What is your all-time favorite book?
My all-time favorite books would be the Harry Potter series.
Q: How did you begin writing professionally?
I just took the chance that someone would be interested in publishing my book and was thrilled to be accepted at each publisher that I had submitted it to.
Q: Why did you choose to write Christian fiction? Do you ever think about branching out into a new genre?
Why did I choose Christian novels? Well, mainly because there are hardly any Christian novels out there anymore and the books that are filling the shelves and homes of adults, young adults, teens and children are not feeding their minds or souls with positive things. Now mind you there are some very good non-Christian novels out there that instill a positive message.There has to be something in a good book that not only feeds the mind with positive values and teaches the reader how to improve their life and give them some hope, then what's the point? A good book should have a lesson in it that someone can learn something valuable from it and not just an escape away from their problems in the real world~ because when the story is over the real world is still there and so are their problems. They should be able to come out of that story with something positive that they can use to help them in the real world. Yes, I will probably try out other genres as well but they will still be Christian based.
Q: What is your major influence while writing? Do you have a muse?
My family has been my biggest influence. I know that if I write something that even the pickiest reader enjoys then I’m doing pretty good.
Q: Where do you most enjoy writing and is there anything that you always need to have with you when you write?
I enjoy writing outside on a warm day. I always have to have my laptop and IPod with me when I write.
Q: Do you have a favorite character in any of your books?
Yes, Katie Farnsworth
Q: Out of all the books that you have published or will publish soon, is there one in particular which is closest to your heart?
I would probably say my Four Horsemen series.
Q: What should we expect from the Four Horsemen series as a whole?
You can expect 7 novels total in this exciting series. You can expect a fast-paced but exciting thrill ride from your favorite reading spot.
Q: And most importantly, what’s next for you after The World at War?
I am currently working on a book entitled A Valley Experience. It’s about a young woman’s trials and tribulations in her quest to find God.
