Willowy Whisper on The Letter
Willowy, welcome to Homeschool Authors! Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a seventeen year old homeschooler, saved by the grace of God. I am also a passionate writer, a pianist, guitarist, photographer, cover designer, and incurable romantic. Willowy Whisper is my pen name. I am the author of six novels, five of which are published, and numerous short stories.
Everyone’s homeschooling experience is different. What do you think made yours unique?
Get up, eat, do the chores, then delve into school work. Nothing too unique about my homeschooling life, I'm afraid.
How did being homeschooled prepare you to write?
I was taught grammar with an amazing curriculum (Analytical Grammar), and I'm quite positive I would never have survived the rules of writing had I not been taught so well. Also, having my teacher (my mother, of course) at home and available all the time helped immensely, because she was not only my cheerleader, but also my editor.
What caused you to start writing?
I had a cousin who decided to write a novel. After hearing about it, I was intrigued and decided to do it myself.
What inspired The Letter?
The Letter (Hills of Innocence #2) is my latest novel. I can't pin-point anything that really inspired me, however.
Here is a list of my other published work:
Whispering Leaves Saga
Here All the Time
Would you give us a synopsis?
At first it was just a letter, maybe a joke, a coincidence. Now it was a living nightmare, threatening everyone he loved, pulling his greatest fear into a reality…
As the letters keep coming, Brock Sumner watches his world shatter at his feet. Building a wall around his heart seemed like the only answer. Is there any other way to protect the woman he loves?
A drunk, with no incentive to change; a runaway, with a price on his back; a young child, afraid in the dark…
Will the letters, perhaps, pull their lives together? Or will the killer find a way to destroy them all?
Who will enjoy The Letter?
The Letter (as well as The Innocent) would be enjoyable to anyone who enjoys mystery, western, romance, suspense/thriller, Christian, redemption, and of course, fiction. It is intended for ages 13 and up, but appropriate for all ages, although there is some violence and kissing.
Do you plan to write more books?
The Lord willing, I will never stop writing books. I am currently writing The Pursued (Hills of Innocence Trilogy #3).
