Bethany House

I was inspired to write my first published novel by… my mom. She was the most influential person in my writing career. When I was young, she helped facilitate my love of writing by reading aloud to me, giving me good books to read, and providing the kind of environment that fostered …

Are you a re-reader? Why, or why not? And if you are, what are some of the books you have read over and over?

Other than my Bible, I seldom reread books. But that’s only because (1) my reading time is very limited and (2) there are so many books waiting that I still want to read.

Bookish Question of the Week

BookishQu250Years ago I became a member of Shelfari and LibraryThing, long before Goodreads arrived on the scene! Now, I have a Goodreads account that I visit every now and then, but forget to update as I acquire more books and only occasionally post reviews there.

A Worthy Heart

Bethany House


I grew up in… Brampton, Ontario, Canada—a city outside Toronto.

I was inspired to write my first published novel by… Well, it wasn’t published, but my 6th grade teacher, Mr. Guistini, was the first person to tell me I should write a book. I did finish one in my teens and got my first rejection!

The books that have most influenced my life are… As a child—Anne of Green Gables, and the Nancy Drew mysteries. As an adult—Nora Roberts got me interested …
