I Love a Good Mystery!

Interview with Author, Jody Hedlund


Author, Jody Hedlund
Today you're in for a treat with a visit from Author, Jody Hedlund

I've gotten to enjoy a few treats from this amazing lady. The first was when I happened onto her blog, FULL of ideas, advice, and insight into the writing and publishing biz. I've learned so much!

The second treat was when I decided to take the plunge and read a historical fiction. I hadn't read anything historical since Jane Austen's books started being made into movies, but that was over a decade ago.

She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience.

  1. I think I just might get a copy of The Doctor's Lady.


  2. I am inspired to read more about Narcissa, now, myself!babykf at hotmail dot com


  3. Hi Jody, I had not heard of Narcissa Whitman until now and I would love to read a story based on her life. I read The Preachers Bride and really enjoyed the book. I think Kevin and Gwyneth starring in a movie about this book would be great. Both are great actors and Gwyneth looks a lot like the cover model. Thanks for stopping by to chat and share with us. Would love to win The Doctors Wife.misskallie2000 at yahoo dot com


  4. Thanks, Haley! Wouldn't it be great to have Kevin and Gwyneth star in a movie for your book?! 🙂 A girl can dream, can't she? And Narcissa's journal was fascinating, spelling mistakes and all! I love reading real eye-witness accounts of events!


  5. Kevin Costner and Gwyneth Paltrow would make a dynamic couple for your (would be)movie. I have read Narcissa's journal and loved it. I'm sure I will love your book as well. Jody, I admire the fact you homeschool your kids and find time to write! You are truly an inspiration.
