Question Addressed:

  • Before we get into your latest book first share a little bit about yourself, focusing mostly on what you do full-time.
  • How long have you been teaching at Elizabethtown College?
  • Now for the moment our listeners have been waiting for…how did you manage to fit Lewis into your book and what is your novel about?
  • How long did it take you to write and what was some of the process?
  • Tell us about what you have at the end of the printed book…something called “Source Materials.”
  • Take a moment to gives the names of some of your other books about Lewis and what makes each of them unique.
  • Shifting gears to more general questions…Why do you think Lewis has such an appeal to so many people?
  • Which book(s) by Lewis has meant the most to you?
  • Any book or books by Lewis that you didn’t like or had a difficult time with?
  • Besides your own work, what book(s) by other authors ABOUT Lewis are must reads?
