ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jan grew up surrounded by books and storytellers. With Pastors and Teachers populating both sides of her extended family, we aren’t surprised that she wanted to be a first-class storyteller herself.
Born and raised in Michigan, Jan is the descendant of Amish, Mennonite and Brethren immigrants who settled in Berks, Somerset and Lancaster Counties in Pennsylvania in the mid-1700’s. The descendants of these immigrants pioneered in Maryland, Ohio, and finally Elkhart and LaGrange Counties in Northern Indiana in the 1850’s.
During the years when Jan was raising and homeschooling their children, she and her husband moved nine times in thirty years, finally landing in South Dakota where they enjoy incredibly Michigan-like weather. A northerner is always a northerner!
The ideas for Jan’s books come from the stories told by her parents and grandparents, seasoned with a lot of research and imagination.

FAST FAVES

Dogs or Cats  – Dogs

Facebook or Twitter – Facebook

Paperback or Kindle – Paperback

 

rem:  Hullo Maria! Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?

MARIA:  I was raised in Delaware County outside of Philadelphia, PA. I live about 45 minutes north of there in Montgomery County.

rem:  Tell us three random things about yourself no one knows.

MARIA:  I’m a terrible typist. Ironic, I know.

I often feel like a teenager. Maybe it’s because I live and breathe teenagers; I teach them, I am a parent to them, I write about them, I’m often mistaken for them. I know that’s hard to believe, but I get that frequently. (rem: you DO look rather like a teen… )

I feel like I have yet to accomplish anything significant in my life and I hope that this novel will put those feelings at ease once it’s published. (P’SHAW!! You’re a teacher—that’s like the most significant thing you can do!)

rem:  What is your favourite quotation and why?

MARIA:  Live, love, laugh. It’s so simple and sums up how we should embrace life.

rem:  So simple, and so profound. What’s the most random thing in your bag or on your desk?

MARIA:  Axio, an energy drink packet. It is also a mood enhancer and provides better mental acuity.

rem:  I’m sure you need it being a teacher! What’s your all-time favorite movie? Favorite TV show?

MARIA:  Cinema Paradiso in Italian with subtitles. I know, you probably never heard of it.

Friends. I could sit all day and watch re-runs. I have to tell my kids to shut it off or I get sucked in its vortex.

rem:  You’re right, I’ve not heard of it—but I’m the same with shows I do watch! Can we say #bingewatching…  If you could go back in time, what era would you choose and why?

MARIA:  Bible times during Jesus’s life to witness the Sermon on the Mount because I truly believe that I would be in awe of His live teachings.

rem:  Amen! Do you have a favorite Bible verse? And why is it a favorite?

MARIA:  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Phil 4:13) I love this verse because it is a reminder to put my faith in Christ and in doing so, I can accomplish anything. It is also my protagonist’s mantra.

rem:  Such a good reminder that what we do is in Him, and not of our own strength! If you could spend an evening with a fictional character, who would it be and why?

MARIA:  Miss Brenda from my novel because she is genuine, caring, selfless, and a prayer warrior with a heart of gold.

 

rem:  I can’t wait to meet (read) her. What do you think is significant about Christian fiction?  How has being a novelist impacted your relationship with Christ?

MARIA:  I think it is important to make Christ the center of our lives, so by reading about it, He is still the focus. As a reader, you’re not far off in a fantasy world void of our Savior if you are reading content with Christ in it.

I love this next question. Being a novelist has definitely brought me closer to the Lord. I have had to rely on God every step of the way. I have had to pray about what to write, what to edit, what to add, who to trust to help me along the way, what I should spend money on regarding the publication and so much more. My novel was inspired by God. I never knew what He wanted me to write until I sat down to type it. Publishing a novel is the hardest thing I have ever done and I have boy/girl teenage twins!

rem:  For all that it’s true in any calling, there is something about making words to share, that truly draws us in to rely on Him. Literally for every word. When reading, what makes or breaks a story for you? Your fiction pet peeve?

MARIA:  I don’t like it when stories are long and drawn out with a lot of brooding.

rem:  What would you do if you weren’t writing?

MARIA:  Run. I love running and would love to run a marathon.

rem:  OY! I’ve never been much of a runner but I love to walk. I’d walk a marathon with you. What are you reading right now?

MARIA:  It Doesn’t Hurt Anymore, Release The Past and Embrace Your Future by Dr. Arvis Murrell. It’s Christian nonfiction.

rem:  So hard to do, though, isn’t it—release the past? What do you munch on while you write?

MARIA:  I don’t really munch on anything. I have a water bottle next to me at all times.

rem:  Such discipline! (said the perpetual muncher) Your degree is in communication and journalism. How did that translate into writing a book?

MARIA:  Comm/Journ is basically writing in different forms. I have always enjoyed writing and received excellent grades and praise for my writing. As a major, it’s probably lends itself to writing a novel more than most majors.

rem:  Words is words, after all. You’ve had your hand in a variety of things—graphic arts, wellness, finance, and most recently education. Which was your favorite and why?

MARIA:  I would have to say education, because I am able to interact with students and hopefully make an immediate impact in their lives through helping them learn and discover. In fact, I inspired a student to write a novel.

rem:  I wanted to be a teacher at one point in my life. Will have to settle for living vicariously through my characters. (I have 4 teachers in my new series.) Wee bit off topic, but one of particular interest to me—you are the mom to twins. What’s the best thing about having twins? The hardest?

MARIA:  I joked about having twins earlier, but quite frankly they are a blessing and I wouldn’t want to have it any other way. I actually think it’s easier having twins than having kids of different ages. My kids are at the same stage in their lives which makes it so much easier as a parent. They are very different in looks and personality, so we get variety there. At this point, the hardest thing is teaching them to drive. They both need to get their time in behind the wheel and as a working mom and novelist, I have to defer to my husband to teach them how to drive. Not to mention he is a much better driver than I am. I can teach just about anything, but driving is where I draw the line.

rem:  I’ve always been fascinated with twins and multiples. Wished I was one, wished I had had twins. But, I’ll have to settle for living vicariously… Tell us a little about your writing journey.

MARIA:  I wrote and illustrated books when I was in third grade. I loved it! I dreamed of writing a novel since high school, perhaps even younger, but I was never much of a reader until my thirties. I decided that I needed to read in order to write, so I set out to read as much as possible. I started my novel about ten years ago. It took about six months maximum to write while working during the day. I put it on the proverbial shelf until about two years ago when I finally decided to get it published.

rem:  It is such a daunting process! What is your Writing Routine? Where do you write: In a cave, a coffeehouse, or a cozy nook?

MARIA: I wrote my novel in my finished basement at my desk on a desktop computer. I started after the kids went to bed and wrote until about 2 am. Since then, I progressed to the modern age and write using a laptop. Now I work anywhere. I especially enjoy writing while sitting on a lounge chair on my patio that my husband built with primitive tools.

rem:  What makes you struggle as an author? How do you handle it?

MARIA:  The writing is the easy part. It’s trying to figure out how to promote your book without breaking the bank or having a break down.(rem: no kidding!)  I have also had many technical difficulties with my computer. My formatting was destroyed after spending hours manually formatting it to create certain aesthetics. I took it to the Geek Squad several times and was a wreck. I tried to remain calm to no avail. Instead, I made jokes in an attempt to keep some composure. Ultimately, I would be a complete mess if I didn’t exercise regularly, pray constantly and meditate. Recently, I made getting proper rest a priority because I was only getting a few hours of sleep each night. I was not only irritable, but I was completely unable to function after several nights of insufficient rest. Thus, the Axio energy packet in my bag.

rem:  So sorry about the computer and formatting nightmare. But good on you for treating yourself with TLC. What do you enjoy most about being a writer?

MARIA:  The element of surprise. I never know what I am going to write.

rem:  Amen, Sister!! #PantzersUnite  Your debut novel, Not Again, releases soon. Tell us about why you wrote this book.

MARIA:  At first, I wanted to write about what I know, me. Then I realized that my life is boring, so the Lord led me in another direction. In the end, I believe the Lord inspired me to write a story to help teens deal with stress and to deal with the pressures of sex in a more realistic and relatable fashion with some much needed comic relief to compensate for the weighty mature topics.

rem:  Powerful stuff. What was the hardest thing about publishing? The easiest?

MARIA:  There have been so many challenges! Technical issues, waiting on people to get back to me for various different reasons, trying to figure out how to navigate the very complicated world of publishing with its acronyms, terminology… In the beginning I never knew what anyone was referring to, so I asked. I still don’t know what people are talking about half the time. If I knew then what I know now in terms of challenges, I may not have written my novel.

Perhaps the easiest for me would be the fun part that feeds my gregarious nature, promoting on social media. I am very active on FB where I have an author FB page, Maria T. Henriksen, author that I write mostly inspirational and scriptural posts. I want my page to be a place where friends/followers/readers can go to be lifted up, to learn and grow. The opportunity to interact with people around the world feeds my soul. I find that part is easy and relaxing as well as inspirational for me. I recently became more active on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest as well and I have a website/blog that helps people to connect with me. Mariathenriksen.com

rem:  How did you choose your characters’ names?

MARIA:  I loved the name Christina since I was a child and I love roses, so I named my protagonist Christina De Rosa. I like the name Avery, but it’s only been the last few years that I heard of it and I wanted a simple generic last name to go with that was close to D for De Rosa in the alphabet, so I chose Evans. I like the names Morgan and Katie, so I named Christina’s best friends those names. Some of the other names I used are from friends and family. If I don’t like a character I might choose a name that I don’t like.

rem:  That’s so fun. Did you think of the entire story before you start writing?

MARIA:  Absolutely not! I didn’t think of much before I started writing.

rem:  What is YOUR favorite part about the book or why do you love this book? Why should we read it?

MARIA:  I love the characters in my book because they are true to life. In fact, they inspired me to forgive. You should read this book to be lifted up in difficult times. I strongly feel that God inspired me to write this novel to help others cope with trials and tribulations. While I was writing/revising I was going through some challenging stuff (neck surgery) and the Lord helped me through it by providing me with techniques to help me deal with the stress. I, in turn, incorporated them into the story. Furthermore, I think that teens today are so inundated with sex and pressured to have sex outside the marriage bed, so I wanted to create likeable, realistic characters that experience the same pressures but handle it differently than the way society deems acceptable.

rem:  Kudos to you for your efforts!! Please give us the first page of the book.

MARIA:  This is the Prelude:

            NO! NOOO! NO! STOP, PLEASE STOP!” For two  whole  glorious  years,  I  cherished a

little, yappy dog, named Mugsy, from the moment I laid eyes on him in 1977, at the age of nine. Our neighbors from down the street, the Martins, gave us the puppy from their dog’s litter, shortly after my parents, brother, and I moved to our newly constructed house in the sleepy town of Pennsford, a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

            The Martins kept one of the puppies, a skinny honey-colored, short-haired, homely looking runt with short pointed ears, a bushy tail, and a short temper. He was named Elvis, as an ode to the recently departed.

            I found the contrast between my Mugsy and Elvis humorous. Mugsy was the cutest mutt. He was a Shih Apso, a combination of a Lhasa Apso and Shih Tzu. His fur was sandy brown and soft. His ears were floppy and bounced when he walked. They came from the same litter, yet one looked scrappy like he needed bathing, and the other dog, my canine buddy, was lovable, soft, clean, and ready to be hugged.

            Mugsy and I shared a special relationship in the fleeting time she graced us with her presence. Sometimes I pretended it was Mugsy and I against the world. She was always there for me, ready with licks and cuddles, unconditionally.

 

rem:  What is one take-away from your book(s) that you hope readers identify with?

MARIA:  I hope that my readers will become closer in their walk with the Lord; to depend on the Lord for everything; that the Lord will put people in their path to help them during trying times; that the Lord will provide them with coping mechanisms to reduce stress.

rem:  Like puppies. #justkidding sWhat’s next? Is there another book or a sequel?

MARIA:  Yes, I started a sequel. Not Again, the Fallout. The sequel will expound on a theme that was started in book 1 and will introduce another extremely important theme that the readers will greatly appreciate.

rem:  Anything you’d like to add?

MARIA:  My greatest hope is that readers will come to know the Lord through my novel, since that’s the greatest gift anyone can receive.

rem:  Thank you so much for chatting with us at my little nest today!

NOT AGAIN COVER REVEAL

Christina De Rosa has a potentially deadly secret that threatens to get out. As an innocent young teenager, Christina survives a terrifying sexual assault that destroys her self-worth and trust.

In her daily struggle, Christina searches for ways to keep her torment at bay, so she can function as a “normal” teenager. Meanwhile, Christina’s spiritual journey leads her down a path causing conflict within, as she’s riddled with guilt and shame.

A chance encounter with her longtime, hot crush, Avery Evans, sparks a fire in Christina that she can’t  extinguish. As the sweet, loving, knight in shining armor he readily portrays, Avery offers the safety and security that Christina craves.

In her quest for internal peace, Christina must make a decision. Will she give her heart, body and soul to the ever popular, Avery Evans?

Will Christina’s nightmares become all-consuming or will her discoveries lead her to a renewed way of life?

Find out if true love triumphs in this edgy, faith-based young adult page-tuner, set in the 1980s.

*This is NOT your typical Christian coming of age story. Fierce faith doesn’t come without a fight. Prepare for heartache, traumatic events, real romance, and actual scripture in these pages. Bring tissues.

 

AND NOW…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Isn’t it lovely!!
