I’m typically NOT a shy person when it comes to answering questions…so if you’ll ask, I’ll answer.

If you have any questions, please feel free to place them in the comments below or email author@slstoutermire.com

1. How do you deal with writer’s block?
Truthfully, I didn’t experience it. I never picked up my pen and notebook unless I knew that it was time to write. It was a feeling that would overtake me when it was time to write.

2. What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Everything!!!! I love to read so knowing that another book exists for people to read makes me happy. Knowing that my story may help someone else along the way is a blessing to me.

3. What’s your advice for aspiring writers?
If you truly want to be a writer and a writer is what you are meant to be, DO NOT GIVE UP!!! Own it!  No excuses. This book was the best and most difficult story for me to write. Why? I finally found my Strength but I had to tell my story to the world.

4. What are you currently working on?
I am currently anticipating the release of this book but I have already started to draft a series of children’s books as well as my next nonfiction adult book. I am also preparing for my children to return to school. I’ll continue to volunteer as much as possible in various communities. I’m continuously advancing the vision behind NuVision Lifesaver as well.

5. How do you get inspired to write?
I trust what I am feeling. I don’t sit down and think of my titles or subjects. They are given to me. When I’m given a book by Holy Spirit, I can’t rest until I accept the assignment. Even after accepting that I am supposed to write a book, I have to allow the process to occur as God allows. I don’t force it.

6. Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
This book was truly placed in me by Holy Spirit. I didn’t have any thoughts of sharing any part of my story but God had a very different plan for me. He showed me why the first story that I needed to share was the story of one of my battles.

7. Where did you discover your love of books?
Honestly, my role model who was also my aunt. She placed a book in my hand at a very early age and encouraged me to read everything that I could possibly read. She would take me to the library. Every book allowed me to escape the harsh realities of my own life. The words always seem to come to life for me. It’s probably one of the reason that I prefer books over televisions. I read everything that I can. I’ll never be able to thank her enough for instilling the love of books into me.
