More About My Friend Whitney:
RECOVERY IN THE BIBLE
Whitney McKendree Moore says she writes “campfire stories.” Her books are for any Christian discouraged by a loved one’s alcoholism, especially for those who may not realize that help is available. Twelve-Step recovery led Whitney to discover that a relationship with God can be interactive, up close, and personal. She writes to tell of God’s incredible help in her life three ways:
Divine Intervention: “Whit’s End” is her personal testimony of how God revealed denial and delivered her from it into a whole new life.
Direct Connect: “Downloads from God” and “Contemporary Psalms” are companion volumes — excerpts of what it sounds like to be in Quiet Time with the Maker of the Universe.
Divine Connections: “BS-Busters” and “Praise in the Storm” are books of encouragement, urging gatherings where it is safe to “get real” with God, with ourselves, and with each other. Two other titles (“God Can!” and “What the Conductor Said”) offer additional “campfire stories” of God speaking, even through each of us, to one another.
Whitney writes to come alongside other Christians who, like her, have reached the point of saying, “I can’t; God can; I need to let Him.” She has a website called RecoveryintheBible.com and a blog there called The Question Corner.
“Cozy Author Interview With ~ Author, Whitney McKendree Moore”
1. When did realize that you wanted to be a writer and author?
Ever since ever! I remember seeing a TV ad for coffee when I was a girl (in the late 50s) where a woman was typing in front of a roaring fire with a dog at her side. I always thought that was a picture of me.
2. How long does it take for you to write one of your books? It took me a decade to write “Whit’s End.” At one point, the manuscript was 420 pages. Now it’s 112. For me, it was tricky trying to tell my story without doing so at someone else’s expense.
3. How do you balance your work schedule when you’re busy writing? I am retired now, but when I worked, I spent many nights and weekends and even vacation days writing. I guess it’s true that if you’re a writer you write!
4. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk? I am very colloquial, and I actually seek to sound as though I am talking. Also, I make up words. A lot.
5. How do you come up with ideas for your books? I just decided to package up all those pages I’d been writing on nights and weekends!
6. When did you write your first book? 1986. It was called “Where To Next?” and is out of print now.
7. What are your hobbies when you’re not writing? Walking, singing with guitar and others, playing the piano.
8. How do your family and close friends think of your writing? One relative said, “We loved the cover.” And not a peep else!
9. What was one of the most interesting things that you learned about yourself when you published your first book? How reluctant I was to market it myself. I no longer consider “marketing” a swear word. Now I think of it as reaching out to encourage someone with what I have been given to share.
10. How many books have you written? Which one is your favorite? Twelve books of my own, plus another five helping other people tell their stories.
11. What do you think makes a good story? The truth, which is so often stranger than fiction. When I wrote for magazines, I would describe my subjects as “extraordinary & ordinary people.”
12. Now lastly, where do you like to kick back and write your books? My favorite is to take a thick stack of blank white paper to my great big bed with a bunch of sharp pencils and start there. It never goes well for me if I get onto the computer too soon…
