Last friday, popular LDS author Michelle Ashman Bell interviewed Gale Sears, author of The Route.
Here's a highlight of the interview, but you will want to read the whole interview and can do so here.
M.B.: When did you first know you wanted to be an author?
Gale: I liked writing stories and reading them to my mom (a captive audience) when I was eight or nine. Later in life, I became intrigued with the theater, and began writing plays. This inclination lasted into my adult life. As I neared middle age several stories began bumping around in my head, and the content of these stories seemed to fit more neatly into a novel rather than a play.
