INTERVIEW WITH HEIDI GLICK


Heidi Glick has a B.A. in biology, a minor in Bible from Cedarville University, and a passion for writing Christian fiction. Additionally, she is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and has written two articles for Intercom. When not working, Heidi spends time with her husband, son, and two dogs, Cocoa and Sparky. She attends Grace Chapel in Mason, Ohio. 
 
 
 
S.S. Welcome to the Suspense Sisters, Heidi! How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since I was 13. I started out writing plays.

S.S: Do you write full time? If the answer is no, what else do you do? If you are a full time author, what other jobs did you have in the past?

I don’t write full time because I stay at home with my son, which I enjoy. Sometimes I write while he naps or I work on freelance editing/writing jobs.

S.S: Tell us about the moment you finally felt like a “real author”?

When I heard my name mentioned in my book trailer and when I saw my name on Amazon, I finally felt like a real author.

S.S.: Who has been your greatest supporter as an author?

My husband and my mom have both been very supportive. So many times I’ve wanted to give up, and my husband has encouraged me to keep writing.

S.S:  Why suspense? Do you write in any other genres? If so, what?

I like to read suspense. I’ve tried my hand at romance, but somehow suspense always seems to work its way back into the story.

S.S: How does your faith play into your writing?

I share my faith through fiction, so faith is integral to my writing.

S.S: If you couldn’t write, what else would you want to do?

If I couldn’t write, but I get to do whatever I want, then I’d produce Christian films or do the audio for audiobooks.

S.S:  Tell us about your current release.

In Dog Tags, a former Marine determines to protect the woman he loves at all costs, and yet his own secrets might turn her against him forever.
 
S.S: Who is your favorite character in this book and why?

My favorite character is Mark Graham because he is a broken man but a man of honor.

S.S: Who is your least favorite character in this book? Why?

The Knight would be my least favorite, because after all, he is the villain.

S.S: What are you working on now?

I’m working on an environmentally themed suspense series and the sequels/spinoffs to Dog Tags.

S.S:  Now let’s get a little personal. Name two things on your “bucket list” that you haven’t done yet.   

Skydive—which might be hard to do because I have a fear of heights. Although, I have thought of going in one of those indoor skydiving simulators.

Travel to Europe.

S.S.: Where can readers find you on the internet?
 
 
S.S.: Which writers have influenced your style?

Ted Dekker and Irene Hannon.
