Author Showcase Feature with Book Excellence Award Finalist Kermie Wohlenhaus

Book Title: Shopping with the Virgin Mary

How did you know you wanted to be an author? I love to write and be of service to others. If my books can help others to learn, grow, or bring peace, the hard work is worth it.

What is your advice for aspiring authors? If you had to do it again, what would you have done differently? Keep writing while you do your life. Do not wait – everyday is a writing retreat even if you are working at another job. There is always, ALWAYS time to write. Just make it so. In between life, turn off the TV, media, and Facebook. Just keep writing – the book will get done a little at a time. The joy is in the writing and watching it develop.

Do you have any writing rituals or practices? I write whenever I can. Between loads of laundry, waiting for the mechanic to change the oil in my car, at Drs. offices, and throughout the day when I have a little or a lot of time. I write. I feel productive and so much better for have written that day.
