Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I like to start each day with, "This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!"
When did you first start writing?
I started writing as a child, mainly in my diary and later in my journal. I had penpals throughout school and loved to write poetry and stories about the adventures I had with my friends. But I never thought of myself as creative.

  • Aunt Harri Walks the Line on April 04, 2012
    (no rating)
    Aunt Harri is a collection of stories about an elderly woman that Ray Wiseman, a retired writer, originally wrote as a newspaper column. Aunt Harri deals with such aging issues as giving up a driver’s licence and choosing a retirement home with humour, faith and insight. Wiseman delights the reader with his irony and humour. A great read!
  • Echoes from the Hill Top on April 04, 2012
    (no rating)
    Eight authors from St. Andrews Church in Fergus showcase their talent in this anthology. Edited by Mary Lou Cornish, these stories include adventure and humour fiction mixed with true incidents from a Christian worldview. Stories span over many years and across a variety of countries. A delight to read!
  • A Difficult Passage on April 04, 2012
    (no rating)
    This is a true story of life on the Canadian prairies from the eyes of a child growing up in the 1930s and 40s. The story gives us a dramatic hint of life on the prairies during the depression that included extreme poverty and extreme weather. Wiseman’s characteristic humour and a splash of hope make this an inspirational read.
  • The Christian Olympics-Going For The Gold Crowns on Nov. 17, 2012

    In The Christian Olympics: Going for the Gold Crowns, S.E. Gregg compares the Christian race to the Olympic Games. As a former personal trainer, I had an increased interest in this book. Gregg makes connections between the athletes competing in the Olympics with our Christian walk and the importance of competing for the prize. As a believer that prayer is to the spirit what exercise is to the body, I resonated with Gregg’s way of helping Christians see themselves as players in the Ultimate Olympic game. Gregg teaches spiritual lessons and offers practical advice in a challenging way with chapters such as The Training and Discipline, The Workout and The Closing and Rewards Ceremonies. An interesting read!
