Marta Coffer grew up with an innate love of reading that quickly developed into a love for writing. She studied Imaginative Writing at Eastern Michigan University and has taught high school writing classes at her local home school cooperative. She lives in Michigan with her husband and their children.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love the possibility of a blank page. There is nothing like putting pen to paper and giving full rein to my imagination. The words seem to flow by themselves, and that is always so exciting. Sometimes stories play out like movies in my mind. It's a challenge to capture them with words. I love being in the zone, knowing I've got the scene down exactly as I saw it!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Quiet time before the kids wake up, time with God, and a chance to see my husband before he launches into his early days. And sometimes I'm inspired by breakfast.
What if World War II had a different outcome? What would the world look like through the eyes of an outcast? This is the story of Allison, a girl of mixed racial heritage who is forced to work for the government. It's a story of oppression and lies, but also of hope breaking into a hopeless world.
