Carol Moye is a recently retired public school teacher, ending her career teaching English. Although she loved inspiring teenagers to create poetry, photography and music, she is delighted to have time to write.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, in a Christian home. My mother did Bible studies with us sometimes, and made us memorize scriptures.
When did you first start writing?
That's hard to say. I know I wrote a lot in high school, more poetry than anything else. I don't remember writing much before then. I wrote a bit when my kids were growing up, but mostly journaled until about 5 years ago when I seriously started writing again as time and energy permitted. Throughout my teaching career I taught others how to write. I retired early in 2013. Since then, I have been writing a lot.
This is a highly inspirational book. Mr. Wright shares his wisdom and reflections in much the same way that David did in the biblical Psalms. Most of the poems come with an encouraging foreword, most with related scriptures. I really enjoyed reading this book.
Delightful book. These poems are well written and very inspirational. Not being Catholic, I appreciated the universal way there were written calling all readers to a let their light shine and share their faith with those who are most in need.
I loved this book. It picked up right where the first one left one, and left me wanting more at the end. Lily is so human and real. Her grandmother is charming and cute. I wish I could visit her myself. The twists and turns kept me moving through it quickly. It's an easy, but engaging read. Although there are Christian themes, it is not preachy, something else I appreciate. I'm really looking forward to the next book.
Very cleverly written book. I love how the protagonist uses his human skills to fight for change in the afterlife. It's a fun read. There is a bit more exposition than I generally appreciate, but it seems to be necessary to make the reader understand how things work in the afterlife. The ending is quite clever.
This is a wonderful story about a mother's love in spite of obvious danger, and the power of those who have left this world to help. I meant to only read a paragraph or two, but I couldn't put it down until I had finished.
I really appreciated reading the books in this series, and watching the ways that Lily grew, both in her relationship with her grandmother and her relationship with Christ. Her grandmother is absolutely adorable. The other characters go a long way to enriching the story. It's a bit more preachy than the others, but I respect that author's desire to share her faith.
