Felicia Bridges

Biography

Felicia Bowen Bridges has never met a stranger. No matter your background or history, her early years as an Army brat trained her well in the art of finding common ground. She has a knack for striking up conversations with new friends in the strangest places. Her experience as a Pastor's wife, mother of four, and short-term missionary have provided a wealth of relevant and hilarious anecdotes as well as a variety of life lessons. As a published author, her nomadic childhood inspired a love for travel and missions which permeates her writing. Regardless of the topic, the core theme will always be the Gospel and the power of God to transform lives.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
As an Army BRAT, I lived in eight different states and two foreign countries by age fifteen. This experience played a huge role in my writing and in my adult life (my husband just shakes his head when I re-arrange furniture). My first series, The International Mission Force series, shares the exciting tales of teenagers serving on the mission field and connecting online via the International Mission Force website. These teens have to learn to adjust to a brand new culture, a new home, and a new community, just as I did.
What advice would you give an aspiring writer?
The best advice I received was to attend a writers conference. Although I was hesitant to invest so much, it was the most effective way to learn the craft, build a network of fellow writers, and make critical connections in the publishing world. Building connections with editors, publishers, and agents, as well as other writers who will likely serve as Beta readers and influencers for you, is invaluable. For Christian authors, this experience is even more precious as you are able to build a team of prayer warriors to encourage you and pray for you on the journey.
