Ever wonder about the guys who cut the hole in the roof to lower their friend to Jesus? Whatever made them think of that? Or what about Jacob’s servant Eliezer, sent to find Jacob a wife? How did he feel finding a wife for another man? And the Ethiopian eunuch, converted by Philip. What happened after Philip left him?
I think about things like that. As a young girl, I read Lloyd Douglas’ The Robe and I was hooked. Seeing what happened (or could have) to the Roman soldier who held Jesus’ robe at his crucifixion was fascinating!
After The Robe, I read all the Biblical fiction I could find. Now I write it. The idea of taking a character mentioned only a few times and making up a life and history for that person, while remaining true to the Scriptures, is irresistible to me.
I look forward to hearing from you!
