Andi, tell me about that first magical moment when you realized you were a writer.
Oh, I think it was in graduate school for literature. My teacher, Ted Gup, suggested that I might have what it takes to be a writer, that I had a unique voice. Until that moment, I was on track to be a literature professor, but Gup's words work me up to something I have always loved - the way words create worlds and emotions.
You recently started a new online writing community. Tell us about what services you’re offering.
Can you relate any success stories from your new community so far? (Small successes are also great!)
You currently have one short book published, God’s Whisper Manifesto, which lays out the life-philosophy for you and your Virginia farm. It’s a remarkable statement of personal belief and intention. Without recounting your life’s story, can you describe one cardinal moment that led to the worldview that informs the God’s Whisper farm?
To that end, how is development on the farm going?
After the wedding, we are considering another Kickstarter, this time to build our barn that will not only give night-time shelter to our future goats but will also become a concert and reading space for artists. Stay tuned.
How many visitors do you get at the farm every month?
Your two existing works are nonfiction. Do you have any plans to write a novel?
Finally, what would you like to plug?
I'd love for folks to check out the God's Whisper Farm website. We're just getting rolling, but if people subscribe, they'll get updates on all the happenings here - including upcoming workshops, concerts, and readings. Plus, they'll be the first to know when the goats and chickens arrive.
