Interview with Michelle Griep

Your current Clash hostess is: Michelle Massaro  

Michelle Griep: Java, chocolate, and historical fiction—with a little sci/fi and fantasy thrown in the mix—that’s how I choose to spend a lazy afternoon. On more hectic days, you’ll find me wearing a superhero cape with a large ‘M’ for Mom emblazoned in purple embroidery. I’m a suburbanite, mini-van driving, homeschool mama who grew up in the hood of south Minneapolis.

Welcome, Michelle! Lovely first name by the way. =)  Almost all authors are avide readers first and foremost. What was your top reading pick of the last year?

The Hourglass Door and The Golden Spiral (Books 1 & 2 in The Hourglass Door series) by Lisa Mangum.
Have you learned anything new about God's character through this book?
Not new, but a truth that traveled from my head and pierced me in the heart. My hero Ragnar says to heroine Cassie, as they’re tromping through a dark forest, “Think you I would lead you into danger? Even so, I am well armed.” Those two sentences nailed exactly what Jesus does for me on a daily basis.
I love when He frames his own nature within fictional words, especially when they are on my own page. Okay, what snack do you like to have nearby as you write?
Plenty of dark chocolate and java.
Yummy. Me too! Share something about the book that you think readers would like to know.
My gramma’s sister went missing when she was 2 years old and was never found. Made me wonder what happens to missing people. Granted, some meet with foul play. Others leave the social grid by design. Still…many are never accounted for. Where do they go?
Difficult to make sense of this fallen world sometimes. Hopefully our pain and our history can point others to the Lord. Who is your favorite character you've created and why?
Definitely my hero, Ragnar. He’s in-your-face humble, fiercely devoted to God, and except for the scar on his face, the kind of man any red-blooded woman would drool over.
Michelle, thank you so much for visiting us today. I'm glad to get to know you a little better. Do you have a question for our readers today?
 Many missing people are never accounted for. Where do you think they go?
