The TufFish Show features authors from different genres and businesses, but they all have one thing in common – they had a message or story they wanted to tell and courageously got out of their own way and made it happen. This show will inspire you to do the same because when you hear someone else’s story, you get the guidance and encouragement to keep going and get your book out in the world, too.

Stephanie and I had a fabulous and fun conversation about how faith is at the center of her love of writing and storytelling. Stephanie's love of writing about angels and the supernatural has strengthened her ability to develop complex characters and create worlds within her novels. By starting with the character, Stephanie offered one wisdom bomb after another for how to effectively world build, both macro and micro, within your book.
