This year’s Frasier Contest has come to a close. The finalists and semi-finalists have been announced, and we are all eagerly awaiting the Pizza Party to find out who the winner is. In the mean time, lets meet one of the Judges that made it all possible: Kathleen Fuller, with her new book Letters to Katie.
Q: Kathleen, give us a tag line and a little blurb about your story.
A: Everything changed between them the first time he called her Katie.
Katherine Yoder has loved Johnny Mullet since the two were children, but he’s never returned her affections. Now Johnny is trying to forge a new life for himself by purchasing a farm and building a business of his own. But times are tough, and he soon learns that he can’t take anything for granted—especially Katherine. Before Johnny has the opportunity to tell Katherine his true feelings, she’s struck by a serious illness. While Katherine struggles to recall recent memories of Johnny, a surprise visitor comes back into her life, claiming that his letters speak of a history and a future for the two of them. With the two men vying for her attention and her memory still elusive, Katherine has never felt so torn. But will the solutions to both Johnny’s and Katherine’s problems lie in places neither one has ever considered?
Q: What do you want readers to learn/take away from this story?
A: One of the hardest things for us to do is to put God first in our lives. Katie and Johnny both have to learn hard lessons about God’s plan versus their own plans, and the importance of sacrifice. I hope Letters to Katie inspires readers to think about their own faith journeys, about times in their past when they’ve had to wait on God or gave up something they thought they couldn’t live with out, only to find out God had something better in store. God’s plan is always perfect, and almost never what we expect it to be.
