Anne Baxter Campbell is a multi-published author of Christian books which contain abundant romance in the pages of historical conundrums. She’s a mom and grandma active in church and community as well as a writer of blogs and books.
Have you ever regretted killing off a character? Why?
Anne: Yes. Loukas (the one I figured would become the beloved physician, Luke, in the following novel) went and got himself into a fight with pirates, even though his friends told him to stay inside. He was a physician, not a fighter. I had a future planned for him, and he totally blew it.
What does your family think of your writing romantic suspense?
Anne: Truthfully? Well, it’s a mixed bag. My step-daughter, my daughter and my granddaughter love it. My two sons? Well, at best they be like, “Congrats, Mom. When’s supper?”
What is one of your favorite ways to connect with readers?
Anne: Mostly through Facebook. Readers often friend me or follow my FB page. Lots of fun exchanges that way! Also love to meet them face-to-face at signings, hopefully not so busy there’s no time to learn a bit about them.
What is absolutely essential for you to write?
Anne: Quiet, prayer, research docs and books handy, a picture in my head of each character, a mental outline of what’s going to happen, and my puppy by my side.
Current book: Blessed by Time
A woman grieving for her dead daughter disappears. Her husband searches for her, but the police think he is the culprit.
