How Carrie Fancett Pagels Brainstorms Her Stories (Episode 57)

On this episode of “The Romantic Side of Suspense,” I’m talking with Carrie Fancett Pagels, Ph.D., the award-winning author of more than 20 Christian fiction books, including ECPA and Amazon bestsellers. Twenty-five years as a psychologist didn’t “cure” her overactive imagination! A self-professed history geek, she resides with her family in the Historic Triangle of Virginia but grew up as a “Yooper.” Carrie loves to read, bake, bead and travel—but not all at the same time!

“This is the hardest book that I have ever written,” Carrie says about Behind Love’s Wall. “I do normally plot my novels, and with this one I did also, especially the back-and-forth part. … My husband and son are good brainstorming partners too.”
