Interview with Christian non-fiction author Lisa Sparrow

Today’s special blog guest is Lisa Y Sparrow. Her first autobiographical Christian book, His Eye Is on the Sparrow is now available.
Bio:
Newcomer Lisa Sparrow has endured
more pain and loss in her life than anyone should be expected to. With her
first book, His Eye Is on the Sparrow, she reveals the challenges she
has faced in stunning detail. Lisa has learned the hard way that if you stay
where you are in life, you’ll never reach your full potential. Her journey to self-love
and acceptance has been a hard fought battle and one she is led by God to share
with her readers.
Lisa is a divorced mother of two
wonderful children, Lauren and Leon, and currently lives in Columbus, Ohio. She
currently works as clerical support for a local lighting company.
With His Eye Is on the Sparrow,
Lisa hopes to shed some light on the subject of mental illness in this country
and the process of healing. Although this is Lisa
s first project, it certainly will not be her last.
She is currently working on a follow up scheduled to be released in 2014.
Welcome,
Lisa. Please tell us about your debut book.
His Eye Is on the Sparrow is not so much a self-help book for those suffering with mental
illness. What I did was share my experience living my entire life being
different and how I faced life being challenged with mental health issues.
What
inspired you to write this book?
I got frustrated trying to find
books trying to understand depression and they are either written by mental
health professionals or celebrities and I am neither, I am everyday people. I
have had a lot of people ask me what can they do to help when I am in a mental
health episode and it reasons that people just want to understand and help
their loved ones, so I wrote this for them.
 
What
exciting story are you working on next?
Right now I’m working on another
autobiography about an 18-month period of time when a childhood friend tried to
kill me. I spent a lot of time trying to rebuild my life after that and this
book will talk about the many challenges that I encountered.
When
did you first consider yourself a writer?
This is something that I am still
adjusting to, but I’ve been writing since I was about 12 years old.
Do you
write full-time? If so, what’s your work day like? If not, what do you do other
than write and how do you find time to write?
No, I wish I were a full-time
writer. I am clerical support for a local lighting company here in Columbus,
Ohio so I write when I’m not working.
What
would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
My environment has to be clean
(thank God that I have OCD ~ Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). I also light
candles and listen to music.
As a
child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A romance writer.
Anything
additional you want to share with the readers?

Never ever give up on your dreams,
regardless of how long it takes!!! It has taken me over 30 yrs (WOW) to get to
this point, but I am so HAPPY that I stepped out on faith and kept putting on
foot in front of the other and now, I am a published author!
