Jodie Wolfe is more than a favorite author. She is a prayer warrior, and a sister-friend. I hope you enjoy getting to know Jodie and leave a comment for a chance to win an Ebook of her latest —the Hope of Christmas.
Hi Jodie – Let’s start at the beginning…How did you get started in writing?
I wrote my first poem in second grade for a school project. Soon after that I started writing little stories and illustrating them. By the time I was thirteen I was writing my first novel.
Tell us about your new novel.
The Hope of Christmas is a collection by three authors. My story is called Picking a Bride for Paul. Here’s the blurb for it:
When Teddy Love’s neighbor and best friend breaks his leg, she pitches in to do whatever she can to help him on his farm. But when he enlists her aid in finding a wife, she comes to realize she has feelings for him.
Paul Baker follows his mother’s wishes by looking for a bride from the East who is refined and genteel, two qualities Teddy isn’t. When his potential bride arrives, he finds himself comparing her to Teddy. How can he go back and change things before he makes the biggest mistake of his life?
Is your story part of a series?
Sort of. My first story was in the Let Love Spring collection. My story, An Angel for the Cowboy was about Teddy’s sister, Essie. Here’s the blurb for it.
When the bank threatens foreclosure on Essie Love’s home, it’s up to her to provide for her sisters. She’ll do whatever it takes to save them, even if it means marrying a stranger.
Jud Steele is wanted for a crime he didn’t commit. Wounded and left for dead, he lands on Essie’s doorstep. While she nurses him back to health, he finds himself longing for a home and family.
Can two desperate people find a path that leads to what they both need?
Did you always want to be a writer?
I’ve had an interest in becoming a writer ever since I was a little girl.
What advice can you give to writers trying to break into the publishing world?
Take time to learn the craft. If you can, find a mentor. Be patient and wait for God’s timing.
What spiritual truths do you desire to convey to your readers?
With each of my stories, I desire to convey that true hope can be found in Christ.
What are you working on now?
I have a full length book coming out in May 2018 called To Claim Her Heart. It’s set in the backdrop of the Cherokee Strip Land Run in 1893 in Oklahoma Territory.
I love that you make yourself accessible. Where can readers connect with you?
Look for Jodie on her website, Stitches Thru Time blog, and Putting on the New blog as well as Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and Twitter.

Essie’s story sounds like one that I would really enjoy! I agree–Christ is the only real hope there is.
Welcome, Kay. Your blog title tells me you’ve had experience depending on that hope in Christ. Thanks for stopping by, sister.
