Today I’m interviewing Sara Beth Williams, author of the new release, Anchor My Heart. Sara Beth, thank you for joining me today. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a wife, mother of 2, dog mom of 2. I am from Sacramento, California, born and raised. I love reading, writing, Christian music, graphics creation, coaching and teaching in most any capacity. I currently work as a freelance publicist, and a Montessori teacher’s aide.
What is your book about?
Anchor My Heart tells the story of Matt Lawson and Tara Pierce. Matt has lost everything. In the wake of a life-altering tragedy, anxiety from his childhood rears its ugly head, making it difficult to cope with reality. Tara has walked this road before and refuses to let Matt walk alone. Unexpected attraction flares, but Tara senses Matt’s not ready to give himself away again. Can she risk her heart and their friendship and let God step in to heal where she can’t?
Who was your favorite character to create?
I fell in love with Matt in When Hearts Collide. I fleshed out his back story later on after finishing book one, and had to go back and add in some elements for consistency sake while I worked on book 2 and 3 simultaneously. He’s the strong, silent type, and has a soul-deep love of music. I absolutely love that about him. Music touches me deeply. Though I don’t play professionally, or even past beginner/intermediate stage, Christian music and Christian worship music is how I stay connected to God and has the power to greatly encourage me when I’m going through rough times.
What’s next for you as an author?
I am currently working on a handful of other projects. The one I am pitching to agents is about a pop star who has one summer to pull himself back together or risk ruining his lucrative career—and he’s not about to let his sister’s roommate derail his last chance.
