Pat Simmons, author of A Christian Easter
(Generation Quest Press)
Despite the enticements, Christian refuses to succumb without a fight. And it becomes a tug of war when his recently adopted ten year-old daughter, Bethani, wants to participate in her friend’s Easter tradition.
Christian hopes he has instilled Proverbs 22:6, into the children’s heart in the short time of being their dad.

PS: Promotion through social media, interaction through social media and attending a lot of author events.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish A Christian Easter?
PS: A Christian Easter took a couple of weeks. I always want to make sure that I’m getting God’s message across and not Pat’s.
