Q&A: Becky Wade (Undeniably Yours)
1. What inspired you to write Undeniably Yours?
I was inspired by the Regency-era love stories I read growing up that featured wealthy and aristocratic heroines paired with brave-hearted, common-born heroes. I write contemporary romance, so it was great fun for me to bring these character types into a modern Texas setting and give their storyline my own unique twist.
2. What is the book’s theme?
Undeniably Yours is about a woman’s journey from weakness to strength. She’s able to find that strength, little by little, as she trusts in God’s power and plan.
3. How would you describe your writer’s voice?
My voice is funny, authentic, and modern. I write love stories about imperfect people redeemed by a perfect God. It’s my hope that my books will charm and entertain my readers, while simultaneously stirring their emotions and encouraging their faith.
4. Is Undeniably Yours part of a series?
All of my books stand alone. They each tell a complete story in and of themselves. At the same time, I’ve long wanted to write a group of books about members of the same family, and starting with Undeniably Yours, I’ll have that chance! Undeniably Yours is the first of four books about the Porter family from Holley, Texas. Each book will detail the story of a different sibling.
5. What does a normal writing week look like for you?
I’m the mother of three (ages 12, 9, 4). I write in and around taking care of my children and house. Typically, I block off three big chunks of quiet (thus kid-free!) writing time every week.
Some moms may listen to music or talk on their cell phones while driving carpool or pushing their preschooler on a swing at the park. Not me! I spend those moments dreaming up dialogue, scenes, and character traits.
