Shellie Neumeier's "Driven" by leaving a comment
Robyn loves her friends, enjoys her youth group, and looks forward to meeting cute Caleb Montague. But when a caustic news reporter challenges her school’s prayer team, Robyn must choose: defend their right to meet on campus and pray for whomever they wish or back down at the principal’s request.
Now she must learn what God wants her to do. And she had better learn fast, because there’s a supernatural enemy in town whose sole mission is to stop her—no matter the cost.
"The plot [for Driven] morphed over several dinner conversations with my kids and my hubby," Neumeier says. "It started with a whole lot of what-if questions and ended with a girl, a demon, and a whole lot of forgiveness.
Once that idea was ready to be written, Shellie got to work writing anywhere and everywhere she could--even in the car while her husband drove. Shellie feels writing very well could be God's gift to moms. " It's something that can be done from the comfort of your home, when time avails," she says.
"I had a wonderful time. Such sweet readers with great questions. My favorite part was answering the ones about whether or not I scared myself :D. It made me realize how much closer writing that MS brought be to God. Boy did I pray for those dark scenes. It was a good reminder to keep that dependence even now. Especially now!"
We're so proud of Shellie's success and happy to have had her on COTT. Can't wait to see what's up next for this author!
