Eve, what is something about you that makes you unique?


I don’t know if it makes me unique, but I have real conversations with animals. I believe they talk to not just me but people in general. You just have to listen.

That is definitely unique. I love it! Carolyn, is there something that makes you unique?

I have the personality type of ENTJ. Apparently, it is rare with approximately less than 2% of the world’s population having this personality type. On top of that, it’s even rarer for a woman to have this personality type, they say.

Sounds interesting. I’ve never heard of that personality type before. Linda, what makes you unique?

I was an only child and am a loner, completely happy on my little farm with my husband Jerry, Spunky Doodle, our old dog Tinker, and our 4 pet goats. My outlet is my writing. A far cry from the city girl I once was, but I love it.

Sounds like a fun-filled and interesting daily life. Diane B., what about you?

My weird sense of humor. I try to employ humor to dispel tension.

I think we all could use a little more humor in our lives! Paula, what makes you unique?

I have 14 grandchildren and 2 great grandkids.

I’m sure they all keep you very busy. Eve, why do you enjoy writing?

The world I write about is a special place, and it gives me great joy to introduce others to my special world.

Sounds great. I can’t wait for your special column in our first Kid’s Corner on April 28th when we all get to meet the characters in Barn Town! Linda, what about you?


It is the window to my soul. We have done many foreign mission trips and there are so many experiences that I have to share. We have traveled the world and if I can share a small part of our experiences through my writing then I feel I have succeeded. My goal is to describe those experiences in such a way the readers feel as if they were seeing what we did, enlighten others to see the wonderful people of other cultures, and what it was like interacting with them.

Wow, I’m sure you have many interesting stories and adventures to share. Paula, why do you enjoy writing?

I write my thoughts down and feel great when others enjoy what I write.

It is a great feeling. Diane, why do you enjoy writing?

To bring enjoyment to readers. I want them to go on an adventure with my characters and to find a satisfying ending.

Such a great reason. Carolyn, what about you?

I love creating something that I can share with others. I love inspiring others.

I agree with those sentiments. I love to inspire others as well!
