“You’ve been talking about your relationship with Kevin, and I understand your struggle, but what have you been talking to Jesus about lately?”
Porch bit her lower lip for a moment, a sign Ms. V. had come to understand as Porcha’s way of considering whether or not to exaggerate the truth.
“I can’t help you if you don’t tell me the truth.” Ms. V. reminded her softly.
Porcha let out a deep breath.
“I haven’t really been talking to Jesus. I mean. I say my prayers in the morning and before I go to sleep, but He’s gone quiet. I don’t hear Him like I used to.” Porcha’s sniffles turned back into sobs.
“Sshh, honey calm down. Why does this make you cry so hard?”
“I think He’s left me. It used to be so easy to talk to Him.”
“Ahh. No. God has promised never to leave us nor forsake us, and He has yet to break any of His promises. I am absolutely sure He wouldn’t begin with you, especially if you’ve been wanting to talk to Him.”
“Then why can’t I hear Him?” Porcha asked in a near whine.

this book have a special meaning to you? i.e. where you found the idea, its
symbolism, its meaning, who you dedicated it to, what made you want to write it?
Warrior has special meaning to me because it is the first book I’ve co-written.
The idea wasn’t hard to find since D. Tina Batten and I both have experience
with intercessory prayer and spiritual warfare. Of course, there were
dramatizations and scenes added for entertainment but we both believe the prayer
do you get your storylines from?
the main character that came to both of us pretty naturally, the environment
and secondary characters came after a lot of discussion and a list we checked
off because there were too many people and scenarios for just one book.
this book easier or more difficult to write than others? Why?
D. Tina Batten: This book
was challenging. Working with my co-author Traci helped ease the pain because
we were able to talk everything out. We wanted to make sure the reader would
have an incredible experience reading our book. I’m happy to say
that this book exceeded my expectations.
only write one genre?
D. Tina Batten: Yes,
normally. Christian Fiction. But for the most part the storylines may be a
fusion of drama, romance and just a hint of comedy. The Prayer Warrior is
Traci Wooden-Carlisle: Overall
I write Christian fiction. My subgenres are women’s fiction, romantic suspense,
contemporary romance and speculative fiction.
a picture of where you write, where you compose these words…is it Starbucks, a
den, a garden…we want to know your inner sanctum?
Wooden-Carlisle: I love the environment of the college town coffeehouse with
plenty of tables for food and studying. It is relatively quiet with free Wi-Fi
and a long list of beverage choices.
Livingroom is closed, my lap desk is open to all work that needs to be done.
finally, of course…was there any specific event or circumstance that made you
want to be a writer?
Wooden-Carlisle: When I was seven I was misdiagnosed with a reading disorder
that had me attending reading tutor sessions once a week after school. A year
later is was discovered that I had a sight issue but by then I was reading at
the 9th grade level. I became a voracious reader, trying to read
anything I could get my hands on. For me, punishment came in the way of no
trips to the library, so without anything to read, I would write stories to
myself. I still write the same way. A punster all the way.
