Q & A with Keleigh
Tell our readers about What You Won’t Do For Love
Gladly! What You Won’t Do For Love is the story about how love forces us to make difficult choices. Eden Price has finds herself in the midst of a heated love triangle. One man connects with her soul and the other with her heart. She chooses one, (it would spoil the fun if I told you which one), but the honeymoon period is cut short, because he falls deathly ill and asks her to him out of his misery.
You have a beautiful cover, how does it relate to your book?
Thank you! The heart of the book is the love triangle. Which guy will Eden Price choose? Gabe Clark, the missionary or Nehemiah Gates, the high school friend?
Tell us about Eden Price.
Eden Price is a woman I would be friends with. She has a dry wit and a quirky personality. My favorite trait is her obsession with chocolate! She’s a nurse and loves her job – it’s her passion. Eden hit a rough patch in her love life, but because of her strong faith in God and her ability to see the positive side of things, she makes it through.
Tell us about Gabe Clark
My beta readers fell in love with Gabe! He is a missionary with the group Doctors Without Boarders. He is the kind of man that is never slow to action – faith without works is dead to him! But, he’s not perfect. He’s a true work-a-holic and doesn’t have much patience with people who don’t talk the talk and walk the walk.
Which character was the hardest to write?
Eden’s mother, Marlene was the hardest to write, because she had dementia and I wanted to show a true depiction of the disease.
This is a Christian Fiction book, will you write in other genres?
I can confidently say, no. Christian Fiction is in my blood, spirit and soul. Nothing else will come out of me.
Who is Keleigh Crigler Hadley?
I’m a girl who loves to see God work. When I’m not writing and working, I’m running around with my two children, who are my pride and joy.
Where does your passion come from to write God fearing books?
“But his word was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones…” My passion must come from God alone. He deposits the plots, characters and words. He makes me write until their stories are told.
What should readers expect from Keleigh Crigler Hadley in the next five years?
I had a Christmas novella coming in November called, The Million Dollar Christmas Kiss. And then in March/April a full length novel, The Reluctant Mistress. Working on four more projects as well. I will be busy for the next five years!
