INTERVIEW | Holly Spence

Holly, describe yourself to our visitors.

I am a friend of God who is a wife, mother, friend, leader, professional, author, playwright, director, producer, conference speaker and facilitator. I am down to earth, straight shooter who is serious about her relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

How do you find time to connect with God?

I don’t find time. I make time. I can do nothing apart from Him and just as my natural body craves water, so my spirit needs to connect with God through prayer and the reading of His word.

Do you have a favorite bible verse and or quote you wish to share?

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me Philippians 4:13

Who are your favorite authors? Favorite books?

I do not have a favorite author; I have favorite books across genres. Spiritual Protocol Bishop Bernard Jordan, Control Issues by K Lynn Brown, Soul Series, by Sherri Lewis, The Color Purple by Alice Walker, James Patterson books, Covenant Heart Series by Bishop David Huskins, Favorite books?

Tell us about your journey to publication.

My journey to publishing lead me to start my own publication company and publish under my own label. After researching the various options of other vanity houses, I learned that I could publish and offer affordable services to others.

Tell us about your current book, Covenant of Lies: The Revealed Truth.

My current book is the second installment in a trilogy. It continues to follow the lives of the McFinley, Richardson and Taylor families revealing secrets and lies that have devastating effects upon the relationships within these families. I believe the series of books exposes real life issues and causes one to explore redemption and forgiveness.

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

It is a series that began with the first release “Covenant of Lies the Untold Truth”. It was actually birthed after writing my stage play, “STOP! You Are Killing ME.” I belong to Overflow Ministries Covenant Church and we do a lot in the Performing Arts. A production team member suggested that our next production be a drama. So I came up with the story line. It was intended to be a stage production, but I had already “pushed the envelope” with “STOP”. So to release it out of my mind, I decided it would be a book and it the first in a trilogy.

Did you have a favorite character(s)? Who and why?

I do not have a favorite character. Beverly Martinez is the character most of my readers “love” to “hate”.  I admire Shane’s faith and Stephanie McFinley’s strength

What’s next for you?

I have completed another stage production called “Dysfunction…It Does Affect Generations”. I would like to thank you for opportunity to interview with you today.
