Before we begin this interview, we would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to Pat G’Orge-Walker and others affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Please NOTE the contest at the bottom of this interview. You could win a copy of Holy Mayhem by Pat G’Orge -Walker.
Pat, describe yourself for our visitors.
I would say that I am someone who has gone through tremendous adversities. They have included rape, incest, blindness, a terrible fire, several operations and cancer. I, therefore, believe that I am a blessed Child of God. God has shielded the Devils arrows and replaced them with the gift of laughter and healing in my life.
How do you find time to connect with God?
I’m one who constantly chats with the Lord. It doesn’t matter if I’m taking a shower, writing, driving, idle or busy. I love staying connected to the throne.
Do you have a favorite bible verse and or quote you wish to share?
My favorite bible verse is 2nd Chronicles 7:14. “If my people who are called by my name would humble themselves, pray and turn from their wicked ways…”
Tell us about your current book, Holy Mayhem.
Two church-ladies-turned-sleuths are sure to raise more than a little hell when they decide to make crime-solving miracles. They haven’t a clue. But they’ve got more than enough faith…
FULL SYNOPSIS – They’d been laid off, they’re broke, and their faith is really being tried. But dedicated Mount Kneel Down Church members Patience Kash and Joy Karry figure now is the perfect time to pursue their other true calling–becoming private detectives. And if that means putting up with their thug-wannabe cousin Porky’s delusions while hilariously interfering with their famous detective godson Percy’s investigations, it’s still a heaven-sent opportunity to hear all the town dirt and find customers…
When a thief steals the prized family Bible right out from under Porky’s nose and church funds are missing on Patience’s watch, these sisters-in-God find themselves sleuthing out the strangest family and church secrets–and up against someone more than ready to send them to their heavenly reward. Now, they’ll need their most inspired hunches, their not-real-fierce dog Felony, and their license-to-missionary to uncover the truth and crack this holy case…
They don’t have a clue but they’ve got plenty of faith!!!
What influenced you to write this book?
Several influences: the political climate of today. The prospect of getting a second chance to do what you really love if lay off. And what could possibly go wrong when a prophecy is taken out of context, by of all folks; church folks.
What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?
I want the reader to take away that the power of prayer, faith and ones perceived reality differs from God’s. I want the reader to understand that all they have NOT done is just as real as all that they HAVE. Faith is what pleases God. Obedience will always be better than sacrifice. The characters in my book find this out as they travel several very different paths
Are you available for speaking engagements?
