After the Rain
By Vanessa Miller
Crystal: Today I am excited to have Vanessa Miller here. Welcome Vanessa! Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today?
Vanessa: I have been writing since I was a child. I always knew that I would be a writer. However, I never imagined that I would be writing Christian fiction because when I started writing there weren’t many Christian novels out.
But after becoming a Christian, I kept seeking God about ways in which I could serve Him. That was when I realized that the gift of Writing God had given me could be used to serve him… and I haven’t looked back.
Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?
Vanessa: My favorite part of the book is when Nina and Isaac are reminiscing about the love they have for one another, and then finally get on one-accord for the vision that God has for their lives.
Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for After the Rain?
Vanessa: After the Rain is the 7th book in the Rain Series. In this book I show the growth these characters have experienced throughout the years. They now have a very successful ministry and a beautiful home in the suburbs. But God uses their youngest son to show Isaac and Nina Walker that they have forgotten their first love… that’s when the drama begins for this family.
Crystal: What are you currently working on?
Vanessa: Right now I am finishing up the sequel to After the Rain, titled: RAIN In The Promise Land. It will be available mid-May for readers.
Crystal: Do you have any special routine that you follow when you are writing?
Vanessa: No, special routine, I just get up every morning and start writing. I pray a lot, especially when I writing a difficult part and I really need guidance for how to bring my character out.
Crystal: Did you have to do a lot of research for this book or any other?
Vanessa: No, this book is the 7th in the Rain Series. I know the characters like I know the back of my hand. Writing Nina and Isaac Walker’s stories never seems like work… I have too much fun with it.
Crystal: Who are some of your favorite authors that you like to read?
Vanessa: I read Michelle Stimpson, Pat Simmons, Francine Rivers, Rhonda, McKnight and a host of other authors as well. I just love books!
Crystal: Is there a genre you haven't written that you would like to try?
Vanessa: I write Christian fiction, and I can’t imagine myself writing anything else. I love the stories that I create with God right in the midst of the conflict, helping my characters to see the truth based on the Word of God. What could be better than that?
About The Book:

Nina and Isaac raised their youngest son, Isaac Walker Junior (Ikee) as far away from the hood and drug life as they could get him. But the sins of the father were too strong and too deadly for the son to avoid. Once Ikee leaves the church to become a gang banger Isaac is pulled back into a life he left behind so long ago… and only God knows how this nightmare will end.
