Featured Author Interview: Colleen Coble

Colleen Coble is an American Christian author of romance, romantic suspense and historical fiction. She is also CEO of American Christian Fiction Writers. 

Colleen's thirty-five novels and novellas have sold a total of about 2 million copies, and have received numerous awards, including the Romance Writers of America prestigious RITA, the Holt Medallion, the ACFW Book of the Year, the Daphne du Maurier, National Readers’ Choice, the Booksellers Best, and the 2009 Best Books of Indiana-Fiction award.
