Bobbie Ann Cole

I am author of my faith memoir, "She Does Not Fear the Snow", an Amazon #1 bestseller and Munce 2012 Prize winner.
 
My latest book, "Love Triangles, Discovering Jesus the Jew in Today's Israel", released autumn 2015, has also become an Amazon #1 bestseller. It is the true story of my quest to follow the real Jesus of Nazareth in an Israel that resents and persecutes Messianic believers like me.

I speak and write widely on meeting Jesus in His everyday world to help Christians appreciate the rich Jewish symbolism that would have been obvious to His listeners and understand the challenges believer Jews have always faced, from Peter and Paul on down to the present day.

I am an experienced ghostwriter and content provider, offering a womb-to-tomb service, from idea through to publication.

I am also a qualified teacher of creative writing and author of the "Disciples Indeed Workbook" which takes you step by step through the course I have devised to share our faith stories with confidence. This is a fantastic tool for ministers and their flocks. 

Interview

1. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I have lived in many countries, including France, Germany, Ivory Coast and Israel. I currently divide my time between my native UK and Atlantic Canada, home of my husband. We recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary.
I have three grown-up children and three grandchildren, 2 girls, 10 and 8 and a boy, 5. I also enjoy my three step children and three step grandchildren.
My background is in business and journalism but writing has always been my true vocation. I have always been writing a book or planning a book. Yet She Does Not Fear the Snow is my first full-length publication.
 

2. Describe your book ‘She Does Not Fear the Snow’ in 30 words or less. 

A trail of miracles led me from a Jerusalem church where I wasn’t supposed to be to find love in Atlantic Canada.

 
3. What was the hardest part of writing your book? 

Stopping writing it.
 

4. What books have had the greatest influence on you?

For my memoir, Derek Prince’s work, ‘Appointment in Jerusalem.’ I am also a big fan of fiction writers Daphne du Maurier and Margaret Atwood. Both write stories filled with foreboding in painterly settings.

 
5. Briefly share with us what you do to market your book?

My launch hinged on three main events: a book signing at the local bible bookstore, leading an evening service of readings and testimonies at my church, and a 3-day free Kindle version promo. I did my best to create momentum for these events.  

 
6. How do you spend your time when you are not writing?

I love to walk and I enjoy good food, whether cooked by me or eaten out. I’m also very fond of horses and dogs,  though I presently own neither.  

 
7. What are you working on next?

I am well into my next book, a fictional story set in 1950. A girl of 14, who thinks she’s English, is tracked down by her real mother, a Holocaust survivor.
