Author Interview – Edward Mrkvicka

7:00 AM Posted by James Noel No comments

Tell us a bit about your family. I live in a small rural town in NW Illinois with my son, Eddie, my daughter, Kelly, our dog, Gus, and our cat, Puddin’.

What is your favorite quality about yourself? I am a practicing Christian.

What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why? “Evil only triumphs when good men say and do nothing”(Sir Edmund Burke), which has as its genesis Ephesians 5:11 in the Bible – “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose [them].” Burke was so right, as is witnessed by today’s events.

What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life? Raising my two children who have become humble followers of Christ. They are loved and respected by everyone who knows them.

What is your favorite color? Royal purple.

What’s your favorite place in the entire world? Our house.

How has your upbringing influenced your writing? I was raised in a Christian household by Christian parents and as such I became a Christian writer. “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? When I was about 8 years old I was given a small toy printing press for Christmas. I put together a weekly “newspaper” for the neighborhood. The whole experience was right out of “Leave It To Beaver.” From that point on I loved to write, and the feeling has never left me.

When and why did you begin writing? Professionally since 1982. I had retired from banking, which finally gave me time to write as I had always wanted to.
