4:30 PM Posted by James Noel , No comments

What’s your weakest character trait?

Trying to fit in.

Why do you write?

I write because I love story, because I love words and because I love baring down to the minimum number of them it takes to achieve maximum impact.

Have you always enjoyed writing?

I wrote my first story, my version of ‘Hansel and Gretel’, on the back of a school report, aged 6. I still have it: But it did not go cwit the way they had inspecte. The birds et all the crums up.

What motivates you to write?

Having a well-planned outline that excites me.

What writing are you most proud of?

Down the years I’ve had short stories and articles published, I’ve edited a magazine (on investing in France, for the French government), I’ve won prizes and had plays produced but nothing beats the thrill of seeing my faith testimony, ‘She Does Not Fear the Snow’, in print:

What are you most proud of in your personal life?

My husband, kids and grandkids.

What books did you love growing up?

I was a pony freak and loved Ruby Ferguson’s ‘Jill’ books. I also loved ballet, so Noel Streatfeild’s ‘Shoes’ books were another fave. I graduated from these straight to Agatha Christie and Daphne Du Maurier, whom I still love.

Who is your favorite author?

Daphne Du Maurier

She Does Not Fear the Snow

Bobbie Ann Cole’s inspirational memoir charts her personal journey to faith and redemption. Broken by cancer and the failure of her marriage, she visits Israel, seeking direction and new meaning for her life. She has a profound spiritual experience in a Jerusalem church, where, as a Jew, she’s not supposed to be. Her experience there marks the start of a chain of supernatural events, through which God reveals His purposes to her. This transformational story of love, set on three continents, echoes that of biblical Ruth, who accepts faith in the Land of Israel and receives God’s blessing in the shape of a new husband of faith, a Canadian.

‘Filled with humor, warmth and love, She Does Not Fear the Snow is the promise of love after a battle with cancer and the sting of divorce. Bobbie Ann Cole has written an honest, touching memoir which permits the reader to accompany her through a time of healing, self-discovery and faith. Bobbie's transparency makes it hard to put down. A great read for those healing from their own journey. You will find encouragement here.’ Kim de Blecourt, Author of Until We All Come Home: A Harrowing Journey, a Mother's Courage, a Race to Freedom (FaithWords, November, 2012)

‘This book will inspire you to look for God's voice in everyday events of life. It will cause you to reflect on past experiences and see how God's hand led you in the right path. It's a beautiful story full of romance, forgiveness and coming to faith.’ Evangeline Inman, Author of The Divine Heartmender and Extreme Worship for Songwriters

‘Bobbie’s story greatly encourages us that life is not to be lived or viewed through the lens of chance. Open your heart as you read, and embrace the personal truth that God in His providence will direct our steps and bring us to our destiny.’ Pastor Wayne Flowers, Smythe Street Cathedral, Fredericton, NB, Canada
