An Interview With Mary Baird

Mary Baird is one of those kind of women who is so humble and so sweet that it makes you wonder if she's real. Through numerous trials, she was determined to fulfill God's calling on her life: writing! And she does poetry like nobody's business. I present to you Mary Baird.

Q: Tell us a bit about who you are as an author.

A: I am so in love with the Lord, I can hardly sit still. He is awesome! He asked me to write for Him back in April of 2007. I had never thought I would write again. I used to write in 2003, but was so discouraged by people and things that I quit.

Q: How many books do you have in print?

A: Right now I have one, His Reflections, a poetry journal.

Q: What was your inspiration behind your latest book?

A: Always, my Lord. He is the reason I am anything.

Q: How long did it take for you to find a publisher? Who was it?

A: Not very long to find one. The Lord led me right to Living Waters Publishing Company and I am blessed to have them on my team.

Q: Do you have any other books in the making? Have you begun to submit it to publishers yet?

A: Another poetry journal. I pray it will be out after I see how the first one goes.

Q: Were there any writers/authors you were inspired by? If so, who?

A: God is my inspiration and all I write comes from my heart. It wouldn't be real for me any other way.

Q: What is your favorite book?

A: Bible, hands down, and Hinds Feet on High Places

Q: Please, give our writers some advice.

A: Always pray and seek the Lord on each thing you write. Let Him be in the center, and create, inspire, and empower you. Words flow so easy when He is in control. Never fail to have praise and worship music going to invite Him in. Perservere in all things! Keep going even if it looks like delays and detours abound. Finally, give your all to God. He will make a way through the "wilderness" of writers' block! LOL!
