From the Author

(Author McMillian Moody was interviewed by Pete Wilson for his blog Withoutwax. Here's an excerpt):
Pete: What made you want to write this book?
McMillian: Having spent a large portion of my adult life as a church staff member I wanted to canonize some of the more humorous episodes from my "days of the cloth." I chose to make it a novel so I could, using artistic license, vamp off the real stories making them a bit more colorful. I also reasoned that by taking the fiction route I could greatly decrease the chance of a disgruntled church member waiting for me at my car with hatchet in hand.
Pete: I know you've spent a lot of time on church staff. Is the book in any way based on real life characters or experiences from your past?
McMillian: I like saying that my book was "inspired" by my own personal experiences, those of my friends in ministry, and all of the wonderful and oft-time quirky people we ministered to. Real life is always funnier than anything we can contrive, and life is funniest when it catches us off guard, surprises us, or breaks us out of our ordinary routines. This seems to happen a lot in church work.
