Author Interview – Edward Mrkvicka

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.

How long have you been writing? All my life, but, as I said, I started writing professionally in 1982.

When did you first know you could be a writer? When I was about 8 years old.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? I can honestly say no – it only takes me about a month to actually write a book, because by the time I start typing it’s already completely written in my head. Put another way, the knowledge it requires to write a book worth reading most often takes a lifetime. Typing, not so much.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? The Sin of Forgiveness explains how today’s forgiveness is far removed from the forgiveness described in the Bible. It reveals the harm caused by secular forgiveness, and shows how and why true Christian forgiveness can right the wrong(s) and make all involved whole again.

How did you come up with the title? I prayed for a title that would please God and one was given to me.

Who designed the cover? The design staff at Crosslink Publishing.

What do you do to unwind and relax? I write. When I’m not writing I’m spending time with my son and daughter.

What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing? I’ve been a Christian lay minister and counselor my whole adult life. So I have been blessed to personally see God’s Word help many people. But when I write, I get letters from all over the world from people who have been helped by my writing. Point being, writing has helped spread my ministry in a way I would not have thought possible.
