Tell us a bit about yourself, Naomi.
My life is a little different from many others . . . I went back to school when I was in my 40's to finish my education. Then I began writing. At the moment, I am working full-time, but I'm hoping within a few years, to be in a position to devote more time to my writing career. I would also enjoy spending more time attending workshops and writer conferences. I enjoy traveling with my family, singing inspirational/gospel music, taking daily walks, and reading -- I read a lot!

Please give a jacket blurb of Blueberry Cupcake Mystery.
In the small town of Abbott Creek, mystery is as much a part of daily life as The Sweet Shop's sugar cookies.
Katie Chupp spends her days at The Sweet Shop, taking care of customers and baking delicious treats . . . not exactly a profession where one expects to be thrown into the midst of mysteries and mayhem.
But when the bakery is broken into, someone has to find the thief . . . besides finding another place to do the baking and get the orders to the customers.
Is this a random theft, or is the thief trying to ruin the town's Independence Day celebration?
And watch for book 2 - Christmas Cookie Mystery - COMING SOON!
Tell us a few things about yourself some folks may not know.
I have diabetes, so I have to count my carbs and exercise daily. I only need six hours of sleep . . . if I get less, I feel exhausted; if I get more, I wake tired, with a headache. My granddaughter and I wear the same size shoe. I've never owned my own home; I'm saving for one now and hope to buy one before I retire.
What other writing have you done?
Almost thirty years ago, I began a novel. I was newly divorced, with two small children, and put it away. Someday I hope to work on it again.
What was your inspiration for Blueberry Cupcake Mystery?
Honestly, my inspiration came from books written to make Amish young people look weak and easily manipulated, or worldly. I felt God guiding me to write a series of books that show inspiration, love, faith, and good works.
Wonderful, Naomi! What do you hope your readers will take away from reading Blueberry Cupcake Mystery?
I hope readers pick up this book (or any future books in the series) when they need something to distract them from sadness, worry, and doubt. I hope reading a light-hearted, fun cozy mystery, will inspire readers and leave them feeling happy and content.
What parting wisdom do you wish to give those not yet published?
If you enjoy writing, don't stop. Even though you aren't published, keep writing . . . attend local workshops and conferences for writers/authors and learn as much as you can about writing, editing, and how to submit your work to agents.
Great advice! Thank you, Naomi Miller, for joining me here today.
Until next time . . . read Naomi’s book Blueberry Cupcake Mystery.
