Eva Marie:  Awesome. What are you working on book-wise now?

Lisa Samson:  Right now I'm working on a book entitled "Travels With My Uncle." Its main character is from "The Church Ladies," the character named India who was kind of Goth and drove around in a Beetle painted like a ladybug. I'm enjoying this one more than some of them! Some books it's like pulling teeth! Although I will tell you that, I threw out the first 60 pages of this book and started fresh.

Eva Marie:  When will it be out?

Lisa Samson:  Next June, Lord willin' and the creek don't rise!

Eva Marie:  Until then, what's happening?

Lisa Samson: Just first drafting right now, getting settled in Lexington (we moved last week), and working on curriculum for the Montrose Christian Writers Conference this year where I'll be doing the fiction track. I'm not a good speaker really, but I do want to help people mature in their craft.

Eva Marie:  Ah! You'll be following in my footsteps, then! (laughing) I did the fiction track last year!

Lisa Samson:  Very cool!
