An Interview with Jarm Del Boccio
Meet Jarm Del Boccio! Her name is pronounced Yarm, and her interview is On the Scene, on the blog button. Jarm lives in Chicago with her son, daughter, and husband. I wonder if she’s met Malayna Evans. They both live in the Windy City. If not, I think they should do lunch!
Jarm is a former teacher and librarian who’s traveled all over the world checking off destinations on her bucket list. She’s thankful for all the places she’s seen and the things she’s been able to do. I need to start a bucket list too!
This is Jarm’s cover. It’s gorgeous! She based it off her daughter’s photograph. Wouldn’t you love it if your mom did this?
The hook . . . can an Israelite captive torn away from her home, serve the man who destroyed it? That’s exactly what Miriam is asked to do. She is chosen to serve the wife of Naaman, you know the one from the Old Testament? This is like hearing the story behind the story, of how Miriam faces her captivity and her bitterness. She learns from the Heart Changer that she’s being prepared for a greater mission, one that will change Naaman’s heart and the course of history.
Confession – I’m reading THE HEART CHANGER and living Miriam’s journey with her. I’m on chapter 7, and I’m hooked! I’m also hoping it can help my own heart! I have trouble showing ‘it’ in stories. Here’s hoping THE HEART CHANGER will help my writing heart!
When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
