Alison Stanley – Insight

Rather than ask Alison for a standard interview, I asked her if she would share part of her life with us, either how she met her partner, how she came to know the Lord, or something interesting from her family heritage. Alison has chosen to tell us how she met her husband.

Best of Friends

AlisonStanleyI first met my husband Josh on a youth group camp when we were both 13 years old. I don’t remember much about that because, unfortunately, I had a crush on his friend at the time. Fast forward five years and we met again at the Campus Bible Ministries group at University.

We were acquaintances for a couple of years, attending a few camps and missions together, then one day I was chatting to a friend online and she let it slip that Josh liked me. I was so surprised—he was the kind of guy I used to watch from a distance, but never thought I’d have a chance with. He was a strong Christian, sporty, funny and handsome—I wondered if there would be any sparks between us.

I found his email address and made first contact. We emailed back and forth for a month, sharing what was happening in our lives. It was the highlight of my morning, opening my emails and finding one sitting there from him. After emailing each other for a month, we went on our first date to the movies on his birthday (lucky it went well!). He was so easy to talk to, and we’ve been best friends ever since.

That was a very sweet story, Alison. Last week I reviewed Trust Me Twice, which can be read here. Tell us Alison, what are you working on now?

I am working on the next novel in the Oakley series. Here is what I can tell you about it so far…

Is it possible to find true love twice? When, at the age of 30, Karen Wilson loses the love of her life to a tragic car accident, she can’t imagine ever falling in love again. Two years later, with God’s help, Karen is finally ready to move on her life, but when a guy four years younger than her starts showing interest, will she accept his advances? Meanwhile, Karen’s grief and loss website is gathering many fans, including an intriguing single man, who Karen immediately connects with. As events take a sinister turn, she must work out which man to trust before it’s too late.

Wow, Alison, that sounds very intriguing. I’m looking forward to reading it. Thanks for joining me on my blog!
