American Spark Interview for Letters from the J Underground

Version 2My very first interview for the hardest book I’ve ever written is here! What a joy May-Lily Lee is! She is a fantastic interviewer. I was so grateful to sit down with her recently at a studio here in Richmond to discuss Letters from the J Underground. The release date is set for early September. Check out the podcast on American Spark!

A big shout out goes to my mighty companion, Kim Severin, who began this project. It turns out she had a whole separate book in her, Making the Turn, which will be out later this year. Kim was my guiding light from the very start and she encouraged me to do this book. My dear friend, Nathaniel Mason, who is a brilliant and talented man (now in the doctoral program at William and Mary) gave me the prayerful support and guidance, too. He will write many books in his life that will assist many people. I am positive of that!

Most importantly, gratitude for my wife, Heather Campbell, who has become my “eyes”. As I’ve struggled with physical vision loss, Heather has put on every hat possible when it comes to assisting me in getting this book out there. Heather has believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. She is an amazing woman, an amazing editor, and an amazing artist. Her support and dedication to me has brought me the most confidence and peace in the true messages I reveal in this book to the world.

All my love,

    • Hey, Laura…great to hear from you, my friend. Apologize for the delay in responding…takes my pesky eyes a while to respond. I hope you are doing well! Thanks, as always for your support. You were one of the very first readers of mine to reach out. I will always remember how good that made me feel. Many blessings to you! Ruth
