Author Spotlight: Molly Noble Bull

I love reviewing books that I’ve read. There’s something about sharing a good story with others who will appreciate it. Maybe that’s part of why I love to write too!

And having a blog dedicated to faith and  all things books, I also have the opportunity to speak with other authors who have the same desire to share their stories with readers and do so in an uplifting way. Today is one of those days when I have the pleasure of introducing you to an author that might be as new to you as she is to me. Let’s find out together a little more about Molly Noble Bull.

Authors have a distinct way they write. What can readers expect when they pick up a story by Molly Noble Bull? 

I try to begin all my books with a reader hook, and Bluebonnet Bride has one. Here is my first line. “She’d had another of those horrible flashbacks straight from her teenage years.”

I have to admit, it makes me wonder what happened to her as a young girl to cause horrible flashbacks. Next question. Is there a verse or person from scripture you gain inspiration from in your life as an author?

Many scriptures inspire me, and I try to post at least one Bible scripture a day at my page on Facebook. In fact, I have been doing that since August 2017. I also post a scripture at the beginning of every novel I write. The scripture verse for Bluebonnet Bride had to do with forgiveness, and forgiveness is the theme of the entire novel.

Since 2017. I wonder how many people have been encouraged or challenged to growth through reading your daily posts. You mentioned Bluebonnet Bride, so let’s talk about that for a moment. Which character from that book was your favorite to write and why?

Gina Hollister, the heroine of Bluebonnet Bride, is a dyslexic with a PhD, and her struggles are also mine. Though I was never tested, I think I am dyslexic, too. I had a hard time learning to read and spell, and now I write novels that other people read. Some of them win contests for published authors. God is good.

Yes, He is. With a title like Bluebonnet Bride, I have to ask. Are Bluebonnets your favorite flower?

The bluebonnet is a wild flower as well as the state flower of Texas, and I am a native Texan. I would have to say that many if not most Texans love bluebonnets. I know I do, but if I had a favorite flower, it would probably be a rose.

Roses are a classic. Nothing wrong with that. Is there a hint of real life in your story? And along with that, where did your inspiration come from for Bluebonnet Bride?

Yes and no. My husband is not a billionaire; we don’t live in a castle-like mansion, and I am not a PhD. But as I said, I had a hard time learning to read. Gina’s problems in that area are/were very much my own. My inspiration came from my heart and my memories of earlier times—times when I actually thought I might be a little on the “stupid” side.

What do you hope readers will take away from this story?

I hope they will learn more about what Christians are truly like and enjoy the story at the same time.

Before we finish our interview, let’s move back to you. What is one interesting fact about you that readers may not know?

My father and my maternal grandfather were cattle ranch foremen—real Texas cowboys. I spent part of my growing up years on a sixty thousand acre cattle ranch in South Texas, and all of our grown sons are Texas cowboys today. And yes. Some of my novels are Christian westerns.

Molly, I want to thank you for allowing me to interview you today. Readers, if you have a question for Molly, please leave it in the comments. I know she would enjoy hearing from you.

Billionaire Steve Bryson doesn’t like Bible thumpers, and he thinks Dr. Gina Hollister is one.
