Intimate Conversation with Keleigh Crigler Hadley
Keleigh Crigler Hadley is an author, speaker, and teacher who is thankful God can use her messes for His glory. If she were to define herself in one sentence, she would say, "I'm a girl who loves to see God working."
She has always loved stories, and she believes the story of the Bible contains the biggest, the most redemptive dose of grace humankind has ever, and will ever, experience. She is the Christian Fiction author of the Preacher's Kids series, Revenge Inc., and What You Won't Do for Love with Brown Girls Faith.
Keleigh writes soul-stirring fiction, with real characters that stay with readers long after they have closed the book, (or turned the e-reader off.) The only thing she loves more than writing is reading, so contact her on social media and let her know what you're reading!
BPM: What motivated you to sit down and actually start writing this book?
The life story and choices of two very different women with the same medical diagnosis - Kara Tippets and Brittany Maynard inspired What You Won't Do for Love.
BPM: What separates this story from the millions of other books on the shelves?
What You Won't Do for Love is fresh, original and unexpected in the Christian Fiction genre. Rhonda McKnight, Publishing Manager for the Brown Girls Faith brand, says that my writing voice is unique, (my mother always said I was a little different), so that uniqueness sets me apart. Here's more about What You Won't Do for Love:
Unconditional Love. Unthinkable Choice.
Eden Price, an unlucky-in-love nurse finds herself in the midst of a heated love triangle. Globe-trotting missionary, Gabe Clark ignites her soul. Who doesn't want a man with a connection to God? Hard-working, Nemo Gates speaks to her heart. His past has caused a rift between him and God and Eden wants to help him heal.
She ultimately chooses the man that makes her passions come alive, but did she make the right choice? Her husband stuns her with a desperate plea; to prove her love for him in the most unthinkable way - to help him die with dignity.
BPM: What would you like for readers to take away from your writing?
I want them to feel engrossed and entertained while reading, and when they close the book, feel as if they are closer to the Creator.
BPM: What topics are primarily discussed?
In What You Won't Do for Love, the crux of the story is euthanasia. Would you put your husband out of his misery if he asked you to. Do you love him that much?
