Anna Grace Release Tour

I’m so excited to be part of the release tour for Across All Borders by Anna Grace, hosted by Jen’s Author Assistance! In this post, I will be interviewing author Anna Grace. We’ll be talking about the inspiration behind her book, how faith affects her writing, and more.

Hoping. Planning. Waiting.

Everything in her life is wrapped up in the thought of this new sister, coming from so far away. Will the day ever arrive? And if it does, will it be everything they dreamed? In this short poetic narrative, follow along on a young girl’s journey as she discovers the true meaning of love, family, and sisterhood.



What inspired you to write this book?

Three of my siblings are adopted, so I think that says a lot. The story told in Across All Borders is inspired by my memories of my sister’s adoption, but there are elements of all three of my siblings’ adoptions woven in there, as well as some fictional parts.

Who or what inspired you to write?

I would say the authors I have loved to read!  Additionally, I am a member of the Young Writer’s Workshop, so the instructors and authors on there have been a huge help. Ava Rose Scott, who wrote For All of Them Lost, was really helpful in answering questions I had at the beginning of my working on Across All Borders.

What is the biggest thing you've learned through your writing journey?

God has taught me a lot about Himself, especially in helping me understand what it looks like for Him to be the ultimate Author, both of the universe and of my life.  One recent example He has given me is the image of how much I love and care about my fictional characters, and then viewing that in light of how much He cares for us. 

How has being a Christian affected the way you write vs. the way you used to or probably would otherwise?

I’ve been a Christian since before I started writing, so I can’t do a direct comparison. My faith is a theme woven into pretty much every story I write, so that would definitely be different if I didn’t have that in my own life.

What do you want to accomplish with your writing?

Some of it depends on the project. For Across All Borders specifically, a few different things come to mind. If an adoptive family reads it, I hope they can be reminded of just how beautiful and special adoption is. Especially for the siblings of adopted children, I think this story is one they can relate to, and I hope it can help them realize that they are going to go through the same struggles that any siblings experience. But for a broader audience, this book is for the Church as a whole. Adoption is such a biblical concept, and I think that’s something the modern church has often forgotten. It’s such a practical example of the gospel, and it’s a command repeated throughout the Bible, so I hope that maybe this book can bring awareness to the importance of adoption, especially within the church.

How do you define success, and do you think you've reached it yet?

That’s a great question, and something I’ve rather avoided thinking about. I honestly don’t think I will ever reach complete success, but I also don’t think I need to. God has shown me that’s not the standard that needs to define me.
