I first heard Fran Fernandez speak at last year’s MCWC. Fran was attending this year’s conference and I had the chance to record this interview. She credits the Montrose Christian Writers Conference for the knowledge and inspiration to write and get her first book published: The Best Is Yet to Come: 60 Devotions. She gave me the ultimate gift, a signed copy of her book for my wife Judy. Thanks Fran! (Fran gets bonus points…her publisher, Zondervan, has made her book available in a Kindle version too.)
