Author Interview with Lillian K Duncan
This week we welcome Lillian K Duncan to our author interview page! She’s the author of The Puzzle house. Lillian, thank you so much for taking the time to letting my audience get to know you!
What four words best describe you?
Lillian: Christian—wife—writer—and short (very short).
What writing book would you suggest to a new author?
Lillian: There’s so many to choose from and I’m sure I’m not very up-to-date on recent publications but…that won’t stop me from sharing a few of the “old” ones that have helped me.
Anything by James Scott Bell. I always learn something valuable when I read or reread his books. If you have a chance to go to an in-person workshop—even better!
I also love the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Writing Christian Fiction.
How long have you been writing?
Lillian: I started writing when I was 40…22 years ago. It was practically the stone-age of writing and publishing. I would have to send out queries with a stamp and then wait… and then send out sample chapters and a book proposal and then wait… and then send out the full manuscript and then wait…
It’s wonderful to be in a new era of publishing and writing!
Who are your favorite authors?
Lillian: I love reading Teri Blackstock and Brandilynn Collins books! I haven’t read a book of theirs that I haven’t enjoyed!

Where to find Lillian
Life isn’t a box of candy—it’s a puzzle!
Rachel Summers is all about Rachel Summers…until the day she crashes headlong into a semi-truck. As her life hangs in the balance, she has a visitor who asks a very simple question.
Does she want to be healed or to be a healer? She makes her choice, but the journey doesn’t go quite the way she expected.
And so Rachel now runs Puzzle House. Every guest is different and yet the same. They all come to the Puzzle House for one reason and one reason only—to be healed, usually from a life-threatening illness. Sometimes they receive their miracle, and sometimes they discover there’s more than one kind of healing.
Nia is a fifteen-year-old African-American girl who is dying. The doctors have told her there is nothing else to be done. No more treatments. No more hope. No more life. And she’s angry about that. Very angry. Against her wishes, Nia’s aunt brings her to The Puzzle House.
Together, Nia and Rachel will take a journey that will change both their lives.
