ABOUT AUTHOR: When N. J. Lindquist first sat down to write, she discovered that her writing voice was that of a teenage boy. Since she’d been teaching high school English and working with youth groups, it made sense.
And there were some things she wanted to say to teens. She’d noticed how influenced they could be by superficial things like appearance, wealth, and athletic ability. She kept thinking about 1 Samuel 16:7, which says, “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
N. J. realized that she wanted to illustrate that verse in a novel. She’d write about two boys—one who is very average and ordinary and one who is Mr. Everything. She almost finished the book, but—insert four active sons, homeschooling, two church-plants, three moves, and related things here... At last, now with pre-teen boys of her own, N. J. had even more reason to finish her book. And Moody Press published it.
N. J. worked on a sequel, and another one. A few years passed before she was able to finish them, update the first book, and republish it along with three sequels to make the Circle of Friends Series. But those were paperbacks, not ebooks. And while the storylines were still valid, they didn’t include texting and had some archaic terms.
So, a couple of years ago, N. J. set out to redo the four books. At last, having updated them, given them new covers, and tweaked their titles, N. J. is publishing them in both paper and ebook formats. The problem is that the reviews from the past, although valid, are out-of-date, so N. J. needs new readers and new reviews.
N. J. and her husband Les live northeast of Toronto, Ontario, near their four adult sons and close enough to babysit their grandkids.
