Author Interview: Lucette Nel

I have fallen behind on my interviews, but I am back on track, and just in time for Christmas, I am here to introduce to you Lucette Nel, fabulous author of Historical Romances.

LucetteNelLucy Nel is a coffee addicted work-in-progress daughter of the Lord Almighty. She’s a mommy to a rambunctious toddler and wife to her best friend and real-life hero. Along with three spoiled Pugs, they make their home in Gauteng, the smallest of nine provinces in South Africa.

She works as a bookkeeper and uses every available second to create interesting characters in historical settings.

She’s a member of American Christian Fiction and her dream came true when she signed a contract with Pelican Book Group for her Christmas themed novella, The Widow’s Captive and now her upcoming release, A Match of Sorts.

Thank you so much for consenting to do this interview, Lucy. I know it is an incredibly busy time of year.

WC: So let’s get down to business. What is the hardest part about being an author?

LN: Oh wow. Finding time to write will be top of my list. Secondly, not to compare myself to another author. I’ve learned that there will always be someone more talented, funnier, with a story that readers will enjoy more.



WC: When it is time to sit down and write, what are your must haves?

LN: Coffee! I’m one of those people that drink coffee no matter the time of day or season!

WC: What are you reading now (or just finished)?

LN: I just finished rereading my all-time favorite Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. I actually reread it once a year.

WC: What is your favorite Bible verse?

LN: Philippians 4: 13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”


WC: Just for fun, if you you could be any animal, which animal would you be? Why?

LN: Do bears really hibernate for three months? I’m sleep deprived.

On the run with two small children and a third due within weeks, Adeline Spencer fears the approaching blizzard will seal their fate. An abandoned cabin is an answer to her prayers. She hopes it will shield them from both the storm and the enraged brother-in-law hot on her tail. But when a stranger knocks at the door, she is convinced they have been found by one of Ward’s lackeys.Blamed for the death of his friend, Sheriff Jonah Hale is determined to prove himself worthy of his badge, even if it means riding into a blizzard to check on a crazy miner. When Jonah reaches the cabin, he’s caught off guard by a pretty and very pregnant young woman wielding a skillet. Bound to a chair while the storm rages, and as Christmas settles in around them, he must find a way to earn Adeline’s trust…and perhaps her heart.

  1. I’d have to say my favorite Christmas gift I ever received happened in the year 1971. That was the year my parents broke down and bought me my first horse. Also, oddly enough, my first husband left me the Christmas of 1982. It was a blessing because I was set free from a lot of bondage as a result of that break up. I will always be grateful to God for the freedom He gave me that Christmas.

  2. When my hubby and I were engaged he bought me a bottle of perfume for Christmas. I was going to school full-time, working part-time, and barely getting by. With my torn, old blue jeans, junkie ’80’s Ford Tempo, and that bottle of perfume I actually felt pretty. LOL. That sure was a long time ago…

  3. Wyatt gave me a troll doll that sings “I’m Not Giving Up Today” and told me that when I am having a bad day I can push the button and feel better. Best present ever because he was so innocently sweet and thoughtful.
