Author Spotlight on Radio Host Coretha Gantling

Coreetha Gantling-affectionately known as Sister G.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Gantling just when COVID restrictions were relaxed enough for restaurants to open. Before having dinner together, my daughter and I decided to first explore a nearby park. We noticed Sister G., and her friend sitting on a bench talking. When we walked by, they greeted us. But before we could move on, Sister G, asked if they could pray for my daughter and I. They did. It was miraculous… the rest is history.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

Probably about 20 years ago.

How long does it take you to write a book?

Timelines differ for each project. However, I wrote a skit for a girl’s group called The Holy Ghost Girls I mentored. The skit was called The Diary of an unwed Mother. Ten years later, I was inspired to write the book with that title. This is example of the process of how one of my projects became a book.

What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

Although I’m retired from teaching school, I haven’t retired from teaching God’s word. I host 3 radio shows teaching the bible. Therefore, I have to carefully organize and manage my time.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I type with one finger as I am led by the spirit of God to write.
