Most authors I interview are from the USA; however, thanks to the internet and Amazon, we have easy access to great fiction from all over the world.

Dianne J. Wilson, from South Africa, was kind enough to grant me an interview regarding the first book in her Spirit Walker Young Adult series, Affinity. Read on to learn more about this author and her books.

Affinity book cover

Kai was born with the ability to see brokenness and to fix it. But when a freak accident leaves him trapped in the spiritual realm, he discovers a sinister side to being gifted—much darker than he’d ever imagined. With Affinity Recruiters hunting him down, Kai has to learn how to stay alive, use his gift to save his friends, and stop the flood of evil threatening the world. Can he do it before time runs out?


How did you get the idea for your book?

There’s a verse in the Bible that goes (and I quote loosely), “Whatever is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” That got me thinking about the reality of the spiritual realm:

  • What would a Believer look like in the spiritual realm?
  • How about someone who doesn’t yet know God?
  • What happens in the spiritual realm when we pray for someone?

Those questions led to the Spirit Walker trilogy.

What is the main theme or lesson of your story?

As they get caught up in the wild ride of this series, I’d love my readers to realize that they have been given gifts, talents and access to our Heavenly Father for a very clear mission—to have influence in the spiritual realm for eternity.

Does your story have a unique setting?

My story swings between the everyday world that we know so well and the spiritual realm, where the usual laws of physics that we live bound by don’t apply.

Where can readers find your book?

About Dianne J. Wilson

Dianne J Wilson portrait

Dianne J. Wilson writes across genres including YA Fantasy and Romantic Suspense. Weaving Invisible into words, she explores spiritual truth woven through ordinary life with equal dashes of breathless adventure and tongue-in-cheek humor, all soaked in God’s Grace.

She writes in stolen moments, usually in the back seat of her tiny car. Her home is in East London, a South African coastal town, where she lives with her hubby and three daughters who all take turns at being home. Her love-language is tea and taking long drives to listen to new songs with her girls.

When she’s not stuck in her car writing, you can find her feeding all the hungry people in her house who gaze at her expectantly around mealtimes. Find out more at Dianne J. Wilson’s website.
