CIR: What inspired this book?
TROUTTE: God Whisperer is near and dear to my heart because it is so personal. I was blessed to be the mother of two amazingly wonderful boys who were born with different and super-rare, non-life-threatening challenges. My oldest was born with a rare eye-tracking condition that also played havoc with his balance. My youngest had perfect eyes but was born with an incomplete, deaf ear. No hole! When the surgeons at UCLA created an eardrum and canal and he was able to hear with both ears for the first time in his life, I wept with joy. The miracle was overwhelming.
CIR: Do your or your children show up in the characters?
TROUTTE: While the book is pure fiction—the mother is not me, David is not my son, and I am happily married—there is a river of truth flowing through the pages. The worry a parent faces when her child is born with disabilities can be crushing. God Whisperer comes from being in that place when a mother realizes she is not good enough, strong enough, or smart enough to face the challenges ahead for her child. I think all parents feel this way to some degree, don't we?
CIR: In what way do you hope readers will come away different after reading this?
TROUTTE: It's an inspirational suspense filled with great characters and a storyline that gives the reader good warm fuzzies. This story is about love, plain and simple. The kind parents feel for their son, romantic love, and love for mankind. I hope readers realize that we are all important. Even a small child can change the world.
CIR: What would you compare this book to?
TROUTTE: It’s a little bit like the movie Pay it Forward in that the little boy is the one who changes the community.
CIR: What makes God Whisperer unique?
TROUTTE: Well, it is a story about a boy who can hear God. I haven’t seen too many of those. But I believe I wove a great mystery and romantic suspense in there too. You might be surprised by a few of the twists.
