Interview with I.M. Free, author of I Don't Have Time

Title: I Don't Have Time
Author: I.M. Free
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Biography
Format: Ebook

When she was in her early thirties, the author realized something was guiding her. Suddenly, a whole new world opened up.

She had never considered herself an atheist, but she had always questioned the stories in the Bible as she thought it was impossible for anyone or anything to have so much power.

But through her own experiences, she learned something really does have that much power. She became one of the few people throughout time who began communicating directly with God.
Sometimes when the author awakens, she knows something she didn’t know before she fell asleep. She feels things she wasn’t aware of before. This is how God protects her and prepares her for life.

I Don’t Have Time is the story of how God found the author and how she realized that while some people live as though they won’t face consequences for their actions, they could not be more wrong. Even if they don’t pay the price in this lifetime, they will in the next.


How did you come up with the title of your book?

For many years my life consisted of trying to raise my girls, keep up my home, cook meals, pay bills, attend my daughter’s ball games, and care for several ill family members.  Often I felt I didn’t have time to think about anything beyond my present life. In retrospect, I wish I had chosen a different title.
What is your writing environment like?
When I wrote my manuscript, I was on my enclosed back porch, which is very quiet, peaceful, and private.
What are some of the best tools available today for writers?
My only tool was following my conscience.  For me it was a matter of listening to the voice in my head.
What inspires you to write?
The first time I wrote anything was after the deaths of my sister, and parents.  I wrote in order to release the pain I was feeling. Putting the hurt down on paper helped me to deal with my emotions and get the hurt out of my head.  Not wanting to ever recall those years, I eventually threw it all in the trash.
Did you learn anything while writing this book?
I only wrote when I could feel the Holy Spirit communicating with me.  When the voice stopped, I stopped. The one time I wrote on my own, that night the voice told me that didn’t belong in the book.  The next day I deleted my portion of the writing.
What is your favorite quality about yourself?
 I try to be true to myself.  I want to remain the person I have always been.

I.M. Free nearly gave up on life as a teen living with an alcoholic parent, but at just the right time, a voice saved her life. That voice led her to a close relationship with God,who she now thinks of as her friend and confidant. She wrote this book so that others will find Him.
