I’d like to introduce you to Patrick Schwenk. He is the author of The Dig for Kids, Volumes 1 and 2. You can check out his website for the books at Let’s get to know this great author!

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

Hi, my name is Pat Schwenk. I am a husband, father, and pastor. My wife (Ruth Schwenk) and I have been married for just over fifteen years. We currently have four children ages four to eleven. We are the creators of For the Family, The Better Mom, and The Dig for Kids. We love spending time together as a family, reading, serving in ministry, drinking lots of coffee, and watching Michigan Football – Go Blue!

2. When and why did you start writing novels?

I was a Print Media major in college, so it was during that time that I really began to write. The Dig was birthed more out of a desire to teach our kids the Bible than a creative writing idea. It sort of evolved from that into a full-fledged writing project after a few months of writing devotions for our oldest son.

3. Who is your favorite author and book?

Some of my favorite authors are C.S. Lewis, Paul Tripp, Tim Keller, and Chaim Potok.

4. What book are you reading right now?

I am currently reading The Cry of the Soul and The Healing Path by Dr. Dan Allender.

5. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

With four children spare time is hard to come by! Besides time with the family, I enjoy reading, working out, and cycling.

6. Do you have any new books in the works?

Currently working on the next volume of The Dig. We are hoping to release Proverbs by early Spring. In addition to The Dig, we are working on a marriage and family book.
