J. Carol Nemeth and Free Books!

After witnessing a murder but not seeing the murderer, innkeeper Casey Hartman is on the run with guest and DEA agent Will Kerns who is determined to keep her alive until he can determine who the killer is and bring him to justice.

This week we're talking with novelist J. Carol Nemeth, author of the Christian romantic suspense novella, Courage on the Run in the Dangerous Pursuits Collection, (Indie, October 2021).

A native North Carolinian, Carol always loved reading and making up stories since childhood, and she began writing in junior high school. 

She worked in the National Park Service and served in the US Army, where she was stationed in Italy. That’s where she met the love of her life, Mark Nemeth, also an Army veteran. They’ve lived in various locations including North Yorkshire, England. They now live in West Virginia, where in their spare time, they enjoy RVing and traveling to research for Carol’s books. She also enjoys reading and crocheting. 

Carol and Mark have two grown children, a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, and three amazing grandchildren, as well as a lab fur baby named Holly. 

Carol is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and is an Amazon Bestselling author. She writes Christian romantic suspense, both historical and contemporary. Filled with suspense, drama, faith, and romance, Carol’s stories will keep you turning pages until the very end.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

When I was serving in the US Army, I was given the privilege of giving a briefing to a US Army Commanding Brigadier General from the European theater while I was stationed near Pisa, Italy. I had not yet been promoted to Seargent at that time, so it truly was a privilege. His office sent me a personally signed and framed letter from that general, stating how he was impressed with my briefing. I was blown away by it. I still have that framed letter.

What a wonderful memento, Carol! Thank you so much for serving our country.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Courage on the Run.

It’s actually a novella. Courage on the Run is one novella included in the Dangerous Pursuits Collection. 

Casey Hartman checks handsome Will Kerns into Belmont Inn, her family home passed down through generations. He claims to be on vacation, but when Casey witnesses a murder, Will flashes his DEA badge and takes her on the run. His real mission is to seize a drug operation in the historical town of Belmont. 

Casey can’t believe this is happening in her little town, much less that she witnessed a murder. 

Will is determined to take down the drug ring and the man leading the operation, but can he do that while running with Casey? She wasn’t part of his mission. 

Will soon realizes this courageous young woman of faith has stolen his heart. However, no amount of love will prevent a determined killer from finding them, no matter where they hide.

What is it about Casey that will make your readers care about her?

Casey Hartman runs a bed and breakfast in the old home that’s been in her family since the early 1800s. It went through the Civil War and was used by both sides. She’s proud of her heritage and of her town of Belmont, and her home also bears the name of Belmont Inn. She believes her old home town is picturesque and perfect and the people of the town are pretty much the same. Casey soon discovers she’s been blind to the truth.

Write one sentence that tells us something about your main character as a child.

I didn’t write anything about Casey as a child, but if I were to do so, Casey would have had an idyllic childhood in this family home with all her past family members around her.

Readers, here is a visual of the exciting set of novellas in which Courage on the Run is featured:


Carol, what is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

I’m reading a series called The Brotherhood of the Black Tartan by Nicole Van. I had never read any of her books before. I saw a review by a fellow Winged Publications author for the first book and it was available for free, so I downloaded it. It was awesome.

They are not Christian books, but they are clean romantic suspense books set in the early 1800s. I’m on the fourth book now and I do recommend this series because they engage the mind. They’re set in Scotland and England and have engaging characters as well as well written settings. The author has done a great job of writing the suspense, which is drawn out through the series. I even pre-ordered the final book and I’m looking forward to reading it.

What are you working on now?

I’m writing the final book in my Faith in the Parks romantic suspense series. If anyone has read any of my books in this series, they’ll know these books are set in various National Parks. The final book will be set at Gettysburg National Battlefield Park.

New Christmas Release! If Only in Our Dreams!


NEW RELEASE FOR YOUR CHRISTMAS READING! 

IF ONLY IN OUR DREAMS 

Here's what this romantic story is about:

Harper Deering has figured it out. The most fulfilling Christmas celebrations go beyond the giving of gifts and involve the giving of one’s self—a mirroring of the original Christmas, so to speak. She’s organized her family’s traditions accordingly.

But the discovery of a lifelong secret on Christmas morning rocks her world and sets her on a course that challenges her ideas of generosity and loyalty. Is there such a thing as being too sacrificial to keep a loved one happy? Harper has always been a risk taker, but the relationships at stake now are all too precious. Which one is she willing to lose?


The book is currently available in ebook and print format, and an audiobook version will be available soon. Buy the book now via the following button:

Ane Mulligan and Free Books!

She traded Sugar Hill for Vaudeville. Now she’s back, but will the people of her past keep her from a brilliant future?

Before we revisit with today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free Kindle copy of the historical women’s novel, Second-Hand Sunsets by Gail Kittleson, is:

mauback55@...

Congratulations! We'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's chat with novelist Ane Mulligan, author of the historical romance novel, On Sugar Hill (Heritage Beacon, June, 2021).

Ane Mulligan has been a voracious reader ever since her mom instilled within her a love of reading at age three, escaping into worlds otherwise unknown. 

But when Ane saw Peter Pan on stage, she was struck with a fever from which she never recovered—stage fever. She submerged herself in drama through high school and college. One day, her two loves collided, and a bestselling, award-winning novelist emerged. 

Ane lives in Sugar Hill, Georgia, with her artist husband and a rascally Rottweiler. 

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I’m the artistic & managing director for a theatre company.

You're so perfect for that role, Ane. Please tell us a bit more about the plot of On Sugar Hill.

She traded Sugar Hill for Vaudeville. Now she’s back.

The day Cora Fitzgerald turned sixteen, she fled Sugar Hill for the bright lights of New York City, leaving behind her senator-father’s verbal abuse. But just as her career takes off, she’s summoned back home. And everything changes. 

The stock market crashes. The senator is dead. Her mother is delusional, and her mute Aunt Clara pens novels that expose the town’s secrets. 

Then there’s Boone Robertson, who never knew she was alive back in high school, but now manages to be around whenever she needs help. Will the people of her past keep her from a brilliant future?

What is it about Cora that will make your readers care about her?

Cora has gained star status as a ventriloquist and voice thrower in vaudeville. Giving that up to come home to help her mother and aunt is a huge sacrifice, yet she does it willingly. She still dreams of returning to vaudeville or even Broadway, but ...

Write one sentence that tells us something about your main character as a child.

Her father’s words of disdain drowned out her mother’s words of encouragement.

Aw, that's terribly sad. 

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

Dust by Eva Marie Everson. The story was so captivating, I did nothing but read until I finished it.

Yes! I featured Eva and her book here in May. Another southern women's novel!

What are you working on now?

The 4th book in the Georgia Magnolias series, Up Level Creek.

She's a swashbuckling dreamer who wields books instead of swords. He's a no-nonsense lawman who longs for justice. Total opposites with one goal in mind.

Your books are great fun.
