Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of The Deliverer, by Sharon Hinck, is:

Congratulations! I'll email you today to get your mailing address, and we'll get your book to you right away.

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's visit with novelist Misty Beller, author of the Inspirational Historical Romance, The Rancher Takes a Cook (Prism Book Group, June 2015).

 photo Profile Pic main_zpswpavcvkp.jpg Misty M. Beller was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep. Growing up, her family was close, and they continue to keep that priority today. Her husband and two daughters now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy.

God has placed a desire in Misty's heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God's abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

Writing is a dream come true for Misty. Her family—both immediate and extended—is the foundation that holds her secure in that dream.

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you. 

-- I was a music major my first year in college: Sacred Music, Piano Concentration.

-- I graduated from high school when I was 15.

-- I trained horses and riders professionally for a couple of years.

Sounds as if you were quite a go-getter, to have graduated at 15!

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of The Rancher Takes a Cook.

 photo TheRancherTakesaCook copy 1_zpsgbzi2b0k.jpgWhen their South Carolina home burns to the ground, Anna Stewart’s only choice is to move with her younger brother to the wilds of a Texas ranch.

Their prospects are beginning to look better, until the rancher’s son, Jacob O’Brien, shows up with his alarmingly blue eyes to put a kink in Anna’s well-controlled plans.

When danger escalates in the form of a band of cattle thieves with deadly intent, can Anna learn to release control to God’s capable hands…and those of the blue-eyed cowboy who’s stolen her heart?

What is it about Anna and Jacob that will make your readers care about them?

Anna's lost so much—both parents, her home, and all of life as she knew it. The only tangible thing she has left is her younger brother Edward. And she's fiercely determined to protect him.

Love for the ranch and the life Jacob was raised in drives him. He's worked hard to keep women out of his life, because of the distraction they caused. The land, the animals, his ranch hands—they all needed him to stay focused. When his father brings Anna onto the ranch as the cook, he's pretty frustrated and keeps his distance.

As he gets to know Anna, though, he realizes that she's not a distraction, but actually a helpmate. She has the same dreams and goals he has, and together, life is so much sweeter.

If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your lead roles?

 photo images_zpshgrjlewk.jpegWhat a great question! I guess I’d say Anne Hathaway for the Anna’s role (with lighter hair color).




 photo images-1_zpss0zbj0pb.jpegFor Jacob? It would be hard to match his crystal blue eyes, but maybe Ian Somerhalder?




Share with us one line or passage from your novel that gives us a good feel for its tone.

He shot her a scowl. “Even if you can’t shoot a gun, you should at least carry it.” 

Her back stiffened. “Of course I can shoot a gun.” 

He ignored the look of indignation she shot him. “Then you’d better start carrying one. I’ll ride back with you as far as the herd.” Without looking at her, he turned Marshall and started in the direction of the cattle.

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

I’m almost finished reading the last book of Dee Henderson’s The O’Malley Series, The Rescuer. I’ve loved it! Just the right mix of action, suspense, and certainly romance. And I love how she weaves in faith so naturally.

What are you working on now?

I’m finishing up final edits of The Lady and the Mountain Fire, and have plotting the next book in the Mountain Dreams Series. I think it will be titled The Lady and the Mountain Promise. Exciting!

--Other than secret agent, my alternate career ambition is to be a midwife.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of The Deliverer.

 photo DelivererCover_zpsyelenpjf.jpgEager to serve the One, a young songkeeper travels to the dark and foreign nation of Hazor, but her confusing, rough-edged companion has lost his Restorer gifts. As danger rises against them both, she loses her freedom, her memories, and her hope. Now even the very music of her soul is threatened.

In our world, Susan Mitchell no longer feels at home in the carpool lane. Burdened by the unhealed scars from her trips through the portal, she fights to suppress her worry about her son, who remains out of contact in Lyric. But when a mysterious message hints Jake is in danger, she and her husband are swept away—to the place they least expect.

Clan rebellions. Lost Restorers. Has the One turned away, or will the face of the Deliverer bring light to the darkness?

Book four of The Sword of Lyric series.

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

Linette is a young woman with an earnest passion to serve the One, a painful loss to overcome, and a growing attraction to the most unlikely man.

If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your lead roles?

 photo images_zpsiptzft5i.jpegMaybe Kate Hudson for Linette,





 photo images-1_zpsalhu4udl.jpegand Colin Farrell for Kieran.



Share with us one line or paragraph from your novel that gives us a good feel for its tone.

“A good songkeeper would have the perfect encouragement to offer, but I couldn’t dredge up a single useful word. I looked up at the dark gates of Sidian. Beyond them, we had been challenging generations of darkness in a frightening culture. Well, frightening to me. Fear wasn’t part of Kieran’s vocabulary. But the dangers were growing.”

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

Undercurrent by Michelle Gripe – because she writes with rich texture and immerses the reader in a different culture and time.

What are you working on now?

A romantic suspense novel set in the theatre world.

Linda Hall and Free Books!

 photo NW eBOOK COVER 2_zpshrfwv871.jpgFor yacht delivery captain Em Ridge, having the Coast Guard in her face after a billionaire's daughter goes missing is not the best way to start the boat delivery of a lifetime.

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of The Postcard, by Laura Hilton, is:

estack2003@ . . .

Congratulations! I'll email you today to get your mailing address, and we'll get your book to you right away.

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's revisit with novelist Linda Hall, author of the mainstream mystery novel, Night Watch.

 photo IMG_1213_zpsi6aybznc.jpgAward-winning author Linda Hall has written twenty mystery novels plus many short stories. She has written for Multnomah Publishing, WaterBrook Press, Random House, and Harlequin’s Love Inspired line. She’s now on her own as an author/publisher, and loves the freedom and control this brings. Most of her novels have something to do with the sea.

When she's not writing, Linda and her husband Rik enjoy sailing the coast of Maine aboard their 34' sailboat aptly named - Mystery

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.

— I have taken many boating and navigation courses and have achieved the level of Senior Navigator, which means that theoretically I know how to use a sextant.

— I have dual citizenship. I am both Canadian and American, which means I carry two passports and can vote in two country’s elections.

— I have seven grandchildren, one granddaughter and six grandsons, two of which are twins.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Night Watch.

 photo NW eBOOK COVER 2_zpshrfwv871.jpgCaptain Emmeline Ridge has always been more comfortable at the helm of a boat than on dry land. Her younger twin sisters and her parents have never quite understood Em’s passion for the open water and she has spent most of her life feeling estranged from the otherwise close-knit family.

In Night Watch, Emmeline is thrilled to have just landed her first job since getting her recreational boat captain’s license. She will be delivering the 52’ luxury sailboat Blue Peace from New Brunswick, Canada to Bermuda and then on down to the Bahamas.

There is a small catch, however. Roy Patterson, the boat’s billionaire owner has decided that his 23-year-old daughter, Katherine (Kricket) must join her and the crew Em has chosen for their voyage. Roy feels that his rebellious daughter needs a bit of an outward-bound experience.

Halfway to the Bahamas, Kricket drowns after falling overboard and Em and the crew make a direct line for the nearest harbor, Portland, Maine.

When the Pattersons come aboard the boat and identify the dead girl as not being their daughter, Em and Portland police detective Ben Dunlinson are thrown into the mystery, which also includes Em’s late husband Jesse who died eighteen months before the book begins. Was his death an accident as everyone claimed, or something more?

Wow, that's an intriguing storyline, Linda! I love it.

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

She is confident and brave yet vulnerable and someone who has experienced a lot of sadness in her life.

Share with us one line or paragraph from your novel that gives us a good feel for its tone.

This is the first couple of paragraphs:

I was in the middle of a Jesse dream when Kricket disappeared. It was the best Jesse dream I’d had in a long time, and I wanted to stay in that place forever.

We were sailing. We always sail, the two of us, in Jesse dreams. We were out in the middle of the bay on my old wooden catboat, the one I had before I knew Jesse, before he was such a part of my life. I sold that boat years ago to someone who trailered it to Lake Ontario. But dreams are like that, full of curiosities and strange chronologies, yet somehow making full sense at the time.

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

Right now I’m just about finished reading Whirlwind by Rick Mofina, who is one of my favorite mystery authors. His mysteries are so complex, his characters so rich and the story line and the suspense so satisfying.

What are you working on now?

The Bitter End, Book #2 in the Em Ridge sailing mysteries.

 photo 91hvyr5SZYL_zpstzfto6kb.jpgSometimes the courage to face your greatest fears comes only when you’ve run out of ways to escape.

And now let's revisit with novelist Laura Hilton, author of the contemporary Amish romance, The Postcard (Whitaker House, April 2015).

 photo 35839_1469192045700_1110551537_1419357_4095333_n_zpsqylevtql.jpgAward winning author, Laura Hilton, her husband, Steve, and their five children make their home in Arkansas. She is a pastor’s wife, a stay-at-home mom, and home-schooler. Laura is also a breast cancer survivor.

Her publishing credits include three books in the Amish of Seymour series from Whitaker House: Patchwork Dreams, A Harvest of Hearts (winner of the 2012 Clash of the Titles Award in two categories), and Promised to Another. The Amish of Webster County series, Healing Love (finalist for the 2013 Christian Retail Awards). Surrendered Love and Awakened Love followed by her first Christmas novel, A White Christmas in Webster County, as well as the Amish of Jamesport series, The Snow Globe, The Postcard, and The Birdhouse in September 2015. Other credits include Swept Away from Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series.

Laura is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and a professional book reviewer.

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.

-- My favorite season is Winter. I love snow.

-- I don’t like it hot. Either food wise or temperature wise.

-- One of my favorite flowers are jonquils.

It's funny that you're a fan of winter and you live in Arkansas! 

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of The Postcard.

 photo 91hvyr5SZYL_zpstzfto6kb.jpgDavid Lapp (from Promised to Another) survived a "code blue" when he was in a buggy/semi truck accident in Seymour, Missouri. Now after extensive therapy he has lingering mobility problems and is still struggling to find his place in the world.

Lured away from Webster County by thoughts of closed buggies and a postcard friendship he's developed with an Amish girl in Jamesport, he moves north, hoping for a fresh start. He finds temporary work in the area teaching school, and also makes fishing flies and weaves baskets. He sells his products in the Amish markets in the Jamesport area.

Rachel Miller dreams of travel, but feels tied to her Amish life. She is being courted by Mark Graber, but wonders if there's more to life. When she sees David's name mentioned in The Budget, she strikes up a pen pal friendship with David while he's in the hospital and in therapy, consoling him when he and his girlfriend part ways. She never dreams that David will come north and move into her community.

David is still fearful in the buggy, especially in high traffic areas. Feeling he's called by God to preach, David spends hours in the Bible, but the Amish discourage him, believing their ministers should be drawn by lot.

Will David follow his call, even if it takes him out of the Amish church? Will Rachel realize her dream to travel?

What is it about David that will make your readers care about him?

David is real. He’s hurting, but he has hopes and dreams that keep getting crushed.

Share with us one line or paragraph from your novel that gives us a good feel for its tone.

And now let's revisit with novelist Melanie Dobson, author of the "time-slip," historic-romance-suspense novel, Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor (Howard Books, June 2015).

 photo Melanie Dobson Author Pic 2_zpsgdinjzce.jpegMelanie Dobson is the award-winning author of fourteen historical romance, suspense, and contemporary novels including Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor and Chateau of Secrets. Two of her novels won Carol Awards in 2011, and Love Finds You in Liberty, Indiana won Best Novel of Indiana in 2010.

Melanie has loved writing fiction since childhood, but it was a long journey to publication. After seven years of writing and rewriting fiction, her first novel (Together for Good) was published in 2006.

Melanie and her husband, Jon, have two daughters. After moving numerous times with work, the Dobson family has finally settled near Portland, Oregon, and they love to hike in both the mountains and the cliffs above the Pacific. When Melanie isn't writing or teaching at George Fox University, she loves to explore ghost towns and dusty back roads, line dance, pick blueberries, and read stories with her kids.

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.

--I love exploring abandoned houses and old cemeteries.

--I think Settlers of Catan is the best board game ever!

--Before we adopted our girls, my husband and I spent a month backpacking through seven countries in Europe.

Great research for your novels! Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor.

This novel is about the secrets that haunt the ancient garden below Ladenbrooke Manor. More than forty years ago, Oliver Croft’s body was found in the shadows of this garden. While the English villagers have whispered for decades about what happened, no one knows for certain who killed the son of the respected Lord and Lady Croft.

When Heather Toulson returns to her parent’s cottage beside Ladenbrooke, she begins to uncover the story of a young woman who loved Oliver. And the truth about the families who tried but failed to keep Oliver and Libby apart.

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

Libby is a troubled young woman who loves to paint butterflies. Libby has a form of autism before people know much about it, and her parents love and fight for her even when they don’t understand what’s wrong. Libby grows up to be a beautiful artist with a secret that’s haunted her most of her life.

If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your lead roles?

 photo Unknown-4_zpsbb5h42vi.jpegMaggie Doyle (Libby’s mom) would be played by Jessica Raine.





 photo Unknown-1_zpscin4z3yw.jpegWalter Doyle (Libby’s dad) would be played by Matthew Goode.



 photo Unknown-2_zps5rcagclr.jpegLibby would be played by Molly Quinn.





 photo images_zpsr5ou1wzg.jpegHeather Toulson would be played by Jennifer Aniston.





 photo Unknown-3_zpsko4i4yys.jpegChristopher Westcott would be played by John Cusack.





Share with us one line or paragraph from your novel that gives us a good feel for its tone.

From Libby’s Book of Butterflies

Autumn Dancer flutters among the flowers, chasing the last rays of sunlight until her haven is swallowed up by the night. Her sisters are asleep now, hidden under the fronds, but she doesn’t care. She dances alone in the twilight, embracing the warmth of the golden hour, her wings sweeping past silky petals of the late summer blooms. In the safe cocoon of her garden, she dares believe that no harm will ever enter the gates. This is her world of beauty and peace, of sweet nectar and life, completely unspoiled by the footsteps of danger or the silent mockery of time.

Sad foreshadowing in that.

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

I love old houses and unraveling family secrets in a novel. Sandra Byrd does an excellent job with both of these in Mist of Midnight. A beautifully written, haunting story.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on another time-slip novel set in England, and I’m in the midst of editing a magical middle grade series that I wrote with my girls.

How fun to be able to work with your girls!

The pair are given controls to the Tuning Station, a machine that allows them to observe their pasts, and assigned a deceptively simple task: discover the exact moment their lives diverged. Ted believed that it was inevitable he'd leave faith and family behind. But his twin stands as a denial. What single event could have changed everything he knows to be true? (Supernatural Thriller, Independently Published)

Happy reading!
