RITA Finalist and Carol Award winner Rachel Hauck was recently chosen by Family Fiction readers as one of the top five romance authors in CBA. She has written more than fifteen novels, including the acclaimed Songbird novels with multi-platinum country singer Sara Evans.
Rachel lives in central Florida with her husband, and writes from her ivory tower (her office really is in a tower, and it’s painted ivory!).
Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.
-- I don’t like overhead fluorescent light.
-- I’m a Pollyanna.
-- I used to be a huge Donny Osmond fan.
That Pollyanna thing is only one reason you're so great at leading worship!
Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Princess Ever After.
Princess Ever After is the second in the royal wedding series where ordinary girls like you and me find themselves in a royal way.
Regina Beswick restores classic cars in Tallahassee, Florida, living the life she chose for herself after jumping the corporate CPA ship. But when Tanner Burkhardt, Minister of Culture, from the island Grand Duchy of Hessenberg shows up at her shop one evening to tell her she’s their long lost princess, Regina has to decide if she’s going to be who she thought she was or who God was calling her to be.
It’s about stepping into our destiny even if we don’t feel equipped or prepared but trusting God’s faithfulness and leading.
Why will readers care about Regina?
Regina is an every day girl. She’s just like you and me. And there’s something exciting about finding out “you’re a princess!” I loved that part of her story. I lived a little bit through her. What if that was me? It was fun.
What is one of your favorite opening lines from a novel?
“She’d found bliss.”
(From Princess Ever After)
What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?
Take a Chance on Me by Susan May Warren. She’s just a fabulous writer.
What are you working on now?
The third book in the royal wedding series, How To Catch A Prince.
