Laurie Alice Eakes and Free Books!

 photo StrangersSecret_final11_zpsvbwudwhq.jpgAs a grieving young widow, Morwenna wants only a quiet life for herself and her son. Until a man washes ashore, entangling her in a web of mystery that could threaten all she holds dear.

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of The Vigil, by Marian Merritt, is:

linderellar@ . . .

and the winner of the signed copy of Triple Threat, by Harry Wegley, is:

mauback55@ . . .

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 Laurie Alice Eakes, author of A Stranger’s Secret (Zondervan/Harper Collins Publishing, April 2015).

 photo writing -- laurie 009_zpsmwkbbksc.jpg“Eakes has a charming way of making her novels come to life without being over the top,” writes Romantic Times of bestselling, award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes.

Since she lay in bed as a child telling herself stories, she has fulfilled her dream of becoming a published author, with a degree in English and French from Asbury University and a master’s degree in writing fiction from Seton Hill University contributing to her career path. Now she has nearly two dozen books in print.

After enough moves in the past five years to make U-Haul’s stock rise, she now lives in Houston, Texas, where she and her husband are exploring their new neighborhood. Although they haven’t been blessed with children--yet--they have sundry lovable dogs and cats. If the carpet is relatively free of animal fur, then she is either frustrated with the current manuscript, or brainstorming another, the only two times she genuinely enjoys housework.

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

-- I once rode on an elephant.

-- I am so claustrophobic that I get sick to my stomach just reading about characters being tied and/or locked in a small space.

-- I am such a crazy cat lady, I once had a cat I told to go bring the dog home—and she did. (I lived on a mountain)

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of A Stranger's Secret.

 photo StrangersSecret_final11_zpsvbwudwhq.jpgLady Morwenna Trelawny Penvenan indulged in her fair share of dalliances in her youth, but now that she's the widowed mother to the heir of the Penvenan title, she's desperate to polish her reputation. When she's accused of deliberately luring ships to crash on the rocks to steal the cargo, Morwenna begins an investigation to uncover the real culprits and stumbles across an unconscious man lying in the sea's foam—a man wearing a medallion with the Trelawny crest around his neck.

The medallion is a mystery to David Chastain, a boat builder from Somerset. On a quest to discover the mystery surrounding his father, all David knows is that his father was found dead in Cornwall with the medallion in his possession after lying and stealing his family's money. And he knows the widow who rescued him is impossibly beautiful—and likely the siren who caused the shipwreck in the first place—as well as the hand behind whoever is trying to murder David.

As Morwenna nurses David back to health and tries to learn how he landed on her beach, suspicion and pride keep their growing attraction at bay. But can they join together to save Morwenna's name and estate and David’s life—and acknowledge the love they are both trying to deny?

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

Morwenna is a single mom, widowed through tragic circumstances, who is determined to regain her son’s inheritance by her own wits and skill. She has too much pride for her own good, and a whole lot of anger and guilt—some of it justified. In other words, she has feelings most of us have experienced at least one time in our lives. She wants to prove she’s a different person than she was in the past.

Most of us authors have experienced this: what unplanned facet of a story or character developed during your writing of a novel?

Morwenna—pronounced like More-wenna—was quite well developed in my head because of her role in A Lady’s Honor. But David wasn’t so clear to me. What I realized about him was his strength. Not just physical. He’s a boat builder after all, so that’s a given, but his strength of character and self-confidence even as a lowly artisan in the home of very wealthy gentry in nineteenth century England, where class mattered a whole lot.

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

The Ransom by Marylu Tyndale. It’s a continuation of her original pirate series, which makes it worth reading all on its own, and, being indy, gives her a lot of freedom to write her heart into the story, with the maturity of her craft all her previous books has brought her. Then the story is just wonderful, sensitive, swashbuckling intrigue. Who can resist a dauntless heroine, a pirate, and orphans?

What are you working on now?

I just finished my first contemporary novel. The Mountain Midwife is a spinoff of my historical midwife series. The heroine, Ashley, is a descendant of Griff and Esther in Choices of the Heart. She’s a certified nurse-midwife with a thriving practice in the Appalachian mountains, but thinks she needs more, like a medical degree, to be fully useful. And yet she is tied to the people and the land and the interpersonal relationships being a midwife engenders. Then a male shows up needing information her position as a midwife can provide about someone local and things begin to happen. I can talk all day about The Mountain Midwife, so will stop there.

Harry Wegley and Free Books!

 photo TripleThreat_MINEHalfSize_zpsfgxam8ui.jpgAdventure spans the Pacific Northwest from the shores of the Olympic Peninsula to the mountains of Whistler, BC, a conspiracy you might read in tomorrow's paper, but pray you never will.

Today we're chatting with Harry Wegley, author of Triple Threat (Harbourlight Books, Pelican Book Group, November 2014).

 photo HLWegleycrop_zpsdnqip7dg.jpgH. L. Wegley has been an Air Force Intelligence Analyst and a Weather Officer, then a research scientist for several years, where he published in the scientific literature. After earning an advanced Computer-Science degree, he developed computing systems for 20+ years for Boeing in Seattle, then retired to write.

He published his childhood adventure stories, Colby and Me: Growing Up in the ‘50s, and then published a 4-book, inspirational-suspense-series with Pelican Book Group. The 4th book released in November 2014. He’s currently finishing, and preparing to publish, his 8th novel.

Harry and his wife of 49 years enjoy small-group ministry, their 7 grandchildren, hiking the beaches of the Olympic Peninsula, and snorkeling Maui whenever their travel savings jar fills up.

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

-- As a kid, I played with old, wet, unstable dynamite and lived to tell about it.

-- While on the staff of Bomb Wing and Missile Wing Commanders, I was awakened by a phone call in the middle of the night which fully convinced me we were going to war with the Soviet Union. Scary feeling.

-- My buddy and I used to jump off a 40-foot-high bridge into 7 feet of water. After a few abrasions, and splitting the skin on our feet, we learned to do it without touching bottom.

Quiet, homespun fella, are ya? Yikes.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Triple Threat.

After spending much of her life in the foster care system, 21-year-old Katie Brandt, PhD candidate and woman of faith, frequently takes risks to prove she's worthy of love and acceptance. Her brilliance, beauty, and brawn—a triple threat—have never let her down in any type of conflict.

When she detects another triple threat, a three-pronged cyber-terror plot with the potential to cripple our nation’s infrastructure and kill millions, she pulls fellow grad student, Joshua West, with her into a high-risk investigation. But Katie realizes too late that Josh, an agnostic, is not prepared to die. She must keep him alive, stop the conspiracy, and also protect her heart, a heart rapidly falling for Josh in a relationship that appears doomed by conflicting worldviews.

This time the dangers, both physical and emotional, will take more than Katie’s triple threat to overcome.

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

Katie Brandt is loyal to a fault and will go to any lengths to protect the people she loves. She has a heart that doesn’t know the meaning of the word quit. She is quick to defend her faith when it’s challenged, and she’s learned enough to give reasons for the hope she has to anyone who asks.

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

 photo 1355994752julie-gonzalo-2011-3bc95_zpslpw4wojh.jpgKatie Brandt is almost impossible to cast. She has it all, 5’ 9”, long blond hair, slender and extremely athletic, and has an IQ approaching 200. The best I could come up with was Julie Gonzalo. I think Julie is a couple of inches too short, and I’m sure she could never hit 90 mph on a radar gun throwing a baseball, like Katie Brandt did in college.


 photo Drew-Waters_zpsecgj0qz5.jpgDrew Waters, from a few years ago, would make a good Joshua West. However, Josh played tight end on a state-champion football team, so he’s probably a bit bigger than Drew.




Most of us authors have experienced this: what unplanned facet of a story or character developed during your writing of a novel?

One of my scenes in Triple Threat depicts my hero getting stuck on top of one of the peak-to-peak gondolas in Whistler, BC, leaving him suspended a half-mile above Whistler Village. I knew that no thriller (book or movie) had ever used this longest stretch of unsupported cable in the world, so I wanted to do that.

But not until I had studied the engineering of these marvelous gondolas, and then started writing the scene, did I envision getting my hero stuck on top, fearing that a lift tower, or the terminal, might rake him off or crush him. Some readers have accused my action scenes in this book of being unrealistic. I can assure them that every aspect of this scene, and the other action scenes in the book, were written after thorough research to ensure that events in the story, while they might seem implausible, could actually happen. But don’t ask me to act them out to prove it. ☺

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

I would recommend Trinity: Military War Dog by Ronie Kendig. Her writing is superb. Her stories are action-filled, which I enjoy, immensely, and this is a great story that touches on some of the horrific things our men and women in the armed forces face as they defend us, things more of our citizens need to understand and appreciate.

Presidents send our soldiers into combat, often for good reasons, but it’s the veterans and their families that must pay the consequences. In addition to all that, if you like dogs, you’ll love Trinity.

What are you working on now?

I’m putting the finishing touches on two full-length novels. A political thriller which I’ll say more about in a few weeks, and an espionage thriller where the tentacles of the Cold War reach into the present, endangering a young woman. I miss the Cold War espionage stories, so I sought to resurrect one of them. The way things are heating up between the West and Russia, the whole Cold-War scenario may soon be resurrected.

I've always loved espionage stories. Ludlum, Follett, Forsyth. Good stuff.

Readers can find me on my web site, Facebook, Goodreads, Amazon, as well as Twitter, and Pinterest.

Marian Merritt, April Releases, and Free Books!

 photo TheVigil_h11658_680_zps9ozxvfp3.jpegWhen the Broussard family secrets are revealed, can Cheryl deal with the truth and accept the blessing of a second chance for relationships with her family, old friends, and with the God she never really knew?

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Lightning on a Quiet Night, by Donn Taylor, is:

mauback55@ . . .

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 Marian Merritt, author of The Vigil (Harbourlight Books, February 2015).

 photo 0002_zps18ewwqnq.jpegMarian Pellegrin Merritt writes stories that blend her love of the mountains with her deep Southern roots. Her tagline, Where the Bayous Meets the Mountains, grew from both loves. She is the author of Deep Freeze Christmas, A Cajun Christmas Miracle, and Southern Fried Christmas.

Marian is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Women's Fiction Writers Association. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in physical therapy and an accounting certificate from the University of South Alabama. This Louisiana native writes from the Northwest Colorado home she shares with her husband and a very spoiled Labradoodle.

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

--I rode my own Harley Motorcycle for several years – a 2004 Road King Classic. Now I ride on back of Hubby’s Motorcyle.

--I love to cook.

--I’m gluten intolerant but discovered that I could eat gluten products while in Italy without ill effects.

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

 photo TheVigil_h11658_680_zps9ozxvfp3.jpegCheryl Broussard made two vows: She'd never fall for an abusive man, and she'd never return to her Louisiana hometown. But she's learned all too well the lesson of never-say-never. Now, back in Bijou Bayou after fleeing from an abusive boyfriend, Cheryl finds work as a hospice nurse.

While reading a dying patient's Korean War love letters, family secrets shatter Cheryl's beliefs about her family and herself and shed light on the reason she fled her hometown.

When the Broussard family secrets are revealed, can Cheryl deal with the truth and accept the blessing of a second chance for relationships with her family, old friends, and with the God she never really knew?

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

Cheryl Broussard is not perfect. She makes mistakes, assumptions, and judgments. Yet she is compassionate. She also learns that God hasn’t given up on her despite her mistakes. I believe readers will be able to relate to her.

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

 photo Unknown-2_zpsqe0svb5x.jpegCarlton Perilouix by: Robert Duvall







Most of us authors have experienced this: what unplanned facet of a story or character developed during your writing of a novel?

The resentment Cheryl harbored against her mother was based on a lie. This was revealed as the story unfolded.

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

The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate. I loved the characters in the story. They were well developed and real. I also loved that it was not a “preachy” story.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on my next Christmas story set in Cavazzale, Italy. True to my tagline, the story has a Louisiana/Colorado connection.

I’m editing a Women’s Fiction: The Moon Has No Light (Summer 2015 release). Two mothers. One son. Twenty years later. Can the adopted son of one woman be the abducted son of another?

I’m also writing another Women’s Fiction set in Tuscany, Italy and Mandeville, Louisiana. A story of love lost and found.

When reading a book, if the setting is a place you’ve never been before, after reading the book, do you feel like you’ve been there? Does it make you want to learn more about the place/region? What settings are your favorites?
