Susan Page Davis and Free Books!

Abby Hobart goes to meet her husband for dinner, but Peter is missing and there’s a dead man lying on the floor of his showroom.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of Chase, by Glenn Haggerty, is:

paulalipper@...

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 revisit with novelist Susan Page Davis, author of the new mystery novel, Ransom of the Heart (Tea Tin Press, June 2018).

Susan Page Davis was born and grew up in the state of Maine. She and her husband Jim have six adult children and ten grandchildren. They now reside in western Kentucky.

Susan is the author of more than 80 published novels and novellas, in the mystery, suspense, and historical romance genres. She’s a winner and four-time finalist of the Carol Award; winner of two Will Rogers Medallions; a two-time winner of the FHL Readers’ Choice Award; and finalist in the WILLA Literary Awards.

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

My father was a game warden, and as a result people sometimes brought him injured or orphaned wildlife, which made for some unusual temporary pets.

I'd love to hear more about that. I would imagine that would nurture a kind heart toward wildlife.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Ransom of the Heart.

Captain Harvey Larson is on guard when a fifteen-year-old girl approaches him during his lunch hour. Leah thinks she has proof that he is her father, but Harvey needs more evidence.

A few hours later, his sister-in-law Abby stumbles upon a body at Hobart Chevrolet. Her husband, Peter, is missing, and the Priority Unit turns out to investigate. When she finally gets a call demanding ransom, Harvey goes into high gear to set up a ransom drop. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned when they try to deliver the money.

Meanwhile Peter and Abby’s little boys agonize over their father. Harvey’s wife, Jennifer, does her best to support Abby and their other sister, Leeanne, who is gearing up for her first book signing, and Detective Tony Winfield hopes his idea for a first date will appeal to the chief’s new secretary. His cousin Amy’s getting married, and he needs a date for the wedding, but Tony forgets to reveal one crucial bit of information.

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

Abby Hobart is a new stepmom who is not too confident in that role. When her husband is kidnapped, her family is there to support her, but it’s up to her to assure the boys that everything’s going to work out. She can’t promise Andy and Gary their dad will come home, but Abby must dig deep and find a way to let them know that no matter what happens, their family is rock solid.

Imagine you’ve been contracted to write a novel about a real person. Who would you most like to write about?

John Alden, Mayflower passenger. He’s an ancestor of mine, and I wish there was more information available about him.

Fascinating! It does sound as if you've already done some digging.

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

The Face of the Earth, by Deborah Raney. It’s a wonderful relationship novel set against a mystery.

What are you working on now?

I’m writing a western novella and also a cozy mystery. I can work back and forth so long as the two projects are set in different time periods.

Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

In this story, Harvey offers his handkerchief to Abby to wipe her tears.  She seems surprised that anyone still carries one.  Can you think of other items that could seem old-fashioned to young people?

Glenn Haggerty and Free Books!

Drugs infiltrate Tyler Higgins’ middle school, turning ordinary kids into brain-dead druggies. When his friend is infected, Tyler decides to cut the small town drug flow by ratting out the dealer before it’s too late.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of A Rebel Heart, by Beth White, is:

Congratulations! I'll email you for your snail mail address, and 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 visit with novelist Glenn Haggerty, author of the action adventure/mystery suspense novel, Chase, Intense Book 3 (Freshwater Publications, April 2018).

Glenn writes inspiring adventures with an edge. No matter how dark the day, finding hope to pursue the prize is the core of all his novels and studies.

He is a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), a graduate of Vision Loss Resources and Bethel Seminary, the father of six and grandfather of seven. Glenn likes tandem biking, kayaking, and daydreaming and lives in Minneapolis with his wife.

He is also an award-winning author with short stories published in Splickety, Havok, Cadet Quest and Partners. Chase, the third book in his Intense series was released on April 1, 2018.

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

I’ve hit both the California and the Florida beaches. I’m not going to say which is better.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Chase.

In Chase, Tyler, a middle school newbie, watches helplessly as his friend, Jake, descends into drugs. With the help of a couple of classmates and encouraged by the local police, Tyler begins shadowing drug runners to rat out the methamphetamine dealer before his friend turns into a brain dead druggie.

But Tyler has underestimated the power and raw evil that is about to be unleashed against him.

There are lots of twists and turns and character surprises as Tyler and his friends come face to face with organized evil. Faith and courage are tested to the max, and many lessons are learned regarding life and friendships.

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

I think Tyler embodies the contradictions of many 13-year-old boys. Wanting to be included, wanting to be the hero, but still cowed by fear. Naïve and self deprecating, he is also stubborn and tenacious. He struggles to figure out another complex facet of friendship even as he struggles to figure out where girls fit, if they fit, into his life. In the end he learns to apply faith, and God does some extraordinary things through him.

Imagine you’ve been contracted to write a novel about a real person. Who would you most like to write about?

Billy Graham.

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

The Frozen Hours: A Novel of the Korean War, by Jeff Shaara. It was well researched and also well written. Through it I better understand the Korean War and the world as we know it today.

I read his Gods and Generals. You're right--the man is an excellent researcher and writer. What are you working on now?

My next book in the Intense series is tentatively titled, Hyde, which follows the theme of the first three books and once again also serves as the name of the main antagonist. It is set in Florida where Tyler is vacationing with his cousins. Once again, they get caught up in a mysterious disappearance that has to do with modern day pirates and treasure buried in plain sight. I’ve done some research on the Spanish gold fleet of 1715 and discovered some interesting possibilities.

Beth White and Free Books!

A destitute Southern belle must save her plantation home—Is a retired Union soldier the answer?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the e-copy of A Heart Reclaimed, by Elizabeth Maddrey, is:

cjenreffner@...


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 visit with novelist Beth White, author of the historical romance, A Rebel Heart (Revell, June 2018).

Beth White’s day job is teaching music at an inner-city high school in historic Mobile, Alabama. A native Mississippian, she writes historical romance with a Southern drawl and is the author of The Pelican Bride, The Creole Princess, and The Magnolia Duchess.

Her novels have won the American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Award, the RT Book Club Reviewers’ Choice Award, and the Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award.

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

I have dolphins in my back yard. No, really. Like Flipper. I live on Wolf Bay, near Orange Beach, Alabama, and sometimes when I sit on the swing on my dock, dolphins will swim by looking for fish. Pretty cool.

Wow, that would have me on that dock daily! You're right, that's very cool.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of A Rebel Heart.

Five years after the final shot was fired in the War Between the States, Selah Daughtry can barely manage to keep herself, her two younger sisters, and their spinster cousin fed and clothed. With their family’s Mississippi plantation swamped by debt and the Big House falling down around them, the only option seems to be giving up their independence by leaving their ancestral land.

Pinkerton agent and former Union cavalryman Levi Riggins is investigating a series of train robberies and sabotage linked to the impoverished Daughtry plantation. Posing as a hotel management agent for the railroad, he makes Selah a proposition—he’ll help her save her home, but only if it is converted into a hotel. With Selah otherwise engaged with renovations, Levi moves onto the property to “supervise” while he actually attends to his real assignment right under her nose.

Selah isn’t sure she entirely trusts the handsome Yankee, but she’d do almost anything to save her home. What she never expected to encounter was his assault on her heart.

What a great story premise. And the cover is gorgeous. I think many people assume southerners would have bounced back fairly well by five years post-war. Obviously you correct that misconception with your novel. 

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

Selah Daughtry is indubitably a lady. But she will do whatever it takes to protect and provide for those she is responsible for—even if it means going into business as a hotel manager. She holds onto a lot of guilt over the way her family has treated slaves before the War, but she’s determined to make it right. She is smart, practical, and tender-hearted, and I enjoyed getting to know her as I wrote her story.

Imagine you’ve been contracted to write a novel about a real person. Who would you most like to write about?

Brigadier-General Don Bernardo de Gálvez, Spanish governor of New Orleans during the American Revolution. In a little-known quirk of history, Spain secretly funded the American cause and sent spies along the British-held Gulf Coast, from Mobile to Pensacola, to harvest intelligence for Continental strategy. Gálvez was an inspirational leader and administrator with a genius for the balancing act of the political, military and social world he inhabited. Also, he fell in love with, courted, and married a beautiful French Creole widow named María Feliciana de Saint-Maxent Estrehan. Oh my goodness, what a movie that would make!

Yes, and what a novel! Do it, Beth!

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

I honestly don’t read a lot of fiction at the moment, because I spend my free time researching and writing! But the last novel I loved was one of Sibella Giorello’s Raleigh Harmon Mysteries. They’re all fabulous (I think there are seven or eight in the series so far). Lyrical prose, deep characterization, cool mystery puzzle, fascinating heroine, slow-boiling romance. Funny as all get-out.

Thanks for that recomendation. I have so much respect for the minds of good mystery writers. 

What are you working on now?

I’m working on the second book of the Daughtry House series (sequel to A Rebel Heart). It’s titled A Reluctant Belle, and it features the second Daughtry sister, Joelle. She’s tall and awkward and beautiful and nerdy and forgetful—and she’s in love with her childhood nemesis, Schuyler Beaumont. Unfortunately, just as she accidentally gets herself engaged to the young Methodist preacher who’s been following her around for a year (not Schuyler, unfortunately), Schuyler embroils them both in a political murder mystery.

Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

What are your favorite ways to hear about authors whose work you haven’t tried? Also, I’m curious about how far into a book you’ll go before you decide the story isn’t for you?

Elizabeth Maddrey and Free Books!

Restoring the gardens of an old mansion brings old flames back together.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the e-copy of Gift of the Magpie, by Zoe McCarthy, is:

myrtle1961@...


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 visit with novelist Elizabeth Maddrey, author of the contemporary Christian romance, A Heart Reclaimed (JoNaTiMa Books, April 2018).

Elizabeth Maddrey is a semi-reformed computer geek and homeschooling mother of two who lives in the suburbs of Washington D.C.

When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books. She loves to write about Christians who struggle through their lives, dealing with sin and receiving God’s grace on their way to their own romantic happily ever after.

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

I enjoy police procedural TV shows (and books) and can get entirely too caught up watching shows like Blue Bloods when they get a new season on Netflix.

TV viewing certainly is different now, isn't it? Do we wait until the end of a season and then binge, or do we get a little fix each week?  

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of A Heart Reclaimed.

She claimed his heart in college. Can she reclaim it at Peacock Hill?

Duncan McIntyre is grateful to spend time away from his job at a prestigious D.C. landscaping firm to help his sister in southern Virginia. Restoring the grounds of Peacock Hill to their former glory is just the sort of challenge he’s been looking for.

Anna Hamilton wants to get out from behind the reference desk at the library and use the landscaping degree she worked so hard to earn ten years ago. When she’s invited to consult at Peacock Hill, she thinks it’s the answer to her prayers. Until she realizes Duncan McIntyre, the guy who drowned out all her opinions on team projects in college, is in charge.

Determined to stick it out and add Peacock Hill to her resumé, Anna and Duncan work together to reclaim the grounds from years of neglect. Will the garden they plant blossom into love?

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

Anna sees working on the gardens at Peacock Hill as her last chance at capturing her dream. She’s determined to prove herself. At the same time, she isn’t completely sure she has what it takes. I think she has that mix of confidence and wounded self-esteem that lurks inside a lot of us, so we can’t help but root for her to conquer.

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

He was in charge. Of course he was in charge. Duncan McIntyre was always in charge—even when he wasn’t supposed to be. How many projects had they been on together, and the team had all looked to him, even when her ideas were better? Or at least as good. She sighed and kicked the corner of the mattress in the room Deidre had shown her to once she and Duncan had come to an understanding of sorts. It was clean and private. That was about all it had going. The bathroom was down the hall, shared with Deidre...and she shouldn’t be complaining. She hadn’t been summarily dismissed, and that was enough. Or it had the potential to be enough. A project like this was a huge opportunity to get her portfolio going. And she had to do something to get away from the archives. Her soul died a little every day she went in to work.

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

Harvest of Love by Valerie Comer. I love all of Valerie’s books, but this one really touched me. Her hero has a learning difficulty that essentially left him unable to read as an adult. There are so many adults who still struggle with literacy and I thought she handled his challenge with grace and hope.

I met Valerie at a writer's conference eons ago. She's a lovely woman, with a great sense of humor.

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’m putting the final touches on book 3 in the Peacock Hill Romance series. A Heart Realigned will release next month. I’ve also got a Christmas book that’s part of a collection that’s in the final stages of editing and I’m hoping to finish up a second Christmas book soon. It’s busy right now!

Busy is good! Where else can readers find you online?

My website has basic information and links to all my books (www.ElizabethMaddrey.com), I love interacting with readers on my (Facebook page) and if people want to see little snippets of my life, they can follow me on (Instagram ).

The book can be purchased online via the following button:



Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

Do you have something you’ve always wanted to do but lacked the courage to try? What is it?

Thank you, Elizabeth, for visiting and telling us about yourself and your book. Readers, Elizabeth has offered to give away an e-copy of her novel.

Zoe McCarthy and Free Books!

Ten years ago Camden crushed her heart; guess who just moved in across the street.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of A Conspiracy of Breath, by Latyane Scott, is:

chellegoodson@...


Congratulations! I'll email you for your snail mail address, and 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 visit with novelist Zoe McCarthy, author of the contemporary Christian romance, Gift of the Magpie (Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, August 2017).

A full-time writer and speaker, Zoe M. McCarthy is the author of three Christian contemporary romances involving tenderness and humor. Believing that opposites distract, she creates heroes and heroines who learn to embrace their differences. Zoe has a fourth romance and a non-fiction book on writing coming out in 2018.

Besides penning books, she gives workshops on writing, teaches the community Bible study, and crochets and knits for a prayer shawl ministry.

Zoe has two sons and six grandchildren. She and her husband live in Southwest Virginia, where they enjoy exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains and canoeing the New River.

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

As a Coast Guard brat, I lived three years in Haiti during the rise of Papa Doc and was later evacuated from the Guantanamo Bay Cuba Naval Base during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Wow, that sounds pretty exciting! I was a little girl in elementary school at that time, and I remember being frightened all the way up here in the States. I can't imagine being in the thick of it.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Gift of the Magpie.

Amanda Larrowe’s lack of trust sabotages her relationships. The English teacher and award winning author of middle grade adventure books for boys has shut off communication with friends and family to meet her January 2 book deadline.

Now, in the deepest snow accumulation Richmond, Virginia has experienced in years, Camden Lancaster moves in across the street. After ten years, her heart still smarts from the humiliating aftermath of their perfect high school Valentine’s Day date. He may have transformed into a handsome, amiable man, but his likeability doesn’t instill trust in Amanda’s heart.

When Cam doesn’t recognize her on their first two encounters, she thinks it’s safe to be his fair-weather neighbor. Boy is she wrong.

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

When Cam moves in across the street, Amanda, although a successful teacher and an award-winning author of books for boys, fears Cam will have a second chance to murder her self-worth as he’d nearly done ten years ago.

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

A looming deadline and an embarrassing Cam-encounter were serious business. Sure, in fifty years, she might view Cam moving in across the street as hilarious, but she needed help now. And God knew this. Thankfully. Perhaps God would keep her on task and, in His mercy, send Cam back west where his family had relocated.

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

The Road to Testament by Eva Marie Everson. I recommend it for the same reason I like to write this type of book. I enjoyed the humor and tenderness, and the banter and problems of two opposites. The story had a mystery, a southern setting, and an engaging romance.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on the second book in my Twisty Creek series that will be part of a multi-author 2019 Valentine’s Day collection.

Latayne Scott and Free Books!

What if some of the scholarly theories were true – a woman wrote part of the New Testament?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Lawfully Loved, by Jenna Brandt, is:

sarahackerman@...


Congratulations! I'll email you for your snail mail address, and 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 visit with novelist Latayne Scott, author of the Biblical historical literary novel, A Conspiracy of Breath (TSU Press, September 2017), a finalist in the International Book Awards' religious fiction category.

Latayne Scott has been writing since she was in grade school, and she won her first prize for writing in the third grade. She's published hundreds of short works such as poems and magazine articles; won awards for humor and for radio plays; and over two dozen published book through small publishers and big (such as Zondervan, Kregel, Baker, Word, Howard and others.)

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

I’m trying to expand my brainpower (neuroplasticity) by doing challenging tasks. Like math. (Yuck.) Getting back to my studies of German. Trying not to be a klutz in exercise class.

I've been using math-related games on my phone for exactly that purpose!

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of A Conspiracy of Breath.

A patrician Roman woman becomes a Christian and soon the Holy Breath breathes on her to produce the book of Hebrews (not unlikely considering that Jewish Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles.) Her life and those of other Christians of the time are anvils on which God hammers out His will – and His Word.

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

Like Corrie Ten Boom, she is a reluctant leader. She struggles, like Job, with the thought that God is paying too much attention to her!

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

The last night on the ship, I dreamed of the old heroes and gods. I saw them one by one fade like shadows into the glare of a sandstone cliff. I looked around for them and they were no more. There was only the cliff, and sand stretching without horizon in every direction.

Atop the crest of the cliff was a standard, and on it was a long, swaying gauze-like scarf. At first I thought the wind caused its motion. Then I realized that it caused the wind.

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

Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay Asher. I am writing some young adult novels and this was an excellent insight into teen issues.

What are you working on now?

I always have several projects going. Cruciform Press will publish later this year The Mona Lisa Mirror Mystery, a YA novella involving time travel, and I’m working on a sequel to that. I’m co-writing a nonfiction on sexual predators for Bethany House, have a new Bible study about stewardship of time, talents and possessions that will be released soon by TSU Press, am working on a literary novel about the Civil War, and am doing quite a bit of teaching and speaking.

Where else can readers find you online?

I blog at Pandora’s Box Gazette, on my blog at www.latayne.com and with co-author Dr. Beth Robinson at KidsCallMeDoc.com.

The book can be purchased online via the following button:



Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

Why do you think people often expect Christian fiction to help them feel better? Is this a good goal for Christian fiction, and why or why not?

I love that question. Thank you, Latayne, for visiting and telling us about yourself and your book. Readers, Latayne has offered to give away a signed copy of her novel.

Jenna Brandt and Free Books!

A Texas Deputy Sheriff and a small town girl fall in love in the Old West. 

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Things I Never Told You, by Beth Vogt, is:

marypopmom@...


Congratulations! I'll email you for your snail mail address, and 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 visit with novelist Jenna Brandt, author of the Inspirational historical western romance, Lawfully Loved (independently published, February 2018).

Jenna Brandt is a Christian historical romance author and she is branching into contemporary romance in 2018. Her books span from Victorian to Western to WWI eras with elements of romance, suspense, and faith.

Her debut series, the Window to the Heart Saga, has become a bestseller and her newest venture is the multi-author series, The Lawkeepers.

She is also an author in the First Street Church kindle world.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Lawfully Loved.

Jake “Bullseye” Bolton is trying to hide from a broken past through his work while Rebecca Caldwell is trying to take care of her family while they deal with an ongoing problem with their family. Both don’t think they can make room for love, but when instant attraction forms between them, they both rethink their decision.

The novel has a bit of humor with lots of action and romance.

What is it about your lead characters that will make your readers care about them?

Jake is honorable and loyal. He cares about the people he is protecting. Rebecca loves her family and does everything she can to take care of them.

Share with us one hard, cold fact about writing and one warm, fuzzy one.

Finding time to write is probably one of the largest obstacles most writers face. When someone tells me they loved my book and made them happy, it’s the best feeling in the world.

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

I really enjoyed Evangeline Kelly’s Lawfully Protected. It’s in the same series. I was surprised to like it since I don’t like first person perspective, but Evangeline does a terrific job. The characters are well developed; the story is great and you can tell she researched her book’s content.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on a spin-off series from my first contemporary romance book, Lawfully Adored which came out in April. It takes places in a small town, Clear Mountain, Colorado, which I created for the book. I decided to turn it into a series called Clear Mountain Romances and I’m working on the first book, tentatively called Clearly Wedded detailing the lives of the couple from Lawfully Adored and setting up future books in the series.

Beth Vogt and Free Books!

Things I Never Told You asks the question: Is family always worth fighting for?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winners of the e-copies of my new novella, Together by Design, are:

cheetahthecat1986@... 

and

tumcsec@...(dot)com

Congratulations! I'll get your e-books 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 visit with novelist Beth Vogt, author of the women's fiction release, Things I Never Told You (Tyndale House Publisher, May 2018).

Beth K. Vogt is a non-fiction author and editor who said she’d never write fiction. She’s the wife of an Air Force family physician (now in solo practice) who said she’d never marry a doctor—or anyone in the military. She’s a mom of four who said she’d never have kids.

Now Beth believes God’s best often waits behind the doors marked “Never.”

Beth is a 2016 Christy Award winner, a 2016 ACFW Carol Award winner, and a 2015 RITA finalist. Her 2014 novel, Somebody Like You, was one of Publisher's Weekly's Best Books of 2014.

An established magazine writer and former editor of the leadership magazine for MOPS International, Beth blogs for Novel Rocket and The Write Conversation and also enjoys speaking to writers' groups and mentoring other writers.

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

When I’m not writing, you’ll probably find me on the sidelines of my daughter’s volleyball games holding a camera and taking thousands and thousands of photos. I’ve become the (un)official photographer of both her high school and club teams. I love viewing the game through the perspective of a camera lens.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Things I Never Told You.

It’s been ten years since Payton Thatcher’s twin sister died in an accident, leaving the entire family to cope in whatever way they could. No longer half of a pair, Payton reinvents herself as a partner in a successful party-planning business and is doing just fine — as long as she manages to hold her memories and her family at arm’s length.

But as old wounds reopen and the family faces yet another tragedy, the Thatchers must decide if they will pull together or be driven apart for good.

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

Payton is anything but perfect …and this speaks to the anything-but-perfect part in all of us. Sometimes we try to hide that part of ourselves. Sometimes we try to pretty it up … but then circumstances overwhelm us, and we can’t help but be real … gut-level honest with ourselves, with others, and with God.

I recently moved to California from the East Coast, and I know I’ll end up setting some future stories here now. What life event would you say has impacted what you write?

For Things I Never Told You, which is about the complicated relationships between sisters, I drew upon my own complicated relationship with my two sisters. I believe all relationships have their difficult, challenging moments, and I like to delve into that when I’m writing — even when I was writing contemporary romance.

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

Cathy West is a good friend and a talented writer. I’ve told her that if we weren’t good friends I just might seriously envy her writing ability instead of celebrating it. Her latest release, Where Hope Begins, is rich with emotion and she tackles serious topics like grief and infidelity with insight and sensitivity.

Cathy is a terrific person. I'm not at all surprised that her books are insightful.

What are you working on now?

I’m writing book 2 of the Thatcher Sister Series — more complications … more character growth.

Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

If you have sisters, what kind of relationship do you have with them? Or if you have daughters, what are you doing to encourage a good relationship between them? Any twins out there? (I’m a twin — I have a fraternal twin sister.)

Together by Design! In Love and War! Free Books!

When life and love thwart Elena's well-designed plans, she discovers the riches available to those willing to bend, take risks, and surrender just a little control.

To celebrate the release of my latest contemporary romance, Together by Design (Winged Publications, May 2018), I'm going to give away two e-copies next week.

Here's a brief summary of the story. 

Elena Tafani is in control of almost every aspect of her life. But getting arrested is only the first in a number of experiences that throw her summer completely off kilter.

She may know how to stage a home to show it at its best, but her life isn’t showing quite as well. There’s her runaway niece, her hard-bitten sister, her over-indulgent parents, and her judgmental clients. Then there’s Chaz, the best friend for whom she’s developing very confusing feelings.

What’s a good rule follower supposed to do?


The novella can be purchased online via the following button:




This is also a good time to mention that the entertaining four-novella contemporary romance collection, In Love and War, featuring stories by Miralee Ferrell, Kimberly Rose Johnson, Debby Mayne, and myself, has been priced down to only 99 cents for the entire e-collection for a limited time.

Sherri Wilson Johnson and Free Books!

Disappearing business funds and a missing dead body have Marina Acres doubting everyone — including the detective who can't solve his case without her help.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the e-copy of The Fifteenth Article, by Linda Rondeau, is:

cjansma@...

Congratulations! We'll get your e-book right out to you. 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 Sherri Wilson Johnson, author of the romantic suspense novel, Grafted into Deceit (Indie published, October 2017).

Sherri Wilson Johnson is a multi-published Inspirational Romance novelist, speaker, virtual assistant, and self-publishing coach. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and is passionate about writing, publishing, and marketing.

She lives in Georgia with her husband Dan and her Chihuahua. She loves spending time with her adult children and friends or curling up with a good book or her current work-in-progress. Sherri enjoys doing jigsaw puzzles in the winter and counts the days every year until she can take another trip to the beach.

She is the author of To Dance Once More, To Laugh Once More, and When Love Must Wait from her Hope of the South series, and Song of the Meadowlark, Secrets Among the Cedars and Grafted into Deceit from her Contemporary Suspense series, Intertwined.

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

I’ve watched all 33 seasons of the Bob Ross painting videos (although I can’t paint) and am convinced I can paint one of his scenes once I finish collecting all my painting supplies.

Don't you just love buying supplies? I think I enjoy that as much as the arts/crafts themselves.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Grafted into Deceit.

When Marina Acres launches an investigation to find her company's missing money, she becomes a killer's target and uncovers a tangled vine of deception in the process.

Detective Steven Pennington, who suspects drugs are at the root of the problem, must keep Marina safe from the killer while keeping himself from falling for yet another victim.

Marina refuses to believe that her business partner could be part of a drug trafficking ring, but when evidence points its finger at her, she must join the fight with Steven to weed out the killer.

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

She’s been taken advantage of financially but refuses to let it stop her. She’s strong and determined to win.

Share with us one hard, cold fact about writing and one warm, fuzzy one.

Writing is hard to do when you work full time and when you don’t know if you’ll ever see the story in print.

Writing fills my bucket and makes me feel connected to God and my purpose more.

Oh, I'm completely in agreement with you on the full-time work. I really had to scale back on my writing once I went back to my day job. I long for the full-time writing days again!

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

The Priority Unit by Susan Page Davis. It’s the first book in a seven book series that’s full of suspense sprinkled with a good romance.

Susan is awesome and is a frequent guest on this site.

What are you working on now?

I am now working on a story set on the Erie Canal called The Bridge Between Us for Barbour Publishing. I don’t have a release date yet, but I’m estimating it will be 2019.

Linda Rondeau and Free Books!

The Constitutional Government is about to pass The Fifteenth Article, an act that may enflame a civil war and plunge United Earth into a third dark age.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the copy of 223 Orchard Streetby Renee Ryan, is:

mcnuttjem0@...

Congratulations! I'll email you to find out which format you prefer, and 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 participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's visit with novelist Linda Rondeau, author of the futuristic political thriller, The Fifteenth Article (Elk Lake Publishing, Inc., 2017).

Award-winning author, Linda Wood Rondeau writes to demonstrate our worst past, surrendered to God, becomes our best future. Whether speculative fiction, romance, or suspense, Rondeau’s books tug at the heart as her life-like characters struggle with issues common to the human condition: past, present, or future.

Watch for her upcoming release, Hosea’s Heart. How much does forgiveness require? A minister searches for his drug-addicted runaway wife. When they reunite, she is dying. She wants forgiveness. He seeks purpose. Time is running out. Also published by Elk Lake Publishing, Inc.

A veteran social worker, the author resides in Hagerstown, Maryland.

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

I’m one lucky woman. Since he retired, my spouse of over forty years has decided to become a house husband. I’m royally spoiled.

Excellent! We should all be so blessed.

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

The world had slumped into a second dark age due to war, famine, and disease. Eventually, a global democracy called The Accord was formed. Too weak to survive humanity’s greed, United Earth formed a faux democracy called The Constitutional Government, comprised of fourteen articles of confederation, intended to unite the cities and the polluted outworlds.

Edwin Rowlands, current governor of Western America Province, is slated to replace the ailing President. His climb to power will give him the votes to pass his proposed Preservation Act, or The Fifteenth Article. This legislation would make defection to the outworlds, once a right under The Accord, an act of treason, both past and present, punishable by death without trial.

Factions arise in opposition to the proposed legislation and civil war is threatened. Ahmed Fared, Edwin Rowlands’ second, prays to a power higher than he for wisdom to prevent a war that will plunge United Earth into a third dark age.

Fascinating premise, Linda.

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

Ahmed Fared is prince among two worlds. Respected by all the political parties within United Earth’s Constitutional Government, Ahmed is also revered as Ambassador the Western America outworld, led by his adoptive brother Jacob Goodayle.

However, his divided loyalties bring him into conflict with his superior, a deluded dictator who sees himself as mankind’s savior. However, Ahmed knows him to be humanity’s greatest threat.

What does honor require him to do? Caught between loyalties, Ahmed is brought to his knees, and asks for wisdom from a power greater than he.

What initially planned facet of a story or character developed or changed while you wrote?

As this story developed, I saw historic parallels between the American struggle for independence from a tyrannical king and the Western America Province’s struggle to break away from United Earth and form their own government. Jacob Goodayle became a Thomas Jefferson … a philosopher thrust into leadership by the times in which he lived.

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

Carol McCain’s Waters of Separation. This book expertly demonstrates the conflict most Christians face in their desire to serve and a past that weighs down their passion.

What are you working on now?

I am currently working on an Adirondack Suspense series for clean general fiction. The first book, Collins Bend Legacy, is completed. A widow is hired by a former lover, a college history professor, to help him research for his book on Adirondack Railroad Development. While researching Railroad tycoon Edwin Wordsworth, they stumble upon clues to unravel the 150-year old mystery of his death and his wife’s disappearance.

Where else can readers find you online?

Readers may visit my website at www.lindarondeau.com. Contact me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus and Goodreads.

Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

What do you think makes a story interesting? When do you put a book down, and when are you so intrigued you can’t put it down?
