Hi Kelli~ Welcome to my blog :-) Tell me about your latest project. My newest book, Red Zone, comes out October 21. It's a Romantic Suspense about a retired football player and an agents wife who find themselves in the middle of a medical suspense plot. You can pre-order at amazon. I'm also speaking at a Ladies Day in Colorado Springs in October. I especially love reminding women about God's love for them! I'm not a raging NFL fan. Will I still like your book? I hope so. While it has some great NFL references and an uber-sexy ex-player as a hero, Red Zone will appeal to all readers who love a balanced suspense/romance. I'm always interested in a writer's surroundings. Does where you live and work inspire you? A good morning at my modern Colorado farmhouse begins with a cup of flavored coffee and a few minutes with my husband. Since our house overlooks a pond, we sit outside and watch nature's effect on the water and chat before we both dive in to our busy day. He's a minister and I spend my time home schooling our three kids and helping him with Church work. That said, I don't spend my days writing, but I squeeze it in where I can. From my office window, I see barns, the Rocky Mountains, yards of farm fence and wide swathes of green grass surrounded by trees that are just starting to turn this fall. You'd imagine me writing Amish or Prairie Romance, right?! Why did you choose to write Romantic Suspense? Many people who know me well have asked me why I chose to write suspense. It is a little out-of-character for me, I suppose. I collect tea cups, read Austen and classics regularly, wear dresses and dote on agricultural landscapes. My favorite book is Anne of Green Gables. So, why suspense? I guess it taps an unseen part of my personality. What's more exciting than a murder mystery? Suspense is the spice of life, even if we aren't standing over dead bodies all day. It enhances marriages, gives authority to news and announcements, and makes our hearts beat fast. No book, no matter the genre, would be interesting without a little suspense! And what story is complete without romance? Do you have a favorite quote? "To fall in Love with God is the greatest Romance; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest achievement." Augustine What do you hope readers take away from your books? I hope they'll find my books entertaining without offending the soul. I hope they'll discover the magic of ordinary days and characters in extraordinary circumstances. Maybe readers will find themselves in one of my books. I know they'll find little pieces of me. What are a few of your favorite things? You mean besides Raindrops on Roses?! Flavored Coffee(must have whipped cream), English tea, my irresistible husband, reading classics, agricultural landscapes, Colorado, the Denver Broncos, and food! (I love cooking, but hate cleaning up!) Finally, where can readers connect with you?
