This week, December 2-9th, I am delighted to participate in a blog tour thanks to the wonderful author Gail Pallotta. Thanks for inviting me, Gail!
Here are a few questions and answers about what I'm up to these days. Leave me a comment and you'll be entered to win a pdf copy of GLORY OF THE HEART.
1. What are you working on right now?
I'm so excited to relate that I am finishing Book Five of the Sterling Lakes Series, REFLECTIONS OF THE HEART.This story reunites Cascade Preston with her sister, who went to a foster home when they were younger due to family problems. But it is a romance, too - so of course, there is a dashing hero :-). I am excited to share that Book Four, GLORY OF THE HEART, shown above, will be released very soon.
2. How does it differ from other works in its genre?
Overall, I think that my Inspirational romances are very grounded in reality and set in today's world. These are all good people dealing with big, bad issues. My focus is the character's inner faith and relationship with God, then compounded with their love for each other; it's always a love triangle -- but spiritual and physical! That is what propels my stories and I think this aspect really sets them apart.
3. Why do you write what you do?
Faith and love are integral to me, and a relationship with God is what makes life bearable when there are so many challenges. There is so much joy in a life filled with God's love, and the love of another is a gift to treasure. Spreading this message of hope and entertaining readers is something I strive for in my writing. This avenue sort of chose me, I couldn't NOT write this.
4. How does your writing process work?
Well, it's kind of like that song of Shakira's -- "Wherever, Whenever"! I'm always thinking and making notes, and then when I am ready, I start writing. I try to keep the rewrites to a minimum. My day job is as a writer, which is fortunate because I am always operating on that 'writing mode' level. I try to do a least a chapter at a time when I write to keep the tone and the flow fluid.
