Answer Diana's question to be entered into the giveaway. Leave contact information
Why do you write the kind of books you do?
I write Christian focused books because that’s me. Christ is a part of everything I do and I don’t think I could separate Him or God from my writing.
Besides when you came to know the Lord, what is the happiest day in your life?
Ha! I can’t pick one day. Getting married, having my boys, adopting my son? All great!
How has being published changed your life?
There’s more pressure to write more books.
What are you reading right now?
1 of the 300 books on my iPad.
What is your current work in progress?
I’m working on something set in 1878 Illinois
What would be your dream vacation?
An all-expenses paid one to anywhere!
How do you choose your settings for each book?
My characters choose where they are going to live.
If you could spend an evening with one person who is currently alive, who would it be and why?
I can’t think of anyone famous. I don’t want to do that because then they become normal and what’s the fun in that? Although I would like to spend time with Bobby Flay so I could learn how to use my new BBQ qrill.
What three things about you would surprise readers?
I don’t like driving. I’d like to have a pet goat and am gluten free which makes eating anywhere tough.
What are your hobbies, besides writing and reading?
I like to walk, ride bikes with my husband and sew.
What advice would you give to a beginning author?
STUDY!!!! Get the Margie Lawson courses, the My Book Therapy books and go through them. You’re writing will jump to another level making it easier to sell.

Heaven’s Stolen His Heart
After witnessing the ravages of the Civil War, Travis Logan vowed to give up doctoring. But when fellow steamboat passenger Caleb Wharton collapses at his feet, Travis knows he must lend his aid. As the old man lies dying, he makes Travis promise to take care of his land and find Heaven. Travis can’t help but wonder what Heaven has to do with a real place, so he heads to Caleb’s farm to fulfill his promise.
Weeks of facing marauders and caring for her father’s home have finally taken their toll on Heaven Wharton. When an unknown young man charges the house, Heaven attempts to fire a warning shot but ends up shooting the man instead. Shocked, she and her sister, Angel, drag a semi-conscious Travis into the house and nurse him back to health.
As Travis and Heaven both struggle to control their destinies, will they learn that only a heart that follows God can ever find peace on earth?
What do you want readers to take away from the book?
I hope they laugh, feel the emotions of the characters and realize that they are never on their own as long as they have Christ living in them.
