Today we welcome Theresa Lynn Hall. Glad to have you, Theresa. Can you tell us when you realized you wanted to be an author?
I think when I was in the sixth grade is when I started to realize how much fun writing is. I was an avid reader and would spend my summers visiting the library and reading suspense novels. By the time I was thirteen, I realized I wanted to write a book someday. The day finally came when I was a stay-at-home mom to my two sons. I’ve been writing ever since.
Who are your favorite authors in your genre? Lisa Harris, Katy Lee, Marta Perry.
Where did you get your inspiration for your characters? It’s hard to say where I get my inspiration from because it comes from many places. I think my characters are a mix of myself and a lot of people I know, or have come into contact with. I try to give my characters problems that most of us can relate to in some way or another.
Which character was your favorite to write? My favorite character was Braden. For the most part, he has it all together. He’s strong, confident and knows what he wants. He has his hang-ups but he’s a rock in some pretty tough situations.
Which was the hardest character to write? Lexi was the hardest to write. She’s been through a lot and realizes she’s on the verge of losing everything. She has to make some tough decisions if she wants to find happiness.
