Please tell us about your latest or upcoming release. Do you have a review you could share with us?
Researching mining camps in the 19th century was essential to writing A Mile Apart. There were so many issues that intrigued me, I’d have to write a series to cover them all! However, I’m hopeful that I included some interesting anecdotes from that era to paint an accurate picture.
“Recommended for anyone that enjoys good clean historical romance.” Amazon Reviewer
What inspired this story?
My love of history. I typically write westerns and wanted a challenge, so I opted to choose a mining camp as the backdrop for A Mile Apart.
What is the story behind the story?
The choices we make affect others and most often have consequences. But there is always redemption at the ready. My characters, whether choosing it or not, always have the opportunity to be restored in some capacity—that could be relationally or by faith.
Why do you write romance?
I love the enticement of the forbidden, love triangles and the mystery and wonder of “who will the character choose?” So, I write romance.
Please tell us about your other books.
I have a western series called Lincoln County, which is without a doubt, a tragic love triangle. The Secret Touch of Mary Kincaid, is a scandalous western—a short story. Broken Identity is my only contemporary work, about a Christian woman who has an affair…or does she? And my first work, the first of a western series I call, The Heart of a Soiled Dove. Book Two of this series is in progress.
Excerpt from A Mile Apart.
With Christopher in tow, they walked through the muck of the camp. The hem of Eden’s dress weighed her down by a good amount of thick, wet dirt—and who knew what else—clinging to it. Men sat around in tattered, dirty clothing and leered at her. She knew it was Andy’s hand on the butt of his gun was the only reason the mangy men did nothing more than use their voices. Although it had only been one day, she knew Christopher was a good boy, and surprisingly, not inquisitive. It appeared he was used to obedience and the adage, be seen and not heard. She looked down at his precious head of hair and felt a pang of pity. She had no idea what the outcome of the forthcoming encounter would bear, but she would do what was best for the boy, and that entailed him being with his father.
