Hello LoRee 

Welcome. 

Tell us about your hero and heroine. What makes them likeable?
Phoebe is a spoiled 1890’s rancher’s daughter who decides to grow up by seeking employment in the 21st century. In her own century, she went to Chicago near the time of the World’s Fair and fell in love with the stage and exposure to modern life. She’s curious more than fearful when she jumps forward in time.
Nolan is a dependable loner who determines to cautiously help Phoebe as he has others. What an unbelievable surprise when she lands on his van in her historic dress. He can’t help but be taken with her. Though skeptical toward her story, he helps her get settled.
How much of the book is based in real life?
Number one should be the way God brings Christians into the lives of unbelievers as examples of light. The scenes in Omaha are current. My son-in-law is a lighting man, a grip who has been a gopher, so the filming descriptions should be accurate.
What book are you reading now?
I am reading The Dream King. Mike Huckabee interviewed the authors on his TV show, and I was intrigued. This story is the most powerful, patriotic, providential example of God’s timing in the lives of Christians that I’ve run across in a long time.
Through details only God could orchestrate, Will Ford and Matt Lockett met personally at the Lincoln Memorial on MLK Day early in the 21st century.
The fast friends discovered later that Matt’s family owned Will’s African-American ancestors. Those early slaves had prayed secretly for freedom under a kettle that a grandmother Locket (one T was dropped in Will’s family line) had handed down and ended up with Will.
The family connections continue in jaw-dropping ways. Mary Lockett was the “Betsy Ross” of the Confederate flag. The connections between the two can only be woven by God.
God used many ongoing details to reveal Himself to these men, and point them to their ministries. God proves again how He chooses people we connect with to influence our lives in ways stranger than fiction.
What is the hardest part about writing?
The doubts. Yes, I’ve completed two dozen stories (one will never be submitted). But am I growing as a writer? Is the spiritual message still clear, without preaching? There are times I don’t know what to write, has my well run dry? I’m a great-grandmother, am I too old to reach people with my romance ideas?
And I continue to fight the physical battles that often keep me from sitting in my story-telling chair. Then the Lord comes through with His timing, and I can’t help but write.
More importantly, if writing doesn’t come easy it can be recognized as a spiritual issue. The enemy doesn’t want Christian writers to spread the message of hope. Prayer is a vital part of writing and sometimes even those words don’t come readily.
What is the spiritual takeaway for your reader?
The Lord is the same, yesterday, today, and forever.
What is your hero's main character flaw?
Nolan Withholds giving himself for risk of not keeping loved ones safe.
What is your heroine's main character flaw?
Phoebe wants what others have, which borders on envy.
What can readers learn from your villain?
Evil hides in those with mental issues, so often how they act is due to satanic influence.
What makes your hero heroic?
Nolan reaches out to those who are weaker, or in need of help. That means Phoebe, who is naïve in this story.

what makes your heroine heroic?
Phoebe wants to right a wrong, so once she accepts Christ, seeks to make amends with Mandy from Cowboy Just in Time. She also readily forgives.
