Tell us about you and your book.

What makes this book special to you?
Many people face situations where shame and condemnation threaten to undo them. This book takes two people wounded by past decisions and moves them from a place of regret and self-condemnation into a place of healing and wholeness through Christ Jesus. My prayer is that this book will help readers along the same journey.
What do you do when you're not writing?
When not writing, I spend time with family and take care of two demanding but dearly loved dogs. I also work part-time in our family-owned business. When not working, my husband and I enjoy traveling – whether by plane, train, or automobile. We've visited Panama, China, Canada, Cayman Islands, and Mexico, as well as approximately half of the United States.
What is your next project?
I'm working concurrently on two projects:

 

1) I'm writing the final chapters of a historical romance featuring a barren, young widow who marries her neighbor for the sole purpose of raising his three small children. Though rough around the edges, the man is a respected leader chosen by the townsfolk to represent the community in the government's peaceful relocation of natives. As the woman's feelings for her husband grow, so grows the tension between the community and natives. Just when she fears their world is about to explode, the Lord moves over her husband's heart to do the unthinkable.

2) The second story is in the early stages and involves several of the characters from The Bounty Hunter's Bride. A young woman flees to avoid a potentially abusive relationship and takes a job as a cook at the boy's ranch. A native man befriends her, and their friendship grows into much more. When her past resurfaces, the woman must decide if she should run to keep herself and others safe, or stay and fight for the love of her life.

Do you have anything specific you want to say to readers?
I hope the reader will enjoy this work of fiction for its pure romance and its focus on the freedom in Christ that comes when a person chooses to forgive oneself.
