An Angel for the Cowboy by Jodie Wolfe

It's a pleasure to have Jodie Wolfe back with us again. What's the most exciting thing that has happened to you in the past months?

I signed a contract with Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas for one of my full-length books. It will be out in 2018. I signed another contract for a novella with Celebrate Lit Publishing which will be out in November. I'll be writing articles and lesson plans for Heirloom Audios which produce radio theatre dramas on G.A. Henty books, an author who wrote novels in the 19th Century. Oh, and my first novella with Celebrate Lit Publishing released. You could say things have been a little hectic. :)

I like your title. How did you come up with it?
My heroine, Essie Love is a dime novelist, and when she places an ad in the paper for a husband, she specifies that cowboys are not welcome. I tried to come up with a title that was similar to dime novels in the 1800s.

A dime novelist sounds like fun. What type of stories does Essie write?
Love stories, although after being jilted by her ex-fiancé, all her stories end up having the hero turn villain, which isn't getting her any book contracts.

Chuckle. What did you find most difficult about writing this novella?
Trying to develop characters that readers will fall in love with and a plausible storyline in the expanse of only 15,000 words. It makes for tight writing.

Is there a common theme in your stories?
I try to have my characters take a journey that leads toward hope. I also work hard to create quirky characters.

What can you tell us about your personal life?
I home schooled my boys all the way through till graduation from high school. Both are married now and we have four granddaughters under the age of five. Let's see, what else can I tell you? I love to read. No surprise there. :) I love spending time with my husband and most times in the winter months you'll find us praying for snow.

I take it you live in a cold-weather winter climate?
We live in PA, and no, we never get enough snow. :)

How can your readers stay in contact with you?

Blogs I contribute to: Stitches Thru Time, Putting on the New.


An Angel for the Cowboy is part of the Let Love Spring collection.
When the bank threatens foreclosure on Essie Love's home, it's up to her to provide for her sisters. She’ll do whatever it takes to save them, even if it means marrying a stranger.

Jud Steele is wanted for a crime he didn't commit. Wounded and left for dead, he lands on Essie's doorstep. While she nurses him back to health, he finds himself longing for a home and family.

Can two desperate people find a path that leads to what they both need?

Thank you so much, for having me here today, Debbie Lynne. It's great to visit again. I'll be giving away an ebook of Let Love Spring to one person who comments. I have a couple questions for your readers: What do you look for in a hero and heroine and what makes a character memorable to you as a reader?

  2. In a hero and heroine I look for people that have the faith or by the end of the book they are brought to faith. I look for them to have mutual respect for each other and be polite to each other. A memorable character is someone who cares for others and puts others needs before their own. I live in PA too, Franklin County here is central PA and we sure were lacking snow and cold temperatures this past winter, Jodie. I'm sure you didn't enjoy it at all. Let Love Spring has such a pretty cover and it sounds like a fun collection to read! I am also a feedburner follower.

  3. Great qualities for characters, Deanne.

    I know what you mean about the winter, it was quite disappointing. :(

    I hope you enjoy the Let Love Spring collection. My next story in Celebrate Lit Publishing's Christmas collection will be about one of Essie's sisters. :)

  4. I like strong characters in both men and women. They love the Lord and like to minister to outcasts.

    1. Strong characters are great, Joan, although I think they also have to have a weakness too so they are realistic. :)

  7. I also believe growing is important for a character, Paula, and for us as well. :)

  8. Perhaps they are struggling with the same thing I am at the time or I love characters who are real. With realistic feelings, problems, thinking, etc! I like to see how the author handles those tough times in life via their characters ;-) That's what makes them memorable to me.
