She's also the moderator of the popular facebook Christian Fiction Gathering group at!/group.php?gid=128209963444. When not reading or writing, K.

Welcome Dawn! So glad to have you on my blog this week. Leave a comment for Dawn and be entered to win a free download for her new release, This Time for Keeps. Thanks for stopping by!
Where are you right now (LVR, DR, Bathroom) and what are you wearing? You have to tell the truth.
I'm in my den, a room with several aquariums, a comfy couch, my grandmother's china cabinet, a couple of tables, and an antique desk. I'm wearing on old t-shirt and a pair of capris. I like to get comfy when I come home from work.

If you could be any character in any literary book who would you be and why?
Nancy Drew, of course! She had so much fun solving mysteries.

What is something that very few people know about you?
I own two hairless Chinese Crested dogs.

What is your favorite material item that you own (examples: ipod, Gone with the Wind book, grandmother’s rocking chair)
My Blackberry without a doubt!

If you could live in any time period when and where would that be and why?
WWII because it was wonderful how America came together and worked toward a common cause.

If you could visit any place in the world where would you go and why?
England because I'd like to visit some of the places my grandfather saw during WWII.

If you could meet any person alive or dead who would that be and why? (excluding the Lord)
Mildred Wirt Benson, who wrote many of the first Nancy Drew books. She was brave enough to step outside the box and write about a girl who was too independent and courageous for the day.

What is the hardest part in writing a story?
Editing. I hate it most of the time.

What is the funniest/strangest/or most interesting thing you have learned when doing research?
While researching for my WWII romance, Queen of Hearts, I ran across this website. I loved it so much that I sent my heroine into hiding in an abandoned mental institution.

If you were writing a book about your life what would the title be?
Divide and Conquer. Because I love a challenge.
India McGuire's peaceful life is shattered when on the night of her engagement to David Richards, she comes face to face with Chase Porter, a long lost love. India must come to terms with her overpowering feelings for Chase and choose between David, the neighbor who says he loves her, and Chase, the man who broke her heart.

Chase's plans of leaving quietly turn to disaster when he finds that it's impossible to disappear without seeing India one last time. Feelings begin to surface that he believed buried forever and he finds himself fighting to win her back even as David struggles to hold onto her.

India longs to follow her heart, but she's been hurt too deeply. Who will she choose? The neighbor who can provide stability or the man she vowed to love forever who may once again heed to the call of the open road?

  1. I can identify with your thoughts, Dawn, about enjoying working toward a common cause. Projects are so much fun when there is someone pulling alongside toward that same goal. A friend of mine many years ago said "Many hands make light work" and I find it true again and again.

    I've not read one of your books yet and look forward to doing just that. Thanks for the chance to win this one.

    I already get the feed burner email about your blog Debbie, so I also joined your rank of followers just now. Don't know why/how that pic is different from my comment pic but will some day figure it out. (I like the follower pic better)

    I'm glad for the seven days to respond if I win, I will only be in and out: babysitting for some friends at their house that week.
