Where are you right now (LVR, DR, Bathroom) and what are you wearing? You have to tell the truth.
I’m in my office, and I’m wearing green shorts and a striped T-shirt and sneakers.
What is the funniest, strangest, or most interesting thing you have learned when doing research? Maybe that in 1915 a German sympathizer tried to bomb a bridge between Maine and New Brunswick, and I’d never heard about in all the 50+ years I lived in Maine. (This was when I was researching a historical book, The Crimson Cipher).
What is something that very few people know about you? I had a stroke when I was 42 years old. I am thankful to say that I have no residual effects.
What is your favorite material item that you own (examples: ipod, Gone with the Wind book, grandmother’s rocking chair) I absolutely adore our cat, but I can’t really say I own her.
If you could live in any time period other than the one we live in, past or future, when and where would that be and why? There are lots of times I’d love to visit, but I don’t think I’d want to live there. I’ll keep this one, thanks.
What is the biggest secret you ever kept (of course it can’t be a secret anymore)?
Wow, after thinking about that, I have realized I am still keeping a couple of largish secrets I’ve known for years, and I can’t tell you. Sorry. I’m not sure they even matter anymore, but there it is. Oh, there was that Christmas gift for my brother-in-law that I accidentally blabbed about. Sorry, Steve.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Driving through Manhattan. I was young and foolish. What more can I say?
The book featured for a giveaway is The Beaches and Brides Romance
This volume contains five complete historical novels in seaside settings, including my 1820 Maine novel, The Castaway’s Bride. Venture along historic American shorelines, enjoying stories full of adventure, challenge, and romance. In Key West a couple collides over a child’s welfare. In Washington, a captain’s wife guards a secret. In Maine, a castaway returns from the dead. In Georgia, a woman dares to man a lighthouse alone. In Virginia, a wounded soldier recoups at a seaside cottage. Watch as God works through their challenges to bring them safely to a harbor of love.
Other authors in the collection are: Cathy Marie Hake, Lynn A. Coleman, Mary Davis, and Paige Winship Dooly.
