Interview:
If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
I would definitely travel to the past. History is so fascinating. It would be great to be able to see history as it really happened.

What is the last book you read? The Spy Wore Red by Aline, Countess of Romanones. It was my book clubs latest pick.

What is the last movie you saw? I watched Prince of Persia with my son last weekend. I loved the action sequences.

When you were 12 years old what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be an author, but so many people convinced me that I should pick something practical, so my other plan was to be a school teacher.

Which fictional character would you most like to meet? Anne Shirley. I love her imagination.

How many books do you read a week/month? It varies depending on what is going on in my life. I usually average about 90 books a year, though.

What’s your favorite music genre? Favorite artist? Song?
I listen to a little bit of everything. My favourite artist is Josh Groban.

Is there anything you need in order to write? I need a quiet room with some classical music. The quiet room doesn’t happen very often as there is always some family member looking over my shoulder and demanding my attention. I try not to write with snacks nearby because then I totally overdo the eating.

Night owl, or early bird? Night owl. I do my best writing after the family has gone to bed. Maybe it’s because that is the only time I get that quiet room and uninterrupted writing time.

How would you describe the target audience for you books? How would you classify your books (which genre)? I would classify my book as a historical romance that would appeal to women age 14-104. I’ve even had several men read and love it.

Stephanie’s Book:
Finding Rose by Stephanie Humphreys:

On his deathbed, Rose Sterling’s father asks her to consider Miles Crandall as a suitor. Then Rose is sent to live with an uncle in Spring Creek, Montana, far from her carefree life with her family in Utah. Miles is returning to his hometown of Spring Creek to set up a medical practice, so Rose is certain her being sent there is a setup. Yet Miles doesn’t seem interested in her, and after Rose falls ill in Montana, he seems content to act as her physician and friend. When Rose captures the attention of Miles’s younger, flamboyant brother as well as the town sheriff, Miles retreats even further from
any attempt at courtship.

How can Rose honor her father’s last wish if Miles doesn’t even try to court her? Will she have the courage to put her heart on the line and fight for the one she really loves?
