Interview:
Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects? 
I have a few more sweet adult romances coming for the Honey Creek books line. Goals: I want to get readers excited about sweet romance again. The kind where love happens in the heart – not between the sheets

What inspired you to want to become a writer? 
I read a book that whisked me away and left me wanting more. I want to do that. Inspire people, encourage them, remind them all things are possible.

What’s one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors? 
Don’t EVER – never-ever-never give up. This is your dream and no one else is going to chase it for you.

If you could choose only one time period and place to live, when and where would you live and why? 
I love my life. I know it’s blessed. I’d stay right here. Right now. As for the time frame: Technology is amazing, making the world smaller today than ever before. I spoke to my husband this morning via video chat, though he’s across the globe in Switzerland on business. Our kids saw him and looked out his window and showed him what they were working on. It was amazing. And I love Ohio. It’s gorgeous and delightful in innumerable ways. Life moves slower. People are nicer. I have no intentions of going anywhere else.

When you were little, what did you want to be when you “grew up”? 
A mom. (That came after I figured out space-cowgirl wasn’t a real career option)

What do you do in your free time?
Wrangle kids. We wrestle and cook and make things up together. I was a homeschool mom until this year, but we still spend lots of time together having adventures. If we can’t find an adventure, we make one up!

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be? 
The Cinderella Story

Who or what inspired you to become an author? 
I’ve always enjoyed words and been a storyteller. Being an only child help my imagination grow. I considered writing my gift or talent and wrote for a women’s ministry newsletter for a few years. Deciding to write for publication was an act of faith. Now, we’ll see what happens.

What is your guilty pleasure? 
Reality television. People and the way they interact has always fascinated me (another symptom of being an only child, I think). The fact so many people let cameras follow them around is unfathomable, so I admit it…I watch them. It’s awful.

If you had 24 hours alone how would you spend it?
Reading! I love to jump into an author’s world and see where they take me. I finish a novel (usually YA) every few days. I would definitely read or write.

In your wildest dreams, which author would you love to co-author a book with?
Janet Evanovich!

Summer or Winter? 
Summer

City or Country? 
Country

PC or Mac? 
I’m a PC 😉

What is your favorite way to spend a rainy day? 
Dancing in it

Bloom by Julie Lindsey

In a town filled with her past, she never expected to find her future…

Seven years ago Cynthia left Honey Creek with a broken heart. Three years ago Mitchell arrived with one. Now Cynthia’s come home, and these two hardened hearts can’t stop arguing. If they’d take a break long enough to find some common ground, they might be surprised to find love can grow anywhere.

If they’ll let it, love will find a way to Bloom.
