What is your favorite beverage to drink while you’re reading a book?
Do you prefer an e-book or print copy?
Historical or contemporary?
What is your favorite book?
My answers to the above questions:
- I drink coffee in the mornings, and in the afternoon I like a cup of hot tea.
- I read mostly on my Kindle app these days because the lighted screen is easier on my eyes than a paperback. I discover new authors and books every week. Some I read on Kindle Unlimited or borrow from my local library on the Libby app. I also browse on Amazon and purchase books that look interesting to me. If I like a series, I tend to buy every book, and often end up having to wait for the newest sequel to be released.
- I like both, but currently I read more contemporary than historical.
4. Some of my favorites books:
My favorite historical novel is “A Lantern in Her Hand” by Bess Streeter Aldrich. The book is set in the 1800’s and the details are so historically accurate that it makes for a fascinating read.
I also love the Red River of the North series by Lauraine Snelling. For a few years after I found the series, I reread the books every winter. The details are rich and the characters are inspiring.
I cut my teeth on Grace Livingston Hill novels. My mom had a lot of her books, and I read them all several times. Later, as an adult, I bought all of the GLH books that were available at the time, 100 of them. I then bought an enclosed bookcase to house them. I have most of the stories memorized now, but I still like to take one out now and then and read my favorite parts. The books were contemporary in the era that they were written in. I enjoy the little details like how much a bowl of soup and crackers cost when a character was trying to watch her pennies.
As far as my favorite contemporary books, it’s so hard to make a choice. Currently, I’d have to say that the Lifeline Air Rescue series by Laura Scott is a favorite. I’ve read them all at least twice. I also like anything by Melanie D. Snitker.
As an author, I write both historical and contemporary novels. Readers who followed my writing journey from independent to traditional publishing have read and liked my historical series, the Legacy of Courage. Although it was on the market for a few years, I’ve temporarily stopped publication as I am currently editing and updating the books. There will be more books about Cara and Adam in the future.
My first contemporary work to be traditionally published is my Christmas novella from Anaiah Press. This book was released during the holiday season in 2019. I recently signed a contract for a sequel to my novella, Serena’s New Year’s Wish. The sequel continues the story of a widowed dad, a precocious child, and a woman who saves them both. It will be published in 2021.
My first full-length novel, The Reluctant Billionaire, was released on April 13. To celebrate, I’m hosting a giveaway. The prize is a copy of my Christmas novella.
