Share a little about the story behind the story.
I love stories about women who have minds of their own and are brave. I also love stories where the hero loves that too even if he didn’t know it at the beginning of the book. That’s what you find in An Honorable Arrangement.
Sarah has recently learned that her father is not dead, so she devises a plan to escape her escort and find the man who is her only family.
What is the theme or takeaway you want readers to think about?
That family is not always by blood. Sometimes the family we gather to us holds the strongest bonds.
When did you know you wanted to be an author?
In my mid twenties I realized that the stories in my head might be entertaining to other people and I could write them down. It had never occurred to me before that.
I love them all, but I have a very spoiled cat.
If you could travel to any spot in the world, where would it be?
Spain is on the top of my bucket list. However, I love Italy very much and hope to go back soon. I also adore England and would love to take my husband to see all the sights.
What’s next in your writing?
Magic Touch is book one in the Witches of Windsor series. It comes out on April 19. I’m currently writing Magic Word, which is book two of the same series. This is a thrilling series about the witches' coven that protects Windsor Castle and the crown in nineteenth century England. The characters and setting are infused with magic and love with the melding of the “real” world and that of magic.
