I became an author because I love to make up stories ever since I was a little girl. I used to have elaborate stories involving my dolls.
If you weren’t an author, what would be your dream job?
For 27 years I had my other dream job. I was a teacher for children with special needs. Loved that job!
It takes a special person to do that, and I'm sure you were very good at it. If you could have lived at another time in history, what would it be and why?
I love researching different times in history and have been doing some right now for a book I am writing. With that said, I like the time period I live in right now. I have been reading about the early 19th century, especially the woman’s role, and realized how lucky we are to be alive today.
What place in the United States have you not visited that you would like to?
I would love to see Montana and Yellowstone National Park. The scenery looks awesome.
I know. I love looking at pictures and videos from there. How about a foreign country you hope to visit?
I want to visit Australia or New Zealand.
I do, too. Maybe we could go together. What lesson has the Lord taught you recently?
To give control over to Him.
Blurb for Christmas Bodyguard:
Someone's after wealthy Texan Slade Caulder's daughter. Desperate to keep her safe while he determines the motive, the widowed father hires a bodyguard for Abbey. A female bodyguard, with the training to protect the girl--and an understanding of a willful teenager who keeps trying to outsmart her. Elizabeth Walker is the perfect combination of caring and toughness for her job. But as the holidays approach, the stalker's threats escalate. And Slade finds himself willing to risk everything to keep his Christmas bodyguard by his side...forever.
Guardians, Inc.: Born to protect, bound to fall in love
Sounds like a very good story. Please give us the first page of the book.
"Watch out!" Slade Caulder said through clenched teeth, gripping the door handle on his SUV. Why had he allowed a sixteen-year-old with a permit to drive? Only a few more miles to the ranch—thankfully.
"Dad, I saw him coming out. I've got everything under control."
When he noticed Abbey sliding a glance toward him, his heart rate shot up even further. "Keep your eyes on the road."
"I'm gonna ask Gram to take me driving next time."
"No." Although he wished he could let his mother-in-law take over teaching his daughter to drive around Dallas, he wouldn't. It was his job.
The car gained speed. "Don't go over sixty."
"I'm not. I have to practice going highway speed. Quit worrying about me."
Yeah, sure. She might as well ask him to quit breathing. It wasn't going to happen. Abbey was all he had. At least this was an almost-deserted stretch of road.
Suddenly the car swerved to the right toward the ditch along the highway. He lurched around and glimpsed the color leaching from Abbey's face. Her knuckles whitened as she fought the shimmying steering wheel.
"Daddy!" she screamed above the thumping sound followed by a whomp. "I can't control…”
