Welcome back, Lynette. It's been a while since you were here. As an author, I know it takes a lot of people to birth each book. Who were the people involved in the birthing of this book, and what were their contributions?
Oh goodness, so many people. I’m sure I’ll forget someone, but I must thank my FBI buddy, Drucilla Wells, who read and critiqued the FBI procedural stuff. And Jim Hall, a police officer, who also read and critiqued the law enforcement stuff. Without them, there’s no telling how many errors would be in that book! So thankful God places people in our lives when we need them most! And of course, everyone from my brainstorming buddies to my editor, Andrea Doering (who is a fabulous brainstormer!) to Barb Barnes who makes sure all copy editing is done to a T. She’s fabulous. Who else? Michele Misiak who makes sure the books get all the publicity possible and Donna Hausler who is in charge of blog tours and making sure influencer copies get into the right hands. And I could really go on and on, but I’ll stop there. J
If you teach or speak. What’s coming up on your calendar?
I LOVE to teach. More than I like to speak, although I do that too. J May 19-23, I’m teaching at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. In August I’m teaching at the Catch the Wave Conference in GA and November, I’m teaching at the CLASS conference in
These are some fabulous opportunities for people to come learn the craft of
writing. Albuquerque, NM
If you had to completely start over in another place, where would you move, and why?
And I don’t mean Florida.
It just looks so peaceful and slow paced. I think I would like a more slower
paced life! LOL.
If you could only tell aspiring novelists one thing, what would it be?
NEVER give up your dream of writing no matter what anyone says.
You’ve been asked to be in charge of a celebrity cruise. Who would you ask to take part, and why? (AS in what program, singers, etc. [it doesn’t have to be writing related])
Singer – Mandisa – just love her. She has a wonderful testimony, loves God wholeheartedly, and has a passion for reaching other for Him. I just plain like her. Oh, and she has an amazing singing voice. LOL.
Karen Kingsbury – just because she’s so gracious, a fabulous writer, and makes people feel right at home.
Abby Scuito (however you spell her last name.) from “NCIS” – She cracks me up. I love her personality.
Jim Caveziel from “Person of Interest” – I just like looking at him. I’d put him in charge of security.
Tell us about the featured book?
When a Secret Kills is the third book in the Deadly Reunions series. Here’s the back cover blurb:
She's come home to put a killer behind bars.
But the killer plans to put her six feet under.
Investigative reporter Jillian Carter knows it's time to put the past to rest. She's tired of looking over her shoulder, letting a killer go free. She's no longer the scared kid who changed her name and disappeared. Now, no matter what the cost, Jillian must do what she is trained to do—find the truth and expose it. And the truth is that Senator Frank Hoffman committed murder ten years ago—and Jillian watched it happen.
Get ready for the spine-tingling, nail-biting conclusion to this explosive series.

Would he try to kill her today?
Jillian shifted her carry-on bag, stepped off the plane and walked through the jetway toward the gate, her eyes scanning every face she passed. Yesterday, she’d called Serena Hopkins, her high school friend she hadn’t seen in ten years, and gotten an earful on the events of the past two months. Serena had warned her in no uncertain terms that Jillian was a target.
Jillian had almost laughed out loud. Being a target wasn’t something new to her. She’d been a target for the past ten years while living in
She’d just been a hidden target.
Until about two weeks ago when someone tried to kill her and got her friend and co-worker instead. She fingered the healing scar on her forearm as she thought about Jeff. The grief threatened to smother her, and she shoved it off with a vengeance. There would be time for grieving later.
Knowing they’d tracked her down after ten years of hiding, using a false name, and covering her tracks not only scared her down to her very bones, it told her two things.
They were getting desperate…
…and it was time to fight back.
