I'm happy to welcome Margaret back to my blog with this book in a Love Inspired series.
Welcome, Margaret, I just love reading these series by Love Inspired. What is the name of the series this book is in, and where in the series does it occur?
The series takes planes in Prairie Springs, Texas. The series is called Homecoming Heroes because it is based around characters who are in the military or recently have been.
That's a subject close to my heart, since my oldest grandson has recently returned from Iraq. Who came up with the idea for the series?
The Steeple Hill editors came up with the series. We took basic plots and continuity threads we were given and ran with them.
I know that working on a series that weaves together takes a lot of work. How did your team schedule the work?
We formed a yahoo loop and talked and emailed a lot, especially in the planning stages.
Did you find it hard or easy to work within the series framework?
A continuity for Love Inspired is easier to write than one for the Love Inspired Suspense series. This is just my opinion and others may feel different, but I’ve written both types of continuity series. It still has to be woven together which does require working with the other authors.
What other books have you had published?
In the Love Inspired line I have written fifteen other books. I also write for the Love Inspired line (to date I have had fifty seven books bought—not all Steeple Hill).
That's an impressive number. When you aren’t writing or spending time with your family, what is your favorite activity?
Reading and going to lunch with friends.
Where do you do most of your writing?
Sitting at my desk working on my computer—occasionally I will use my laptop and sit on the couch.
I use my desktop computer the most, too. What part of the country do you live it? And why do you like that part of the country?
I live in Oklahoma and it’s been my home for almost thirty-eight years. I love the area. It’s almost in the middle of the country so I’m not too far from any one place.Now, Margaret, tell us about the featured book.
My book is the fifth one in the series. It is called A Texas Thanksgiving.
Two matching-making little girls try to get their parents together, but neither Julia Saunders or Evan Paterson wants to have anything to do with dating. That doesn’t stop their daughters from scheming to match them up. Will their plan work and break down their parents’ barriers?
