Reader letters actually. I had hoped to get to write a story for each man on the fictional Refuge Pararescue team. Many readers requested Vince's story, and it was so fun to write. I got the idea from hearing about how many car wrecks are caused by texting or otherwise driving under the influence of distraction. I knew Vince's background from previous books and that his brother had died in a prison riot after being wrongly convicted. So naturally Vince has an aversion to anyone involved in the legal or justice system. We also know he has had a resistance to Christians. Ironically he becomes one in the book-my only conversion story so far.
I thought it would make for interesting conflict to make the heroine be both a Christian and a prosecuting attorney. LOL!
If you were planning a party with Christian authors of contemporary fiction, what six people would you invite and why?
Can't pick 6! 7's my favorite number. LOL. Camy Tang, Danica Favorite-McDonald, Robin Miller aka Robin Carrol, Tosca Lee, Cynthia Hawkins, Karen Ball, Margaret Daley.
I'd also try to smuggle in as many Seekervillains as possible http://www.seekerville.blogspot.com/
Because the laughter would be a never-ending riot, and we could pick Karen's brain for story ideas. She's phenomenally funny and talented.
Now let’s do that for a party for Christian authors of historical fiction, what six people would you invite and why?
OOOOH! I can't pick six. How about 7? Robin Miller/Carrol (JUST KIDDING, ROBIN! LOL), Pam Hillman, Mary Connealy, Janet Dean, Julie Lessman, Cara Putman, Cathy Hake who could smuggle Kim Vogel Sawyer into her suitcase (is that cheating?), Lena!
Because I LOVE them and their books.
Many times, people (and other authors) think you have it made with so many books published. What is your most difficult problem with writing at this time in your career?
Tell us about the featured book?
A Soldier's Devotion was an absolute joy to write. I loved wreaking havoc on the hero who has wreaked havoc on all his teammates up until now. Here's the back cover blurb:
U.S. Air Force pararescue jumper Vince Reardon was headed to a lifesaving mission-until pretty lawyer Valentina Russo crashed into him, sidelining him for two weeks. Ever since his brother was wrongly convicted, Vince has little respect for lawyers, but Valentina soon earns his respect.and his heart.
