AVAILABLE NOW: The Doctor’s Devotion (Love Inspired).

Welcome, Cheryl. 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?
I have my editor, Melissa Endlich, to thank for this series. She’d asked me to write a medical miniseries since I’m also a nurse. I am so glad I followed her advice because this series was enormously fun to write. I also have Missy Tippens, Janet Dean, Mary Connealy, Ruth Logan Herne, and the other gals in Seekerville to thank for their input on ideas when the series was in its planning stages. They were a great help and encouragement to me and I’m thankful. 

If you teach or speak. What’s coming up on your calendar?
I reach out to local writers via an online Facebook group where I try my best to mentor them. I don’t have appearances as of yet since other life issues have taken priority currently. I do love connecting with readers and also encouraging aspiring writers and do that almost daily at my Facebook author page which is dedicated to and focused on my readers.

If you had to completely start over in another place, where would you move, and why?
Alaska or somewhere cold and near the ocean on the east coast. I’ve always wanted to see the outer banks. I hate the heat and humidity and I am freakishly in love with snow and winter. I’d rather have a snowflake on my finger than a diamond…that’s how crazy I am about it.

If you could only tell aspiring novelists one thing, what would it be?
Write as worship aka use your talent for God and stay teachable. I guess that’s two things. LOL! One practical, one spiritual.

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])
Oh! What a FUN question. I would definitely want to be in charge of the talent show as it would be a total hoot. I’d invite ALL of my writer friends and hope that we don’t have so many it would sink the ship. LOL!

Knowing how many writer friends you have, we might at least make it float low in the water. Tell us about the featured book.
The Doctor’s Devotion is book one in a new medical miniseries, called Eagle Point Emergency which features a former military medical combat team who come back after deployment to open a trauma center in a needy rural community.

Here’s the back cover blurb for The Doctor’s Devotion:

A Doctor’s Vow

When he fled Eagle Point years ago, former air force trauma surgeon Mitch Wellington left only broken dreams behind. Now he’s back with a new dream—opening a trauma center in the rural area and saving lives. He hopes to hire the quick-thinking nurse who impressed him during an emergency. But Lauren Bates lost her faith and doesn’t believe she deserves to help anyone.

Mitch knows firsthand what loss feels like. And it’ll take all his devotion to show Lauren that sometimes the best medicine is a combination of faith, community—and love.

Eagle Point Emergency:
Saving lives—and losing their hearts—in a small Illinois town.


Please give us the first page of the book.


"Change of plans, carrottop."
Suitcase in tow, Lauren Bates smiled at Grandpa Lem's voice coming through her cell phone. "What, you're picking me up in your tractor?" She exited Refuge Airport. Southern Illinois welcomed her with breezy warmth and a bouquet of bright June colors she wasn't accustomed to in Texas.
Lem chuckled. "Ought to since you haven't come to see me in five years."
Guilt whooshed in like planes on runways nearby. "I know, Grandpa. I'm sorry. What's this plan change?"
"Accompany me to the ribbon-cutting of a new trauma center Doc Wellington founded at Eagle Point? Starts in half an hour."
Anxiety knotted her gut. Not only was she weary hearing about Dr. Wellington, a medical facility was the last place she wanted to be. She sighed. "For you, Grandpa, I'll endure it."
"Good. We're in a blue Dodge Ram. See you in a few."
"We?" She maneuvered past people cluttering the sidewalk.
"Yes. Dr. Wellington's helping me pick you up."
"Why would you need help?" Lauren canvassed curbside cars and spotted a spiffy blue truck near the front.
"I don't drive on streets anymore. Only fields."
Alarm slowed her steps. "Why not?"
