Welcome, Beth. I just read this book this week. I absolutely loved it. This is the type of fast-paced suspense that keeps me turning pages. I can hardly wait for the next one. What are some of the spiritual themes you like to write about?
Forgiveness always seems to pop up, along with putting the past behind you. In Treacherous Skies, something came up that completely surprised me—my character feels like she is having to pay for the sins of her father—she’s running from a past she didn’t create.
What other books of yours are coming out soon?
HEARTS IN THE MIST (Heartsong) released in October, RIPTIDE (LIS), the sequel to TREACHEROUS SKIES, releases in July 2013, and the third book in December. Also in the fall of 2013, LOVE IN THE AIR, my hot-air balloon story releases with Heartsong Presents.

I’d love to spend an evening with my friend Lisa Harris in her home in
We communicate frequently online and get to see each other once a year, maybe.
I’d love to experience a day in her life, spend it with her where she lives.
I’m with you on that. Wouldn’t it be fun if we both could go visit her at the same time? What historical person would you like to meet (besides Jesus) and why?
Maybe Amy Carmichael—missionary to
India. I read a biography about her
and was amazed at her great faith and her tenacity, her ability to endure
hardships in a foreign country.
How can you encourage authors who have been receiving only rejections from publishers?
I always enjoy visiting websites that list all the rejections received by big name authors. That puts everything into perspective when you realize that every single writer receives rejections.

Something was wrong.
That meant he probably wasn't going to show. She'd spent a lifetime trying to escape her heritage, but he'd sounded so sincere on the phone two weeks ago—the first contact since she was five—when he shared that he was terminally ill and wanted to see her one last time.
