GOING HOME - Leann Harris - One Free Book

Welcome back, Leann. 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?
My publisher,  Forget Me Not Romances. And my critique partner, Kathy Wall.

If you teach or speak. What’s coming up on your calendar?   
I haven’t done  much of anything recently. I’ve had cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  With this book, I’m up and running again.

And I’m thrilled to see that, dear friend. If you had to completely start over in another place, where would you move, and why?
I’d go back to where I grew up, Denver.  I miss seeing the mountains. You were never lost if you could see them.

I grew up in the Ozark Mountains, and I’ve always felt that way about them. If you could only tell aspiring novelists one thing, what would it be?
Write because it’s your passion, because you can’t live without telling the stories in your head. If you want money, fame, you’ll be disappointed.

Tell us about the featured book.
Melissa Danner is the second child of a large family, the first daughter. She has brothers and sisters, but once her mother is killed in an accident (right before the book begins) she is the driving force that gets the family back on feet. Her love interest is Nathan Winters, her older brother’s best friend growing up. When they meet again at the rodeo in Denver, sparks fly. They are attracted to each other. Missy doesn’t want the change and to prove nothing has changed, she kisses Nate. Her plan backfires on her big time. It was a fun book to write.

It sounds like a fun one. Please give us the first page of the book.
January, Denver
Melissa Danner hurried around the outer hall of the Denver Coliseum looking for seating Section XX where her family’s seats were located.

“Next up is barrel racing, and we have some sharp and eager ladies wanting to show their talent.” The announcement vibrated in the hall.

“Hurry up, Tony.” Missy glared at the footwear her co-worker had chosen for his first time at the rodeo--loafers without socks. Her breakup with her long-time fiancĂ© had left her vulnerable to Tony’s quest for a date. He’d been asking for months.

“I’m trying, but I’ve got something in my shoe.” He limped toward her.

“We’re almost to the right section. According to the signs, we’re one more entrance over.”

“I want you to give a good Colorado welcome for our first contest, Julie Long, from Mesa, Arizona,” the announcer continued.

“We don’t have time. Let’s go inside and I’ll locate my family.” She helped Tony climb the stairs. They emerged into the bright lights of the arena just as the first rider finished.

“Miss Julie’s score is 17 seconds. Next up is Carol Jones out of Oklahoma City.”

Missy spotted her family in the next section. They took up the entire row. First in line was her father. Behind him sat Nathan Winters, her oldest brother’s best friend.
