It’s the third and final book in my Sisters by Choice series. Redemption brings the series full circle and gives closure for those who’ve read all three books. Jamie is the missing twin in the first book-DECEPTION. And in REDEMPTION, we come to learn more about Jamie and her spiritual struggles. But the main story is about a missing child who Jamie is determined to find—no matter the danger to herself.
How long did it take you to write Redemption?
I don’t know for sure, but I would say the first draft took 5 or 6 weeks, then another month or so for editing and polishing it up before I sent it to my publisher.
Wow that is fast. Was there a particular scene that you especially enjoyed, and why does this scene stick out to you?
Oh my! There are too many to pick just one, but I do love the opening scene where my main character (Jamie) is arguing with her twin sister! It was fun to write.
If you could be any character in your book, which one would you be and why?
I’d just as soon be the twin sister who stays home. I’m not anywhere near as adventurous as my characters are! That’s why I stay home and create all sorts of problems for them.
In what time of year is your story set? Is there any particular reason you choose that season or holiday?
It’s set in the summer. I picked the summer because my main character has a daughter so I put her in summer camp while her mother is off trying to save the world—again!
Great thinking! Do you write in any other genres?
This book is romantic suspense but I also write suspense as well.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Exactly what I write—mystery; suspense; and romantic suspense.
How to you like to spend the holidays?
I have a small enclosed porch that we clear off in the fall and then set up the Christmas trees! Last year we had an even dozen of them. That’s right, twelve Christmas trees—all different sizes. It was a lot of fun.
That sounds pretty. I have to do an artificial tree because three of us in my house are all allergic to the trees.
Please tell us one thing about yourself that may surprise your readers.
Well…I was diagnosed with bilateral brain tumors in 2012. So as I wrote this story, I was dealing with all sorts of “issues.” I feel incredibly blessed that God gave me the opportunity and the ability to keep writing during this time.
It amazes me that you were able to work through that. I hope you are going to be okay. What is next for you?
The second and third books in my Deadly Communications series should be released next year—Deadly Intent and Deadly Silence. The series features a speech pathologist who seems to get hers.
