Describe yourself in three words:
wife, mother, writer
Tell us a little about your latest release:
Right Time for Love (to be released March 2015)
Blurb:  Indecision marked Gavin’s brow as they stared into each other’s eyes. If he walked off, the friendship would be over… shattered like a cheap piece of glass. They would still see each other at times, but the closeness wouldn’t exist anymore, and that’s what Brandy treasured the most.
He lifted a hand to her face, a sad smile tilting the corner of his lips. “I’m twenty-nine-years-old, and so help me, I’ve never met anyone like you.”
She blinked. “So… Is that good or bad?”
His forehead dropped to hers. A slight chuckle eased the tension. “I’m still trying to decide.”
Taking his reply to mean maybe, she slid an arm around his waist and guided him inside. “Come on, I’ll see if I can’t sway your opinion.”
Inspiration for the story: My mother had a series of TIAs and I love the beach. When I started writing the story, the two came together so naturally I decided to go with it.
What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory is Christmas when I was either three or four. I was sure the new baby doll I found hidden in a closet belonged to me. When I showed it to Mama, she put the doll back and said it was for my younger sister. Needless to say, I was very disappointed when my present that year was dishes. But the next year, I got the doll and she got the dishes.
What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?

When I accepted Christ as my savior was the greatest moment of my life. God has given me more blessings than I deserve, a loving husband, wonderful children and grandchildren. He's also allowed me to fulfill my lifelong dream of being an author.
What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?

My husband is a double cancer survivor, lung and neck. Watching helplessly while he endured the extensive surgeries, radiation, and chemo was heartbreaking.
What have you learned in life so far?

I've learned it's never too late to fulfill a dream. I didn't publish my first book, Hidden Hills, until after I retired. It would have been easy to say I was to old, but I didn't give up.
Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?

Walt Disney, Erma Bombeck, James Garner,  Barbara Bush, and Tom Selleck. I think it would be an interesting and entertaining dinner.
