The upcoming Ladies of Legend novella CROSSROADS is a contemporary story set in the little town of Legend, Tennessee. As reviewers for our boxed set LOVE IN A SMALL TOWN repeated said “… I hope there are more,” after reading the nine books of the boxed set, Jan Scarbrough, Magdalena Scott, Maddie James, and myself decided to write one more each, immediately, in appreciation of the overwhelming good tidings from our readership. I had to stop writing another book that will be out later this year to do this, so it is definitely a labor of love.
CROSSROADS is about the woman who was a teenage girl in the very first book of the Ladies of Legend series. Her reputation was less than sterling when she left Legend, Tennessee all those years ago. But now, brought back by desperation, obligation, and an inheritance she never expected, she has to face her past and the people in it, then she plans to get out of town as quickly as possible. Her plans change when she finds herself falling for the new doctor in town, but she must decide if blossoming love is strong enough to defeat the darkest secret of her past once it suddenly comes to light.
This novella, Sins of the Father, is inspired by the classic tale Sleeping Beauty. Just like that Princess, Aurora’s life doesn’t really begin until her heart is awakened by a handsome struggling artist (her prince). But, with her life in danger, Aurora must hide who she really is. Unbeknownst to her, her struggling artist isn’t who he appears to be either…. Is he friend, lover, or foe? Her very life may depend on which Phillip turns out to be.
8. Who would play your leading man if your next book gets picked up by Hollywood?
Channing Tatum – I think his versatile acting and looks would fit the hero perfectly, and frankly, if I was a few decades younger….
9. Best advice you’ve gotten as a writer?
Write what you love to read.
