Purchase:  A Lily Blooms

Lillian never dared to dream that James could be hers. Now, five years after she stopped his wedding, she must face him again. She’s compared every suiter to James. No longer a child, Lillian does her best to avoid the handsome divorcee, but he has other ideas.

Secrets long buried must be revealed to for James to see what he’s been missing, and for Lily to see her own desires. At the Little Red Chapel in Cutter’s Creek, Montana, Lillian will discover that the heart sometimes speaks without thought, but the whispers of the Spirit can guide them.

Kari says...

If you could travel in time would you go forward or back? 
I would go back in time to see how people really lived. You can do your homework and read history but it will always be skewed by the author. I’d love to see it through my own lens.

Audrey Norris is worried but determined. Her life has taken a drastic turn. A short year ago, she was a happily married woman with a young daughter and a warm, cozy home. Now she’s a widow responsible for her daughter, her mother, and a big fat mortgage she didn’t even know about. She can’t pay the house note and she doesn’t have a job. Her options are few and mostly undesirable.

Widower Caleb Jefferson is the successful blacksmith in the town of Cutter’s Creek, Montana. His sister has been fussing after him to get married again, but he’s dodged her arguments. He finally sees that his daughter needs a mother. However, he’d been in love before and that ended in disaster and heartbreak. He has no desire to fall in love again, so he’s hoping he can find a woman who will agree to his terms.

When Audrey and Caleb end up together, everyone around them is delighted that their families are joining. Caleb tries to make it work, but he can’t seem to let go and move on with his life.

Audrey worries and prays every day that a breakthrough will come. God is taking His time. In the meantime, the family grows closer while Caleb drifts further away.

One simple misunderstanding will break the fragile balance they’ve created. Will this be the end of their relationship or the beginning of a lifetime of love?

Annie says...

Favorite place you’ve traveled to?
I absolutely love the beach. Almost any beach. I feel so relaxed and at peace listening to the waves crash on the shore. I collect mementos from every beach I go to and keep them all in a large glass jar. I always bring at least one shell, piece of sea glass, or rock home and put it in that jar. I’ve been doing this for more than 20 years. I’ve been to beaches in Europe and all over the US. My favorite beach so far is Gulf Shores, Alabama. The bonus is that this beach is only a six-hour drive from my house.

Jack Carlson spied for the union army for four, long years and what did he get for his trouble? Blindness. Battered by the war and lost without his sight, he seeks refuge in Cutter’s Creek, Montana. There he hopes to heal his bitter heart. But he’s going to need a lot more help than what he can come up with. His cousin, the local preacher, thinks so too and sends off for a mail-order bride for him, praying a wife will do the trick.

Willow Bennett has been in love with the same man all her life. As a young girl she followed Jack Carlson and his friends until they managed to out run her. As a young woman…well, a girl can dream, can’t she? Imagine her surprise when she becomes a mail-order bride and discovers Jack is her intended! That’s not the only surprise she gets in this story of forgiveness, hope and love.

Kit says...

If your book became a movie, who would you cast for your main characters?   
This is a question I get asked A LOT, as I tend to write cinematically. Okay, for Jack Carlson I’d cast Aiden Turner, and for Willow let’s go with Abigail Breslin.

Sarah Songan is a woman on the run.

In an attempt to find peace with their neighbors, the Apsáalooke chief has promised her hand to a soldier at Fort Smith, and Sarah’s determined not to be traded or bartered like an ornament. She strikes out on her own, leaving behind everyone and everything she has ever known. However, a woman travelling alone in 1866 Montana territory can fall prey to unscrupulous men. Sarah must confront her fears and draw on an inner strength she didn’t know she had, as well as a new-found hope in God, if she is to survive.

Bill Hanover is a tired and lonely cowboy. After four long years fighting in the War Between the States, he returns to his family ranch in Montana only to discover it’s no longer his home. He heads south to Cutter’s Creek, where he encounters a beautiful woman whose feisty spirit takes his breath away. But she’s hiding a secret, and her past is about to catch up with her. Bill turns to God for help and guidance, and encounters a new kind of love.

Set in beautiful, wild, and untamed nineteenth century Montana, this novella will take you on a journey back in time to the perilous life of a pioneer on the western frontier.

 Favorite season
My favorite season is winter. In Brisbane, Australia, winter time is beautiful. It’s usually about seventy degrees during the day, and then dips down at night. You can even go swimming at the beach in winter sometimes. And you can definitely get away with wearing shorts, t-shirts and thongs (which are flip flops, not underwear!), except on the coldest days. Although I always look forward to jeans weather. The sky is blue, the sun is shining, and the air is crisp and sweet. It’s a wonderful time of year.
