Sauce for the Goose by D.A. Featherling
Kissing Frogs by D.A. Featherling


Our guest blogger is D.A. Featherling, author of Sauce for the Goose and Kissing Frogs. Dorothy writes in several genres including mystery, romantic comedy, futuristic suspense, and romance. She has published two books to date and has several more in process. She co-founded the CenTex Chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and served as its president for four years.



From D.A. Featherling:
I’m actually covering two books in the same series today. They are romantic comedies – one of the genres I love to write. I developed the “Second Time Around” series several years ago, believing there is an interest in stories about folks who have had a broken relationship due to death, divorce, or other circumstances. Many men and women have this happen today – in fact, we’ve probably all been there at one time or another (especially those ‘other circumstances’).

Even though the series does not continue with the same characters in each book, the premise is applied to all the books – either through a female or male character.
Book 1 is Sauce for the Goose – Here’s the back cover copy:

“The girl has got to go!

To save her son from a romantic mistake, Laurel Edmonds renews some former relationships of her own. Complications abound when new beau Mike Hudson is added to the mix.

Her romantic dilemmas, her plot to save her son, and worries about her mother, aka the Bus Queen, force Laurel to cope with a fake engagement gone real, a surprise wedding, and a confession she never imagined she’d have to make.”

Book 2 in the series is Kissing Frogs – Back cover copy:

“Until she decides to look for a husband, Em Snider is so-o-o-o in control of her life. But her trip on the internet matchmaking highway soon shows her that she can’t control the journey.

Her first encounter is a warning. There are toads out there! A Christian internet matchmaking service provides Em a chance to discover Prince Charming, if she can survive the shocks.

Em is soon ready to quit, or will true love still come about in a way she never dreamed if she’ll quit stepping on the brakes and let God be in control?”

Both books have a surprise ending (at least I hope it’s a surprise) that readers will hopefully enjoy.

At the moment, I have a manuscript out for critique for Book 1 of a new mystery series I’m writing – the Staged for Murder Series. The series takes home stager Ari Ames and places her in precarious circumstances, complete with dead bodies, as she pursues her staging career. Book 1 is Murder Outside the Box.

I’m also editing two other books – Book 3 in the Second Time Around Series – Double Trouble, and Book 1, entitled Time Out, of the Out of Time Series (a futuristic suspense series).

In my spare time (what spare time?) I tend to pick up a book.  Seriously, there isn’t a whole lot of spare time…but my first choice for a pastime is always reading! (No surprise there?) I try to read in my genres and also re-read some of the classics I’ve enjoyed over the years. Some of those bygone authors told a great story so I can learn from them as well as be entertained.

I also like to spend time with my going-on-9-year-old grandson when possible and with my sisters who all live fairly close by.

Fans can find me on the internet. I have a website and it will keep everyone informed of what I’m working on and what’s published and when.

I’m also on Facebook - please ‘like’ my author page for continuing up-to-date info about what’s going on.

Thanks for having me today. I’ll be happy to let the winner of the drawing choose whichever of the two books they’d like to haveSauce for the Goose or Kissing Frogs.
