COWGIRLS DON'T CRY
by Debra Lynn Collins
Debra Lynn Collins is an Amazon Best Selling Author. She was born and raised in Georgia, but moved to Gaylesville, Alabama after marrying her real-life hero, Steve, in 1981. She considers herself a Georgiabamian.
Not only has God blessed her with a wonderful husband, but He's also blessed her with four wonderful children, and as of right now seven precious grandchildren. She’s also a member of ACFW.
Welcome, Debra, if you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be?
I would have dinner with my daughter who passed away in 2000. To be able to see her smiling face and hear her beautiful laugh again, would be the best gift ever.
What fun or unique things can you tell us about yourself?
I have tried my hand at many, many different kinds of crafts. Some were successful, and some weren’t.
I love singing Karaoke. So much so, that my husband and I purchased our own Karaoke system a few years ago.
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
Gatlinburg, Tennessee. There’s just something amazing about those spectacular and breathtaking mountains. Whenever we have the opportunity to get away for a weekend, you can always find us in Tennessee.
What is your favorite Bible verse?
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?
Recently, it has been at the kitchen table or the end of my sofa. However, right now, I am in the process of converting a (now) empty bedroom into my office.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Cowgirls Don’t Cry.
Sami Lawson’s scars run deep, and she trusts no one. Ever
since her mother abandoned her family when she was ten, Sami has watched her father grow cold and bitter from a broken heart.
The one question she cannot shake is: Where is God through all this? To her wounded heart, the only answer she can find is: He is not. As Sami gets to know Chase, her walls start to come down, which frightens her. Can she trust this man who seems so sincere? Or will he abandon her just like her mother did?
After hearing rumors about Sami, Chase Townsend expected a “man-eater” of a woman, especially with a nickname like “Wild Cat.” Instead, he is stunned by the beauty with the sparkling blue eyes.
However, Chase quickly figures out that something has happened to Sami, and he has to decide if he is willing to try to help her overcome her bitterness or if he should just let the “Wildcat” be. Because of Chase’s deep trust in God, and his strong perseverance streak, he makes it his mission to show Sami that God loves her, and only He can heal her broken past.
Now that Chase has made it his business to witness to Sami, he finds himself falling in love. Will his heart be broken when Sami pushes him away?
What takeaway value do you want your readers to have?
First and most importantly, I want them to know that no matter what we may go through in life, we have a God that CAN AND WILL always heal our brokenness and pain. Also, it’s my hope that my book will touch the hearts of the readers, and they will laugh, cry, and cheer Sami and Chase on as they find their way into each other’s hearts.
