Welcome, Gail. What do you enjoy doing for relaxation?
Traveling is my favorite way to relax even though I’m on the go sightseeing, but it’s different, especially if it’s a place I’ve never been. But daily at home, I relax in different ways. One is to exercise for thirty minutes on my recumbent bicycle. Often I watch the Home and Garden TV channel since I enjoy decorating. I feel exhilarated from burning a few calories and it also stimulates my mind and offers the perfect idea for my novel. But two other ways happen in the evening if I’m not heading to a rehearsal. I love to read and try to squeeze in a few pages of a novel or I watch a movie, the old classics or modern movies with suspense or romance (such as Hallmark). Occasionally we rent a movie from On Demand.
What do you enjoy about writing?
I enjoy bringing ideas to life through flawed characters and well-paced stories To me, my novels are modern day parables that bring answers and truths to readers. I love hearing from readers who have been touched and motivated by the message or truth they find in the story.
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it a success?
I am thrilled when readers tell others about my latest book or any of my books. Word of mouth is the best form of support. I’m also pleased when readers share some of my Facebook posts about anything, especially if they share their enjoyment of my newest book. Another big form of support it to leave reviews on the major online bookstores who sell my books.
Please tell us a little about your novel, A Husband For Christmas.
A Husband For Christmas is the second novel in the
Lilac Circle series. Lilac Circle is a fictitious cul de sac in the real town of Owosso, Michigan. Readers have met a number of Lilac Circle’s residents and their goings-on and will meet new ones as well, some wise, some nosy, some struggling and some happy and falling in love. Each novel will revolve around a character or two who live on the neighborly small town street.
The back cover information says:
The Bachelor Next Door - Spending her holidays in picturesque Lilac Circle, Michigan, is the perfect place for Nina Jerome to start anew. She's determined to put her painful divorce in the past and focus on the future. She hadn't planned on being distracted by her sweet neighbor, Doug Billings. The successful businessman and temporary dad is clueless when it comes to taking care of his little niece. Getting help from Nina is the perfect setup—but something about the pretty new nanny makes him think about the unthinkable: having a wife and a family of his own. Can he convince Nina that she's worthy of a second chance at love—just in time for Christmas?
