Welcome, Linda. What was the main inspiration for this series of books?
All three books in this series are love stories set in the late 1700s. The Rebel series was inspired by the stories of the American patriots who fought to be free from the dictatorship and tyranny of a king. It’s a theme that is dear to me. Liberty is something that I cherish. It’s a precious gift given to us by those who fought so valiantly. When I read the stories of the American Revolution, my heart swells with gratitude for those loyal patriots. When I look at our flag and pledge allegiance to it, tears well up in my eyes. When I listen to "The Star Spangled Banner" or "God Bless the U.S.A.," I get choked up. Especially when it’s sung by a choir.
Had the idea been on your mind for a while or just popped into it one day?
I had the idea of a country that had to fight for its liberty and the idea stayed in my mind for a long time. I had read stories of how America got its freedom and how determined we were. I was touched with each incident that I read. We fought for our freedom from 1775 – 1783. The miracles that happened during that war made me realize that God was watching over us.
Why do you feel compelled to write in your genre?
The Rebel series is a mixture of romance and adventure. I absolutely love stories that are page-turners, which have some mystery and suspense. I love a romance where the man and woman know they are meant for one another and have a strong belief in God. Even though there are trials along the way, they never give up on the other. I also like strong women characters in a story. I hope my readers will take away with them a satisfied feeling of what it is like to fight for their liberty and enjoy a land of the free.
