SOLVE BY CHRISTMAS

Welcome, Amber, what is your favorite season?
I can’t make up my mind as to whether I like fall or Christmas season better. Christmas season is so wonderful with all the decorations, the carols, the lights, the Christmas movies and stories, the merriness of the season, the peppermint, the get togethers with the people you love, the openness that people have to Christ during this time of year…what’s not to like? And fall leads right into that. I also love how beautiful it is, even though everything is dying off for the winter. It reminds me that there is a beauty in death. A beauty only God can show. And a promise of resurrection.
Would you rather go to the future or go to the past?
Oh, the past for sure! I grew up wishing there was a real life Imagination Station that I could hop into and travel back in time. There are so many events I would have loved to see, from Jesus walking the earth, to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, to the faith of General Lee, to the character of Abe Lincoln. Goodness, what fun it would be!
Are you a fast writer or a slow writer?
I feel like I’m a really slow writer. But I have been working on getting faster. My top speed is about 1,000 words per hour, but I usually average around 700.
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? I visited the Vancouver area this year. They have both. Now I am spoiled. 😉
Y’all or You Guys? Mostly ya’ll, though I do tend to use both since I spend a lot of time in Colorado and the South.
Biscuits or Dinner Roll? Dinner roll. Especially if the rolls are from Lamberts.
Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Fall
Laptop or Desktop? Laptop. I just got a new one. His name is Enoch and I’m hoping he will fulfill his name and never die on me.
Mug or teacup? Mug. Ain’t enough room for coffee in a teacup.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Solve by Christmas.
When sabotage threatens the Rudin Sugar Factory, Detective Jasper Hollock believes this will be his first
real case. But dear Mr. Rudin—the only father Jasper has ever known—holds a different assignment for his private investigator.
“I’ve struck a deal with God, Jasper, and you’re my angel.”
Mr. Rudin charges Jasper to build a “case” of reasons for his employer to continue his life. If he fails, Mr. Rudin will end it in suicide on Christmas night.
As the incidents at the factory become life threatening, Jasper’s attempts at dissuading Mr. Rudin prove futile, and Jasper is left staring at the stark reality of his own soul. Time is ticking. Jasper must solve both cases by Christmas before Mr. Rudin, the company, and Jasper’s faith, are dragged to perdition. Will this be the Christmas Jasper truly discovers what makes life worth living?
