TO GAIN A BODYGUARD
by Tanya Eavenson
Welcome, Tanya. What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book?
I want to show a transparency of a faith-filled life through my characters Brice and Madi. How, like us, their struggles with insecurities, human failings, and the need for redemption ultimately turn them to the Lord for guidance and strength. Because as we all know, this world isn’t perfect, we aren’t perfect, but we know the One who is.
How do people react when they find out you write?
People are normally surprised when they find out, but it has opened many doors for me to speak at writing groups and women retreats. I love meeting new people and sharing what the Lord has put on my heart to write.
Do you type or write by hand? Computer? Typewriter? Legal pad?
Oh, great question! I love doing both, typing on my laptop, and writing by hand. When I write by hand, I use regular spiral notebooks that I purchase at the beginning of each school year while they’re on sale. I stock up!
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? Mountains
Y’all or You Guys? Y’all
Biscuits or Dinner Roll? Biscuits. Yum!
Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Definitely fall. I love the change of temperatures and the beauty of the leaves.
Laptop or Desktop? Laptop. It’s hard for me to stay in one place.
Mug or teacup? Mug, filled with coffee.
Please tell us a little about your novel, To Gain a Bodyguard.
Undercover ICE agent Madi Reynolds has spent years
infiltrating a human-trafficking ring, but when her life is threatened, she is forced to walk away and advised to leave the country. Undeterred, she continues her plan to attend her brother’s Christmas wedding, with her partner assigned as her bodyguard. But after seeing Brice care for her niece, she finds it's more than her life that needs protecting. Is there really any defense for the heart?
War Veteran and ICE agent Brice Johnson has been defending his country and American lives for as long as he can remember. Now, he faces the biggest assignment of his life--protect the woman he loves. He's never been one to run from a fight, but when an old flame butts in expecting a second chance with Madi, and crippling visions of war call out to him, he begins to wonder if surrender is an option after all.
