UNDER PRAIRIE SKIES
by Cynthia Roemer
Welcome, Cynthia. What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book?
The theme verse for Under Prairie Skies is Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” I want readers to come away with a sense that the Lord is able to use them and others to speak His truths into people’s hearts and draw them closer to Him. Both my hero and heroine have shortcomings they need to overcome. Throughout the story, God uses them to challenge each other to rise above those inadequacies and become the individuals God desires them to be.
How do people react when they find out you write?
Most are stunned. Though close friends and church family have known for years that I write short stories and articles for Christian publications, I’ve sort of kept my dream of novel writing under wrap. I live in a small community where everyone knows everyone, so once word got out, I became a sort of novelty. LOL! A very strange feeling for this quiet country gal!
Do you type or write by hand? Computer? Typewriter? Legal pad?
I write almost exclusively at my computer, but if a scene or inspiration hits while the computer is off for the night or I’m at my part-time day job (which happens quite often), then I pull out the pen and paper and jot down the dialog or scene that strikes me and type it up later.
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? Mountains
Y’all or You Guys? You Guys
Biscuits or Dinner Roll? Dinner roll, if homemade
Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Fall, with spring a close second
Laptop or Desktop? Desktop, though I would love a laptop to take outside
Mug or teacup? Neither, I’m a water drinker
Please tell us a little about your novel, Under Prairie Skies.
Beyond shattered dreams lies a realm of possibilities
Unsettled by the news that her estranged cousin and uncle are returning home after a year away, Charlotte Stanton goes to ready their cabin and finds a handsome stranger has taken up residence. Convinced he’s a squatter, she throws him off the property before learning his full identity. Little does she know, their paths are destined to cross again.
Quiet and ruggedly handsome, Chad Avery’s uncanny ability to see through Charlotte’s feisty exterior and expose her inner weaknesses both infuriates and intrigues her. When a tragic accident incites her family to move east, Charlotte stays behind in hopes of becoming better acquainted with the elusive cattleman. Yet Chad’s unwillingness to divulge his hidden past, along with his vow not to love again, threatens to keep them apart forever.

Any parting comment?
Thanks so much for hosting me, Jo. It has truly been a pleasure. I’m looking forward to sharing an e-book copy of Under Prairie Skies with one of our readers. If you’ve not yet had the chance to read Book 1: Under This Same Sky, I encourage you to read it ahead of this second book. You’ll have a better understanding of the characters and plot-line if you do. It’s my prayer that readers will be blessed by both Becky and Charlotte’s stories.
Leave a question you’d like readers to answer. (Commenters not required to answer the question to be entered in book drawing.)
