FLAWLESS
BY JUNE FOSTER


June Foster
June Foster is an award-winning author who began her writing career in an RV roaming around the USA with her husband, Joe. She brags about visiting a location before it becomes the setting in her contemporary romances. June's characters find themselves in precarious circumstances where only God can offer redemption and ultimately freedom.


Welcome, June. Readers, please enjoy the following article by June Foster about her writing the Woodlyn series.

Thank you for featuring me and my three books, the Woodlyn series, on your blog today, Jo. I can't wait to tell you the story behind the first book because it launched me into my journey as a writer. 

After I retired from teaching, I took up scrapbooking, card making, and traveling in our RV. But God had something very different in mind. One day I noticed a story lurking in my mind. I could see the characters and even the setting. This was very strange as creativity has not been one of my strong points, and I had never wanted to write—much less fiction.

I visited with my daughter one day and happened to tell her the story. Her eyes brightened and she said she thought I should write the story. I threw my hands up in the air as I'd never written fiction. But, her comment was the spark the Lord used to set me on my way. A strong desire consumed me. I realized I couldn't not write it.

But where to start? I ordered all the "how to" books I could find on Amazon, joined ACFW, and dove in. The going wasn't easy, and I daresay, still isn't. But God has guided me every step. I even asked Him for confirmation that this was His will. I got at least ten assurances that God wanted me to write the stories He put in my heart. One conformation being my husband's change of heart. At first, he thought I'd lost my mind. Now I can't ask for a more supportive person. 

To date, I've got seventeen books and novellas published. I've worked with three different small publishing houses and my novella A Harvest of Blessing will be out soon. 


Book 2
But back to the Woodlyn series. Though Flawless, book one, wasn't my first book published, it was the story God put in my heart ten years ago when I began to write. After Flawless, two more books were born: Out of Control and All Things New. We continue to meet Jess Colton and Holly Harrison,
the hero and heroine of Flawless, in the next two
Book 3
books as well as some new characters. (other 2 covers here?)


The Lord has led me to write about struggles Christians deal with and how they find victory through God's power and His Word.

I hope you'll love the Woodlyn series as much as I.

Please tell us a little about Flawless, Book 1 in the Woodlyn series.
When man sees two broken lives, God sees them flawless. 

Though Jess Colton gave his life to the Lord, he held onto an old habit. Fueled by alcohol, he spent a night with a girl from his past, defying his Christian principles. When he quit drinking to honor God, he discovered another addiction. Now he can't manage his own life as his weight soars and diabetes threatens to claim him. Jess is baffled when the beautiful Holly Harrison declares her love.

Holly Harrison lived to please herself. But everything caught up with her in one moment of time when a destructive motorcycle accident altered her life forever. Nowhere else to turn, she looked to God for answers. Now, she's convinced no Christian man would be attracted to her. She doesn’t plan on falling in love with the handsome Jess Colton seeing past his bulk to the godly, tender man within. When Jess drives a wedge between them, she loses hope of a future together.

Can Holly overcome her handicap? Can Jess find control over his eating and his life? Only God has the answer.

A HOME FOR FRITZ
BY JUNE FOSTER


June Foster
June Foster is an award-winning author who began her writing career in an RV roaming around the USA with her husband, Joe. She brags about visiting a location before it becomes the setting in her contemporary romances. June's characters find themselves in precarious circumstances where only God can offer redemption and ultimately freedom.

Please enjoy the following excerpt from the beginning of A Home for Fritz by June Foster.

At the clearing near a forest of towering Douglas fir, Brooke Cantrell drew in a long breath of Wyoming air and slowly exhaled. Bushes with red spindly flowers grew in clumps, dotting the open space where she stood. On the northern horizon, the Big Horn Mountains ascended high into the sky, more imposing than any Dallas skyscraper.

A howl charged the air.

Dog? Or wolf? She held the next breath and stood as still as the Indian Paintbrush on the windless day, listening. Had she imagined it?

Rowff. Rowff. Yap. Oww.

A swell of pain pummeled her chest. Only a wounded animal could vocalize such a woeful pitch. What if it was dying? No. She gripped a strand of hair and yanked.

Driven by childhood memories of loss, she crept forward, ignoring all caution. Death had won too many rounds in her life.

Where had the sound come from? The left, the right, straight ahead? She stopped.

Yow, yap.

She darted toward the cops of evergreens. Over another rise in the landscape, a pungent odor, like turpentine assaulted Brooke's nose. She sidestepped the sagebrush growing close to the ground as she skulked toward the mournful cries. She skirted the pond, complete with beavers' dam, then scaled the rising countryside to the forest.

The wail grew more desperate.

What if a dangerous animal waited within the trees? Brooke's knees locked. She had no self-defense skills. Moose and savage wolves didn't exactly roam big-city neighborhoods. She should scramble to safety.

No, what if a wounded pup needed help? One of the working dogs at Sunlight Peaks Guest Ranch? Yet, no amount of help could've saved Rowdy all those years ago—her dog Daddy brought home when Mama died. His furry presence and warm cuddles had seen her through many a lonely day. Rubbing her eyes didn't erase the stinging.

Now at the tree line, she navigated around a couple of fir trees, guided by the sound's source then gasped.

A short distance into the forest, a golden doodle, its paw in an iron trap, writhed and wiggled, then whined and gawked with pitiful eyes.

"Oh, doggie. I'm so sorry." What should she do? She angled a desperate glance in the direction of the ranch, but no one strolled the path. She dared a few cautious steps nearer the dog. In an instinctive urge to comfort the creature, she reached to ruffle its fur then jerked her hand away. The dog might not understand and bite her.

Instead, she lifted her palm in a stop signal. She had to take action. "Just hang on, little guy. I'll find someone to help."

Brooke raced toward the clearing, heart pounding. Not because she dashed in and out of the dense trees but anguish gripped her insides. A suffering animal would continue in pain until she found aid. 

The pathetic creature barked as if to call, "Don't leave me."

She glanced over her shoulder and lowered her voice, hoping to soothe the animal. "It's okay. I'll be back."

Clomp, clomp.

Someone or something tramped toward her on the other side of a stand of elms. Never mind. She had to keep going.

Whack.

Brooke's body met a rock wall head-on. She blinked and gazed into eyes the color of spring leaves.   

"Oof." The guy in jeans and a Stetson reached to steady her. "Didn't expect anyone to be out here." He exhaled a breath through puckered lips.

Brooke huffed, the lack of breath impeding her words, and pointed into the woods. "A dog. In a trap. Over there. Golden doddle."

"Oh, no." He scrubbed his hand over his mouth and dashed along the path.

Welcome, June. Please tell us a little about your novel, A Home for Fritz.
All Brooke Cantrell wants is two weeks to live Brooke Radcliff's life. But the one person who knows the truth resides in the room next to hers at Sunlight Peaks Guest Ranch. When Brooke falls in love with the handsome wrangler who works on the ranch, will her employer's daughter tell him the truth Brooke hides?

Garrett Bowman has finally found peace under Wyoming skies at Sunrise Peaks Guest Ranch. Never again will he return to the demanding corporate life in Seattle, Washington. But will the guests recognize him from the incriminating newspaper and magazine articles eighteen months ago?

When Garrett's dog, Fritz, is in grave danger, an intriguing guest helps Garrett get his golden doodle to the vet. As Fritz heals, he whines and begs until he can lay his head in Brooke Radcliff's comfortable lap. Fritz has fallen in love, but so has Garrett.

If Garrett discovers Brook's secret, will he walk away from her?

If Brooke learns Garrett's true identify, will she turn from him like all the others?

WHISPERING HOPE
BY PEGGY BLANN PHIFER


Peggy Blann Phifer
Peggy Blann Phifer was born in Upstate New York but never lived there. But she has lived in Connecticut, Florida, Arkansas, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, and now back in Wisconsin.

Peg has three published books to her name: To See the Sun, romantic suspense; Somehow, Christmas Will Come, women’s fiction; and Whispering Hope, historical romantic suspense, and is currently working on a novella series titled Sweetwater River, also women’s fiction.

Peg has been a member of American Christian Fiction Writers since 2001. When she’s not writing, Peg enjoys reading, blogging, playing challenging word games on her Kindle, and sharing her home with her daughter, son-in-law, and a spoiled Border Collie mix dog named Rocky.


Welcome, Peg. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Or would you return to somewhere you’ve already been?
I’d love to take an unlimited tour of the Holy Land, visiting the places where Jesus walked.

Are you a fast writer or a slow writer?
I’m a fast typist, but too often the actual writing comes slowly.

Do you have a writing goal for each day? Week? Month?
As a member of ACFW I have taken part in the Novel Track Writing loop for many years. It offers me accountability by setting a monthly word count goal. I’d be lost without it.

Lightning Round:
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? Mountains

Y’all or You Guys? Neither … if I use anything it would usually be you all.

Biscuits or Dinner Roll? I guess I’d have to say dinner roll.

Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Spring, when everything comes to life after a long winter slumber.

Laptop or Desktop? Both

Mug or teacup? Mug

Please tell us a little about your novel, Whispering Hope.
1930 Chicago is no place for a Wisconsin country girl. 

Virginia Hopewell visits her cousin in Chicago and gets caught up in a deadly gangster shooting at a speakeasy, barely escaping with her life. After learning of the tragic death of her father, brother, and sister-in-law, Ginny returns to Wisconsin and convinces her mother to reopen the resort her father had closed after losing everything in the stock market crash in 1929.

Ransom Blake, an agent with the Chicago Bureau of Prohibition, had been at the same speakeasy acting on a tip about the shooting. Rance is charged with finding the gangster responsible. He and his team are sent to Wisconsin where the man was reported being seen, and to investigate how illegal liquor from Canada is making its way to Chicago.

With the opening of Whispering Hope Resort, Rance registers as a guest and comes face to face with the lovely redhead he’d briefly encountered at the speakeasy during the shooting.

CAMP HOPE
BY SARA FOUST

Sara Foust
Sara Foust is a multi-published, award-winning author who writes Inspirational Romantic Suspense from a mini-farm in East Tennessee, where she lives with her husband and their five homeschooled children. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. Her first novel, Callum's Compass, won second place in Deep River Books' 2017 Writer's Contest.  Sara also has a story, “Leap of Faith,” in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Step Outside Your Comfort Zone. Gain access to a FREE digital scrapbook by signing up for her newsletter.


Welcome, Sara. How do people react when they find out you write?
Most people ask me how old I am, shocked to think, first, that I’m 35, and second, that I’ve already written two novels. When they find out God allowed me time to write with 5 homeschooled children, they are even more shocked. It’s really fun to watch people’s reactions.

What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will?
I don’t think I would ever to be able to write a horror novel. It’s not “up my alley.” Since I became a mother twelve years ago, I find that it is harder and harder for me to stomach the grotesque, macabre nature of horror writing (or reading).

Why do you feel compelled to write—in your genre or at all?
Let me tackle the genre part first. I have been writing since I was a young child. As a teenager, I began to write for a secular audience and continued into my early 20s. Somewhere along the line, my pastor preached a message that grabbed me by the coattails and got me thinking. Was what I was writing something I would be proud to share with my pastor? Or would I be embarrassed if he read my work? The answer was the latter. Over the next weeks and months, God impressed me to change my writing content, genre, and audience to a Christian focus. I deleted the manuscript I had been working on for ten years, and had just completed, and shifted to something I would be proud to have my pastor, and God, read. 

As for the Romantic Suspense genre, I kind of naturally fell into this one. I am a romantic at heart. And I love adventure books. The more intriguing the puzzle the better. The more difficult to solve a mystery the better. 
 
I feel compelled to write because it is part of me, one of my God-given abilities. I want to honor Him by using the gift He’s given. Besides, writing is so much fun!

Lightning Round:
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? Both depending on the mood. I love the beach for short periods of time, but I’m always happy to come home to our beautiful mountains

Y’all or You Guys? You guys. I rarely say y’all.

Biscuits or Dinner Roll? Biscuits at Cracker Barrel. Yeast rolls at Austin’s. Yummm.

Spring, summer, winter, or fall? There are parts of each season I love, but fall is my favorite.

Laptop or Desktop? Both. I work on my laptop on the go and my desktop at home.
Mug or teacup? Mug. Teacups do not hold enough coffee!

Please tell us a little about your novel, Camp Hope.
Amy Dawson directs a summer camp for foster children near Briceville, Tennessee. A foster mom for the first time, her responsibilities as a mother to a traumatized child bring a whole new set of challenges and joys.

But when Amy's four-year-old foster daughter is dragged into the mountains of Royal Blue by a former employee, parenting challenges are overshadowed by a new nightmare. The Sheriff's department fails to procure viable leads, and Amy can't sit idle. Her childhood friend and first love, Jack Evans, returns to lend his skills as tracker. Problem is, he also stirs up romantic memories Amy would rather leave buried. 

Jack struggles to let go of his past failures and prove his reliability by bringing Mattie home, but fears when he left camp nineteen years ago and failed to keep a promise to Amy he permanently lost her confidence.

As Amy plunges into the wilderness on horseback to search for Mattie, she must decide who she trusts, let go of her childhood traumas, and learn to rely on hope in God. Facing dehydration, starvation, and a convoluted kidnapper, will she succeed in recovering her precious foster daughter or get lost in the vast wilderness forever?

Welcome, Linda. How do people react when they find out you write?
 Most people react with surprise, then say things like: “Do you write real books?” or “I’ve always wanted to write a book.”

What’s your favorite place you have visited? 
England – I have been an Anglophile since high school, and several of my books are set in England, so it was a huge thrill to go and be where my characters have been and to see sights I had only read about.

What was the main inspiration for the new book? Had the idea been on your mind for a while or just popped into it one day? 
The inspiration for Under Fire came during a brainstorming assignment for a writing class coupled with an incident that occurred in a nearby town.
