How did you come up with your premise? Is there a story behind your book? How did the story evolve?Strangers often ask us if we’re twins. We’re not, but we’ve always thought it would be fun to have an identical twin. The premise of having someone who looks exactly like you isn’t new, but we like to think we put a different spin on it by having one twin impersonate his abducted brother while searching for the kidnapper.We write what we know and what comes from the heart. The story behind this book is the story of rural folk everywhere, living off the land, protecting their families, and dealing with the challenge of new ideas and change.The story evolved very slowly. We knew what would happen in the plot, but at the first writing, we have to be honest, we hated the hero and heroine. Innumerable rewrites later, we feel it’s evolved into something readers will enjoy.For those who are not familiar with this story, would you please give us the blurb?As undercover agent, Jackie Duncan, ferr…

Release date for Cassie's Wedding Dress

Cassie's Wedding Dress releases on October 14th! I'm organising a blog blitz for that day and will put links up soon.
If it were a movie it'd star the two ppl below.
Eric Close from Without a Trace as Pastor Jack Chambers. Only with a Brit accent ;-)
Fiona Bruce, BBC newsreader, as Cassie Hinton.

Steeplechase jockey Cassie Hinton's dream was to walk down the aisle in her medieval wedding gown to become Mrs. Jack Chambers. Injured in the Grand National, she returns home...only to find Jack is now the Pastor of her parent's church.
Jack Chambers, now a widower and single parent, still has feelings for Cassie, but she sees him as nothing more than a Pastor. Even if he could change her mind, there is still his position to consider.
With the Royal Wedding fast approaching, Cassie makes her dress, little dreaming of the consequences of doing so.
Extract:
“Everyone else has photos of the royal couple and ribbons, silver bells, hearts and balloons. I wanted something more …

Sept 11th

Like most of us, I know exactly where I was and what I was doing. I was at my parents. Two kids at school three miles away. It was 2.15pm. Neighbours had just finished and Dad asked if I'd like to watch Diagnosis Murder. I said yes so he kept the TV on.
A black screen came up saying "news report". We went live to New York and stayed there. I was driving to the school to collect R and C when the first tower fell. I arrived home and put the TV on in time to see the second fall. The TV just stayed on as hope faded. Like when Princess Diana died, we waited for someone to tell us it was a joke. But they never did.
On Oct 11th 2001 a friend sent me this.
Michael wrote: I had a very dear friend question my faith in God right after the terrorist attack on America. Her question was simply put, "Where is your God today?" She was very hurt, as all Americans were, so I tried not to react defensively. Since that moment I have prayed and grieved over the disastrous events.
