 Our Interview with Lori Copeland


What inspired the concept for A Kiss for Cade?

I was given the chance to refresh a few older books from my ABA writing days. I leaped at the chance to rewrite this particular title, formerly named, The Courtship of Cade Colby. I was able to write the story as I first envisioned it, with focus on Christian values, and family life, two ingredients that I feel are the foundation of life. Though it’s a refreshed titled, the story has changed, and the reader will find little similarities to the original book.


Is any part of A Kiss for Cade factual?  

The storyline is purely a figment of my imagination. Every author draws on personal observations, and I’m sure there are elements of my observations in this story, but in general I haven’t experienced any of the situations Cade and Zoe find themselves in.


How closely is A Kiss for Cade based on your life experiences? 

 
My husband is a gun collector, so he helped at lot with the weapons used in this story.

 

How did you choose the location for the setting?

I’ve always loved the old west. I’m not sure why because our ancestors had a difficult life. They worked sun-up to sun-down to put food on the table, and clothe their children. My fascination with the time period was stimulated during my youth when I would hear my grandpa and grandma talk about “the old days”. My great-great grandmother was a full blooded Cherokee Indian, and my grandfather would regal me with stories of Indians rolling up in blankets and sleeping on his front porch when he was a small child. I was spellbound with his stories of the 1800’s, the long cold winters, and the hardships the Oklahoma farmers faced. A Kiss of Cade takes place in Kansas, but the storyline portrays how hard life can be for a single woman trying to raise children, both today and days past.


How long did A Kiss for Cade take you to complete?


This is a rewritten title, so it took much less time than writing new material. An author’s most humbling experience is when he looks back at earlier work and realizes how he’s grown. Or hopefully grown! A Kiss for Cade took me around two months to revise. Often revising is more difficult that starting fresh.

 

Do you have a favorite character in A Kiss for Cade? Why?


An author ‘gives birth’ to all of his book characters. Often my most favorite might be a secondary character. In A Kiss for Cade my favorite one to breathe life into happens to be Cade. I felt I knew him personally, and indentified with his longings for love and close family.

How much research did A Kiss for Cade take?


There are two types of historical novels. One that couldn’t take place without a factual event, and the other is that the story could take place any time, but the book is set in a certain period. I write the latter. My stories could take place anywhere or anytime, but I choose the old west setting.


Is this a series?  If so, what is the name of the series?


The Western Sky series. The books are not connecting stories, but they’re set in the west.


What are some of the challenges you face as an author?


The single most challenge is summer months. I want to be outside, vacationing, playing with grandchildren, but work waits.

What aspects of being a writer do you enjoy the most?


Going to conferences, meeting and talking with editors and fans, and most especially, meeting up with other authors. We laugh, cry and have a wonderful time together.

What is your writing style?   (Do you outline?  Write “by-the-seat-of-your-pants?   Or somewhere in-between?)

I start with a basic idea of where I’m going. Plot line, two main characters, and the conflict.  As the writing progresses the procedure changes and I switch into the ‘writing by the seat of my pants mode’. Often I end up either writing the first three chapters last (by then I know the characters) or completely rewriting the beginning of the story.

 

Do your characters begin to take on a life of their own as you write?

That’s the moment an author lives for!  When the story starts to write itself and they just type. Somehow it all comes together, and when you look back you’re surprised by events. Events you hadn’t previously considered. That’s the fun part of writing. The least fun is the process itself.

What message would you like your readers to take from A Kiss for Cade?

I write the same message in all of my books: God is good, that He’s on his Throne, that there isn’t a moment of your life that He isn’t aware of and in control of, so relax.

What is your greatest achievement?

My family. A wonderful husband. Three sons, five grandchildren, one great granddaughter, two beautiful daughters-in-law and granddaughter-in-law. I am so very blessed with family who love one another.

What is your goal or mission as a writer?

To provide an entertaining read, one that leads the reader to new insights. I want my reader to close the book and say a little prayer, maybe understanding better why God has them in their particular situation at this particular time.


What do you do to get away from it all?

Actually I don’t get away from it allâ║  But my favorite form of relaxation is a cruise.  I love cruises! The very ultimate in relaxation.
