Is any part of Licensed for Trouble factual?
The house that PJ inherits is an actual house near where I grew up – a house that seemed like a fairytale to me, and one I always dreamed of living in. Unfortunately, although it went on the market a few years ago, it was too much for my pocketbook! (Maybe I’ll inherit it!)
What is the most interesting tidbit that you learned while writing Licensed for Trouble?
I learned that we often define our lives by how we see ourselves, and how God sees us, and if we could just get a heavenly perspective, it might change the way we live our lives and the choices we make.
I also learned how to skydive.
How many books will be in the PJ Sugar series?
