When April Love signs on to be an in-house chef at an old lakeshore mansion in Canoga Lake, Wisconsin, she comes face to face with her long-lost love, the drop-dead gorgeous Marc Thorne. It doesn't take long for their old magnetism to recharge, but how can she trust the guy who left her nearly at the altar eight years earlier? Her gut tells her something happened to Marc in between-something he's reluctant to reveal.

Tell us a little about yourself. I was raised in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, the same area the fictional Canoga Lake in Thyme for Love is situated. I did not start writing for publication until well into my adult years, but once God sparked the desire, I've not looked back. I am very active in American Christian Fiction Writers, having served on its board for five years and am now the Genesis Writing Contest Coordinator, ACFW's contest for unpublished writers. In my church, I sign language interpreted for our deaf attendees for many years and now am involved in the multicultural ministry, focusing on tutoring English to the Japanese. I also lead a women's Bible study group in my home.
What was your motivation behind this project? I've always enjoyed a good mystery and love romance stories as well. I decided to marry the two and looked to a program that was on HGTV a few years ago called If These Walls Could Talk. I wondered what the walls of the many 19th Century mansions that dot Lake Geneva's shoreline had to say, but to allow myself more authorial freedoms, I set the story in a fictional town and lake a short distance away from Lake Geneva.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? That God truly wants to forgive us when we confess and repent to Him, and He expects us to do the same toward those who have offended us. He is also a God of second chances and can be trusted to make things right in His time.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was reminded again and again about forgiveness as I wrote Marc and April's story, not knowing that in my own life I would be called upon to forgive much in the same way April is in the story.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I find my greatest influences come from God's Word and also from life itself. Lessons I've been called upon to learn. I enjoy a wide variety of authors and cannot pin down a top favorite, but anything by Ann Tatlock, Deborah Raney, and Gina Holmes, to name just a few, are auto-buys for me. Often when I get "stuck" in my own writing, I'll pick up a book in the genre in which I'm writing and read a bit. Somehow that triggers my own muse and I'm able to get back to writing.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Watch for two more books about April and Mark in the On the Road to Love Series from OakTara. Also, I have Love Finds You in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (my hometown) coming from Summerside Press in June 2012.
