Tell us a little about yourself. I was born in Ireland, and am proud of the fact that I was once patted on the head by Prince Philip when I was a baby. My great grandfather, and my grandfatheryes father and sonwere both riveters on the building of the Titanic. Tongue in cheek, I think it's fair to say that as a family we accept no responsibility for the sinking of that infamous ship. Stories of my ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in Colonial India inspired my multi-award-winning, historical series Twilight of the British Raj, Book 1 Shadowed in Silk, Book 2 Captured by Moonlight, and Book 3 Veiled at Midnight. Currently I have also written Londonderry Dreaming, my first contemporary romance set in N. Ireland, and soon to be released is Sofi's Bridge.
I live on the stupendously beautiful west coast of Canada with my husband and our grown up family. My cat Scottie is chief editor on all my books.
What was your motivation behind this project? Veiled at Midnight was inspired for 2 reasons. First of all I felt that the first book in this series Shadowed in Silk needed a continuation from that ending. There had to be a redemption for the alcoholic in that first book. So I wrote that redemptive ending in Book 3. But this book was also inspired by the journey from alcoholism to sobriety that my brother took. I saw the struggle up close. I felt the despair, the anger toward my brother for wasting his life, but then I saw the renewal of life when he turned it all over to Christ.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers will enjoy the BIG LOVE STORY that I wrote for this book. That they will hold on to hope when the dark times unfold in this story as England hands independence over to India and the new country of Pakistan is born--a terribly traumatic time in history. I hope they'll laugh at the funny parts which I sprinkle in to lighten the way through the dark passages. But most of all I hope readers will be inspired that nothing can separate us from the love of God through Christ his son.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? As with all my stories, they come from true-life experience. I rejoice in the redemption that I see in my family members out of God's goodness. As I write stories to reflect that redemption, my own faith is strengthen and I end up praising God.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The biggest influence on my writing is Francine Rivers. I love her Mark of the Lion series, and I try to write big epic stories like that. Stories that take the reader through some very dark times, but show the light at the end, that light that gets bigger and brighter with each step with each page.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I am a happy, happy woman with a wonderful husband, 4 fantastic children (one of whom is my birth daughter who I relinquished to adoption and was reunited with 20 years later). I am also the happy grandmother to 4 grandsons. Learn more about me on my website.
