Greetings from Marti Pieper in #Senecastrong, South Carolina, where we’re persevering through the COVID-19 pandemic and recovering from a devastating tornado that hit the morning after Easter. I’m grateful our family and home are safe, and I’m also grateful for my personal and professional friendship with today’s interview subject, the fascinating author, speaker, life coach, and licensed counselor Tina Yeager.

Greetings from Sarah Sundin, sheltering-in-place in California. While we’re all suffering a bit of cabin fever, how appropriate that I’m interviewing author Anne Greene, who takes you to exciting locations and times through her award-winning novels. Anne loves travel and history, and it shows in her writing!

Davalynn Spencer here, digging out from a Colorado spring snowstorm and gearing up for a weekend in the 70s. But in the midst of all this craziness, I’m pleased to introduce author Sandra Orchard and her latest book, Lass and Found.
Sandra, give us a quick thumbnail of your new title.
This is the fourth title in the multi-author series Scottish Bakery Mysteries about former college roommates, who reunite to open a bakery in Loch Mallaig, in Michigan’s UP, a place where the sound of bagpipes fill the air, kilts never go out of fashion, and mysteries surface with curious regularity.
Did anything in particular inspire you to write this book?
I absolutely love to plot whodunits that will keep readers guessing to the very end. For Lass and Found, the characters and setting were decided for me by my editor, but the plot grew out of a desire to write a mystery that didn’t involve a dead body and would incorporate my love of hiking with my dog. I then found clues in the ordinary events and actions of day-to-day life, things we think nothing of . . . until something extraordinary happens. Then each of those little things we did can take on a sinister twist. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Like all novelists, I get my characters in trouble. They get in fights. Sometimes knives or guns are involved. But like many novelists, the closest I’ve come to fighting is watching my sons’ karate lessons. Carla Hoch, on the other hand, is the real deal. She does Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and she does it well. And she teaches about fighting to novelists! I am super-excited to hear about Carla’s book, Fight Write: How to Write Believable Fight Scenes!
Carla, please tell us about your book.
Fight Write is designed to help writers with all facets of creating a fight scene. Broken up into five “Rounds,” Fight Write teaches what to consider before writing the scene, the biology, psychology, and terminology of fighting, as well how to choose a fighting style and weapon for your character.

In fact, a number of years ago, I first learned about CAN through some of her posts!
Welcome, Cheri! Please tell us about your book.
