Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the honor of interviewing award-winning novelist Lena Nelson Dooley. Her novel Catherine’s Pursuit was a finalist for this year’s CAN Golden Scroll Award! Lena is well-known and loved in the writing community for mentoring new writers and supporting authors on her popular blog. But what stood out to me during a late-night chat with Lena at last year’s ACFW Conference was her incredible heart for her readers.

Lena, how many books do you have published? What are a few of your latest titles?

The search for her sisters will become a spiritual journey for the entire family.

Raised by her father, Catherine McKenna has never lacked for anything, surrounded by people to take care of her every need. On her eighteenth birthday she discovers that not only did her mother die when she was born, but she has two identical sisters. Although her father vowed not to look for his daughters, Catherine made no such promise. Setting out on her own with one clue and her maid in tow, she’s determined to find her sisters.

Collin Elliott has seen better days. After losing his ship to a violent and unexpected storm, he is trying to recover–physically and
emotionally. When Angus McKenna sends him to find, follow, and protect his daughter, he wants nothing more than to finish his task and return home. Can he help her find her sisters?

And will the discoveries they make along the way teach them both what’s most important in life?

Award-winning author, Lena Nelson Dooley, has more than 700,000 books in print.

Three of her books have been awarded the Carol Award silver pins, and she has received the ACFW Mentor of the Year award. The high point of her day is receiving feedback from her readers, especially people whose lives have been changed by her books.

Her 2010 release Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico, won the 2011 Will Rogers Medallion Award for excellence in publishing Western Fiction. Maggie’s Journey appeared on a reviewers Top Ten Books of 2011 list. It also won the 2012 Selah award for Historical Novel. Mary’s Blessing released in May 2012. It recently appeared on a review site’s Top Five Reads in 2012 list. Catherine’s Pursuit is coming in February 2013.
