with Margaret Daley

This week's author interview is with Margaret Daley, who is an amazing lady.

Margaret is giving away a copy of her book, so be sure to leave a comment on this post or yesterday's, with your email addy so I can track you down if you're the winner. The book drawing is open until Saturday evening and I'll announce the winner on Sunday.

Margaret, which character in Second Chance Family most interested you while you wrote and why?
Whitney Maxwell most interested me because she went through so much personal growth during the book, especially from when she was introduced in the book before, Family Ever After. I love how she discovered the power and love of the Lord.

Which of your books was the most fun for you to write and which character is your favorite?
Heart of the Amazon is the one I had the most fun writing because I love books about the jungle. The story is like African Queen meets Romancing the Stone. It’s a romantic suspense with a strong adventure element. I love reading books like that.

That sounds like my kind of book, Margaret! =)
What is your most difficult writing obstacle, and how do you overcome it?

Description. I have to go back in and layer it into my story. I like a fast read, and I often don’t read description so therefore I have to force myself to write it.

Are there certain foods or snacks keeps the words flowing for you?
No, usually I don’t eat when I’m writing, but I will have a drink—often tea.

Tell us the range of the kinds of books you enjoy reading.
I love to read romantic suspense, adventures, thrillers, mysteries, romance, both contemporary and historical and even fantasy and science fiction. I don’t care for women’s fiction and chick-lit.

What would be your dream vacation?
Going back to Tahiti and lying on a beach on Bora Bora. It’s a gorgeous place and the people are so nice. If not there, I’d love to visit Australia and see all the unusual animals there.

Oh, Tahiti sounds lovely! I hope you get to go back some day!
Are there spiritual themes you like to write about?

I often write about forgiveness and trust. Sometimes I also write about guilt and how people allow it to run their lives.

What lesson is the Lord teaching you right now or has recently taught you?
To follow His will—his plan is the best.

When is your next book due out and can you tell us about it?
The fifth book in the Fostered by Love series (Second Chance Family is the fourth one) is Together for the Holidays. It is Lisa’s story and will be out in November 2009.

Back cover blurb for Together for the Holidays:
A single mother with a traumatic past, Lisa Morgan only wants to raise her son with love and values. But lately the boy is struggling. When his basketball coach becomes a reluctant role model, Lisa is relieved. Until she learns that David Russell is also a cop. She’s not ready to share her past—or her heart. And neither is the world-weary detective. Yet as Christmas comes closer, the true meaning of the holiday brings them together in ways they never dared dream.

Second Chance Family can be purchased from your local stores (like Wally World!) or from Amazon, CBD and for your Kindle.

You can keep up with Margaret through her web site and her blog.
