with Margaret Daley


Welcome back to Patterings, Margaret! It's a pleasure having you again.
What verse is special to you right now?

I am with you always, to the very end of the age. 
Matthew 28:20
Knowing the Lord is with us always makes life a lot easier than thinking we are alone to do everything by ourselves.

What do you do in your free time?
Read, go to lunch with a friend, play bridge.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Be more patient. As a teacher I had patience, but when it comes to my own life, I’m not as patient as I wish I could be.

Which character in your new release most interested you while you wrote?
Annie Coleman—the heroine in Merry Mayhem. I can’t imagine running for your life, not knowing who to trust. And worse having a child to protect as well as yourself.

What part of writing do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy the plotting the most when I write. I love it when the story falls into place, the characters come alive on the page.

What sparks a story for you?
Many things spark a story for me—a career, a situation, a setting, something from the news. Sometimes I’m not even sure where my ideas come from. They just appear one day.

When is your next book due out and can you tell us about it?
Cowboy Protector is a March Love Inspired Suspense 2010. It is the third book in the LIS continuity series about the Witness Protection Program.

The blurb reads:
Two years ago, Hannah Williams left the Witness Protection program—and she’s been running ever since. To stay ahead of the mob, she changes her name and location constantly. So when she takes a job caring for a Montana rancher’s sick daughter, she expects to leave soon. But little Misty Taylor tugs at Hannah’s heartstrings—and so does her handsome father. Hannah knows Austin Taylor suspects she’s keeping secrets. But how can she tell him the truth without endangering the pair she’s come to love?

    I'd love to win this book. It sounds so interesting that I'll probably be able to read the whole thing through(I have a big problem of not being able to finish a Suspense book once I start it, but this one sounds really good) And Margaret is a wonderful writer, go Margaret!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
