Interviewing Author Grahame Peace Q1. Tell me about yourself what are your favorite books to read? A. I’m 61 years of age and was born in the Northern Textile Town of Huddersfield in England where I still live with my partner. I like many genres of books, but I don’t like anything too dark; before I retired I worked for many years in Mental Health Services in the UK, so I had more than my fill of ‘life’, and the ups and downs it can throw at people.

I’d been  A.writing screenplays since the early 2000s and I’d gotten some notice for them, but getting into that industry is notoriously difficult and expensive.

Interviewing Author Lanna Foley Webb Q1. when did you decide you were going to write a book? A. I read a book by a popular Christian author and I hated the way it ended! I have always had stories running around in my head, so I decided to write a story that would satisfy my romantic sensibilities in a moment of some sort of rebellion against the ending of that book. Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books  A. The name of the book is the name of one of the main characters, and it so well encapsulates the driving source of the conflict that it seemed more than more fitting. Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18? A. I am currently working on two projects. The first is the next in the series after Lonesome Wolf. I'm loving the character more than I thought possible! The second is a western in the style of Louis L'Amour. It is interesting to me because I usually run to romances. Q 4. how long have you been writing? A.
