The Next Big Thing Blog Post

Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:

I was nominated by Rita Garcia for The Next Big Thing Blog Post.

Today it’s my turn to talk about my upcoming book Calm Before the Storm. At the end of the post, I’ll nominate another writer who will post their own answers about their book next week.

What is the working title of your book?

Calm Before the Storm

Where did the idea come from for the book?

The storm of illness that hits and destroys so many families. I lost my youngest sister to an eating disorder.

What genre does your book fall under? Christian inspirational romantic suspense.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Roma Downey and Kirk Cameron

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Vera Minette Bradley was the first woman to fight off the pain medication and the only one to leave the hospital alive.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? Self-published or published by a publisher, but at this point, probably self-published.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? It is still in the works, but I expect to complete it this spring.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? I don't know of any in my genre, but I do know there are many books published on the topic of eating disorders. However, my novel is not focused on eating disorder, though it is one topic.

Who or What inspired you to write this book? The loss of my mother and sister six years apart.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Vera tried to fight off the shot as the nurse thrust the needle at her hip. She'd fought them in the ambulance, too, but there were too many of them, too many arms holding her down. She tried to tell the nurse she'd had a pain shot en route to the hospital, but to no avail. She felt the sharp prick of the needle and prayed before she went under.

Three years later, Myrtle tried desperately to open her eyes. She wanted to awaken one more time to see her youngest daughter's big brown eyes. She had to say goodbye.

Six years later, Bridgett made her last telephone call.

Eight years later, Glory went into a deep sleep and never woke.

What did all these women have in common? They'd all had pain medication at the same hospital. Was someone playing God, or was it truly their time to go? The story of five women. Only one leaves the hospital alive.

My published novels include Last Resort, Southern Superstitions, Whispering Cypress, and One Rainy Summer. They are available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Sony, and You may check out all my available titles on Kindle at this link
