Thank you for having me here today, Krystal.

When writing this b
ook, Faith was definitely the most fun character to write, but also the most difficult. 

When working on the character of Faith, I knew that I wanted her to be similar to Rayner in background and personality, like two pieces of a puzzle coming together.  So, I made her a Native American, a girl of twenty-five who gives her parents a lot of grief and is in the big city living the life of a young woman who loves to try new things.  She doesn't know it, but she also plays a huge part in a Native American Legend.

I searched high and low through what seemed like thousands of Native American legends to find on that would work with my story, but I didn't find one.  I had to take the liberty of making up one of my own. 

I based her childhood loosely on my brother's (he was a bit of a trouble causer as well).  Her life when Rayner enters the story has some shades of my friends and me in our twenties.

Faith was a lot of fun, and she became very real to me.  I was happy to release her out into the world, but sad to see her go.


GIVEAWAY:  two eBook copies of The Light Within Me (the first book of this series)at each tour stop; a $15 All Romance eBooks GC for one randomly drawn commenter and $10 Amazon GC for blog host with the most comments (excluding the host's and the author's).

  1. When going to Amazon to put Finding My Faith on my wishlist, I noticed the name of the series is Six Saviors. Assuming that you're planning 6 books for the series, are all the plots fully developed, or are you still looking for inspiration?

    Thanks for hosting and giving me a chance to win :) The book sounds great.

  1. There is one reason above any other that this book appeals to me. A 25 year old girl who is a little bit of a troublemaker? Hmmm....sounds familiar. I am almost 30 now and I have settled down drastically, but I wasn't quite so "settled" in my late teens are early to mid twenties. I really relate to characters who are having a hard time finding their place in the world, or trying to overcome pain and heartache, so they act out. I remember those feelings so well. It is always nice to root for someone when I know how they feel. The book sounds awesome and thanks for your post!

  1. to Jamie:
    I am 45 and my dad is 72 and we are still a little bit of trouble makers, him much more than me.

    Someone said the series is called Six something (sorry can't remember). Seriously will it be six books?
