Both rebels in their own way, Josie and Jerry Patterson must
figure out how to keep the other's love...and keep the German enemy at bay.
She has two loves—her skating and Jerry, her husband. But
when he returns home looking like a skeleton trying to return to life, she's
scared. What happened in Germany to change a man so much? Has another woman
captured his heart?
Jerry has vowed to let Josie live her own glamourous
life...especially after what happened in Germany. But when his wife's life is
threatened, Jerry realizes he can't stand by and do nothing. Jerry has to risk
all for the very soul and life of himself—Josie.
These two damaged, rebellious people learn the hard way that
leaning on God instead of their own selves and abilities is the only true way
to love and happiness.
Lisa Lickel's brief interview with Carole:
Carole, what’s your
biggest reward in writing?
I'd say it's
·Knowing I'm using the talent God gave me, and
·Readers approval and enthusiasm over my books
What would you
like readers to tell others when they’ve finished reading?
If a reader has
read one of my books and enjoyed it, I'd love to have them sharing what they
loved about the book. Perhaps how it affected them in whatever way. For
·With my latest, released novel: A Flute in the Willows
(Book 2 of the Spies of WWII series), some readers said they liked how I
brought in PTSD in the book to bring awareness of the condition many soldiers
and families deal with after the soldiers return from war.
·They also enjoyed the relationship between the newly, but
separated by war, married couple, how they grew into a deeper love relationship
and their battle to overcome their troubles.
These are just two
of the effects from this book.
Who’s been your
biggest influence on your writing?
Perhaps my mother
who read to my brothers and me as young children. Positive encouragements to me
have been associations with other writer friends, words of advice (when I first
began to seriously write novels) from those (like Lena Nelson Dooley and Gayle
Roper) who had more authorly experience, and constant contact with
fellow-critiquers who have helped me to grow.
What are you
I'm hoping to
begin a book from a secular author and another from Author Jill Kremerer who
spoke at a recent writer's meeting I attended.
What’s coming up
·I'm trying to finish up the 4th book in my Appleton,
WV Romantic series, called Toby's Troubles. It focuses on the brother of
Caroline Gibson from book three: his mystery and romance. He has his own
shop-ghost, directs the town of Appleton's theater, is a tiny bit OCD when it
comes to Undiscovered Treasures (antique, collectible, junk shop), a huge tease
and doesn't know love when it stares him in the face.
·I also hope to finish the 3rd book in the Denton and
Alex Davies Mystery series, Daffy's Duck which features a special duck,
a talented artist who has Down's Syndrome: Daffodil Meadows. She and her older
brother co-own a ski resort in Colorado. Denton and Alex Davies, amateur
traveling detectives, along with Taffy, their Jack Russell Terrier, are
determined to find the person who is out to destroy the Meadows big time.
·If time allows (a big “if”), I want to get a little more writing
done on a historical stand alone book, Caleb's Destiny (a mystery from
the past and romance), and then
·work on the 3rd book in my Spies of WWII series, Sing
Until You Die. The third Rayner sister, Claire Rosella Rayner, is an
up-and-coming professional singer, who puts her musical studies on hold to sing
to the war troops. An overheard conversation sends her straight to the
boy-grown-man she's always detested, an undercover spy. Is there any possible
way her life can be spared, let alone a possibility for love to grow between
the two of them?
Can you share your
favorite marketing tool?
Right now I'm using Celebrate Lit with a book tour for my
A Flute in the Willows.
