The Story Behind Writing No Place to Hide

9119nzI9uML._SL1500_ Hi everyone, thank you so much for stopping by. As I write this post, I’m sitting in San Diego, California enjoying a Spring Break vacation with my family. I’m from South Carolina so to be on the west coast is a real treat! Since I spin law enforcement stories, I thought I’d give them a shout out. I love to research and learn new things. In No Place to Hide, I had to learn how the FBI and local law enforcement would respond to a terrorist threat. I don’t want to go into a detailed account of what kind because that would give away part of the book but needless to say, I had a LOT of great feedback from a couple of my FBI buddies who read –and fix—my stories for me. I try to create characters who come to life on the page for the reader. Yes, sometimes I make the bad guy someone in law enforcement, but I also try to make the ones who bring down dirty cops or agents the real heroes in the stories. It’s an incredible responsibility to bring these characters to life and hopefully depict them in a way that honors the men and women in law enforcement. fbi 1 The FBI is an amazing organization, one that is constantly changing and upping the bar to meet the demands of those who mastermind crimes against the citizens of the United States of America and beyond. These agents put their lives on the line for people like you and me and I’m extremely grateful for their efforts. If you know someone in any branch of law enforcement, I want to encourage you to pray for that person on a regular basis. Again, thanks for stopping by and good luck with the hunt!

  1. I recently read a story in the news of a school boy who was lost in the Bush for 5 days before the Search and Rescue team found him, alive! It was pretty amazing, and after he was hospitalised for a few days, he was well and allowed to go home. I wonder how such a boy got lost in the Bush. . .

    • Anytime a child is missing it is intense and scary. Thanks, Joy, for your input.

  2. Thanks for all of the insightful information.

  3. Maybe lost at sea?

    • You’re welcome, Stephanie.

    • Betsy, that’s a great idea. My December Alaska Search and Rescue, Standoff at Christmas, has something like that.

  4. I love all the rescues I’ve seen on the news about people lost at sea. It’s interesting to hear about how they survive.

    • Gail, they are exciting.

  5. I would like to read a rescue about firefighters who get trapped fighting a fire in the dense woods.

    • Good suggestion, Deana.

  6. I would like to see a knight that has to fight a dragon to save a fair damsel as I love dragons.

    • One of my favorite series is a scifi series about dragons on Pern.

  7. I would like to see a book about a group of high adventure people that become lost and desperately need help getting out.

    • Thanks, Cheryl.

  8. We have recently had a lot of flooding in my state, and there have been several news reports of cars being swept away and SAR being called in to find the occupants. I think a situation like that would be very intense to read about!

    • That does sound exciting and intense.

  9. My favorite types of stories are where a hero or heroine find there significant other. It might be cool to have the girl save the guy for a change.

    • Amelia, I wrote a whole 6 book series about female bodyguards. That was fun.

  10. I’d like to read a search and rescue story patterned after the show “Lost”, only with a much better ending!!

    • I love Lost but the ending was ????

  11. I love all search and rescue stories. I don’t think that I could pick just one.

    • I know what you mean, Pam.

  12. It seems that every summer a child gets lost in the tall corn or someone gets trapped in a corn grain bin here in Indiana.

    • I can see that with large corn fields.

  13. Not many Christian books are set in Hawaii! I think it would be awesome to have a search and rescue of someone lost on an island. It seems so easy to find someone in such a small space, but it really isn’t!

    • I love the Hawaiian islands.

  14. A story of search and rescue of people stranded on a deserted island.

    • That would be interesting.

  15. Any search and rescue story is fascinating to me, but how about from a natural disaster, like a tornado? Thanks for participating in the hunt, and for the bonus giveaway!

    • I live in tornado alley so I can see that as a story.

  16. Twenty-seven is my favorite number :). Former hockey player’s number for the Nashville Predators.

    • Love the number.

  17. I remember years ago little Jessica who fell down a well. I don’t know if there would be enough to base a complete novel on. But I certainly remember it dominated news coverage for a while.

    • I remember that, Sara.

  18. I’ve read a few search and rescue books but I think one that takes place in a hurricane or earthquake would be interesting…something unexpected.

    • I grew up on the Gulf Coast with our share of hurricanes.

  19. Can’t wait to read it!

    • Thanks, Pamela.

  20. I would like to see a search and rescue book about a deaf or blind rock climber and their dog.

    • Interesting, Halita. I hadn’t thought of that.

  21. I have a Medical Alert Dog, so I think it would be interesting to read about a Medical Alert Dog separated from his human trying to reach her to bring her the medication before the clock runs out.

    When I watch the news of buildings collapsing after a disaster (natural or human sabotage), I think, “Caleb would find me. He’d find some way to get to me and bring my medicine. Even if it was unsafe for humans to get to me, he’d know EXACTLY how much stability is needed and what to safely crawl on or crawl through to get to me–and he wouldn’t rest until he was with me.”

    He’s a Korean Jindo. They were wild dogs from the Jindo Island so only the smartest and savviest survived over a few thousand years under harsh conditions. He’s only 40 lbs (small for a service dog), so he could fit in places humans couldn’t get through. And he’s freakishly smart. Service dogs are smart because they’re well-trained, but he’s freakishly smart because he mostly trained himself. He figured out what I needed before I knew what I needed and found ways to serve me or communicate to me. He graduated from school the first week–but stayed through the program for socialization.

    Anyway, he’d know how to find a way through rubble–no matter what the humans thought was safe or not–to get to me. And I wouldn’t tell him what to do–if he told me to follow him, I’d trust him completely no matter how unsafe an area looked. He’s saved my life several times when I thought things were fine and the doctors thought things were fine. But he insisted something was wrong, so I stayed in the hospital. Good thing because I was there when things suddenly took a dramatic downturn–it could have been too late had I listened to the doctors and been home. I trust him more than any medical device, doctor, specialist, professional… even myself.

    • Amazing. I’ve written several books about service dogs and it was something to read about them.

  22. I would love to read about a search and rescue about siblings who went hiking or repelling and they got lost or hurt. I love sibling bonds!

    • In my series about search and rescue I have a set of twins that are SAR workers.

  23. A story about a missing family.

    • Thanks, Patricia. That would be interesting.

  24. I would love to see a search and rescue on an island.

    • Thanks, Beth.

  25. Hi Margaret,

    A story about a search and rescue team sent out to assist a: biplane accident in the Himalayas.

    • In The Yuletide Rescue the SAR team rescue a down plane but in Alaska.

  26. Sounds like a great read! Can’t wait. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Thanks, Dana.

  27. Anything involving the woods would be interesting. I liked one of the comments above that mentioned firemen as well.

    • In To Save Her Child the searches were in woods in Alaska.

  28. Something involving soldiers, or a woman searching for a man she secretly loves but refuses to admit the truth about due to her history… 🙂

    • Good suggestions, Sarah.

  29. I love search and rescue stories… especially woods. Add children and I am a goner!

    • That’s in my story To Save Her Child, Mary.

  30. I like search and rescue stories with dogs.

    • A lot of SAR use dogs. To Save Her Child, my September book, The Protector’s Mission and my December book, Standoff at Christmas will have SAR dogs.

  31. I think a search and rescue in the Outback of Australia would be very interesting.

    • I would love to go to Australia. Very interesting place to do a SAR.

  32. A search and rescue in the mountains of North Carolina or on the coast.

    • And I would love to come to North Carolina to do research.

  33. I like search and rescue, especially set in the Late 1800’s early 1900’s..
    Maybe with a wooded or mountain terrain…
    Thanks,
    Dawn Robinson

    • Thanks, Dawn.

  34. a parent with alzheimer’s goes missing…think that would be a way to get a hero and heroine together…love your books and Lynette Eason’s work too.

    • Susan, Lynette is such a good writer. I like your suggestion.

  35. any kind

    bn100candg at hotmail dot com

    • Thanks, bn100.

  36. Like a rescue story in the north pole.

    • I’m doing Alaska–close to the North Pole.

  37. Wow, this scavenger hunt it really fun. I have read many of your books, (& enjoyed each one) but I haven’t read the Yuletide Rescue yet.

  38. I’d love to read a search and rescue set in the Blue Ridge mountains.

    • I love the Blue Ridge Mountains.

  39. I would love to win!

    • Good luck, Susan.

  40. Oh goodness! There are so many intense search and rescue stories to choose from. It could be a character stranded on a deserted island, a shipwreck, lost at sea, a kidnapping. I think it would be an interesting take if there was a storyline of a woman being sex trafficked that needs rescue even.

    • Great suggestions, Rebecca.

  41. This story looks great! I can’t imagine losing a child like that!

    • As a mother it was easy to put myself in her shoes. Scary. Frantic.

  42. I love your books, Margaret!!!! Enjoying the Hunt!!!

    • Thanks, Margie.

  43. I’ve been on the waiting list for your books at our library for a while now. They are in high demand. Looking forward to being able to read your books when they become available.

    • Adrienne, I hope you are a member of my newsletter because for only my newsletter readers, I have a contest in each newsletter for books and other prizes.

  44. I like search and rescue from natural disasters.

    • Good suggestion, Tonya.

  45. I adore Love Inspired books! I would love to read a search and rescue that takes place in the desert 🙂

    • That would be a great place for a search and rescue—harsh conditions and an urgency to the situation.

  46. I would love to see an underwater / sunken treasure search and rescue book.

    • That would be fun, Adrienne.

  47. Maybe a rescue off the rocky coasts of Maine would make an interesting read. Thank you for recognizing the services of law enforcement, and your efforts to make others aware of their duties and sacrifice.

    • You are welcome, Peggy. Maine is a gorgeous place.

  48. I think it would be interesting to read about a multi-cultural family, where the mother or father abducts the child after the parents have separated, and takes them to their (the mother’s or father’s) home country.
    Or perhaps someone abducted at an airport, train station, etc.
    I’m American, and my husband is Taiwanese. “Half Bloods” (mixed babies) are extremely popular here, and some Chinese come to Taiwan to kidnap children to use as beggars. Everyone thinks mixed babies are so much cuter than regular (100% Asian) babies, here. With my husband being a fireman (and therefore, working long hours), I’m always nervous about the first time I’ll have to take my son on a plane or busy train alone. So, I think it would be interesting to read something that is realistic to my own situation.
    I saw a movie about a Korean father who kidnapped his own son on Lifetime when I was a teenager, and I thought it was a very interesting movie.

    • How interesting, Britany. I didn’t know that about mixed babies.

  49. Anything/place with search & rescue dogs would be a great story line! Thanks for your participation in the scavenger hunt and to win a copy of “The Yuletide Rescue”

    • You’re welcome, Trixi. I love stories with SAR dogs.

  50. I became intrigued reading about Deadly Holiday on this page. I went to order it and realized it was Book 3, so I purchased the first one so that I can read them in order. I can’t wait to get started, they sound like my kind of mysteries!

    • Thanks, Peggy. I am planning two more this year at least.

  51. There are so many search and rescue books that would be great. In reading some of the comments, I kept saying, oh yeah that’d be a good one, oh never thought of that…I liked the natural disaster often wondered what people thought and went through in a flood, tornado, earthquake, tsunami….has to be very intense and emotional! Thank the Lord I haven’t had to face any of those things but for those that have…I can’t imagine!

    • Ruth, I’ve been in a hurricane and it is scary.

  52. A child who dissappears from a circus. Maxie

    • Thanks, Maxie. I haven’t been to a circus in ages.

  53. A search and rescue book about a teenage runaway or a deserted island mystery sounds good to me!

    • Thanks for the suggestions, Stephanie.

  54. How about one set in the Australian outback?

    • Another commenter suggested that too. And of course, I would have to visit to write a book about the outback. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia.

  55. Hikers or riders that have had accident on a forest trail (like in a national park)

    • I like that, Linda.

  56. An earthquake?

    • Petro, we are starting to have earthquakes here in Oklahoma. I didn’t realize what was happening the first time.

  57. I love books that are set in the cold/ice/snow! I would love to read about an avalanche rescue or survival in a cave during a blizzard. Thanks for the opportunity!

    • I have done some research on avalanches. Thanks for the suggestion.

  58. Maybe a group teen & adult on a mission trip lost and they could work through their issues?? In the cold climate is great or Canada . . . takes me away from the heat of FL and I love the Canadian West!!! Thanks!

    • I like that, Chris.

  59. I love your books!

    • Thanks, Louise.

  60. How about something that involves the castles of Scotland…must be lots of hidden rooms and tunnels to explore in those!

    • Julie, they are so neat. That would be a great place to set a book.

  61. I’m not picky about the type of rescue! I do prefer outdoors and cooler temperatures!

    • Joan, that was what was good about placing my series in Alaska.

  62. Love your books….read them on my Kindle. Have several only Wish list..hoping to get a @ Gift Card” next week for my Birthday so I can get some?

    • Happy birthday, Cindy, a little early. My birthday is in April, too.

  63. I’m an avid reader and enjoy Christian suspense.

    • Kim, I love reading it too.

  64. I enjoy reading about dogs on rescue teams.

    • Love SAR dogs in a story.

  65. Your books sound exciting and just like my kind of book! Excited to find new Christian authors!

    • Thanks, Joelle.

  66. A missing mental patient who has escaped from care and is missing in a small rural town.

    • I like that, Virginia!

  67. I like all search and rescue with a happy ending. The men and women who do this are a special breed.

    • Robbie, I agree the people who do it are special.

  68. Big Bend National Park in West Texas.

    • I wrote one of my Men of the Texas Rangers series in Big Bend National Park–at least some of the story.

  69. Hmm, I like unique stories that go against stereotype – maybe something where the person doesn’t even know they need to be rescued? They are content and happy and unaware they are in a bad situation?

    • That is very interesting.

  70. Wow! Such wonderful ideas already put forth. I love an exciting search and rescue, but I especially like the stories where the person in need of rescue never gives up!

    • I agree, Melissa.

  71. I love anything and everything to do with books!! They’re my greatest friends and my dearest companions!!

    • I love books, too, Crystal.

  72. I enjoy search and rescue books, especially with happy endings. I also enjoy books that take me to new places.

    • I love to read about new places.

  73. The only idea I can think of is one in the mountains or caves. There could be search and rescue dogs used.

    • Both places would be exciting, Michelle.

  74. Doesn’t matter, I like all your books that I’ve read.

    • Thanks, Ann.

  75. I live near the coast in NJ, so sea rescue stories float my boat, lol.

    • In my December book coming out at the end of this year–Standoff at Christmas–has a sea rescue.

  76. Any that involves dogs 😛

    • Love dogs in the story.

  77. Hmm. What about a search and rescuer who was blind and relied on other senses to help guide them?

    • I never thought of that, Laurel.

  78. I love search and rescue books. Not sure what kind I would want to read next but I do love the search and rescue books with a team of different strengths and personalities working together.

    • Thanks, Julie.

  79. One with a newly wed couple

    • Carol, for Love Inspired Suspense I probably couldn’t do one with a new wedded couple unless they were secondary characters, which is possible.

  80. Search and rescue is always a good story. Love them!

    • I do too, Leica.

  81. I like all kinds of search and rescue stories.

    • I do too, Laura.

  82. I would love to see a search and rescue book where there is an airplane crash in the mountains and the only two survivors are one guy and one girl and they have to try to work together to get off of the mountain and get rescued and end up falling in love with each other in the process of it all. 🙂

    • Or maybe there is a small child that also survived, and his/her parents did not survive, and the guy and girl, while trying to rescue themselves and the child, end up falling in love with each other and the child and so they become a family in the end when they get rescued.

      • Great suggestion, Shantae.

  83. Thank you for the chance to win!

    • I’m glad you stopped by, Charis.

  84. I would enjoy reading about the rescue of a child with a language impairment (speech-language disorder).

    • Thanks for the suggestion, Janice.

  85. I always thought a shipwreck rescue would be extra intense since you are dealing with the ocean.

    • That could be exciting, Megan.

  86. I’d like a search and rescue at sea

    • In my December book 2015, Standoff at Christmas, I have a rescue at sea.

  87. as i am a volunteer firefighter. It would be nice to see a story on firefighter and search and rescue getting together in a national forest to find a woman and her horse that have fallen into a ravine.

    • Barbara, thank you for being a volunteer firefighter. I like that suggestion.

  88. I would love to see a search and rescue in the Artic.

    • I’m looking at doing one around Nome, Alaska.

  89. I am a mountain girl. So I would be interested in reading about rescues related to that.

    • Thanks, Lisa. I love the mountains.

  90. You mentioned urban SAR. I think it would be interesting to read about that and other scenarios we don’t often hear about. Living in Alaska, I know that you could get lost anywhere, doesn’t have to be the middle of the wilderness.

    • My third SAR book coming out this September called The Protector’s Mission is about SAR in Anchorage after a bombing.

  91. I love search and rescue stories that feature canine rescuers. It’s so fascinating how the dogs work with their handlers!

    • I agree with you, Brooke. Fascinating.

  92. Dogs are so smart and I love reading about them. Especially in books like yours. What I’d like to see though is a story about; who rescues the rescuers. The rescuers get in some kind of trouble, possibly lose their dog and the snow isn’t stopping. It wouldn’t have to be a rescue unit to go find them or if it was, the unit could be the new girls and guys and two new young dogs who weren’t allowed to go out the first time so it’s up to them to find the first unit. Hey, I’m liking this idea. By the way, thanks for being part of the “hunt” again Margaret. I was so pleased to see your page here!

    • Thanks, Shirley. Your idea is a good suggestion. Sometimes rescuers get in trouble.

  93. I think it would be interesting to have a situation where there is additional concern because of a medical condition of the lost person to keep in mind.

    • Great suggestion, Debora.

  94. I’ve enjoyed your books. DEADLY HOLIDAY sounds like another great read!!

    • Thank you, Lora.

  95. About a group of 3 or 4 hikers, hiking the Pacfic Crest Trail and didn’t show up at a set check in point. Some sections are very long from one point to another and have some scary parts, like steep with drop offs, lots of big trees, where they couldn’t be spotted from the air. Could be exciting.

    • Oh, that sounds like a great place to set a story.

  96. I would like to see a search and rescue of someone trapped in an underwater cavern.

    • Love that suggestion, Janet.

  97. I would love to see a Search & Rescue sent in anywhere in Scotland but most preferably in the Highlands. Also, I attempted to “like” you on Facebook but just last evening, FB restricted me from liking/following/subscribing to certain profiles and wouldn’t allow me to “like” your page. I have appealed this action & asked for an explanation (it has just happened after I started participating in this scavenger hunt) but they have not yet responded. Meanwhile, please credit me the 2 entry chances for trying to “like” your page. Thank you & bless you!

    • Susan, I will. Sometimes FB does its own thing. I love Scotland. Beautiful country.

  98. Ooo, maybe during a forest fire.

    • Several people have mentioned a forest fire. I think it’s an excellent suggestion.

  99. I love it when the story happens in the mountains. Oooo, I have a good one, how about a search and rescue on a wagon train or pioneer times.

    • Pam, I love the mountains too. I think those story ideas would be great for a historical writer

  100. I am not sure, maybe someone lost after a natural disaster like a tornado or hurricane.

    • Good suggestion, Ellen.

  101. Maybe a SAR in the mountains or cliff like terrain.

    Thank you,
    Stephanie C.

    • With a person who is afraid of heights. Thanks, Stephanie.

  102. Maybe lost on the Appalachian Trail. I grew up in Harlan Ky and used to go up to Little Shepherd’s Trail to hike. I know the trail goes for miles and miles and it wouldn’t be hard to get lost (turned around and need rescuing.)

    • Thanks, Christy. I grew up in Lexington, Ky.

  103. Something in the Pacific Northwest. We have Mt. Rainier, Mt St. Helens, etc. Great settings for search and rescue.

    • I totally agree, Terrill, and I would have to visit the area to do research. Yay!

  104. I think a sar set in the mountains involving a family doing a day trip when their plane is forced down by a bad blizzard they were unprepared for and someone is injured and radio is broken. What do they do?

    • Great setup, Laura.

  105. Thanks for being a part of such a fun scavenger hunt! I host an all-things-book linky party every Thursday on my blog, Mommynificent.com, and we’d love to have you stop by any time. You can link up any of your own blog posts and maybe garner some new readers, and you can also hop around and meet some other authors and avid readers.
    Tina

    • Thanks, Tina, for the invitation.

  106. Love the idea of search and rescue stories and then you set them in Alaska – were U reading my mind. Just put 1st on my Kindle and looking forward to 2nd in series as I love your books’

    • Thanks, Sue. So far I have four in the series coming out.

  107. Hello Margaret – first of all thanks for being a part of the scavenger Hunt. I enjoy finding new authors to read all the time but I might have read a few of your books if I can recall correctly. Thank You for the chance to win your Alaskan based series.

    How about something based in Michigan?

    Now I know that I might be bias to the suggestion but there is many environments that could lend themselves to rescuing books. For example of some of those scenarios are listed below.

    We have shore line on the Great lakes that can be a force to deal with with storms like the one that took many ships like the Fitzgerald and/ or the ice that the Coast Guard cutters have to break up so the ships go make in through the Soo Locks in Sault Ste Marie.

    Last couple of years we have had some ice caves that have made the news. up in down the Great lakes coast lines.

    We have the Sleeping Bear Dunes, where not to long ago; a boy was buried by the sands.

    We have large amounts of National Forestry Land. Especially in the Upper Lower Peninsula and the Upper Peninsula. We have had many people get lost in them with or without forest fires. From day packers or hunters. We also have things like wolves, mountain lions and bears that could be part of the story. The elk and moose isn’t anything to sneeze at either up there.

    There are cooper mines, old factories and defunct buildings all over the state along with other man made issues that could be very dangerous for collapses.

    We also have several islands that offer up a wide range of issues that could be limited personal available. We have a rich history from the trapping days and war forts including the likes of Mackinaw Island.

    We have tornadoes all over but mostly the bottom 1/3 of the state. It was unusual for those of us in the middle of the state but we had a funnel cloud in my area (between Big Rapids and Mt. Pleasant) come thru here about 2 years ago. We have people drilling for gas here too.

    We also have some large rivers likes the Detroit River, Rouge River & the Muskegon Rivers. Plus we have several entries from & to Canada. That are either large tunnels or large bridges like the Ambassador and the Mackinaw Bridges. We also have a large number of mountains in the state of Michigan. Porcupine or the Huron Mountains for example.

    But we also get a huge amount of tourist and film makers to the state for we have a vast array of terrains. There is plenty of fonder for people getting lost until your hearts content.

    So you see there is plenty of opportunities for many Michigan based rescues that could become a series.

    I really do hope that you will consider Michigan for a series and thank again for being a part of the hunt. Sorry this is so long but I just couldn’t help myself. 😉

    In Kind Regards,
    Tricia

    • Tricia, thanks for the fascinating information about Michigan. I learned a lot from your post and yes, I will consider Michigan as a backdrop for a story.

  108. Maybe Someone who wonders away while sleepwalking in an unfamiliar location. Thanks for participating in this fun event!

    • Maybe a sleepwalker who wakes up in a strange place. Cool, Jill.

  109. Any search and rescue in a wilderness area is interesting to read about.

    • Thanks, clynsg.

  110. I commented yesterday about “rescuing the rescuers” and it seems we can add another response for the rafflecopter I was thinking of something like a controlled fire that gets out of control and becomes dangerous. Near a forest where people hike, fish, picnic and in some instances even live. The fire spreads and can’t be contained. Search and rescue has to go in and find people and get them to safety. What do you think?

    • Great suggestion, Shirley. Thanks.

  111. Thanks for being a part of this exciting Scavenger hunt!

    I would love to read a of search and rescue story located in foreign county, say Asia?

    • I’ve traveled a lot of places that would be good for a search and rescue. Thanks, Janka.

  112. Can’t wait to read!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Lynne.

  113. Having hiked in themountains know that its easy to get turned around

    • I know and dangerous with wild animals and drop offs. Thanks, Dawn.

  114. I would like to see a search and rescue using dogs.

    • Love dogs in a story, Hannah.

  115. i like search and rescue during winter on a mountain either because of a plane crash or got lost or hurt skiing/snowboarding or because of an avalanche

    • Love all your ideas, Angela.

  116. Doesn’t Alaska have a time when it’s almost always dark?? I don’t know if you included that in your search and rescue already, but I would be especially difficult with very limited daylight hours. Do they continue in the dark? Do they have “special” ways of continuing in the dark that other states do not use? I love stories about Alaska and can’t wait to read yours. 🙂

    • Yes, Lisa, and I’ve used it in several books.

  117. Not entering the raffle copter because I have that book already as well as the current one, though I haven’t read the new one. Ocean resues.

    • Zina, I hope you enjoy the second one. My fourth one in December will have an ocean rescue.

  118. Margaret,
    I would love to see a search and rescue using some type of political figure. Maybe their child, wife and/or children and wife are lost or kidnapped.
    My youngest daughter teaches search and rescue dogs (more as a hobby, now she is an animal behavioralist).
    I started reading your books because of my Mom, she loved suspense novels (she passed away in 2010).
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!
    Good luck and God’s blessings to all!

    • Sorry to hear about your mom passing away, Robbie. I love to read suspense. My favorite genre.

  119. Thank you for the opportunity to win one of your books.

    • I’m glad you stopped by, Theresa.
