˃˃˃ Q & A from Margaret Daley

Why did you pick writing about the bayou country in Louisiana?

I grew up on the Gulf Coast in Mississippi. My stepfather was Cajun, and I loved to hear stories about his childhood. That part of the United States is unique and fascinating.

Why did you title your series Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations?

In our society there are so many women who have gone through trials and tribulations and come out stronger because of them. They are good examples for others. They care about others and make a strong, firm stand for their beliefs.

FBI agent Madison Spencer found herself working with J. T. again on a case painfully different from their previous one. She could only watch as he struggled to remain coldly professional while his heart was in anguish. And what of her own heart? Romance should be the furthest thing from their minds. All she could do was hope–and pray–for them all.
