Hey everyone, I’m so excited to have my friend and author Liz Johnson here today! Liz and I bonded over a favorite Monday night TV show. Teen Wolf. Don’t judge! Great cast, great writing, great romance and suspense…speaking of romantic suspense Liz is sharing the inspiration behind her newest Love Inspired Suspense, Stolen Memories, sharing some fun facts about herself as well as giving away a copy of the book! Liz, thanks so much for being here! Tell us what inspired this story.
(Liz) “Stolen Memories came about in an entirely new way for me. A little over a year ago, I received a call from my literary agent. The editors at Love Inspired Suspense were putting together a continuity series featuring books from six of their authors, and I had been invited to participate. My agent asked if I was interested. Of course, I was. I jumped at the chance to work with the talented authors writing the other books in the series. We were each assigned a book in the Witness Protection series and worked together to keep the overall story arc flowing smoothly between books about the different characters. It was a brand new writing format for me. I’d never collaborated with other authors like this, and, while there were some unique challenges to keeping all the story lines and secrets in place, I really enjoyed the camaraderie and encouragement of working together.”
(Jessica) That is so cool, Liz! Now I have to read the other ones. Now that we know how the story came about, tell us three fun facts about yourself so readers can get to know better.
3 fun facts about Liz:
I played the alto saxophone from 5th to 10th grade. And there’s a very good reason that I haven’t picked it up since then. (I wasn’t very good.) J But I always wanted to have a musical talent.
When I was a kid, I wanted to live during the American Civil War. Now that I know it wasn’t as romantic as the books made it out to be, I’m glad to be alive in modern times. But I’m still fascinated with the 1860s and love to read fiction and nonfiction about the people and places of the era. And since I moved to Middle Tennessee, I love visiting the historic plantations that played a part in America’s history.
I’m a terrible cook, but I made a commitment to get better at it this year. So far I’ve conquered BBQ chicken in my slow cooker and tacos and frozen…just about anything.
(Jessica) Ha! I’m good at frozen anything too and I just made BBQ in my crock pot on Monday. Great minds, eh?!
Thank you so much for visiting with us today and congratulations on your new 3-book Contemporary Romance contract with Revell. Can’t wait to read them!
