Today I’d like to introduce you to my fellow CIR author, Lorin Grace.
Lorin Grace was born in Colorado and has been moving around the country ever since, living in eight states and several imaginary worlds. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Graphic Design. Currently, she lives in northern Utah with her husband, four children, and a dog who is insanely jealous of her laptop. When not writing Lorin enjoys creating graphics, visiting historical sites, museums, and reading. Lorin is an active member of the League of Utah Writers and was awarded Honorable Mention in their 2016 creative writing contest short romance story category. Her debut novel, Waking Lucy, was awarded a 2017 Recommend Read award in the LUW Published book contest.
Welcome Lorin, and thanks for joining me today. Now, you’ve got a new book out, but before we learn about it, I’ve got three questions for you. Ready?
Right. First, what inspired you to become an author, and how old were you at the time?
I started writing in third grade, and it is what would be termed as Little House on the Prairie fan fiction.
That show has inspired many, I’m sure. Now, second question … Other than stomping your foot and having a hissy fit, what else do you do when you get a review that isn’t so good?
I try to figure out why they wrote the review the way they did and learn from it. Could I have done something different?
Great attitude. Next question, where are your books set? And have you been there, or spent significant time there?
My historical novels are set in Massachusetts, which happens to be where I lived when I met my Husband so, therefore, it is the most romantic place on the face of the earth.
How sweet! Now, normally I stop at three questions, but because your answers have been short and sweet (there’s that word again??) I’m going to ask one more, what makes you happiest as an author?
Getting a call or an email from some one who loves my book–especially if it’s someone whom I know is a critical reader.
Yes, that’s the best feeling!
Now, you’ve got a brand new book – Healing Sarah – and I see it’s available on Amazon. I love the tag line: The only thing colder than Summer 1816 is Sarah’s heart, and Dr. Timison Dawes is determined to melt it.
