Meet fellow Clean Indie Reads (aka Flinch Free Fiction) author, Tammy Sinclair

authorphotoToday I’d like to introduce my fellow CIR author, Tammy Sinclair.

Tammy Sinclair has loved writing stories from the time she was a small child. During her fifteen years of home-schooling her children, she had a non-fiction article published in Homeschool Enrichment magazine. A history buff and romantic at heart, she can be found enjoying the outdoors, cozying up with a good book or watching classic movies in her spare time. She resides in Oregon with her incredible husband and two amazing, young-adult daughters.

Welcome, Tammy!  Now, before we hear about your wonderful books, let me ask you three questions so we can get to know you a bit better. First, what inspired you to become an author, and how old were you at the time?

I think I started writing stories just as soon as I could pick up a crayon. In fact, to this day, I still have a little book I made when I was about seven! It’s just a couple folded sheets of pink paper with a story and illustrations, so it’s amazing that I managed to keep it through the decades!

I kept writing all through my life, though I didn’t always finish my stories. It wasn’t until very recently that I was finally determined to finish a complete novel and have it published. I suddenly realized that time was marching on and I needed to take action to help make my dream come true. I had stories that needed to be told!

These days, I’m inspired to write fiction that uplift and entertain, while hopefully pointing people to our loving God through the pages.

Well, I think we’re all glad you decided to take action! Now, next question, what was the inspiration for your latest book?

I have a novella soon to be launched, but my first and only novel recently published was a long-time labor of love for me! The Sentimental Journey is a Christian WWII romance with time travel.

WWII has always been my favorite era. From the fashions to the music and movies, it has always held a special charm for me. It was so much fun for me to live vicariously through Kara, the heroine in this story, as she gets to experience this special time in history.It was also a time of uncertainty and fear for the entire world. I think there is much to be learned from what the world faced during WWII, especially given our present circumstances.

I agree, absolutely. Though that era never interested me that much in the past, I’ve read a couple of books and seen a few series on television that have changed me. It was a hard time for all, indeed, and much can be learned from those times. One last question for you, what was the most challenging part of writing your recent novel?

I suppose the biggest challenge was not only engaging the reader with the characters and events, but aiming for complete historical accuracy. Because the 1940s had been my favorite era most of my life, I already knew quite a bit about this amazing era. Of course, I still had plenty to learn, though. I spent countless hours in research…ship building, overseas battles…right down to the exact dates of when specific songs and movies came out! It was actually a fun challenge, though. I think when we write about something we truly love, it tends to show through to readers in the final story.

I’ve not tried to write historical fiction, and I’m impressed that you’ve done it for your first novel! I recently read a book called Khaki Town, written by Australian novelist Judy Nunn, and I was impressed with the huge number of references she had for her research. Not an easy feat. So, let’s hear a bit more about this book of yours.


The Sentimental Journey is a Christian WWII romance with time travel. When a young woman finds herself suddenly on the American home front of 1943, a family is now residing in her house. Unaware of her secret, they take her under their wing…and soon their enlisted son returns before he’s to be shipped overseas. She finds herself instantly drawn toward him but doesn’t think their time together can possibly last.

Throughout the pages…throughout the tender romance she discovers…the theme of trusting God- no matter where we find ourselves, is woven throughout the pages.


Thank you for joining me here today, Tammy. Your book sounds wonderful. You can find The Sentimental Journey on Amazon, by clicking here.



Meet fellow Clean Indie Reads (aka Flinch Free Fiction) author Kimberly King

!cid_1121f528-b8d3-2ece-40c8-90c21f8c8053@yahooToday I’d like to introduce my fellow CIR author, Kimberly King.

One of Kimberly’s favourite things to do is make people laugh. All of her books are full of humour, with bits of romance and a dash of magic. She loves writing for young adults when relationships are new and fun and scary, and life is full of so many possibilities.
Kimberly currently live in beautiful Cache Valley, Utah, trying to squeeze in minutes of writing while raising six children. 
Welcome, Kimberly. We’re all curious to hear about your books, but first, let’s get you to answer three questions.  First, what inspired you to become an author, and how old were you at the time?
I’ve been writing and publishing my own stories ever since I learned how to write. My bedroom drawers were always full of spiral notebooks full of stories and ideas, stapled cardboard picture books, and printed out manuscripts. I realized becoming an author might be a real possibility in seventh grade when my English teacher told me that the picture book I’d created for a project was worth publishing. Then, as a junior in high school, my Creative Writing teacher pointed out my ability to write humor. It wasn’t until I was in my 30’s that I realized it was time to reach out and grab my dream of becoming a published author. I hired an amazing editor, and with her help, I finally made that dream come true.
Another wonderful story of the inspiring teachers some of us were fortunate to have! So glad you got a good one there. Now, next question, what three things would you say are the most important for an aspiring author to keep in mind as they being their writing journey?
Writing is a beautiful art, and while your story is so personal to you, be humble enough to realize that it’s not a masterpiece without help from others. Getting beta readers to go through your manuscript is necessary, whether you choose to go the traditional or indie route. Also, don’t doubt yourself. Everyone has a different story to tell. Just because your story doesn’t seem as sensational as someone else’s, you are a unique author with a unique story to tell, and it’s going to speak to someone. Always be true to yourself. And lastly, don’t ever think you are too old or too young to reach your dreams. Keep trying, keep working, and eventually, you’ll get there.
Wonderful advice, Kimberly. Just wonderful.  Now, one last question, what makes you happiest as an author? 
I absolutely love it when people read my books and tell me the parts they laughed at. Making people feel good, empowered and happy is one of the reasons I write. I want people to finish my books and feel the burdens of life lifted. Happiness is contagious, and I want to help spread it around.
Awwwww, that’s lovely. All authors like to hear their books have touched others, but to make someone laugh, especially in troubling times, in a true blessing.
Now, let’s hear about your books.

“The Trouble with Fairy Godmothers” was my first published book. This was a fun one to write, because it’s a modern-day take on my favorite fairy tale, “Cinderella.” In this book, Nikki Baker discovers she’s got a fairy godmother who’s willing to help her get her first kiss, but Nikki soon discovers her magic tends to have hilariously disastrous results.

“The Trouble with Prince Charming” is Book Two of the Magical Troubles series, full of memorable characters I hope you enjoy as much as I did!  Dating Ryker Stone is the happy ending Nikki has been hoping for, opening up the exciting new world of popularity. But dating a guy way out of her league presents a whole new set of problems she never anticipated. When a secret admirer comes to light, Nikki must decide which path to follow–and that means either betraying her fairy godmother or her own heart.
“Evan the Horrible” was my absolute favorite book to write. Evan Rice, a character from Book 2, is the textbook definition of class clown. He’s determined to make life as miserable as possible for everyone around him, especially after he finds a ring that grants wishes. From a school-wide food fight to a stink bomb not easily forgotten, Evan turns the school into his personal playground. But what he doesn’t know is that on the other end of his ridiculous wishes, something sinister lies waiting. Every wish he makes brings the mystery woman inside the mirrors closer and closer to getting out. It’s up to Jazzy Allen, a gothic recluse, to knock some sense into Evan before it’s too late. But what she doesn’t expect is to actually fall for the guy.
