Interview with Romantic Suspense Author D'Ann Lindun


Joining me today is Romantic Suspense Author D'Ann Lindun, so sit back read her interview and then check out her newest release.

Thank you so much for joining me today, D'Ann


How long does it take you to write a book?

Depends on the book. I’ve written over 20 now. Vaquero took a year, the last one, Promise Me Eden, took a little over a month.

 
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I don’t think I have one!

 
What do you think is the best way of publishing a book these days?

I think it depends upon the author. Whatever works for that person is best.

 
Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

I generally write what I know, but when I need help, I ask my writer friends first, Google or the library next.

 
When did you write your first book?

Twenty years ago, as an exercise in a class Margot Early taught.


What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Ride horses, garden, read.


How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

20 finished, at least that many partials. I don’t have a fave! Sometimes I say I like one better, but then I think of my others and nope, they’re all my faves.

 
Can you tell me and your readers something about your main characters?

Love to! Cooper is scarred by his past, and by being accused of murder. Elizabeth Adams is a Los Angeles native who dreams of living in the west and being in a western movie.


Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

Unfortunately, not yet.

 
What do you think makes a good story?

Easy! Characters I care about!


What are your favorite book genres in writing and reading? Why?

Romantic suspense! Because in my opinion, the mystery often pushes the H/h into a relationship and I love that!

Who are you favorite authors to read?

My CPs! Weird as it sounds, I love their books and can’t wait for their chapters to come to me!

Thanks so much for answering my questions.  Now for a little about Cooper's Redemption

Elizabeth Adams is a Los Angles native who has always dreamed of living in the Rocky Mountains. She loves western movies and riding horses, and dreams of being a heroine in a western film. She gets her chance for real life adventure when her mother disappears from Salt Lick, Colorado, after going there to sell a ranch she inherited.

J.B. Cooper (just Cooper) is under suspicion for killing his neighbor, Henry Harper, over a water dispute. There is no evidence to convict him, but the shadow of doubt hovers around him. He just wants to be left in peace.

Circumstances throw Elizabeth and Cooper together when he tracks rustled cattle to her ranch … and discovers a body in the barn. Once again, he is the suspect in a suspicious death. Elizabeth is convinced Cooper had nothing to do with the murder of her cousin because to her, he’s a true western hero. Together, they search for her mother, clear Cooper’s name and fall in love along the way.

 
More About D'Ann Lindun
 
 
Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Romance appeals to her because there's just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. D’Ann’s particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them. This is probably because she draws inspiration from the area where she lives, Western Colorado, her husband of twenty-nine years and their daughter. Composites of their small farm, herd of horses, five Australian shepherds, a Queensland heeler, nine ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!

  21. No, Sophia, and I pray I never do 'cause if someone ever messed with one of my horses, I'd have to track 'em down and even the score!
