I hope all of you are having a wonderful day! Time is certainly racing by. As I promised, today I will be presenting an interview I did for my great friend, and fellow author, Marie Lavender. After you are done taking a look, you should check out her site: https://iloveromanceblog.wordpress.com/. She always has something interesting to share. I would also like to send a quick thanks to Lois S. Stern, www.tales2inspire.com/blog, who originally started this thrilling event! At the end of this article you will find links to five other interesting authors. I definitely suggest taking a look. To all of you reading, have a great day and enjoy!
1. What is your working title of your book (or story)?
The title of my latest work is Miracles In The Making.
2. Where did the idea come from for these books?
Often, I will decide I want to work with a specific theme and after tossing around a few different concepts and idea will just pop into my head. After that I take some time to work out the kinks until I am settled on a satisfying idea.
3. What genre do your books fall under?
I write mostly Historical and Contemporary Romance. My most recent release however, is more of a paranormal romance.
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
For Noel I would choose the American actor Jake Gyllenhaal because of his bright blue eyes and easy smile. These characteristics perfectly reflect what I envision this character looking like. For Candy I’d probably choose Rachelle Lefevre. She seems to have a naturally sweet demeanor that would be ideal for Candy, seeing as she is always so relaxed and soft-hearted.
5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
This story is about how a single act of kindness completely changes two people’s fate.
6. Will your book(s) be self-published or represented by an agency?
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It took me about eight months to write. As a single mom I try to do most of my writing when my son is at school so that when he gets home I can focus mainly on spending time with him and oftentimes helping out with his homework.
8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I would say, An Angel For The Tree by Shelli Rosewarne. The characters in her book have a similar dilemma to Candy and Noel in Miracles in the Making and the book’s setting is based around the Christmas holiday just like my own novella.
9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Ever since I first read the book, A Holiday of Love, I have enjoyed the idea of writing a romance with a Christmas based theme. I love the soft tone and friendly characters these stories often contain. It has been a few years now since I first read A Holiday Of Love but after becoming a writer I made writing a story like this one of my own personal goals.
I hope you had a good time. If you would like to keep updated you can also check out the three links listed below:

Isobel Hart – http://www.isobelhartsbooks.com
About the Author:
I’ve always loved the saying ‘the only ordinary people are people you don’t know very well’. Not many people know I love to write. Isobel Hart is my pen name. The most extraordinary thing I’ve ever done was start Lily’s story (What goes around comes around & Full Circle). Even more amazing was finding that people enjoyed them. I’m praying you feel the same way about Natasha in Compromise Agreement.
Every heroine I’ve written about has had a little bit of me in her. Lily had my weight issues. Natasha has my hatred of clothes shopping (sorry ladies). I also like to laugh. I’m hoping my books have a bit of that too – in amongst some angst and a healthy dose of sex.
I’m a happily married mum of two – eternally grateful to all my boys for their support of my writing. When I’m not writing I’m reading.
I hope you enjoy them. X
Tracy Auerbach – Goodreads Blog
About the Author:
I am a reader, writer, and Mommy to two fun little boys (aged 4 and 6). On the side, I am a science teacher at my day job. I love teaching science and making it hands-on and fun for all students, but my real passion is to come home, have fun with my husband and sons, and then get lost in the amazing world of my writing. I also enjoy the writing of many other talented authors. My favorite genre to read is fantasy, but I also love paranormal romance and urban fantasy. “The Human Cure” is my first full-length published novel, but I have published many articles and short stories. I currently have several projects in the works, including a sequel to The Human Cure.
