Lillian Duncan, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.


Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I mostly write suspense and mystery with some romance thrown in. Puzzle House is my first foray into women’s fiction.
How do you come up with ideas?
Anywhere and anyplace! I’ve gotten ideas from TV talk shows, or a certain scene will pop into my head. And one of my books was even from a dream I had.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
The story. I love putting my characters in tough situations and then they have to find a way out of it.
When did you write your first book?
I wrote my first book at the age of 40 but it was never published—that’s a good thing!

Tell us about Puzzle House
Puzzle House by Lillian Duncan
Life isn’t a box of candy—it’s a puzzle! Rachel Summers is all about Rachel Summers…until the day she crashes headlong into a semi-truck.
As her life hangs in the balance, she has a visitor who asks a very simple question. Does she want to be healed or to be a healer? She makes her choice, but the journey doesn’t go quite the way she expected.
And so Rachel now runs The Puzzle House. Every guest is different and yet the same. They all come to the Puzzle House for one reason and one reason only—to be healed. Sometimes they receive their miracle, and sometimes they discover there’s more than one kind of healing.
Nia is a fifteen-year-old African-American girl who is dying. The doctors have told her there is nothing else to be done. No more treatments. No more hope. No more life. And she’s angry about that. Very angry. Against her wishes, Nia’s aunt brings her to The Puzzle House.
Together, Nia and Rachel will take a journey that will change both their lives.
