Is It True: Under the Full Blooded Moon by Diane Saxon @Diane_Saxon #RLFblog #paranormalPlay Is It True with today’s guest Diane Saxon, author of Under the Full Blooded Moon, a Paranormal Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Since he lost his father and his childhood at the age of ten to a witch’s curse, cynical journalist Stuart Caldwell has searched the world in his quest to find the key to his family’s centuries-old curse. What he finds when he lands on the Scottish island of Breggar is far from what he expects. Instead of a battle to the death with the cruel enchantress he believes resides there, Stuart finds he’s the one in the firing line, and the target is his heart.

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
this book is part of a series?
No. It’s a standalone
you lost sleep while writing this book?
I always lose sleep. My characters love to torment me in the middle of the night and I frequently get up to write at 3:00 am.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Absolutely loads. I have a friend who uses Tarot so I took her to lunch and picked her brain. She did a reading for me and then I went away and studied tarot and witchcraft to such a huge degree.
I also did a massive amount of research on the Inner Hebrides.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Some are definitely not human. Ruth has three rather interesting black ‘cats’.
this book has more than one genre?
I think so, it’s a contemporary dark paranormal, but it’s prologue is historical.
you speak more than one language?
Unfortunately not. I can understand a certain amount of German and French, but I just never practice enough to keep my schoolgirl languages up to date.
you grew up where you live now?
No. I grew up in Africa and Germany. I travelled extensively throughout Europe when I was a child.
you love to read?
Absolutely. I never go anywhere without either my kindle or a book.
you are never late?
No. I hate to be late for anything. I’ve spent so long juggling work, children and activities that I tend to run things with military precision. Well, not so much these days now my girls have grown up…
you love pizza?
No. It certainly doesn’t love me. I always get terrible stomach pains after pizza.
you love sushi?
No. It’s not so much the fish as the bland rice. It just doesn’t appeal.
you have a pet?
I have several. A stunning Dalmatian called Skye, and handsome black Labrador called Beau. Felicity, my one-eyed kitty who’s forever in trouble and Sam our ginger queen who rules the house. We also have six chickens – soon to be more as one is brooding over four fertilized eggs.

About the Book

Title    Gun Shy
Genre Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
The subject of his grandmother’s enthusiasm to marry him off, Sherriff Jack T Swan is fighting dirty to save his skin and has sworn off women until further notice. So the very last thing he needs in his life is a beautiful damsel in distress. Despite initial appearances, Jack soon discovers Kate is anything but distressed. In fact, she’s more than capable of skewering him with her kitten heel.
Doctor Kate Marsden is handy with a scalpel, but she’s not quite sure how to deal with the local sheriff, who she inadvertently mistakes for a pervert while trying to report a crime.
Time and again their paths cross and attraction rages between them, but while Jack is adamant he’s not in the market for a serious relationship, Kate is definitely not interested in a one-night stand.

Introducing Katherine Marsden

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We’re happy to have you here today.
Name: Katherine Marsden
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Shropshire, United Kingdom
Profession: Doctor
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars.
I’m 5’4” pretty slim, with a really great pair of legs, even if I say so myself. I think they’re my best feature. Although I know my hair shouldn’t be so long with me being a doctor, I really can’t bring myself to have it cut. I love to be able to style it anyway I please, but the humidity in America has sent it a little wild.
I’m blonde with blue eyes and pale skin which is always a problem when I blush. I light up like a candle.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Sheriff Jack T Swann, he’s a darling.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a fully qualified ER surgeon looking for a little advancement and experience in my field. I’ve had a pretty rough couple of years. My sister, well she had a bad time and then she and her twins came to live with me. I was offered an opportunity to go to America for this experience I’ve been seeking and my sister really encouraged me to go. I guess she was ready to stand on her own two feet. Quite honestly, though, it’s hard being away from your loved ones. I really miss the children, after all, I am their second mum.
I’m a very capable woman, I know how to slice and dice, and we’re not talking vegetables here. I’m nifty with a scalpel, and the things my brother taught me in self-defense, I can only advise you to watch out. I wield a mean kitten heel too.
How do you dress?
When I’m not in scrubs, which is most of the time, I love flirty, knee length skirts that I can whoosh around. They make me feel so feminine and girly which is not an attribute I can always have covered in blood, sick and guts much of the day.
On what special skills do you rely?
I’m an ER doctor. Without being too boastful, I must confess to being an absolute whizz with a scalpel, but one of my best skills is stitching people up. My sewing ability is next to none. Scars from my surgery will be minimal.
What is your family like?
I have a fabulous family who I dote on. Mum is the sorter of all problems, whatever they may be. Dad, cool, calm and supportive. My younger sister Lydia, who I kind of baby. Lydia’s twins Rosie and Aaron who due to the most horrific circumstances, I’ve been their second mother since birth. I adore them and it’s the worst feeling in the world to leave them while I cross the Atlantic divide to find a future of my own.
How do you handle challenges?
Head on and chin up. With a scalpel in one hand and a kitten heel in the other.
Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?
Jack Swann. Because I love him so much.

Interview with Diane Saxon

Why did you write this book?
I held a launch party for one of my previous books and one of the games we played was for everyone to put their name into a hat, and the winner got a walk on part in my next book. This happened to be Flynn’s Kiss, Book #1 in my Disarmed & Dangerous series. The winner, Barbara Ann Perry was so delighted, she didn’t want to be a gentle sweetheart – no – she wanted to be a kick ass female. Well, actually she would really have liked to be a psychotic killer, but we smoothed that out a little between us.
By the time her sassy and strong willed character hit the first few pages of Flynn’s Kiss, I knew the woman had to have a whole book of her own.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. Almost any sub-genres, but mainly thrillers, suspense, historical, contemporary and paranormal. And I love humour, so bring on the Julia Quinns and the Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Do you know, I’m quite fickle. There are so many that I love, but I have to say I read Tim by Colleen McCullough many years ago, before it was turned into a film and my heart almost exploded with love for him.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m torn. I’m currently working on If Love Had Wings, a follow-up to Banshee Seduction, but there’s another character being a bit pushy and wanting her own story, so I’m also writing one of my Atlantic Divide series too. Whichever one takes my fancy at the time.
In the coming months, there’s going to be quite a bit of activity from me. I have Gun Shy coming out in August and several other projects which I’ll talk about more next time.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Black Hawk pilot Captain Barbara Lynn Perry is running scared. Witness to an event too horrible to think about and too dangerous to talk of, she finds herself alienated from a world she has always had faith in.
With her Special Forces brother missing, she has only one other person to turn to. When her friend Flynn Swann isn’t available, Barbara is left with no choice but to trust the man Flynn sends to save her.
Psychiatrist Dominic Salter’s information from her superior officer’s file is that Barbara has gone rogue. Despite the damning evidence, every instinct tells him he’s dealing with an honorable woman, one who single-handedly saved Flynn from torture and a sure death. Dominic’s challenge is to delve his way beneath her tough, defensive attitude and coax the truth from a woman who’s too frightened to reveal her dark secret.
In his brand new facility containing a state of the art Dreampsych Transcender he’s experimenting with, a machine far beyond a simulator, Dominic has to gain the trust and confidence of Barbara while he resists the hard pull of attraction to this kick-ass woman.
Betrayed by a member of his staff, events take a sinister turn, and the pressure is on in a fight against time for Dominic to persuade Barbara to put her trust in him and reveal the truth before matters are taken out of his hands.

What’s your favorite down-home
family style meal?
Although I’ve lived abroad for much of my young life and
still love to travel, there is nothing finer than a good old fashioned English
Sunday roast. A rib of beef, pink in the middle, Yorkshire pudding, roast
potatoes (crispy on the outside, fluffy in the middle), leeks in cheese sauce,
carrots and broccoli with a good, savory gravy
What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
I love food. I’m no connoisseur, but I would far rather have
a little bit of something really delicious than a whole heap of something just
for the sake of eating.
If I’m given the choice when dining out, I will always
choose an Italian restaurant. I find it very difficult to choose, but I love a
tasty seafood risotto or a creamy tagliatelli.
Tell us about your
favorite toy as a child.
I still have my favorite toy. It’s tucked away in one of my
underwear drawers, so delicate now that I very rarely touch it. But, it’s
there, never to be thrown out. Threadbare and floppy, my little lambie has been
with me since I was probably four or five. It’s been all over the world with
me. Drowned in brandy on our return home from Germany, a straw filled toy, it
would never have survived if my Grandma hadn’t insisted on washing, washing,
washing it. I still fancy I can smell alcohol on it now. With both eyes
missing, a broken leg and the stitching gone from its mouth and nose, it’s
still one of my most precious possessions.
What are your hobbies?
Reading, writing, walking my Dalmatian and black Labrador for
miles, snorkeling and holidaying.
What kinds of things do
you read when you’re researching a new book?
It depends on what kind of book I’m writing. When I wrote my
sci-fi, Short Circuit Time, I spent a lot of research time reading Steven
Hawkins. For my upcoming book later this year, I’ve trawled the internet for
information on Black Hawk helicopters, their pilots and training.
For Banshee Seduction, it was less reading but I had great
fun talking to a football agent, discussing game play with him and his football
friend, researching game-play, watching clips of games – it was no hardship,

Fantasy, Shapeshifter
Diane Saxon
Book Rating R
Sweet, shy librarian Ginny has a problem. Whenever passion strikes, so
do the weeping, wailing voices in her head. Being half banshee, she’s already
run screaming from the underworld and her female relatives, believing love will
find a way with patience and faith on planet Earth.
The trouble is, humans just aren’t man enough, and every time Ginny
shows interest in a male, she makes him bleed. It’s going to take more than
just a simple human being to get past Ginny’s defences.
Matthew, “The Dane,” fullback for the New York Chameleons, knows the
moment he meets the little fireball that she’s his mate. For two hundred years
he and his dragon have waited for a female capable of setting their world on
fire. Problem is, he doesn’t seem to be able to stop her from going up in
flames long enough to prove he’s more than man enough for her screaming
Will Matt ever be able to convince Ginny she’s his mate? And will Ginny
get Matt alone long enough to let him appreciate her pyrotechnics?

Interview with Diane Saxon

Why did you write this
Because I was goaded into it by two other wonderful authors.
Allyson Lindt and Eva Lefoy. You see, we all originally wrote different genres,
mine is normally contemporary with a cowboy, so we thought we would spread our wings
and venture into something we hadn’t tried before (except Eva, she was the sci-fi
Now, having been brought up watching Star Trek and Dr Who, reading
dystopian novels from a young age (starting with Z for Zachariah when I was about
twelve) I was keen to try my hand.
So this was it, a Challenge. This is how is worked:
Three authors
Three months
One blog post
each every three weeks
One challenge
– A 15,000 word short story
It never turned
out that short.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I’m fickle. Romance definitely. Sub-genres, contemporary, historical,
fantasy, thrillers.
Who is your favorite character
from fiction (not including your own)?
I have many, so I would probably answer this question differently
each time. Today, it’s Tim, by Colleen McCullough, one of the most beautifully written
characters. I read the book long before I saw the film and I loved both.
What are you working on
at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’ve just subbed a paranormal romance so I’m hoping to have news
on that in the coming weeks.
However, I have returned to contemporary writing at the moment
for the second book in my Disarmed and Dangerous Series. I’m pulling it all together
right now with the hopes of subbing it by the end January.
Please tell us about your
latest book.
In the year 2086, Zaphira is alone,
the last survivor of biological warfare on Earth. Before he died, her scientist
father promised other survivors would come. Nobody has. So when a horribly mangled
android shows up claiming to be her father’s assistant, Aiden, who has been sent
through time to rescue her, she’s both frightened and astounded.
The last time she’d seen Aiden, she’d
been sixteen, head-over-heels in love with him and had literally thrown herself
at him, leaving her devastated by his rejection and him running for the hills. The
following day, she’d been told of his death.
Eight years later he’s miraculously
back, this time asking for her help. Without it, he won’t survive. But can she really
put a dead man back together with tweezers?
For Aiden, everything has changed.
There are no other humans, no government, and time travel has left his new android
body unexpectedly weak and suffering from inexplicable genetic changes in eye and
hair color, brought about by his molecular shake-up. Unbelievably, the scientist
who sent him is dead, and he must rely on the scientist’s daughter to help him.
A woman who he’s not so sure has his best interests at heart.
The last time he’d seen her, Zaphira
had been a sixteen year old with a dangerous crush on him and he’d been rocked by
the turmoil of his own feelings. Now she’s twenty four and literally holds his survival
in her hands. Too bad everything he does and says seems to annoy her.
Trusting her might be his undoing.
But he is left with no choice.
For Zaphira, getting used to the transformation
of old Aiden to android Aiden requires a large mental leap. But when android Aiden
starts to rebuild his human form to a new and improved standard, things start to
get tricky.

A holiday memory from
author Naomi Bellina:
My dad played the violin and I played
the piano, so one year we decided to record some Christmas carols. We had one of
those flat recorders with a cassette tape (giving away my age here!) and we spent
a few evenings on several memorable recording sessions. It’s not all that easy to
play along with another instrument. You have to get the timing just right and eventually,
we did.

Naomi Bellina and Father
A few nights before Christmas, my
brother, sister, mom and dad and a family friend piled into the Volkswagen and drove
around our neighborhood singing along to the carols. I doubt anyone in the houses
could actually hear the music and I’m pretty sure we sounded like a chorus of cats
in heat yowling at the moon, but all I remember was how much fun we had.
I still love Christmas music and have
assembled a nice collection. I think of my dad when I listen, and picture him playing
the violin in heaven.

A holiday memory from
author Tami Lund:
I met my hubs, Chris, on May first,
at a party, through a mutual friend. At the time, I lived on the other end of the
country, and had gone home to Michigan to visit friends and family. When our mutual
friend mentioned that I was from out of town, Chris jokingly asked, “Would
she be interested in a one-night stand?”
(This is a funny remark because first,
Chris is *not* that kind of guy. And second, at the time, well, I… was that kind
of girl. Or at least was open to the option. Hey, we’re only young once….)
By the end of the night, he’d fed
me cheesecake, given me a heart-pounding kiss, and we made plans to see each other
again the next day. We then proceeded to spend every day of the rest of my vacation
together, discussing potential bridesmaids and groomsmen (nope, not kidding), meeting
his parents, and getting the approval of his best friend. Apparently, Chris didn’t
have a great track record when it came to dating…
When I left to go home to Louisiana,
I had Chris’ demo tape in my bag (he was a television editor/producer), which I
gave to the general manager of a local television station. (I worked at a nonprofit,
doing PR at the time, and the GM was on my board of directors.) He called Chris
and set up an interview. The week of Memorial Day, Chris flew to Louisiana, interviewed,
got the job, and went home and put in his two weeks’ notice.
Two weeks later, he moved to Louisiana…
and in with me. Yep, six weeks after we met. I told him I didn’t “play house,”
though, so if this thing was going to work, I needed to have a ring on my finger
by the end of the year. Christmas would be good. In fact, I informed him, just one
tiny box under the tree would be perfect. Nothing else. Hell,
we couldn’t afford anything else anyway.
Two days before Christmas, I came
home from work to find several boxes under the tree, all addressed to me, and none
were appropriately ring sized. Talk about depressed. I didn’t even want to go out
that night, even though my best friend was in town, and we’d made plans with a small
group of friends to go to a local karaoke bar.
We ended up going anyway, and I drowned
my sorrows in wine …. Until shortly before midnight, when the karaoke DJ summoned
Chris, and then someone placed a chair in the middle of the dance floor, and then
my friends herded me to the chair… And halfway through singing Just The Way You
Are by Billy Joel, my soon-to-be husband dropped to one knee, whipped out a ring
box and proposed.
That was sixteen years ago this Christmas.

A holiday memory from
author Sharon Callender:
I was an awkward twelve year old struggling
with a boatload of insecurities. Even though I was painfully shy, I still managed
to become a member of the school’s traveling chorus. This particular year we were
asked to sing at a local nursing home. For some reason, the thought of singing there
terrified me.
When performance day arrived and I
stepped off the yellow school bus, my stomach knotted up. As I entered the lobby,
the antiseptic like odor, the faces of the residents, and the lit Christmas tree
in the room all overwhelmed my senses. Then something happened that changed everything.
A tiny, frail woman in a wheelchair smiled at all of us and said “thank you
for singing here today.” We hadn’t even sung a note yet and she was thanking
us. Her simple words erased my fears. None of this was about me, it was about them.
The traveling chorus had an assignment
and it was spreading holiday cheer. I’ll never forget the sheer joy on the faces
of the residents as we performed our rehearsed songs. It was the coolest feeling
in the world to be part of such a simple act of kindness wrapped up in the gift
of song. Because of this one moment in my life, the holidays have become a season
for giving back and helping those in need. There are so many ways each of us can
make a difference all year round and sometimes what we consider to be the smallest
gift can be the greatest one. Happy Holidays!

A holiday memory from

Airport Haute Cuisine
Because of my husband’s career, the
holidays for me are synonymous with travel–the international kind. While I wish
I could enjoy the same level of comfort during my various flights as the heroines
in my romances, I’m usually among the majority of weary travelers flying coach.
More often than not, my airport meals were eaten standing up or seated on my carry-on,
with one hand precariously grasping a cup of coffee.
That said, airports are where I’ve
had some of my most memorable meals. The first was after my flight to Bangkok. Once
I was done hugging my parents, I made a mad dash to an airport restaurant and ordered
some mango and sticky rice. By Thai standards, the desert was serviceable at best.
But after a year of deprivation, the fruit tasted like heaven. (Sorry America, your
mangos do not taste like they do in Asia. There is no competition. None!)
The second time airport food had the
White Castle effect (Harold and Kumar reference) was at London Heathrow during my
first trip out of the U.A.E. While I love Abu Dhabi, I am very much partial to pork
products. After close to a year of making do with chicken sausage, turkey bacon,
and fake pepperoni, my taste buds were dying for a taste of home. The moment I reached
my layover spot, I made a mad dash to a place where I could order a proper (and
extremely unhealthy) breakfast.
My most memorable airport meal to
date, however, was actually a flat white in Wellington International Airport. Prior
to this trip, I had been in Pakistan for six months, and our health unit strongly
advised against anything but UHT milk (which tastes like colored chalky water).
Words cannot describe how divine that cup of milky coffee, paired with a proper
scone, tasted after my very long flight.
One thing all these meals taught me,
however, is that the holidays aren’t about specific dates in the year or a particular
location. They are about sharing the things we enjoy with the people we love, wherever
and whenever that might be.

A holiday memory from
author Annette Mardis:
If any kid deserved to get a stocking
full of coal it was my brother, the Christmas I was in fourth grade.
After all, it was his fault I spent
much of that Christmas Eve night in the emergency room.
He didn’t mean to hurt me, but that’s
little consolation when you’re hurtling out of a tree on a direct path to the hard
ground below. It wasn’t how I envisioned passing what started out as a rather ordinary
and even a little bit boring day.
Like most children, my brother and
I thought Christmas would never come each year. The wait seemed interminable. We’d
both outgrown our belief in Santa Claus by then, but Christmas remained a magical
time for tidings of great joy, presents piled beneath the tree and family gathered
around an overloaded dinner table. Even when my family didn’t have an abundance
of material riches, we had a bounty of blessings.
That Christmas Eve day, though, the
hours passed as swiftly as a slug sliding along a sidewalk. The neighborhood was
quiet and my older brother and I had nobody to play with but each other, always
a recipe for some bickering and a crying jag or two. Paul is only 18 months older
than I am, but in those days he was, well, let’s call it husky, while I had the
physique of Olive Oyl, minus the clown-shoe-sized feet.
One of our favorite pastimes was climbing
the big tree in our backyard. Paul had nailed seating platforms at different spots
among the branches, most about midway up. Being a typical big brother, he often
had little patience where his younger sister was concerned. And on this particular
day, he seemed determined to take his usual needling to a higher level.
No matter where I settled in the tree,
he rousted me out of my spot. “Move, I want to sit there,” he’d insist,
and I’d scramble to another platform. And then he’d want me to leave that seat,
too. I don’t remember how many times he did that to me, but finally I’d had enough.
Now in hindsight, I should’ve said
something like, “Okay, fine. If you want to be like that I’ll just go do something
else.” But common-sense, discretion-is-the-better-part-of-valor decisions often
don’t occur to children, and I was no exception, especially on this day. And so
when my brother ordered me off yet another platform, I refused to budge.
He demanded at least once or twice
more and I continued to defy him. Growing ever more frustrated, he reached out and
shoved me as he ordered me to move one last time. Unfortunately, I wasn’t hanging
on and went sailing backwards out of the tree.
As I fell, my lower half thankfully
caught up with the top part of my body because instead of hitting the ground head
first, I landed on my back. I must’ve blacked out, at least briefly, because I had
visions passing before my mind’s eye, but they weren’t scenes from my life. Oddly,
enough, they were images from a circus, of all things. I had no clue what it meant
then or now. To be honest, circuses creeped me out a little. But that’s a story
for another day.
The next thing I knew, my mom knelt
by my side with a stricken look on her face, asking me if I was all right. She’d
been in the kitchen when she heard a thud and looked out the window that overlooked
our backyard. I can only imagine her panic when she saw me lying as still as death
on the ground.
By the grace of God, I didn’t break
my neck or my back, either, and except for a very sore shoulder I seemed no worse
for the wear. My mom still hoped to go to midnight Mass, as was our Christmas Eve
custom, and she insisted on washing my hair in the kitchen sink while we waited
for my father, a police officer, to get home from work. I could’ve done without
the jostling, but I didn’t intend to celebrate the birth of the Baby Jesus with
unkempt locks.
As the afternoon wore on it became
evident that my right shoulder suffered the brunt of the impact. It had swelled
to softball size by the time my father walked through the door, and it was obvious
I needed an X-ray. So off to the hospital we went.
Now bear in mind that by now it’s
early to mid-evening and—this being the 1960s—most businesses had closed for the
holiday and people were hunkered down at home, theirs or someone else’s, knocking
back eggnog and nibbling on candy canes. (Or whatever else people did on Christmas
Eve before 24-hour stores and the Internet.) I remember having to wait while they
summoned a doctor to come talk to me and my parents.
The verdict: I’d broken my shoulder.
The solution: taping my arm to my stomach, wrapping my upper body mummy-style so
the only movement I could manage was to wiggle my fingers.
Despite being in pain, I still wanted
to go to midnight Mass. I loved everything about it: seeing the luminaries lining
the street leading to the church; singing Silent Night and other beloved yuletide
hymns; being wedged, warm and cozy, in the pew between my parents; hearing the scriptural
reading of the nativity story.
Some Christmases in Florida are so
warm that everyone’s in short sleeves, often with legs bared, but that year it was
chilly outside. I’d looked forward to wearing a long-sleeved shirt beneath my new
red-plaid jumper, but being taped up like that limited my wardrobe choices. Whatever
I selected needed to button up the front so I could leave one button undone and
stick my hand out the opening. Finally, after much consternation and gnashing of
teeth (my mom’s, not mine) we decided on a summer-weight dress in pastel green.
Despite having looked forward to midnight
Mass and insisting I didn’t want to miss it, I was miserable once we were seated.
The pews felt even harder than usual, and rubbing elbows with anyone on my right
side was a painful proposition. The Catholic worship ritual of stand up, sit down,
kneel sapped the last of my strength, and I slunk back into my seat. I couldn’t
wait to hear the priest dismiss us with the traditional “Go in peace.”
My parents always allowed us to open
one small present on Christmas Eve after Mass. But I had little enthusiasm for that
privilege on this night. I went through the motions, eager to hit the bed, close
my eyes and, hopefully, find relief from the ache in my shoulder.
I don’t remember the rest of our Christmas
celebration that year, but I’m sure I wasn’t in my usual festive mood. The years
have taught me, however, that it was but a small inconvenience in the grander scheme
of things.

A holiday memory from
author KaLyn Cooper:
The following is a true story. On
December 9th, Macho Marine and I will celebrate our 36th Anniversary. That’s a lot
of Christmases. The following will always be the most memorable.
Thirty years ago while Macho Marine
was the active duty Captain in charge of a Marine Corps Reserve Center in central
Virginia, his Marines handled everything for Toys for Tots. After collecting all
the boxes filled with new and used toys, they would set up tables in the drill hall
and sort everything. Social Services and churches would send people over on the
Saturday before Christmas to “shop” for the free toys. The day after the
big event, we boxed up the very few remaining toys, most worse for wear, and loaded
them into the trucks to be donated to an orphanage.
Snow spit from heavy gray clouds as
the ancient car—which had seen better days two decades before—sputtered through
the gate. The driver’s door groaned as it swung open.
“I promised I’d ask,” the
haggard woman told the children. “Wait in the car.”
Hopeful faces pressed against the
closed windows as the woman limped toward the pickup truck we were filling with
boxes of unchosen toys. Her worn bedroom slippers whispered as they slid across
the pavement. Biting wind plastered her thin cotton dress against her frail body.
She wore no makeup. Only the lines and dark circles of a tired woman colored her
“Excuse me, gentlemen.”
She caught sight of me and added, “Ma’am.” She looked down as if embarrassed,
then over her shoulder at her car. As though the children had given her strength
to continue, she asked in a quiet voice, “I know I shouldda been here yesterday,
but, you see, my car didn’t start, so I borrowed my sister’s today.” She didn’t
make eye contact with anyone, but shot nervous glances at the Marines in utilities
who were now drawn to the situation.
She stepped back, and stood silently
for a long minute.
Macho Marine and I exchanged a look.
With seven years of marriage behind us, and six years dating before we stood in
the church and pledged the rest of our lives to each other, neither needed to say
a word. We stopped loading and approached her.
“Can I help you, ma’am?”
Macho Marine asked in what was his gentle voice, which in reality was a fraction
less commanding than usual.
She flinched. I gave him “that”
look I’d perfected early in our marriage that clearly said dial it down, Marine.
He tried again. “I’m the captain
in charge.” He pulled me next to him. “And this is my wife, KaLyn. What
can we do for you?”
Relief washed over her pale face.
Another glance back at the car was all it took. “Do you have any toys left?
I know I should have been here yesterday—”
“Yes, ma’am. We do.” Macho
Marine’s eyes scanned the car. “How many children do you have?”
“Six,” she proudly answered,
then hurriedly said, “but if I could just get one toy, they can all share it”
My heart broke.
“No, ma’am.” Full command
had returned to my husband’s voice. “We can’t allow that.”
I watched her whole body and spirit
collapse in on itself.
“We have plenty of toys for your
children.” He wouldn’t let her leave with just one toy. “Do you want to
pick them out, or do you want the kids to do it?”
“Well…I…uhm—” she stared
at the car.
“Usually the kids pick the toys,”
he added helpfully.
She flicked her hand and car doors
flew open. The rag-tag children poured out to join their mother. The hand-me-downs
they wore had been reused far too often, none seemed to fit their scrawny bodies.
Each overly-polite child hesitantly
chose one toy from those remaining on the tables, and returned to their mother’s
“Thank you so much.” She
gathered her children and turned to leave.
“What about your other toys?
You get four each, you know.” Macho Marine lied and defied his men to argue
with him.
For the next fifteen minutes, the
Marines assisted the children, opening boxes and guiding them to age-appropriate
toys. By the time they left, their arms overflowed. The Marines kept slipping them
more and more toys. With the names, ages and address in hand, a requirement for
participating, we watched the smoke-spewing car leave…filled with happiness.
Three hours later, the woman met us
at her door, butcher knife in hand. It was her only weapon in the uninsulated shack
half-way up a mountain on an unplowed dirt road. The old iron cook stove served
as heat source and for food prep. It was a scene that belonged fifty years earlier,
not in the mid 1980’s when every home had a microwave and central heat.
We carried in bags of groceries and
wrapped toys for each child. One of the Marines was also a fireman, and he’d brought
coats and boots from their service project. Another had gotten a tree donated from
a closing lot, and nailed two boards to the bottom so it stood relatively straight.
The woman, beside herself with joy,
hunched in a kitchen chair and wept. While the children helped place boxes under
the tree, and I filled her nearly-bare refrigerator.
With hugs and handshakes, we left
them to celebrate a truly joyous Christmas.

Interview with Diane Saxon

Why did you write this book?
Long before I had any idea I was going to become an author I
had a scene in my head and my hero was Flynn. It was such a vivid picture in my
mind I felt compelled to write it down.
I started writing books, became published, then last year we
moved house and this two page scene was at the bottom of a drawer in my bedside
table and I read it through and had to write the story. The scene is virtually unchanged
and Flynn is just as much a bad boy as I first imagined him.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. Sub-genres dependent on mood. But I love reading, I
read vast amounts and always have. I change my mind on a daily basis as to who is
my favourite author, my favourite genre. So, here are a few:
What is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own characters)?
Well, again, I think this is transient for me dependent on my
mood. One that always sticks in my mind is Tim by Colleen McCullough. I read the
book and that character stuck with me. When I saw the film, it was very different,
but the character was still hauntingly beautiful.
Do you enjoy films and/or
TV shows? Which are your favorites?
I’m not big on TV, but I love films. Good old fashioned romances
with guts. Dirty Dancing, Officer and a Gentleman and who doesn’t love Ghost. Oh,
but please don’t give me unexpected tearjerker ending. Really. There is nothing
worse than feeling that I’ve totally wasted my time watching a film where the hero/heroine
drops dead in the last few frames. And believe me, there are more of those out there
than you realize. No! Don’t do it to me.
What are you working on
at the moment, and what are we likely to see from you in the coming months?
Well, wow. My head is full and my fingers have been flying. So
here we go.
Her Captured Groom – Historical romance. Written at Nanowrimo
in November and fully finished. Book 1 in a series of three.
Hawk’s Lady – Historical romance, Book 2. 45k words written so
far – should end at around 60k
Being Banshee – 48k into a 60k book – paranormal romance (sssshhh
– that’s all I’m saying until it’s critiqued) Will be finished by mid April.
Now, I don’t normally write two books at a time, but both were
clamouring for attention.
I have two more in mind for the paranormal series
Barbara’s Sin – Book 2 Disarmed & Dangerous – skeleton plan
