About the Author
Although Sara Walter Ellwood has long ago left the farm for the glamour of the big town, she draws on her experiences growing up on a small hobby farm in West Central Pennsylvania to write her contemporary westerns. She’s been married to her college sweetheart for over 20 years, and they have two teenagers and one very spoiled rescue cat named Penny. She longs to visit the places she writes about and jokes she’s a cowgirl at heart stuck in Pennsylvania suburbia. Sara Walter Ellwood is a multi-published and international Amazon bestselling author of the anthology series Cowboy Up. She also dabbles in the paranormal genre with her The Hunter’s Dagger Series, which was previously published under the pen name Cera duBois.
Interview with Sara Walter Ellwood
Why did you write this book?
I actually came up with the idea for this book while writing the heroine’s parents’ romance back in 2010. When Heartstrings (Singing to the Heart book 1) was eventually published in 2013, I just had to wait a few years to write it—to allow the heroine to grow up.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Oh, wow, that’s a hard question because I read so many: contemporary romance, paranormal romance, science fiction (I’m a HUGE Star Wars geek), straight historical and romance, fantasy romance… I really can’t pick one.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
It really is a tie between Scarlett O’Hara and Princess Leia (from the Star Wars Legacy universe—the old Expanded Universe).
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on A Hunter’s Wings–book 3, of my paranormal series, The Hunter’s Dagger Series. I hope to have it released by January. I’m also plotting and doing research for a time travel historical YA fantasy set in early sixteenth century England/Scotland. The story will involve two fairies who go back in time to prevent another time-traveling fairy from assassinating King Henry VIIs daughter before she can marry the Stuart King, James IV, which would prevent the eventual secession of the Scottish kings to the English throne.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Sex, drugs, and country music. That was the lifestyle for Emily Kendall, a Texas girl who hit it big on the country music charts—until she found herself pregnant and battling addiction. Now out of rehab and seeking a new life for herself and her unborn child, Emily returns to her hometown of McAllister. The last thing she’s looking for is trouble, no matter how good it looks in uniform.
A widower, single father, and former Army Ranger struggling with PTSD, Sheriff EJ Cowley has his own demons to battle while keeping folks safe. The last thing he needs is a troubled celebrity speeding through town in her bright red Maserati. But when someone from Emily’s past threatens her safety and the peace of McAllister, EJ has no choice but to protect her. And soon both will learn there’s more to the other than meets the eye. And that wounded hearts can love again.
