Hello and welcome to my blog for another round of Meet the Characters! Today I am featuring a guest blogger who has graciously agreed to let me do a character interview, which is my favorite kind of interview. Join me in welcoming author, D’Ann Lindun, and her characters from Falling Hard (part of the Crashing into Love box set). It’s a fantastic contemporary western romance with wonderful characters so without further ado here is the interview with Gage and Teagan.
How did you first meet your writer?
At a brainstorming session with the other authors in this set!
Did you ever think that your life would end up being in a book?
Teagan~ Maybe! I’m a famous model, so it was a possibility!
What are your favorite scenes in your book: the action, the dialog or the romance?
Gage~ Action! Teagan~ Oh, the romance!
Do you like the way the book ended?
Gage~ Yes, I’m happily married now!
What is your least favorite characteristic your writer has attributed to you?
Gage~ As a hunter. I’m an animal lover and I don’t love that.
Do have any secret aspirations that your author doesn’t know about?
Both~ to star in an ad decrying horse slaughter!
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
What are you proudest of?
Teagan~ surviving a plane crash and not falling apart.
What do you like most about where you live?
We moved to Sante Fe and we love the people and the scenery!
What word makes you the happiest?
Seven planes lift off…seven planes crash…seven stories of struggle, passion and love in the barren Canadian Wilderness, the coast of England, or the steamy heat of a tropical island. Romance hangs in the balance between survival and death.
Just when she’d begun to relax, the plane took a sudden, wild plunge downward.
“Shit!” Teagan grabbed for the nearest thing to hold onto and found the upper arm of her seatmate. She wrapped her fingers around his bicep and held on for dear life.
He woke, scrubbed his face with both hands and glanced at her. “What’s going on?”
“I think we’re going down,” she managed through tight lips.
He raised an eyebrow. “Here?”
“We’re crashing, you idiot!”
The plane plunged and dipped again. Brooklyn screamed. Teagan might have, too. She was too scared to know for sure.
The plane seemed quieter all of a sudden.
Teagan risked a glance out her window and gasped. The propeller on her side no longer worked. The plane faltered. Tipped to its side.
“Dear God, we’re about to crash.” She moaned. “We’re all going to die.”
“Just hold onto me, honey. You’ll be all right.” Her seatmate’s calm tone soothed her a little.
When he held out his big hand, she grabbed on. How could he be so composed when she was terrified out of her mind?
Buy the Book:
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, two ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!
