Linda, what book(s) have changed your life?
This may sound strange, but the scriptures have changed my life immensely. I canâ€™t tell you how much they have influenced me in my life. I try to read them on a regular basis. In fact, one of my favorite stories in the scriptures is Joseph, who was sold into Egypt by his brothers. It always touches my heart when he recognizes them during the famine, as they ask for help. He doesnâ€™t hate them for what they did but rather teaches them a lesson.
Also, the story of Captain Moroni, the Title of Liberty, and the Freemen has always intrigued me each time I read it. When theyâ€™re fighting for their freedom against the Kingmen, I feel Iâ€™m right there beside them. The fight for liberty has always touched my heart.
I too love the scriptures. Who are your favorite authors?
Iâ€™m probably prejudice, but my favorite author is my daughter, Serena Clarke. I absolutely love her stories. Theyâ€™re fantasy romances, but what I love about them is that each book in The Isian Series is about the fight for truth and freedom, and the women in her books are strong characters. I like that. They donâ€™t stand idly by, allowing the men to thwart the enemy. In one way, itâ€™s a lot like your fantasies, Anna. Your women are strong and fight for what they believe.
I agree with you, Serena’s characters are awesome. Thank you fort he compliment…Tell us why you wrote your new book. What is it about?
Â I absolutely love stories that are page-turners, which have some mystery, romance, and suspense. I love a romance where the man and woman know they are meant for one another. Even though there are trials along the way, they never give up on the other. I also like strong women characters in a story.
In this swashbuckling romance, a sinister plot has just been uncovered and its up to a former patriot and a young nurse to discover who is behind it. Caroline is engaged to the future mayor of Laketown, a man of influence and greatly respected. But all that changes when she overhears a conspiracy behind closed doors. After being discovered, she runs for her life. Caroline needs to report her findings, but whom can she trust? When she asks Jesse Conover for help, the adventure begins.
Sounds interesting. Where did you get your inspiration for The Rebel Series?
All three books in this series are love stories set in the late 1700s. The Rebel Series was inspired by the stories of the American patriots who fought to be free from the dictatorship and tyranny of a king. Itâ€™s a theme that is dear to me. Liberty is something that I cherish. Itâ€™s a precious gift given to us by those who fought so valiantly. When I read the stories of the American Revolution, my heart swells with gratitude for those loyal patriots. When I look at our flag and pledge allegiance to it, tears well up in my eyes. When I listen to The Star Spangled Banner or God Bless the U.S.A., I get choked up. Especially when itâ€™s sung by a choir.
I too love those patriotic songs. Where can we find your books?
