My guest today is Author Janet Tronstad, a fellow Love Inspired Author and a good friend.
“This is Janet Tronstad and I’ve been pondering just how often losing-and-finding is the dance of love. You’ve probably noticed it in your own life – it can be as trivial as losing a gift from a loved one or as devastating as losing the loved one themselves. In my latest Dry Creek novella, ‘A Family for Dry Creek’ (from the book ‘Small-Town Moms’), my heroine, Maegan Shay, is a woman who lost her parents while a child and soon after lost her two sisters to different adoptions. After becoming an adult, Maegan works to find her sisters.
The novella begins when Maegan finds out that one of her sisters has died and left a daughter behind. The daughter is living with her uncle, Clint Parker, and Maegan is determined to make contact and find out if the little girl is all right. The story of Clint and Maegan is one of my favorites.
In their honor – and for all of us who have lost and found someone – I am sponsoring a Lost Valentine Writing Challenge on eHarlequin this month. Readers will write short 250-word stories that must include a lost and found Valentine as well as some other items reminiscent of my popular Dry Creek series (published by Harlequin Love Inspired).
The winner will receive a $25 Barnes and Noble gift certificate. The contest starts on February 7 and runs to February 11. Just follow the links to http://community.eharlequin.com. I’ll look forward to seeing you there – even if you don’t want to write a short story of your own, it is great fun to read what others have written.
In the meantime, I’d love to know your experiences with ‘lost and found’ in your life. So, if you have a minute, please share.”–Janet Tronstad
Thanks, Janet. The Lost Valentine Writing Challenge sounds like FUN! Recently I posted my review of one of Janet’s delightful, fun Dry Creek Romances. Here’s the link to my old blog, if you want to read that review.
