It’s Writer Wednesday, and you know what that means! We’ve got an amazing author – in this case, romance writer Angela Scavone – with us to share a bit about themselves and their latest book.
Because we love authors! They give us their hearts on a page, and we soak it up and come begging for more.
Angela has no author photo to share with us, so I’m giving you this cute doggy. But she DID have stuff to say about writing and her newest release, A Journey Home, so read on!
Which type of romance do you love most, and why?
I love romantic comedies, anything that can make me laugh has my love and respect. I love them because I love to laugh and have fun!
Name one interesting thing you learned in researching/writing your last book:
In A Journey Home, the main character’s job is to bring the bodies of fallen soldiers home. In researching for this I found the protocols and respect that all facets of the Military take in honoring their fallen is absolutely awe-inspiring.
What’s your favorite romance novel of all time, and why?
My favorite romance novel of all time is Beneath a Blood Red Moon by Heather Graham. I love it because it is an intricately woven tale that weaves in multiple time periods to tell the whole story of this woman turned vampire and her life and love. The fact that this woman has lived a century and in each time period has fallen in love with the same soul plus has an enemy in Jack the Ripper who comes back to the current time period…ohhh it’s good – now I must read it again.
A Bit About A Journey Home
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Content Warning: Some explicit language
Stephanie Tyler’s sole job is to fly overseas to war torn areas of the world to retrieve and escort the bodies of fallen soldiers back home to the United States. It is a tough and emotional job but she is honored for the privilege. Her duty also helps her to escape her past and her failed marriage.
But those flights have become increasingly more dangerous and she is forced to have a partner accompany her. Much to Stephanie’s surprise and dismay, she is partnered up with her ex-husband, Captain “D.A.” Douglas Aston.
From the moment Captain D.A. enters the scene, he irritates her. It could have something to do with the fact he slept with her best friend while they were married. As they go on several missions together, Stephanie is forced to be courteous and professional with D.A. even though the very sight of him irritates her beyond comprehension.
Then, Stephanie’s cheating, husband stealing, ex-best friend is killed in Afghanistan and Stephanie and D.A. must escort her body home. While executing this difficult duty, a myriad of conflicting emotions makes Stephanie ponder how short life really is . . . and to question her own ability to forgive.
A Bit About Angela:
Angela lives in Ontario, Canada sharing her home with her father and her two much-loved pups (and one evil cat). She currently works for the Board of Education behind the scenes supporting and analyzing student data, however, in her spare time, apart from her avid love of storytelling, she likes to read, spend time with family and friends and concoct dairy free recipes from scratch. Sometimes she wins some, and sometimes she loses some – tofu, banana and peanut butter pudding we are looking at you.
