And here’s Lynette!
Hello Lynette. It’s great to have you here. Can you tell us a little about yourself? I’m a mom, a wife and a writer. Some days it’s not necessarily in that order. LOL. I homeschool my son and write. That pretty much sums up my life.
I can totally identify with that, Lynette! So, do you have a favorite Genre to both read and right write? Romantic Suspense is definitely my fave in reading and writing.
Writers always have influences when it comes to their writing. Who influenced you the most as you were developing your writing career? I grew up reading, but when it comes to writing, authors such at Dee Henderson, Terri Blackstock and Brandilyn Collins were the authors I studied in order to learn how to write a good suspense.
When did you know you wanted to be an author? It’s funny, I didn’t really set out to become a published author. But I did have a story running around in my head and I decided to sit down and write it one day. After that, I was hooked. That first book was really hard finish, but once it was done, the sense of accomplishment was so amazing, I had to see if I could do it again…and again…and again…LOL.
Can you tell us about your journey to publication? This may sound silly, but it was pretty much an “accident” by God’s design. My husband travelled a lot with his job and I was lonely. So, with this story in my head, I started writing. That’s the key right there. Then I found a book, Danger in the Shadows. I fell in love with this story and emailed the author, Dee Henderson, to tell her how wonderful she was and how I wanted to be like her when I grew up. <G> She wrote me back and ended up being my mentor for about three years. We kind of lost touch as life interfered, then caught up later when I started being serious about trying to get published. I sold my first book to Love Inspired in 2007 and the rest is history.
If you were not a writer what would you like to be? Probably something in the medical field. Medicine fascinates me. Either that or a criminal lawyer.
Oh wow! So tell me, outside reading and writing what do you like to do? I love to see different places. I like to travel more now than I used to even though I abhor flying on planes, but I do it to experience new things.
I always like asking the next question…if you could have a meal with 3 living people who would you choose and why? Dee Henderson because I’ve never met her face to face. Jeffery Deaver because the man is a master plotter and I would love to pick his brain. AND…my buddy, Dawn Barnes, who moved away from me and I miss her!
Here is the back cover blurb for A Killer Among Us…
What happens when the hunter . . . becomes the hunted?
Kit Kenyon is a first-rate hostage negotiator. Noah Lambert is a good detective with excellent instincts. These new partners have hardly had time to get used to each other when they are thrown into a grisly murder case. As evidence mounts up and more victims are found, Kit and Noah realize they are on the hunt for a serial killer. The problem is, he may be hunting one of them too.
With nail-biting suspense, clever plot twists, and a hint of romance, A Killer Among Us is the latest thriller from Lynette Eason.
