Hi, this is Terri. I’m so excited to see my book feature on the RCRW website. Since I’ve belonged to the chapter since its inception, I have to say this chapter rocks!!!
I belong to a blogspot with several other Inspirational Romantic Suspense authors at http://ladiesofsuspense.blogspot.com/. Every Tuesday I post an interview with one of the characters from one of the four Love Inspired Suspense Romances that are out each month. Below you will see the interview I posted with Megan McClain. I had a great time writing this book. I tried to give it a Law and Order feel and since the book was set in New York city where I once lived it was a hoot to revisit places I’d been while living there.
I hope you enjoy this interview
Today we’re welcoming MEGAN MCCLAIN from DOUBLE THREAT CHRISTMAS, released December 2008 by TERRI REED. Wow, you’ve just had quite an adventure.
1. Tell us a little about yourself and how you came to be in the midst of such suspense.
I grew up smothered by love and affection from my three brothers, my mother and the majority of the Boston Police Department. My fahter was a BPD officer killed in the line of duty when I was a child. The trauma from his death affected all of us in different ways. I’m slowly learning to cope with how it affected me but it’s been a long struggle.
So when I found two dead men in the gallery one snowy night, I thought for sure I wouldn’t have the strength to cope any longer.
2. So, during the book you met PAUL WALLACE. Tell us a bit about him. What was your first impression? When did you know it was love?
Paul was the homicide detective assigned to investigate the double murders in the gallery. Tall, blond and handsome. Certainly every girls dream, at least he made my heart flutter, but when he looked at me with suspicion in his eyes, I knew he thought I was capable of the crime. As hard as I knew it would be I wanted to prove my innocence to him. Though why I cared what he thought was a mystery until I thought I was going to die and then I realized that I loved him. Knowing I wouldn’t get a chance to tell him how I felt was nearly as horrific as facing death.
3. What strengths/skills do you have? What is your greatest weakness?
Well, I’m observant and orderly to the point of obsession. Sometimes my need for control pushes people away.
4. What scares you?
People finding out my secret. If people knew the real me, they wouldn’t want to be around me.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’d be braver. Though Paul tells me all the time I’m brave, but I don’t feel brave.
6. Where are you in your faith at the start of your story?
I believe but question God and His love for me.
7. Where are you in your faith at the end of the story?
Through Paul I’ve come to understand that God made me the way I am and of course He loves me. Knowing that has given me a peace I didn’t realize I lacked.
8. You’ve got a scripture at the beginning of the story. Tell us why this scripture is significant.
Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadows. James 1:17
This verse is such a good reminder that everything good in life comes from God and He is faithful and trustworthy.
9. If you could be a dessert what would you be and why?
Oh, my. Anything chocolate. But if I had to choose, I’d say Mississippi Mud Pie because it’s layered with chocolate brownie and marshmallow and more creamy chocolate on top. Gooey and yummy.
