Deidre's Secret




Deidre's Secret
Coming Wild Rose Press, Climbing Roses Line

When Deidre Roux has premonitions of danger, watch out! Faced with thwarting bank robbers and protecting others from the high school bully, she must reveal her secret to her new friend, Mark Cummings. Can she convince him that she truly sees a world of imminent danger headed their way before it’s too late?
Not only must Mark deal with his girlfriend’s premonitions, which he has a hard time believing, but his convicted uncle has returned home. Humor, suspense and conflict rule the day as Deidre’s crazy aunt tries to write a true crime story on Mark's uncle. Deidre attempts to keep her out of it before she gets mixed up in a much darker business of robberies and murder—her own, if she’s not careful.
I've always loved stories of mystery and intrigue...and adding a paranormal element adds even more fun. When I first wrote about Deidre, she was an adult, serving as an officer in the military, not wanting anyone to know she sees snapshots of future events. Afraid she'd get kicked out of the Army and she gets mixed up in a life and death mess then.
I really enjoyed creating her character and wondered how she would have handled her special gift, that sometimes felt like a curse, when she was a teen. And so I went back and wrote her earlier story: Deidre's Secret.

Thanks, Ladonna! And thanks, Vonda! I was so excited to get such a neat cover. I'm always hopeful, but you never know what you'll get when you get the email--here's your new cover. Cringing, it's like pausing before you open up the email for a new review, or...a response to a submission. :)
