Carole: Toby, can you tell us what you do?
Toby: I'm co-owner (with my sister Caroline--whose story is told in book three) of Undiscovered Treasures, a shop filled with antiques, collectibles. and junk.
Carole: That's fascinating, and I know Caroline's cover made me want to delve right into your shop! Will you give us a clue of what the problem is in your book?
Toby: Sure. To begin with, there were several break-ins in the middle of the night. I jokingly called the person a "ghost". He/She didn't steal anything at first. But when things began getting out of hand--breaking into my friend's flower/landscaping business and making a mess, then kidnapping her--well that didn't go over so good with me. I figured if this was to be settled, I needed to dig in and find a few clues.
Carole: Do I get a hint of romance with this Amy?
Toby: Maybe. I can't give away all the secrets of the book, but she is a very good friend who puts up with my dilly-dallying. She's smart, owns her own business, and is beautiful.
Carole: I see I won't get much more from you right now, so I'll ask Amy a few questions. Amy, give me a hint of what the story is about. Toby mentioned break-ins...
Amy (laughs): Several break-ins. It's an exciting time, and Toby and I, with the help of our town police chief, do our best to find out what's going on. There's a missing treasure chest, a stolen van, a head injury, suspicious new visitors in town, a kidnapping that Toby's already mentioned, and (sigh) my sister comes home.
Carole: You don't sound too excited about your sister's return...
Amy: I'm not. She's spoiled, wild and trouble. Those three words describe her perfectly.
Carole: Toby, can you tell me one thing about Amy not many would notice?
Toby: Just one? She loves lilacs. Oh, and one more: she has hazel eyes, which means green and brown, right? But sometimes, rarely, the color blue will shine through. Not often, and only at special times...
Carole: And I don't think you'll tell me about those special times, will you?
Carole: Amy? What about you? Can you share a not-so-well-known item about Toby?
Amy: Love to! He's a regular jokester and doesn't like for people to see that he's a gentle soul, and everybody loves him. He spends time after shop hours with our church's youth group and the community theater, which he worked hard to get off the ground. It's a huge success.
Carole: Sounds like the perfect place to live. Can you tell me--either one of you--when does your book release?
Toby and Amy together: July, this year!
Carole: And it will be on Amazon, right, for us to buy?
Toby: Yep. Here's Carole's author page where you can see all her books:
Carole: do you have a blurb for us?
Amy: Sure. Here it is:
