Let Love Spring:A Historical Spring Collection—Jodie's novelette is called An Angel for the Cowboy. Here's the blurb:

When the bank threatens foreclosure on Essie Love's home, it's up to her to provide for her sisters. She’ll do whatever it takes to save them, even if it means marrying a stranger.

Jud Steele is wanted for a crime he didn't commit. Wounded and left for dead, he lands on Essie's doorstep. While she nurses him back to health, he finds himself longing for a home and family.

Can two desperate people find a path that leads to what they both need?

Welcome Jodie! It's great to have a fellow Stitches Thru Time author here. I understand this is your first contracted story.

That's right. Celebrate Lit Publishing contacted me after reading one of my indie books, Hearts Tightly Knit. The editor wanted to put together a historical collection and asked me to be a part of it.

Wow. Pretty cool. Is there a common theme with each of the stories?

They each had to incorporate spring within the story. My heroine is determined to marry by spring so she can save her home and sisters.

It sounds like there's a lot more to the story.

:) Most definitely, but you'll have to read it to find out the twists and turns my characters go through.

What was your greatest challenge in writing this book?

Essie has two younger sisters. I only grew up with two older brothers and had no experience when it came to the dynamics of sisters interacting. I asked two friends of mine to be beta readers to make sure I got things accurate.

What can you tell us about your heroine?

Essie Love writes dime novels. After being jilted by her ex-fiancĂ©, she's having a difficult time coming up with a love story where her hero doesn't turn out being a villain. :) 

Chuckle. I imagine you have some interesting scenes because of that. You mentioned she's looking for a husband to save her. Does she have anyone particular in her sights?

Nobody in particular. She advertises in the local newspaper for a husband. Here's what she's seeking:

Wanted: A man of faith and means, willing to enter a marriage of convenience by April 14th. Must be a fine and upstanding citizen. No cowboys or drifters need apply.

I can imagine all the fun you had with that. :) Do you have a theme in each of your books?

My tagline is Stories Where Hope and Quirky Meet. I try to create quirky characters because I think they are fun and we each have something that makes us quirky. :) But most importantly what I want to convey in each story I write is that true hope can only be found in Christ.

Thanks so much for being with us today!
