|Risking her life to save him is easy. Risking her heart to give him a second chance is impossible.|
First Responder Ronnie Spencer has a no-dating-firefighters rule. She lost her father to a fire, and won't risk the heartbreak of losing someone else. But when Steve McNeal returns, Ronnie's heart is tested. How can she swear off dating a firefighter when she has to work with the one man she used to love? When the unthinkable happens, Ronnie has doubts. How can a loving God allow tragedy to stalk her life again? As her faith wavers, Ronnie must decide. Will their blossoming relationship be quickly extinguished by the very thing she feared, or will Ronnie trust God and allow her heart to be rescued--even if that means giving it to a firefighter?
Sounds interesting and I can't wait to get my hands on this novel!

[PP&K] Rescue Me is the title for your book and that title brings to mind not only a TV show but also a song. Beyond that it seems there is a dual meaning to the title. In a literary sense, tell me more about what the title means to you and what you hope the reader will gain from it.
[PP&K] To market a book an author has to know not only the target audience but also what readers would want to experience from a story. Tell me: what does your book bring to the reader?
[SN] A path to healing. There can be restoration. Love wins. God will help you overcome. Love of family. And hopefully, a feeling for what Colorado is like and the adventures that can be found.
[PP&K] Readers seem to devour books about firefighters, paramedics, police officers, and military, etc. These books accentuate the Type A/Alpha personality of a man. Tell us how you developed your character, Steve McNeal.

[PP&K] What books, movies, or shows had the most impact on your story Rescue Me? Was it a combination of many elements? Was it a gumbo stew of ideas?
[PP&K] Fun Question: Who is your favorite classic author and why?
[SN] I was very partial to Charles Dickens growing up. Maybe because he was the first one I knew about. At least that I remember. I would have to say though that Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables wins it all hands down. I loved the antics of Anne. The fiery personality, the situations she ended up in. Love that book and the movies with Megan Follows and Colleen Dewhurst. Fantastic story telling.
