Please share the opening lines of this book:

A loud, rolling roar of thunder shocked Jack awake from a dead sleep. It took a second for him to identify it as harmless, holding back from grabbing the nearby pistol from the coffee table. He turned onto his back, the couch springs whining at his movement, and stared at the ceiling, taking long, deep breaths to calm his racing heart.


Please share a few Fun facts about this book…

  • Snow, snow, snow! If you’ve never walked in snowshoes, you’ll learn in this book!
  • And how to use them as weapons…
  • Librarians are powerful people!
  • Small towns hold the biggest secrets!
  • Marie is based on Abbie Mills, the Sheriff from the Sleepy Hollow television series!
  • This is my 20th published book, believe it or not!


Was there a scene in this book that was harder to write than others?

Not to give anything away, but there’s a spot where a major decision is made by one of the characters without discussing it with the other. That’s Not Good, needless to say! I fought with trying to figure out how to make it work and keep them in character, despite the ongoing conflict.


“Liam…” She choked up.
“Don’t cry for me, Kara. I’ll see you soon—either in Valhalla or Helheim.”
A soft click signaled he’d turned his radio off, leaving her in silence.
Her angry shout echoed off the trees.
“Son of a bitch!” She yanked off the helmet and threw it down as hard as she could. It bounced off the hard snow and rolled along, coming to rest in the ditch left by her tracks.

Book Info:

Liam Wolfson, the professional assassin, is dead. His new persona, Jack Hammerson, lives in a small town in Colorado, happy helping out as many of the townsfolk as he can. It’s his way of working toward some kind of redemption for his sins. Until one night when an amnesiac woman falls into his arms, calling out his old name…

Kara remembers nothing about her previous life, only brief glimpses of an old lover and their time together… but she knows her fate is entwined with Liam’s. Then there’s the familiarity with all things Valkyrie and Valhalla. She worries she might be going crazy.

Liam has worked hard to hide all traces of his old life, but Kara rips old wounds open as their old feelings for each other come rushing back. But it’s not just Kara who’s come to town looking for answers. When mercenaries arrive looking for Liam, he’ll need Kara to remember what she’s capable of if either of them is going to survive…

    Even as a child, I had trouble choosing a favorite from Norse mythology.
