Looking in the Window: A Fun Blog Hop Featuring Mountain of Love and Danger

Thanks to Lisa Lickel, who posted about her children’s book, Matthew LaCraft, The YankeeBoy, last week at Living Our Faith Out Loud for inviting me.



She asked me the following questions about Mountain of Love and Danger, a re-telling of the fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.

What is the name of your character? Is he/ she fictional or historic?

Jack Greenthumb is the fictitious main character in Mountain of Love and Danger.

When and where is the story set?

The story’s set in current times, but in a fantasy world called Fairwilde Kingdom.

What an honor to have Sandra celebrating with Peering Through Life's Window on release day! To enter to win the e-book of The Yuletide Angel, leave a comment and an e-mail address.

Hi Sandra. First, tell us a little about yourself.
I write historical romance, am married to a retired man (he robbed the cradle … okay, maybe not) and am the mom of a young adult. When I’m not recording the lives and loves of fictional people, I’m cooking, cleaning, reading, gardening, watching NASCAR, or cheering on the Carolina Panthers football team.
Sounds a lot like the things I'm doing. Lots of writers loved to read as children. How about you? If so, what did you read?
