First, tell us a little about yourself. I’m married with three children and live in Oklahoma City. I’m a CPA and work in healthcare but my real love is great stories. I don’t want to be mindlessly entertained; I want to be moved emotionally. I spend my weekends going to basketball, football, soccer, and volleyball games and love every minute. Lots of writers were young readers. What about you? If so, what did you read? I was an avid reader. I remember winning a most read books contest in 2nd grade and getting a free book.

A Warm Welcome to Christine Lindsay!   To enter to win an e-book of Veiled at Midnight leave a comment and e-mail address below. I BELIEVE IN PERFECT FAMILIES—by Christine Lindsay   I used to envy people who grew up in perfect homes. Then I discovered that, sadly, perfect families are an extremely small percentage. All people live with some level of dysfunction. In my family it was not only my father, but also my brother and sister who suffered from alcoholism. That certainly marred my hope for a perfect family. I never struggled with alcohol, but I did wrestle with other sins that seemed to be handed down generation to generation.
