Wow! Last week we had 20 entries for our Mystery Author contest! Thanks to everyone who entered. The answer was SANDRA ROBBINS! And the winner of Sandra's book, PEDIGREED BLOODLINES, is Natalia. Congratulations, Natalia!

Today I'm going to introduce another Mystery Author. Remember that you must guess the author, leave a comment, and INCLUDE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS. Unfortunately, a few folks didn't leave their contact info, so I couldn't enter them into the drawing. I will draw a winner from all of the correct answers.

Now...for our newest Mystery Author:

Mystery Author – what part of the country do you come from?

I spent the first eighteen years in New England and since then I've lived in the West. Let's just say I've never traveled further west than Utah.

You’ve received quite a few awards and accolades. Tell us about them.
Oddly enough for a fiction writer, my first award came for nonfiction, a story about the time my son was arrested for possession of LSD as a teenager.

A Christian Writers Conference recognized me for perseverance and encouraged me to continue with what felt like an impossible dream.

I once ranked third among new authors in the Heartsong readers poll. My as-yet-unpublished historical suspense story finaled in a contest sponsored by Vintage Romance.

You have two different degrees. What are they?
I earned a Bachelor of Sacred Music from Northeastern Bible College and a Master of Arts in Religious Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

What is the first name of the protagonist in your Heartsong mystery series?
Her name is Cici.

Okay! Put your guessing caps on, and tell me who the Mystery Author is!
