The book’s genre is romance fiction. It is clean and wholesome and will appeal Christians or anyone that does not want erotica in their books. The book is certainly family friendly.
Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?
The story involves an Amish woman who believes her husband may love her twin sister. She is struggling with whether to admit to her husband that he first met her sister and may, in fact, be in love with her twin.
Tell us the story behind story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?
I’ve always been drawn to anything involving twins since I have a twin sister. While the book is a short read, it took a few weeks to write because I was unsure where the story was headed. A lesson I’ve learned is to start with an outline to save time, that way, I will know ahead of time the direction of the story.
Is there a part of you in any of the characters?
No. There is no part of me in the story, other than my infatuation with twins.
Do you have more books planned?
Yes. I want to write more Amish related books or books involving sweet, clean and wholesome romance. I want to also write fictions involving westerns and thrillers.
Do you have a favorite book that inspires you?
Well, I enjoy reading sweet romances and mysteries. There are so many authors in the sweet romance category that it is difficult to mention just one, however, I enjoyed reading Chasing Amanda by Melissa Foster and Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan, both mysteries, I believe.
When did you decide to become a writer?
I’ve wanted to write as long as I remember. I was an avid reader when I was a teenager and found it difficult to put a book down once I began reading it. During those early years, I would think, I could write a book, however, I’ve learned that it is a process and not as simple as I first thought.
How do you find the time to write?
I am retired so I can devote as much time as needed to writing. However, as a retiree I am still very busy with life and must commit time to writing.
How can readers find you online?
I presently do not have Facebook or twitter accounts, however, readers may find me on Amazon under the author name of Brianna Lantz. I may also be reached at briannalantzbooks (at) yahoo (dot) com
Excerpt from Amish: Always Loved
In the beginning, she had thought that the lack of intimacy in their marriage was due to Aaron’s reserved nature and the fact that their courtship had been short. She had convinced herself that with time, as they got to know each other better, he would become more relaxed and playful with her. However, as the months wore on, she realized that nothing was going to change and that he seemed genuinely surprised when she brought up her concerns.
“But I provide you with everything you need! What more could you possibly want?” he said, exasperated at Jennifer’s sobbing.
