Hi Darlene! Welcome back to the blog!

Darlene: Tough one. Apples. I have one every day. However, have you had a sumo orange? SO good!

Carrie: ooo i haven’t even heard of those. I’ll have to tell my husband! (i’m allergic to oranges)

Darlene: Winter! What can I say…I’m strange, but I love snow. There’s nothing more beautiful than a fresh blanket of snow.

Carrie: we can be strange together then, because I feel the same way 🙂

Darlene: Coffee all the way. I’m a fan of flavored coffees. That way I don’t need to add sugar. 😉

Carrie: haha! makes sense 😉

Darlene: Definitely over. Easier to grab. haha

Carrie: LOL

Q: Which books are “on your nightstand”?

Darlene: One-year chronological study Bible (NLT), Atomic Habits by James Clear, Detecting Secrets by Sami A. Abrams

Carrie: excellent choices! I am also reading the Bible chronologically this year but using my NLT study Bible which has all my personal notes already 🙂

Q: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever Googled while researching a book?

Darlene: Why spitting when buried in an avalanche can save your life. Really!

Carrie: wait… what?!? LOL

Q: What surprised you about Alaskan Avalanche Escape or your characters as you wrote their story?

Darlene: My favorite character in this book is not the hero or heroine or even Hercules the avalanche search and rescue dog, but Bertie—the mountain man. I loved writing him in and hope to tell his story one day.

Carrie: he sounds like my kind of supporting character 🙂

Q: Some authors like to hide little things in their stories. Is there anything you have hidden in Alaskan Avalanche Escape?

Darlene: Those who know me, know I love plaid, so I like to “hide” plaid in all my books. Somewhere. 😉

Carrie: haha love it!

Q: What do you most want readers to take away from Alaskan Avalanche Escape?

Darlene: That even in the times we feel God doesn’t hear our prayers, He’s listening. We only need to be still and wait for His perfect answer.

Carrie: amen ♥

Thank you so much for taking time to talk with me! 🙂 Before we say goodbye for today, tell us what‘s coming up next for you.
