There's Always Hope

     Hope St. Michaels knew she would never be anyone’s wife, anyone’s mother with her disfigured face so she dedicated herself to teaching the children of others.
     Coyote Wilder knew he would always be an outcast and shunned by many. He grew up fighting and thought his life would probably end in a gunfight.
     Fate brought these two unlikely people together and love swept them both away. Now would either of their prophesies prove true or would fate step in and offer another alternative?

Wild Women Authors is pleased to welcome back Susan Payne and Hope St. Michaels from There's Always Hope, a novella length historical romance released by the Wild Rose Press. First up is Hope.

Where are you from? New York, or there abouts. I was raised in the St. Michaels Foundling Home and my friends urged me to come to Sweetwater and take the position of teacher for the new school.
Tell us a bit about There’s Always Hope. I think the play of words, using my name, was done so others would know that no matter how difficult or fearful something is, there’s always hope. Something to believe in that is bigger than all of us. It’s like Faith and Charity, my two best friends. With those three things anything can be accomplished. Can be over-come. Like my birth-defect. The discoloration covers the right side of my face, yet I no longer think about it. I know it's there, but it doesn’t define me. Having faith and believing in other people’s charity put the mark into perspective.
What did you think the first time you saw Coyote Wilder? That he was dark and sinister and dangerous – but not to me. Only to law-breakers who thought they could prey on others without protection. Wilder became a bounty hunter to help local lawmen keep their towns safe. He’s now the deputy and I know we all feel protected with him around.
What was your second thought? That I liked this man very much although I never thought I would marry him. I was a teacher. There are rules about being married, but it wasn’t just that. I thought with my defect covering half my face, no man would ever want to marry me. Wilder showed me how beauty isn’t skin color or perfection. Beauty is deeper.
Was it love at first sight? No, he frightened me. He was following me around and I finally confronted him. Either he left me alone or I’d get Sheriff Mason to do something about him.
What do you like most about him? Wilder is the most sensitive man you’ll ever find. Something he tries to hide. Something that worked in his favor when hunting outlaws. He ‘reads’ people and it doesn’t take him long before he understands what everyone thinks and wants. Kind of like living with a mind-reader or fortune teller.
How would you describe him? Dark, dangerous, dependable. In a fight he’d be the man you want on your side. He is loyal and ethical. Perhaps that’s what makes him a good lawman for Sweetwater.
How would he describe you? He thinks I’m beautiful even though I tell him he’s prejudiced. He says he can’t believe his good fortune in finding me, in marrying a woman so out of his reach.
What made you choose teaching as a career? I love children and with my disfigurement, I didn’t think I’d ever have any of my own. The nuns were good teachers and I wanted to influence the next generation, as they had. Reading is so important and the world is changing. It’s going to require educated citizens so they can make the right decisions when it comes to voting and making laws.
What is your biggest fear? Of course, I worry about wars and such, but not as much now that I have Wilder. He’s been a consolation merely being nearby.
How do you relax? I read and knit. I like to cook when I have the time. When school isn’t in session. I love to visit with all my friends here in Sweetwater.
Who is your favorite fictional character? I really have too many to pick out just one. I once tried to count how many books I’ve read for entertainment and it was over two-hundred and still counting. I like, Emma, and a few characters from Pride and Prejudice.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received? Miss Lily, a very wise woman told me: 'A person’s value is not found on the outside. It’s not how they look or where they were born or raised. It’s what makes up their core. If that’s rotten, there isn’t any saving them.'

Hope brought along an excerpt for us:

     As soon as Jeremy was off the bottom step, Faith turned to Hope and asked frantically, “Where is he? That man. You’ve got to get him out of here before Jeremy gets back or he’ll shoot him - if I don’t.”
     Hope tried collecting her thoughts and protect Wilder at the same time. “Faith, I don’t know….”
     “None of that, Hope. You’ve had a man in here and you need to send him on his way - now!” said Faith keeping herself from looking behind the diaphanous curtains trying to find Wilder. She knew it had to be Wilder. Who else would compromise a sweet kind girl like Hope? Take advantage of her gratefulness for his saving her life. Faith whipped herself mentally for not remaining with Hope as she first intended. She knew deep down Hope was too vulnerable to be left on her own.
     “Faith, wait, you need to understand. I love him, really love him and I am so lucky he feels the same,” admitted Hope trying to make her friend understand.
     Faith gazed at Hope as if she were a kicked kitten. “Look, men say all kinds of things, darling. It’s in their nature to get what they want. But you don’t need to feel you owe him anything. He does what he does to make money and not for any other reason. We’ll all help you through this but he has to go.”
     “If he goes, I go. I won’t let my husband be sent away from me. I belong with him,” Hope said adamantly, not understanding how angry Faith was at Wilder.
     “Wait…your husband? You married that man?” asked Faith incredulously which was almost more insulting than anything else Faith had said

Hope, we thank you for taking time away from the students—and your new husband—Hope. We'd like to chat with Susan.
What movies or books have had an impact on your career as a writer? All the old- time western movies. I enjoyed watching them as a youngster and continued watching them as they came out on TV: . Bonanza, Gunsmoke, Branded…they caught my attention. I feel at home there – in that time period.
What event in your private life were you able to bring to this story and how do you feel it impacted the novel? I knew of a young girl with a wine-stain birthmark. Her mother dressed her in pretty clothes, ribbons in her hair, and tried to make her daughter appear ‘normal’. But I could see the girl was very self-conscious about the discolored skin. I often think of this girl and hope her life turned out for the best. That she found a man to love her, that her children appreciate who is, that she accepted that the mark did not define her. That people saw her, as well.
Tell us a bit about your publisher: how did you hear about them and what influenced your decision to submit to them? The Wild Rose Press is fantastic to work with. They self-publish as well as contract with authors to publish them.
What book[s] currently rest on your TBR pile? Like most authors, I have a great reading list. Too many to list since I have a wide taste of genres. Historical, of course, but also biographies and auto-biographies, mystery, real-life stories.
Lastly, what's up next and when can we expect to see it on the shelves? The last of the Sweetwater series was released May 6, 2020. The first story is New Banker In Town. An ex-civil war officer comes to Sweetwater and finds his lost love who he thought abandoned him for a rich land-owner. She is fighting her own battles left-over from the war but they do find love. The second story in the book is Happy Endings. As the titles suggests, I tie up loose ends into, what else, but Happy Endings. New loves are found, some old loves reconnected, and the citizens of Sweetwater come together for a bright future.
But there are more in the wings? Yes, a couple of Regency novels. The Persistent Marquess is under contract and A Regency Christmas by the end of the year. Also, a western historical of a female doctor in Texas, Forever Kind of Women.

My books can be found on:
Amazon Book

Tomorrow's Wish for Love

An auto accident destroyed Marion's lifelong dream. Now, John Dalton wants to change her neighborhood. Even though they're on opposing sides, the attraction is strong, and then she discovers the one thing he wants, she can never give him.

Wild Women Authors is chatting with Marion Winter, a local business woman who is also the female protagonist of Tomorrow’s Wish for Love.
Where are you from? A small community of Briar, Georgia, about 30 miles north of Tallahassee.
What did you think the first time you saw John Dalton? That he was good looking. And very fit.
What was your second thought? How could someone that good looking be so untidy with his living quarters.
Did you feel it was love at first sight? Not really. Though there was something about him that was attractive.
What do you like most about him? That he likes kids. That he enjoys working with them.
How would you describe him? Determined. Strong in his own sense of self.
How would he describe you? Probably stubborn. Because I'm fighting the location of his proposed baseball field for town's kids. I'm protecting my father whose house is next door.
What made you choose Maid Marion, a cleaning service, as a career? It wasn't that I chose it but rather it chose me. I couldn't go back to teaching because of the emotional pain after my accident. After moving back home, I needed something to do outside of the house. Something to earn an income. Cleaning houses doesn't require thinking. It's busy work and that's what I needed.
What is your biggest fear? That I'll never be loved for who I am, as I am because I'm damaged goods.
How do you relax? Honestly, I'm not sure I do. I'm always busy doing something.
Who is your favorite fictional character? Alice of Alice in Wonderland. With my accident, I feel like I went down a rabbit hole and that I'll never find my way out.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received? Keep your head down and keep walking. I always saw it as don't get bogged down with a problem. Move ahead, leave it behind, and change the scenery. That has me thinking... I've allowed myself to get bogged down with the baseball field problem. As a way to ignore or leave behind my other problem? The problem I don't really want to deal with? I changed the scenery but the problem came with me because the problem is me.
Now, a few questions for Author Diana Stout:
What movies or books have had an impact on your career as a writer? Growing up, I read a lot of book and then in tenth grade I started reading big books: Gone With the Wind, Hawaii, and Forever Amber are a few that I remember. I loved the descriptions of settings, feeling I was walking beside the characters. Then later, Kathleen Woodiwiss and Rosemary Rogers were the first big romance writers that had me reading everything they wrote. They wrote big books, too. I love learning about history and geography through their stories.
Tell us a bit about your publisher: how did you hear about them and what influenced your decision to submit to them? This book was first published by Avalon Books, a publisher a critique partner friend of mine was writing for. She encouraged me to submit. Today, I'm an indie publisher. Having the rights back, I changed the book's title and the cover, updated the story, corrected all the errors that the publisher had failed to do, and have republished it through my own company Sharpened Pencils Productions LLC.
What book[s] currently rest on your TBR pile? Because my pile is so large, here are just three of many romances I want to read: The Rogue by Katharine Ashe, The Secret Ingredient for a Happy Marriage by Shirley Jump, and the Brides on the Run series by Jami Albright.
Lastly, what's up next and when can we expect to see it on the shelves? Much hasn't changed since my last interview from April. I'm still working on the Laurel Ridge novella series of seven romance stories. After that project is finished, I'd like to continue work on a historical drama that's based on a true event from the mid-1800s. I did the research years ago where I gathered original census records, court records, transcripts, newspaper clippings, and more. Additionally, I'm working on a non-fiction reference book for writers.


Surprised, Marion looked up. Shock ran through her, her skin turned cold with fear, and the air left her lungs. The wall she had run into was a man. About six-three to her five-six. A strand of dark hair lay curled on his forehead. Equally dark brows hooded eyes the color of milk chocolate, and his gaze bore into her. His impressive wide shoulders make the narrow three-foot wide hall even smaller.
"Who in blue blazes are you?" he asked. His voice rumbled loudly against the hall walls.
"Maid Marion," she said.
"Yeah, right. And I'm Robin Hood."
"No, really, I'm Maid Marion," she repeated. "Marion Winter actually." She saw nothing but puzzlement in his eyes. "Maid Marion is the name of my business. John Dalton?" He nodded. "You hired me to clean your house."
"I did no such thing. How did you get in here?"
"You left your keys with my father."
"I've never met your father."
"Yes, you did, Mr. Dalton. Two nights ago."
"And I'm telling you, I didn't."
Marion bit her lip. Nothing made sense. Remembering the contract, she moved forward, intending to go to the small table near the entrance, but he blocked her way.
"Where are you going?"
"To get the contract you signed."
For a long moment he studied her. Without a word, he turned sideways. Marion swung the basket in front of her in an attempt to bring the bulky item in line with her body and in the process, her knuckles rubbed against the front of his powder blue chambray shirt. She felt his stomach muscles contract and heard his short inhalation of air. Heat shot from her knuckles to her whole hand and up her arm.
She darted a quick look at him. He still stared at her, the furrow between his brows deeper than before. She pressed forward determined to get past him without further incident.
Reaching the small oak table near the door, she set the basket on the floor and reached for the canvas bag that acted as her traveling office wherever she went. In it, she carried the records of her clients and other pertinent information she needed from day-to-day. Quickly, she found what she was looking for and extracted two sheets of stapled paper.
She believed in brevity and organization, and her contracts reflected her philosophy. Turning, she found John standing behind her. She held out the papers and he took them.
She watched as he scanned through the material, turning to the second page. His gaze dropped to the bottom of the page to the signature line. His mouth a straight line, he glanced at her, then spun around.
In half a dozen steps, he was at the drafting table. She followed. He reached for a pen and scribbled something at the bottom of the page, dropped the pen, straightened, and turned back to her.
With the papers back in her possession she looked at what he had written. His name was scribbled, almost unreadable, below the first signature.
"They're not the same," she said.

Jeremy's Home

Wild Women Authors welcomes back Susan Payne and  Book 3 in her Sweetwater Series, Jeremy's Home. With her is the title character, Jeremy, third in line of the four Macgregor men. He'll go first.

Where were you born? On the Macgregor Ranch just outside of Sweetwater, Kansas.
Tell us a bit about the book: I have three brothers and we all took time working the ranch before we went off to college. My oldest brother, Mac, kept the ranch going while the rest of us got to do what we wanted. I’m back now to repay him and the town for all they did for me.
What did you think the first time you saw Faith St. Michaels? Hm-m-m, that’s a hard one. I had just broken off an engagement so wasn’t expecting to want another relationship so soon. But Faith was different. I knew right away we were going to be more to one another than friends.
What was your second thought? That I had finally found the woman to be my wife.
Did you feel it was love at first sight? Love? Not sure about that but I was certainly proprietary. Nearly punched out my youngest brother more than once, thinking he’d been taking liberties.
What do you like most about Faith? I think her innocence. Even after being physically attacked, she was more worried about getting her friend, Charity, settled. She helped my brother, Jessie, set up his newspaper while going through some pretty rough things. She always puts others before herself.
How would you describe her? Pretty as a peach – which is my favorite color on her. But she truly is beautiful – inside and out. I can’t tell you enough times how sweet and giving she is after surviving a difficult life.
How would she describe you? Too full of myself…but that didn’t stop her from helping me with my building designs for the school. For believing in my dreams.
What made you choose architecture for a career? I didn’t know until I got into university and was drawn to buildings. They were calling them skyscrapers like the ship’s masts and were said to be the future of cities. I wanted to be part of that bigness. I wasn’t sure how, but I wanted to build something from nothing. Build structures that would mean something to a lot of people. Not monuments, but buildings people lived in or worked in. Buildings to last hundreds of years.
What is your biggest fear? After my marriage, it has to be something happening to Faith. To our children when they come. There are so many dangers out there that I never considered before. Now, I see danger everywhere. Faith says I need to trust, to believe in a higher power. I trust her so I guess I should trust in what she says, too.
How do you relax? I draw buildings. I know that sounds like what I do for work, but putting lines down on paper also relaxes me. Most will never get built, but I enjoy figuring out the how and use of a structure. Faith and I do them together sometimes, our second favorite past time, you could say.
Who is your favorite fictional character? Captain Nemo, for sure. His mind went all over the place. I mean, underwater ship? What I would give to build something like that.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received? Trust in yourself. If you don’t trust yourself then you’re never going to trust in anyone. Faith, she taught me trust.
Jeremy, thanks for taking time away from drawing buildings to speak with us. Now we'd like to chat with Susan.

What movies or books have had an impact on your career as a writer? I love to read and began reading early. I would study in depth certain things or people. I read for weeks about President Lincoln and did the same with Napoleon. Then studied Josephine Bonaparte and Mary Todd. I love reading old diaries and journals of everyday people, especially women who often kept them from childhood.
What event in your private life were you able to bring to this story and how do you feel it impacted the novel? Sexual abuse has always been part of a woman’s life, something she was warned about even if not intentionally. This story handled Faith’s attack as I wished all such attacks would be handled. Without blame to the one attacked. Without blame to the possible infant conceived from that attack. With love and understanding by the people around the victim.
Tell us a bit about your publisher. The Wild Rose Press has been wonderful to work with. Can’t give them higher praise for the ease I have been able to get my books published. This is the third book in the Sweetwater series. The fourth, and last, book is being worked on and was released on May 6, 2020.
What book[s] currently rest on your TBR pile? It keeps growing, I’m afraid. My friends are very prolific writers and simply trying to keep up with them is difficult. Gina Conkle, Rosanne Bitner, Maris Soule, Lucy Kubash, and so many others.
Lastly, what's up next and when can we expect to see it on the shelves? I have the final two stories of Sweetwater – New Banker In Town and Happy Endings. The first brings a southern civil war veteran into town who finds the woman he thought would wait for him but didn’t. He isn’t sure if the heat he feels for her is due to anger for abandoning him or passion because he still loves her. The Happy Endings is tying-up relationships of people we’ve met along the way. New babies, new buildings, new people. All finding their way to Sweetwater and the citizens who make it what it is.
We hear there may be more novels being offered by you and Wild Rose Press? Yes, the Sweetwater series is written in a style used by many of the writers of other genres. These next novels are a little different. The first is a Regency, The Persistent Marquess. A western historical, Forever Kind of Woman, about a female doctor in the Texas town of Forever. And possibly a Regency Christmas story by the end of this year.
We are pleased to include an excerpt from Jeremy's Home:
     Jeremy was drawing out some rough plans on one of the brown papered packages.
     Faith was watching his long fingers quickly make sense of the lines and then offered a suggestion. “If you make the building a couple of steps higher, wouldn’t there be enough room in the basement to have a civic center, you know for town meetings and voting and such. It could have half windows at ground level which would appear at normal level from the room side.”
     Jeremy, his tongue touching his lower lip, drew in the higher stairs saying, “That would cover two birds with one stone, saving money and giving the town something, it needs. There will need to be a beam and supports but otherwise a fairly open space.”
     “And then divide the upper room in half this way, placing two doors side by side but with enough space between them,” Faith suggested taking the pencil from his hand drawing what she was thinking of for the entrance to the building at the top of the steps.
     “And we can either put in the central dividing wall or leave it until it’s needed,” Jeremy finished for her.
     “But you need to plan on that. A central chimney will work for both the rear living quarters and the stove to heat the schoolroom. I think a second should go on this side, too, so that when its divided, there will be a heat source on both sides.” She added the little square to reflect the chimney.
     “The basement can be heated by a larger stove sharing this chimney.” And more lines were added to the brown paper.
     “Oh, and there could be either a cellar door or a trap door of some sort so the fire wood or coal can be stored in the back area under the house portion of the building. The rear of the building could be set up with a garden and all the privies going on this side, closer to the front doors of both upstairs rooms. You’ll need a cloak room that can be used for the students during the day and activities in the civic room in the evening with a set of stairs going down to the lower room.” Again, she added the lines as she spoke.
     “I think we have a good plan, Faith. I might hire you for advice when I get stuck,” Jeremy said with admiration.

Lord of Druemarwin

In a world of lies and betrayal, can they trust each other?

Lady Raell can fight, ride, and argue politics as well as her brothers. Only being mistress of her father's household keeps her in skirts. In Naed, the new Lord of Druemarwin, she has found devotion, a kindred spirit, and a marriage promise. But when a forgotten and unwanted betrothal comes to light, she has no choice but to run.
Amidst sweeping revolution, Naed must rally his people, fend off assassination attempts, and fight against claims he's a traitor. Then he discovers everything about his lineage and family is a lie. And his beloved belongs to another.
With lives and a kingdom at stake, Raell and Naed must find a way to protect the innocent and save their love.
Wild Women Authors is pleased to feature Lord of Druemarwin, a fantasy romance, writted by Helen C. Johannes and released by the Wild Rose Press. First up is heroine, Lady Raell of Tylus
Where are you from? Western Tolemak, my father has a holding there
Tell us a bit about Lord of Druemarwin. We are at war to restore the Kingdom and unite the three lands. Since the Lost Crown was found, all alliances have been upended, and only personal bonds of trust have made allies of former enemies. My beloved will bring his people to our side—if he can overcome their long-standing neutrality and fend off assassins. Oh, these are dangerous times among both his people and mine, and no one knows whom to trust.
What did you think the first time you saw Lord Naed? My father sent me to tend to his wound and settle him with food and clean clothing. I’d been told to look for a D’nalian with a bit of copper in his hair. ‘Tis unusual, you see, hair so fiery, so I was curious but not prepared to in any way like him, however much he’d done to save the folk. Among my people D’nalians are not known or respected for their warrior skills. But when he turned, all soot-covered and blood-streaked, my heart pinged for all the misery I saw in those rare green eyes.
What was your second thought? Oh. My. I saw his heart there in that moment, how he cared so deeply for all those he thought he’d failed, how alone he was among strangers to whom he’d given his all, when in truth he was to be our rallying voice.
Was love at first sight? Aye, indeed.
What do you like most about Naed? His courage, honor, loyalty, and how he treats me always as a lady even while we steal away for oh-so-delicious kisses.
How would you describe him? Not tall, but strong, and ever so handsome with those green eyes and that fiery hair.
How would Naed describe you? He thinks me beautiful, and I make him smile, a rare feat for all the misery he’s carried.
What made you choose the role of royalty? ‘Twas no choice to be born a lady, nor to be born last and the only girl, or to lose a mother so early, but my father indulged me when I wished to learn swordplay alongside my brothers. They, demons all, ensured I paid with bruises for each lesson.
What is your biggest fear? That Naed will reject me when he learns of my warrior skills. His womenfolk do not go about armed.
How do you relax? If we were not at war, mayhap hearing a bit of music or a tale of heroes would serve, but I have time only for practicing swordplay with my brother Toth as I take delight in the rare times I catch him unaware.
Who is your favorite fictional character? In the history of the Last Kingdom, which is nigh as much fiction as history, Prince Tolem is my favorite. His was the right of succession and our people follow him as he seeks to regain the Lost Crown.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received? My father’s first lesson of swordplay: “Use whatever’s to hand or to foot.”

Lady Raell, we thank you for taking time away from your duties to spend time with us. You've given us added insight into the fascinating novel. Now we'd like to chat with Helen.
What movies or books have had an impact on your career as a writer? Too many to count. I studied English and German literature, so all the grand tales of knights and fairy tales, plus Shakespeare, Tolkien, Rick Riordan, and all things mystery. Disney movies, The Princess Bride, Shrek, Avatar, The Lord of the Rings, Guardians of the Galaxy, Downton Abbey, Pride and Prejudice—the Colin Firth version—and the Leverage TV series—all things with wit and heart and a band of intrepid if unlikely friends.
What event in your private life were you able to bring to this story and how do you feel it impacted the novel? I’m a military brat, so I know what it’s like to be uprooted and plopped down into an entirely different geography and culture as Lady Raell is when she dashes off to join her beloved in Druemarwin. She’s the Princess and the Pea in this situation, having to prove to his people that she’s worthy of him and them, just as I had to constantly find a way to fit in each new environment.
Tell us a bit about your publisher: how did you hear about them and what influenced your decision to submit to them? The Wild Rose Press presented at a conference I attended, and I took home materials. I was impressed with what they offered for my niche, fantasy romance, so I submitted. I now have three books with TWRP.
What book[s] currently rest on your TBR pile? Too many to count, both in print and on my Kindle, mostly romantic suspense of any kind. I just finished A MURDEROUS RELATION by Deanna Raybourn and THE OUTLAW’S HEART by my very good friend Amy Sandas.
Lastly, what's up next and when can we expect to see it on the shelves? I hope to self-publish a children’s fantasy soon. Otherwise, I’m working on a novella in the Crown of Tolem series.
Helen brought an excerpt from Lord of Druemarwin:
Raell, now is not the time—”
Aye, it wasn’t. They stood in torchlight on an open parapet while assassins stalked them, but this might be her only chance to reach him across that precipice he’d thrown up between them, to secure the future they were meant to share.
Does my honor mean naught? When weighed with D’nalian honor, is mine lesser because ‘tis a woman’s honor? Or because ‘tis a Tolemak’s honor? Be honest and tell me that.”
The world had gone silent; Raell could hear nothing over the rush of blood in her ears, the terrible heavy beats of her heart while she waited, dizzy with fear, breathless with longing, for the man she loved to respond with a word, a look, even a blink. Even a shift of his gaze she’d take as a sign he’d at least heard, mayhap begun to consider—
Yes, be honest, Lord Naed,” said a voice she’d heard but once, a voice that raised all the fine hairs on her body and made her innards contract into a cold, tight knot. “Tell us both how much honor means to a bastard who’s betrayed his countrymen and his blood.”
A bit about our feature author:
Helen C. Johannes writes award-winning fantasy romance inspired by the fairy tales she grew up reading and the amazing historical places she’s visited in England, Ireland, Scotland and Germany. She writes tales of adventure and romance in fully realized worlds sprung from pure imagination and a lifelong interest in history, culture, and literature. Warriors on horseback, women who refuse to sit idly at home, and passion that cannot be denied or outrun—that’s what readers will find in her books.
