Happy Wednesday! Today the Inspired Prompt welcomes inspirational romance author, Tanya Eavenson. We’re so happy you could join us. First question:
Who is your favorite author?
Tanya: I’m not sure I have a favorite … although I can list a few authors I read often. Let’s see, Karen Witemeyer, Robin Hatcher, Laura Frantz, and Elizabeth Camden. However, reading, for me, started with Lori Wick’s series, The English Garden. I love the biblical aspects of her stories and how the characters feel like family. After reading the series, I knew the Lord was calling me to write. What an impact she has had on my life–God using her writing to take this non-writer to published author.
Wonderful authors! We will keep a lookout for Lori’s books. Next question…
If you could write about anyone or anything fiction/nonfiction who or what would you write about?
Tanya: If I had to write about anyone or anything, I’m not sure I would change from what I’m doing now. I love watching my characters come to life on the page and putting them in situations where they need to cling to the Lord, just like us. It’s where fiction and non-fiction collide, with the realization that we all need a Savior. When my characters point to Jesus, and a reader needs to hear those words at that moment, it’s all the more reason to continue the journey the Lord has set before me.
Great answer. 🙂 Last question:
If you could spend time with a character from your book or another book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?
Tanya: Ooh, I’d enjoy spending time with Trent, the hero from my new release, The RESCUE, and his cowhands, Matthew, Blake, and Pete. They can poke fun at each other but are extremely loyal and willing to risk it all to protect one another, and those they love.
What would I be doing? Hanging out at the ranch, of course! 😊
Sounds like a fun and rewarding day. Thanks so much for dropping by!

Sometimes the path to freedom is found in an unexpected future.
Upon the death of her mother, Rosalind Standford’s life shatters, the pieces scattering to the wind when she is forced into a betrothal to a cunning banker. But when a telegram arrives announcing the man who captured her heart is on a train to Boston, Rosalind must hide her true feelings before the thin cord of her existence unravels the deadly secrets she keeps.
Cowboy Trent Easton returns to his roots in Boston society to find his childhood friend, the love of his heart. Instead, he finds a broken woman engaged to a man close to her father’s age. Though she once rejected him, when Trent learns she’s in danger, he determines to do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even taking her to the altar in the black of night. But will his name and the remote wilds of his Texas ranch be enough to protect her? Or will freedom cost them their lives?
