3 Questions Wednesday with Catherine Castle

Happy Wednesday! Today the Inspired Prompt welcomes multi-award-winning author Catherine Castle. We’re so happy you could join us. First question:

Can you describe yourself in three words?

Catherine:  I guess I’d say that I’m curious. I love learning about new things, different places, and I have tons of non-fiction, research books on my shelves. I’m also a loyal person. If you’re my friend, I have your back. And I’m outgoing.

A great combination for any writer. Now about travel…

Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?

Catherine:  My first choice would be the British Isles. I’d love to see England, Scotland, and Ireland. However, since my husband won’t leave the continental U.S. until he’s seen it all (and there’s no way I’d leave him behind), I’d have to buy an RV with the funds and tour the USA. There’s so much history to see here and every place would inspire a story. It’s happened to me already when we’ve been traveling.

What a great idea! Last question:

If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?

Catherine:  Wow, this is a hard one! While I’ve always been into music, I’ve never thought of songs in terms of a life theme. They’ve been entertainment for me or praises to sing to the Lord. The song that’s coming to mind right now—probably because my husband and I recently sang it as a duet in our church and I just wrote a devotion that references the song—is Josh Turner’s “Me and God.” God has been a big part of my life ever since I was a child, and I love the lyrics to “Me and God.” Because with Him there is nothing we can’t do.

Here’s the YouTube video of Josh Turner’s song “Me and God.”

Thanks for hosting me today, Jennifer.

We’re so glad you could stop in! Come back real soon…

Catherine: I’d like to give away a Kindle ebook (gifted through Amazon) of my award-winning sweet, contemporary romance, A Groom for Mama. The book just won the contemporary category in the Raven Awards sponsored by UnCaged Books, so I’m super excited to share it with a new reader.

A Groom For Mama

Beverly Walters is dying, and before she goes she has one wish—to find a groom for her daughter. To get the deed done, Mama enlists the dating service of Jack Somerset, Allison’s former boyfriend.

The last thing corporate-climbing Allison wants is a husband. Furious with Mama’s meddling, and a bit more interested in Jack than she wants to admit, Allison agrees to the scheme as long as Mama promises to search for a cure for her terminal illness.

A cross-country trip from Nevada to Ohio ensues, with a string of disastrous dates along the way, as the trio hunts for treatment and A Groom For Mama.

Where novice Sister Margaret Mary goes, trouble follows. When she barges into a drug deal the local Mexican drug lord captures her. To escape she must depend on undercover DEA agent Jed Bond. Jed’s attitude toward her is exasperating, but when she finds herself inexplicably attracted to him, he becomes more dangerous than the men who have captured them by making her doubt her decision to take her final vows. Escape back to the nunnery is imperative, but life at the convent, if she can still take her final vows, will never be the same.
Nuns shouldn’t look, talk, act, or kiss like Sister Margaret Mary O’Connor—at least that’s what Jed Bond thinks. She hampers his escape plans with her compulsiveness and compassion and in the process makes Jed question his own beliefs. After years of walling up his emotions in an attempt to become the best agent possible, Sister Margaret is crumbling Jed’s defenses and opening his heart. To lure her away from the church would be unforgivable—to lose her unbearable.
