Hello, reader friends! Join me in welcoming author friend Mindy Obenhaus! She is visiting us today as part of a JustRead blog tour celebrating her latest release, Reunited in the Rockies! I’m delighted to have Mindy here answering a few quick questions and sharing a giveaway opportunity for y’all!
about the author
It took Mindy Obenhaus forty years to figure out what she wanted to do when she grew up, but once God called her to write, she never looked back.
A three-time Carol Award finalist, Mindy is passionate about touching readers with Biblical truths in an entertaining, and sometimes adventurous, manner.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys cooking and spending time with her grandchildren at her Texas ranch.
What is your favorite activity or hobby not related to books?
M: I love to cook/bake. Of course, I also enjoy eating the things I make and that can be problematic.
B: I hear ya! I have the same issue!
Share your inspiration behind Reunited in the Rockies.
M: As I thought about the five brothers in my Rocky Mountain Heroes series, I knew that one of them had to have a lost love. So why not bring him face-to-face with that woman who still lingered in his mind? Except, what if she was pregnant with another man’s child? And so it began.
B: Oh, ouch! You’re not making it easy for Jude!
M: A Rancher to Remember by Patricia Davids.
B: I’ve not read any of Patricia’s books yet, I’ll have to remedy that! I’m loving this cover!
What is your reading style?
M: I prefer to read on my phone because it’s always with me, though, lately, I’ve read a few print books that I picked up at a recent conference.
B: Sometimes it’s all about accessibility.
What is your next release and what are you working on now?
M: Book five in my Rocky Mountain Heroes series, Her Rocky Mountain Hope, will be out in February and I’m currently working on the first book in a new series set in Texas.
B: Yay! Go, Mindy!
What’s your writing style?
M: I’m a pantser who has been forced to plot, so I’m more of a plotser. I plot, but if inspiration hits, I’ll sometimes write entire chapters on my plotting chart.
B: Hey, whatever works! Thanks for hanging out with us, Mindy!
