About the Author

Author of twenty romance novels, Emily Mims combined her writing career with a career in public education until leaving the classroom to write full time.  The mother of two sons and grandmother of three, she and her husband Charles live in central Texas but frequently visit grandchildren in eastern Tennessee and Hawaii.  She plays the piano, organ, dulcimer and ukulele and belongs to two performing bands.  She says, “I love to write romances because I believe in them.  Romance happened to me and it can happen to anyone-if she’ll just let it.”
Why did you write this book?
Jason Donahue is the fourth wounded warrior I have included in my Texas Hill Country series.  Jason and Emily appeared as supporting characters in ‘Daughter of Valor’ and they too had a story I wanted to tell.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary romance-anything from romantic suspense to small-town feelgoods to downright scary paranormals
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s ‘In Death’ series
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I am just starting my Christmas novella for Boroughs Publishing, tentatively titled ‘A Gift of Hope’.  The next installment in the Texas Hill Country series, ‘Never and Always’, should be out very soon.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Wounded but Victorious
            After three agonizing years of surgeries and rehab, U.S. Army veteran Jason Donahue is ready to leave the Iraq War in the past and rejoin society.  Yet, no matter the success he achieves at work, people wince every time they see him.
            Everyone but Emily Riley.  From the first, the beautiful redhead looks past his disfigurement and sees him.  In return, Jason wants to buy her everything she deserves, starting with her dream home and going from there.  Yet Emily has scars of her own, a past she’s not ready to reveal.  Only when they both come clean, when they view each other through the eyes of love and trust, will they know that, when a good man and a good woman give each other their heart, the two will always have more than enough.
