This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About the Author

Mary found her niche in the contemporary western romance genre. She’s the author of eight western romance novels, with more on the horizon. She dabbles in the paranormal romance genre and has written two time-travel romance books, which are now out of print.
She lives in the Great Lake Basin area in the U.S.A., and has two sons. Her career was in education working with children with learning disabilities at the elementary and middle school levels. She’s taught creative writing for a college leisure program.
Besides writing, Mary enjoys photography, reading, going to the opera and dinner with friends, and traveling. Her dream came true when she retired and became a full-time writer.

Interview with Mary J. McCoy-Dressel 

Why did you write this book? 
I wrote this spin off series because it takes place in the same small town where the Carlson cowboys from the Double Dutch Ranch Series live. The new series was created because it takes us off the Double Dutch Ranch. This series will introduce friends and acquaintances of the Carlson family and new characters who live in Canyon Junction.
What is your favorite genre to read?
My favorite genre to read is western romance. I love cowboys, bull riders, and the whole western scene. During the Christmas season, I like to read holiday romance novels.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’ll say the same thing I said in a previous post on Romance Lives Forever. Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. LOL, I know he isn’t a cowboy. *grin* It isn’t easy to choose only one favorite character.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on the second book in Canyon Junction: Hearts in Love Series and finishing up revisions on the fifth book in the Double Dutch Ranch Series. You’ll see these two books in 2017.
Please tell us about your latest book.
A Double Dutch Ranch Series spin off novel
Rancher Jake Lawton is coming to terms with his wife’s infidelity, but he doesn’t expect to become a single dad overnight. He discovers a malicious act by his wife, which could affect both he and his son’s lives. By chance, he runs into his high school sweetheart, never expecting the same old yearnings to return with one “How are ya?” embrace. Has their unanticipated meeting arrived at the perfect time, or has years apart put an end to what should’ve been years ago?
Beth Marconi arrives home to help care for her ailing father. In town, she inadvertently runs into her first love—the cowboy she nearly married after graduation. Sparks ignite before they say hello, but how do they start over when life has left them so bruised? When her ex comes to town, she’s forced to explain the secret surrounding her marriage. Is Jake the kind of man who will understand, or will he revert to the hell-raiser he had become when Beth left thirteen years ago?
Filled with both anguish and hope at Christmastime, a grieving little boy and two lonely hearts pursue a second chance. Jake and Beth seek to work with what they have today instead of living in yesterday’s memories. Forever love and second chances are possible. Right?
