Welcome Lizzi Tremayne, author of Hills of Gold Unchanging, a new Romantic Suspense novel.

About Lizzi Tremayne

Lizzi grew up riding wild in the Santa Cruz Mountain redwoods, became an equine veterinarian at UC Davis and practiced in the California Pony Express and Gold Country before emigrating to New Zealand. When she's not writing historical romantic suspense, veterinary nonfiction and fiction (pending), Lizzi practices equine medicine, teaches, farms, rides and drives horses, swings rapiers and shoots bows in medieval garb.
With her first novel, Lizzi was awarded: Finalist 2013 RWNZ Great Beginnings, Winner 2014 RWNZ Pacific Hearts Award, Winner 2015 RWNZ Koru Award for Best First Novel plus third in Koru Long Novel section, and finalist in the 2015 Best Indie Book Award.
Why did you write this book?
Actually, I hadn't intended to write it at all! I'd completed A Long Trail Rolling, the first book in The Long Trails Series, and was nearly finished writing A Sea of Green Unchanging, then the second book in the series, during NaNoWriMo when two of my beta readers told me there was another story to be written between the end of Book One and its epilogue.
"No, there isn't," I said, with uncertainty.
"Oh, yes, there is," they both said.
"Okay," I finally agreed, thinking I'd simply write a novella and get it out of the way…and them off my back.
Kate and Matt, thank you. You were right and I was wrong. The Hills of Gold Unchanging needed to be written, and so this short, stopgap novel became the 170,000 words saga it is now.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical Romantic Suspense. I was hooked on the genre early on when I read my first Mary Stewart novel, Airs Above the Ground.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That would have to be Vanessa March, the heroine in Airs Above the Ground. She is a classy, feisty veterinarian with real heart. I seem to see her in most of my heroines!
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I am finally getting to finish A Sea of Green Unfolding! In the story, tragedy strikes in Aleksandra and Xavier's newly-found paradise on their California Rancho de las Pulgas. Von Tempsky invites them on a journey to a new life in peaceful New Zealand, but change is in the wind. When they reach Aotearoa, they disembark into a turbulent wilderness—where the wars between the European settlers and the local Māori have only just begun. It will be released 1 May 2017 and is available for preorder on the regular sites.
Please tell us about your latest book.
In this sequel to A Long Trail Rolling, Aleksandra and Xavier's saga continues over the Utah Pony Express Trail, through the mining camps of 1860's Nevada and California, the Sacramento floods and Old San Fran to Xavier's family hacienda, the Californio Rancho de las Pulgas. As the Civil War rages, secessionists menace California. Embroiled in the Confederates' fight to drag the new state from the Union and make it their own, can Aleks and Xavier survive? The secessionists mean business. No one will stand in their way—and live.
