Interview and giveaway - STOLEN IDENTITY by Lisa Harris

Today I have an interview with Love Inspired author Lisa Harris about her new release, STOLEN IDENTITY!

Lisa’s bio:

I’m a wife, mom,  teacher, author, dreamer, photographer, but most importantly a follower of Christ Jesus.

I currently live with my husband, Scott, and two of our children near the Indian Ocean in Mozambique as church-planting missionaries, while our oldest is loving his second year at a missionary boarding school.

As a homeschooling mom, life is never dull, but I see my writing as an extension of my ministry which also includes running a non-profit organization.

The ECHO Project works in southern Africa promoting Education, Compassion, Health, and Opportunity and is a way for us to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.” (Proverbs 31:8)

When I’m not working l love hanging out with my family at the beach,  playing games, cooking different ethnic dishes, and heading into the African bush on safari.  

And now, here’s me and Lisa!

1) What inspired you to write the storyline/characters of STOLEN IDENTITY?

I had received a number of scam letters in my inbox and started researching how this worked. This led me to write Final Deposit for LIS several years ago, but I knew I wanted to delve into this topic again. Identity theft is on the rise with millions of people affected each year and criminals are making billions. I hope that in reading this story, people will be reminded that when life spins out of control, remind yourself that your identity isn’t tied to the securities of this world. Hold instead to the hope found in our Heavenly Father.   

In regards to identity theft, people need to be careful. Here are some practical ideas to avoid being a victim of identity theft from the US Department of Justice. (http://www.justice.gov/criminal/fraud/websites/idtheft.html)
  

2) What's your heroine's favorite dessert and why?

Danielle has a young daughter and works full time, so everything she does, including cooking, needs to be fun and simple. So she loves desserts like jello with fruit and whipped cream and home made chocolate cookies.

3) Fill in the blanks:

My hero, Jason Ryan, has a real problem with needing to be in control of the situation but in the course of the story, he learns to rely on God.

4) What was the funnest part about writing STOLEN IDENTITY?

I love writing action scenes because I see everything as a movie in my head. While tough, I always find it fun to break those scenes down and have them come alive.

Lisa’s also giving away a copy of her book, STOLEN IDENTITY.

Who would want her life?

Danielle Corbett doesn't understand why someone would want to steal her identity. A single mother running a small business—nothing special, right? But after discovering a dead body on the Oregon coastline, she's attacked by a dangerous hacker who will stop at nothing to frame her. Only her former fiancé, Jason Ryan, is willing to help. Years ago she broke his heart, but he can't walk away from a woman in need. He'll do anything to protect her from their unseen adversary. But is there enough time to work together and untangle this twisted web of fraud and deception?

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group. If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group . I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me.

Year of the Dog serial novel

About Year of the Dog : A month or two ago, I remembered an old manuscript I had completed but which hadn’t sold. It was a contemporary romance meant for Zondervan, titled Year of the Dog . The book had gone into the pipeline and I even got another title ( Bad Dog ) and a cover for it, but eventually my editor at the time decided she didn’t want to publish it, for various reasons. She instead requested a romantic suspense, and so I cannibalized some of the characters from Year of the Dog and thrust them into the next book I wrote, which was Protection for Hire . Honestly, I didn’t take a lot from Year of the Dog to put in Protection for Hire , aside from character names and a few relationship ties. I was originally thinking I’d post Year of the Dog as-is on my blog as a free read, but then it occurred to me that I could revamp it into a romantic suspense and change the setting to Hawaii. It would work out perfectly as (yet another) prequel to the Warubozu series and introduce
