CIR: What gave you the inspiration for this series?
LYN: I never planned it to be a series. Summer Storms just came to me and I grew to love the characters so much that I wanted to keep them alive a bit longer.
CIR: What is the main character like?
LYN: These books are really an ensemble cast, but Lizzie is the glue that holds most of them together, and she was a fun character to write. Professionally, she seems very together, and she gains more respect from her boss and coworkers throughout Summer Storms, but you also get to see some of the cracks underneath in her personal life. Her life hasn’t turned out the way she planned, but she’s learning how to make it work for her and showing others along the way how to overcome their past baggage.
CIR: Who will like (or need) this book? Why?
LYN: I think most of my books fall into the emerging group of New Adult genre, but from a Christian perspective. I have fans from the age of 13-70 though. This series deals with grief, forgiveness of others and of yourself, alcoholism, broken relationships, ministry, and really how faith can be a part of every day life.
CIR: What do you hope your readers will get out of this book?
LYN: I want believers to realize how much God loves us and wants to have relationship with us. We are all flawed and scarred, but the door is open to his forgiveness and salvation if we just open our hearts.
CIR: In honor of the Christmas-themed book in the series, can you share a favorite holiday memory?
LYN: Christmas has always been my favorite time of year; there’s so much excitement and joy in the air. Growing up, we went to my grandparents’ house on Christmas Eve with my aunts, uncles, and cousins. After a big dinner, we’d open our gifts and watch the Christmas specials~Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. One year, when we were heading home, there was a streak across the sky and my grandma told us it was Santa Claus. It was probably a shooting star, but…who knows. Anything is possible at Christmas.
