Freebie Day #11 - Guest Author Caroline Fyffe!

Today's guest author is Caroline Fyffe!

As an equine photographer, Caroline has worked throughout the United States and in Germany. Long days in the middle of a horseshow arena have given her plenty of opportunity to dream up stories filled with love, heartbreak, joy, sorrow, triumph, and twisting-turning plots. Her feisty heroines and bold, hot-blooded heroes will charm you as they fall for each other in the darndest ways. Her love for horses and the old West inspired her debut book, Where The Wind Blows, which won Romance Writer's of America's prestigious Golden Heart Award under the title Chasing Jessie. Visit the author's website at www.carolinefyffe.com.

Caroline's debut book hits store shelves July 28, 2009! Read on for a sneak peek:

Two hearts meant to be together;
One secret bound to rip them apart.


Chase Logan liked being a loner, a drifter, free and clear as amountain stream. But one look into Jessie Strong's sky blue eyes and in the span of a heartbeat, he found himself agreeing to be her husband-and a father!

Jessie Strong knew it was all pretend. And only temporary. Just until the adoption went through for three-year-old Sarah. But the longer Chase stayed, the less she could imagine a long, lonely Wyoming winter without him. Times may be tough-supplies short and danger just outside the doorstep-but with the strength of the pioneer spirit and the warm glow of love in their herts, Chase and Jessie are determined to have a true family at last, no matter WHERE THE WIND BLOWS.

Welcome, Caroline!!!

1. What kind of books do you love to read and how do those stories impact your own writing?
As most of you would think, I love reading AND writing historicals, mostly westerns. It’s just my passion. But, years ago, I started a reading binge where I read every—well it felt like it--Native American book I could get my hands on. Fiction and non-fiction. I wish I had retained all that knowledge! LOL That led into my Clan of the Cave Bear days. I read that series and went on looking for other authors who wrote similar stuff. Loved it.

2. What are you working on presently? What about upcoming releases?
Presently I’m finishing up a historical western inspirational (that’s a mouth full). It’s a story of two sisters traveling to a gold mine in the Sierra Nevadas. I grew up in the Placerville area, just minutes from where gold was discovered in Coloma. I worked as a freshman in high school until my senior year in a soda fountain/restaurant, The Sierra Nevada House; in Coloma where we served gold strikes and sluce boxes (huge ice cream creations) It was great fun.

My debut book, WHERE THE WIND BLOWS, will be out possibly by the time this blog is posted. It’s a Lonesome Dove meets Little House on the Prairie story. A friend of mine called today from Okalahoma to let me know it had arrived at B&N there. I checked our area (Lodi, Ca.) and it wasn’t here yet. I’m so excited to actually go to a store and see it among the other novels. That will truly be a dream come true. Dorchester has also purchased my 2007 Golden Heart final manuscript, The McCutcheon’s, which was titled Montana Sky at Dawn at the time, slated for an August 2010 release. Leah says the title will change once again. LOL

3. What’s the best compliment you ever got on your writing or book(s)?
The best compliment I ever received in my writing career was winning the 1999 Golden Heart with my very first manuscript. It was unbelievable. The year before I attended my first RWA conference in Anaheim. Not knowing what to expect I packed something nice for the awards ceremony but when my good friend and roomie saw my outfit she generously offered to lend me one of the two dresses she’d brought. It fit me to a tee and was so beautiful. She gave me some long, drop-down rhinestone earrings to wear and I felt like Cinderella. Then, when I walked inside the ballroom, I was bowled over by the immensity of it. I try not to ever lose that feeling. Then and there I stopped, closed my eyes and asked God to let me be a Golden Heart finalist the next year. Guess what? Wishes do come true. I joked later that I wished I’d asked to let me be a GH finalist AND sell! That took quite a few years longer.

4. What’s your writing schedule like?
I wish I could say I have a concrete writing program.—but that’s not true. When I’m in a good routine I jump out of bed at 4:30, get a cup of coffee, and fire up the computer. My boys are grown and gone so if my hubby doesn’t need me for anything I can write all day. And, I usually do. If I’m at a good spot I can turn out about ten pages.

5. If you could be one character from any book you’re read or written who would it be and why?
Wow, that’s a hard question. I guess it would be Laura Ingalls Wilder. I love that slow, small town feel, loving family and yes, she’s a writer! Perfect. But, there are so many other heroines that I’d love to be also, if I thought long enough, it might be someone different each day.

Caroline has generously offered a copy of WHERE THE WIND BLOWS to one lucky commenter. To be entered into the drawing, simply answer the following question:

Did you watch Little House on the Prairie? Who was your favorite character...or...what was your favorite episode?

Hi! Great interview. Where the Wind Blows sounds interesting :) I'm sorroy to say but we didn't have Little House on the Prairie in Croatia :(

3:15 AM  
Blogger Karen H in NC said...

Great interview and congratulations on your debut book release. I did watch Little House way back when and I guess my favorite character would have to be Papa played by Michael Landon..don't remember his actual character name.

5:48 AM  
Blogger Laney4 said...

Yes indeed, I grew up watching LHOTP. Fave character? Hmmmm.... I guess the mom. I didn't think she had enough air time, as most shows centred around Laura and her dad, Charles Ingalls, and later Mary's blindness. Made sense since Laura wrote the books, but I always liked the mom's character and calm demeanour.

Blogger amy said...

Great interview! Oh man, I really loved Little House on the Prairie. I will still put it on if I notice an episode on TV. Much to the pain of my 3 boys and husband! I loved Mr. Edwards. He was such a goofy guy.

Thanks!

Good morning, Eli, I’m happy about being here and visiting with your friends today. Thank you for having me!! The last few days I’ve been running around setting up a launch party for Where the Wind Blows. It’s all getting so exciting….

6:51 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi--Good morning!

Host, you’re from Croatia? Cool. I went on a pilgrimage back in 1998 to Bosnia/ Herzegovina which, I think, boarders Croatia. The country was VERY beautiful. How wonderful the internet is to connect friends all around the world.

But, ---no Little House? Oh, no.

Thanks for stopping by....

6:53 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi Karen~~ Thanks for leaving me a comment!! It was Michael Landon who played pa on Little House. He was such a cutie. Sad he passed away so young because he was still doing some sort of show, which I watched. I first 'fell in love' whit him when he was hot headed, Little Joe, back on Bonanza. Those were totally fun. The ranch house in my second book, The McCutcheons, is what I imagined when I was writing it....

7:00 AM  
Blogger Emmanuelle said...

great interview !! This is exactly the king of romance I like to read. I used to watch The little house in the prairie. My favorite character was Marie. Why ?? Well I was very young and I thaught she was Beautiful ;-)... that was a good reason at the time !

7:04 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi there, Laney4~~Great to have you here. Mom Ingalls’s name was Caroline, and in the books, spelled like mine. Weird thing was Charles would jump back and forth calling her Caroline or Carolyn. The two are different names but he never seemed like he could remember which one he was supposed to use.

Did anyone else notice that??

7:07 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Karen~~my only excuse is I haven't had my coffee yet!! You knew the acotors name but not his stage name--Charles Ingalls...geezzze...sorry.

7:10 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi Emmanuelle,-- I love your name, it's very romantic. I'm glad to hear you love westerns too!! We've always been a little specialized but seem to be making a BIG comeback, to which I'm very happy!!!

I looked at your blogger account and it says you are from France. What a beautiful country. I had the privilege of visiting it in 2002. I was with my sister-in-law and we both brought our sons along. It was one of the best trips of my life!! I'm happy to have such international guests along with our American guests here today. Very fun!

And, like you, I loved Marie very much. She was always so level headed and kept Laura in line the best she could. She was darling.
And, just wondering, what sightseeing spot, besides Paris, do you recommend?

7:37 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Host, Karen and Laney4, I'll ask you the same question I asked Emmanuelle since we have such wonderful places you all are from. Croatia, North Carolina, Canada! Amy--your account doesn’t say where you’re from but you can play along too, if you want.

What out of the way touristy spot would you recommend to visitors visiting your home spot?

I'm in Northern California and I would tell people not to miss South Lake Tahoe. It really is magical, especially in the summer. Love it there....

Have any of you been there?

7:46 AM  
Anonymous Cate Rowan said...

Hi Caroline! I never noticed that Pa on LHOTP called his wife both Caroline and Carolyn. Weird! (And I can see why you would notice, LOL.) I miss Lake Tahoe!!! You're such a talented writer, and you hung in there for so long until you finally attained your dream. Well, the first of them, anyway. Next, a RITA! :-)

8:29 AM  
Blogger MJFredrick said...

I'm a fan of Laura Ingalls, though I loved the books way more than the series ;)

8:35 AM  
Blogger Maureen said...

I did watch and enjoy that show very much. I liked the whole family but I think Laura was my favorite.

8:46 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Good morning, Cate! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, the name switch was weird. Unless I'm totally crazy...but I don't think so.

Thanks for the nice words on my writing! I appreciate them. The RITA is an unbelievable accomplishment to be dreamed about. I salute all who have attained it!!

Hugs!

Blogger Blodeuedd said...

I loved the series, an I sure watched every ep. laura was my fav back then.

8:50 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi MJ and Maureen...

I think it's hard to beat such a classic. I hear the publishers are making a push back to family stories and small town settings, such as this show.
I think Laura was absolutely a scene stealer--especially when she cried. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

8:54 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Wow, now we have a visitor from Finland! This blog certainly has a worldwide following!!
Welcome, Blodeuedd, thanks for coming by. What tourist spot should we be sure to catch if we visit Finland?? Glad you also enjoyed Little House too!

I used to watch Little House On The Prairie when I was little. I love Laura!

9:48 AM  
Blogger Kayla Westra said...

Hi, Caroline! I'm living Little House on the Prairie, and your invitation to come and visit is wide open! I'm half an hour from Walnut Grove, and my girls have played in Plum Creek and wandered around the dugout site. The museums are open through late October, and open again in May. If anyone else is interested, check out http://www.walnutgrove.org/ for more info. The pageant is great - have been to that several times.

I loved Michael Landon as Charles Ingalls. And as Joe Cartwright, and as any other character he played. Who didn't? :-)

9:50 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi Llehn!

Another vote for Laura...

10:07 AM  
Blogger Laney4 said...

Hi again, Caroline! Thanks for the posting and telling me the mom's name was Caroline! What a coincidence! If I'd thought about it some more, I MIGHT have remembered it. I'm 50 now and have selective memory, ha ha.
As for your question about touristy spots ... hmmm ... well, even though it isn't in Ontario, Canada where I live, I always tell people about visiting West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is the largest mall in the world, but I don't go to shop. I just love their indoor wave pool with tons of water slides for my kids and a tube water slide for me! I could stay there and the wave pool all day long! My family also has skated in their indoor ice rink (where the Edmonton Oilers practise), has ridden on their indoor roller coaster in their amusement park, and has slept in their hotel inside the mall (with themed rooms).
As for a place near my own neck of the woods, people love camping at Sandbanks Provincial Park in Picton, walking around Old Fort Henry in Kingston, marvelling at Canada's Niagara Falls and taking their Maid-of-the-Mist boat ride (plus it's Canada's honeymoon capital and has great hotels), and going to Canada's Wonderland in Toronto for their all-day amusement park.
We have driven through the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia where it is SO beautiful and they have lots of fresh fruits. We have taken the Tunnels of Moose Jaw tours underground in Moose Jaw, Manitoba's downtown area, where bootleggers were known to work. We keep returning to Oshawa, Ontario's McLaughlin Estate Tour where you walk around a mansion and estate that was built in 1917 complete with indoor pool and indoor bowling alley. I could go on and on even more, but I'll "spare" you, ha ha. Thanks again for your inquiry.

Kayla--Hi!

I'm taking you up on that--sometime in 2010. I figure by the time we get to Kentucky you will be snowed in and I won't be able to get up there. LOL
But, on the other hand, your blizzards sound wonderful. I want to experience one.

Big thanks for coming by.

*waving* me me me...!

*ahem*

I watched Little House in the Prairie religiously--even though we were at least two years behind, and the episodes were dubbed (grew up in Mexico, after all).

I loved Laura, because I often felt out of sync with my world and I got the impression she did as well.

10:17 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Laney4--Thanks!!!!

You have given us all much to think about. Such wonderful things to do and see in Canada. I'd absolutely LOVE to do the underground bootlegger's digs. That kind of thing just sends my muse into outer space! Cool. A day (or week) at that mall might be in order too. LOL
Thanks for stopping back and sharing all this.

Hugs,

Blogger Caroline said...

Azteclady--good to see you again! Hi! Thanks for stopping in.

Little House in Spanish!! That would be a trip.

I agree that Laura seemed to be a little at odds with her childhood, but then there was always ma and pa, and Mr. Edwards to help her iron things out. It’s neat you could identify closely with her. It’s the little things that help ‘us’ get through the things we need to weather…..

Have a great day!

No one's voted for Nellie. She was my favorite character. My favorite episode was when she pretended to be paralyzed and Laura got so mad she pushed Nellie down the hill to prove to everyone she could walk.

Classic!

11:39 AM  
Blogger Eva S said...

Thanks for the great interview!
I grew up watching Little House here in Finland too, I loved them all, but Laura was my favorite.

11:52 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

LOL! Nellie!! Well, she was an interesting personality. I wonder if in her real life people would shy away from her. haha Her being so devious and all!

Eli, the Nellie push was a GREAT episode.
I'm a little surprised so many of you were also loyal followers of Little House. I'm not so freaky after all.

12:05 PM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Finland! Welcome, Eva S! I'm just having so much fun seeing where ya'll are from....too cool.
So, Eva, what is a really neat attraction in Finland?
I thought Laura would get the most votes. I didn't expect Nellie to get any. LOL Personally, I always wanted to slap her for all the mean tricks she used to play. But evoking such emotion out of someone proves her stamp of acting greatness!!

Caroline,

Can't wait to read your book! As for my favorite character on LHOTP, I'd have to say it was Manly. LOL. Loved how he interacted with Laura.

12:26 PM  
Blogger Caroline said...

You're right, Kathy! Manley was great. Loved the ep where pa won't let the two get engaged and Manly gets sick and almost dies....snif snif.

Thanks so much for visiting!!

Hi Cheryl,
Thank you for the congrats! I'm still flying.

You and I both suffer from Michael Landonism...he was so sweet, cute and, well, a cowboy. He really did a wonderful job in all his rolls.

I appreciate you stopping by.
Keep smiling!!

And, yes, Diane, the perfect father figure. I agree. I cried so hard on the episode where their baby son died.

So heartbreaking, but true...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Hi Lighthouse Sandy--that is a great name!!

Do you live, or have you ever toured a lighthouse? I did in Maryland last spring. It was great. The light keeper lived there with a wife and small children. It was all so cute but frightening if you were the mother. I'd be a nervous wreck thinking someone was going to fall over the railing....

Oh, now I'm way off subject. Thanks for having my book on your wish list...

~Caroline

Hello! Congratulations on your new release and wonderful interview. I was a HUGE LHOTP fan... probably because it was one of the few shows we watched. ;)

My favorite character was Ma Ingalls, I have to say! :)

Where The Wind Blows is one of my fave story plots. My fave was Laura & my fave episode was when Almanzo finally kissed her.

Thanks, Jenn, on both counts. I met your critique partner in DC. She's a doll!!

Caroline - thank you. My name is originaly hebrew but it's fairly common in europe (italy = Manuella...). I'm happy you enjoyed France. I live 20 km south Paris and visit it from time to time though I admit it's not my favorite place !! (I know I'm weird..). If you ever visit France again, I recommand Brittany or Toulouse which is a gorgeous town. The Alpes are amazing too. One friend from Pittsburgh came to visit a few years ago and we took her to Annecy, a very old town situated in the middle of the mountains with a huge lake... breathtaking !
I myself prefer the US and Dh, the boys and I go there as much as possible. When I'm not actually travelling there I read... cowboys stories of course !!;-)

4:17 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Good morning, Gail,
Thanks for dropping by....

Yup, pa Ingalls is a cutie for sure. Funny, last night after I'd gotten into bed I was looking through the channels and there it was. I don't watch it regularly now but I laughed with all the conversations of yesterday. It was the episode where the bad guy was taking Walnut Grove from the towns folks. I picked up in the middle....

Gail, thanks for the good wishes on the 28th. This is exciting. At least Eli has been through the process before. LOL I’m a nervous wreck!!

Happy Sunday,

PS~Thanks again for the great Kick off post over at NWIB!! That was truly fun!!

7:04 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi Emmanuelle!!

I'm so happy you dropped back by. Thank you for the great information on what towns to visit in France. Nobody knows better than a native about where to truly see the most wonderful parts of a country. I'm going to jot them down in a safe place for future reference.

You see, I'm sure I'll be back in the next few years because my niece, Emily, spent last year (her Junior year in college) in Dijon. I was supposed to make it over for a visit, but ran out of time. Year after next she says she's going back after Graduation; she goes to school in Boston, for a year and teach. Truth is she fell in love with a young, handsome Frenchman—who is coming to Kentucky in a few days to visit her. They will also make a trip out here to California to meet more of the family---hmmm--- I think wedding bells may be ringing sometime soon~~~<3. I think that would be great fun. It’s a kick to listen when she is talking to Nicoli (sp?) on the phone and they are talking in French. It sounds beautiful but we can’t understand a thing. LOL

Where in the US do you visit? I'd be interested to know. I'm happy too that you like reading about cowboys!! LOL Me too.

Thanks for making my Sunday a happy one...

Hugs,

I had so much fun getting to know you better in DC! You are a kick and I so enjoyed hanging with you and Pat (and all her shoes) and Katey! 007's are a fantastic group!

Hi Elizabeth and Caroline *waves*

Caroline, I can't wait to start your book. Still settling back from the trip to D.C. I actually *love* LHOTP and take much ribbing for it, but I think "Sweet Sixteen" is my favorite episode. Wouldn't it be for any romance writer? :)

Much congrats on your release.

10:36 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi there, Laura,

Thanks for joining the LHOTP chat. *waves back*.
I can't believe I'm saying this but I don't think I saw, Sweet Sixteen!! I don't remember it at all. But, it could just be my faulty memory these days. It's truly not as good as it used to be. Such is life.

Thank you so much for buying Where the Wind Blows at the Literacy for Life book signing in DC. That was such a thrill for me. I hope you like it. My son just finished it and it’s been really fun seeing his reaction. LOL

On another note, a sad one, I lost the jpegs from our group pictures before the signing and also at the signing –my very first signing--on Wednesday evening. I'm sick about it.

But, you’re a good friend and I’m happy you dropped by.
See ya!

I loved LHOTP growing up; it was one of the few shows I was allowed to watch.

I liked all of the characters, but my faves were Laura, Charles, and Victor.

11:13 AM  
Blogger Caroline said...

Hi Cathi,

If parents only allowed their children to watch one or two shows, LHOTP was such a great choice. So many good lessons were taught, as in treating people decently, being fair, loving one's family, being kind...I could go on forever. Few shows hit the mark like it did. Compare it to what’s on TV today! I shudder at the thought. The envelope gets pushed farther and farther every year. I hate to say it but most of the shows are totally inappropriate for children and adults.

Okay, I'm stepping down from my soapbox...thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,

It was so fun seeing you at your first Lit Signing in D.C.--congrats! I used to watch LHOTP all the time as a kid. I don't remember the episode names, but I was always intrigued by Nellie Olsen--I didn't *like* her, but she was just so much of an anti-Laura Ingalls character, I was curious about what she'd do or say next :).

With a young french man or two in the family there will always be a good reason to visit !!!
Last year we went to DC, then up to Chicago, then down to Atlanta, then back to DC (through Cherokee). We did it all by car and visited some really neat places... it was just great. My favorite trip so far !! This year's trip was cancelled due to a some trouble with DH health. Now he's fine though so I'm already planning next year's trip (TEXAS !!! just wanna see it !!).

I'm going to miss our morning chats. Your trip to DC and beyond sounds wonderful. I'm glad you are getting to experience America the Beautiful. Guess What? I was born in Texas. So I guess I come by my cowboy stories naturally. LOL Waco, to be exact. In some of your travels be sure to check out the North West coastal states. A lot of beauty there, too.

Congratulations on winning the book. I'm happy Chase and Jessie will be going to France!!



Happy Trails!

A big thank you to, Eli for having me visit. I’ve had a great time chatting with your followers.

Tomorrow evening, at my Kick Off book signing at Barnes & Nobel in Stockton I’m going to pick up MY copy of Stolen Heat! Can’t wait!!


Thank you to all the visitors! It’s been totally fun sharing our love for Little House, a classic like that NEVER goes out of style. My blog www.inthenickeroftime.wordpress.comusually tells where I’ll be blogging next. I’d love to chat with ya’ll again….

Also, check out www.carolinefyffe.com on the 29th of July for the details on my Under A Western Sky Contest! I hope everyone here will enter!! Plus, if you sign up for my news letter you will be eligible at the end of each month for a free book!!
