Ten Quickies with Author D'Ann Lindun

Today it's our pleasure to welcome author, D'Ann Lindun to Fox Tales. She's been kind enough to answer our ten quickies questions so we can get to know a little bit about her. We're also featuring two of her latest releases, A Cowboy to Keep and Sunny Days Ahead. So let's get moving.

BUY IT HERE
A COWBOY TO KEEP
When Laney Ellis’ husband is killed by a bull, she is left alone to run their small cattle ranch and raise their son, Justin, on her own. One thing she is determined her son will never do is ride rodeo bulls. But that is the dream Justin holds dearest—to be exactly like his dad, the onetime Colorado State High School Rodeo Champion.

After his rodeo career peaks and begins to slide, Cody Utah opens a bull riding school. Although attracted to his next door neighbor, he steers clear. Cody has heard rumors Laney trapped her husband into marriage by getting pregnant in high school. The last thing Cody wants is children. His mother was a drunk, and he doesn’t know who his father is.

A bull's hooves turned Laney’s world to dust; bull riding gave Cody a life worth living—can they find common ground?


Doesn't this story sound like a great read? If you enjoy a cowboy read, you should check these out. Before we get to the next one, here's our Ten Quickies from D'Ann.

SUNNY DAYS AHEAD
 
Sunny Jamieson craves a normal family so much she has gotten pregnant by the wrong man—twice. Neither was the man she thought he was, and she is alone and about to give birth in an ice storm.

Garrett Pike wants nothing more than to have a boy of his own to follow in his footsteps. When he returns home from the rodeo circuit and finds his wife in bed with a ranch hand, he needs to distance himself from his angry memories and accepts a job offer in Black Mountain, Colorado. On the way, his truck breaks down in a blizzard, landing him at the home of a pregnant woman and her kids.

Garrett and Sunny bond when she gives birth. Garrett realizes he doesn’t have to be the biological father of a child to love one, and Sunny knows she’s found the man she’s been seeking. Together, they can create the family they’ve both been longing for.

AUTHOR BIO:

Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Romance appeals to her because there's just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. D’Ann’s particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them. This is probably because she draws inspiration from the area where she lives, Western Colorado, her husband of twenty-nine years and their daughter. Composites of their small farm, herd of horses, five Australian shepherds, a Queensland heeler, nine ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!

  2. D'Ann, I saw that *Sunny Days Ahead* is free today on amazon.com. I downloaded it and can't wait to dig in! It sounds like such an emotion-driven story. And it's got a cowboy in it. What more could a gal want? BTW -- I've been following your blog for a while and I knew all the answers to your questions except for the one about your being a night owl. Me, too!
