@LoniFlowers Opens Up About Family, Her Personal Life and Writing #Romance #AmReading

Tell us a bit about your family. My husband and I have been married since 2001 and we live in Eastern North Carolina. We have 2 daughters, age 5 and 8. Also, we have 2 dogs and 1 bird.

What scares you the most? - Without a doubt -heights, and spiders, and bees and wasp! Sorry, I can’t just pick one thing.

What’s your greatest character strength? I have an awesome sense of humor. My husband says I laugh at everything! (Yes, even commercials)

What’s your weakest character trait? Public speaking-- to a point where I feel nauseous. I absolutely hate it.

Why do you write? Because it's fun, plain and simple. I get the freedom to create stories exactly as I want to read them. What's better than that?!

What are you most proud of in your personal life? My family. I have a wonderful husband who loves and supports me 100%. He even cooks and cleans! But also, I'm so proud of the two beautiful girls we are raising.

What books did you love growing up? You're going to think I'm crazy, but none. I hated reading growing up. I don't know if it was because I never got the right book in my hands, but the will to read wasn't in me. Thank goodness I found it. What was I thinking growing up!!

How did you develop your writing? I'm still developing. It's a constant growth. I can tell how much I've grown from each book I've written. I believe reading other authors and studying my own mistakes through the editing process are my biggest help. And if I don't know something, I'll Google it in a heartbeat. There is a wealth of knowledge out there just for the taking. All you have to do is be willing to look for it.

What is hardest – getting published, writing or marketing? It's all hard, but without a doubt: Marketing. I'm not a pushy person, and I don't like the feeling that I'm spamming my buy-links everywhere on social media. It's hard to find the balance between sharing your own work and sharing others work.

Do you plan to publish more books? Definitely! I'm already working on my next book. It involves sexy brothers, a vineyard, wine and a second chance at love.

Witness to my Heart
Keep a low profile. That's what Abigale Peterson was supposed to do, especially when the person she was being protected from was one of the world's worst crime lords. After seven years in the Witness Protection Program, she felt no safer now than she did when she was seventeen. Revenge was rarely forgotten when it came to a professional criminal like Zerilli.

Low profiles meant no social life and definitely no love life.

Paranoia and lies became daily habits, going against everything Abigale believed in, but they kept her safe. They kept everyone safe.

Until a house fire puts her out of that safety and into the arms of a stranger. Max Smith is sexy, smart, and has major attitude. He’s the only one who seems to get her. He calms her fears and comforts her from her nightmares. But he also sees right through her lies.

Before Abigale can stop, she’s in too deep; confiding too much and breaking the one rule she promised herself to uphold: Never fall in love.
