She's here to answer a few questions for us! Welcome Chris!

Bio:
Chris Redding lives in New Jersey with her husband, two kids, one dog and three rabbits. She has always wanted to be a writer. She graduated from Penn State with a degree in journalism with an English minor. When she isn’t writing, she works part time for her local hospital.

When and why did you begin writing?
I began writing when I was ten. We had an assignment for English class to write a story. I wrote about a lady with lots of cats.  I began writing for publication in 1997 when I was pregnant with my second child. Something about that pregnancy had my creative juices flowing.

What inspired you to write your first book?
I don’t remember. I was 14 at the time. I wrote in class instead of paying attention.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

Written? Probably 8 start to finish. I have more than that half done. My favorite is whatever I am working on at the time.

Is there a message in your novels that you want readers to grasp?

I always love this question. No, there isn’t. I’m not that deep.


Do you have any current projects you’re working on?

Right now I am in the middle of developing 2 writing workshops. Then I will get back to writing another thriller.

What do you think makes a good story?

You have to identify with the characters and the story has to make you forget you are reading a book.

Where is your favorite place to write?

I have a laptop so I travel. In the winter I write in my front room because it is the warmest room in the house.

Anything you would like to add?

I love to write. I get cranky when I don’t write for a while and when I do write I feel as if my body secretes endorphins. I’m happy for the whole day.

Great answers! Thank you so much for answering those questions for us! And congratulations on your releases this month!

Here are the two books being released this month!



Waking up next to a dead guy can ruin your whole day.

When a wise-cracking interior decorator wants to put her past behind her, the dead body of the mayor’s son makes it pretty clear that won’t happen too easily.

A conservative former computer geek for the FBI is holding on too tightly to his past. His wife died under suspicious circumstances and he believes the decorator has the information to solve the case. Unfortunately for him, she isn’t talking… until a series of events convinces her she needs protection especially when her biggest secret threatens to destroy both their lives.






YOU JUST CAN'T HIDE FROM THE PAST...

Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.

Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory's life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don't have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.

Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.
