Hi everyone, fall is finally here. Time to think about pumpkins and the coming holiday. If you like cooler temperatures, fall festivals and knitting, you'll love Hearts Knit Together. This novella is author Kris Ann Brown's debut and perfect for October. Kris is not only an awesome writer but she's one of my critique partners. Thank you, Kris!
Kris A. Brown resides in beautiful Northeast Wisconsin.
When she's not writing, she loves reading, Bible studies, everything to do with Christmas, hiking in the woods and playing with her Ragdoll kitty Jingles.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not writing?
It depends on what time of year it is, but I love the outdoors and will usually be working in the garden or taking a walk on a nearby trail that runs along the river. If it's winter, I tend to cozy up indoors and do a lot of reading. I am starting to take up craft projects. This fall I'm planning on making illuminated outdoor lanterns out of wood as Christmas presents for my siblings. (shhhh, don't tell them)
What inspired you to write 'Hearts Knit Together'?
The Lord planted the desire to write in me at a very young age. In the fourth grade I would write short stories in my free time and give them to my teacher to 'critique'. As I grew older life became busy and writing dropped to the wayside. Then, as I grew older and gained more life experience, the desire began to grow again. The idea for 'Hearts Knit Together' began as I mused over my varied dates over the years, and what my ideal future husband would look like. Hallmark movies sparked a few ideas as well.
How did you choose the title of your book?
My title was originally "Patty's Pizza Place". After pondering it, I wanted a title that tied in Patty's newfound connection with the knitters as well as touch on the romance. That is when 'Hearts Knit Together' came into mind, and it seemed to be the perfect fit.
Are you working on a new project you can tell us about?
Yes! I am currently working on a Christian fiction mystery romance, tentatively titled "Crescent Bay Cottages". It is set in a resort in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. I used to go camping every summer with my folks, and Crescent Bay is loosely based off a place we stayed at. The story follows Jackie, a career woman living in Chicago who finds herself suddenly jobless and without a purpose. At the urging of her mother, she stays at her folks' cottage in Crescent Bay. She befriends the handsome resort handyman, Danny as well as her next-door neighbor Debbie. When mysterious crimes begin to occur in the resort, Danny and Jackie team up to find the culprit. But will they find him before it's too late and someone gets hurt? What will become of their budding romance with Jackie's career in Chicago and Danny rooted in the quiet lifestyle of the Northwoods?
Thanks Kris for sharing Hearts Knit Together. I know Crescent Bay will be a wonderful book readers will enjoy.
