Brenda J--What a great story. I really like how Dana pulled history into this modern day romance. The characters were great and really pulled me in...I'm amazed at how in depth the family history was and how enjoyable it was getting to know all about them. I can't wait to read the next book!!

In Out of the Past, although the story is contemporary and more simple and modern language, I was able to give another nod to Ms. Woodiwiss in the story, which is unique. It was thrilling to be able to weave the story in such a way to be able to do so.

Even the music choices are shout-outs to some of my favorite artists and their music. The song references of Out of the Past were important to me and are not random. I wanted those song references to help set the scenes.
World famous cover model Jimmy Thomas (the model on the cover of both of my books) graciously agreed to be in the book.
Dreamcatchers Equine Rescue outside Colorado Springs also allowed the characters to inhabit their REAL ranch and mixing the real people with fictional characters was a blast. Mixing the real, with Torie and her fictional party of characters, will continue in the rest of the series.

THE NEXT BIG THING
How this works: There are ten interview questions. I'll answer those for my current book, Out of the Past and then tag five more authors. They'll each tag five more, and so on. Here are the interview questions as applied to my book. Special thanks to Carol A. Spradling who tagged me—check out to see her Next Big Thing here.
Here are the 10 questions

Torie Mills was the first to admit she had issues-big time! She was a successful romance author, who didn't know the first thing about romance. Was in a dead end relationship with a high-powered, emotionally unavailable man and that suited her just fine. But when she decided to pack up and move to small town Iowa to find her roots and build a new life, she found much more than she ever dreamed possible.
Amazon 5 star reviews
*****Great story about life,love,time travel & loss.Emotional roller coaster ride for sure! There were parts where the tears just flowed and parts where you had to laugh.The characters are so lovable and real to life form.I really enjoyed this book and was in awe at the way the author had so much going on in the story line but kept me interested without losing me.
I'm not really into time travel books but this one had such an awesome twist to it that it made it seem real.And the true love between the characters Dave and Torie,was beyond awesome!Watching the love grow between them and watching Torie learn to trust her feelings was great. *Be warned...If you don't care hot steamy love scenes,you may want to skip those pages.I highly recommend this you read this awesome book on love,loss and going back in time.You won't be sorry!
