Peggy Bird with Rionna Morgan

I am very excited today for our guest, Peggy Bird! She is a Crimson Romance Sister and I am so proud to call her friend! Peggy has always been a writer: stories when she was a kid, plays for her cousins to perform, terrible adolescent poetry--so she says!  But now she's a romance novelist...what a wonderful profession.

She is visiting with us today on her Release Day!  What an honor. AND she's give away an e-book copy of Loving Again!

Rionna:  Where are you from? 
Peggy:  I'm originally from Philadelphia but have been living in the Pacific Northwest for so long I have webbed feet. Only time the moss dried out was the two years I spent living in Montana!
Wonderful...if you ever make it to Montana again, be sure to look me up.  

Rionna:  Tell us your latest news? 
Peggy:  The exciting news is the November 12th release by Crimson Romance of "Loving Again," book #2 in the Second Chance series. In this book I got to write not only about Portland Oregon, a city I love, but also about my other artistic passion, glass art. My heroine, Amanda, is a glass artist--although, full disclosure, she's considerably better at it than I am.
This IS so exciting!  We are release sisters!!  My book Love's Justice is also released today! Yay us!!

Rionna:  Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? 
Peggy:  The message from all the books I've written in this series is that there is always another chance, a second act, another time at bat. I'm such an optimist, I believe it's true in love, in life and even in writing careers. 
I love this about you.  What a great, great message to send to readers, especially in today's world.

Rionna:  If someone wrote a book about your life, what would they title it? 
Peggy:  Probably "The Woman Who Couldn't Settle on One Career."
Funny!  But I think you've found your niche!

Rionna:  What is the ultimate dream vacation? 
Peggy:  A place where good art, good food and good company intersect. Italy comes to mind. Paris, of course. London (the Indian food is fabulous and I have friends there). Vancouver BC? (Not sure about the art. Food and people are wonderful.)
...hmmm.  I think I'd like to come along in your suitcase!

Rionna:  What person in history would you most like to meet? 
Peggy:  Shakespeare so I could write the definitive book on whether he authored all those plays and sonnets.
I totally agree.  I would so love to meet The Bard.

Rionna:  If you could design a refrigerator magnet, what would it say? 
Peggy:  Do not open the door and graze. (In capital letters. Bold. Underlined.)
I think I need this one too... for my children.

One spring evening, at an art gallery opening, Portland police detective Sam Richardson meets Amanda St. Claire, a talented, young glass artist. He’s immediately attracted to her. Trouble is, they’re introduced by Amanda’s boyfriend, restaurant and club owner Tom Webster.

Then, Webster is murdered and Amanda’s accused of killing him. Amanda and Sam grow closer as they try to clear her name. Strange things begin to happen. Another glass artist publicly accuses her of stealing his ideas. She’s stalked while out running errands. The sensor on the back door to her basement keeps going off, as if someone is trying to get into her house. Her studio is repeatedly broken into.

Then, two more people are killed and the evidence points, again, to Amanda as the killer. And this time, Sam’s life is threatened, too. On her own Amanda comes up with a plan to protect him. A plan that means she will have to shut him out of her life. But she can’t let anything happen to him, not after everything he did for her.

Even if it means losing the only man she’s ever loved.
