What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Small town romances have been popular for years, but I didn’t want to create one for my readers until I had time to build upon the foundations that are imperative in a well written small town romance. Here Comes Trouble sets the stage for a community like any other with a few obvious differences right from the start. It’s a safety haven for abused women but the founding fathers have opened their gates to some comical characters along the way, too. Hopefully readers will enjoy visiting Trouble and will revisit often as these books unfold with vibrant characters in a world that could exist just a stone’s throw from any other American city.

Ms. Borg now lives in a diversified lake community in Arkansas, where she continues to write historical and contemporary fiction.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The idea for this novella rattled around in my head for a long time under the title Mountain Meadows. Then, against my better judgment, I listened to general sentiment and named it Clouds of the Heart. I was also wrong in choosing a cover that clearly pandered to a different crowd. Under “readers also looked at…” the books that came up had muscles bulging, bosoms heaving, bodies thrashing…you get the idea. Those readers would be clearly disappointed with my protagonist’s journey into darkness (and probably impatient with my rather lyrical writing style).

I ditched Clouds and renamed the novella Shadow Sanctuary giving it a new cover; no heaving. Granted, both may appear esoteric to the casual reader, and I won’t get rich with it. But I am a lot happier to have my name associated with this one.

I feel that my decision “to pander or not to pander” is the right one. All I can hope for is that my readers will agree.
