Kathleen Y'Barbo's new release, Flora's Wish!

Welcome to Fliterary! We love making new friends.
Let’s sit together on the swings and you can introduce yourself:

You have a new book out, what’s it about?
My newest release is Flora’s Wish, book 1 of the Secret Lives of Will Tucker series from Harvest House

Here’s what Publisher’s Weekly said about Flora’s Wish:

“Fans of post-Civil War stories set in the South will find much to enjoy in Y’Barbo’s first in the Secret Lives of Will Tucker series. “Fatal Flora,” called such because of the deaths of four of her fiancés, is eager to marry Will Tucker when she meets up with him in Eureka Springs, Ark. Instead she discovers Lucas McMinn, a Pinkerton agent also searching for Tucker. Their initial meeting results in Flora Brimm of the Natchez Brimms in handcuffs and trying to explain to her proper and formidable grandmother what’s going on. Flora and Lucas seem destined to work together on the case, with Lucas vowing Tucker is guilty and Flora saying he isn’t. As they get to know each other, Lucas discovers Flora is more than a spoiled Southern belle and she discovers Lucas is more than a stubborn Pinkerton. But will Flora marry Tucker to save her inheritance? Historical romance fans will adore this charming story.”

Where can we buy it?
Bookstores everywhere and online at Christianbook.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.

If we invited your main character to sit with us, how would she/he react?
Pinkterton Lucas McMinn would probably be impatient. He’s not the type to sit and chat. Flora Brimm, however, is the consummate Natchez belle and would not only be polite but would likely offer to pour tea.

What would they say? What advice would they give?
Flora would tell you that getting ahead of God is a dangerous thing to do. Lucas, however, would say that no matter how good revenge feels, it’s neither our place nor a good idea to make the attempt.

If any one person from history could sit with us, who would it be and why?
I could name dozens of people, so this is a tough one. What about Vincent Van Gough? I love his work and would really be interested in a conversation with him.

Why did you choose to be a Christian writer and what does it mean to you?
Becoming a Christian was a process for me. I was in church for years before I was challenged to take my relationship with Jesus to a deeper level. Before I had a religion, now I have a relationship with Jesus. Big difference.

What advice do you have for aspiring authors?
Write. Often. Edit. Write more. Repeat!
