FEBRUARY IS FOR ROMANCE AUTHORS!

MEET LAWNA MACKIE

My name is Lawna and I’m an avid romance reader and author. I wanted to share something about me that was a bit different and something that my readers may not know.

Well, I’m an animal lover through and through. I love them all and it doesn’t matter what kind. Domestic, wild, feathered, or furred. Whatever I write will always have an animal or fantasy critter bouncing off the pages. I can guarantee they will steal your heart away. Most of my readers will know this, but what some of them don’t know is how I come up with ideas. Okay, hang in there I’ll share that in a moment.

I love outdoors and camping. I’m certain I was born in a tent. I have two cats and a giant Alaskan Malamute, and they love camping with us. The cats do not hang out on leashes. They are free to go wherever they please. They also love going for walks and will literally tag along for miles, and no they are never on a leash.

The other thing I love to do when we go camping is to go swimming. Now bear in mind…in May the ice doesn’t come off the lakes and rivers until the end of the month. I, however, am never discouraged and always find myself in the water. Nobody ever comes with me, but hey I can’t blame them for that.

I have numerous stories regarding the wilderness, some fictional and some not so much. By the time I was five I had my first fishing trophy, had a pet Kingfisher (a bird), saw skunks daily, and at twelve, gained the trust and friendship of a wolf named Scram. Oh, the stories I could tell.

After a wonderful day of camping my favorite snack is Fudgee O cookies and a glass of milk. This is where the magic happens. I close my eyes and dream! Boy do I dream! Aero chocolate bars have the same effect. On one adventure I dreamt of a hippo-dog-burrowing owl and a critter called Storm Cat. My incredible artist girlfriend drew them for me. If you ask, I’d be happy to share the pictures.

There you have it…a little about me that you might not have known. I hope you’ll join me and read a couple of my books. I’m sure there is something for everyone from contemporary, suspense, thrillers, fantasy, paranormal to erotica. Each one with a whole lot of love and romance.

Here’s a look at Lawna’s latest release CAST IN STONE:

Emma Taggart is a headstrong determined woman who knows exactly what she wants. That would be Finn Avery—not because he’s a multimillionaire with a mountain of gold—literally, but because all her life she’s had a crush on him. He also happens to be her best friend’s brother.

When Emma finds herself in the small town of Dawson City, Yukon, for a second time, she realizes the beauty of the wilderness has grown on her. Granted the place is a far cry from the glamorous city of Chicago. Her job was to film and produce a special story for a prominent Chicago fashion magazine. It seemed a perfect way for her to spend time with Finn.

Trouble begins when Finn’s best friend and partner passes away. Finn blames himself for the death and turns away from those who care. Emma knows he cares for her, the heated moments spent together spoke the truth, but now she can’t seem to break through to him.

When a pompous billionaire, Marco Bishop, comes parading into town offering to buy the Charlie Avery Gold Mine, Finn is furious. The man has little respect for the town and its heritage, even worse he has come to fancy Emma and is determined to have her as his next conquest. Not only does Marco want the gold mine, but he’s certain he knows where to find diamonds. Marco persuades Emma to take a day trip with him up into the mountains, but by the time she realizes there is more to his plans, she knows she’s in terrible trouble.

Finn suspects Emma has been taken against her will. He is determined to find her and bring her home. It’s another adventure into the brutal wilderness, where the rivers are as wild as the animals they encounter.

Along the way Emma, Finn and Groot…the baby wolverine…yes, a baby wolverine, discover some interesting clues cast in the stones. Finn refuses to let anything happen to Emma but wonders if it might be too late. His great-great uncle once wrote—true treasures come from the heart.
