Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes women's historical fiction novelist Barb Warner Deane to the studio. Barb Warner Deane grew up in the beautiful Finger Lakes area of New York. She graduated from Cornell University and the University Of Connecticut, School of Law. Barb, her husband, and daughters have lived in the Chicago area for the past twenty-five years, other than two years in Frankfurt, Germany and two years in Shanghai, China. She draws a lot of writing inspiration from travel and her experiences as an expat. On The Homefront, her historical women’s fiction novel, was inspired by a trip to Normandy, France. After giving up the practice of law, Barb owned Barb's All Romance Book Store, and has worked in many types of jobs, including her current gig as an IT tech specialist for a high school.
About her book: THEN THERE WAS YOU: Marnie Edwards thinks she has her life together. Then State Trooper Scott Randall starts asking mysterious questions at the same time she learns her mother has been hospitalized with cancer. When a bedside confession reveals she was adopted, suddenly Scott's investigation into child-trafficking becomes personal.
Every time Scott turns around, he learns Marnie has something to do with his current investigation. Finding himself falling for the beguiling, strong-willed brunette isn't helping, especially when he's still nursing the wounds of his failed marriage.
When he and Marnie find themselves thrown together to help a pregnant teen who's being blackmailed into giving up her baby, they have to figure out what's important and who they are to each other, before it's too late.
