Lorraine Paton

Thank you so much for inviting me over to your blog today, Donna! :-) This has been fun!

Donna Cummings

Thanks for being here, Lorraine! I had tons of fun too. :)

S. J. Maylee

Ginger spiced latte, I must try this. Soccer is a big deal in my house. The hubs and I both play and now we're getting our boys to play too. Much fun.
I fell for Lorraine six sentences at a time too. Congratulations on your debut. I'm so happy for you. :)

Donna Cummings

I'm intrigued by the ginger spiced latte too. I'll definitely try that when winter rolls around again. So you're a soccer fiend, are you? Good thing you've got your whole family into it. :) And I love this: "I fell for Lorraine six sentences at a time too." What a great description!

Lorraine Paton

S.J. - You should absolutely try the ginger spiced latte! Although, I don't think it'll be available until closer to Thanksgiving. It is one of my fave things about winter!

And, you are both making me blush. :-) Thanks!

Donna Cummings

It's fun to make you blush! :) Since I don't really HAVE a favorite thing about winter, I may have to adopt the ginger spice latte now. LOL


I'm loving the Friday Friends interviews, but I am especially loving the excerpts! Oh, what wonderful imagery with the sunlight and the hero looking like a Greek god. Sigh. Well, no wonder why Greece came to mind first, Lorraine, for the place to go for a writing retreat! LOL

Donna Cummings

Melissa, I'm so glad you're enjoying these! And I hadn't made the connection between the Greek god and the Greek writing retreat. It makes perfect sense though, doesn't it? LOL

Lorraine Paton

Hi, Melissa! I'm glad you enjoyed the excerpt! :) I agree with your sigh. Aw, Devin... he's as yummy as the ginger spice latte! (And, I hadn't made that connection between Greece and the Greek God reference either - LOL!)

Deb Salonen

Great snippet!

My very first book was a cowboy/family story. I loved writing the barn scenes. Something so visceral and earthy!

Lorraine Paton

Thank you, Deb! There are a couple of barn scenes in Devin's Second Chance, and I had a lot of fun with them. I love cowboy stories!

Donna Cummings

I love cowboy stories too -- such sexy creatures! I'm looking forward to more of these barn scenes. :)

Heather Boyd

So your characters have you on a timetable with their clock watching huh? Very impatient of them. LOL Great interview ladies. I never knew you taught Lorraine. Cool!

Lorraine Paton

Hi, Heather! Yes, my characters *were* impatient but I don't know why... it isn't like there was a race against time to save the world or anything like that. Maybe they were trying to tell me something like: "Finish this already!" LOL

As for teaching, I teach classes at my writing group, usually once a year. And, I am co-teaching a 3 hour workshop on sexual tension at the When Words Collide conference in Calgary. It should be a lot of fun! I'm really looking forward to it. :)

Kate Warren

Lovely post, Donna and Lorraine!

Lorraine Paton

Thank you, Kate! It's been fun! :)

Donna Cummings

Eeek, Heather -- our characters are timing us? LOL How can I goof off if they're doing that?

Kate, thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

Lorraine, thanks again for being here. It was such a treat!

Lorraine Paton

Donna, thank you again for a lovely day! :-)

Patricia Preston

I'm late to the party but enjoyed the interview! Lorraine, we need to keep you away from barns. :)

Mae Clair

Late again. Ack! I don't know where Friday went.

Really enjoying these interviews, Donna. Lorraine, it may sound strange, but I would definitely take the lakeside cottage over Greece. I've always dream of secluded waterside retreat. *happy sigh*

Looking forward to Annie's Christmas Plan. Devin's Second Chance stole my heart. Wishing you continued success for an awesome book!

Donna Cummings

Lorraine -- you're so welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Patricia -- you crack me up! Lorraine and barns are a good thing. :)

Mae -- you're not late. Internet time lasts forever. :) I'll take just about any getaway. In fact, I'd need a getaway from my getaway, so both choices sound good!
