Hunters, I’m happy to introduce Margaret Daley at this stop. Margaret is the author of nearly 100 books, a past president of American Christian Fiction Writers, and a wife, mother and grandmother. You can learn more about her by visiting her website or her Facebook page and/or by following her on Twitter.

Margaret, it’s a pleasure to have you as a guest today. Let’s talk about your new novella, Deadly Hunt, which is a part of the new Inspy Kisses collection, First Kisses (Love Inspired, March 2014). Please tell us about the project.

Deadly Hunt is the first novella in my Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations Series. I want to feature strong women going about their jobs as police officers, fire fighters, bodyguards. The first novella is about a female bodyguard who has her vacation interrupted when a wounded man crashes into her cabin and she becomes his lifeline.

DivineDetour is all about detours. Please tell us about a detour that changed your life for the better.

I never thought I was equipped to write Christian fiction but the Lord stepped in as He often does and showed me I was. I’d written for twenty years in the secular market but everything change in 2000. I found my home as a Christian fiction writer.

You now have almost 100 books published, several releasing this year. How do you manage your writing time?

I write six days a week and give myself weekly goals in order to write the books I do.

Thanks, Margaret!
