Oftentimes, people ask me,  “If you could pick an actor/actress to play [name character], who would it be?”

It’s not always easy to come up with someone, because in a writer’s mind, much like a reader’s mind, there is a very clear picture of who the character is.  It’s not, for me as a writer, anyway, like I see an actor and write a book around him.  So, it’s possible that you couldn’t find an actor who perfectly fit your character.

Fire-with-Fire-12That said, the other night, my husband and I watched Safe Haven.  I didn’t recognize the lead guy (Josh Duhamel), so when I saw him, I was kind of surprised.  He looks EXACTLY like my character in Burn (an unpublished novel), Ian MacDermott.  EXACTLY.  The entire movie, I couldn’t get over how much he talked like him, moved like him, looked like him — it was almost eerie.

AND, Gregg reminded me that we’d seen him once before – in a movie about a fireman!  I wrote the book about 15 years ago, so this is purely coincidental.

Unfortunately, unless I find a way to write a ghost, who is a main character and an integral part of the plot, out of Burn, it won’t ever be published.  So, chances are good you won’t ever meet Ian MacDermott, my Irish fireman in Chicago, who saves Anna Piedmont in more ways than one.  But, at least now you’ll know what he’s supposed to look like.

Disclaimer: Yes, I know I’ve stated we don’t watch anything that has premarital and/or extramarital sex in it.  Unfortunately, the movie Safe Haven did not follow the book Safe Haven, and we were disappointed in the Hollywoodishness of needing sex to portray a true and deep love.  As beautifully built as the love story was, that scene ruined it for us and I don’t recommend the movie.  Read the book.  Which I have not, but my daughter Kaylee has assured me that the couple do not have premarital sex in the book.

The Walking Bread; The Bread Will Rise! Is Now Available!

walkingbreadfrontfinal_v3.1

Book 2 in my Parody Cookbook Series, The Walking Bread; The Bread Will Rise! is now available! It will be available in ebook form ONLY on Amazon for the time being. You can get it at this link. It will be available in paperback everywhere.

While confronting and redeeming a recent popular secular phenomenon, Hallee Bridgeman, A.K.A. “Hallee the Homemaker” finds every grain of truth in her second whole food, real food cookbook with in-depth analysis and amazing recipes of yeast breads, quick breads, sourdoughs, and breads using grains other than wheat. The Walking Bread is a cookbook wrapped in a parody surrounded by a comedy with a tongue firmly inserted into a cheek — but the recipes are “dead serious” and may leave readers searching for all the tasty bread crumbs.

“I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” John 6:48-51

Readers, bakers, homemakers, and cooks all over the world will find themselves slathering the good stuff atop the muffins or corn bread; speeding through the quick breads; and going ape of over the banana bread. These bread recipes are so good, so healthy, and so easy you will want to pass them down from generation to generation.

“I was in a loaf or death situation yeasterday, then I found this cookbook! Now I’m on a roll.”
A homemaker in the USA TODAY said

“I used to rack my grain for hours trying to bake. I made such great bread with this book, my husband brought me flours.”
THE TIMES this has been said are numerous

“If you knead to get serious about the zombie apocalypse, this cookbook is ammunition.”
We’re sure the DAILY MIRROR wishes they had quoted this

“Instead of loafing around, I learned how to bake! Now I don’t feel so crumby!”
Part of SOUTHERN LIVING is overhearing these kinds of remarks now and then

Muffin wrong with this cookbook. If you’re serious about saving some dough, you butter memorize it. It’s the yeast you can do.”
A reader in WEST VIRGINIA JOURNALed

Robin’s heart is as cold as her deep blue eyes. After a terrifying childhood, she trusts neither God nor men. With kindness and faith, Tony prays for the opportunity to shatter the wall of ice around her heart.

Here’s the blurb:

To Robin Bartlett, men were nothing more than violent users. After a hair-raising childhood, Robin and her two younger half sisters battled simply to survive. Determined to give her sisters a very different life from that of their mother; to never have to rely on a man for anything, she worked two jobs and put them both through college, while accepting help from no one. Her heart had turned to ice and she had no use for men or God.

Antonio “Tony” Viscolli had grown up on the streets, homeless. At seventeen, he entered a downtown church with the intent of casing it, but found himself on his knees at the altar. After being fostered by the youth minister, Tony followed God’s leading and eventually became a very successful and powerful businessman. In a fallen world, he was a gem.

When Tony bought the restaurant where Robin bartended, she immediately resented his intrusion into her well ordered, but exhausting, life. She suspected his offering her special attention and constant kindness was merely his way of expecting something from her in return, something she wasn’t willing to give.

Tony knew God had led him to Robin. Would she ever allow herself to trust him? Could she ever allow herself to trust God? Or would the winter of their tragic youth rise from the shadows of the past and freeze any chance at happiness?
