The Writer's View: R.T. Wolfe


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. R.T. will be giving away a $40 Amazon or BN.com Gift Certificate, winner's choice, to one randomly drawn commenter at the conclusion of the tour. Click on the banner above to see the other stops on the tour.

The view outside my window is, to a small degree, the view outside the window of Brianna Chapman’s, the main character in Black Creek Burning, home. When I look beyond my property, I see a broad field full of tall grasses, a lake shallow enough to attract Blue Herons that spills over into a creek with wide flood plains filled with wildflowers and cattails.

If I look closer, I see my yard framed with pockets of landscaping plots that I designed and planted myself. One hundred thirty-six plants, shrubs and trees. I counted. LOL I live in a complete four season climate and worked to ensure perennials full of color bloom throughout three of them.

When I look closer yet, I see a circular brick patio at the base of my deck that surrounds a fire pit. Here is where I prefer to do my writing. I have an aged Adirondack chair and foot stool that I probably place too close to the fire. The flat arm rests serve as the place for my phone, iPad and notepad. My legs are the desk for my laptop.

Using the view outside my window, the Black Creek Burning book trailer photo shoot was scheduled to take place behind my home. Much to my surprise, the photographer took a number of photos in my back yard. I would have deadheaded my gaillardia had I known. :-) I hope you take time to view the trailer, it’s truly beautiful and to read my romantic suspense, Black Creek Burning, it’s intense, heartwarming and a tough mystery to solve.


About the Author:
R.T. was born and raised in the Midwest, the youngest of six children. She married at a young age and decided early on she wanted a family herself. With three small boys in tow, she and her husband flipped two houses with R.T. in charge of the landscape design and install. Now, she is rooted in the final home they designed inside and out. Now that her boys are nearly grown, R.T. spends much of her time on the road traveling from one sporting event to another serving as mom and cheerleader. When at home, she enjoys Pilates, working with her Golden Retriever and digging in the glorious dirt of her landscaping plots.

During one of many busy and restless nights, R.T.’s first novel began to pluck its way onto her laptop. It was a drug, an instant addiction that only grew with time. Moments borrowed and stolen at her laptop are, now, between all of the travel and work and many of those busy, restless nights. After several edits, revisions and versions later R.T.’s first novel, Black Creek Burning, will debut September 24th.

Brianna Chapman learns to handle just about anything. Witnessing the murder of her parents had that effect. Knowing the unsolved arson had been meant for her isn’t as easy to overcome. Instead, she stuffs her guilt soundly into her subconscious through diving into the teaching job she loves by day and the dirt of the landscaping business she owns by night. Her habit of remaining aloof to personal relationships is, well, working.

Will her guilt be as easy to keep buried if the killer comes back to finish the job?

In the midst of juggling a scorched yard, dead animals on her doorstep and her vandalized car, the one thing she didn’t count on was the staggering Nathan Reed. A nationally renowned woodworking artist, Nathan and his two priceless nephews move into the run-down historical house behind her and over Black Creek. They have a canny way of maneuvering around her aloof demeanor and into her heart. Will they still want to be part of her life when they discover she is haunted by past memories and hunted by present dangers?

Your backyard is gorgeous. I can see why you want to write outdoors if that's what you can look at. Very nice trailer. They did a great job.

Ingebord,
If you enjoy working outside, you'll definitely like Black Creek Burning. The heroine designs the hero's property. Okay, that may have been a spoiler alert. :)
Thank you following the tour!
