My name is Connie Ann Michael, I am from Montana, although originally from Washington State. I moved to Montana 6 years ago.
I am a pretty introverted person so I am not sure that people notice me much when I walk into a room, but you can bet I am taking everyone in...you know for story ideas. Ha ha
I love the outdoors and my husband, dogs, and myself can be found hiking or walking everyday.
Tell Us About Your Book:
I have 4 books in the Thousand Moments Series, A Thousand Stolen Moments is the first in the series:
From Book 1: Can you choose between fighting for your life and fighting for your heart? When twenty-two year old Emme Sawyer joins a Marine unit heading into Helmand Providence, she focuses on what she does best: keeping her men safe. But, when the unit is hit by an IED, Emme realizes she can’t save everyone. With her humanity on the line, and her faith in question, she seeks comfort from Raven, her commanding officer. Soon, Emme develops feelings that don’t belong in a combat zone, where each step could be your last. Raven keeps his emotions locked up tight, never allowing the men to see him sweat. But when Emme joins his unit, all bets are off; and the feelings he thought he left stateside begin to emerge. Knowing that the deserts of Afghanistan are the last place to start a romance, and the United States military’s view on fraternizing; Raven tries to deny his heart. Emme and Raven learn you can’t always choose where love finds you. And that sometimes, you just have to trust in God’s plan.
Share one thing that you found difficult or challenging about writing this book.
The most challenging thing about writing this book is that I knew the entire story in my head but had to pare it down to one book that wasn't 500 pages long.
Ask the blog reader a quirky question or two.
You would have thought that Covid was a great opportunity to get all my stories that I have put on the back burner, out into the world but surprisingly I didn't actually write much this past year. I'm curious what you all did to fill time during covid?
I love mountain biking! My son and I have mountain bike since he was little and we always went for tacos after a ride. Our last ride didn't go so well. I went over the handlebars and got banged up pretty good. I have to say I haven't seen that much blood leaving my body before. Well a few tissues later I was good and we went for our tacos. Of course I started to bleed again. The man at the counter just looked at me, no offer of a napkin or a band-aid. Finally a nice lady handed me a wet wipe. Have any of you had a moment when you are in an uncomfortable moment and someone you didn't know stepped in to help you?
