Christina Wolfer and The Daughter


Osiyo~

WooHoo! Gonna have a party on the Ranch today! My Diva Christina Wolfer is here with the beer and I have the weenies. I think I see Joelene and Lo trailing in with wine! Ruth and Clancy will be good for the food and chocolate if they make it in. So let’s get started! Go for it Tina. The round pen’s all yours!

Hi Ya’ll,

I’m thrilled to be guest blogging on the ranch today. I’ve spent enough time here over the last year and a half and often behind the scenes sitting on the porch with Calisa and a few other Diva’s throwing back a few drinks, eating little weenies and discussing men, writing and life as it comes at us.

Before I go any further though, I want to give a big shout out to Calisa, on her debut release, HOME. A fabulous story.

Aw dang, thanks Tina. *blushes*

So why am I here, you may be asking? I’m not just filling a hole in the calendar, well, I am doing that too, but more than that I’m here to tell you a little about me and my newest release, THE DAUGHTER, which came out January 14th from Turquoise Morning Press.

Like Calisa, I’m a small-town country girl through and through and I share her passion for horses. Writing, like reading, has always been a part of my life. I write romantic suspense and romance with strong elements of suspense set in current times.

When I first headed off to college, my plan was to get my degree in Social Services with my primary desire to work with children, to save them really and help them have better lives. I went to work at a runaway shelter near my hometown and learned the realities of what I would really be able to do. During that time, I got to work along side some great Social Workers who invested emotionally in the lives of others. Okay, so now you’re probably wondering what all this has to do with anything. The heroine in THE DAUGHTER is a social worker; however, she’s working to get prostitutes off the street.  

Back book blurb:

Abandoned by her mother at birth, social worker Katie Delynski believes love and relationships are learned—and she hasn’t learned anything good about either. She avoids both love and relationships by focusing on her career and by getting prostitutes off the street. But when a man she’s never met commits suicide and names her as his daughter, leaving her millions of dollars and a family full of new relatives, things change. Her new family invites her into their lives, stirring a sense of belonging she is afraid to believe in.
Determined to put her windfall to good use, Katie buys an old building for a women’s shelter. Her newfound family puts her in touch with Conner Patterson, a family friend, to help rehab the building. As work progresses, Katie finds herself falling in love with Conner, but fear keeps her from acting on her feelings. It soon becomes apparent, though, that Conner may be her only hope for survival, when someone hurt by her father’s past indiscretions is determined to make Katie pay for her father’s sins.

    I remember you telling me that you took calls from a hotline for kids. I’m sure you helped more kid work through their troubles than you will ever know. It would be great if you could see how they are doing today. Just think how many people you touch with your books! I loved the bravery of Amanda in Two Brothers.

    • Hi Karen,
      It means a lot to me that you stopped in and left a comment. You have such a good memory. I truly enjoyed working with those kids and love the idea of touching peoples lives with my stories, even if it’s something as simple as letting them get away from reality for a few hours. Thank you for your support. Hugs!

    • Chris, you are just flat out awesome, but I’m sure you hear that all the time from the ladies. So cool of you to stop in and leave a comment. I know how busy things can get. I downloaded a book by Karen Rose to my Nook hoping to read this week, but it looks like it will have to wait.

      Next in the works is Emotional Warfare. You’ll get a kick out of this as it has to do with our business – Aerospace. And illegal exports. This one is scheduled for release in August of this year. Thanks again, buddy.

  9. Hey there girl! Had no clue you actually considered Social Services prior to making your decision to be a writer. While you have the intelligence and compassion to be a Social Worker, I’m SO glad you took the writing avenue. Can hardly wait for the book version to be released. Loved Undercover and The Daughter promises to be awesome reading as well. Keep ’em coming!

    • Hey, girl. So awesome that you left a comment. And I saw your post on facebook about your first thought when I mentioned career choice in connection to The Daughter. You could have gotten away with saying that here. She thought I meant the prostitution part, ladies. Haha! Hugs, Kathy, thank you so much.

      Thank you, Jerrie. This is the third book I’ve written, the first is still under the bed and the second book was my 1st release, but The Daughter has been a favorite of mine because of the tough issue of prostitution that it deals with. So glad you stopped in.

  11. *hiccup* I’ve arrived, but the bottle’s empty. Sorry. Been editing…and well, we know that can drive anyone to drink. LOVE your cover! Don’t throw my hat in the drawing – I got mine the day it released. I’m reading all my Diva’s stories and they rock, but I didn’t expect anything else. Thanks for giving me a reason to return to the ranch. I’m off to find Lo. Hopefully, she still has some liquid bravery left.
