Calisa Rhose presents ~ Sandra Bruney with A Question of Boundaries


Welcome one and all! Grab a beverage of choice, something sweet and sinful. No-no, not the men. What’s the matter with you? You know the hands-on rules… The guest gets first pick! 😉 Take a comfy seat for another, or a first, spin in the Round Pen.

I know, I know. I’m a day late posting this. Believe me, it’s been no bed of roses with a sick kid and an injured daughter. Nothing serious for wither, but it’s kept me running since Friday. Lol

SandyBruneySo, to get to today’s guest, I’m thrilled to welcome my friend and wonderfully talented writer, Sandy Bruney, who is sharing her book, “A Question of Boundaries” with us!

Please show Sandy some real Ranch love!

Before I get to the nosy 5-3-4 part of this interview, tell us a bit about you.

Okay, I’ll begin with five questions, then follow with three more, and end with four final ones.

My writing area at the moment is a corner of the couch in my living room. What does your writing space look like?

A total disaster. Books, notebooks, papers, and of course a dish of candy to munch when I need some energy. Jelly beans right now.

For a lot of writers it’s a life-altering event coming up with titles and character names. Others it comes as naturally as breathing. Which is it for you?

Some are hard, and some are easy. Either they pop immediately in my head or I have to look through the telephone book or the obituary page in the newspaper.

What advice would you offer aspiring and new writers?

Learn the craft. Take workshops, go to conferences, read books. And never, ever give up your dream.

The constant shift of the industry makes me often scratch my head and ask ‘what next?’ So, what do you think it takes to be a successful author at the moment?

Write the story only you can write. Fads come and go before we know it. By the time you write in the genre popular at the moment, it will have changed.

Who would you like to meet in the publishing industry- dead or alive- and why?

Donald Maas. He’s inspiring and knowledgeable.

It’s time for 3 in 1! I’ll ask the questions and you answer them in one word. 😆

Favorite animal? Cat

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter? Fall

Favorite food? Fried chicken

Well done! 🙂

Okay, Flash four. Ready? What are you working on now?

A sequel to “A Question of Boundaries” called “A Question of Loyalty.”

What are you sharing today?

AQuestionofBoundaries_SBBy 1895, the United States is in the 80th year of the isolation imposed by King Thomas I and upheld by his successors. But, some are chafing under the shortages and restrictions, and when inventor Dr. Featherstone declares he has found a way to override all borders, there are those who applaud the discovery and those who fear it.

When Dr. Featherstone fails to return home for an important scientific gathering, his daughter Caroline enlists the help of the Member of Parliament from Charlotte, Nathan Llewellen. As the two search for the kidnappers, Caroline is plunged into a world where travel to other realities is possible in the blink of an eye, and people can assume the forms of fearsome as well as familiar animals…and where love comes at the most unexpected times and places.

Nathan’s peculiar gift might cost Caroline her life, but she has already lost her heart. 

Where can we find you and your books?

Where will you be next?

Thank you so much for playing along Sandy! Wishing you much luck with your book and writing. I hope you’ll come visit again one day.


About Calisa Rhose

I'm a mother of three daughters and wife to a wonderful man of 35+ years. I'm also an avid seamstress, polymer clay artisan and die-hard crafter, always coming up with things to make with, and for, my six granddaughters and two grandsons. Check out my craft site when you have a moment. I'm also a small online business owner of Okie fLips on Etsy and Poshmark (eBay/Merkari coming soon), and I'm a published author of sensual romance. I write about stubborn men and women who don't take no for an answer, and there's always that golden HEA. Cowboys and first responders are my favorite contemporary heroes to write about. My light paranormal heroes are strong men ready to protect their women--not that they need protecting, since they are capable of caring for themselves.

  1. Thank you, Elbert, for the kind words.

    Sandy is an excellent developer of characters, especially the distaff side. Her female characters emanate an aura of strong-minded women who so often find themselves in difficult situations and who must survive on their wits and, yes, brawn. She’s my friend, so I could be a bit biased. NAH!


  3. Thanks for inviting me, Calisa! I didn’t leave an excerpt, but readers can find one on my website, Also the book trailer, created by my very talented son.
