She thought she’d escaped her past…
Has it caught up with her?
Erika Powell has lived in hiding for years to protect her son from his wealthy, tyrannical grandfather. Wary of strangers, she’s suspicious of James West, who’s renting a neighboring cabin, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when attempts are made on Erika’s life, James fears he may have endangered her—because the undercover PI’s investigation of Erika may have led someone dangerous right to her.

Shielding Her Son — Character Interview
Hi Erika and James — great to have both of you on my blog today to talk about your current adventure, Shielding Her Son, the fourth book in the West Investigation series.
Erika, you have been in hiding with your son to protect him from his grandfather. Tell us how that dire situation came about:
I was young when I married my first husband. He was not a nice man and our marriage wasn’t a happy one, in part because of my controlling father-in-law who never thought I was good enough for his son.
After my husband’s death, I found out I was pregnant right around the time my father-in-law cut me off. I had no money and nowhere to live but I knew that if my husband family found out I was pregnant they’d find a way to take my son and raise him to be just as vain and violent as my husband was.
So I did what any mother would do. I protected my son.
James, you met Erika while renting a cabin near her, what can you share with readers about why you happened to be there?
After leaving the military, I went to work for my family’s business West Security and Investigation.
West was hired to find Erika Overholt and confirm her identity. Unfortunately, our investigation put Erika and her son, Marcus, in danger.
I know there is chemistry between you two, how long did it take for you both to admit that to yourselves?
Erika: Chemistry? What chemistry. LOL.
James: I knew the moment I saw her I was in trouble.
Erika, tell us about the location where your story takes place.
Carling Lake is the most beautiful town in the world. It’s a community surrounded by nature – the Carling Lake Mountains and Carling Lake itself. And the people, everyone in town is like family.
We support each other and look out for each other. It’s a wonderful place to raise a child.
James, tell us more about your background:
James: As I mentioned, I left the military not long ago. I’ve been spending some time trying to figure out my next step.
Erika: He’s a brilliant artist. His hyper realistic drawings are amazing and several galleries have expressed interest in showing his work.
I’ll bet you both know things about your author that readers don’t know, care to share anything fun about her or her writing process?
Erika: It can be somewhat chaotic.
James: We didn’t always make it easy on K.D.
Erika: K.D. likes to keep to a schedule, writing every morning and often in the afternoon as well. Evenings are for the business side of writing and getting organized for the next day.
What’s up next for your author?
We are happy that she’ll be hanging around Carling Lake for a while. The fifth book in the series, Darkwater Disappearance, will be out in December 2022.
Great to have you both visit! Looking forward to catching up with your author for her next book!
