Saddle Gap, a quiet little town in southwestern New Mexico, seems the perfect place for Sorrel Janes to start her life over. But within a few days, she finds herself entangled in two murders, the object of harassment, and the number one suspect in a murder. Will her past terrors destroy her future dreams? Amid the evolving conflicts, she resolves to reconstruct her new life and find happiness. Detective Chris Reed is equally resolved to solve the murders as well as Sorrels secrets. Neither of them suspects where the steps of this dance will lead, but they are too stubborn to sit this one out.

Author Interview Lonna Enox The Last Dance

If you could put yourself as a character in your book, who would you be?  That question is difficult, because Sorrel, my main character, has some of my personality but is much more assertive, confident, and courageous.  I tend to be more like Will, the journalism college student, who struggles with a career he loves even while he longs to fulfill the expectations of those he loves most.

Do you have another profession besides writing?  I have a Master’s Degree in English Literature.  When I began college, I planned a degree in journalism.  Along the way, I worked as a reporter for various amounts of time.  But teaching, which I found rewarding, fit well into having a family of my own.  I loved that career.  Now, it provides financial backing while I pursue this lifelong dream.

How long have you been writing?  My mother said I wrote my first book when I was 4.  She had started practical nursing training, my older brother had started school, and my dad kept my younger brother and me with him as he farmed to provide winter food for the cattle.  I wrote my books with a crayon on brown grocery bags and then read them to Ben.  They never knew when or how I learned to read or write.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?  Ideas just arrive.  My brain has always been a “what if”.  I see something or someone and I wonder, “What if ?”  The information comes from research.  I go to the area where I want my books to be set and my husband Ron and I spend time there, walking, taking photos, talking to people, etc.

Do you ever get writer’s block?  I seldom get writer’s block. What helps you overcome it?  Sometimes I write a letter to someone to get my mind flowing.  Other times, I will make a journal entry, something often that has no relation to anything in my book.  When I have finished it, I realize that I have either solved a problem for a character…or raised a question.

What is your next project?  I am almost finished with the fourth book in my Sorrel Janes series.
