Ginger Simpson

Harlee Wagner didn’t expect to fall in the well when drawing water, and she certainly never expected to be rescued only to find her entire family gone. Logan Carruthers, her handsome hero, insists she rest up before she starts searching and then leads her on a trail consisting of hints and guesses. Will she find her family, or will she discover love? There’s something about his gorgeous blue eyes and broad shoulders that makes her heart flutter.

“A lot is packed into this short book; the story moves along well and the plot kept me interested. I found it enjoyable and recommend this for a lazy day read to anyone to anyone that enjoys a clean mystery romance.” – Birdlady

“I must say that Gingers Simpson’s writing is superb. Harlee’s character is funny and her relationship with Logan’s mother comes alive for me. I have read many of Ginger Simpson’s works and I can’t believe how much she has improved her writing. I am willing to bet that if she got a decent agent she could be the next Danielle Steel.” – Carol Langstroth

“This is a fast-paced mystery romance that will keep you intrigued from beginning until almost the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and would highly recommend it.” – Miskagirl

Cold Coffee Review: Homesteading in the Oklahoma Panhandle in 1894 is getting harder every day, “Hot winds drove a herd of tumbleweeds across endless acres of sod, broken and dried by the late July sun. The devastating drought in Oklahoma continued, leaving everything parched or dying.”

A small cast of well-developed characters bring the story to life as Miss Harlee Wagner accidentally falls into the family well while gathering a bucket of water. Days later and near death, was this stunning man a figment of her imagination, or was he, her long awaited hero?

Fast-pace action, adventure, mystery and romance keeps the reader turning the pages seeking answers to this most unusual mystery. I quote a passage from the book to show Ginger Simpson’s writing style and the questions Harlee has on her mind. “Harlee took in the scenery again, but her mind wandered. Homesteads much like the one Pa had staked claim to, sat back from the trail, gardens withered, heat waves spiraling upward, and an occasional dust devil swirling in the distance. How did those twisting demons develop when the ground had turned stone-like from the absence of moisture? Could humidity cause enough dampness? Although the area hadn’t had rain for some time, some days were filled with ‘heat you could wear’, as Logan said. Today was one of those days. Harlee’s top clung to her like a second skin; perspiration beaded her forehead and dampened her hair. How she wished she had her old straw hat, but that had disappeared along with her family.”

I, Theodocia McLean, endorse Lost In His Eyes by Ginger Simpson as a warm, realistic, 1800 period romance published by Books We Love. Thirty plus books have given Ginger Simpson the notoriety that she has earned as a romance author. I invite you to read (just to name a few); Lost In His Eyes, Ages of Love, Arizona Sky, Betrayed, Dancing Fawn, Destiny’s Bride, Discovery, Ellie’s Legacy, First Degree Innocence, Hattie’s Heroes, Sarah’s Heart and Passion, Shortcomings, Time Tantrums and Yellow Moon. I was given this book. This review was completed on October 25, 2015.

**************************

Unexplained visions, murder and mayhem…that’s what Michelle’s life has come to, and she desperately wants out of her detective position to be behind her own desk, being the author she’s forced to conceal behind a pseudonym. Even though the fodder for her first book came from past cases, if she can just write her break-through novel under her real name, she’ll leave the force, switch her genre to romance, and pursue the relationship she wants with her hunky partner. His desire is evident, but fraternization on the job is forbidden, and she can’t gamble with the income she needs. Still, maybe those horrible visions seen through the killer’s eyes will go away for good if she’s no longer part of the local police department.

Genre: Romance (Suspense)

He’s on his way to join a gang of bank robbers and he has no time to spare.

Will the promise of Odessa’s sweet lips lure Zach from the secret mission that has his gut twisted into a knot? His father’s ranch isn’t the only thing at stake—now it’s his heart.

Review

I think Ginger Simpson lived in the Wild West in another life. She captures the era so well you can smell and taste it in this story of a young woman lost in the arid desert…

The characters are as realistic as the setting she describes. Both the hero and heroine are loveable, faulted, and feisty. The prose is free and easy, allowing the reader to fall into the story without struggle.

“Based on the true story of the author’s sister, this novel builds tension as it goes. It grips the reader and throws them into a whirlwind of emotion from anger to joy and everything in between. It is a powerful book of vulnerability and strength, family loyalty versus true love. A must read for every woman.” ~ Mirella Patzer, Historical Author

“I found this to be an engaging story and the characters very believable. In this high tech age we need a reminder that not everybody is good and decent and we need to have our guard up in the faceless world of the internet.” ~ Carol Langstroth, Mind Fog Reviews

Reviews:

Very good book that touches on a part of history that was left out of the history books at school.

A nice change of pace to drop back into an American Historical where the Indian is the good guy. I enjoyed the book and found the historical facts were in line with what I’ve read in other books, both factual history and historical fiction. Well researched and sensitively written.

Seven stories in one novel; each one with it’s own plot and lead character: a stewardess who discovers her judgment may be a little flawed, an older divorcee who finds something far more interesting than sandals at a shoe clearance, a bride-to-be thinking she has a valid reason to call off her wedding, a pudgy ex-wife with a fear that a medical apparatus will make her look like Jacques Cousteau, a newcomer to Florida expecting fair weather and experiencing her first hurricane, but not alone or scared, a daughter in mourning, pursuing the meaning of three tarnished bars held together by a black ribbon, and a doctor who discovers something totally unrelated to medicine that heals a heart problem.

“Throughout these stories, facets of each person’s character are revealed, layer by layer, often with a punch of the Ginger Simpson sense of humor. Delicious! I can think of no better way to spend an evening or lazy afternoon than wrapped in the comfort of her words.” ~ H. Haven

Cold Coffee Press Spotlight Interview With Author Ginger Simpson

Ginger Simpson has been writing since 2000 and has produced many fine reads. She’s a pantser who writes when her characters speak, and plotting is as foreign to her as speaking another language. She retired from the University of California, Davis after 24 years, and moved to Tennessee to be caretaker to her autistic grandson. Time flies. That was in 2003/2004 and now Spencer is 13. She’s gone from listening to Thomas the Train in the background to being able to enjoy whatever type of music she likes.

She’s currently working on another “Sarah” story but swears this one is her swan song. At 70, she wants to spend whatever time God grants her doing fun things with her husband, and not feeling the stress of being an author. Gone are the days of easily obtainable reviews and low overhead. Competition for everything has grown due to self-publishing, and those who think they are authors but need to go through the editing process for years to learn they truly aren’t. What used to be so easy has become more of a chore.

Interview:

What makes you proud to be a writer from TN, USA? I’m proud to be an author just based on accomplishments. I never knew I could achieve. Here in TN, people kind of give you a blank stare when you announce your profession. I don’t imagine too many people my age find time to read because it seems most grandparents are too busy raising their grandchildren…at least that is the case in the area where I live. I’ve always been a people person, but in all the years, I’ve lived here, this has been the most difficult place to make new friends. I still haven’t figured out why most folks expect free copies. Don’t they realize how many hours an author toils over each story?

What or who inspired you to become a writer? I’ve always been an avid reader. I love authors who sweep me away to another time and place and put me in their character’s shoes. When I was between Cassie Edward’s captivating stories, and had read everything western by Amanda Baker, I decided to try my own hand at writing, and voila…that was the beginning of an exciting new decade for me.

When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published? In 2000, I wrote my debut novel, Prairie Peace, now re-released as Destiny’s Bride. I knew I wasn’t going to look for an agent (didn’t need the added stress), so I researched small publishing and found Wings E Press. I submitted the story, not expecting acceptance, but lo and behold, I got a wonderful letter saying I TOLD a beautiful story, but now needed to learn to SHOW it to the reader. That’s what I mean about self-pubbed, people who believe they can step into the author’s arena without learning the ropes. I learned tons from my first editor, and I have continued learning with each submission. Unless you go through the appropriate channels, you’re clueless to the rules of writing that apply to authors.

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? I grew up in a house of western lovers. There was always a John Wayne film on TV and when the radio played, it was Johnny Cash singing. We spent many nights watching The Grand Ol’ Opry, and anything western on TV. Loving the genre set in the old west era seems only logical, and I love it.

Do you come up with your title before or after you write the manuscript? Strange as it seems…my stories come with titles and characters already named when the hero or hero pops into my head. It’s only been on the re-releases of my books that I have to come up with new titles, and that’s really hard.

Please introduce your genre and why you prefer to write in that genre? I’ve written cross genres just to prove to myself that I can, but I always migrate back to Western Historical Romance. I write sweet romance with a tad of sexuality because I’m that kind of person. I prefer to leave the grinds, thrusts and groans to the reader’s imagination. I wrote only one Erotica, and that was the most difficult book ever. You either have to possess a really active imagination or be pro-active in the bedroom…neither apply to me.

What was your inspiration, spark or light bulb moment that inspired you to write the book that you are seeking promotion for? I’m always inspired when a new character shows up with an idea for a story. I’m driven by the need to find out how the journey ends.

What has been your most rewarding experience with your writing process? The appreciation shown by my peers and a few nominations for best reads. I’ve never won an actual award because I haven’t taken the time to enter any writing contests, but there have been a few times when people have nominated me, and that’s a wonderful feeling. I was so shocked when Love Romances announced one of my books as a 2009 best Western Read.

What has been your most rewarding experience in your publishing journey? Finding publishers who believe in me and have faith in my ability to succeed. I’ve been very lucky to have each publisher see the value in my stories and by far the most rewarding experience for any author after getting a nod of acceptance is holding that new book in your hand for the first time.

What one positive piece of advice would you give to other authors? Be yourself, and don’t ever let anyone steal your voice.

Who is your favorite author and why? Laura Ingalls Wilder has an always will be my favorite. I’ve read every “Little House” story a hundred times, and she was the true inspiration for my writing. I’m always flattered if someone compares me to her.

Is there anything else that you would like to share with us? I’ve been doing this for so many years, I doubt there’s anything most don’t know about me. My life has been an open book.
