Today I welcome Lacey Wolfe, author of the novella Finding Home which I am featuring today. I will start today with an interview and come later today will post the review of Finding Home, a wonderful love story. The tagline in the banner really does describe it best, "A little dash of sweet with a whole lot of spice."
Thanks for joining us today Lacey.
Describe the area you write in.
Currently, it’s wherever I can find a quiet corner. But, we are closing on our new home soon and I plan to set up an office in my bedroom. We have a cut out with a big window that I think it will be the perfect place for me and inspiration as I watch the people in the neighborhood.
What's your favorite season?
Fall. I’m a GA girl so that means temperatures in the 70’s.
Describe your ideal reading space (no expense spared here).
A big comfy chair with a blanket and one of my kitties. I want to be somewhere that if I doze off, it really doesn’t matter.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I’d love to visit where the amish live as well as go west. I’ve never really left the south except to visit family in the north.
When did you decide you wanted to be a writer?
Its something I always wanted to do, but was too scared of the Big Six houses and all the traveling that might follow. My kids are young and I don’t want to be away from them. When I discovered the world of ebooks, I thought I’d give it a try. And so far, I’ve been very happy. I love writing and telling stories and I like that I can get stories to my readers quickly this way.
How would you describe yourself?
If you know me, I’m talkative. Otherwise I’m pretty quiet.
What's the first sentence in Finding Home?
The first one is a little boring. So here are the first three.
Welcome to Clearwater, Wyoming. We hope you enjoy your visit.

Tell us what is Finding Home about.
Finding Home is about a woman who basically needs her mom. She finds out she is pregnant and returns to her hometown to get the advice from her mom after her boyfriend dumps her. Only, I had to make it much more complicated. She doesn’t find her mom. She instead finds a half-naked man in the kitchen instead.
Dish, who’s your favorite character?
I loved Mark, the hero of the story. He is full of pain from his past and Julie changes everything in his life.
Mark is amazing, I really enjoyed how you wrote him. Sometimes the heroes of romance novels seem to take a backseat, but not Mark, he's strong, he's good-looking and he's just what every woman wants in a man.
How did you feel when you finished Finding Home?
I know I wrote this story, but this is one of those ones I love. I think this story is sweet, full of love, as well as pain. I cried some while I wrote it. And when it finished, I didn’t want it to end. Luckily, I have another sweet romance that will follow this one and its called Bare Necessities. Readers will see Julie and Mark again when Julie’s cousin Ava moves to Clearwater to open a lingerie shop.
Oh good - I didn't want it to end, so I'm glad I'll see more of Clearwater and Julie and Mark!
For all of us impatient readers, what is up next for you?
The third book Accidental Love, in my Hot Bods erotic series just released. And I have a BDSM novella, Bound By Pleasure releasing in August. Finding Home is a sweet romance and I believe Bare Necessities will be releasing in October.
Thanks Lacey for joining us today!
About Finding Home:
Julie Miller has returned to her home in Clearwater, Wyoming after discovering she is pregnant. All she wants is her mother to comfort her after her boyfriend told her to either have an abortion or leave. The only problem is, when she gets to her mother’s house, she doesn’t find her mom—she finds a half-naked man cooking breakfast.
Mark Thomas has moved to Clearwater to escape his past. He needs a fresh
start to try and forget the things that haunt him, and Clearwater seems like
the perfect place.
As if it isn’t bad enough that Julie doesn’t find her mother, a blizzard buries the town, and she is snowed in with Mark. Leaving them no choice, they begin a friendship while trying to resist the attraction they feel for one another.
Once the snow melts, Julie is free to leave. Will she choose to start a life in Clearwater or run back to New York? Meanwhile, Mark struggles to let go of his past and, if he does, is Julie his future?
