Maxine Douglas, Road Angel

AUTHOR: Maxine Douglas
BOOK TITLE: Road Angel
PUBLISHER: MuseItUp Publishing

Tell me a little about your book.
Road Angel is a cross between It’s A Wonderful Life and Christmas Carol, although I think it’s more like Christmas Carol.  Two lives hang in the balance of life, death, and desire…can Cyn convince Lee life is worth living?

What gave you the idea for this particular story?
My husband is a truck driver and we are originally from Wisconsin. The idea came after sitting many nights during the winter waiting for him to get home safely during the winter months traveling from PA to Wisconsin.

How long before December did you submit to your publisher?
I submitted RA about three months before hand.

How and why did you choose this publisher?
I totally love working with Lea and her staff at MuseItUp. I’ve worked with Lea on a couple of previous projects before she started MIU.

What about your book makes it special?
I think the fact that the hero is a truck driver.

What does Christmas and/or winter mean to you?
Christmas is a time to spend with family and friends; to celebrate life, the year’s blessings, and the beginning of a new year.

What is your favorite Christmas or winter memory?
OMG … I have 58 years worth of them!  Too many to choose from.  Although I do remember building great snow forts and having snowball fights with the neighborhood kids no matter how cold and snowy it was out there.

Truck driver Lee Thomas believes his life is over after the ghost of his wife who died three years ago steps in front of him and jack-knives his truck on a snowy Wisconsin road on his way home.

Cyn Bedford, an angel, must convince him to fight for his life. She’s broken an angel rule and has fallen in love with her charge.

Will Cyn truly be Lee’s Road Angel for life?
