One Word Interview with Donna K. Weaver

Today's One Word Interview features clean romance author, Donna K. Weaver, whose romance/adventure on the high seas novel, A Change of Plans was released recently. Welcome to the writing chair, Donna!

 Stranded on a desert island. What's your must-have item? 

Aw. That's sweet. :)

Which one of your characters is most like you? 
None. All.

Oh, I can relate! They are all like us in some ways, and yet not at all.

If you could take a cruise anywhere in the world, where would it be? 

Sure! I mean, why choose just one place, right? (Can I come with you?)

What historical figure would you most like to have lunch with? 
Helen Keller (nonreligious)  

Ooo, Interesting choice. I really admire her. 

We are holding a banquet in honor of your awesomeness. What are we
serving for dessert?

Yum. Just, yum. That is all.

Thanks so much, Donna!

A Change of Plans: When Lyn sets off on her supposedly uncomplicated and unromantic cruise, she never dreams it will include pirates. All the 25-year-old, Colorado high school teacher wants to do is forget that her dead fiancé was a cheating scumbag. Lyn plans a vacation diversion; fate provides Braedon, an intriguing surgeon. She finds herself drawn to him: his gentle humor, his love of music, and even his willingness to let her take him down during morning karate practices. Against the backdrop of the ship's make-believe world and temporary friendships, her emotions come alive.

However, fear is an emotion, too. Unaware of the sensitive waters he's navigating, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship--on the very anniversary Lyn is on the cruise to forget. Lyn's painful memories are too powerful, and she runs from Braedon and what he has to offer.

Their confusing relationship is bad enough, but when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise's snorkeling excursions in American Samoa things get worse. Paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped and Lyn's fear of a fairytale turns grim. Now she must fight alongside the man she rejected, first for their freedom and then against storms, sharks, and shipwreck. Get the audiobook!

Donna K. Weaver has always loved reading and creating stories, thus she’s been ever entertained. A Navy brat and U.S. Army veteran, she’s lived in many U.S. states as well as South Korea, the Philippines, and Germany. An avid cruiser, she’s sailed the Pacific four times. When she retired from Shorei Kempo Karate with a black belt, she decided it was time to put her imaginary friends and places on paper. She lives in Utah with her husband. They have six children and eight grandchildren.
