About the Author
Debbie Lynne Costello has enjoyed writing stories since she was eight years old. She raised her family and then embarked on her own career of writing the stories that had been begging to be told. She and her husband have four children and live in upstate South Carolina. She has worked in many capacities in her church and is currently the Children's Director. Debbie Lynne has shown and raised Shetland Sheepdogs for eighteen years and still enjoys litters now and then.

1. What top 5 books do you currently have on your TBR pile?

2. When you are not writing, what other "hats" do you wear?
I’m a grandmother who keeps her granddaughter 3 or more days and nights a week. I’m the children’s director at our church. I work with the young teen girls in a small group. And right now my hubby and I are building our home. I also raise sheltie puppies.
3. What type of schedule do you set up for yourself so you get writing projects completed on time?
I try to write whenever I’m not needed someplace else. It has gotten harder instead of easier! I thought after my kids graduated from HS it would be clear sailing, but I’m afraid that my schedules went out the window when they graduated. God is good and always allows me the time to do what I have to. Sometimes it is late at night, other times it is mid-day or even morning. Never in the evenings as that is when we are out working on the house.
4. What inspired the idea for The Perfect Bride?
It’s part of a novella set with the theme of best friends. I decided Philip, who is a minor character in Sword of Forgiveness needed a story. Philip is fun guy and I could just see him having so much fun with his best friend that he never realized he loved her.
5. What did you as a writer take away from writing The Perfect Bride?
I don’t want to say too much and give anything away, but my take away from The Perfect Bride—be careful about judging others. We don’t always know the motive or what a person has gone through. We may think one thing about them but we don’t know the heart. Only God knows that.
6. What is your current WIP? What can you share with us about this project?
My current WIP is Sword of Trust. It is book 2 in The Winds of Change Series. Sword of Trust has more history in it than book 1. My characters are living out the history. It was a time full of uncertainty. Approximately 10 years prior to my storyline there had been the Peasant Revolt, The Lord Appellants had removed King Richard and ran the country for a bit as well as had some of the kings friends put to death, Richard took back over the throne and never really forgot their sins against him. So there was a lot of unrest in the kingdom when my story takes place. There is false friends, treason, a whole lot of suspense, and lots of romance!
