About the Author
Basham is an award-winning author who writes historical and contemporary romance novels with grace, humor, and culture clashes. She’s a Blue Ridge Mountain native and an anglophile who enjoys combining her two loves to create memorable stories of hope.
1. If you could travel anywhere in the world for book research (expense covered for you by an anonymous donor), where would you go and why?
I think everyone is going to know my answer to this - TOP CHOICE - UK! Pretty much anywhere in the UK. I'd love to visit northern Scotland and Ireland. (Spain is on my wishlist too ;-)
2. What genre(s) do you write? Why do you choose to write in this genre?
I write both historical and contemporary romance - Romance is my FAVORITE genre, so no matter where I place the story, timewise, I enjoy getting to sprinkle (or lather) romance throughout. This answer might sound paltry, but stories come to me in different time periods in my mind, so that's another reason why I write in both historical and contemporary settings. I love both - and it means I can travel to different eras as well as different places :-) Ah, the fashion!!
3. What top 5 books are currently on your TBR pile?
1)The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz
2) Love in Three Quarter Time by Rachel McMillan
3) The Impossible Saints by Clarissa Harwood
4) A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White
5) Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Poulitano
4. What inspired your idea for Façade?
It's a really funny story, actually. My agent, at the time, was working on a proposal for several authors to write a novella collection that spanned generations in the same family. I'd told her I'd write the WW1 era novella (my era) but on the proposal she'd mistakenly put WW2. So...well, I started writing a WW2 novella. In starting the research, I knew I wanted something with an espionage theme because I was a die-hard Agent Carter fan at the time (and still am!! #PeggyCarterisawesome)
5. What do you want readers to take away from reading Façade?
That our ultimate value is in God - regardless of how others may perceive us.
6. What is your current WIP? What can you tell us about this project?
Well, I just finished my upcoming novel for Barbour entitled My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge. Oh my goodness, it's such a fun story and a little new for me because the romance is a lovely, slow, crock-pot kind of development between two new friends. It's set in 1918 Appalachia and gives off a little bit of a Catherine Marshall Christy vibe.
