Would you call yourself a born writer?  No. I’m a storyteller.

What was your inspiration for Save Him? I needed a sci-fi/military story to fill my portfolio, and Save Him came to me.

How long did it take you to complete the novel? About six months. As for the rewrite, I lost count of the years.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.  I’m a disciplined writer. I write three to four hours a day, six days a week.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book? Just about everything.

What do you love most about being an author? Telling a story.

Did you go with a traditional publisher, small press, or did you self publish? What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?  I self published. I was under the impression that traditional publishers don’t take on new clients these days. Do they?

About the Book


Rydel Scott, a brilliant scientist working at a secret military lab, accidentally discovers a form of time travel while working on a project designed to save wounded soldiers in the field. Rydel’s sister, a woman of faith, tells Rydel on her deathbed that she has received a message from God. The message—save Jesus Christ from the cross.

And Rydel Scott travels back in time to do just that.

It is believed even the smallest change to the past can cause catastrophic repercussions for future generations. An elite military unit is sent back in time to hunt Rydel down before he can alter history and possibly kill millions in the process.

The unit and its commanding officers, Colonel John Adams and Unit Commander Ray Catlin, become divided. Catlin, a devout Catholic, claims he witnessed a miracle by Jesus upon arrival in Jerusalem and fervently believes in Rydel’s mission. Adams hasn’t believed in God since he was a boy and his only concern is the safety of the people in the present. They must now choose between the fate of Christ and the fate of present-day mankind.

They must decide if they will Save Him.

Would you call yourself a born writer?

I would call myself a born reader. I’ve read books my entire life and they have brought me great pleasure. I always wanted to write and only with the advent of online self-publishing engines has allowed me to fulfil my dream of writing. I didn’t consider myself an author until I started winning awards and recognition. I think I was surprised to be included in this category.

What was your inspiration for “The Devil and Dayna Dalton: The Bulwark Anthology (Book 9)?”

I wrote Bulwark, the first book in the Bulwark anthology, for a group of authors who never wrote any other books in the series. Later, I was approached by a new group of authors who asked if they could use Bulwark in a new anthology. I agreed and the series was born. I wrote this latest book because in the original I felt I had given Dayna Dalton a raw deal. When I read the reviews, I realized readers saw her as cunning and shallow. It made me think about what motivates people’s behavior. Sometimes, if you understand the components of a person’s life, you can sympathize with their actions. “The Devil and Dayna Dalton” is about a woman on fire internally, misunderstood, and under appreciated.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

I wrote this story in three days.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.

I am so disciplined, it’s painful. I work full time as the CEO of a global corporation. Writing is something I do when I need to decompress in the evenings. I’m up at six am, at meetings, in the office by 7 am. My assistant works with me all day on the social media that comes from promoting close to one hundred books of assorted authors and genres. Aside from my corporate job, I manage my son, author Michael Okon’s writing career. I leave work in the afternoon, watch reality TV, or do yoga and after I read with my grandchildren on FaceTime, only then do I begin to write. At 6 am the cycle starts again.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book?

The story just flowed. Once I wrote the first line I pretty much didn’t stop until Dayna finished telling me her story. The biggest challenge is always afterwards, finding the appropriate cover, formatting and marketing the book. The story is the easiest part.

What do you love most about being an author?

I am connecting with a diverse and fascinating audience. I love hearing reader’s take-away from my stories. The fact that I’ve entertained, started a conversation, shifted a perception, or even brought comfort is the most rewarding experience.

Did you go with a traditional publisher, small press, or did you self publish? What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?

I have self-published over fifty books. Currently, I am publishing my children’s line with a small press under the name, Carole P. Roman. My children’s books are both fiction and non-fiction. I also self-published a self-help book about the marketing and promotion of books. Finally, as Brit Lunden, I self-publish my adult fiction.

About the Book

Dana’s been in love with Clay Finnes since she was a teenager. Her unrequited love for Sheriff Finnes leaves her empty. He’s happily married and unavailable. Instead, Dayna finds herself stuck in the revolving door of bad relationships. But this is Bulwark, Georgia, a town where strange things are always happening.
