Getting to know Indie Author Lisa Flickinger

I have yet another Indie Author guest that might be new to you. Keep reading to get to know Lisa Flickinger.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and the first time someone complemented you on something you had written?

I live and write along the banks of a river shadowed by the Rocky Mountains. I love walking in the woods, camping, and over the last couple of years, fishing. I remember my fourth grade teacher being impressed with a poem I’d written and sharing it with the class. From that time on, I considered myself a bit of a poet even though I don’t write poetry.


What can a reader expect when they pick up a book written by you?

According to my readers, you can expect a lot of realistic adventure and surprises! You will also find heartwarming characters who struggle with their faith. Elements of humor also creep into my characters personalities and surprise me, too.


What genre do your write and are there any unique challenges to this genre? If so, how have you overcome them?

I write historical fiction, and obviously the biggest challenge is not living during the time frame. I immerse myself in the time period through diaries, novels, biographies, and movies. Sometimes I find it hard to immerge from their world and return to my own quickly. It’s a challenge I’m still trying to overcome.


What were some of your favorite books as a child?

I loved the Nancy Drew series, although I pretty much read my way through the local library. My favorite book as a small child was the Disney Uncle Remus Stories. My dad would do all the different voices and we loved it.


How do you reward yourself once your book is published?

When a book is finished, my husband and I go out for dinner to our favorite steak house. I breathe a big sigh of relief, although by now I know it only means my focus changes to marketing.


With Christmas around the corner, can you tell us the most memorable gift you received growing up?

The most memorable gift would probably be keys which were hidden among the needles and ornaments on our spruce tree Christmas morning. They went to a motorized trike in the front driveway. We kids were so excited!


Do you have any new books coming out in 2018?

I plan to release the first novel in a series about logging camps in the late eighteen hundreds. In this novel a young women, who helps out in the kitchen, struggles with the loss of her child while our hero learns to set aside the rough life he’s known in the camp and put his full trust in the Lord.

Missouri mules were the best. Alda grew to love the creatures working side by side with her pa on their farm along the banks of the Missouri River. He would be hopping mad when he realized his wife and daughter colluded behind his back to sell a pack string. It wouldn’t matter that they were trying to save the farm.

Alda struck out on her own to drive the team over fifteen hundred miles. By day three, her lead mule Bessie refused to take one more step. It was a good thing the handsome cowboy Cord stopped by to lend a hand or Alda might still be sitting in the dust.


Now, Alda needed the man to move on so she could continue her journey. Judging by the spark in Cord’s eye … it just might take some convincing.
