Cathy Lamb's magical pixie dust...plus a book giveaway

We're pleased to have Cathy Lamb here today to celebrate the recent publication of her latest novel, The Man She Married. She's helping us kick off our Disney and Fairy Tales theme month by telling us which Disney or Fairy Tale character is most like her. Cathy also has one print copy of The Man She Married to give away!

Cathy Lamb is the author of No Place I'd Rather Be, My Very Best Friend, The Language of Sisters, Such a Pretty Face, and many more compelling novels. She started her career by freelance writing about 200 articles on homes, home décor, people and fashion for a local newspaper.

Cathy suffers from, "I Would Rather Play Than Work Disease" which prevents her from getting much work done unless she has a threatening deadline. She likes to hang with family and friends, walk, eat chocolate, camp, travel, and is slightly obsessive about the types of books she reads. She also likes to be left alone a lot so she can hear all the odd characters in her head talk to each other and then transfer that oddness to paper. The characters usually don't start to talk until 10:00 at night, however, so she is often up 'til 2:00 in the morning with them. That is her excuse for being cranky.

She adores her children and husband, except when he refuses to take his dirty shoes off and walks on the carpet. She will ski because her children insist, but she secretly doesn't like it at all. Too cold and she falls all the time.

She is currently working on her next book and isn't sleeping much. (Bio adapted from Amazon.)

Synopsis:
When Natalie Shelton thinks back to how things were before the car accident, she remembers a great marriage. She and her husband, Zack, seem as strong and dependable together as the houses he builds. They live in Portland, Oregon, and Natalie is co-owner of a successful accounting firm. They’re happy, she’s almost sure of it.

Yet as Natalie lies trapped in a coma, unable to communicate though aware of everything around her, she realizes that her husband is hiding something. Zack has always been reticent about his past, which she attributed to an unhappy childhood. Now the strange calls he’s receiving, the apologies when he thinks she can’t hear him, and her fragmented memories from the morning of the accident suggest a deeper secret.

When she finally awakens, Natalie is determined to find out the truth. Sorting through clues as her brain heals, she realizes she has a rare opportunity—to reexamine the life she’s made and the man she’s made it with. But as answers come to light, she faces surprising, heartrending decisions, as well as a danger that could upend her world once again, as Zack’s past finally catches up with them...

The Disney character who most reminds me of myself is…Tinkerbell.

She’s imperfect and never tries to be perfect.

She’s snappish sometimes.

She’s loyal.

She’s a fighter. She’s sometimes annoying.

I don’t try to be perfect, ever. I can get snappy. I am loyal to my beloved family and friends. I’m a fighter when things in life go very badly. I’m sure I can be annoying.

And can I add one more thing? I wish I could fly like Tinkerbell.

If a genie popped out of a bottle and told me I had one wish and it had to be a purely selfish wish, I’d be flying within the hour!

Thanks to Cathy for visiting with us and sharing her book with our readers.
