Guest Author: Lorraine Nelson

Today, please welcome my good friend Lorraine Nelson to the blog, where she'll be talking about her newest book in the Thunder Creek Ranch Series.

AR: Tell me a bit about this book. What is it about?

 LN: Cameron’s Quest is a continuation of the Thunder Creek Ranch saga. Cameron Manning is the second oldest living Manning, and in searching for a lost love, Lacey Kerrigan, he encounters quite a surprise. When Lacey comes to visit, a series of incidents happen that make Cam the main suspect in a murder investigation.

You’ll have to read it for yourself to find out the rest. J

AR: Lost love? Murder? Adding this to my to read list! What was your favorite part about writing this story?

LN: This series is near and dear to me as my love of family shines through. I love being able to visit with previous characters and update readers on the happenings in their lives.

AR: Where did you get the idea for this book?

LN: I’m not totally sure. I knew his story had to be told and when I sat down to write, it was there. He’s been waiting a long time. J

AR: What genres do you prefer to write in?

LN: I love contemporary romance and romantic suspense.

AR: What's next for you? Are you working on anything new? Tell me about it. 
LN: Yes, I’m already working on Michael’s Dilemma, Book 6 in this series, and hope to have it submitted soon.

I’m also working on The Hudson Ranch series to be published later this spring, hopefully. My sister is a portrait artist and is drawing the covers. She also works full-time, so it’s a slow process. She’s quite the perfectionist when it comes to detail. And of course, I have to finish writing them. J

In addition, I have a requested full with Kensington Books and Harlequin Escape.


Thunder Creek Ranch Series, Book 5

Cameron Manning has never forgotten his first love. Of Irish descent, he met red-haired, fiery tempered Lacey Kerrigan in England, but her family returns to Ireland unexpectedly and they haven’t had any means of contact. When he finds her, he receives the surprise of his life.

Lacey is thrilled to see Cameron but is afraid of being hurt again. She keeps her distance and rebuffs his advances while he’s in Ireland, certain that a long distance affair will never work. But when tickets arrive for her to visit his home in Canada, she realizes his love is true and is willing to give them a second chance.

Fate intervenes when they find a murdered man on Cameron’s back deck. All evidence points to Cameron as the killer. Can their reawakened love survive the stress of a murder investigation? Or will it be the catalyst that drives them apart forever?



Lorraine Nelson is a multi-published author who lives in rural New Brunswick, on the east coast of Canada. Always a bookworm, she’s read many novels of romance and mystery over the years, finally deciding to put her pen to work at writing one.

“To write romance and romantic suspense is my dream come true, although my mom says I was born with an avid imagination and pencil in hand, crafting stories from an early age. Now my children have grown and have lives of their own, I have time to indulge my passion for writing.”

Lorraine lives alone with an independent yet affectionate tomcat, enjoys spending time with her three sons and six grandchildren. When not at the computer, you can find her spending time with family, gardening, baking and, of course, reading.
