Falling in Love with a Hero

Falling in Love with a Hero


Thunder on the Mountain

When I begin writing a book, I find someone whose looks I like and keep their photo front-and-center as I get familiar with the character. This is a photo of Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, and he looks just like I imagine my current hero to look.

In my third book of the Thunder on the Mountain Series, Thunder Storm, there was a young man that I completely fell in love with. I was so enamored with the character of the adolescent Runner Jeffries, son of Miles and Jeni Jeffries, that I wanted him to have his own book.

He’s all grown up now and is a major league baseball player, and if I thought I loved him as a kid, I am totally in love with him now that he’s an adult. And Charlotte Rose, daughter of Jack and Callie (Thunder Snow) (she first showed up in Thunder Struck), is his love interest. She loved him when she was four, and she’s still in love with him, but now it’s a different kind of love – all mature and grown up and stuff ;).

I can’t wait to tell you their story, which I project will be available in August of 2017. Be sure to sign up on the right side of this post and I’ll let you know when their story is ready to be shared.

Historical Romance or Contemporary Romance?

Mimi Foster Willow's SecretWhen I first started writing, I was excited to be part of the Contemporary Romance genre. After THUNDER STRUCK was published, I was totally enamoured with the character of Willow that Jordan and Brandan discovered from the journals they found during their remodel of the Victorian home Jordan inherited. After writing another Contemporary Romance novel (THUNDER STORM), I still wanted to tell the story of Willow, so I built her novel from the framework of what we’d learned from her descendants.

But then I found I couldn’t really chronicle her life without telling the story of her parents, Edward and Jordan Stratton. Rather than do an entire novel on them, I wrote a quick and tender novella entitled JORDAN’S GIFT, which takes place in the early 1890s, much of which sets the stage to tell Willow’s tale.

I am close to being done with WILLOW’S SECRET, which will be in the time period between 1910 and 1915. What I’ve discovered in this historical journey is that it’s fun to see people learn about things we take for granted – cars, electricity, indoor plumbing, telephones. So I’ve had a good time with it. Can’t wait to introduce you to Willow and Charles. COMING SOON . . .
