Trapped by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen Interview and Giveaway at Linda Weaver Clarke's Blog
In addition to the Summer Treasure Hunt: "Dig for Clues and Win!" Contest Linda Weaver Clarke is running through the month of June, she is continuing her weekly book giveaways.
You have until June 21st to enter her latest giveaway for a copy of Trapped by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen.
"Trapped is about a sheltered Florida girl who wakens to find a thief in her mother’s home. After she escapes, she discovers he not only stole two paintings, but he also left behind shrines dedicated to her and a mysterious note, a "trap," which eventually leads her and the man she loves to a mafia-like world within the Austrian Alps."
“Family secrets, magic, and a fascinating new setting. Well written and cleverly done, Trapped is a great example of what makes suspense novels so engaging.”
--Josi S. Kilpack
"Just like its title, Trapped, by Ronda Hinrichsen, snatched up my attention with its first sentence. Hinrichsen carefully presents absorbing characters, heart-tugging romance and mystical-laden riddles in a way that kept me turning pages way past bedtime."
Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen's numerous magazine and internet writing credits include fiction and nonfiction published by The Friend, New Era, Ensign, Guideposts for Kids, Class Act, and yourLDSneighborhood.com. She also enjoys teaching writing and speaking in various venues.
Ronda first knew she wanted to be a writer when she was in the 6th grade. Her English teacher had been reading S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders to the class, and when she reached the section where Johnny urged Ponyboy to stay “gold,” Ronda realized she wanted to write "golden” words just as Hinton had. More than that, she wanted those words to encourage the "golden" in others. That remains one of her goals.
