I am delighted to welcome Rolynn Anderson back to my blog today!
JAN SOLVANG, my heroine in SWOON, keeps a suitcase packed. It’s tucked in the back of her closet and she’s never told anyone it’s there. Nor does she explain to a soul that she’s got four complete sets of clothing in the bag along with shoes, cosmetics, money and a passport. Jan won’t let herself think about why she’s always primed for a trip in FADEOUT, the first novel in the Funeral Planner Suspense Series, but in SWOON, she’s forced to deal with her secret.
Now, I’m an Army brat and I spent the first eighteen years of my life moving from country to country, house to house and school to school. Germany, Japan and Korea were our foreign stations; Maryland, Wisconsin, Georgia and Minnesota, our USA posts. Since my family had to move every two or three years, we became pros at packing, but I was always thrilled to empty boxes and settle in to each new home.
Why did I give my heroine a secret suitcase disorder when I have the opposite yearning? Maybe because I moved so much, in my mind, I made myself ready to move…I was all ‘packed’, mentally, even though the suitcase was empty.
Truly, I didn’t think about my connection to my heroine until I wrote this post. How about you? Do your heroines or heroes share your flaws or the flaws of friends or relatives?
“Don’t miss SWOON by Rolynn Anderson! If you like an interesting cast of characters, a heavy dose of mystery and a lot of fabulous surprises, you’ll be happily turning pages late into the night.ˮ

Her dead clients won’t rest in peace.
When the dead tell tales, Jan Solvang’s first reaction is to RUN! But then she gets caught up in their mysteries.
Jan’s a boutique funeral planner, new to risk, hired to bury a missing woman and memorialize an infamous man. Yet when she digs for clues to write their eulogies, she disturbs family secrets and unmasks killers.
Roman Keller, hard-driving documentary writer, is in complete control of his life and his stories, until he falls for Jan, a woman who trusts her dog, her faint-dreams, and her instincts more than she trusts him.
Can they make the sacrifices necessary to cement their relationship or will the mayhem caused by the dead ruin their second chance at love?
