We're launching the Book Tour for HER KEEPER'S HEART by Krystal M. Anderson

On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Author Interview

What inspired you to write Her Keeper’s Heart?

The short answer: a trip to the Oregon coast. When my sister, daughter, and I visited Yaquina Head, I couldn't tear my attention away from the sight, sounds, and smells of it all. Bald eagles roosting in a bare tree; the sound of black rock clacking as the waves retreated from the beach; thick mist that clung to the lighthouse tower, creating an enchanted feeling; vicious pounding of the basalt in the water; driftwood littering the beach. It was all so magical I could see in my mind's eye exactly where a shipwrecked maiden might wash up on the shore for a keen lighthouse keeper to rescue. The experience spurred the beginning of this multi-author series and the three titles I've contributed, including Her Keeper's Heart.

What do you love the most about this story?

I love the quiet, peaceful nature of the heroine, Orissa. Maybe I feel a little closer to her than others I've written about because I chose her name from browsing my own family tree.

What challenged you about writing it?

Honestly, I struggled with the conflict in this story. I had written down to the second-to-last chapter before the epiphany hit. I hope readers find it satisfying. Nothing like cutting it close to deadlines.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

I'd say Charlotte Tucker, the principal keeper's wife. I wrote their second-chance story first and this book takes place several years later. She has a few kids, a garden, chickens, and a home to care for. I can definitely relate to all those things!

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I hope readers will have a vivid sense of what the Oregon coast feels like. I've never seen anything like it, and if you've never been, hopefully you'll feel like you had a small taste by reading my story. I'd also love to impart a deeply-set gratitude for lighthouse keepers and the isolation and sacrifice their job often demanded. I can only imagine what it was like to keep and care for a lighthouse that so many depended upon for safety with little-to-no recognition.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

My husband and I have four young kids (yes, I have to manage all my writing when they're asleep at night or I get interrupted seventy-nine times) and we love to go camping, ride four-wheelers, and take our dog on walks. I also have a horse that I attempt to slip away every chance I get to ride.

Certain the only way to achieve that goal is to send for a bride through the mail, Leonard sits back to wait for her arrival, dreaming of a life of wedded bliss soon to come. The young lady is soon on her way to Puffin Point but goes missing en route. Is there foul play involved or did she simply get cold feet? Will Leonard ever have a bride of his own?
