Their friendship can survive almost anything…

For two best friends, marriage could be their greatest test yet…

Trinity Davis must not have heard firefighter Omar Young correctly. Did her handsome widowed best friend just suggest they get married? Omar needs a mom for his adorable little girls, and it’ll fix Trinity’s financial woes. But saying “I do” isn’t just business. Especially when the only vow they’re in danger of breaking is their promise to not fall in love…

AN INTERVIEW WITH TONI

When did you first know you wanted to be an author? 

I really knew after I finished my bachelor’s degree. I had just really committed to living out my faith and I wanted to connect that with my passion for writing.

When you are not writing, what other hats do you wear? What do you do for fun?

I wear the hat of wife and mom and since my kids are distance learning due to the pandemic, I sometimes wear the hat of tutor. I like to read in my spare time, play video games with my kids (unless it’s something boring like Minecraft ;), and that’s pretty much it. I’m a simple person.

What is your favorite genre to read? What about that genre draws you?

I love to read contemporary romance especially if it’s a rom com. I just love to see how two people come together and the ups and downs they go through. It makes the helpless romantic in me very happy.

What historical figure do you admire and why?

Other than Jesus? That’s a great question. There are so many historical figures to admire but if I picked one from the Bible, it would be Ruth. Her strength and determination in the face of adversity amazes me.

Ruth is a favorite of mine as well. Which character did you enjoy writing most?

Omar! I liked helping him realize the depths of his feels for Trinity. There were some fun moments.

As a former K-12 school librarian I have to ask – what is your favorite children’s book?

Hmm, Tikki Tikki Tembo is so fun to read, but I probably had the most fun reading the Elephant & Piggie series to my boys.

I love Tikki Tikki Tembo.  I regularly read it during story time when I was a librarian. What advice would you give to a child or teen who wants to be a writer?

Keep reading and keep writing. When you read, you learn what you like about the story and what you don’t. You’ll learn the structure of story writing. When you write, you learn how you naturally do the process of writing and what areas you need to improve on.
