This year the Grand Canyon National Park will celebrate its centennial anniversary, and award-winning author Regina Scott is honoring this momentous occasion with the release of A Distance to Grand, book one in the American Wonders Collection. In this captivating novel, Scott invites readers to experience both romance and intrigue in the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon.
When her father dies, Meg Pero is determined to take over his profession. Her first task is to fulfill his last contract with the Army, which entails joining a survey crew exploring the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately, women photographers are rare and the head of the expedition is none other than the man she once refused to marry, Captain Ben Coleridge. Undeterred by this fact, Meg presses on to regain the life she loved and continue her father’s legacy.
Captain Ben Coleridge is eager to begin his new assignment, but there is much more at stake than surveying the land. He is following the route of his missing father in an attempt to find out what happened to him. As danger lurks from both nature and man, Meg and Ben must work together to accomplish their goals, safeguard the expedition, and fulfill the Army’s commission. Can they find a way to the end of the trail and to the love they thought they left behind?
Author Spotlight with Regina Scott
What is a Bible verse that inspires you to keep on writing?
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 He’ll make your writing straight too.
Describe the moment that you knew you were born to write.
I loved reading as a child, from the moment my mother first read to me through when I could read stories for myself. When I realized “someone” wrote these wonderful stories, created these worlds, I knew I wanted to be a writer and share stories with others.
What’s your strategy for coping with bad reviews?
Don’t read them. 😊 Seriously, I do try to avoid reading any of my reviews. Good ones may leave me smiling for hours, but bad ones stay with me for weeks, and I start questioning everything I write. I find I need positive energy to keep writing, and bad reviews are nothing but negative energy.
If for some reason you couldn’t write anymore, what would you do with your gift of communication?
Help others write their stories. I have had the privilege of helping a noted sports evangelist share his testimony with the world through a book and have encouraged others who came to me to write what is in their hearts.
