Giveaway! Sunken Treasure by Katy Lee!

Welcome back Katy Lee! Since this is the third time for you to visit, I thought I would throw in some fun questions, maybe some that aren’t part of the norm in other interviews. :- )

If you could go anywhere on vacation where would it be?

Most likely Scotland, due to my heritage from there, but I’ve been to Italy before, and will return someday, I’m sure.

Do you have any pets? 

I have one kitty cat now. We lost our Princess Kitty this summer and are still a little weepy over it.

Your favorite book that you have written? 


My new release is my favorite right now. “Sunken Treasure” required me to step out of my comfort zone and go SCUBA diving. Yikes! My next series after my Stepping Stones Island series takes place around a speedway, and I’ve been on two high-speed races already. But I draw the line at skydiving. No way! That I will not do.

What is your favorite pastime? 

I’ve always been a big traveler and still do love seeing God’s creation with my own eyes, but my children have become quite the little swimmers on the swim team, and I am LOVING being a Swim Mom in the stands.

What people have inspired you in your writing journey? 

I am blessed to have wonderful writers right in my own town. They are my support and totally “get” me. We each write different genres, but we don’t let that come between us.

What character in a novel you have read has stood out and seemed to stand the test of time? 

Catherine Anderson wrote a book called “Phantom Waltz” with a paraplegic heroine. This is not a Christian book, but the characters really affected me. It was a different kind of romance. Anyway, it really made me want to write characters that have the odds stacked against them, and yet, they come across as strong and driven. My book “Warning Signs” has a deaf heroine, and it’s my hope I accomplished this. Reviews from readers, especially deaf readers have said every hearing person needs to read this book to grasp a better understanding of the lives of people who are deaf.

If you could meet one person from history who would it be and why? 

This tends to change for me as I read literature with my children. Right now we are reading “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” by Mark Twain. So, I would say right now it would be Samuel Clemens.

Okay, last one and a fun one for our readers today: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one thing, what would it be? Why? 

Ha-Ha, I was asked this question in college. I had to perform an impromptu speech, and they threw that question out at me. My answer then was a lighter so I could start a fire create smoke signals and get rescued. Today, I would probably say the same thing, but I might wait a day or two and enjoy the peace and quiet while I had a chance.


Too fun, thanks for joining us for a third time!! It is a privilege. :- )
