Fighting Like Cats & Dogs (3 Minutes with Author Annie M. Ballard)

In the fourth and final installment of the Sisters of Stella Mare series by Annie M. Ballard, the four grown Madison girls are fighting like cats and dogs. Or, as my latest guest on 3 Minutes with the Author, describes it, "fighting like teenagers." In THE HELPING HEART, the constantly bickering siblings decide that getting out in nature may be the only way to mend their relationship. They plan an epic hike along the Fundy Footpath and learn, once again, how to be sisters.

Join Annie and I as we talk about her writing process and her latest release. WATCH NOW.


Recovering sisterly connection will take a gargantuan effort, so Helen proposes an epic hike: backpacking along the mythic Bay of Fundy. The four siblings set out to navigate the physical and emotional challenges of the trip, determined to make it work in spite of each other. Or maybe everyone is seeking something.

Gorgeous wilderness, spectacular heights, sea and cliffs and wildlife are nothing compared to the collision of demons from the past and fears for the future. With only each other to count on, and relationships already fraying, anything could happen. And, of course, it does.

Up next, my interview with historical fiction author Kerry Chaput.
