Jordyn Redwood's "Proof"



Title: Proof
Publisher: Kregel

Cover blurb: Here is the Amazon Blurb: Dr. Lilly Reeves is a young, accomplished ER physician with her whole life ahead of her. But that life instantly changes when she becomes the fifth victim of a serial rapist. Believing it's the only way to recover her reputation and secure peace for herself, Lilly sets out to find--and punish--her assailant. Sporting a mysterious tattoo and unusually colored eyes, the rapist should be easy to identify. He even leaves what police would consider solid evidence. But when Lilly believes she has found him, DNA testing clears him as a suspect. How can she prove he is guilty, if science says he is not?

1) How did this story come to you?
I was watching a Discovery Health Channel special and the idea was born.

2) Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
For me, my publishing path started when I finally listened to the Lord and finished my novel. After attending the ACFW conference in 2006—I decided it would be most beneficial to attend another national conference only when I had my manuscript finished. When the ACFW conference came to Denver in 2009—I took that as the time to finish the book because I wouldn’t have to pay for airfare. One of my agent appointments led to Greg Johnson taking me on as a client. My publishing contract came in the spring of 2011.

3) Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
I’m an okay acoustic guitar player. Fairly accomplished quilter. I love tea with the flavored coffee creamers in it.

4) What are you working on now and what's next for you?
Right now, I’m working on Book #3 of the Bloodline trilogy—tentatively titled Peril and also editing Book #2, Poison, that is set to release February 2013. Next, I’m researching for my next proposal which will either center on an elite security firm in Washington D.C. or near-death experiences. Haven’t settled on which yet.

5) Parting comments?
Thank you so much for hosting me!

6) Where can fans find you on the internet?
I have a medical blog for both historical and contemporary authors to help them write medically accurate fiction called Redwood’s Medical Edge. Also my website at http://www.jordynredwood.net/.
