Lin Stepp writes Christian romance/mysteries just the way I like them! She sets her stories in her favorite (and home) part of the country, the northeastern Tennessee mountains.
Tennessee In Real Life — Hiking the Hills
Because, in another life, Stepp and her husband enjoy hiking the various trails in their region, she has a good view of the geography to put into the stories.
The couple write non-fiction books featuring the hiking trails they enjoy so much. Readers rate their charming early hiking book, The Afternoon Hiker, a favorite. Admired by hikers who don’t want to spend more than a day on the trail, the Stepp’s book brings their experience with an amazing number of trails. Candid photos shot on the trails bring their personal touch to the description of their experience on each trail. Directions to each trail along with a rating for difficulty help readers plan their own day trips through amazing scenery.
New Look at Tennessee from the Stepp Cameras and Pens
2018 brought the debut of the newest team effort from the Stepp authors. Discovering Tennessee State Parks. I was surprised by the numbers — Tennessee has a whopping fifty-six state parks! j.L. and Lin have visited each park to bring their readers up close to the recreational and activity opportunities offered in each location. The photos are, again, candid, often including the authors as they enjoy their park outing. With the volume of parks they have been able to be out in all seasons. The colors from each season and views are stunning.
In the Amazon sample, you can read about one park with the photos I wrote about earlier. The writing is easy, conversational style…just as you might use to tell me about your favorite place while encouraging me to visit that spot. The newest book is available in digital format which is nice for travelers to have handy without having to worry about damage to the actual paper book.
Writing about Their Tennessee Home!
The authors are Tennessee natives. Lin uses her love for the regional scenery to expand her fiction books with descriptions of the country. Because the stories in each location are delivered lovingly, the ‘research’ rings true, pulling a reader in. From an early novel, Tell Me About Orchard Hollow to the most recent, Lost Inheritance, the stories are gently told with true faith, romance, mystery and risk making good reading for all. My husband enjoys reading them as much as I do…they are definitely not your ‘chick love story’ books.
