Saturday Spotlight - Judith Rochelle

Well Friends, hope your Thanksgiving was Blessed and Happy!
Today we're spotlighting fellow TWRP author, Judith Rochelle (aka: Desiree Holt) and her book On the Run.
Judith lives in the Hill Country of Texas where most of her hunky cowboys come from. Her real love is Texas, where so many of my stories are set. She's had a lot of firsts in her life – first female sports report on The Michigan Daily at the University of Michigan; first woman to own a rock and roll agency in Detroit, the home of Motown; first woman president of the Pasco (Florida) Economic Development Council. Her background is so varied it’s given her a lot of experiences to choose from when plotting stories. She's been an insurance agent, newspaper reporter, a public relations and special events coordinator, managed rock and Top 40 bands, worked for both a public and private university, chaired regional economic development councils and served on political campaign committees. When Judith is not writing she's an avid reader – anything and everything – and watches football, especially her favorite team, the Michigan Wolverines.
Blurb for On the Run: When Robin Fleming witnesses the murder of her sister, Jamie, her only thought is to grab her nephew and run, from her vicious brother-in-law. Running and hiding, covering their tracks, they eventually settle in Memphis to begin a new life. Robin, now Laura, though still grieving for her sister, is determined to make a good life for her nephew. Then illness hits Andy, and while Laura is dealing with that crisis, bad luck and unfortunate circumstances bring all the players together again and endanger everyone’s lives. Can Dr. Gage Hollander, who has fallen in love with Laura, find a way to save them?
Excerpt: Taking the highway into Oregon might have been easier on her, but she was sure that was the first route C.D. would check. Instead, she cut east immediately into Idaho. Besides evading C.D., she had a specific reason for coming this way. Tomorrow they'd get to Helena, where she had important business to take care of. Things that would help keep her and Bobby safe.

Robin had only a vague idea of how long they'd been driving but it felt as if she'd been doing it forever. Her eyes were gritty from lack of sleep and her muscles rigid with tension. It didn't help that she was constantly watching for some car to run her off the road. She'd been lucky enough to find a couple of drive-through's where she fueled up with coffee. Caffeine raced through her system like a wild horse, revving her up and making her edgy.

She slid a glance at Bobby, wrapped in a blanket and buckled into his car seat. What a lucky thing he was sleeping so heavily. Still, she knew they needed to find a bed pretty soon. And food. Starvation wouldn't be a pretty way to die.

By the time they reached Kellogg, Idaho, she was more than ready to stop. She pulled gratefully into a motel whose sign blinked ‘Vacancy' in big red letters. It was the most welcoming site Robin had seen in a long time.
