Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is happy to have L. C. Chase here today on her tour for A Fortunate Blizzard.   She’s got her own sort of Q and A for us….  Welcome!

A Random Snapshot by L. C. Chase

Today I thought I’d pull some Q&A from an interview and turn it into a random “on topic” style post.

Favorite quote…

I have two favorites, actually:

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

   ― Mother Teresa

“Write with love, write with joy, and write with pride.”

   ― Victor J. Banis

All-time favorite fictional character…

Of all time . . . that would have to be Stuart Redmond from Stephen King’s The Stand. I just loved that character from the very first paragraph, and I can’t really say why now. I’ve read the book eight times, but not for more than ten years now. After all these years though, his character still resonates with me. I believe King weaved magic into that one.

Meeting my characters…

I would love to meet all of my characters in real life, but from my latest release, A Fortunate Blizzard, I would love to meet both Trevor and Marc. Not until after their epilogue, however. Why? Because I would love to go down into Marc’s amazing studio with the wall of windows and views of the Front Range, and paint with the two of them.

Dealing with rejection…

Years ago, an editor who rejected my story at my very first pitch session said, “I’m only one editor at one publisher.” That comment stuck with me ever since, and in an odd way, gave me confidence. A rejection isn’t the end of the world. It doesn’t mean stick to the day job. It just means keep at it, work hard, be the best you can be at your craft, and then hope the next time you pitch a story you find that one editor at that one publisher who loves your story.

The most annoying thing people say…

Them: What do you write?

Me: Romance

Them: Oh, so porn.

Me: *groan*


Favorite Song: In the Light, by Led Zeppelin

Favorite Movie: Pleasantville

Favorite TV Show: Castle
Leather or Latex? Leather!

Naughty or Nice? Nicely naughty. 🙂

The latest book…

With A Fortunate Blizzard I wanted to write a romance that revolved around the holidays and tugged at the heartstrings. A love story about two men finding each other at exactly the right time, and in doing so saved each other. A tale of hope, of taking that chance, and making the most of every day we have. I hope I’ve achieved that.

Now About

A Fortunate Blizzard by L.C. Chase

AFortunateBlizzard_600x900The Blurb:

There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.

Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.

Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.

When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.


  1. Thanks for the fun interview! Loved the quotes you shared and the story about how you got encouragement from a rejection.

    I look forward each year to holiday stories and A Fortunate Blizzard sounds like a good one.



  2. Fun snapshot! I love the movie Pleasantville, and it totally makes me smile to read it’s your favorite. The scene with the painting in the diner, when I saw it the first time, I just felt like everything just stopped for a moment. Beautiful! Really looking forward to A Fortunate Blizzard. 🙂
