We asked Katie Ruggle to answer a few fun questions to get to know her better, welcome Katie!
Coffee or tea?
Tea! I love my tea. Plus, I never formed an addiction to coffee (maybe not enough all-night-paper-writing sessions in college?). When I do have a tiny bit of some floofy coffee drink, I start talking very fast and feel like I very probably might be having a heart attack. So…tea.
What time do you get up?
Ready for this weirdness? Midnight. I have a shift at the bakery that starts at one a.m., so I’m sleeping by late afternoon. Ninety-year-olds have a later bedtime than I do.
What time do you go to bed?
Four p.m.-ish, unless I’m on a writing spree, trying to finish edits or are reading a truly excellent book. In those cases, I go to sleep much too late and then kick myself in the morning.

Series: Search and Rescue #1

That’s why Callum, the surly and haunted leader of the close-knit Search and Rescue brotherhood, finds it so hard to let newcomer Louise “Lou” Sparks into his life. But when these rescue divers go face-to-face with a killer, Callum may find that more than his heart is on the line ...

About the Author
When she’s not writing, Katie Ruggle rides horses, shoots guns, and travels to warm places where she can SCUBA dive. Graduating from the Police Academy, Katie received her ice-rescue certification and can attest that the reservoirs in the Colorado mountains really are that cold. While she still misses her off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains, she now lives in Rochester, Minnesota near her family.
