What is something unique/quirky about you?
  1. I’m fluent in pig-Latin.

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!
  1. Besides meeting/interviewing Kenny Rodgers when I was in high school? I’m still absorbing the fact that one of my books may soon be on television. How’s that for interesting! (Details to come.)

Where were you born/grew up at?
  1. I am a Texas girl, through and through. I grew up in the small town of Rockdale, Texas and moved to an even smaller rural community when I was ten.I still live there today! I lived in College Station while attending Texas A&M University, but when I married my highschool sweetheart, we made our home on my family’s property. My husband and I own commercial chicken houses and cattle, and love our country lifestyle.    

What do you do to unwind and relax?
  1. My husband and I like to travel. And while I don’t much care for being in the water (I don’t swim, water ski, or spend much time on anything smaller than a cruise ship), I find great inspiration while sitting beside the water. I do my best ‘recharging’ while listening to the gentle gurgle of a stream or the roar of the ocean. Give me a book to read (or plot) while there, and I’m a happy girl.  

How to find time to write as a parent?
  1. Both of our children are grown, but we are fortunate enough to have all four of our grandchildren living near us. I try to attend their ball games, school functions and what have you, so being a doting grandparent and a productive writer don’t always mesh. Sometimes I have to tell them ‘Nana is writing and can’t play right now.’ Then I see that cute little face pressed against the window or hear that little voice on the phone, and my heart just melts. I can always get up early/ stay up late to write.
That said, my husband is wonderfully supportive, and a couple of times a year, he’ll send me away for a week to do some serious writing. Then the trick is to ignore those cute Facetime calls and texts.  

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!
  1. I’m a writer and you confine me to only five words?? Hmm. Creative. Loyal. Real. Border-line compulsive.

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
  1. Exactly the way I spent my birthday yesterday -- with my family!

Inn the Spirit of Legends
Spirits of Texas Book 1
by Becki Willis
Genre: Paranormal Cozy Mystery

From the author of The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series and Forgotten Boxes, comes an intriguing new book series, the Spirits of Texas Cozy Mysteries. 
When the tiny hamlet of Hannah, Texas goes up for auction, Hannah Duncan’s fun-loving uncle sees it as the perfect gift for her thirtieth birthday. After all, what’s more fun than a town bearing your own name? 
Nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, the ‘town’ isn’t much — a dozen or less buildings in various stages of disrepair—but it comes with a dedicated pair of caretakers, a menagerie of farm animals, a surprisingly generous trust fund, enough stipulations to make her head spin, and a handsome but maddening attorney to oversee the handling of the estate.
Originally a stagecoach stop, Hannah, Texas resolves around the historic and rather charming Spirits of Texas Inn. The old inn comes with a colorful past, the mystique of hidden treasure, loyal guests who still book summer vacations there, and three surprise residents: true spirits of the past, who didn’t cross over as expected. 
Now Hannah has her hands full, coming to terms with her unexpected status as an innkeeper, adjusting to life in the country, fighting her attraction to attorney Walker Jacoby, plus dealing with ghosts! 
To top it off, two fortune hunters arrive to search for the hidden treasure, and they don’t care who stands in their way. They’ll stoop to any means—including murder—to get their hands on the legendary stash of gold.
Don’t miss out on the excitement, right from the beginning. Book your visit to Hannah, Texas today!
