Today’s post is an interview with Kaylee Baldwin. Her newly released novel, Meg’s Melody is available at Amazon or Barnes&Noble.com. The story combines romance with redemption and real conflict to remind you it’s never too late to find joy.

Margaret: Who is your publisher and why did you choose them?
