Tour Kick Off - Life: Discarded by @denaehaggerty #giveaway

Date Published:September 1, 2014
Why would a woman who has it all throw her life away? Morgan has the perfect life. She married the man of her dreams. Daniel is smart, gorgeous and successful. Everything she has always wanted in a husband and the father of her children. But he’s also domineering, overprotective and jealous. Is living with him enough to drive Morgan over the edge? Or does something more treacherous lurk beneath the fa├žade? 

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Yes! Career doesn’t mean I have to monetarily support myself, does it?

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

About half-way through each book comes a moment when I am convinced the book is NOT going to come together. If I make it past this hump, it gets exciting again when I realize I may just carry it off.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

I have a great friend that has read all of my books while still in development and really helped me to fine-tune the details.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

A lot of friends have pushed me to write a funny, chick lit novel as my blog articles are usually witty. I resisted their advice but then I came up with an idea and we’re off!

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

YES! My addiction to reading is actually much, much worse than my writing addiction. I’m currently reading a lawyer suspense novel from another indie author that asked me to review the book (Moscow Bound).

D.E. Haggerty was born and raised in Wisconsin but thinks she’s a European. After spending her senior year of high school in Germany, she developed a bad case of wanderlust that is yet to be cured. After high school she returned to the U.S. to go to college ending up with a Bachelor’s degree in History at the tender age of 20 while still managing to spend time bouncing back and forth to Europe during her vacations. Unable to find a job after college and still suffering from wanderlust, she joined the U.S. Army as a Military Policewoman for 5 years. While stationed in Heidelberg, Germany, she met her future husband, a flying Dutchman. After being given her freedom from the Army, she went off to law school. She finished law school and moved to the Netherlands with her husband and became a commercial lawyer for more than a decade. During a six month break from the lawyering world, she wrote her first book, Unforeseen Consequences. Although she finished the book, she went back to the law until she could no longer take it and upped stakes and moved to Germany to start a B&B. Three years after starting the B&B, she got the itch and decided to pull the manuscript for Unforeseen Consequences out of the attic and get it published as an e-book. Deciding that she may have indeed finally found what she wanted to do with her life, she went on to write Buried Appearances. After moving to Istanbul, she started on Life: Discarded , her third book. Between tennis, running, traveling, singing off tune and reading books like they are going out of style, she writes articles for a local expat magazine and various websites, reviews other indie authors’ books, writes a blog about whatever comes to mind and is working on her fourth book.
