In Antarctica the land and ocean aren’t the only things bound in ice. For Dr. Emilie Saunderson, it’s her past. She fears she won’t ever let go of the pain and grief caused by the death of her husband and child. For South Pole station manager Tom Wolinski it’s his future. He fears it’s his destiny to inflict pain and suffering on those he loves the most. Neither is prepared for the tragedy, or the miracle, with the power to free them both from being…Icebound.
DONNELL: Big city or small town girl?
JULIE: Small town to live in, big city close by for shopping! The small city where I live is a 4 ½ hour drive from the nearest big city. Needless to say, I don’t get to go marathon shopping very often.
DONNELL: Character driven or plot driven author?
JULIE: Sure I read reviews. It’s interesting to discover what readers take away from a story as it’s often surprising and usually something I never even thought of. That’s what’s so cool about books. The reader brings as much to the story as the author does.
DONNELL: What’s in your refrigerator right now?
DONNELL: What turns you off; what turns you on?
JULIE: Brigadier General Chuck Yeager, test pilot and the first man to break the sound barrier. I’d like to ask him why, in 1944 after being shot down by a German fighter and escaping capture on the ground, did he appeal to General Eisenhower to be allowed to fly combat missions again. Why did Eisenhower let him fly more missions? What did Yeager say?
