Destiny Ford Blog Tour: Ten Things with Destiny Ford


A cow suicide, a revolving door rescue, and the birth of a bright purple pig are starting to make Kate Saxee wonder if taking a job in her small hometown of Branson Falls, Utah, was such a great idea. As The Branson Tribune editor, Kate covers local news, which, more often than not, involves her accident-prone mom. Nothing truly newsworthy has ever happened in the quiet town until local teen Chelsea Bradford turns up dead in a Branson Falls lake. 

The police rule Chelsea’s death an accident, but Kate suspects there’s more to the story—and she’s not the only one. Two of Branson’s most eligible bachelors are determined to help her solve the crime—among other things. But the small town social network is faster than Twitter, and gossip about Kate’s love-life is quickly branding her the Branson Falls hussy. 

As Kate learns more about Chelsea, she discovers that plenty of people are trying to cover up the real story behind the girl’s death—including Chelsea’s parents. Now Kate has to juggle work, men, her mom’s most recent disaster involving a low-speed John Deere Combine chase on the freeway, and fend off the Mormons heaven-bent on saving her soul—all while solving Chelsea’s murder. Dealing with this is going to require a lot of coffee, chocolate frosted donuts, Neil Diamond's greatest hits, and a slew of words not on the town approved imitation swear list.

Top 10 Favorite Things with Destiny

Favorite author (dead or alive) I have so many! But I LOVE Karen Marie Moning.

Favorite Chocolates Anything European. I love Cadbury!

Favorite books that inspired you to write The Fairy Rebel, by Lynne Reid Banks; and The Hobbit, by J.R.R Tolkien

Favorite songs to listen to while writing I listen to movie soundtracks. Lately, I’ve been listening to the soundtrack from Man of Steel…which means I get less writing done because I end up staring at photos of Henry Cavill. J

Favorite destination to live? I love the mountains in Utah, but I’d also love to live in New Orleans…during the winter, when the humidity doesn’t make it feel like it’s 120 degrees.

Musicians/bands/groups U2, Pearl Jam, NIN, AWOLNATION, Adele, P!nk, Florence + the Machine, The Beatles, Neil Diamond.

Favorite movies of all time Out of Africa, Love Actually, The Princess Bride.

Favorite TV program/series? Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, Arrested Development

Favorite movie moments The kiss between Aragorn and Arwen in Return of the King. Romance novels are written for kisses like that!

Favorite Super Villain  Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. I was completely captivated by how evil he was. Also, the villain in Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series is pretty incredible (I won’t say who it is because I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t read the series).

Favorite gadgets My cell phone. It’s distracting. My dog takes it from me when I’m not paying enough attention to him.

Favorite dream destinations Africa, Australia, New Zealand.
