Message From Author: I am Oklahoma Green Country, ranch raised, proud to be an American Veteran woman.

I discovered my writing talent at age 10, and have been writing poetry, short stories, and books ever since.

I've been married and widowed, and all my children have four legs. I love animals, have training as a veterinarian assistant, and graduated from college in 1986 with a degree in Drama. I live with my 87-year-old mother in an old farmhouse between Skiatook and Sperry, Oklahoma, like taking long walks with my year-old Schnauzer, Mahlah, and caring for our four cats, Goldman, Sunny, Happy, and David. We're visited every night by our neighborhood racoons and opossums, and a sweet dog we call Bud, who comes by every morning.

Lucifer House by Cherie' Waggie

After the death of her father, magazine editor, Olivia Gray has to get away for the holidays. The isolated coastal town of Pirates’ Point, Maine seems to be the perfect place.

Her first night at her friend’s beach house, she discovers Pirates’ Point has a night walker.

Chris Wu, a lonely man who lives in an ancient rock house on the cliff overlooking the ocean is a former international pop star who disappeared from public view eight years earlier after a tragic car accident. His home, Lucifer House, built by a notorious pirate captain, Jean-Paul Lucifer, is believed by the townspeople to be haunted by the ghost of 10-year-old Charity Lucifer.

After an accident temporarily cripples Chris Wu, Olivia moves in to help him and soon becomes convinced not only that Charity does haunt Lucifer House, but that she is trying to get a message to Chris concerning the car accident. It isn’t long before Olivia becomes convinced the accident wasn’t an accident and someone in Pirates’ Point wants Chris dead.

Cold Coffee Press Book Review: If you love paranormal, mystery, romance and suspense, you will find Lucifer House by Cherie' Waggie hard to put down.

Author Cherie’ Waggie weaves a believable, multi-layered tale that keeps one foot in main character Olivia Gray’s world and the other in the lure of the past.

I love everything Maine (born on the coast of Maine), so the well-developed characters and descriptive writing kept me engaged, as the sleuth in me needed to know what happened in this coastal town.

Main Character Olivia Gray just needs some time away from the bustle of the city after the death of her father. Little does she realize what awaits her in the cold, damp, coastal, New England fog. I invite you to Pirates’ Point, Maine and specifically invite you to Lucifer House (built by a notorious pirate captain, Jean-Paul Lucifer) where the ghost of 10-year-old Charity Lucifer might just reach out of the mist and touch you.

Settling in, Olivia Gray leaves her room to explore her surroundings and I quote. “Outside, the half-moon dangling over the ocean bathed the world in silver blue light. She went onto the deck to watch the waves play along the shore and movement caught her peripheral vision. She turned her head.

Someone was walking along the beach, his hands in the pockets of his heavy coat, bare head bent, oblivious to the waves that seemed to wash over his feet. A solitary, lonely figure against the backdrop of the ocean and night, he passed the beach house and seemed to melt into the darkness.

Olivia shivered. There were no such things as ghosts.

Returning to her room convinced that the night walker must have been some local unable to go to sleep, she climbed back into bed. Maybe he lived in the house on the hill. And maybe the drive to Maine wore her out more than she thought. Maybe she imagined him. After all, who would walk through ice cold water in the middle of the night?”

The night walker is only the beginning, Olivia finds all her senses fully awake and engaged as the mysteries surrounding Lucifer House beckons her to unravel the truth and bring peace to the spirits on Pirates’ Point.

Cold Coffee Press Spotlight Interview With Cherie' Waggie

Author Cherie' Waggie joined the U.S. Air Force after she graduated from high school. She had always wanted to go to college, be the first in the family to do so, but we hadn't the money, and the only money available would have been student loans.  So, when the recruiters came to career day at school, she sat in on all of them, and decided that the Air Force was the best service for her, and she would be eligible for the GI Benefits.  Since this was during the end of the Vietnam war, the old GI Benefits were still in force, so she was able to receive 100%, and she did, after her tour, attended college and earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree.

Her tour was from November 1974 to February of 1979. She went in on a delayed enlistment and began basic training in February of 1975. The Vietnam war had just ended, but only on paper.  So, she was considered a Vietnam Veteran. The actual end of the war didn't come until the mid-70s.

She was stateside, assigned to Brooks AFB in San Antonio Texas all four years, which didn't make her all that happy. She never wanted to go to Texas and especially not stay there my entire tour.  But she was from a small town and had never been away from home, so going into the service was the best thing she could have done for herself. It gave her a chance to meet people, some who are still friends, and learn to live on her own and take care of herself. She learned skills that she used though all the years after.

She became an "author" when she was about ten years old. She was always writing stories and poems, and once had a notebook full of them from ages 10 to 15, but she has no idea where that went. She did a lot of reading and writing in school, and worked on the school paper. While she was in the service, she was always writing when she had time, and had a newspaper article published in the San Antonio newspaper. She doesn’t remember what it was about now. She wrote her first full length "book" in 1979, after she come home from her tour. One of her favorite characters was also born that year as a school project at the college she was attending. That particular character has gone through so many metamorphoses over the years that he has taken on a life of his own.

She married in 1980 and moved to England with her husband who was stationed at Upper Heyford Air Force Base near Oxford. She did quite a bit of writing and painting while she was overseas, and when she returned home to begin college full time, she began to write with frequency, especially on the weekends when her roommate would go home and she would be left alone with her typewriter. She has been writing ever since.

All her children have four legs. She loves animals, have training as a veterinarian assistant, and graduated from college in 1986 with a degree in Drama. She lives with her 87-year-old mother in an old farmhouse between Skiatook and Sperry, Oklahoma, likes taking long walks with her year-old Schnauzer, Mahlah, and caring for our four cats, Goldman, Sunny, Happy, and David. She is visited every night by their neighborhood racoons and opossums, and a sweet dog they call Bud, who comes by every morning.

Interview:

What makes you proud to be a writer from Oklahoma? I was raised on a ranch outside of Pawhuska, OK.  I can't say I'm proud to be a writer from there or anywhere.  I'm proud of my accomplishments, the books, but blessed to have the talent to write.

What or who inspired you to become a writer?  Growing up on a ranch with no playmates, one tends to develop an imagination.  That was my inspiration.  My mother, who always wanted to be a journalist, encouraged me to keep writing.

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? Absolutely.  I had no playmates as we lived in the country and I only saw other children during school.  My sister is 6 years older than I, so she was too busy being a teenager.  Because we lived so far out with no neighbors, I spent a lot of time playing in the woods along the creek, riding my horse, climbing trees, hiking and fishing.  Time alone, I would make up stories and was good at playing pretend.

When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published?  I began writing at age 10. I think I always had in mind to be published.  What good are stories with no one to read them?

What has been your most rewarding experience with your writing process? Finishing my first book.

What has been your most rewarding experience in your publishing journey?  Finding my current publisher.

How many published books do you have? Six

Please list the titles of all your books:  Without Warning: The Fireman; Look Back To Tomorrow; Twisting Dagger; Lucifer House; Dakota's Dragon; Once Upon A Weekend.

Please introduce your genre and why you prefer to write in that genre? I write mysteries because that's what I like to read.  But I started in Science Fantasy and Fantasy, which I hope to include in my writing in future.

Do you come up with your title(s) before or after you write the manuscript?  Usually during the writing, when something jumps out at me in the text.  Sometimes I have a title in mind, but that sometimes gets changed during the writing.

Which book title would you like featured in this interview?  Lucifer House

What was your inspiration, spark or light bulb moment that inspired you to write the book (one book) that you are seeking promotion for? The idea just sort of happened. I wanted to write using a female lead and having a romance of a sort, which I'd never written before. When I was younger, I read a lot of Gothic Romances, such as written by Victoria Holt and Dorothy Edens.

What one positive piece of advice would you give to other authors? Be careful in finding a publisher.  There are many out there who aren't "honest".  Do a lot of research first on the publishers you consider.

Who is your favorite author and why? Bill Pronzini    I started reading his books some years ago and fell in love with his writing and his characters.  He is a wonderful inspiration as he has been writing for many years and in all types of genres.
