Kate Malmon: Congratulations on the recent release of your latest novel, Walk in the Fire! Lightwood introduced us to Judah Cannon. That book ended in a fiery showdown between Judah, his father, an entire outlaw motorcycle club, and a Pentecostal preacher. That’s a pretty tough act to follow! What do you have in store for Judah Cannon in Walk in the Fire? Steph Post: Thank you! Judah is going to go through some heartache in Walk in the Fire.
