Christmas Extravaganza: Radio Wave Romance

by Katie Clark

Hit radio show host Annalise Waters is challenged on-air when one of her listeners, social studies teacher Christopher Sanders, accuses her of being cold-hearted toward the needs of the local children’s hospital. Afraid of public backlash, the station arranges a fundraiser for the hospital, with Annalise at the head. But it’s a fundraiser that drags up painful memories from Annalise’s past.

Christopher hadn’t intended to be hustled into a fundraiser—he’d only wanted to make a point. But as he spends more time with Annalise, and realizes his mistaken judgment, he can’t deny the growing feelings for this woman who is anything but cold-hearted. Will she ever forgive his on-air accusations and see the depth of his true feelings?

About Katie

KATIE CLARK started reading fantastical stories in grade school and her love for books never died. Today she reads in all genres; her only requirement is an awesome story! She writes sweet Christian romance for adults, as well as exciting speculative fiction for Christian teens. You can connect with her at her website, on Facebook, or on Twitter.


Love is definitely in the air in this fun romance with a serious sub-story. 

A high school teacher. A talk show host.  A teenager with cancer. A public challenge that becomes an entire Christmas-season fundraising event. In the midst of all the funds and festivities, the educator and the local celebrity find themselves learning a few lessons on life...and love. I enjoyed watching Annalise and Chris discover surprising truths about themselves even as they fell hopelessly in love—despite their best efforts to sabotage God’s plan. 

A charming, well-written story with an underlying call to action on the cancer awareness-and-support front. The author packed a hefty chunk of emotion into an entertaining and nicely developed novella. This one made me smile even as it tugged on the ol’ heartstrings. Kudos to Katie!


What inspired you to write RADIO WAVE ROMANCE?

The initial idea came when my husband made an off-handed comment about something totally unrelated. He said, “That sounds more like a Christmas disaster!” The idea stuck in my head…a Christmas disaster? Characters and circumstances took shape from there, but the idea sat dormant for a few months still. Finally, after getting a rejection on a different manuscript, I decided it was time to move on with something new. So, I began writing Radio Wave Romance.

What makes you laugh out loud?

The unexpected. I loved things that are unexpectedly funny. Humor that catches you completely off guard. Other “funnies” might make me smile, but if you want to get me to laugh out loud, you had better surprise me!

Do you usually insert a spiritual theme into your books? If so, do you have a favorite? 

I do. I can’t help but do it, even when I try not to. Maybe that sounds odd, but it’s true I’ve tried writing books without an overt Christian message. It always come out, though. I guess I just don’t see how to separate the emotional journey from the spiritual journey! My Christian faith is a tightknit part of my being.
