GOODREADS GIVEAWAY!

Thought I’d post it here that I’ve arranged with Goodreads to giveaway 5 signed copies of A Shattered Moon! You have until February 24th to enter!  

A New Year, A New Book!

I’ve declared 2017 my writing year and my first order of business was to release a new book! A Shattered Moon was released on January 17! It’s a fantasy novel, geared toward young adults but can be enjoyed by older adults as well. It tells the story of Ally Foster, a 15-year-old girl whose biggest […]

I’m Back!

Oy vey! What a year it’s been. My husband and I are calling this “Weddigeddon 2016!” We’ve had 6 weddings since February–3 close friends, 1 niece, and our own 2 children! In all the hubbub, I’m afraid I didn’t do anything but edit my events page. I hope to do better in the coming year. As […]

New Year Update

I find myself half-way through my next Biblical fiction novel, tentatively titled, In the Shadow of Kings. The story started out about Anna, the prophetess mentioned in Luke 2, and she remains a central figure. However, as I delve into the second half of the book, King Herod is going to play a more significant […]

As Winter Comes, so Does “Spring Rains!”

My newest book, Spring Rains, will be released this week! I’m so excited to be able to offer readers more about the lives of people in Marigold Manor. In honor of its release, I’m hosting a giveaway on Goodreads of Winter Trees, the first book in the series.  For some reason, it’s not letting me […]

Driving in My Car

It’s happened again. I’m riding in my car alone, concentrating on the road ahead (which can be difficult when you’re on I-29-it’s an incredibly flat, straight piece of highway) when in my brain, my WIP (work in progress) starts playing like a movie  in my head. It’s an odd sensation because, unlike when I’m in […]

Enjoying Spring

It’s finally arrived! Spring! Although winter here in Nebraska wasn’t too terrible, I heard the horror stories weekly from friends and family back in Connecticut. I think they’re still holed up in their houses, waiting for a true break in the winter weather. But I, thankfully, am writing this out on my deck on a […]

Autumn Update

I realize it’s been some time since I updated my page. I’ve been busy at work on the sequel to Winter Trees. The continuing story of Ginny, Chester, Edith, and Frank is coming along nicely, although there are many bumps on the road to romance. I’m about half-way through and I have to admit, I’m […]

When Bronze is Gold

Many months ago I entered the Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards contest with Woman of Flames. I was informed last night that the novel received a bronze medal in the Fiction- Historical – Personage category. I’m thrilled for two reasons. First, the judges considered my book worthy for recognition as a historical work. Throughout the […]

Finally!

So, after some four years, I’m finally ready to put Winter Trees up for publication. It’s been quite a journey. Most of the story has remained the same since the first draft made it to the semi-finals of the Christian Writers Guild’s Operation First Novel contest four years ago. I’ve tweaked it, sent it out […]
