What readers are saying:


 Six amazing books from six different authors. They are all Christian fiction set from the 1800’s to present time. Each is a stand alone book with great settings, story lines and characters. All the books had family and faith. Some of the authors were known to me and some I was unfamiliar with. I really enjoyed each book. I can not wait to check out books from these new authors. – Amazon reader


 I didn’t know what to expect – I am not a fan of anthologies. Usually I find that the stories are too brief and the plots move too fast and don’t go into any detail and don’t make a lot of sense. Well, let me tell you that this anthology is not like this, not at all. It is wonderful! I enjoyed each of the novellas immensely. Each one has well developed, thought out characters and detailed plots that move at exactly the right pace. You have suspense, romance – everything in each of the novels. I enjoyed reading each of the novellas and couldn’t put the book down. Even though I have about 15 other books waiting to be read – I plan on reading this book all over again in the next week or so – it is just that good. – Amazon reader

Summer Reads for Sale Featuring My Writing

Thanks to a heads-up from Jeanette Littleton, I learned that the book God Encounters is selling for a mere $1.73 on Amazon. My miraculous car accident story is featured in this book. I was 10 weeks into a high risk pregnancy when I flipped our brand new van. Something very odd happened during the accident, but that’s all I’m saying. This book contains inspiring stories where God was clearly at work. The author is James Stuart Bell.



I peeked at other Amazon books where my work is included and Kathy Vick’s Run Like a Girl is also having a decent sale. I’m honored to be in any book but Run Like a Girl is so empowering and special to me.




If you want to find more of my writing, click here. Not yet published are four anthologies through FaithWriters and a fiction story now in development through the Peculiar People Project. It’s a group Sci-Fi project called the Orphan Plane and I’m writing a reality celebrity child story. Stay tuned…
