All of Me Wants All of You


The winner of the Illumination Awards Gold medal for Inspirational Romance, J. Z. Howard’s All of Me Wants All of You merges the sensual intimacies of sex with the sacred qualities of faith into a dramatic tale of redemption.

            Mired in a sexless marriage, Dean and Kate Nelson face a dubious future. After years of prayer and waiting on God, Dean is at his wit’s end. He seeks refuge with the beautiful Larissa Beaumont, a non-Christian. But after discovering Dean’s emotional affair, which he ends on his own in obedience to Christ, Kate confronts Larissa. The two women form an unexpected friendship, however, and Larissa sets out to help Kate mend her perilously shaky marriage. But Larissa, a single mom, fears that she’ll never find her soul mate. An introduction to Dean’s friend Trevor Harrington, however, brings renewed faith that maybe love is possible after all.
            An intriguing mix of love, sex, and spiritual awakening, this dramatic tale of passion and faith shows the creative ways God rewards those who seek His vision for wholeness.      

The Independent Publisher's Illumination Awards are intended to celebrate and recognize the exemplary books produced by the ever-growing Christian branch of publishing and bookselling.

I am so pleased that All of Me Wants All of You was awarded the Gold Medal in the Inspirational/Romance Fiction category.

I've put the link to their website just below. The Inspirational/Romance is category 15 (scroll down to see it).

Congratulations on receiving the Gold Medal from the Illumination Book Awards in the Inspirational/Romance Fiction category!  This is indeed a well-deserved honor; I found this book to be thought-provoking, insightful and a truthful look at challenges faced by those wanting a spiritual and physical connection with their partner.

Does this Edgy Christian Fiction definition appeal?

Posted on March 8, 2015 at 12:00am 0 Comments

    What do I mean when I say that I write Edgy Christian Fiction?

    Basically, it means that I identify with the people who live in this fallen world and with humanity’s redemptive struggle. As an author and as a human being I seek to engage with the world rather than to separate from it, to associate with a wide variety of folks rather than to avoid interacting with them.

    So, if you go looking for my books in a Christian bookstore, you won’t find them…
