“Settle in…You are about to read a page turner.”

from the foreword, by Larry King

Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero, (Thomas Nelson) by Michael Hingson with Susy Flory, is the story of a man blind from birth who triumphed over adversity throughout his life. His hard won survival skills and his feisty can-do spirit prepared him to survive the World Trade Center attacks in a 78-story stairwell descent with his guide dog, Roselle. Michael’s blindness didn’t stop him from shocking the neighbors by riding his bicycle through the streets of Palmdale, California as a child, and on September 11 his blindness became an asset as he survived and helped others during the worst terrorist attack ever on American soil.

Yet, there’s more. “The real story, in my mind, isn’t how I got out of the World Trade Center,” said Michael. “It’s how I got there in the first place.”


Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero, releases 8/2/11.


Dog Tales: Inspirational Stories of Humor, Adventure, and Devotion (Harvest House) is a collection of dramatic, heart wrenching and sometimes hilarious true dog stories.

Dog Tales features 17 amazing dogs, including:

  • Selvakumar, a scruffy yellow dog in India who rescued a seven-year-old boy from the deadly tsunami.
  • Roselle, a guide dog who led her blind owner safely down 78 storiesof Tower 1 inside the World Trade Center on 9/11.
  • Faith, an abandoned two legged puppy who learned how to walk upright on her back legs
  • Toast, a stray dog who, through a miraculous reunion, taught faith, hospitality and hope to two women who had lost all hope.
  • Freddie, a cranky Pekingese who fought off a bloodthirsty golden eagle who wanted to eat him for dinner
  • Andre, a survivor who found himself caught in a wolf trap
  • Highway Man, a homeless man’s dog who would not be caught
  • Leo, the gentle mastiff locked away in an abandoned house

Dog Tales: Inspirational Stories of Humor, Adventure, and Devotion releases summer of 2011.


So Long Status Quo: What I Learned From Women Who Changed the World (Beacon Hill).

What happens when nine amazing women of history inspire a suburban mom to abandon her couch and dive into real life? Cuba, welding, and jewelry for water, that’s what!

Susy’s life was a lot like her couch–comfy, slumberous, and safe. She was a happy suburban wife and mom who enjoyed her couch-like cocoon and avoided suffering and uncomfortable situations at all costs. Then she met Rose … Eleanor … Elizabeth … and Jane. Now, thanks to their example, her life will never be the same.

SO LONG STATUS QUO is the powerful story of how nine amazing historical women inspired a suburban mom to get up off her couch and embark on a quest for something more. Venturing into unusual and even dangerous places, she followed their example and found herself serving needy children on a secret humanitarian mission to Cuba, feeding the homeless, sharing her faith in pagan communities, and selling her jewelry to fund freshwater wells in Sudan.

Inspiring, convicting, and transformational, SO LONG STATUS QUO challenges women to examine their lives and answer this question: How can I become a woman who changes the world? Whether it’s by sharing your faith like Perpetua or getting your hands dirty like Rosie the Riveter, Susy invites women of all ages to say goodbye to their old, couch-comfy lives and become women who change the world, starting in their own backyard.

I'm so Thrilled to see you here!! I LOVE Book club. I’m passionate about getting the word out about Christian authors and their books to book clubs. I think this could be a great for them to meet for each to learn from the other; authors from book clubs and book clubs from authors, I’ve seen that so far. It’s been fun to watch. We’ll see where the Lord leads us in 2011. We have many exciting opportunities lined up for the beginning of 2011. I hope to see more brainstorming, fun and us learning from each other. Book Clubs are about relationships with each other and with authors. It’s a win win!

Blessings to you
