I'm celebrating in a huge way today.  My agent has sold 8 of my backlist books to Belle Bridge Brooks.  These are books from my pre-CBA days, but inspiring and uplifting stories all the same. :)

Book release

    Dear Book Lovers,

     I have been keeping a journal of the struggles, hardships, and blessings of my life over the past few years and decided to write a book. The book, Surviving the storm, is an inside look at the trials and tribulations I have endured since the terrible car accident in 1974.

     I am proud to say that the book was finally published March 17, 2001.

     I have been truly blessed and is thankful to…

Introducing My Baby - Joab's Fire

I'm so excited. Within a week I will be holding a copy of my book, Joab's Fire.

The last few months I went through all the emotions of a pregnant woman--anxieties, joy, fear, giddiness, frustration...oy.

And I know that in the next few months, I'm going to feel like I just had a baby--long days, little sleep, fears, joy, peace, anxiety, hurt,… Continue

Yesterday's Tomorrow - by Catharine West

Gripping, heart wrenching, poignant, fast paced, tender, descriptive … these are all adjectives that aptly describe Catharine West’s debut novel Yesterday’s Tomorrow. It’s the story of Kristin Taylor, a young reporter out to prove herself by going into the field during the Vietnam War. In the midst of the horror and carnage she finds out what it means to be a friend, a lover, a Christian - a human being. This unfortunate era in US history is well researched yet never pedantic.…

BOOK COVER: I was really drawn to pick up this book because of the cover. First of all I LOVE the binding and old book look. The girl on the cover made you look at her a couple of times to imagine what was happening there.

My Friend Jesus - a review

MY FRIEND JESUS is the story of one man's unusual encounter with 'Jesus' in the flesh. It is classed as fiction, but because of the allegorical nature of the story, it almost comes off more like a devotional book, with a lot of scripture references and lots of 'teachable moments' that are meant to explain the basic tenents of the Christian faith. Mr. Lombardo's writing style is quite beautiful - very elegant and eloquent, which is something that I appreciated about the book. However, the…

February's Best Blog Post: In the Presence of the King (a Fiction Friday post)

This story is adapted from a scene I edited out of a work in progress.

In the Presence of the King

Tamara walked the corridor to the Great Throne Room, a guard on each side and her feet trembling with each step. Had the king decided to reject her plea for sanctuary? She hadn’t been completely honest with him. Did he find out? Sure she hid the king's knight, but she was convinced that was not the only reason the king's enemy sought… Continue

This was a difficult choice for us because there were so many…

Rather than writing a blog of my own thoughts, I wanted to take the time to honor one of the people who motivated me to become a writer. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Born Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904, he dropped out of Oxford, where he was attending grad school, when a classmate Helen Palmer [she became Mrs. Theodor Geisel in 1927] commented that he was a talented cartoonist. Geisel used his drawing skills an illustrator for advertising campaigns, including Standard Oil and…
