Wonderful historical romance with depth

In A Noble Groom, Jody Hedlund combines rich romance, deep emotion and powerful drama in a moving narrative that thoroughly entertained this reader. The stand-alone novel, set in a Michigan immigrant community during the early 1880s, mixes fiction with actual events and vividly captures what life was like in the German peasant community there. It's also a book of…

Review of Chocolate Covered Baloney by K.D. McCrite

If you're a fan of books for tweens and teens, then you'll be a fan of K.D. McCrite and her lively young heroine, April Grace. This series takes place in the 1980's, before the age of cell phones and social media...which proves that tweens are pretty much the same regardless of the decade, and deal with the same kinds of issues.

In Chocolate…

Review of Not by Sight by Kathy Herman

Not by Sight is a story of faith in the face of despair and tragedy. Even when her family believes there is no hope of finding her dad and sister, missing for five years, Amy Cummings clings to the belief that they are out there somewhere and will return home.

Amy acts on the belief that a little girl she sees in town is the missing Riley Joe and finds herself confronted by well-founded doubt from family members. She fails to heed warnings by a foreboding stranger to stop…

Review of The Unspeakable by Tessa Stockton

This was a compelling read with a suspenseful theme and tone to the story. The writing style is excellent and really pulls you in. I've heard about the dangers in other countries from various factions and political dissidents, but wow, this story had an impact on my view of things. At first I thought the plot was going in one direction, then it took off in another. The…

Review of Considering Calvinism: Faith or Fatalism by Gil Vanorder Jr.

The subject of Calvinism is discussed quite often at the small Baptist church my husband pastors. As a result, I've done some reading on the topic in order to have a better understanding of the doctrine.

Considering Calvinism: Faith or Fatalism is by far the easiest book I've come across in terms of writing and explanation of terms. Plus, the author doesn't talk…

Book Review: Celtic Knot by Tammy Doherty

I liked this book so much! But, then again, I’ve always liked western historicals. Tammy Doherty hits the mark with this novel. It’s superbly written with vocabulary, language, and phrases appropriate to the period in which it is set. Fast paced and suspenseful.

In Celtic Knot, Abby Finnigan struggles to raise her daughter after the death of her husband.…

The Joy of Editing


Time well spent!

My debut novel, "Finding Beth", took four years to write, edit, rewrite, edit some more, rewrite some more... You've heard the same thing from other writers, I'm sure. I must say that I hated it! Every time someone gave me feedback, telling me I still had too much telling rather than showing, I wanted to hurl the thing across the room. I wanted to give up. Quit. But I couldn't! So, I kept…

The Presses Are A-Sinking Matey

Recently I attended a four-day festival/flea market. The event was a forty-five minute drive from my home and I had to be on site at 7am. Needless to say I am not a person who rises before the sun. Oh yeah, I already told you that in a blog a few weeks ago. Well let me say it again: I do not get up before 7 in the morning unless absolutely necessary.

Book Review - Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green

If this is Jocelyn Green's debut novel, wow, what will the next be like?!

I was amazed by this book! The flavor, the very writing style, of Wedded to War is Civil War Era.

I have read quite a few books from the 1800's for school so I have become somewhat familiar with the writing patterns from that time, this…
