I just woke up and realized a few days ago, that the retail outlets are all getting into "Back to School" mode, and that I should be too! (in spite of the fact that to me, summer is only half over. . . )
I wrote a new book this spring, as a grad gift to my two graduating teenagers,…

Who's asking? Yes I wrote that. Don't you like it? How many times have you been asked that question. Makes you wonder don't it. I have found that if I let my fingers loose they will say something. Sometimes what they say isn't entirely what I had on my mind. Oh well, that goes with being a writer. An absolute requirement for a writer is, I guess you figured that out already...yes, write. Not just when you feel like it, but every day. Have a set time you get up and go to your favorite place…Continue

Okay, this book was completely amazing from start to finish. In fact, of the eight novels of Marylu Tyndall's that I've read, this is my absolute favorite. Not only was there plenty of realism and romance, but there were a lot of insightful comments about faith, slavery, surrendering to God, the meaninglessness of worldly riches, etc. But you could also see how…Continue

Adding TBCN store links to my purchasing options, such as Pinterest boards and Facebook author page.
DESCENDED by Dana Pratola is a romance first and speculative second, although the premise of a man who can make himself invisible due to some kind of supernatural lineage is enough to put it in that category. There is a lot of great description and enough surprises to keep it interesting. Jett, the hero, uses his gift in ways that seem a paradox at times, but are ultimately for good. Aspiring artist Haven falls in love…Continue

As sweet romances go, June Foster’s A Hometown Fourth of July fits the bill, but there is so much more of an underlying story. The main plot is inspired by a real-life relative of the author, so we can see why the details are right on target.
Max Tate had been adopted into a wealthy, prominent family in the town of Ft. Freedom. But he had always felt…Continue

Daystar by Kathy Tyers definitely touches a spiritual cord, while taking the reader on a fast paced adventure to unknown galaxies. Even at a daunting 650 pages, the story maintained a great pace and was engaging throughout. There was enough pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo (which Sci-fi writers…Continue
