Video of Her Majesty's English Tea Room from the Atlantasmart Icon awards

Dear Fred, Nora, and all the bookfun people:   Fred was the first publisher to take a chance on me when he signed on Estate of Mind. For this I shoot up a little arrow prayer of thanks every day. I now have a trilogy about Scrap Booking: The Scrap Book Trilogy. But I thought  I would share a little about myself, as I often wonder about the authors I read about. 

My husband and I own a tiny tea room, Her Majesty's English Tea Room in the middle of no where. Recently we became winners…

Convicted by Jameel McGee and Andrew Collins

Wow, just wow! What a moving, convicting story. I'm not one to read non-fiction stories but this one was so amazing and was so well written that it read like a fiction story. Two men tell their stories and their amazing transformations. God was in this from the beginning. You can see his "fingerprints" on it all.

Jameel was a young black man and seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time more than once. Each time mistaken identity or mistaken circumstances landed him in jail and or… Continue

An Amish Summer by Shepard, Clipston, Fuller & Irvin

I enjoyed reading all four of these novellas written by four well known authors, all writers of Amish fiction. The first two were stories dealing with misunderstandings. Mistaken identity and mistaken actions. Really comes across as a lesson for anyone. Don't jump to conclusions and listen to all the details before determining your response.

The third novella is a lesson in taking someone at face value before really getting to know them. Outside appearances may draw initially but the real… Continue
