Book Release–Protected

Welcome to my official webpage. I’m so happy to share with you the release of my latest novel, Protected. It will be available 5-14-15 in ebook format for $3.99 at Amazon and B&N. The print version will be available in the next 10 days, so if you’re a print reader, check back!

To celebrate this new release, I’m dropping the price of Hidden to $0.99 for a limited time.

Hidden and Protected are the stories of two sisters, separated by geography and time–but close nonetheless. Dana and Erin endured a horrific event during their childhood, but they were blessed with a caring foster family and each other. Both have become successful in their chosen careers. Now they need more. If they are to triumph over their current situation, they’ll need each other, a close community of friends, and the faith of their childhood.

These are sweet though suspenseful stories that focus on the importance of family, friends and faith. Those very things are my prayer for each of you.

Memorial Day Lessons

Christian living Comments: 10

dad I’ve heard a lot of talk about Memorial Day being more than picnics and fireworks. About how we should appreciate the men and women who have sacrificed for our country. About how we should remember.

So today, I thought I’d “remember” a little, and I hope that you will share your memories with me in the COMMENT section.

My father was a WWII vet–a paratrooper. He jumped at Normandy and helped to liberate the Nazi concentration camps. He bore his share of scars from that service, and like many WWII vets he didn’t talk about it much. But my dad did teach me a lot about honoring our veterans and respecting our country. Here are a few things I learned:

  • me and dad 001How and when to raise and lower a flag every day–yes, every day. And yes, I think we were the only ones on the block with a flagpole in the front yard.
  • To stand when the National Anthem is being sung.
  • To thank other veterans and current service men and women for their service
  • To stop and think about what that sacrifice included
  • To pack a parachute. I know–that’s strange! I asked him when I’d ever need a parachute, and he laughed and said “you never know.” He did actually bring a parachute home and attempt to show me how to fold and pack it. I wish I had a youtube video of that.

As I’ve grown older I’ve read a lot about WWII and subsequent conflicts. I appreciate more fully what our solders have done and continue to do. My dad was a patriot, and I’m proud of him. And on this Memorial Day, I remember. What about you? Any Memorial Day memories?
