Book giveaway of Archangels 1 & 2!

It’s the season for giving, and I’m partnering with Goodreads.com to give away a set of my Archangels thrillers! Enter by Dec. 13 to have a chance to win a copy of both Heaven’s Gate AND Heart and Soul just in time for Christmas reading.

“You’ll stand up and cheer!” wrote one early reviewer of the books, which bring together cutting-edge science with Christian faith. “It’s a page-turner filled with thought-provoking ideas regarding the power of prayer and faith,” said another. With Amazon ratings of 4.5/5 stars, you know you’re in for a great read, and isn’t that what we all want when we pick up a book?

 

Lifting up faith and hope

Actually, one of the main reasons I began writing the Archangels series is because I was so tired of reading books that exploited evil. I thought I would scream in frustration if I read one more book about a serial killer, or a book that left me with a bad taste in my mouth regarding the awful things people do to each other. At that point, I resolved that I needed to write a series that lifted up faith, goodness, and hope DESPITE the evil in the world.

Archangels are the result, and judging from reader reviews, they hit the mark.

So I hope you’ll enter the giveaway. Or buy the books to read, or gift to someone else. In this holy season of Advent, as we await the return of our Lord and Redeemer, may we all fill our hearts with those most glorious gifts of faith, hope and charity!

Welcome to my new website!

Nine years ago, my first Bob White Birder Murder Mystery was published, launching me as an author – a dream I’d had since I was five years old and first stepped into a public library. I was astounded at the sheer volume of books on racks and decided right then I wanted my name on a book’s spine in a library. It took me another 48 years to get there…

Since then, I’ve written six more Birder Murders, an international best-selling memoir, Saved by Gracie, about how our dog helped me overcome anxiety, and the first two books in my supernatural Christian thriller series, titled Archangels. Along the way, I’ve blogged on my own website, guest-blogged for many others, and contributed devotionals to FaithHappenings.com for their subscribers.

In the last two years, I’ve also experienced a major life change: my husband retired from his career in high tech in Minnesota, and we moved to the Hill Country in Texas. Life is different here in many ways, and I find it is changing me, as well, so I decided it was time to revamp my website to better reflect who I am now as an author. It’s pretty simple, really, because what I want to do with my life is:

Laugh.

Live in awe.

Practice gratitude.

Love God.

In the months ahead, I hope to blog on a regular basis about those four topics. Sometimes I’ll tell funny stories, and sometimes I’ll offer more serious reflection. As always, I hope to entertain you, my reader, and share with you the wonder and mystery of life. To that end, I’m even going to throw in photos for laughs, for inspiration, for sheer beauty.
