Bookish Things


I’m feeling so excited. Nervous. Vulnerable. Did I say excited?! Check this out! Yes! That’s my book! Finally available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Soon to be in the stores at Barnes and Noble, too.

This book was a 30 year journey for me. It was that long ago that I was taking Children’s Lit classes and the concept was written for an assignment. Life happened and I didn’t do anything with it, or with any of my other stories. In 2018 I felt a stirring to dust things off and start writing again. One of my pastors even had a word from God for me. Pastor Daniel had no idea what I was doing, but he felt impressed to tell me that “God wasn’t done with me yet (I had just turned 60 and was struggling with it.) That a dream I had for many years was going to be fulfilled. Not just that one but others.” Wow! And now look at this! I’m telling all of you, God is incredibly good. All the time.

Here’s a behind the scenes tidbit. I was trying to write about Oliver’s sister, Edith. But Oliver wouldn’t stop talking to me and insisting this was to be his story. As you can see I finally gave in. I hope you’ll get to know Oliver, and come to love the little rascal like I do.

Thank you for listening to me, and thank you to all who have supported me on this journey. I suspect there’s more to come in 2020.
