Sharing More News

I am excited to tell you that while I am waiting for our baby to arrive I will be busy writing. I have been contracted to write a four book series based on my childhood, with the help of Suzanne Woods Fisher.
I need to have the manuscript for book one finished by September which is creeping up surprisingly fast! It will then be released in September 2012 which somehow doesn't seem to be approaching with the same kind of speed.

In the meantime I am having a lot of fun recalling memories from my childhood.

With out having had my blog and all you loyal readers I don't think I would be writing a book, much less four of them! I want to extend a heartfelt thank-you to each and every one of you!

We wish you wonderful success in writing the books, and we will be praying that the Lord will bless your efforts and that your testimony will help others in their Christian walk. Let me just say, too, that I expected this and absolutely plan to purchase the whole series. As I have mentioned here before, high quality books with true content are few and far between.
