That’s what I hope you’ll experience in my novels: gripping stories, fast-paced, and full of twists, while my characters discover God’s unconditional love, the freedom of forgiveness, the value of trust, and the power of prayer.

We get caught up in the uncertainties of truth in the news, slander on social media, and an overall disregard for authority. These traits may have been around for years, but maybe I’ve finally reached the age to take notice and… 

Shopped Until We Dropped
