Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.   Spring is probably my favorite time of the year. Even though with each change of season I get a little giddy looking forward to the transformation that...

I never would have thought I would some day look back at my twenty years in newspaper sales and be thankful? Selling space in a small town, tri-weekly newspaper was not the easiest thing in the world to do, but I have to admit it was probably easier than selling air space for a radio station. At...

In and around the foothills of North Carolina we are feeling the cool breeze of fall descending upon us. I simply love this time of year. The hard work of summer is over. The vegetables are preserved and ready for winter consumption. The squirrels are busy scampering around gathering nuts, hiding...

By now most children and young adults around the world are back in school. What a bittersweet feeling to leave a pre-schooler for the first time. What’s a mommy to do when her child is screaming “Mommy, Mommy, please don’t leave me.” Being the older granny that I am I can assure you that the child...

There are all types of freedom. It starts as simple as when you are a young child and granted the freedom to stay up later in the summertime when school is out. As the year’s progress and you get older you gain more and more independence, especially when you turn sixteen and get your drivers...

  I am excited! Last week I picked up The River Keeper, my fourth novel from my editor. The second edit is finished. Now it’s my turn to get to work. I love doing revisions and this second round doesn’t look too bad, not nearly as many marked up pages as the first re-write. However, it will...

Today’s blog is going to be very short and to the point. Instead of reading my words I want you to listen to them. All day today, Monday, February 11, 2013 I will be featured on “The Christian Author’s Show.” Today, will be the only day you can hear the interview between Don McCauley and myself....

I celebrated my 54th birthday this past Saturday. I’m hoping more inner wisdom will come with the added year. At least then I’ll have something better to show for living twelve more months than additional gray hair and a rounder middle.     This year I hope to pick and choose the most...

  Looking back on 2012 I have so many things to be thankful for. Good health, a family that loves me even when I’m not lovable, a God who erased my every sin with the cleansing power of His shed blood, and my writing. My new novel, The Color of My Heart was released in late October and is...

In high school I lived in fear of having to read, To Kill a Mockingbird. I really don’t know how I got around it, but I would guess cliff notes saved me. I wasn’t into literary fiction in my teenage years. The books I read were more historical fiction and love stories.   After all these years...
