What genre do you write in? What draws you to this genre?
I write in almost every genre! My first writing project was a family devotional, my second a non-fiction book for teens, and my third a World War II historical novel. I've written 70 books, ranging from children's books to parenting books to memoir. I love the flexibility and to be able to follow as…

Review: God Made The World

Image
`God made the World` is a cloth book made especially for babies and toddlers, illustrated by Emma Haines. The cover is crinkly and the back page has a safety mirror for the child to see that God made them, too. The stuffing is 100% polyester, machine washable, and not made for teething.

          The text is about 12 - 14 font and has about 4 words per page. This organization is sufficient for this age group. The author used imagery, along with the words, to tell a story. Examples are: God made the oceans (fish), God made the meadows (rabbits in a meadow), God made my friends (cat & dog).  The primary medium is drawings.

        The book comes enclosed with plastic to keep it nice and clean. It would make a perfect gift for any little one in your life. I am very impressed with the colorful illustrations.

April, welcome and it's so good to have you visit today. Thanks!

At some point in the creation of every novel, I ask my characters, “When the Enemy strikes or faith is shaken, when doctrines confuse or godly men differ, when the world is crumbling and life is threatened, what will you do? To whom will you run?”
If they were to turn the question on me, I pray I’d answer, “I look to Jesus. Only He will do.” 
My Creek Country Saga delves deep into Native American culture and spiritualism. Some of the concepts are f…

Review: Steal Away Home

Image
`Steal Away Home` is a Christian Living book about Charles Spurgeon and Thomas Johnson by authors Matt Carter and Aaron Ivey. Thomas Johnson was a former slave that had been trained at Spurgeon's college in England and commissioned by Spurgeon as a missionary to Africa. The authors are quick to note that this book is not a biography or a history book, but a story based on real life events that occurred in history. Many of the word-for-word quotations are from Spurgeon's or Johnson's own writing.

        Young Charles Spurgeon enjoyed visiting his grandfather staying for long visits to read the books his grandfather owned. He also enjoyed the outdoors where he saw beauty in everything the Creator made. Charles' grandfather played a big role in Charles becoming a famous preacher. His knees had callou7ses from kneeling in prayer, damaged eyesight from years of reading scripture, and his heart groaned for the Spirit of God to save souls.

        I learned that Spu…
