It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

Redemption - Book Style

Do you know how hard it is to write a story from a point of view that you'd never want to see?

My first book, Finding Kylie, is now out which was from my point of view from 'my' what if story in life. Now the sequel is my task, and it's from the opposing side or point of view. Not that I can't do it, because I've made some extra-ordinary headway in the last 2 days...BUT it's definitely interesting to put myself in someone's shoes, who I don't want anything to do with.

So that I don't give anything away in my current book, I won't say too much except that the main character's name is Chastity. She finds some things out in her life and about some family ties that she's not sure she wants or now needs to know. This book takes her on her journey in many ways to discover about life and love through her mother's hidden journals, found after her mother's, Kylie's, funeral.

This new book, Facing Redemption, is from a totally different vantage point...from the black sheep of the family. Whew! It's a daunting task but a challenge worth taking on to show that even the worst of us, with a changed heart, deserve the chance to face redemption.

Whoo! How bout that? Did I perk any interest in anyone with that? I can't wait to see what happens! I already have the third book lined out too. So this first novel is one of three! I'm so excited!
