Meet the Set Director For Finding Kylie

Okay - I admit - this is a horrible photo of me, but I had to introduce you to my set director for the reading of Finding Kylie. The date is set for October 3rd, and she has such vision and passion that I know it's going to turn out great! We met for lunch today and she (upon meeting me for the first time) enveloped me in a huge hug. I knew I loved her ... she has a heart and a bright smile.

Humbling to Say the Least ...

 Today, I released Saving Grace.  I didn't expect a lot as I didn't do a ton to spread the word on this book compared to previous novels that I've released.  However, today it's slowly climbed in the best sellers list to reach #18 in the top #25 in the  Best Sellers in  Christian Mystery & Suspense Romance  category. I am super humbled to see how many of you have downloaded the Kindle version of this book. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
