Heartfelt Apology

Mom, last year on our deck before Hurricane Michael

This post comes with a genuine and heartfelt apology. As I posted earlier in the year, I had great plans to publish several novels by this time. But, as often happens, God had different plans for me. In a nutshell, my elderly mother, 90 next month, has been in the hospital, moved twice (my hubs and I moved her to various senior residences), been in rehab, been diagnosed with mild dementia along with stage 4 kidney failure and chronic afib and stage 4 congestive heart failure. She’s finally moved in with my husband and I so we can take care of her. It has been a wild ride! And even though I have been her primary advocate, housekeeper, and caregiver for 9 years, this new season is a whole other kind of care. The dementia explains a lot about the challenges we’ve faced in past years and it also helps me know the next season will require added patience and compassion on the part of my husband and myself. Honestly, right now, my primary purpose is to be a caregiver and a servant. Hopefully, if things settle, I can finish the medieval manuscript- the last ChristKeeper novel- which is more than halfway done. In the meantime, I covet your prayers and hope you can forgive my botched publishing timeline. Love Never Fails, Grace

Verity’s Promise

vp3.jpg I’m so sorry I’ve been away so long. Hurricane Michael did extensive damage to our home, and I’m now the caretaker of my elderly mother. Lots going on right now in my life, but thankfully the writing schedule has resumed.

Verity’s Promise will be published this fall. It is the last in the original ChristKeepers series. I’ll post further updates as the summer rolls on.

Hope you enjoy a sneak peek at the new book cover. I like it a lot, hope you do too. LNF, Grace

Beyond Blessed Published!

Hope you enjoy this new book, my first foray into non-fiction. It’s a very personal look at how God has blessed me over the years. Hopefully it will be a comfort or encouragement to someone who might be trudging through a valley instead of basking in the glorious sunlight of a mountaintop. Or maybe it will just be the source of some practical tips to serve you well as you make your own journey through this life. Here is the amazon link: Beyond Blessed

Mercy’s Heart Builds Readership

I’m delighted to report that Mercy’s Heart is building a loyal group of readers. As a novel it combines so many elements that folks looking for in a historical romance but are hard to find. For one thing it relies on reality. I don’t know about you but I find some inspirational just too sweet and unrealistic to enjoy.

I think a hero should be a man not a saint. I believe that even heroines in Christian themed romance shouldn’t be mindless child like parodies. I wrote ‘Mercy’s Heart’ with those ideas in mind.
