As soon as I saw the cover of Stacy’s book, I knew I would have to buy it! What a beautiful scene! And I’ve always had a thing for hot air balloons! Stacy T. Simmons writes uplifting fiction that delights the reader’s romantic sensibilities. Thirty-four years of marital bliss is a great contributor. She is […]

Visiting the UK

Tower of London — Part 1 Today I was able to travel back in time to 200 AD — if you count standing next to an excavated Roman wall inside the Tower of London grounds! The Tower of London is only a few blocks from our hotel, on the north bank of the River Thames. […]

Wisdom from a Wordsmith – Episode 28

I am so happy to introduce you to Penny Frost McGinnis and her debut novel, Home Where She Belongs! When I saw that Penny’s book started off with one of my life passages, Proverbs 3:5-6, I knew she was a kindred spirit! She also loves lighthouses and chocolate!

Wisdom from a Wordsmith — Episode 25

Candice Pedraza Yamnitz I first learned of Candice during a writer’s conference when she was teaching a workshop on using Instagram as a marketing tool. She was a great choice for teaching that topic because Candice’s Instagram posts are adorable, challenging, and engaging! Not too long after that workshop, Candice’s novel Unbetrothed launched, and I […]

Nana Anders’ Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pie

One of my favorite scenes in His Brother’s Atonement is of little Jayson welcoming family into his home for Thanksgiving and being so excited about the chocolate chip pie he had made with his nana! The chocolate chip pie was inspired by my favorite of my dad’s pies, oatmeal pie. It sounds nowhere as awesome […]

I am so enjoying Crystal Caudill’s debut novel, Counterfeit Love. Often when I am short on time, I will do a quick read for a book I need to review, but this one is such a treasure that I have decided to slow down and savor each page. I am delighted that Counterfeit Love begins […]
