People ask why I write the stories I do. I have a heart to share about real-life issues that affect us all in one way or another–either us personally or a friend or family member. I hope my stories create a new sense of empathy for the trials and triumphs we all go through. In my latest novel, Hold the Light, Amber faces such a trial–she’s losing her sight. We all deal with loss at some point, and we all need to find our new path and new normal. I’ve found that new normal comes in stages–not often leaps and bounds, but in baby steps of faith and prayer. I hope you’ll order Hold the Light and see how things turn out for Amber.

And now, my giveaway! YES, there’s even more!! I want to make sure you don’t miss out on recent news and blog posts, so please follow my blog, sign up for my newsletter, let me know what you think of this incredible contest, and share with your friends. PLUS if you’ve read my other titles and want to make sure more people see my newest release, please preorder Hold the Light. That way, when it goes live, it’ll shoot right up to the top of bookseller’s lists and get more attention from readers I’ve not connected with yet!

Three additional prizes for you to WIN! Three people will be drawn for either  a $25.oo Gift card for Amazon, a $15.00 Coffee Card or any of my novels autographed/personalized for you.

You can order my new release, Hold the Light HERE

To an artist, the light is everything. So what is Amber supposed to do when facing blindness?

Amber spent her life adapting first to being abandoned by her birth mother as a toddler, and then to the death of her adoptive father in her teen years. Now she s moved past all that, loving life as an independent woman: she has a job as an art instructor and the perfect apartment.

But when a routine eye appointment reveals she’s losing her sight, life comes to a halt. Pressures come at her from all sides. Her mother, her boss, her boyfriend and her closest friend, Shannon, all have ideas about what’s best for her.

Even after her blindness counselor, Ethan, befriends her and opens her eyes to new opportunities and the possibility of a deeper relationship, one haunting question remains: How could the God she loved all her life turn everything upside down again?

    Being blind is one of my biggest fears. Thank you for writing about this heroine and reminding us that God can use us in our imperfections for his perfection.

    This scavenger is a great idea. I love it

      I think that’s a fear we can all identify with–it’s one we all played at…but as we get older, the reality sinks in. Thanks so much for commenting!
