Mara's Secret Re-released after SIX years!
Okay, I have to be honest..Mara's Secret might have waited seven years or maybe five years to be re-released...it has been so long I don't really remember! The point is that Mara's Secret is back and it is better than ever!
I want to think Dingbat Publishing for making this dream a reality. Now to complete book three!
Don't you love the cover!
He’d earned it…
As punishment for his past deeds, Dougal Lachlan was prepared to spend the rest of his days in prison. But without warning, he wakes up in an unexpected place and time with a new mission. Should he be thankful, or terrified?
Mara Hess hasn’t spoken for the last ten years. Her family believes she’s dimwitted. But Mara knows something — a secret she’s afraid to share. The only way to make sure no one else ever learns what she knows is to never speak at all.
In a nation at war with itself…
Union troops arrive to fight the Confederate rebels for the lazy town of Wheeler’s Landing. But the Union soldiers aren’t what they seem. The town, and the Hess family, are in terrible danger. Can Dougal shake out his new, untested wings and fight for those he’s come to love? Will Mara’s secret doom the town and her family, or save them all?

When a missionary visits Joshua Lowe’s church and makes a plea for one more to join the forty-person mission team, Joshua takes notice. He is no longer satisfied with his mundane life. Maybe a deeper commitment is what he’s been searching for. But then something—or someone, that is—pulls him back.
Melody Watkins is damaged. Past sins have paved a difficult road for her and her young daughter. Now she finally has a job and things are starting to look up. At least until her car breaks down. But then again that could be a blessing as well, because it has brought someone new into her life.
Melody’s secret past and Joshua’s potential future holds them back from growing closer. Many prayers will be offered to determine if their roads intersect or if Joshua will be the last of the forty.

Update...Labor of Love just released!
A couple of years ago my family and I attended a Voice of the Martyrs Conference in Jackson, TN. One of the speakers told the story of a young girl that was given a choice-- recant her faith or be tied to a pole until drowned by high tide.
Since that time I've wanted to tell a similar story. I came close to writing it a couple of years ago but it just wasn't right.
Now after multiple published works I've gotten my chance.
Labor of Love is book three of the Renaissance Hearts Series. This story is about Sorcha, a young girl living in the 1500s who is fighting for her life, and the man who rescues her...
Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Astraea Press, and other on-line retailers.
Don't forget Book One in the series, There Your Heart Will Be Also, and Book Two, By God's Grace.
Something for Everyone...
