Hold Your Breath and Hope Fiction
"Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us" Romans 5:5 NKJV
"I love writing.
I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions."
Photos like this make me hold my breath at its beauty. I love a story that makes me want to hold my breath at its mystery or suspense or romance until it resolves in a deep sigh of satisfaction. I love stories that give me hope, hope that there's a way out or that faith will increase or a prayer will be answered or there will be safety or a solid solution.
. . . and that's my aim as I write, to fill you with anticipation and hope!
"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart."

I'm excited to announce my novel
will be released in the spring of 2015.
From the back cover:
For the past eighteen years, Lexi Christensen has been sheltered from the truth by a soft-cushioned life of normalcy, until the contents of an envelope link her to an ancient vow. All Lexi wants is to get out from between the vise grips of her suddenly protective parents, rescue an historic mansion before she leaves for college, and stop herself from falling in love with the man her best friend claims to love. But finding the envelope thrusts her into drastic and difficult choices. Someone knows more about Lexi’s heritage than she does, wants what she’s found, and threatens her life to get it.
As her future twists into an incredible mission that propels her from her sand-ringed island home to a foreign mountaintop, Lexi is in a race against both time and danger. Her faith may be strong, but is God asking too much?
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, a tried stone,
a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation . . .”
(Isaiah 28:16 NKJV)
