Though I love writing full-fledged inspirational fantasy novels, I have these little stories that I've been hanging on to for years now.
I've always thought it would be fun to write and illustrate picture books. Did you know that I was not only a teacher's aid in an elementary school, but I used to run the children's ministry at my church back in it's early years.? I'm amazed over this, too. Ha!
During that time, when I was first called back to write stories, I'd get these silly little stories that would sometimes hit me at the oddest times. (Usually in the middle of the night, as usual) So, I'd get up in the morning and write them down. When our church was just a small gathering, the pastor would let me read these stories to everyone.
The kids enjoyed them. So did some of the adults.
That was quite nerve-wracking, let me tell you. But I learned something at that time. I learned that I could say things in stories that touched people's hearts. Even helped them at times. I learned the effectiveness of telling a parable.
Sheep's Tale, was the first one to come to me.
After a very long year, I've finally finished the first mini-series from The Chronicles of Alburnium. Perhaps you've read the White Road Chronicles series. This newest series of fairy-tale retellings all take place during an earlier time in the world of Alburnium. You'll meet Tarek's early family, along with a few other favorite Houses...and Beings.
You'll also learn how Lord Darnel rises to power over the course of the extended series.
The Lionheart Province is Leon and Kardia's story,
Coming next will be the Phoenix Province which will be Rillion and Sterlyn's tale.
(Don't worry, you'll meet them in Gold & Fire, so be looking out for them)
For now, let's talk about the conclusion of the Lionheart Province - Gold and Fire.
I'll also share a sneak peek of my favorite scene.
Oh, and in case you didn't notice, the first two covers have been given an overhaul. What do you think of them?
An impossible demand. A woman who hates him. He needs a miracle. Can he get it in time?
Expert animal trainer, Seth McGuire, has put everything into his animal rescue charity. With less than six months until his 35th birthday, his father completely blindsided him with an impossible demand. He must be married by his birthday, or lose the trust fund that finances his charities. Yeah, right—he will not lose his charity! Online dating sites, here he comes!
Noelle Combs is offered an opportunity to take her relationship coaching blog and turn it into a regular television show. And she has a decent chance, too—if she can figure out a way to take the stars of her blog—two, rowdy, uncontrollable Great Danes—and tame them enough to be manageable on the show. Good thing her agent finds her the perfect animal trainer. Bad thing –it’s the man who broke her heart several years ago.
When Noelle agrees to be Seth’s relationship coach, he can’t believe that he ever let this woman go. Sparks fly as they try to help each other attain their goals.
Now they are faced with a choice: forgive the past or walk away and lose the only true love they've ever had.
