For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
It all started with a Miller's daughter.
The Maiden Without Hands is about the daughter of a Miller family who was inadvertently traded to a Wizard for a pile of gold.
The girl in the story has a gentle, patient heart. So, first I needed to find the perfect name and ended up with Kardia who is a Sano, or healing mender. This means she can heal by touch, a gift that's very rare and highly sought after by the Wizarding community.
Kardia comes from the tiny hamlet of Goia that's located on the far outreaches of the Rodonal Province. Goia has been forgotten and left abandoned. A prime target for a wizard seeking a way in to overtake the Province.
It's those left on the outside that are often the ones the enemy picks off first.

In the land of Alburnium live a race of enchanted beings, called the Logorians, who inhabit the White City. In celebration of the Prince’s birthday season, they’ve decided to gather together the first three books of the White Road Chronicles collection and bind them into one.
The bound volume, reveling in the beginning tales of the Illuminate children- Tarek and Alyra – along with their brave group of friends, will go out across the kingdom for all to enjoy.
However, the special collection will only be available during this magical celebration time. As the last glow of this season fades, so will the chance to attain this special offering come to an end.
Seize yours now…while time remains.
Looking for a Christmas gift for your favorite reader? You will be able to load someone's e-reader with the first three book from the White Road Chronicles for nearly half the price of purchasing them separately.
Haven't read the White Road Chronicles yet? Here's your chance to try out the series.
In this special edition, there will be a special note from me about the writing of Illuminated, Luminosity and Emanate. This offer will only be available until the end of 2017 and will only be offered in ebook format, at your favorite retailer.
Keep watch for when it releases on November 20th. Just in time for your Thanksgiving Holiday.
Okay, so I admit it. I cringe and whine outwardly when the Christmas decorations start to show up in the department stores, but inwardly, my heart gives a little cheer.
Yes! It says, We can start digging out the tree soon. In just six more weeks. Tops. Of course, Mr. Castle prefers to wait until after Thanksgiving.
But maybe if we just bring out the decorations and wait on the tree. A few snow-globes mixed in with the fall foliage, right? We can get away with at least that.... right? I try to stay strong and tell my excited little heart no, we need to wait.
But still, that desire remains, and an eagerness for Christmas carols and glittering lights grows with each falling leaf and cold morning. Can I get an AMEN here?
I know some folks think rushing the season is silly. But is it really rushing it, or extending it? Or, spreading it out?
Ha! I feel like I'm grasping for straws here. LOL!
So here's the thing, I put up my Christmas story early. I tried to be good and wait, but...

Not too long ago, my bookshelves were like sacred ground. Wherever we moved, my boxes (heavy) of books (which Mr. Castle often threaten to throw in the nearest dumpster) would go with us. Didn't matter if I'd read the books before. If I loved them, they stayed with me.
Some still do.
Then the e-readers became popular. At the time, I was working at a bookstore and purchased my first reader, a nook, for a really great price. And I was hooked.
Are you a Kindle Unlimited reader?
I wanted to let you know about a few deals I have going on.
First off, if you're a member of Kindle Unlimited, there are two books currently available for you to read:
“But what if—”
His finger rested on her lips, halting her words. “No what ifs. Hear me? We can only take one day at a time. One moment, love. We need to help thresh the wheat right now. Let’s get that done. Then we’ll deal with the next thing that comes along. Together. Promise?”
Her heart filled to bursting with the love she had for him. After all they’d been through, and here they were, still desperately trying to hang on to each other. But what if… no. She pushed aside her doubts for now. “I love you, Tare.”
“Love you, too, Alyra.”
Ah, but will that be enough?
Great News! I've finished the last White Road Chronicle book.
I'm pleased to announce that the final installment is due to release June 22nd. At the moment, the book is with editors. But I'm confident that I'll be able to have the ebook version in your hands by the end of June, at least.
So, you might be wondering... just what will you be looking for?
