Hi Friends,
I just wanted to bring you up to date on some recent happenings in my Book World. My other blog used to be named Christian Fiction Historical Society Blog. I share the blog with 29 other excellent Christian writers. We decided to rename our blog Heroes, Heroines and History. You can access the blog on the 14th day of each month for my post at I hope you will join me and the other writers there. There are many chances to win books.

My latest Scottish historical, MARRIAGE BY ARRANGEMENT, has finalled in a number of  contests.

Marriage By Arrangement has also received a number of Five Star Reviews! Here is just one.


MASQUERADE MARRIAGE, the first book in the Scottish Marriage Trilogy, also won awards.
If you like mysteries, try mine.

You can purchase these book on and

And finally I just signed a contract with Elk Lake Publishing for a World War II Courageous Women series. The first book, ANGEL WITH STEEL WINGS,, about a woman test pilot will release soon.

I also signed a contract with Elk Lake Publishing for a private investigator series. The first book, HOLLY GARDEN, PI, RED IS FOR ROOKIE, will release in 2015.

So much has happened since I last gave you tips on writing. God has blessed and is blessing.

Looks for my next post on  that most important facet of novels, CHARACTERIZATION, next week. A book without compelling characters is an unpublished book. I have excellent suggestions to make your characters jump off the page and into the reader's heart. 

Leave a comment and tell me what's happening in your Book World for a chance to win an autographed copy of MARRIAGE BY ARRANGEMENT.

  6. Hi. I just discovered your blog through Heroes, Heroines and History. I know this post was from a couple of weeks ago, but here is what is happening in my world...We are trying to sell our home to relocate to about an hour away. It looks like we might have a serious buyer so I have been sending up prayers today!

  7. Happy Christmas in July - 90 degrees here in PA - could use a little Christmas now.
