My Next Novel is Coming!

Two weeks ago I turned in Across the Blue, and I'm excited to tell you a little more about it. Set in Kent, England, in 1909, it and tells the story of an English pilot who wants to be the first to fly across the English Channel to France and the aspiring journalist who thinks his story will be the ticket to launch her career. It includes romance, adventure, family drama, and inspiration! Across the Blue releases early in 2018. We're working on the cover now, and I can't wait to show it to you as soon as it's ready. Until then, here are a few photos of the setting and the heroine. You can see more on my Pinterest board.

Playing ball with my granddaughter

Besides working hard to meet my deadline, I've also enjoyed time with family and traveled with my husband on two ministry trips this spring. I'm blessed and thankful for all these opportunities.

I hope you're enjoying a beautiful spring and finding time to read some great books. Blessings and Happy Reading,
