Cover Reveal!

I'm so excited to share with you the cover of my next Love Inspired Suspense! Coming this September is Desperate Escape.

When Dr. Maddie Gilbert is kidnapped by rebel forces in West Africa, special ops agent Grant Reese races to rescue her. But the ruthless drug traffickers holding Maddie hostage have powerful connections--maybe even inside the US government. And they'll go to any lengths to silence her--permanently. Grant knows that getting Maddie free and safe is just the first step of this mission. Because he's fallen for the spirited beauty, and as her enemies pursue them, Grand must face a second battle--the one to win her heart.

Desperate Escape is available now for pre-order on line along with Vendetta, book one in another brand new series coming in October!

Happy Reading!

TucTuc Taxi!

As many of you know, the ECHO Project was started to help address some of the many needs we encounter around us everyday here in Africa. ECHO stands for Education, Compassion, Hope, and Opportunity. While most of the monthly ongoing help the ECHO project provides is in the way of medical, housing, schooling, and food assistance, occasionally there is an opportunity for us to help with a business loan that will provide continuing support of a family.

Alex is one of the young men the ECHO Project has been able to help in the past. He started by supporting himself by making bracelets and earrings. He was faithful in his work and used the money to put himself through driving school so he could get a better job. He then found work driving a Tuc Tuc taxi in our town, but often had to work seven days a week. He recently approached us for a long so he could be able to work for himself, as well as teach in the village, and go to church.

This is a photo of Alex and his new Tuc Tuc! Please pray for him and the success of his new business.

It's a word we use a lot here. Adventura or adventure. Because I can honestly say that life is never dull. The past few months have been particularly busy with lots of changes.


The first big change is that our oldest son is graduating from high school next week! The missionary school where he has been attending ends a bit later than traditional schools in the US, but it's still hard to believe that he just has a few more days. We are so proud of him and excited as he will be starting University in the fall back in the US.

 Another change is that as a family we will be spending the rest of the year in the US so we can be closer to our son as he adjusts to university and life in the states for the first time since he was six. We will also use this time to report to churches, raise some additional support, and hopefully find some time to rest before returning to Africa in January.

The last change is that the house we began building three and a half years ago is almost finished. There has been delay upon delay and more stress than we ever want to experience again, but the majority of the work will be done before we leave which means we will be able to move in!

 Change and a bit of adventure is a part of a missionary's life it seems. We really do find ourselves often saying that it's just a big adventura with both the good and the frustrating. And knowing that nothing on this earth will last forever anyway, that's okay! 

Be blessed today!


PS If you haven't read Dangerous Passage, book one in my award-winning Southern Crimes series, I just checked and it's still free as an ebook! And book two is only $4.99! Happy reading!

I know a lot of you are exited about the end of the school year and summer around the corner, but on our side of the world, I'm thrilled that the hot summer days are finally over. And while it doesn't get super cold here in our 'winter,' for me the weather's finally perfect!

Because of that, I've got a number of new photos to share in another post, but for today, I wanted to give you all a look at my next Revell cover for my brand new romantic suspense series I'm so excited about. Book one, Vendetta, releases this October, and you can preorder now!!

The Widow's Offering

One of the widowed women The ECHO Project is helping with a monthly food basket to help care for her orphaned grandchildren gave a gift of two roosters to our family and to David and Emily to show her gratefulness.

"While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins.

“I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has.” Luke 21:1-4

I'm so excited to be able to help support her for all of you to be involved as well.

I would like something from you as well, though. I'm currently working with my publisher on a possible brand new romantic suspense series set in different locals around the world. . .like Paris. So what about you? What would you pick as your top international local for a page-turning suspense novel?

A bit more about TAKEN:

Kate Elliot's suburban life turns upside-down when her sister is shot and her niece kidnapped. Unsure of whom to trust, she turns to FBI agent, Marcus O'Brian. Against the handsome agent's orders, she tracks her niece to Paris, but the City of Lights quickly becomes a city of danger. When kidnappers demand a ransom, Marcus isn't sure how much longer he can keep Kate alive. Now Marcus has the next twenty-four hours to save a stolen child and the woman he's falling in love with.

Happy Reading!
