Merry Christmas!

Before I sign out for the holidays to spend time with family, I want to announce the winner of my Christmas giveaway. Congratulations to Margo from my newsletter list! I'll be contacting you this week.

Thanks so much to all of you who took the time to stop by my blog and share what you were looking forward to this Christmas. I really enjoyed reading through your comments and hearing what you had to share.

On another note, be sure and come back after the New Year as I will be hosting several giveaways in the coming weeks that will include copies of both Blood Covenant, book two in my Mission Hope series, as well as my upcoming historical An Ocean Away which is set in both Northern Rhodesia (Africa) and New York in the early 1920s.

For another chance to win a copy of Blood Ransom be sure and stop by Carman's Continuous Delights blogspot on Wednesday. She's currently running an end of the year celebration and is chatting with a number of authors with some great giveaways. Don't miss it!

If you're looking for some great fiction bargains, check out my website later this month. I'm almost done updating the site, and it will include a way to purchase signed copies of some of my older books at great prices.

Lastly, as a reminder of what truly matters this season, I'd like to share a couple poems written by my daughter.

Merry Christmas all!



On this day
The Christ is born
The Son of God
The Son, the Lamb
Mary gave birth to Thee,
One we've waited for eternity.
Mary, Mary, had Thy Son
Of our God
The mighty one
Thank you, God.
Thank you, God.
For this wonderful sacrifice of love.


One by one the wise men came
Down to the city of Bethlehem.
They brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh
For Mary and Joseph,
For their new baby Jesus.

We don't celebrate Christmas
Simply for presents.
We celebrate Christmas
Because Jesus was born like you.
And the difference was,
He was without sin.
He was God,
Outside and in.
