Seeking New Publisher

I have been very fortunate to have two of my books published by Tate Publishing. They did a great job for me while it lasted. However, they recently announced that they have suspended all operations. I’m not sure if the two books that they published, Loving Toby and the sequel Saving Vera, will be available for purchase after the published supplies have all been sold. I retain all rights to my books, therefore am looking for a new publisher and a new agent to represent me. I can be reached by email at

My other books are available for download as e-books through


It’s seems not so long ago that I was looking out of my kitchen window watching my neighbors shoot off fireworks to welcome the new millennium. That was seventeen years ago! Life has changed drastically for me in those years. In 2000, I was married with two teenage daughters. Now I’m widowed with grown daughters and grandchildren. I was writing my first book, and now I have published seven.

Life changes and with it comes new blessings, new challenges, and new regrets. I pray that in this new year your blessings will be many, your challenges victorious, and your regrets few. Look to Jesus Christ for all of your answers. The Bible is a wealth of knowledge and a storehouse of encouragement!

Great to Meet Fans

I just finished a promotional tour in Montana, Wyoming & Colorado where I met some fantastic people! Thanks to all who purchased my books and especially to those who have read my other books and encouraged me to keep writing. The first Taylor Family Adventure book called The Haunting of Indian Canyon will be released within a few months. I have already written three more and have begun the fifth in the series. Also, I’ve started on the third book in the Loving Toby saga.

Who is a Sinner?

We usually think of sinners as people who do bad things. Actually, God says that we are all sinners. Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” All includes you and me. If we’re honest with ourselves, we know that. So, what’s so bad about being a sinner? We get paid for sinning! Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death,” OUCH! Sin brings death? How can we escape that? The second part of that verse says, “but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Obviously everybody dies, right? Even Christians die, so what’s that all about? Those without Christ die physically and spiritually, spending eternity in a continual dying state of torment. But, those whose Lord is Christ Jesus will have eternal life. Our spirits will never die. When our earthly life is over and we shed this earth suit body, we will still be alive in Christ and spend eternity being more alive than we are on this earth.

The most amazing fact is that eternal life is a free gift! That’s right, you don’t have to do anything to earn it. In fact, Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Jesus paid the price by offering his own body up in our place of death. Then, he overcame death by rising from the dead and is in Heaven making intercession for us to the Father God.

You want to know what else is absolutely amazing? Those who trust in Christ for their eternal life begin to change, to be conformed to be more like Jesus. Some change very slowly, some very quickly. We begin to see life differently and to hate sin, therefore turn from it. Life in Christ Jesus is so tremendously better than life without him, that it’s impossible to put it into words, though I try often. Talk to God. He hears everything you say, so why not ask him to open your understanding and lead you to know him?

Want to know more? Read the Bible for yourself. You can also email me at and I’ll be so happy to answer all the questions I can about salvation and the life in Christ.
