I'm back... maybe!

It's been quite a year for me. Between a VERY sick daughter and the illness and subsequent death of my father, I haven't even thought about blogging in ages. Now, I'm trying to decide whether I'm going to take it back up or just let it go. So, I'm going to spend the next couple of weeks playing around and trying to decide.

On the good news front, my daughter is doing much better (not well, but much better). These are a couple of pictures from recent high school football games. As you can see, she does the horse to princess transition rather well :-)

Angel Song

I just received my Advanced Reader Copies of Angel Song!! Woo hoo! Sheila Walsh and I co-wrote this book. It will be out in August, and I'm very excited about it.
Here is the basic blurb:
Angels eagerly watch over Annie Fletcher's every move, she just doesn't know it yet.
When Annie Fletcher returns to Charl
eston to see her younger sister, Sarah, receive her master's degree, she finds herself riding in the back of an ambulance, watching helplessly as Sarah fights for life. During the ride, Sarah appears to talk to someone who is not there, humming a melody Annie has never heard.
Neighbor Ethan McKinney is there to lend a shoulder when Sarah unexpectedly dies. And, as a carpenter, Ethan volunteers to help Annie get the Fletcher family home into shape for selling. Ethan's presence is distracting, but what troubles Annie is her neighbor Tammy's 12-year-old son. Keith has Down Syndrome and the guile to believe he can see and hear angels.
God begins to reveal Himself to Annie--both in her newfound friends and through heart-rending and clearly supernatural events.

Got Kindle?

My publisher is doing a special promotion for the month of April-- they're giving away (yes giving away, as in, for FREE!) the Kindle version of A Promise to Remember.

Be sure to pass the word along to your Kindle-bearing friends!

And if you get the chance, drop me a line and let me know how you like your Kindle (I've been pondering them for a while now). Or... do I want an IPad? Or... am I too technologically challenged for either one?
