A Sign? Cool Bumper Sticker…

I was taking a walk on my lunch hour yesterday in historic old New Castle, thinking about rewriting a part of my new, second novel to come out this fall called “The Peace Maker” when I saw this bumper sticker that “spoke” to me:

“It is an affront to truth to treat falsehood with complaisance.” (complacency – it was written in old fashioned English.) I was mulling over how to deal with the part in my book where the protagonist is grappling with deciding whether to get divorced when she’s about to become the First Lady of the United States. She’s married to an abusive alcoholic and living what has become a lie. (The story is based on the story of Abigail in the Bible’s Samuel 1).

Wow, I do believe God even talks to us through bumper stickers!

Being Tested…

I thought I was being “tested” recently by God (ie., why is everything so hard sometimes – including learning social media!) I was having some difficulty getting books into Barnes & Noble from my publisher/distributor for a book signing coming up May 6 at Christiana Mall in Delaware- opened Bible at random to James this morning – and – “zap” “ping” “pow” – James says (and I paraphrase) we only learn and grow through being tested, or challenged. Hmmm, makes sense – if everything were always easy, I guess I’d never grow. And then, what d’ya know, this morning I’m notified my books are being shipped on time for the book signing (after I let my worry go and decided to just have faith!). Perhaps I should re-read my own book based on Job!!

Interviews with newspapers – scary!

I used to be a news reporter…had no problem diving in and asking people questions. Being on the other end is a lot more scary (but also exhilirating!) I was interviewed yesterday and today as a local author of “The Faithful One” for articles in The News Journal (Delaware) and The Catholic Dialog (

Next Book Approved by My Publisher – Yea!

After some back and forth, my next novel, “The Peace Maker” has just been approved for publication by the Acquisitions team at Ellechor Publishing  – and I’m keeping my fingers crossed it will come out by October since it is based on a (fictional) presidential election – and the Bible story of Abigail – who saved David from killing her evil husband and her tribe, and in effect, saved him from himself, thus helping him fulfill his destiny as King of Israel and patriarch of the line of Jesus, the Messiah. Am grateful and joyful. Will keep you all posted!
