I'm still doing two things at once! I'm in the final stages of finishing up my next novel for FaithWords, His Other Wife. As soon as this book is finished, I can give my full attention to the next collaboration with Joyce Meyer! For several months we have been in the deep research part and its so much fun, letting the Lord lead us as we put together the story. More on this as soon as a plot has revealed itself!
The two novels from Steeple Hill Publishing, Only You, and Family Matters are now finished—Only You is available right now; Family Matters will be out in March, 2008, but is available for preorder (click the title links).
Both of these books are rewrites of secular stories that I first sold in the 1980’s. Once again, I express gratitude to the Lord that I was allowed to take these old stories and rewrite them for God’s glory. The faith element was present in both these stories from the very beginning. James Michener once told me that it is impossible for an author not to share his faith in his writing; there is a consistent faith in something that stays evident in each author’s work.
In these rewrites, it has been a special chore to return and find those threads of faith and bring them to the forefront. I want you to know, before you purchase these books, that they are rewrites from early in my career and the writing itself is different from the works that have come about in the past few years. An author learns with every project she works on. Each project changes her; she never comes out the same as she went in.
