Devotionals, Memoirs, Historical Fiction – for Glory to God!
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! — Psalm 46:10 (ESV)
God has blessed me with an education, opportunities to minister for Him, and a gift for writing inspirational words to form sentences, sentences to form paragraphs, paragraphs to form chapters, and chapters to form books. I am thankful to be His instrument as He continuously places people in my path and sows creative ideas in my mind and heart. These books and devotionals contain beautiful messages and encouraging words, which exemplify God’s love, mercy, and grace. To God be the Glory!
Writing and being traditionally published is a dream many people share but few people achieve, and I am humbled when readers choose my books to read. God truly has taught me patience and persistence, and opened the pathway for me to find a wonderful Christian publisher, Beth S. Wilson, of Hear My Heart Publishing in Northeastern Oklahoma. Beth provides me with encouragement, shares her expertise, prays for me, and presents a platform for sharing the words of my heart with you.
Beth encourages writers to “Write your heart and the words will follow.” And she is so right. I used to write with my head, but I soon learned to write with my heart first and then my head. That’s when the words take on a different pathos. As per Beth’s Web site, “We believe that every writer has a story, and that every author has a voice. Hear My Heart Publishing is a safe, constructive and empowering environment where each voice is heard and applauded for the unique value it brings to the world” (www.hearmyheart.net).
In the past, I had two publishers for whom I’d like to mention. Because of their belief in me, my writing, and my story, I became an author for the first time. Thank you, Dear Father, for blessing me with a dream come true and leading me to Richard Griffin and Susan Alford, formerly of CPCC Press in Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition, I am thankful to Phyllis Wheeler and Suzanne Hartman at Castle Gate Publishing for changing my first two novels into e-books. By doing so, they nurtured and extended the lives of my first “book babies” — Richard’s Key and Roy’s Sandman.
My books are available by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org, Hear My Heart Publishing at hearmyheart.net, and on Amazon.com.
