Jesus My Lord and Savior

What do I title this for today? My fingers have been flying over the keyboard with words coming from my Lord and Savior. I cannot do anything without Him. I pray my words bring glory to His name.

The book about Katie is coming together and I can't get the words out fast enough. Katie has so much to tell of her life. I wish I had known her myself but through my findings maybe I will know her.

Now back to the writing.

Dallas Conference

Last week end I went to my first American Christian Writers Conference in Dallas. Instructors were Gail Gaymer Martin, Lin Johnson, Jerry Hopkins and Frank Ball. I highly suggest to anyone to go to a conference with any one of these professionals. I walked away with brain over load because of all the information I was given. There was also personal time with Gail and Lin. I was given an abundance of great helpful information for my novel. Now the big job takes place! I have to put all the information to good use and get it done right!

I look forward to my next conference by ACW. Reg and Eleanor Forder put together a wealth of books for the bookstore and with their choice of instructors. Thank you Reg and Eleanor.

Deadly Wilderness

I started reading Kelly Irvin's new book "Deadly Wilderness". Her prologue got me going so much I had to read on. The setting is San Antonio, Texas and is about murder and romance. One page will lead to two and on and on. I haven't finished it yet (slow reader) but can't wait to pick it up again. Great book Kelly........keep them coming.

Reading New Books

This is long overdue and I apoligize to Mary DeMuth. Her memoir "Thin Place" was very intimate and gut renching. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has been physicial abused, mentally abused, or verbally abused. Mary described her deepest feelings and how she has overcome and she has done that through Christ Jesus. Pick up her book and follow her adventure from a child to adulthood. You won't regret it.
