She left home to get away from betrayal. She returns to escape failure. Can she move forward and leave the past behind?
Officer Ada Blake is desperate to regain her confidence after an on-the-job incident left her doubting and despondent. When she returns home after a long absence seeking peace and quiet, she finds her mother on the brink of bankruptcy, a brother creating long distance havoc and a disapproving sister. Can she overcome the sense of failure that follows her from her job in the city to her small hometown where she is haunted by past betrayals, inexplicable threats to her life, and appeals from the woman who took away the one thing she wanted most? Can the handsome nerd-turned-hunk from next door help her find the way past failure and guilt? Can she reconcile the past with the present and find peace?

Think of how you feel about getting up in the morning to splashes of glorious color in the sky, or how you feel about your faith, your partner sleeping beside you, or the quirks of life that make you smile… or cry. That is the essence of Lines, Poetry in Notion. Poetry is for everyone. Yes, even you. It tells a story from beginning to end, in many verses or in one. It speaks to the heart and stirs the mind to contemplation or tears, or anger, or love, or any one of a dozen other reactions that invite you to explore something about yourself.

25 Days of Christmas, An Advent Journey ($7.50 plus tax and shipping)
25 Days of Christmas, An Advent Journey rejoices in the birth of Christ through poetry. Words and phrases that evoke Advent, a time of expectant waiting for the Child of Wonder, inspired each poem. The accompanying scripture reflects on the promises of old, when prophets spoke of a Son, a King, a birthplace, a promise. These brief verses will bring joy to readers who want to take a moment out of busy holiday preparations to remember who we claim as our Redeemer King, and why we celebrate His birth. Add your thoughts and prayers, perhaps your own poems, in the white space entitled “Your Thoughts.” 25 Days of Christmas, An Advent Journey contains poems in the acrostic style with the first letter of each line based on the title. The poems were shared on One Roof Publishing in December 2015. A friend asked if the poems would be available in printed format. The seed was planted and has grown to be this small offering of celebration. Merry Christmas, Christ is born! Click here to read one of the poems from the book.
