The Story

Amid open fields and empty pews, small towns can crush big dreams.

Abandoned by his no-good father and forced to grow up too soon, Noble Burden has set his dreams aside to run the family farm. Meanwhile, James Horton, the pastor of the local church, questions his own calling as he prepares to close the doors for good.

As a severe storm rolls through, threatening their community and very livelihood, both men fear losing what they care about most . .

Bookish Question of the Week

BookishQu250Have you noticed the trend towards novel serialisations? A number of publishers and authors are providing readers with an ongoing story, just like television series, where usually novella length episodes are released in short intervals, some monthly, bi-monthly and the like.

The first novel serialisation I read was Ronie Kendig’s Operation Zulu Redemption, and what a brilliant introduction it was! Each episode was jam packed with action, adventure, danger, and ongoing character development which I loved. On a side note, Operation Zulu Redemption will finally be released in paperback this coming July – how good is that?

I grew up in… Tacoma, Washington.

I was inspired to write my first published novel by… I spent a lot of time in the public library when I was a kid, reading every book I could get my hands on. I still remember looking at the rows of shelves and feeling incredibly fortunate that I had access to all of these books for free. It became a dream of mine to “give back” by adding books to those shelves for future readers. …

Are you a re-reader?

I was when I was younger, for sure! I would read all of my favorite books over and again—L. M. Montgomery’s books (all of them—I think I’ve read every single one of hers at least 3 times), Lori Wick’s books . . . These days, my reading time is far more scarce (I homeschool my kids, which takes a lot of my day!), so I don’t do much re-reading. Although I will occasionally listen to an audio book of a novel I’ve already read. I …
