The Story

I reminded myself that once you start to defend someone, it’s difficult to find a place to stop. But I went ahead and took that first step anyway. . .
For President Teddy Roosevelt, controlling the east-west passage between two oceans mattered so much that he orchestrated a revolution to control it. His command was to ’let the dirt fly’ and for years, the American Zone of the Panama Canal mesmerized the world, working in uneasy co-existence with the Panamanian aristocrats.

Dana Mentink: The Inside Scoop!

dana-mentinkI grew up in Northern California where the weather is awesome and the cheese is divine!

I was inspired to write my first published novel by a life adjustment! I took a leave from teaching elementary school to be a stay at home mom. I missed the creativity, so I took a writing for publication class and that was the beginning of a career that has spanned thirty five books so far!

The books that have most influenced my life are the Bible and Mrs. Mike. Actually, I have a ton of books that have influenced my life, but …

More ACFW pics!

Apologies for the delayed posting, friends! Here are some more wonderful memories from ACFW – actually from before the conference began. Tamara Leigh and I had the pleasure of dropping in on the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat, fabulously led by bloggers Annie, Bonnie, and Carrie. It was great fun to meet authors, readers, and bloggers who we adore. Amy Messer, who encourages me every time she posts a comment on my blog, was simply delightful. I think hugging her and hearing her squeal for joy just about made my year! Kara, too.

I hope you enjoy these pics, despite me …

ACFW 2016: Nashville

Hello dear friends!

After 30 hours of delays, flights, and running through airports with my dear friend Dorothy Adamek, I’ve now been in Nashville for three days. It’s been a whirlwind few days and ACFW formally commenced today! I’ve had a wonderful time with my dear friend Ronie Kendig, walking the streets of a very humid city! Thought I’d share some pics for you to enjoy, and there’s more to come. I’m pretty weary from the long flight, the fun chats, the walking around downtown Nashville, and the excitement of it all. It’s so good to be amongst people who …
