The Inside Scoop!


Patrick Carr

and his epic fantasy

The Shock of Night

Bethany House


I grew up in…almost everywhere. My dad was in the Air Force and we moved a lot until I was about 10. After that, we settled in middle Tennessee.

I was inspired to write my first published novel by…a verse in the Bible that got me to thinking “What if the Church still cast lots to make decisions?”

The books that have most influenced my life are…The Bible, The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, and The Lord of the Rings…

Who is Rachel?

Rachel McMillan is a lifelong bibliophile. Her first crushes were on Jughead Jones and Sherlock Holmes. This might help explain while she is a 30-something singleton. Though originally from a quaint Canadian town, Rachel lives in Toronto where she works in Educational Publishing, pretends she is hip and urban but mostly enjoys hiding at home where she is currently watching boat-loads of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies.

Her debut novel, The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder

PTDFWfnl*** Thank you for your patience, dear reader friends! You may have noticed the blog went MIA for a few days, due to a web host issue that has finally been resolved, thanks as always to my terrific website manager and miracle worker ~ phew!

Are you a re-reader?

I’m not as much of a re-reader as I wish I was, mainly because as an author and a homeschooling mom, I often find that I’m tight on time. It seems like what I’m “re-reading” a lot of lately is whatever my kiddos are listening to on audio. It’s fun and now even my hubby can quote books like Little House on the Prairie and Anne of Green Gables! We can literally stand there and have an entire dialogue exchange without missing a beat.

But …

Told You So by Kristen Heitzmann


From the minute Grace Evangeline throws her sweet tea in Devin Bressard’s face, their battle of wits and cross-purposes overtakes their lives. Sassy “angelic” Grace Evangeline will stop at nothing to see her romance novel produced for Broadway. Devin Bressard knows all about the commercial success of Ms. Evangeline’s “novels”—as far from his literary, nerve-striking plays as anything could be.

Grace intends to pull his head out of the rarefied air long enough to make her point, even if it involves stalking him and infiltrating his friends and colleagues. Devin knows she’s trouble, but who would guess the spokesperson

Love’s Sure Dawn


I grew up in… Warren (just outside of Detroit), Michigan, USA, but now I live in northern Michigan just a few miles from the Lake Superior shoreline. It makes for much better scenery than Detroit!

I was inspired to write my first published novel by… My high school history teacher. I remember learning about the French Revolution and reading how the aristocrats who had the world at their fingertips lost everything overnight. Thus Sanctuary for a Lady was born, but it took me another decade …
