The recent bad news for me is that the Harlequin line: Heartsong Presents (HHP) that I write for has been discontinued. No more contracts in that direction. Other authors lose out and the editor will soon be looking for a new job.

I've been working on a three book series with HHP in mind. With this news, it is difficult to stay motivated to continue writing. But I will. I try to finish what I start. Who knows where these books might end up.

I am glad I have other venues for my writing...

THE GOD CONNECTION is available in Kindle and print at Amazon as well as the print version from the publisher. Check Non-fiction for more information.


Fear makes us crazy, frightened and doing things for all the wrong reasons. Click on the devotional link below for THE TRUTH ABOUT FEAR.

When the NIH screams about needing more of our hard-earned money, check where their funding goes. Click below to read my latest Hub column "Where is the Ebola research money?"

So far two letters to the editor have gone after my Ebola article, though neither one disputes what I present. The first did not like my source--too conservative, the second also missed the point that accountability is needed to force NIH to provide $ to studies that save lives.

What is prayer all about? It is more than demands. It is about the focus of our heart. Click on the link below to read my poem "Not Just Another Day."

The print and Kindle versions available. Check FICTION for "The Darkan Conspiracy." A fantasy-adventure, sword and sorcery novel.

About the Author

Writing has been my life since I first picked up a pencil before I entered school. I learned the alphabet and the word AT. After that I went down the alphabet rhyming words. It was intoxicating! 

By the time I left third grade, I was writing stories and knew one thing--I wanted to be a writer. (I also wanted to be a jockey, before there were women jockeys. I was deep into the Walter Farley "Black Stallion" books.) 

I geared my education to become a writer. In high school I won writing awards and sold my first short story. During college I began selling my stories and articles. I graduated with a comprehensive degree in Journalism--a very good foundation for any type of writing. 

Now, many books later, some traditionally published, some with small publishers and some self-published, I still write for my career. (Some of those books won awards.) I have a regular column in a regional newspaper. I write short articles for Internet clients. And still develop book projects. 

What I write reaches all ages. Interesting how, as my own children grew up, I wrote stories for their different ages and stages. I write both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and historical, mystery, fantasy and even romance. I also write about the moral, cultural and political issues of the day.

 I write from a caring, life-affirming, Christian perspective. You'll find here books and writing to challenge, convict, encourage and lift up. 

Enjoy the journey. CRS
