I am thrilled to announce that my Christian novel, Promise’s Prayer, is set to release for Kindle and paperback on March 18, 2017!
Kaelan is restless for adventure and relentless in his efforts to bring the land of Taerna back to the blessings of Adon Olam and the prosperity of the days of his ancestors. Fueled by a solemn promise and his mother’s secret, he finds himself in the forefront of a desperate scheme that is crucial to Taerna’s future. Can he keep his promise? Can he save the people of Taerna from the corruption and rampant lawlessness that threaten them with extinction?
Shy and quiet Carita knows she possesses what Taerna’s people so desperately need. But how can she help them when her own soul is simultaneously tormented by witnessing unmet needs and handicapped by her own paralyzing fears?
When Kaelan and Carita come face to face with the true nature of Adon Olam’s call, will they each choose to embrace Adon Olam’s plan for Taerna—and for their own lives?

And here’s a sneak peek of one of my favorite interactions between Kaelan and his siblings.
“Kaelan’s home!” screamed Liliora, dropping the trowel she held and racing to Kaelan with her arms stretched wide. He caught her up and tickled her, giving her a hug and grinning as her contagious little-girl laugh chuckled at him.
“Hi, Lili. Did you miss me?”
“Of course I missed you,” she grinned, nestling into his arms and beating her small fists lightly on his shoulders. “We’re helping Carita. I get to dig in the dirt, and plant the seeds, and—and—and cover them up, and then they will grow tall,” she threw out her hands, “and we will pick them, and Carita will eat them all up, in the winter.”
“Sounds like fun.” Kaelan played with her hair. “I’ve been digging in the dirt and planting seeds, too. Where’s Laelara?”
“She’s inside with Carita,” Liliora told him in her childish way. “They are very busy. They have lots to do. They have been busy, too. You should see what they’ve done at our house. They—”
“Kaelan!” Kelton cut her off. “You should have been here for the fishing. It was some of the best ever after the rains came.” He tossed a fist-sized ball high into the air before catching it again.
“My cat had kittens while you were gone,” Kethin cut in. “There were four of them. One was gray, one was gray and white, and two were orange and white. I like the gray and white one best. I named them all yesterday!”
“Sounds like a lot happened while I was gone,” Kaelan grinned. “And you’re working in the garden now? You’ll be expert gardeners before you know it!”
