I was excited to have my wait for The Reluctant Warrior come to an end. When I finished The Accidental Guardian I knew I wanted to read the rest of this series. Fortunately, the wait between stories was not too long. The saga of the Sierras continues with all my favorite characters […]

I do not stalk royalty on the internet (or in any other way!). I didn’t watch the royal wedding and can’t tell you much of anything about who the prince of which country is and honestly couldn’t even tell you what countries even still have royalty. Other than Great Britain, […]
As the shore faded away in the distance, I remembered a very important detail. I get seasick. Having not been on many boats in my life, it is easy to see why I would forget this important detail. The interesting thing about this is that if I can see land, […]
“These are like steak brownies!”
It is the strangest compliment I’ve ever gotten on my baking, but in some ways, one of the nicest.
I appreciate how from the very start I was pulled into the world of Mountain Home, Colorado, 1887. That is, after all, one of the reasons I read historical novels.
“I fell off a stepladder and broke my right foot and fractured my left wrist. Can you come out and help us?” my mom requested. I am fortunate to have a job that can be done remotely and a boss who allows it on occasion so I flew out the […]

Thinking to achieve a dramatic rescue, Peter grabbed a sword and swung. And accomplished nothing more than cutting off the ear of a minor servant. And earning a rebuke from the very one he wanted to save. Combined with the three denials that he even knew Jesus that occurred later […]
On Tour with Prism Book Tours What are things that make you afraid? Spiders? Being late for work? Sickness? Death? Sometimes the things we fear are just silly worry kinds of things and sometimes they are much more serious. I have a terrible fear of heights. It affects me in […]
One evening when I was in high school, I was just returning home. I started to turn down our short street and saw that there were fire engines all over the place and people milling about. My first thought was “I wonder which neighbor’s house is on fire.” Little did […]
Are you a convenience store type person, or a do-it-yourselfer? I’ve always had fun making things from scratch. For many years after I got married I enjoyed making bread and even my own sausage. I even bought casing and stuffed it, with the help of my fantastic Kitchen-Aid mixer attachments. […]
