Shadowed by Grace takes you on a tour of Italy with the Monuments Men and a woman photographer who's on a hunt for her father. Either would be a great place to start! Thanks for asking.(less)

Then Christian fiction was very small, and my favorite authors simply didn't write fast enough for this voracious reader. So I started writing two novels that will never see the light of day! But that desire to write never disappeared. Then in my early thirties God gave me the green light to start writing. It's been a whirlwind ever since. Thanks for asking!(less)

“We're seniors."
"I know," I said
"So aren't you... curious?"
"About what?"
"About life. Out there. Life!" she said again. "Tell me, Cameron Ann Morgan, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
We'd reached another door, and I stopped and looked up at the camera that monitored the entrance, just as I whispered, "Alive.”

Rick Warren
“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”
Rick Warren
