Connilyn Cossette is a Christy Award and Carol Award winning author whose books have been found on both ECPA and CBA bestseller lists. When she is not engulfed in the happy chaos of homeschooling two teenagers, devouring books whole, or avoiding housework, she can be found digging into the rich ancient world of the Bible to discover gems of grace that point to Jesus and weaving them into an immersive fiction experience. Although she and her husband have lived all over the country in their twenty-plus years of marriage, they currently call a little town south of Dallas, Texas their home.

Sinai and concludes with the story of a Canaanite women who is taken captive by the Hebrews, ending with the fall of Jericho. The series basically tells the story of the Exodus from "outsider" perspectives. Hope that helps! (less)

Thankfully, I am a history nerd and love to get lost on historical rabbit trails! (less)

Beth
Beth is on page 125 of 349 of Shadow of the Storm: That moment when you could punch a character in the face, if you had those sort of tendencies, course. I mean, I'd at least stick my tongue out at her as she walked away. And maybe tell her to kiss my grits.

“Yahweh is the creator of all that there is. He is the most real thing, the only eternal thing. Our hearts will stop beating, our eyes will close, the mountains may someday crumble, the trees will wither away, but Yahweh will always be.”
Connilyn Cossette, Counted with the Stars

“There is no army, no fortress, no giant that can stand against our God. No one. I have seen with my own eyes. I have walked through the bottom of the sea. On dry ground. I have watched as he humiliated Egypt and brought the mighty Pharaoh low.”
Connilyn Cossette, Wings of the Wind

“Someone once told me that Yahweh would make himself known to me, if I searched. And he did. Perhaps he will make himself known to you.”
Connilyn Cossette, Wings of the Wind

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

“We are artists. We are writers—slightly neurotic and probably addicted to coffee, late nights, sunsets, laughter, tears, and heartache. Creativity is our drug. We lose ourselves in the smell of old books. We’re bewildered by how we can live in a world this full of glory and grief and not be awestruck every moment. And we write stories to help wake people up before they fall asleep for good.”
Steven James, Story Trumps Structure: How to Write Unforgettable Fiction by Breaking the Rules

“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”
James Michener
