April Hayman lives in the high desert of California with her husband and their three sons. During the day, she focuses on homeschooling the boys and working on client projects. She writes at night when the temperature outside is only somewhat cooler than during the day.

April collects fountain pens, has too many pen pals (and always looking for more), journals sporadically, creates art when she can squeeze it in, and hordes stationery.

I liked this newest entry into Alana Terry's Alaskan Refuge series. The story was quick paced and paralleled by an affirming message about God's love for His children and our trust should be in Him alone.

The main character, Jade, had real fears about

This is a strange book. On one hand, it's a coming of age tale and a dysfunctional family. On the other, it includes magic that contributes to that dysfunction, directly and indirectly. It's also a tale about being okay with being alone and using the ...more

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Mother Teresa
“I'm a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.”
Mother Teresa

Neil Gaiman
“October knew, of course, that the action of turning a page, of ending a chapter or of shutting a book, did not end a tale. Having admitted that, he would also avow that happy endings were never difficult to find: "It is simply a matter," he explained to April, "of finding a sunny place in a garden, where the light is golden and the grass is soft; somewhere to rest, to stop reading, and to be content.”
Neil Gaiman, Season of Mists
