Oh, was this bio day? Oops! I forgot. I was lost in my latest manuscript. Umm... bio. Yeah.

Hi! I’m Chautona Havig. (for those who care, that’s Shuh-TONE-uh HAVE-ig). Yeah. Just work with me here. I should have used a pseudonym, but when you grow up with a name like Chautona, it kind of sticks.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. ~ Hebrews 10: 23–25

Those aren’t just words on a page for me–they’re

What Book Showed Me the Great Author I’ve Been Missing Out On?

One of the best ways to temper the heaviness of a book dealing with hard subjects is the judicious use of humor.  Cynthia Ruchti is a new author to me (forgive my stupidity, won’t you?) but the brilliant use of humor to open Facing the Dawn set up a beautiful way to see the personality of a character before her world was turned upside down–genius.

Facing the Dawn should be on every women’s fict

“I will not wear a tulle-tailed dunce cap for anyone or for any reason.”
Chautona Havig, Princess Paisley

“Well, I think her exact words were, ‘Luke, sometimes I don’t wike you vewy much,’ so I just told her that I’d always love her very much.” ~Luke Sullivan”
Chautona Havig, Ready or Not

“The treetops swayed high above the mists along the edge of the forest known as Wynne Holt. Five boys, all in their twelfth year, lay on their stomachs peering through the grasses of the headland near The Point. They watched as the cloaked Creature, the Ge-sceaft, wandered through the shifting fog that intermittently smothered the field ahead of them. Its shadow faded and resurfaced as it roamed through the grasses; and at times, eerie noises-- almost like singing-- drifted to the edge of the cliff from where they watched. Angus, the oldest and brawniest of the lads, began telling tales that terrified and delighted the others. “It has horns, it does. That’s why it wears the hood so far over its face. The horns aren’t at the back; they’re near the front, and it uses them to tear up its food like an animal uses claws and fangs.” “What does it eat?” The other boys turned”
Chautona Havig, Shadows & Secrets

Kim  Gregory Chautona, I couldn't find the question section, so I'll ask it here. I absolutely loved, loved, loved Prairie. Highland wasn't as good, but I still really liked it and I am so longing for the next book to come out. Any inkling as to when that will be??? Love your books, Kim Gregory.

I actually discovered you and told my Bookworms on Spark People about you. I started reading Past Forward and had to tell my friends about it. We all got hooked on that series!


Pamela Hey Chautona...Thanks for accepting my friend request.
