Every moment I have to write is a gift to be snatched up before something else pulls me away from the keyboard. I also map out scenes in my head before I ever sit down at the keyboard to write. I create scenes driving, captioning, paying bills. It's the only way I can write at all. Time is so limited, my writing usually ends up being in the middle of the night.(less)

Great book for the YA reader. Was a great continuation of book #1 The Door, but could be read as a stand alone book."

Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis

“The Creator of the universe longs to have a relationship with me. He is my Husband, my Provider, and my closest Confidant as a single parent.

Lorilyn Roberts

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost

“You and I were created by God to be so much more than normal…Following the crowd is not a winning approach to life. In the end it’s a loser’s game, because we never become who God created us to be by trying to be like everybody else.”
Tim Tebow, Through My Eyes

“Sometimes God allows what he hates to accomplish what he loves.”
Joni Eareckson Tada, The God I Love

“Heartache forces us to embrace God out of desparate, urgent need. God is never closer than when your heart is aching.”
Joni Eareckson Tada
