That really is like choosing your favorite child. Each novel is special to me in different ways for different reasons. Having said that...I’m pretty partial to Wooing Cadie McCaffrey. It was the first time I wrote from the perspectives of both the female and male leading characters. I had so much fun getting to know both Cadie and Will, and I loved sorting out their love story—as well as their faith story.(less)

And the answer is...no. But I was pretty proactive about that, because it has always been something in the back of my mind. I have been in personal contact back-and-forth with several of the real-life people who figure heavily in the series -- and several of them actually have copies of the books. That was important to me. I never wanted to be disrespectful, though I realize that in the minds of some, I could be walking a fine line.
Thank you so much for your question!(less)

2019 Wrap-Up…and a Little 2020 Vision

I don’t know about you, but when I look back on the past year, well…it exhausts me more than anything else. Amazing things happened in 2019 and I can’t necessarily point to any great personal tragedies, and yet I find myselfhoping, wishing, planning, and praying for a better 2020.

Truthfully, the battles waged in my life in 2019 were all pretty much happening within my mind. It was a year in whi...

“I have memories, but I don’t know if they are really mine or if I’ve just seen so many pictures. I think that I remember riding on his sailboat with him, and playing under his desk in the Oval Office, but those images are everywhere, so do I really remember them or just imagine how it all happened?”
Bethany Turner, Scenes From Highland Falls

“Abigail, my love for you is forever, you know that. Your love for Sergei is forever. But my love for Jill is as well. I don’t know how it works, but I do believe the human heart is capable of much more than we give it credit for sometimes.”
Bethany Turner, Scenes From Highland Falls

“I was done. I had loved my allotment. John, Chris, and Sergei. Those three men were the only men I would ever be in love with. I don’t think that Chris or I could have imagined at that moment, however, that never falling in love with anyone besides those three didn’t mean I would never fall in love again.”
Bethany Turner, Scenes From Highland Falls

“I lose keys because I never put any real effort into holding on to them, but I’ve spent most of my life trying to hold on to you, Phelps. I remember everything about you.”
Bethany Turner, Scenes From Highland Falls

“For once in your life will you just shut up and listen to what that man’s heart is trying to say to you?”
Bethany Turner, Two Thousand Years

“I don't believe in positive thinking as a replacement for God but as a response to God. My goal isn't that you would see your metaphorical cup as half full: I want you to see it as constantly overflowing!”
Levi Lusko, I Declare War: Four Keys to Winning the Battle with Yourself

“Nothing so influences your life as your ability to control your spirit in the midst of volatile feelings and the madness of life.”
Levi Lusko, I Declare War: Four Keys to Winning the Battle with Yourself

“Of course people will try to take a bite out of you when you dare to do something great--for many of them it will be the only taste of greatness they will ever have!”
