Bethany Turner is the director of administration for Rock Springs Church in Southwest Colorado. A former VP/operations manager of a commercial bank and a three-time cancer survivor (all before she turned 35), Bethany knows that when God has plans for your life, it doesn't matter what anyone else has to say. Because of that, she's chosen to follow his call to write. She lives with her husband and their two sons in Colorado, where she writes for a new generation of readers who crave fiction that tackles the thorny issues of life with humor and insight.

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)

This popped up in my FB memories today. Something I wrote four years ago this month. The manuscript that kept being rejected became The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck.





God brought me together with the right editor (I ❤ you, Kelsey Bowen!), the right publisher (I ❤ you, Revell!), and eventually the right agent (I ❤ you, Jessie Kirkland!).





It didn’t happen the way I thought it would. It didn’t happ...

“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
