Occasionally, I might have to slug my way through a scene because it isn't flowing the way I like. Many times in that case, I will go ahead in the story to a scene that is more clear in my mind. That usually helps, and I can go back to the other scene later.(less)

Kellersburg Revisited

In 2010 and 2011, Love Inspired published three of my books, which they called the Kellerville series. I received the rights back to those books and have since reissued them as the Kellersburg series. The titles of the books are the same, but not the series name. The books also have new covers.
