Reviewing 2012

I want to stop and thank all of you for helping make this such a great year! I enjoyed meeting so many friendly readers and authors! What a fast year! Book signings, road trips, speaking engagements, writing, edits, various meetings, and my second book was released in the Running Forward Series!

Let me take this time to tell you about the series. It is a powerful faith and family saga. The first book, Sin, Secrets, and Salvation began the Christian fiction of Susan Penleigh in the state of Washington. She is a Christian wife unequally yoked to a non-Christian husband. Her victorious journey through a shaky marriage is inspiring and suspenseful. Scripture helps her faith grow, and she is determined to be a survivor!

Book two, River Town, was released last week. The saga continues as Susan relocates to Texas in 2011 during the worst drought in history with terrifing wildfires, a new job at a high school, an arrogant boss, and troubled teenagers. The reader will have a clear understanding of a Christian viewpoint by her actions. It is a compelling page turner for both men and women!

Both books are available on and Kindle. Click on link to purchase. I tryed several links and cannot get any to work. Type in my name on and both books should pop up!

I'm busy writing Book Three to conclude the series. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I'm making plans for 2013 now!
The first book signing of 2013 is scheduled at the Waskom Public Library in Waskom, Texas, on January 20, 2013 from 2 pm till 3:30 pm. If you are in the area, please stop by!

It was so thrilling to receive awards this year for my work! I thank God and give Him all the glory! World Wide Who's Who awarded me Profesional of the Year 2012-2013 for Authorship. I made it to the finals in The Authors contest for 50 Great Authors You Should Be Reading! I am so excited by both! It makes me strive even harder with my craft!

As I prepare for Christmas, my heart and prayers go out to the Newtown, Ct. community. Such a horrible waste of lives!

Today, I made a huge pot of German potatoe soup...with sausage... from my grandfather's recipe. Wind is howling outside, gusts up to 40 miles an hour and forecast to be around 27 degrees tonight. How cozy inside my home! My 85 year old Mom is here and we will enjoy the soup! Christmas ham and trimmings will be later, but so treasure lazy evenings with those dear to my heart! If your family is like mine, we might be scattered around and have hectic schedules...but we are deep in each others hearts!
Merry Christmas to all! :)
