Welcome! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukah! Happy Kwanzaa! Happy Solstice! Whatever you celebrate, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!
This year has seen a lot of ups and downs. In April, I finally published God of Chaos, the culmination of close to a decade's worth of writing and research. The Christian Women Writers Club, which was founded by author Jen Gentry in July 2015, has become more established and our routines are set. David and I published another Story Prompts for Kids book in October, and another is due out in December. But we have also had to deal with some personal setbacks. Summer was full of not-writing because of dealing with problems with ADHD medication. We have had to learn how to calm down when overstimulated, and I have had to deal with the joys that come with later-in-life food allergies. I have also had to start processing the idea that both of my grandmothers may not be here come New Year's Day, 2018.
But now, it is Christmastime again. A time for hope as well as a time of reflection. And for us, Christmas doesn't just mean Jesus' birthday, but also two others in our little family of three. My boys (husband and son) are turning 39 and 10 during the two weeks of Winter break! To celebrate all three birthdays, we're going to do a Hobbit Birthday Party -- we read The Lord of the Rings trilogy to David as a bedtime book this year -- I will be the one giving away the gifts!
I am giving away four of my own eBooks (four of your choosing, including those I wrote with David!) as well as a hardcover copy of my latest book, God of Chaos before it becomes available to the public! I am still putting the finishing touches on the print version now, and will get you a copy by the middle of January, a month before it is available to anyone else!
Just enter to win below! First prize is the hard copy (sorry, no international shipping). Second prize is the collection of four eBooks (gifted through Amazon). Information on the books available and synopses are all here on the website.

So, I'm supposed to write something about myself. Well, I am a Christ-follower, first and foremost; then a wife, now of 14 years; then a mom to a very busy almost-10-year-old; and then a writer. All of that, unfortunately, means my writing sometimes gets pushed to the back burner.
