New Food Theme!

I’ve decided to start blogging about one of my greatest passions—food. Over the next several months, I’ll feature food themes, along with recipes and fascinating facts about certain culinary treats I’ve tasted and enjoyed.

In a few days, I’ll start my first theme of “Deadline Dinners.” These are meals that I make when I’m on a book deadline and have very little time to cook. I’m not a huge fan of fast food or eating out a lot, so I’ve found ways to cut corners but still throw meals on the table that taste good and have plenty of nutrition.

My Wonderful Agent!

I’m excited to announce that my agent, Tamela Hancock Murray, is a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers Agent of the Year award. She’s amazing, and I sure hope she wins! If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t be writing Shades of the Past, a contemporary story set in the Mennonite community in Sarasota, Florida, for Heartsong Presents. My contract arrived last week, and I’m loving the research!
