After a long, cold winter, spring is finally here. It’s a joy to watch all the feathered families in their birdhouses, prepare for their little ones.
I’m always amazed at the springtime beauty of new beginnings. As I look at the pretty flowers and budding trees, I thank the Lord for His masterful hand in painting a glorious tapestry of nature.
I'm sure spring has colored your yard with it's beauty. Isn’t God awesome!
As I write about new beginnings I think of my youngest grandson, Blake Leonard, he’s eleven. In 2017 he came to me with the inspiration for a novella. He says, “Nana, I have an idea for a book, and I know the title. Can we write it?”
I listened to his imaginary mind outline the plot and didn’t think much of it at the time. I’m under contract for a series, Celestial Investigation, so I’ve stayed busy writing book two and plotting book three.
I put off my grandson’s idea, too busy (I thought.)
One day he called me to the computer to show me some research he’d been doing for his book, that’s when my spirit stirred. I knew I had to help him on his project.
Days later, we began An Angel's Burden. Hopefully, it will be out, on Amazon sometime in May.
An Angel’s Burden
Deep in the forest, danger shadows two children.
Eleven-year-old Michael and his sister Caitlyn’s beloved pet Sparky, has went to Heaven.
Mom and Dad plan a camping trip to Indian Trails to lift their spirits.
An accident happens. The children have no choice but to find help.
A missed path has them lost. But that’s nothing compared to the lone cry of a white wolf stalking them.
Can the children face fear and continue on their journey to save Dad?
