Ephesians 2:10 (KJV)
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
Christian authors hold a dear place in my heart. As a child of God I understand the calling to glorify our savior in the pages of our books. This week I'd like to highlight Tracy Wainwright, a talented author and speaker. Tracy, please tell us a little about your life.
I am first and foremost a child of God, wife, and mother of four precious children. I've been writing since 2005, having been called to do so supernaturally. God took this girl who couldn't stand research papers and essay tests and gave me a love for the written word. I cut my teeth writing for local newspapers and magazines and have been published several times in national magazines. Now I write nonfiction, fiction, children's, young adult, and adult books. I enjoy most genres. Additionally, I speak in a variety of settings: to women's groups, writers groups, and conferences. I direct the Abundant Life Conference for Women, held each fall in the beautiful, historic Williamsburg, VA.
Tracy, has written several novels, Riding The Wind is her most recent book and promises to be a wonderful read.
Dana Little has just adjusted to life in Smalltown, TX when things start going awry. Her boyfriend's brother is in a tragic bull-riding accident and then a friend is killed in a car accident. She's barely caught her breath from shock when her boyfriend, Bo, is accused of murder. She struggles to clear his name while battling with whether to trust God again. Will her faith be rekindled? And if so, how will she explain it to her hostile-to-anything-religious boyfriend?
Here's an excerpt from Riding the Wind.
A noise in the hallway caught Dana’s attention. Several heads turned towards the door, straining to see through the small window. Her stomach lurched when a man walked by. It was the older, quiet officer that had come by Bo’s house. Bo passed by the window next, followed closely by Young, Arrogant cop.
Her heart thudded and her hands quaked furiously. Dropping the pencil, she looked desperately around the room. Twenty-three pairs of eyes stared back at her. She slid out of her desk, wove through the rows of desks, and threw open the door, ignoring her teacher’s reprimand.
His hands were cuffed behind his back. He and the officers stopped and looked back at her.
“What’s going on?”
Bo’s jaw twitched, but Dana saw something in his eyes she’d never seen before.
“It’s nothing. A misunderstanding.” His slumped shoulders told her he didn’t believe his own words.
“It’s no mistake, Ma’am. We’re charging Bo Singer with the murder of Stacy Athens.”
I hope you enjoyed that little tease as much as I did. You can find Riding the Wind at:
