Still Life in Shadows has arrived!

Oh, happy day! My fifth novel, Still Life in Shadows, has made her debut! First, what a great cover! Next, I love breathing in the printed pages.

To celebrate this novel's entry into the literary world, I am giving away a few items. Want to join in the giveaway? All you have to do is join me on my Facebook Author Page, click LIKE and then proceed to the discussion that is going on. It's simple! Just answer the discussion question: Have you ever run away from home? What did you take with you?

Why do I ask this question? It does pertain to my novel. Gideon Miller ran away from his Amish home in Carlisle, Pennsylvania to Twin Branches, North Carolina. He carried one duffle bag. Now he helps other Amish youth relocate to English life in the modern world.

As a child, I often threatened to run away from home. Once I packed my red suitcase with the pink interior and set out to run. Of course, I was probably mad at my parents for something they'd done that I felt was unjust. I didn't get far. I think I sat on my suitcase about a block from our house for a bit and then got hungry, and walked home.

Head over to my Author Page and join us! Once you leave a comment there, you have entered the contest. I'm giving away the following and winners will be randomly picked by August 15th. Have fun!


1. A pack of Songs From Heaven postcards
2. Two "Memories Warmed by the Heart" magnet
3. A pack of A Grateful Heart Dances postcards
4. Down the Cereal Aisle cookbook

I'm so excited to read this book! From a theological perspective I'm so glad to see someone tackling this issue. It has really been needed.

I never ran away but my middle daughter did. she was just a little thing. she packed up a bag and left. I found her hiding under a lilac bush. She stayed there longer than I thought she could.
Thanks for the chance to win your book. God bless you.

Yes I ran away as a kid. Hid in the horse pasture near us and waited for a friend to pick me up.
Stayed away for w day then came home.

yes...I ran away twice. Payback came when my oldest son and daughter ran away. Both times, they said they weren't mad at us...merely upset with school situations. When I ran away, I was mad at the whole world. Including my parents. Both times, someone convinced me to go back home. I was lucky. God showed me running away from things doesn't help. Rather we should run to Him.
