About The Authors
From my early teens, I’ve wanted to be an author. I’ve always loved books—fresh new paper, shiny covers, and the ability to escape into fictional lives. But my road to becoming published was paved with doubt, rejections, and hours of darkness. I completed hundreds of pages as I wrote and searched, before becoming contracted for my first novella in 2014. I’m so grateful to God for giving this small-town girl the opportunity to use her words for His glory.
I love books that linger in the heart long after the last page, vintage coffee shops, museums that whisper of future stories, and time spent growing closer to family and friends. And I love my readers! People like you who take the time to stop by and connect.
This read consisted on four novellas with a time period spanning from 1608 to 1778, and focuses on the founders of our Great Country.
We are given a sweet romance in each of these locations, but we also get to walk in the shoes of these people who gave so much, and didn’t have easy lives.
From the Virginia Colony, where we ended up with the gift of the first child born in this Country, to the building of what would become Fort Independence in Massachusetts, to enlarging of Fort Oswego, a place near me and I have visited, and finally Fort Boonesborough, with Daniel Boone present!
As we journey with these individuals, we see the contributions and sacrifices these patriots made for us. The common thread in all of these reads is a love of God.
