Don’t Let Their Stories Die

Memorial Day is a time to remember: In 2000, I got my idea for what came to be my first historical novel, From Dust and Ashes.

These men then invited me to attend the 59th reunion of their division. I wasn’t expecting that at all. I thought they’d point me to a {Read More}

How to Know the Truth | Guest Post {+ Giveaway}

Truth. Some say it’s all relative, but let’s face it, those people are kind of missing the entire definition of “truth.” When something is true it inherently means that everything else that contradicts it is not true. Truth is absolute, correct, accurate. It does not bend to feelings or changes in culture, it simply is. Truth is also generally not popular opinion.

Inwardly I chuckled, thinking of many recipes I tweak, or dishes I prepare without a recipe, Amelia-Bedelia style: “A little of {Read More}

Then, in spite of our best efforts at positivity or affirmation, we can’t escape the insecurity and aloneness we experience as a result. When it comes to this epidemic {Read More}
