Today is the release of my second novel, The Thorn Keeper, and I'm so thankful for the reviews that have come out so far. Here's why.

Who’s Got Character with Siri Mitchell

My first introduction to contemporary fiction was reading Siri Mitchell’s fantastic novel, Kissing Adrien. I’d decided never to write a contemporary novel up to that point, but something about the humor, suspense, and excitement drew me in, not to mention Adrien and France. Two years later, I’d completed my first contemporary romantic comedy. Funny what… Continue reading Who’s Got Character with Siri Mitchell

Conference Tips with Siri Mitchell

One of my top FIVE historical authors is Siri Mitchell. Her books have a unique flavor to them with deep threads of faith interwoven through a colorful story. I love her contemporary novels too, but (to me) her historicals hold so much more depth. Siri is an encourager too. Five minutes with her will make you… Continue reading Conference Tips with Siri Mitchell

Conference Tips with Ruth Logan Herne

For the unpubbed author, there is nothing better than finding people who support and encourage you. People who teach and guide you. People who tell you the truth, critique with love, and have a snarky sense of humor. Ruth Logan Herne has been one of those people for me! One of the fabulous fifteen of… Continue reading Conference Tips with Ruth Logan Herne

Conference Tips with Ruth Axtell Morren

Why not follow Julie Lessman with her ACFW workshop partner, Ruth Axtell Morren. The first time I read one of Ruth's novels, I was moved to tears. Her portrayal of romance framed in by the grace of God was truly breathtaking. If you've never read her novels, I strongly recommend them - especially if you like… Continue reading Conference Tips with Ruth Axtell Morren
