is a fictional town. But it is very much like so many small towns in the state of Kansas that are becoming only a memory. This series of four books has been very popular, and they are pretty special to me as well. The Barton women are like part of my family. I cried with sadness and despair, and rejoiced with them down through the years. I learned a lot while writing this set of books. Not only in the area of research in writing historical books, but in my Christian walk as well. So many readers have identified with the Barton women and their very real struggles.
For the month of November, I want to share these books with you. With the start of your work week, each Monday a book will be available for FREE! Get your free ebook for the entire week!
A Place to Call Home, the first book in the series will be available for FREE on Monday, November 4th through Friday, November 8th at midnight. Please leave a review when you have finished reading it, and let me know what you thought. It doesn’t need to be long or detailed. Just a few words is greatly appreciated.
Writing has always been a love of mine. Except for school reports! I didn't cherish those moments. I began with poems in grade school, and short little stories that I illustrated. I created something for each family celebration, and probably wore my family out. But I graduated to a longer 'book' by the time I was 18. Following traditional romance novel writing, I pounded out a pretty cheesy story on a Royal typewriter I had found at a garage sale. You didn't worry about your nails when using one of those! When our first four children were still young, I wrote my first full-length book back in 1998. I followed it with three more in that series. Those are my current WIP, needing many updates and editing before I give them to my editor to slash to bits. But the books are always much better with her advisement and help! Currently, I have nine published books.
My husband and I have been married for thirty-eight years and we have five children and nine grandchildren. I've been a homeschooling mom, Sunday school teacher, AWANA director and a pastor's wife. I've worked as a CNA and an Activity Director. When I'm not busy writing...which I love, BTW, I'm working on home projects, marketing and attending events, where I love to meet you...my readers!
