Christian author, inspirational speaker and chaplain
This year I am continuing to work on my Bateman Family novels and I am delighted to reveal their new covers. Daughters of Love and Light have done a brilliant job with covers that make my heart sing.
Framing Fleur was released in April this year and the plan is to release Book 4 in October.
The other exciting development is that my books are now available as eBooks through Amazon.
Covid 19 has affected the ability to run events and launch my books, but life is slowly getting back to normal so that I am able to launch Framing Fleur.
I am also looking forward to running writing workshops again. I am excited to have been invited to run a 3-hour Fiction Writing workshop at the Jugiong Writers' Festival in May. If you're interested in attending, here is the link:
What is the most useless gift you have ever received? Mine would have to be this 2020 planner, as beautiful as it is:
None of us could have imagined how this year would turn out, but I praise God that His wonderful mercies really are new every morning.
From losing my eyesight for a time and then God miraculously restoring it (you can read about it in this blog post: ) to having book releases delayed due to Covid 19, I have learned more than ever that our God makes all things beautiful in His time and I just need to wait and trust.
I have not had a book launch for 'Saving Beth', the latest release in my Bateman Family Novels, due to restrictions on gatherings here in Australia and the release of 'Framing Fleur' has been delayed until some time in 2021.
But I am still writing. It's something I simply can't help doing. I love it. It refreshes me, gives me a way to express all that is going on in my heart and mind. It feels as necessary as breathing. Creativity is such a gift and I know God has called me to use it, to continue to gain inspiration from Him and to reach those He has called me to reach with words of life and hope.
May you know God's blessings and direction in your life in a new and special way this year!
