I pray that my books are a help on various levels. For one thing, due to the character-driven nature of my novels, my "story people," in many ways, are searching for universal truths, just as readers are. My hope and prayer is that the books I write will offer a faith-based solution to the problems of the human condition. Each of us must deal with the problem of pain and suffering, trials and tests on some level through the span of our lives. My stories offer the hope of the Gospel, that there IS a compassionate, personal God who sees our dilemma, and He cares and understands—and no evil force can separate us from that kind of God-love. It is a true gift, unconditional and available to anyone whose heart is open to divine truth.
