ABOUT THE BOOK
Wrapped in God’s Grace is a memoir of three stories: the first of a woman petitioning God to provide her with a child and the trials that followed the miraculous adoption, the second of a man and woman destined to meet and marry after surviving the horrors of Armenia in 1915, and finally, a divorced school teacher who arrives in a small Wisconsin town with her young daughter searching for answers.
These stories are bound together as an illustration of how the intricacies of God’s plans – once released through our surrender – produce blessings beyond belief!
ABOUT THE BOOK

There are days that she lives by simply putting one foot in front of the other. The drama that unfolds, at times, is unbelievable. From the eldest child to the youngest, the anxieties are obvious. Lilly finds herself at times unable to interact and is often heard reciting cliché’s, words she lived by, ”When it rains, it pours, A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush, It’ll All Come Out in the Wash.” Lilly is strong, resilient and loyal, and her inner strength causes her to persevere.

“Unsuspected” – New Crime Novel
The story was inspired by the true account of eleven women whose bodies were discovered buried in shallow graves in a desert region on the West Mesa in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The women are believed to have been prostitutes and known drug users, but the police had very little forensic evidence to go on and did not release whatever information they had. The investigative leads dried up and the murderer was not identified.
TALES FROM A BOILING POT is an invitation to explore the life of a child of the South through a series of intimate short stories. Cindy’s first writing endeavor, it shows the journey from being born in a dysfunctional and often violent environment, to how she learned to maneuver the dangerous waters with the skill of a sailor bringing her boat into safe harbor during a storm. Rather than choosing to become a part of the dysfunction and a casualty of life, unlike the boiled frog, she used her internal strength, life lessons and the love of her husband Bill as a light to guide her home. With humor as a backdrop, she shares her love of the South, the family that raised her and the friends she has come to know as family.

Much has been written about the “wounded warriors” but not enough about the “wounded waiters.” At the tender age of 22, Mary Stevenson sat in federal court and heard the judge pronounce a 30 year sentence on the man she loved. Years of more waiting for his release from prison ensued, but that trauma is what pushed her onto her spiritual path to change her life for the better.
