Led by a series of dreams and encouraged by friends, I began the journey to become an author. I stored my work in a computer file labeled “second job.” Writing began as a passion I could not contain and has become much more than I ever expected.
Prophecy of the Flame - Book One became #1 on Amazon Kindle in 2010, shortly after Book Two released. There has been talk of a movie: I finished a rough of the screenplay for Book One in 2012.
But this was only the beginning:
As I prayed and meditated asking God what He wanted me to do next, He told me to write about what He has done in my life. I said, "But God, it's not done yet."
"Did not all my prophets write down what I told them before it came to pass?" He answered.
I shook my head and went to sleep. The next time I prayed God said, "Write the book."
"I am nobody... just a normal woman who You have done some amazing things to..."
"Write the book," He insisted.
This went on for a while. Finally I gave in, but not very graciously. I sat at my desk, pounding on the keys thinking, "Fine, you want me to write the book, let's get it over with and onto the next thing. I'll write the stupid book, but who will want to read it! No one..."
After three days of writing about my journey with God I began to remember how good He was to me. "At least this time I really know that this is what He wants me to do..." Every night I would pray and ask, "Have I forgotten anything?" Often He'd remind me of what to add.
It took two weeks to write 40,000 words. Angels Believe in You: The Journey that Led to Heaven and Back Again was edited and published in March of 2014.
To me, this book is about how good God is. It is the story of how I messed up time and time again and He was still with me doing miracle and miracle. He did some things that are right out of the book of Acts... often after I screwed things up!
The blog posts titled: To Heaven and Back Again continues the stories after Angels Believe in You. The first post is:
