Sneak Peak

In honor of entering my first writing contest for my manuscript, I thought it would be a good idea to tell you all about my book.  Makes sense:)  First off, huge thanks to Darcy Holsopple for taking my author picture.  It's nice to know talented people...and even better when you are related to them!  I thought it would be a little more professional than a picture of me with a kid on each hip.  Secondly, huge thanks to Shannon Rose for sitting down and going over titles upon titles with me for my book...until I found the perfect one.  I appreciate your encouragement and advice:)  Last but not least, another shout out to my awesome editor, Susan Begay...without you there would never be a comma in the correct place:)

Here is the sneak peak!  My book would be placed under the category of inspirational romance/suspense.  Imagine you are reading the back of the book...

A Rescued Heart

Death comes in many forms…her death was a love squelched by rejection…

Kindergarten teacher Ava Williams’ life is forever changed when she is left heartbroken when her groom never shows up for the wedding.  The rejection cuts deep and she dreads her unexpected life that is now doomed by entanglements of lies and fear.  Yes, she would survive, but at what cost?  Would she ever let herself love again?

SWAT officer Matt Thompson lives for saving and protecting others, but can he rescue Ava from herself?  For him it’s love at first sight, and convincing Ava to trust him and prove to her his love is real and unending is a battle worth fighting.

While Ava begins to break free from the bondage of her past she discovers that a student’s mom is suffering from her own bondage of domestic abuse.  Ava’s determination to help becomes complicated when she is caught up in the tragedy that begins to unfold.  Can Ava help her find freedom and God before it’s too late?

Ava’s life is in danger.  Matt’s team is called in and he is determined to save her…even if it costs him his own life.
