A kind friend recently reminded me of some wisely spoken words, “all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage.”

Oh how I needed to hear that because over the last few weeks, I had to harness those twenty seconds daily as I worked on a new project–a celebration of love and life–that has been near and dear to my heart for a long time. And now, it is with absolute joy that I share with you that I have a novella coming this December. Today, I’m thrilled to share the cover with you plus, below are the details on how to pre-order!

For a long time, I’ve been thinking of writing about a character who’s always been very special to me–Lonnie’s Aunt Sarah from the Cadence of Grace series.

I’ve always wanted to tell her love story and recently, sat down with pen and paper to discover it. 

About This Quiet Sky:

There is nothing extraordinary about Tucker O’Shay’s dreams.

Go to college. Become president. Fall in love.

And pretend like he has enough time to get it all done.

Sixteen-year-old Sarah Miller doesn’t expect anything out of the ordinary when she begins her first day at the one-room-school house in her new hometown of Rocky Knob, but when she meets seventeen-year-old Tucker O’Shay—the boy with the fatal illness who volunteers to tutor her in algebra—she finds herself swept up in a friendship that changes the way she sees the world and a love that changes her life.

This Quiet Sky is a different kind of romance and one that I hope will honor the hearts out there that know a different kind of happily-ever-after. Those who found an unfolding of love that didn’t turn out as the story books declare it should…and sought the blessings in it anyway.

As a writer, I want to do more than search for beautiful stories;

I want to find the beauty in the stories that life gives us.


The novella is scheduled to release on December 18th and is available on Kindle for $2.99. You can pre-order it by clicking here.

Nook and Paperback details coming soon!
