"... why not consider #Pinterest as an entirely new venue to make friends?" #writing #SocialMedia
Books rank #14 for what women find “pinteresting” while Food/Drinks rank #1.* Not bad news for writers, but how can we capitalize on this information? If your books involve any food/drinks, it wouldn't hurt to pin some delicious looking food items to your book boards.

We may have our own ideas for the writing paths we want to take, but sometimes God has other plans. Sometimes, God points in a different direction—and that's exactly what he did when he gave author Pat Broomfield Bradley her divine assignment. Enjoy! ~ Dawn. On Divine Assignment ...

Not just for #writers: "Sow the seeds God entrusted to you. Let Him worry about the outcome." #Faith
Have you ever reached a point in your writing journey where you wondered if what you were doing even mattered? Are you there now? I've attended too many funerals recently. Although none were famous Rock Stars, I found out each person was uniquely gifted at something. One quiet little saint was ...

Not just for writers: What are your simple joys? 
I was standing in the bus line at the intermediate school where I am assistant principal, loading children onto a small bus that heads to an after-school program, when one of the pre-school boys in the second seat turned to me with the cutest gap-toothed smile. I winked at him through the window ...

Writers: Are you paying attention to what you are reading? #amwriting
This is an article to ask you this question: Are you paying attention to what you are reading? To put it another way, when you read, do you analyze the writing? Do you notice the good, the bad and the…not-so-good? I'm presently reading a novel which promised “suspense” and a “dabbling into the ...

The Easter season has inspired me to consider the way my writing has evolved over the years. At the intersection of the pew and the main aisle of my church, I found a purpose. I found the means by which to fulfill a call on my heart that existed long before I was fully able to acknowledge it, ...

Tagline
Creates characters with heart...stories for the soul.
Introduction

I write for the Christian market. Maybe you've seen some of my short stories like the one in the book Family Ties: Thirteen Short Stories (seen above). Lately, I've been writing novels. I'm especially fond of the second half of the 19th century. Gotta love those cowboys!
 
I spend hours reading. You can keep up with my bookshelf by clicking the Goodreads link. Also, you can visit my website for reviews and other information on Christian books, and/or join me on Twitter.
 
Other hobbies: gardening (except in the hottest part of summer), PBR (gotta love those cowboys!), NASCAR, NFL (Go, Panthers! Go...oh yeah, Cowboys!), antiquing, and old movies.
