Early in the writing of my third novel,Seven Wings to Glory, I reached out to watercolorist, Jenny Zovein, whose work I’d admired on Facebook. Her whimsical style appealed to me and I wondered if she could paint a few scenes to inspire me as I worked to bring the story to life. I was on a tight deadline. She agreed and we arranged a time to discuss the project by telephone. Each time she sent me a completed painting, I propped it up in front of my computer and felt the spirits of my characters come to life.

On the eve of my husband’s surgery to remove a pancreatic cyst, two quilters from our church’s quilt group dropped by the house to present this “prayer quilt” to Tom. Ellen Boston and Pauline McCallum told Tom to wrap himself in its warmth and to know that he is loved and cared for.
As we gathered in a small circle in our living room and Ellen began to pray, Tom lifted the quilt to his heart and opened himself to prayer.
Many thanks to so many people who’ve reached out to us these past few weeks.
