Calm Before the Storm is an Indie Award Winner!

I just found out Calm Before the Storm won an award today. Here's the email I just opened. I'm so excited and thrilled. My first indie award :) on behalf of the IBD Awards. It's featured on their homepage.

Vera Minette Brady left Louisiana six short years ago and never looked back. Heart ripped apart by a Louisiana man, she hadn't counted on her sister's illness to lure her back. There were times she missed Lake Pontchartrain, but not enough to return after her high school sweetheart ripped her heart asunder. She hadn't counted on a hurricane and her sister's illness to lure her back. She hated hospitals and wondered why a feeling of déjà vu iced through her veins and overpowered her each time she entered one. The truth was she knew why. She just didn't want to think about it.

Douglass Stevens, the owner of a construction company, wanted to construct something besides a building. He desired to rebuild the relationship he once enjoyed with Vera. Why did it seem something always got in the way? This time, he'd be a plant that wouldn't budge at the hospital, determined not to let her get away again.

Together, their path is littered with obstacles that threaten their very lives. They have to decide if it's God's will, hospital error, or someone playing God as they helplessly watch loved ones die. Will Douglass be strong enough to provide the support Vera needs through this storm in her life? Can their love weather the storms that rage against them both? First book in the Storms of Life trilogy. May be read as a stand-alone. Has a definite conclusion. Romance thriller. Romantic suspense.

Louisiana Deerhunter Missing in Manchac Swamp on Christmas Eve

Years ago, my children's father was a Louisiana deerhunter, my fodder for this story. He used to bring home the venison, and we'd have deer roast each New Year's Day, but this deerhunter may not make it home in time for Christmas. Only $2.99. June's deerhunter husband is missing in a Louisiana swamp on Christmas Eve. She prays for accident victims miles away in another parish while her own husband is missing and for her husband's safe return.

 June Russell is the daughter of a small-town Louisiana strawberry farmer determined to have a career besides her mother's berry farm.

 Andy Allen is a strawberry inspector at the local bureau whose interest in June has grown past business into more a personal one.

 But June's mother, Myrtle, thinks June can do better than a simple strawberry inspector. Worse, Myrtle's wild beliefs in anything superstitious appear almost prophetic when June and Andy are thrown time and time again into unexpected and life-threatening situations.

 A storm, an accident, escaped convicts, Andy missing in a Louisiana swamp.
Can love survive the obstacle course placed in their path? Can June and Andy overcome each trial with belief, faith, hard work, and the power of prayer?

 Available in paperback or ebook through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Sony, Kobo, and UK Link
