In real life and in the books I write, it seems life and love are always on a collision course. Romance can get pretty messy when life and love collide. So here on my blog, I hope you'll find a little fun, a little inspiration, and lots of reasons to hop

CFBA Review: WINGS OF GLASS, by Gina Holmes


This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing Wings of Glass Tyndale House Publishers (March 1, 2013) by Gina Holmes MYRA'S NOTE: I only recently obtained Gina's new book and haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I well remember how much I loved her debut novel, Crossing Oceans. Gina has a gift for creating endearing characters and evoking rich layers of emotion, and I can't wait to delve into her next story!

In 2005 she founded the influential literary blog, Novel Journey now called Novel Rocket and she is also the founder of Inspire The Fire.

CFBA Review: MEMORY OF MURDER, by Ramona Richards


This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing Memory of Murder Love-Inspired Suspense by Ramona Richards MYRA'S REVIEW: Since Ramona is my new editor at Abingdon Press, I was excited to have a chance to read her latest release. She's a skilled writer and storyteller, and definitely has a flair for suspense! The romance develops with sweet subtlety as Deputy Jeff Gage does everything in his power to protect petite cafe owner Lindsey Presley from the man from her past who wants her dead. But Lindsey is no wimpy heroine, and the solution to this mystery/suspense does not disappoint. An enjoyable read from a fine author (and a really nice editor, too!). ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A word from Ramona: The hardest biographical sketch to write is always your own, whether or not you’re a writer by profession. You can’t decide what to throw in, what to leave out, and whether or not you should list strengths and flaws, or just strengths. I like writing and telling stories so much that I once tried to live out a few. After getting a master’s in English, I went on to be the seneschale of my local Society for Creative Anachronism. I had a rocky start, but I did get better. (Robin Hood, eat your heart out.) People often ask members of the SCA, “Are you in a play?” so I thought it would be fun to do that, too. For seven years, I produced and performed in shows staged by Nashville’s...
