Congratulations to dolls123 for winning Cara Putman’s Deadly Exposure and Carolynn for winning Sherri Sand’s book, Leave It to Chance.

If you want to win Barbara’s new book, Keeping Her Safe, then please leave a comment on the posts with your email address in it or email me at The drawing will end next Sunday evening.

Keeping Her Safe (Love Inspired Suspense, June 2008):
Hunter Gordon had pleaded guilty to a crime he hadn’t committed. And served ten long years in prison. All to save the family who had taken him in: beautiful Rae Benton and her father. But right before Rae’s father died, he revealed his daughter was in danger. Hunter had to keep her safe. How was he supposed to get close? Rae didn’t know the truth and blamed him for the loss of all she held dear. Hunter would have to earn Rae’s trust—without ever telling her what really happened a decade ago.

Barbara Phinney’s bio:
Barbara has lived in four countries in her life and never gets tired of traveling. But nowadays, you’ll find her in her rural New Brunswick home writing or planning some volunteer event for her church or her children’s school. The small town in which she lives provides much fodder for her stories, and she’s often threatening her friends and family that they’ll find a place in one of her books.

Barbara has had six books published, five with Harlequin, and finds the Bible to be her greatest source of inspiration. She feels it has the widest variety of people, and every one of them made mistakes, yet God loved them all. That amazes her.

She would love to hear from her readers, either through her website,,
or through the editor at:
Steeple Hill Books
233 Broadway Suite 1001
New York NY 10279

My good news is that summer is here–well not officially but school is out and I’m finished with my subbing job. I went back into the classroom to teach first graders for two months in lab classes for reading and math and the work piled up. I think I’ll be spending weeks digging myself through the piles.

Also I found out that Buried Secrets won the Winter Rose Contest (tied with Molly Bull) in the inspirational category. And So Dark the Night and Once Upon the Time are finalists in the Beacon in the inspirational category.

Take care,
