Bio for Christa Allan:

A true Southern woman who knows that any cook worth her gumbo always starts with a roux and who never wears white after Labor Day, Christa weaves serious stories with threads of hope, humor, and heart. She contributes to Exemplify and Afictionado, the e-zine of American Christian Fiction Writers. Her essays have been published in Chicken Soup for the Coffee Lover’s Soul, The Ultimate Teacher, Cup of Comfort, and Chicken Soup for the Divorced Soul. Christa is the mother of five adult children, a grandmother of three, and a teacher of high school English. She and her husband Ken live in Abita Springs, Louisiana, where they and their three cats enjoy their time playing golf between dodging hurricanes.

Blurb for Walking on Broken Glass:

Leah Thornton’s life, like her Southern Living
home, has great curb appeal. But a paralyzing
encounter with a can of frozen apple juice in the
supermarket shatters the façade, forcing her
to admit that all is not as it appears. When her
best friend gets in Leah’s face about her refusal
to deal with her life, Leah is forced to make an
agonizing decision. Can she sacrifice what she
wants to get what she needs? Joy, sadness, and
pain converge, testing Leah’s commitment to
her marriage, her motherhood, and her faith.

Bio for Kim Watters:
At twelve years old Kim Watters fell in love with romance after she borrowed a romance novel from the bookshelf of her older sister. An avid reader, Kim was soon hooked on the happily ever after. For years, Kim dreamt of writing her own romance novel, but she never seemed to have the time. After graduating from college, she moved into Chicago to pursue another dream of being an actress and a model. Tired after six years of the hustle and bustle of the city, she relocated to a small town in Arizona north of Phoenix where there are no sidewalks or public transportation and the cowboys still ride their horses around. There Kim finally found the time to write. Four published novels and short stories later, she still lives in that same town, with her husband, two children, one dog and two hamsters. She’s a member of RWA, NINC, PASIC, ACFW, Desert Rose RW, and Valley of the Sun RW.

Blurb for On Wings of Love:

Ruth Fontaine’s job is to deliver lifesaving organs to those urgently in need. But the gruff pilot of her charter plane has no kind words for her work. And then she discovers the heartbreaking reason why. Noah Barton lost his wife and young son. Grieving, he gave in to pressure to donate his child’s organs–a decision he regrets. He’s bitter against those who “take advantage” of people’s anguish. Yet he still flies her on her missions, with his beloved dog, Houston, as his copilot. Now Ruth will have to show Noah he has two other copilots: the Lord and her love.

  4. Kim – I began to write a mystery when I was very young. Of course, I didn't finish it but I've longed to write for many years. I hope that I will be able to finish my WIP and have my dream come true like yours.
