Blurb for Deliver Us From Evil:

A beautiful yet tough woman working in a beautiful yet tough setting, Brannon Callahan is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Strong faith and a decorated history of service have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers, but there’s no precedent for what’s about to happen. After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshal Roark Holland (already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one and safeguard the donor heart he’s transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise the largest child trafficking ring in history—with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee—will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail.

This eleven-lesson course has become a classic in its 27years of training writers to tell a good story on paper. A practical text on the fine art and ministry of writing, now in its second edition, it will help you develop your God-given talent. When you complete the assignments, you should have one personal experience story ready to submit to a publisher. Appendices guide you in building your writing library and in writing other formats beside narration. It contains assignments in writing essays, devotionals, doing interviews, and many other helpful forms that can broaden your writing experience and increase your skill levels. You will have a lifetime reference manual on nearly every aspect of writing for the glory of God.

Christine Tangvald, Writer, Teacher, and popular Conference Speaker, says of Intro, “‘Every writer– beginner or pro– should read it every year.”
