Bio for Patty Smith Hall:

A romantic at heart, Patty Smith Hall is an award winning, multi-published author. Her stories of encouragement and hope can be found in Guideposts, Journey and Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul.  Her Genesis award winning manuscript, Hearts in Flight, will be released by Love Inspired Historical in July, 2011. Patty resides in Georgia along with Dan, her husband of 28 years.

Blurb for Hearts in Flight:

Serving her country as one of the Women’s Army Special Pilots is Maggie Daniels’s dearest wish. But there are obstacles to overcome above and beyond the enemies in the Pacific, including her overprotective family, skeptical fellow pilots—and handsome, distant squadron leader Wesley Hicks. Whatever it takes, Maggie will prove herself to Wesley, until she succeeds in winning his admiration…and love. 

Wesley can see that Maggie’s a first-class pilot. She’s also too fearless by half. The war has cost Wesley so much already. Can he let go of his guilt for a chance at happiness—and can he learn to trust in God…and Maggie…enough to believe in love for a lifetime? 

Dangerous ReunionBio for Sandra Robbins:

Sandra Robbins and her husband live in the small college town where she grew up and are the parents of four children and six grandchildren. Until a few years ago Sandra was working as an elementary school principal, but God opened the door for her to become a full-time writer. Dangerous Reunion is her fourth book to release from Love Inspired Suspense and is the first in a three book series set on Ocracoke Island. Sandra enjoys hearing from her readers.

Blurb for Dangerous Reunion:

Killer on the Loose

A murderer on tiny, safe Ocracoke Island? Deputy Sheriff Kate Michaels doesn’t want to believe it—until someone at the crime scene starts shooting at her. Then Nashville detective Brock Gentry shows up. Brock broke her heart years ago when he called off their engagement. Now torn apart by a case, Brock seeks sanctuary on the island. Yet as the threats against Kate escalate—and Kate’s sisters are targeted—she turns to the man she’s never stopped loving. Even if their reunion is more dangerous than it ever was before. 

Second Chance FamilyBio for Winnie Griggs:

Winnie Griggs has written 12 books for three different lines and is currently hard at work on her 13th.  A small town girl herself, Winnie’s books focus on family and community and matters of faith – all subjects that are near and dear to her own heart.  In fact, the motto on her website reads “Small Towns, Big Hearts, Amazing Grace”

Winnie has been married for 35 years to her college sweetheart and together they have raised four proud-to-call-them-mine children and a too-numerous-to-count assortment of dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, turtles and 4-H sheep.  Besides reading and writing, Winnie’s  favorite activities include cooking, exploring flea markets and pretending the growing army of dust bunnies who have invaded her home will disappear if she just ignores them long enough.

Blurb for Second Chance Family:

Love was out of the question… until it became the only solution.

Mitch Hammond is a man of his word.  And for Cora Beth Collins that’s a problem.  The honorable sheriff has vowed never to love again, for fear of wounding someone else.  The most he can offer is marriage in name only.  But with no other way to adopt two beleagured, runaway orphans, she accepts.

Despite his intentions, however, Mitch is starting to want more from Cora Beth…and from himself.  For in her trusting eyes he sees everything he hopes to be – as a lawman, a father and a husband.
