Bio for Judy Christie:

Judy Christie started keeping a journal when she was nine and still has all of them.  When she turned 50, she committed to write the novel she had always wanted to write. That was five years ago, and “Downtown Green” is her sixth novel. She’s also the author of the nonfiction Hurry Less Worry Less series.  She loves visiting with readers, and they can find her at, and She gives free tips each week on how to slow down and enjoy each day more at

When she’s not writing, she enjoys roaming through flea markets and chatting on her vintage green kitchen couch.

Blurb for  Downtown Green:

Downtown Green, book 5 in the Green Series, is about a smalltown newspaper owner who never gives up on her beloved Green, Louisiana.  When a highway bypass threatens to kill downtown, she and her husband agree to renovate the quaint Bayou Freez Drive-In and face all sorts of challenges along the way.

Bio for Kathi Macias:

Award‐winning author Kathi Macias has written more than 30 books, including the “Extreme Devotion” series of novels for New Hope Publishers. With women’s ministry as her primary interest, Kathi is a popular speaker for women’s retreats, conferences, and churches. A mother and grandmother, Kathi and her husband, Al, call 
California home.

Blurb for Special Delivery:

In book two of the “Freedom” series, readers find Mara fighting against her attraction to Bible college student Jonathan Flannery even while wrestling with risking her own precarious safety to become involved in the rescue of another girl who is pregnant and desperately wants to escape her captors and save her own life, as well as her child’s. 

Halfway around the world in a brothel in Thailand, a young girl is rescued with the promise of being reunited with her younger sister who was adopted by an interracial couple in the States, friends of Jonathan’s family. Meanwhile, Jefe—Mara’s uncle, who held her as a sex slave in his brothel in San Diego for years—seeks revenge for Mara’s testimony that put him behind bars for life. 

Will his underworld connections be successful in kidnapping and killing the girl who believes she has finally won her freedom?

Bio for Sharon Dunn:

Sharon Dunn grew up in the country where there was ample opportunity for her imagination to flourish. She started writing when she was pregnant with her oldest son. Three kids and a lot of diaper changes later, she has published both award winning humorous mysteries and romantic suspense. Her hobbies include reading in small increments, trying to find things around the house, being the mom taxi, and making pets out of the dust bunnies under her furniture.
Blurb for Broken Trust:
“I need you to trust me.”

Impossible! Sheriff Christine Norris still remembers the heartache from the last time she gave Special Agent Wyatt Green her trust. And she certainly doesn’t believe him now, when he claims some of her residents are involved in a dangerous militia. But Christine can’t ignore the fact that someone who may be tied to the militia has kidnapped an innocent boy. And when she’s almost killed in a fiery explosion, Christine realizes Wyatt may be the only person she can trust to protect her. Even if she’s still not sure she can trust him again with her heart….

Bio for Alyssa Liljequist:
Here is my bio: Alyssa Liljequist is an 18-year-old homeschool graduate who loves God and others. She is also a freelance writer whose work has been published by a variety of online and print publications. Alyssa has a heart for missions and orphans. Her interests include video production, reading, and writing. She blogs at You can find Deadly Delirium here
Blurb for Deadly Delirium:
Though Johanna and her older brother, Karl, lost their parents to Nazi rule in Germany, they have not stopped standing up for their beliefs. Now Communism is in full force in East Germany and they have been imprisoned along with their friend, Franz, for their resistance efforts. Johanna falls ill and becomes delirious with fever. Is there anything that can be done or will Karl and Franz be forced to watch her slowly die? As her life literally flashes before her eyes, will Johanna have the strength-and desire-to survive?
