Bio of Janice Hanna:

JANICE HANNA (also published as Janice A. Thompson) has published more than thirty novels plus devotionals and musical comedies for the stage. Janice makes her home near Houston, Texas. Read more at

Blurb of Wedding Belles:

Against the backdrop of scenic Estes Park, Colorado, comes a story filled with mayhem, romance, and plenty of drama— most of it on the stage. The year is 1912, and tomboy Lottie Sanders would do just about anything to help the fella she secretly loves. When Gilbert Parker’s family lodge faces financial ruin, he suggests putting on a melodrama to draw in a crowd. He appeals to Lottie to direct the show. Her plan to bring in actresses from across the country is sabotaged when the local single men turn it into a hunt for brides. Lottie finds the drama shifting from the stage to real life. 

Bio for Ruth Reid:

Ruth Reid is a full-time pharmacist who lives in Dade City, Florida with her husband and three children. Her fascination for the Amish began twenty-years ago when she skipped college classes to watch a barn raising. Today, she’s still captivated by the simple ways of the Amish lifestyle. Brush of Angel’s Wings is her second book in the Heaven on Earth series. When Ruth is not writing, she enjoys photography and quilting.

You can reach Ruth on her facebook page: Author Ruth Reid or visit her website: .

Blurb for Brush of Angel’s Wings:

A buggy racer, a hardworking field-hand, and a terrible cook, Rachel does not fit her Amish community’s standards for an eligible bride. Jordan spends a short time on the Amish farm as a hired hand and concludes the strict lifestyle is not for him. She’s determined to run him off while he’s trying to earn enough money to leave.  But there isn’t just human interaction at play. Nathaniel, an angel of God, sees the potential in Jordan and Rachel’s hearts from heaven’s perspective. His goal is to shepherd them toward the path of healing and love – if only they listen.  

Bio for Kathy Herman:

Best-selling suspense novelist *Kathy Herman*has written nineteen novels—including the Sophie Trace series, the Seaport Suspense series, and the Phantom Hollow series—since retiring from her family’s Christian bookstore business. She and her husband, Paul, have three grown children and live in Tyler, Tex. /False Pretenses/ and /Dangerous Mercy/ were previous offerings in the Secrets of the Roux River Bayou series.

Blurb for Relentless Pursuit:

Sax Landry is tormented by guilt. To escape his father’s abuse he left home, abandoning his mother and sister. Now his parents are dead, and he’s in Barbes, Louisiana, searching for his sister. But it’s not safe—people are dying because of a bioterrorist attack. He should leave, but stays. Will he find his sibling—and peace?
