DA CoverBio for Lisa Phillips:

A British ex-pat who grew up an hour outside of London, Lisa Phillips attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, California. It was there she met her husband. He’s from California, but nobody’s perfect.

It wasn’t until her Bible College graduation that she figured out she was a writer (someone told her). She’s taken the Apprentice and Journeyman writing courses with the Christian Writers Guild, and discovered a penchant for high-stakes stories of mayhem and disaster where you can find made-for-each-other love that always ends in happily ever after.

Lisa can be found in Idaho wearing either flip-flops or cowgirl boots, depending on the season. She leads worship with her husband at their local church. Together they have two children, a sparkly Little Princess and a Mini Daddy, and there’s only one bunny rabbit now (sad face).

Blurb for Double Agent by Lisa Phillips:


As a spy, Sabine Laduca works alone. But when she investigates her brother’s murder, she’s forced into an uneasy alliance with his Delta Force team leader. The CIA taught Sabine to trust no one, and Sergeant Major Doug Richardson is no exception. The handsome soldier hides his own secrets, but nothing will stop Sabine from finding out who killed her brother. Not even when the CIA declares her rogue. Now not only is the killer after her, so is the agency. For the first time, she needs someone—Doug. Because only he can help her find the truth…and only he can keep her safe….

Blurb for Out of the Ruins by Karen Barnett:

While her sister lies on her deathbed, Abby Fischer prays for a miracle. What Abby doesn’t expect, however, is for God’s answer to come in the form of the handsome Dr. Robert King, whose experimental treatment is risky at best.

As they work together toward a cure, Abby’s feelings for Robert become hopelessly entangled. Separated by the tragedy of the mighty San Francisco earthquake, their relationship suddenly takes a back seat to survival. With fires raging throughout the city, Abby fears for her life as she flees alone through burning streets. Where is God now? Will Robert find Abby, even as the world burns around them? Or has their love fallen with the ruins of the city?

wynn book coverBio of Robin Shope Jansen:

My pseudonym is Robin Shope. Still a fulltime teacher, I write at night, during vacation, on the bus, in the car, in my sleep, on my porch, and sitting on a fence. My true loves are my two adult children and 2 wee boys. Do I mention my 4 dogs?

I’ve created stories since the age of ten when my composition teacher told me I didn’t know how to write. The 1980s my short stories were snatched up by book collections and Sunday school weeklies. By the 1990’s my novels began to be published. The first trilogy was The Chase (which is in movie development by the same company that did Blindside with Sandra Bullock), The Replacement, The Candidate. My next trilogy is The Christmas Edition, Journey to Paradise (now a DVD), The Valentine Edition, and The Easter Edition. Wildcard is a standalone, as is Passages, and my middle school chapter book, Ruby Red. Wynn in the Willows is my third book series and tenth book.

Blurb for Wynn in the Willows by Robin Shope:

Wynn Baxter returns to Willow Island to study rare plant life and welcomes the opportunity to investigate the mysterious circumstances of her father’s death. But the truth gets complicated as twenty year-old memories begin to surface. What Wynn learns will shake her emotional foundation. A haunting story of forgiveness, science, murder, and other matters of living.
