notbysight2FRONTBio of Kay Lyons Stockham:

Kay Lyons Stockham always wanted to be a writer, ever since the age of seven or eight when she copied the pictures out of a Charlie Brown book and rewrote the story because she didn’t like the plot. Through the years her stories have changed but one characteristic stayed true—they were all romances. Each and every one of her manuscripts included a love story.

Published in 2005 with Harlequin Enterprises, Kay’s first secular romance hit #7 on the bestseller list. Kay has also been a HOLT Medallion, Book Buyers Best and RITA Award nominee with approximately twenty books published in the general fiction market.

In 2014, Kay lost her beloved father—true hero material—at the age of 85. In the months before and after his death life continued to throw some pretty radical curve balls, leaving Kay struggling to find her creativity and relying heavily on her faith to see her through the valleys. Reading the Bible brought comfort and in the fall of 2014, Kay rededicated her life to Christ. Her goals changed and her desire to be a source of light and encouragement to her family, her church, and her readers, stirred the creativity within her to use her God-given talent to spread His word.

To distinguish her secular books from her inspirational novels, Kay took on her maiden name in honor of her father and the inspiration he was as a loving husband of 60 years, a dedicated father, and most importantly, a man of faith.

Look for more inspirational books from Kay Lyons Stockham in the future. For more information regarding her work, please visit Kay’s website at www.kaystockham.com, “like” her Kay Lyons Stockham AUTHOR Page on Facebook, or follow on Pinterest and Twitter.

Blurb for Not by Sight by Kay Lyons Stockham:

“Not By Sight gripped me from the first page. It was well written, heartwarming, and evocative-everything I’ve come to expect from novel by Kay Lyons Stockham.” ~New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Shelley Shepard Gray

Can you love someone and still be free?

Emma Wyatt agrees to tutor a recently blinded, embittered soldier because of the $50,000 paycheck his brother offers. The job is an answer to many prayers. Blind herself, Emma dreams of independence and freedom away from her overprotective family. Tutoring Ian in all things “blind” isn’t easy, especially when the biggest challenge is helping him walk by faith.

Protect someone you cannot see?

Good soldiers show no weakness. Ian MacGregor holds his battle with claustrophobia close to his chest, unsuccessfully trying to cope on his own, too angry with God to seek comfort. Ian knows duty, honor, serving his country. So why is he being punished with this very personalized hell?

As Ian struggles to strong-arm his phobia and let go of his anger, his growing feelings for Emma are overshadowed by the danger lurking around them. Emma would be better off with someone else. Someone sighted.

Someone able to protect her from the person determined to keep them apart…

Blurb for A Dream for Love by Lisa Belcastro

“Sold!”

When the gavel hit the wooden block at the Possible Dreams Auction, Laurel Simmons sat in stunned silence. Her sister had lost her mind, purchasing a week’s vacation stay for two at actor Ryan Crandall’s beach house on Martha’s Vineyard. And then Tammy announced that she was giving the “dream” to Laurel as an early birthday present.

A month later, Laurel and her four-year-old daughter Gracie arrive at the luxurious house on Squibnocket Beach ready to swim, play, picnic and enjoy the peace and solitude together.

Laurel’s dream vacation quickly turns into a nightmare when Hollywood bad boy Ryan Crandall shows up to escape his latest tabloid headlines. Ryan wants the woman and her child gone. Laurel wants him gone. Fate will bring them together for reasons neither one of them expected, but fate will also drive them apart.

Laurel has a past she needs to keep hidden. Her life and Gracie’s depend on it. Ryan has a past, and present, that’s been food for public consumption for over a decade. Will the past deprive them of a future? Or will they dare to dream a dream for love?
