POWER UP, my debut middle grade novel, won the 2020 Christian Indie Award for the children’s middle grade category. It also won second place in the 2020 prestigious Selah Awards for the same category!

POWER UP is available for purchase as paperback or ebook through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and! Here’s what Marina Bromley, author of Morning Meditations at Marina’s Kitchen Table, has to say:

“Wow. Such a great book with an eternal message! Without being pushy or preachy, in a delightfully realistic storytelling way, kids and adults can learn about the Holy Spirit and the benefits of learning to use His many gifts.”

I don’t want young people to settle for being simply “church kids” any longer, but to dive in to life with the Holy Spirit and live the adventure out loud! It’s an inspiring read for adults, too!

Huge thanks to Deb Haggerty and Elk Lake Publishing Inc. for making this book a reality.

What’s Next?

I’m currently working on a Christian fiction historical romanace trilogy. It’s been so life-giving to write that I don’t want it to end! Except I do, so it can get out into the world. Pray with me that my agent and I can find it a publishing home! 🙂
