My first novella, ‘A Heart’s Endeavor’ was released by Beachwalkpress last November. This past May, ‘Callie’s Reckoning’ was released by Rebel Ink Press. Callie’s story is only sixteen pages. It was my first shot at Domestic Discipline and there are many more stories about Brandon and Callie’s adventures in their DD marriage to come, but life tends to throw us a curve ball now and again reminding us that we are not in control of our future and that we should take each day one at a time and count our blessings.

My husband suffered a stroke so my writing endeavors are on the back burner for now. We all have our problems and sometimes we get so involved in things that seem important that we forget to sit back and think about what truly is top priority. I was so scared the day it happened but somehow remained calm and got him the help he needed. When he was safe and sound in the hospital and all threats were gone I went home that night, walked into the house and realized how empty my life would be without him. I know it’s something I’ll have to face sooner or later, but God, not now. Not yet. Unfortunately, it’s out of my hands.

I’m thankful he’s here with me to celebrate my newest release, ‘Her Heart’s Desire’ due out August 19th.  Life goes on but sometimes it’s hard to keep going when bad things happen. I know this book would have been the last thing on my mind if my best friend had been taken away from me.

To those in pain, I wish you peace and the strength to endure. To those who are caregivers, I also wish you peace for you are suffering too.

Love, Mary
