She's Finally Found a Place to Call Home . . . How Far Will She Go to Save It?

With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to their Texas family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have just three months to pay.

Though facing eviction, Rosa falls in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. They welcome her vivacious spirit and try to help her navigate puzzling American customs. She can't help but stand out, though, and her beauty captures attention.

But when Weston Garner, still grieving his own lost love, is unprepared to give his heart, Rosa must decide to what lengths she will go to save her future.

City of the Falling Sky (The Seckry Sequence Book 1)

City of the Falling Sky (The Seckry Sequence Book 1)

Product Description

When Seckry Sevenstars is forced out of his village by the greedy Endrin Corporation and relocated to the daunting metropolis of Skyfall City, he harbours resentment for the company and vows to get them back one day for taking away his home, his school and his friends.

Fortunately, the marvels of the city do a good job in distracting Seckry from his anger and homesickness, and it isn’t long before he’s competing at Friction (the city’s most popular multiplayer video game), slurping awe-inspiring multicoloured milkshakes, and getting butterflies on his first date.

Then, when a mysterious email asks Seckry to break into the headquarters of the Endrin Corporation and steal a container full of worms for a hefty sum of money, his anger resurfaces, and he can’t resist the revenge he promised himself.

Alone at night, Seckry creeps through the sewers whilst wondering what experiments Endrin might be doing on the worms, and emerges into the silent complex. But the worms aren’t the only thing that he finds. Staring at him through the darkness, with wide, innocent eyes, is something that makes Seckry’s heart almost stop.

A girl.

She’s shaking, petrified, and has no recollection of who she is or what she’s doing there.

Floodlights bleach the area and Seckry has no choice but to grab a hold of the girl and escape with her.

Suddenly the question of what Endrin were doing with a few worms becomes the last thing on Seckry’s mind. What were Endrin doing with a human?

Their three children have grown up and are making their way in a world that is propelling itself toward World War II. Tess has her heart set on a Hollywood movie career; PJ is a successful sheep rancher in New Zealand and Tommy is pursuing his career in the Marine Corps and learning not only about war, but about the perils of romance. When Tommy finds himself in England prior to WWII, Winston Churchill calls on him to examine the economic growth of the German nation as they secretly prepare for war.

Vol. V - Reprisal - Continuing the series into WWII as Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Callahan III faces personal tragedy during the Blitz in London as the war presents a very personal face. As he leaves his Embassy post to return to the United States, America joins Europe in the worldwide conflagration. For the second time in his young life, the son of Thomas and Katrina Callahan finds himself immersed in front-line battle, torn between his duty and the love of a beautiful woman who desires only his safety.

Interview With The Author

Q - So, what makes the Jaxon Jennings’ Thriller Mystery Series so special?


A – Jaxon’s not your typical hero. He’s flawed, and that makes him entertaining. As a reader, I want to be entertained and thrilled. I’m a fan of the Action & Adventure and Thriller genres, so it was natural for me to write in them. I’m also a lover of things that go bump in the night and I add a little creepiness just to make things interesting.

Not only will you want to keep reading late into the night, the pace and action keeping your nose in the page, but when you finally close the book, you’ll probably keep the light on as well.

“Help me…”

Q – With the main story focusing around two younger characters, is Frozen Past written for adults?

A – It’s definitely an adult book. With a Thriller, a certain amount of violence and adult material is expected, and Frozen Past definitely fits into that category. Younger readers are not the target audience of the Jaxon Jennings’ series.

Jaxon is introduced to the reader in Frozen Past, and though it is not really a prequel, he shares the spotlight with Luke and Ellie, two teenagers who find themselves thrust into a killer’s world for seemingly no reason at all. I feel the divide between the adult world and the kids’ world makes the story that much more enthralling.

Q – Should the series be read in any certain order?

A – Each book is a separate story and I wrote them to be enjoyed in any order. If you find you like to stick to a chronological timeline, I’d suggest following this sequence:

- Frozen Past
- Cache 72
- Father Figure

Finally the Bride - Finding Hope While Waiting: The Single Woman's Guide to the Wait for a Husband and Marriage

Finally the Bride - Finding Hope While Waiting: The Single Woman's Guide to the Wait for a Husband and Marriage

Product Description

Why Would God Care About My Love Life?

From the woman behind the screenplay and novel, Never the Bride, comes a roller coaster of a love story with God. Cheryl McKay pulls no punches about what it's really like to be single, with your age creeping up, and no end in sight to the wait for love and marriage.

It seems that many years ago, God asked Cheryl to surrender the pen she was using to write her love story. All He wanted was carte blanche. No problem, right? Cheryl tentatively conceded--that is, until it became apparent that the Almighty had no intention of conforming to her writing schedule, much less the tick of her biological clock. In fact, He blew every deadline she ever attempted to set. As romance seemed to pass Cheryl by, she couldn't help but question: Could God really be trusted to bring her the love of her life?

Written during a long wait, this book opens up Cheryl's painfully honest, personal journals. She explores what it's like to enlist in God's Marriage Boot Camp, and how to survive singlehood year after solitary year. She wrestles with her Creator over multiple best friends that never see her "that way." Then there are those lists of what she wanted--you know, the ones she revised a billion times then laminated for safekeeping. She watches, bewildered, as much younger women find love that seems to elude her.

Through it all, she falls head over heels for a God who proves Himself to be as resistant to her controls as He is faithful beyond her wildest dreams.

Are you still waiting? Have you lost hope? Venture to victory with a woman who knows just how hard it is to wait for the day when you are Finally the Bride.


This book includes a collection of real-life God-written love stories by such authors as SQuire Rushnell & Louise DuArt (God Winks Series, Couples Who Pray), and Victorya Michaels Rogers (Finding a Man Worth Keeping).

If you purchase the Kindle version, get the audio book for 1.99 through Amazon / audible.

Cheryl McKay is the screenwriter of the award winning film, The Ultimate Gift, and co-author of the ACFW/Carol Award winning novel, Never the Bride. Cheryl keeps her purple pen busy through Purple PenWorks. She's also released a new book series called Dates With God.
