Laura and her family enjoy camping on beautiful Mt. Graham, reading, and learning history together. At the end of the day, Laura loves to curl up with a good book or write one of her own.

Q&A With the Author:
15. What is your favorite part of writing?
I have two favorites: (1) Getting into the zone where the words come at such a rapid pace that my fingers struggle to keep up with my thoughts and (2) Rereading parts of my writing during the revision process and feeling amazed by the words that appeared on the page.
6. Do you have any advice for other writers?
There are limitless opportunities in the publishing world. Don’t let a rejection letter get you down. Whether you publish traditionally or independently, learn as much as you can both about writing and publishing/marketing. It will serve you well.

The last thing Valerie wants is to work for Gage Logan. But Valerie's husband walked out on her and her children. Now she needs a job. Gage, on the other hand, has just taken custody of his four-year-old son and is swamped trying to balance his career, be a daddy, and fix past mistakes. Together they discover that when it comes to their faith and each other, it's all about second chances.
“Are you dating Valerie or what?”
“Or what,” Gage retorted.
“You sure you don’t want to tell us what’s going on?” Pierce pressed. “Because we could find out from her brother just as easily.”
Gage released a long-suffering sigh. “Are we back in high school, guys? Valerie is Zach’s babysitter, remember?”
“Then why did you bring her?”
Because I’m crazy about her and her kids. Because I’m trying to make a huge change in my life and I’m scared out of my wits about doing it. Because she’s been my anchor in this storm.
“Because I love her.”
