Get the "Scoop"

Want to read a great book, with characters who seem to be real people, funny lines, and a wonderful story? Then you have to read "Scoop" by Rene Gutteridge.

Scoop, is the first of the series and centers around Hayden, who was age 20 when her parents died. If you haven't yet guessed by the series title, this book is packed with many laugh out loud moments and great one liners.

Hayden is a strong Christian who, having been homeschooled, lacks some of the politically correct social not praying in front of everyone during a crisis. She finds herself in an internship at a television news station with a boss that takes stress pills, an aging news anchor that everyone wishes Botox on, a weatherman who wants to predict love for himself and Hayden, and a reporter struggling with his own politically correctness of being a good reporter and being a Christian.

Old School meets New School meets Homeschool. A smart and funny read.

The Cubicle Next Door

Check out the new book by Siri Mitchell: The Cubicle Next Door is set in a civilian's view of working on a military post. That in itself is funny enough...then add that the main character is a tree hugging, anti-SUV lover, with a thing for Bollywood movies. (Her favorite it Bride & Prejudice.) Suddenly this civilian hippie is thrown into a cubicle next to an Air Force Pilot/Teacher who SUV. Can't you feel the love?

Christina Berry and Sherrie Ashcraft

I want to introduce and invite you to visit the NEW website for two very close author friends, Christina Berry and Sherrie Ashcraft--mother and daughter writing team. Their first novel is now with an agent.

I first met these two wonderful ladies at a Saturday one-day conference for Oregon Christian Writers in February of 2005. This was my first time I had attended any writing conference, and ended up being asked to join their critique group. One thing that stands out with these two is their total support for other writers with words of encouragement, enthusiasm and willingness to help in any way they can. For that, I am grateful.

So, please take a moment and check out their website at and sign up for their newsletter. You won't regret it.
