When he learns that thousands of his people will be sent as slaves to the mines, he must choose—fight the royal army or win the help of his kin

Friday, August 2nd, 2019
By day Yosyph appears nothing more than a mute
tavern-hand. By night he is the shadowy leader of a growing revolution.

 

When he learns that thousands of his people will be
sent as slaves to the mines, he must choose—fight the royal army with an
ill-prepared rebellion or journey to the land of his ancestors through the
deadly King’s Trial, where he hopes to win the help of his kin.
His journey grows complicated when he rescues a
maiden and enrages a prince, but if he doesn’t return with help in time, the
people he’s loved and secretly served will be gone.
 
 

 

 

 

 

As a youth, I made up stories to help my little
sisters go to sleep. It backfired. We stayed up for hours continuing the tale.
The King’s Trial was born in those late, whispered nights.
 
Ever since I climbed up to the rafters of our barn
at age four, I’ve lived high adventure: scuba diving, mud football with my
brothers, rappelling, and even riding a retired racehorse at full
gallop—bareback. I love the thrill and joy.
Stories give me a similar thrill and joy. I love
living through the eyes and heart of a hero who faces his internal demons and
the heroine who fights her way free instead of waiting to be saved. I read
fiction and true-story adventure. I write both, though I’m starting with
publishing the fiction—fact will come later.
 
I create high fantasy, fairy tale retellings, and
poetry. I live a joyful adventure with my husband and six children. I am a
Christian and I love my Savior.

 

Top Ten List

  1. As a child, I couldn’t walk across a room. I danced, spun, skipped, ran, or otherwise moved, but I couldn’t just walk.
  2. I took calculus at a community college at age 14. I planned to go to MIT and become an astronaut. Plans changed—in wonderful ways.

 

  1. I love reading to my children. We’ve enjoyed books from Dr. Seuss to Les Misérables. Maniac Magee is one of our favorites.
  2. I lived in St Petersburg, Russia for half-a-year teaching English to kindergartners. I learned to wash my clothes in a bathtub, filter and boil my drinking water, and love my sweet, crayon-eating, kids.
  3. I have slight dyslexia. ‘b’ and ‘p’ sometimes flip flop on me. But it also means I can read a book upside-down.
  4. I love climbing, rappelling, and horseback riding. But I hate roller coasters and bungee jumping.

 

  1. I’ve journaled almost every day since I turned seventeen. I capture conversations, descriptions, happenings, and quotes. I explore ideas. Through the years I’ve written well over a million words. It prepared me to become an author.
  2. Plumbing Repair is my nemesis. I’m grateful I don’t have to battle it very often. In the end, I always win, but I feel like I’ve fought an archvillain who pulled every dirty trick in the book, including Chinese water torture in claustrophobic conditions.

 

  1. I live with a vivid imagination. I dream in 3-D, technicolor, and occasionally with my eyes open. This is a bane when it comes to nightmares. I will not watch horror movies.
  2. The King’s Trial started as a bedtime tale I told my little sisters twenty years ago. Don’t worry. I wrote the second book, The King’s Shadow,in six months, and it will come out this autumn.

 

Plus an extra: I have an accent. People often ask me where I’m from. Maybe it’s my reader accent. I’ve read out-loud enough different books in character, that perhaps it stuck.

One teen, one cranky old man and the open road

Thursday, May 4th, 2017
Just
Shut Up and Drive
by
Chynna Laird
Genre:
Coming of Age, Contemporary
 
One
teen, one cranky old man and the open road. What could go wrong?
Eighteen-year
old Wil Carter can think of more than a fistful of things he’d
rather do than go on a road trip with his ninety-five year old
grandfather. But when Gramps Wilf barks an order, you listen or get
an earful of grief.
Wil
lost his parents in a horrible car accident when he was five. Gramps
has been the only parent he has ever known. Now that he’s ready to
go off to college, the old man says he has things Wil needs to learn
to be the man he’s supposed to be. But the trip turns out to be
more than he bargains for.
Along
their week-long road trip across the Canadian Prairies, Wil not only
learns tidbits about his own life, but realizes the grandfather he
thought he knew has mysteries of his own. With each stop they make, a
new layer of emotional truth is revealed…for each of them.
Will
Gramps teach Wil what he needs to know before the journey ends? And
is Wil strong enough to hear it?

Shattered Hearts a Christian Women’s Fiction

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

Stacy, how has your family background affected your writing, if it has?

My great-grandma was also a writer. I think I’ve been blessed with a talent for writing, mostly from her.

What gave you the nerve to attempt your first novel?

Please describe your writing process.

Living Inside the Testimony by Betty Collier

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

This is a heartfelt personal testimony from a Christian woman and her hope to share it with others. When we have a personal testimony of something that has made us different in a happy way, we want to share it with any who may want to hear it. This book has done a great job of keeping this point of view in mind and, without force, lets other see and feel her spiritual journey. (more…)

Margaret Godar’s is the Christian author of In His Footsteps’ series

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

Margaret, welcome. Where were you born? 

I was one of the few people born in the capital of the United States – yep right in DC itself.  Maybe that’s why I think everything from zoos to museums should be free!

 When did you start to write? 

My writing all started on a Friday night at home with http://bored.com.  A few weeks before that night I felt God telling me He wanted to write my life on the Internet.  This was before Blogs were everywhere and any where.  I had a couple of websites and tried a new one with a few posts but quickly dropped it.  Too many problems, too public.
