My favorite pastime is to curl up in my rocker with a good novel. The thought of selling books never entered my mind twenty years ago. But one summer evening, a visit from two friends changed not only my thoughts but my life when they asked, “Do you want to buy a bookstore with us?”

After a year of preparation, I left my counseling job and sold Christian books for five years. We later moved to Florida where I worked as a social worker and then as a real estate agent. But I wasn’t satisfied and felt God calling me to do something else.

My husband finally suggested I find an occupation that I could be passionate about. Clearly, real estate and I had not bonded. “Maybe I could write?” I'd written journals since I was fifteen. But I couldn’t believe those words came from my mouth. Soon, my first story was published in a mother's magazine.

Have you felt a similar call?

My blog is a place where I share the ups and downs on the road to publication. I'll be brutally honest and I promise I won't leave anything out. Hopefully, you will laugh and cry with me as we figure this writing experience together.

Right now my husband and I make our home in Pennsylvania where we live in the country along the Susquehanna River. Besides writing, I also spend enormous amounts of time learning photography. You can see my creations at,at and @territiffanyphotography on Facebook.

Thank you for visiting!
