Left to Die Prize Pack



Left to Die is RELEASED!!!


It’s out! Or, at least…it should be. Amazon was not cooperating, so there might be a few delays. Never fear–it will be soon.

(And no, I am not panicking. Of course I’m not freaking out. And yes, all my hair is still on my head. Well…most of it anyway.)


Yeah, this release has been rather stressful. There have been tears. There has been pillow-punching. There has been crying into the pillow that was punched. (No one ever said the author life was easy, folks.)


The show must go on. There’s nothing I can do about the problems at the moment, so an error-ridden book there shall be until the end of this week!


Okay. Honesty-fest is over. *scrapes up remaining bits of professionalism*


I’m proud to introduce you to my latest novella, Left to Die.



About the Book:

Lindy Greene’s life is perfect. Too perfect. But living as a missionary nurse, serving in a small hospital in China, soon brings the disaster she fearfully anticipates. All of her well-thought-out plans for the future disintegrate after pulling a fatally ill, disfigured, abandoned child from a pile of trash. She doesn’t even like babies.

Nathan Thomas can’t find balance. College suited him just fine until his cash ran out, forcing him to the Chinese mission field with his parents. The chaotic atmosphere in China does little to relax his agitated mind, and the pretty blonde nurse at the hospital does nothing to help him focus.

The Chinese mission field isn’t for the faint of heart. Nathan wonders how he can survive his remaining time there, while Lindy struggles to help everyone she can. With different ideals pulling them in separate directions, there is one thing drawing them together: a tiny, sickly, crippled orphan who relies on them to stay alive.

2017’s Word

I’ve never done a one word goal for the year before, but since doing so is apparently a thing, I’m going to jump on the bandwagon and do it!


My word for 2017?

Why Focus?

I am the expert procrastinator. I get distracted so easily it is honestly embarrassing. I love doing as many things at once as I can just to feel like I’m getting a lot done.

But I rarely get much, if anything, done when I try to multi-task.

What do I want to focus on in 2017?

  1. Relationship with Christ
  2. Relationships with family and friends
  3. College
  4. Writing
  5. Music
  6. Enjoying life


Already, my schedule for 2017 is full. A nasty surgery that will force me to slow down for about 6 months, starting school at a local university, getting a second job . . . it all adds up. I know myself well enough to understand that I allow my brain to become overwhelmed. Not proud of it, but it is what it is. Just looking at what this year already holds, I’m seeing a lot of potential to get stressed.

I don’t want that to happen. I want to FOCUS on what’s important. I want to FOCUS on the good amidst the not-so-good. I want my main FOCUS to be on Christ.



Do you have a word for 2017?
