My romantic historical novel, The Calling of Ella McFarland, transpires in 1905 Indian Territory prior to Oklahoma statehood. Women have yet to win the vote and with it the right to participate in their governance. Ella stumbles upon injustice she can’t ignore and sets in motion events that alter her life and the lives of those she holds dear. Will she hear God’s call amid the tumult around her?
The Calling of Ella McFarland won the 2014 Jerry Jenkins Operation First Novel Award under the title Greater Still. It debuted on December 1, 2015 and won the 2016 American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Award in the Debut Category. I’m neck-deep in blessings, as Ella would say.
Novella #1: A Christmas to Remember released on October 1, 2016. Readers revisit Ella and Andrew three years into their marriage. The kaleidoscope of their world has twisted a time or two. It’s Christmas, 1908, and Ella’s life is about to be transformed. Again.
Novella #2: A Christmas Measure of Love released October 27, 2017. Joined by blood but separated by circumstance, Lily, a girl on the cusp of womanhood, and her mother, a woman at the nadir of life, reunite. What will Lily and Ma find the old shack where their sweat and tears once mingled? It’s Christmas 1910, and Lily’s in for a Yuletide surprise she hasn’t reckoned for.
A Rock Creek Christmas Collection: combines both novellas in a single volume.
