Donna L.H. Smith, a dear author friend, is taking the blog reins today. You’ll not find a kinder person anywhere. I know you’ll be glad to get to know her. She’s giving away a digital copy of Rose’s Redemption to someone who joins the chat.
Donna L.H. Smith
Have you ever wanted to change your life? (Chuckle) Everyone wants to change something about their life from time to time. We want to lose weight, eat healthier, exercise, and make sure our spiritual life is on track by spending time with God.
Hello there. Donna L.H. Smith here, and I appreciate Linda giving me this opportunity to guest blog. Linda and I are former students of DiAnn Mills, through the Christian Writers’ Guild Craftsman program.
Donna L.H. Smith: My Life
I was born and raised in Kansas — and yes — my mother’s name was Dorothy! But she did not have a dog named Toto! Her dog was Tiger. I have two college degrees in mass communications, but I consider myself a lifelong student. Currently, I’m studying Christian healing through Global Awakening, concentrating on inner healing to help people mend from life’s hurts. My goal is to host inner healing retreats beginning next year.
Donna L.H. Smith: Meghan’s Choice
My debut novel was Meghan’s Choice, available from Amazon. It made the semi-finals of the Operation 1stNovel that Linda’s first book won! (smile). It’s the first novel in the Known by Heart Series.
Donna L.H. Smith: Rose’s Redemption
Book number two is Rose’s Redemption. Here’s the back-cover blurb:
A Former Dance Hall Girl. A Handsome Young Doctor. Can Rose overcome her past? That’s Rose’s Redemption.
Rose Rhodes changed not only her name after the tornado; she changed her outward appearance. No more was she Rosalie O’Roarke, former dance hall girl. She loves her new work as a nurse-in-training to handsome Doctor Scott Allison.
As Scott and Rose’s relationship begins to change from professional to personal, they must deal with figures from Rose’s past who make life anything but easy. Rose is concerned that the town will discover her dance hall girl past, especially when Jake Thomas, the man who viciously beat her, asks all over town where Rosalie O’Roarke went. But both Rose and Scott are in for surprise encounters with Christ that will change their lives forever and help them see His plan for them. In fact, they will see God at work all over New Boston.
Pre-published, Rose’s Redemption won second place in the 2017 Golden Leaf Award at the Advanced Novelist Retreat and was a finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers’ Phoenix Rattler Contest. Published in connection with Hartline Literary Agency, serving the Christian book community.
