Hi and welcome to MY BOOKS page.
I have two published books.
#1 FANNIE & WILKE: For the Love of a Country Girl ~ Published 2010 This is a Christian Supernatural Romance novel about my Appalachian grandparents who lived over 100 years ago in a deep holler of Stony Fork, Kentucky. Fannie Brock, my grandma, was a spunky, fourteen year old girl with raven, black hair and longed for the attention of a handsome Wilkerson Lawson who was two years older but she still wanted to play with her baby dolls and kittens. They kept running into each other wherever they met. The preacher’s wife saw something special about Wilkerson Lawson after he delivered the lumber for their new church. The Lord told her to pray for him because God had chosen him for something great.
#2 RUNNING on the Edge of Glory ~ 2018 Joel Joseph’s life falls a part when his loving ministerial parents are murdered over less than $40 in the church offering . He becomes angry and starts running from God, himself, his foster parents, and from the Born to Kill gangs. A mysterious homeless man remembers Joel but Joel doesn’t recognize him which is a good thing. The run-a-way finds the love of his life but the young woman won’t marry an unbeliever. While Joel is running in Chinatown from thugs he saves a girl but the attacker bludgeons Joel in the head with a lead pipe and leaves him for dead. Three nuns from the Samaritan House find Joel but will their prayers be strong enough to bring him back from the dead?
#3 LIVING on the Edge of Glory ~2020 After their honeymoon, Alicia Joseph and her husband slipped away to live in Oakley, Ohio. As she suspected she was pregnant with twins. Her husband’s shot and paralyzed from the waist down. Wealthy Alicia bought her husband every amenity so he could still teach. She kept her marriage vows and tried to hold their marriage together but they drifted apart. Alicia won’t act on her feelings when she realized she was in love with another man but she got a strange email that changed everything.
Her teenage son, Ling, became rebellious and after graduating he wanted to sow wild oats in California but instead, he did something else. When Ling and his new Muslim wife knocked on Alicia’s door, she was ecstatic. She wondered if she should tell her son about her bad news from the doctor but Dr.Ling Joseph already knew. A year after Alicia’s surgery, in the twinkling of an eye millions of Christians disappeared all over the world; the Rapture of the church had happened and there was chaos and confusion everywhere. Ling’s six month old baby was gone and now the couple are left behind to go through The Horrible Tribulation.
#4 DYING on the Edge of Glory ~ 2022 Ling and his wife were devastated with the loss of their baby.

When they listened to Steve Quayle, Gary Stearman, and Chuck Missler etc. they understood what had happened and why they missed the Rapture.
When they both came under the Holy Spirit’s conviction of their sin they accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and they wonderfully saved and filled with the Holy Spirit. As the book of Revelation, Ezekiel, and Matthew 24 unfolded before their eyes on the TV, in the skies, and in their home town of Oakley, they witnessed much evil that included seeing the Antichrist, his prophet, and the ?. They also saw Gog leading 200,000 super soldiers half man, half machine marching toward Isra-el; portals being opened in the sky letting weird creatures come through; UFO spaceships with fallen angels deceiving people by pretending to be aliens returned to save their Earth; wars everywhere; guilotines for people who won’t renounce Christ; Giants coming up out of the earth; who made the crop circles; read book to learn more.

FANNIE & WILKE: For the Love of a Country Girl is about a young Appalachia girl named Fannie Brock who meets her true love, Wilkerson Lawson, at a hoe-down barn dance and it scares her half to death so she runs home. Her white veil of purity will sometimes clash with her red-hot temper that flares up unexpected. Her chirpy voice can spellbind you with a ghost story one minute and cuss you out the next.
As for Wilke, you wouldn’t think that the simple act of a young country girl shooting a mountain lion in self-defense would be the final prerequisite that would convince him that his days of searching for love was over. The obstacles that would stand in the way before he was allowed to court the raven-haired beauty were a painful challenge but worth the wait. But, life’s hindrances didn’t keep the two lovers’ paths from crossing just as only Providence would have it.
My first book signing for FANNIE &WILKE.

Fannie & Wilke: For the Love of a Country Girl
Thirteen year old Fannie Brock only had a year to live out her childhood before she would start courting Wilkerson Lawson. Even her pappy said Wilke was an honest good catch! As Providence would have Fannie kept running into Wilke in Red Bird, Kentucky!
Fannie definitely decided she needed a daily dose of Wilke’s summer blue eyes to calm her nerves. She longed to hear his voice because it flowed like warm butter over her ornery soul. She dreamed of marrying him as soon as possible because a lifetime with this man would not be enough.
Was she ready to give up playing with corn husk dolls, catching crawdads in the creek, orchestrating kitten shows, telling ghost stories and playing tricks on her tomfoolery brothers? She owned a chirpy voice that could spellbind a person one minute and cuss them out like a sailor next.
On occasion, Fannie’s white veil of purity clashed with her red-hot temper especially when hearing gossiping old biddies in the General Store. They said she was too plain, too dumb and too poor to be a future governor’s wife. They bragged that their daughters were ten times more qualified for Wilke than that country bumpkin!
The one thing that convinced Wilke that Fannie was the only girl for him wasn’t when she drew a crowd while dancing a jig; or when she got soaking wet after she fell in a water trough; or the time she delivered a baby; nor when she learned how to read. It was when he left her alone on a snowy, mountain road she killed a mountain lion in self-defense. Wilke could have any beautiful, prestigious girl in all of Kentucky on his arm but none of them compared to the selfless, eye-catching, vivacious country girl called Fannie Brock.
