Welcome to MY BOOKS page on Story by Storrie. I’ve written two books; FANNIE & WILKE in January of 2010; RUNNING on the Edge of Glory 9/9/2018. Both are Christian Romance Fiction with a Supernatural Touch.
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.

RUNNING on the Edge of Glory: A Christian Romance with a Supernatural Touch ~ BOOK ONE of a TRILOGY is about a young teen Joel Ling Joseph, whose world falls apart when his loving ministerial parents are murdered execution style. Angry at God, Joel hits the NYC pavement and becomes the poster boy for bad luck until he is drawn to a homeless man in Central Park. The hobo provides fatherly advice and sanctuary from his greedy foster parents, mean landlords, and Born to Kill thugs who chase, shoot bullets and label him the White Devil. What kind of miracles will it take before this bad boy’s luck can change and before he’s found dead in a dark alley? Will his twin sister’s prayers be strong enough to keep him from going into the flames of Hell?

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.
