Dear Readers, Elizabeth Goddard is a longtime friend. I was privileged to mentor her early in her career. She has grown way beyond my mentoring, and I love her romantic suspense novels. You will, too.
It may be midnight or midday
It's never early, never late
He gon' stand by what He claim
I've lived enough life to say
Help is on the way (roundin' the corner)
Do you have a favorite Bible verse? And why is it a favorite? Have a lot of scriptures I turn to on any given day, week, month, or year. I especially love Isaiah 49:15-16
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget, I will not forget you!
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.
I love this verse because I read it at a time when I was feeling desperate, and it seemed to go straight to my heart, to my marrow—God will not forget me. The scripture is filled with so much passion and emotion. Don’t you think?
Yes, verse 16 is a favorite of mine, too. What is the one thing you wish you could go back and change in your life? Only ONE thing? Ha ha! You jest. I certainly wish I had started writing sooner.
What is the most important characteristic for a good friend to have? A listening ear.
What extracurricular activities did you participate in when you were in school? Volleyball, racquetball, tennis, French club, science club—to name a few.
What is your favorite movie of all times? There are too many movies that I love, but I think I really love the old Cecil B. DeMille version of The Ten Commandments (even though it’s not historically accurate) The movie was directed and produced by a man who believed in God, and you can sense the anointing in the movie.
Please give us the first page of the book.
Chance Carter should have known this last delivery wouldn’t go
down without a hitch.
A monstrous thunderhead had popped up in a clear morning sky and now loomed directly in his path as if forbidding, or at least challenging, his approach to his destination—a lone airstrip in Nowhere, Montana. As an experienced pilot and courier for an airfreight company, inclement weather didn’t concern him as much as the troubled feeling in his chest, which he’d been trying to ignore since takeoff.
Given the cold, hard stone of unease that had settled in his gut, he’d failed miserably.
Earlier this morning, back at the FBO—fixed-based operator—the rhythm of his flight prep had seemed off. Excitement hadn’t pumped through his every movement, and the usual bounce to his step hadn’t accompanied him while he worked through his preflight checks. If that hadn’t been enough, dread had replaced the anticipation that had always filled him as he readied to climb into the cockpit of his Piper Cherokee 235, which he affectionately called Ole Blue.
Now, as he neared the airstrip, he shook off the apprehension and grabbed on to the assurance earned from years of experience and hours spent piloting.
