Thriller Thursday: What they didn't expect from the family Bible

Maddie and Ellie, two characters in my book, find something unexpected when their sisters go searching for their hidden Christmas gifts one day. The family Bible. And it's stashed away in the depths of the crawlspace. They manage to get it up to their room, and they crack it open. Dust flies. Thin, leathery pages sift through to the floor. But then they reach the page where their births are recorded. Maddie had always been told she was born in 1990, and Ellie in 1991. But here, in this tiny, slanted handwriting, are their births recorded as 1820 and 1821.

Find out what happens next!

This record found in my family's Bible is what inspired this scene in my book:

Finally published

Well, I fail at keeping this blog up to date. To be honest, I've had a very difficult past month. Found out I was pregnant a month ago today, got sick, and then found out that I had a miscarriage. Very difficult  past month. My husband and I both want a baby so bad, and it was especially hard trying to explain to my almost 4 year old that the baby won't be coming anymore. She actually understands it better than I expected because she said, "I wish I could go in the sky and get your baby and she will be in your belly again."  Bless her little heart. 

But enough of the bad news. Finally FINALLY my book is published! Only ebook for now - sending away for the proof tomorrow for paperback. But here, if you have been waiting ever so patiently for my book to go up for sale, here tis!
