While we wait for your next books to be released, my wife and I searched through all your works, and selected Rhineland Inheritance – book 1 in the Rendezvous With Destiny series.
Having been written 20 years ago, I figured your more recent Marc Royce series would reflect a definite improvement in your writing skills. Truth is, you were already a gifted writer then. The good stuff just keeps coming!
One suggestion, though. We read together, and the extremely personal, emotionally poignant passages can choke me up, which makes reading difficult. So, maybe hereafter, you could just write something like, “Moving tenderly toward her, he said, ‘Yada, yada, yada.’”
It would be a lot less emotional, and we could use our imagination, and I wouldn’t get all choked up!! So now you know why I am not a writer.
Seriously, when Sally Anders opened up to Jake and described her fiancé, she was describing the godly man I want to be.
The man I want to be…? As in, when I grow up?? But 63 is pretty much already grown up, isn’t it? Fortunately, God is not finished with us until He calls us home.
It’s difficult to keep reading out loud to your spouse when the character in the book is “talking to you” about such monumental and eternal things.
So, when I say, “Thank you” for writing, you’ll understand that I mean a whole lot more.
As for my for my knowing you’re not a writer, sorry, I don’t get that at all. If this is related to your getting choked up, let me tell you, I just finished rereading a manuscript I’m in the process of completing, and I LOVED that I got choked up at a couple of points. This emotional bond to the characters is just vital.
