I’ve dreamed of writing a novel since I was a small child. Dreamed of seeing it published and shelved beside my favorite authors’ novels in the library and local bookstore. And God, in all His grace and mercy, has given me my dream. In a few short months, I’ll get to literally hold that dream in my hands. Share it with others.
My debut novel How to Charm a Beekeeper’s Heart will release with White Rose Publishing (Pelican Book Group) on November 1, 2016. This story is a 2012 ACFW First Impressions finalist and a 2014 Seekerville Pitch Perfect winner.
Weddings are the last thing beekeeper Huck Anderson wants to be associated with, considering his past. So when he inherits a building occupied by a bridal boutique, he aims to evict the failing business and open a sporting goods store. Until his tenant ends up being Arianne Winters, a woman he’s indebted to from a mistake made years ago.
When a life-threatening injury derails Huck entirely, Arianne offers a compromise to keep her boutique, and her life, out of bankruptcy—she’ll aid in his lengthy recovery if he’ll allow her to remain in his building. But nursing her adversary proves challenging when her adolescent crush resurfaces. Amidst a battle-of-wills, their lives intertwine in unexpected ways, providing opportunity to overcome their pasts and start anew.
Will this confirmed bachelor consider holy-matrimony, or will Huck’s choices sting them a second time?
