O is for The Oath


Another one I haven't yet read, but as I mentioned in my F is for Frank and Francine post, Frank Peretti is a fave of mine. The Oath was published in 1995, and was the winner of the 1996 ECPA Gold Medallion Book Award. It is described as a horror/fantasy.  A body is found in the woods …

M and N… Mordor and Narnia


Hi folks. I'm cheating a bit today, after a busy weekend. So putting Saturday's post and today's together . Taking a look at Mordor and Narnia together. Could they be Hell and Heaven? Mordor certainly sounds like hell with its fire and ash, poisonous gases, and sleepless evil. It's thought to be based geographically in …

I is for Ironside


No, not the American detective in a wheelchair 🙂 As I've been making my way through this year's April AtoZ Challenge on the theme of Christian Fiction, I've been trying to read some of the genre that I'd never heard of. So I called upon some fellow members of the Association of Christian Writers for …

H is for Heaven


A writing friend of mine bought me the Mitch Albom book, 'Tuesdays with Morrie'. It might be one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. My friend had considered buying Albom's other popular work,  'The Five People you Meet in Heaven' but didn't. I was glad she plumped for Tuesdays. It wasn't long after …
