It's here!!

It’s been my dream to write (and publish) fiction since I attempted my first Nancy Drew-esque novel in junior high. Six years ago, I began to seriously pursue fiction writing, but after completing three manuscripts (and still not finding a publisher), I was discouraged. It seemed like this dream had been a waste of time.

Then Kregel Publications picked up my third novel—the story of a woman's search for the son she lost in a failed adoption. The whirlwind began…contracts, rewriting, marketing, more rewriting. But the process didn’t quite seem real until I received my first copy of Together for Good in the mail this week and opened the cover. My novel. Amazing.

I thank God for His faithfulness. And I’m grateful for the friends and family who’ve supported and prayed for me during this journey.

Oh wow! It's finally here, or rather, there.

I am so thrilled for you, Melanie!

I remember when we talked about our books at Mount Hermon.
What a joy to celebrate this with you!
Huge blessings,
