Carolyn Steele
Willow Springs
Crissa Engleson, an immigrant from Sweden, fled Boston hoping to start a new life, unknown and unencumbered, in the West. The quiet Pony Express town of Willow Springs in the Utah desert seemed the perfect spot until the intrigue of her past and rivalries of the town’s leading families envelope her. She falls in love with an Express rider, Drake Adams, but their courtship is thwarted by blackmail and treachery. Crissa must decide which is stronger: her desire for Drake, her own safety, or her love for the two young children left in her charge.

Willow Springs is written for anyone who enjoys Westerns, History, Romance or Intrigue. Men and women alike have expressed great interest in this story.

Dustin Bradshaw
Counting Candles

"James Smith is an ordinary man, with an ordinary name, leading an ordinary life.

Little does he know his seemingly insignificant acts of kindness--from saying hello to the doorman every day to leaving a generous tip for a waitress--make a difference. All James can see is others' successes compared to his failings as a husband, father, and friend. So when his wife decides to throw him a birthday party, James has no idea that the gift he receives is going to change his perspective--and his life.

COUNTING CANDLES invites us all to take a step back and recognize our extraordinary worth no matter how ordinary we may feel."

LoraLee Evans
The Birthright
As a young girl, Miriam must flee her home in a Lamanite village to escape her birthright- to be offered as a sacrifice to the Lamanite gods.  During her flight in the deep jungles, Miriam crosses paths with Jacob, an young Nephite soldier who saves her life and leads her to safety among the Nephites.

Years later, now a young woman, Miriam meets Jacob again.  She is surprised to find that the sisterly affection she felt for him so long ago has developed into something deeper.  But before she or Jacob can discover their true feelings for one another, war comes to the lands of the Nephites, and both Miriam and Jacob find themselves thrown into a whirlwind of struggles.   As they fight to keep their faith alive, they are drawn even closer together.

Randy Lindsay
The Gathering 

Robert Williams didn't expect an early honorable release from his mission, but upon his return home, he sees the reason for the surprise decision. Unemployment, rampant violence, and frequent food shortages have put the United States on the brink of another civil war. As the threads of society unravel, the Williams family must adapt to drastic changes as the long-foretold gathering begins to take place.

Mike Bast
Death's Academy
Midnight Smith has a problem—he is a Hoodie. Well, almost. He’s got to go through Death’s Academy so he can learn the ropes of how to snuff out Shorties like you and me, and how to outsmart those pesky Halos. Then he'll get his shroud and calling and become a full fledged Reaper.

 But to get into Death’s Academy, there is a mother difficult exam.  It's going to take everything Midnight has to prepare for the test and it still probably won't be enough, because he's always sucked at exams.

What he doesn't know, is that the exam will be the least of his worries soon enough. Because when the Deaths and Halos go on their yearly retreat, the time is ripe for an old enemy to strike. The only ones left to stop the attack are Midnight and his friends—and that's something he just can't fail at.

Dorine White
The Emerald Ring 

Twelve year old Sara Guadalupe Bogus spends the last few days of summer anticipating middle school and helping her Grandma Dora around the house. Her ordinary life turns upside down when she discovers an emerald ring once belonging to Cleopatra. Touching the ring sends a lightening like zap through her system, while putting the ring upon her finger causes it to stick like glue.

Now strange things are happening to Sara. She has troubling visions, can understand animals and learns to transform herself into an Egyptian cat. However, the worst thing is the strange man that shows up in town. He is hunting for the emerald ring, and will not stop until he acquires it. With the ring stuck on her finger, Sara has no choice. She can be hunted, or become the hunter.
