I always sign my copies of LOOSE THREADS with a line from the book: "There's hope. Look." It's a truth that I hold most dear. I do rest in sovereignty and believe in providence. Those beliefs maintain hope in my heart and mind no matter how dire the circumstances. I've lived through dark experiences, yet there's always light deep within. I may not see it in the moment, but my work is to keep looking for it and grasping through the shadows.
I think of my novels as whispers into the ears of readers. "There's hope. Look."
