The dream of this day began a long time ago, when I received the gift of an editor who said, “If you could write anything you’d like, what would it be. We’d like to hear your ideas.” I let my mind drift in an entirely new direction than what I’d been writing.

And the Tree of Life series was born.

It went through hoops, obviously. Brainstorming, tweaking, pitching to the publishing team, answering questions, refining a vision. And then it was a go! Four books, releasing one every six months for two years.

And here we are, celebrating the release of The Inn at Hidden Run. It brought me so much joy to write this book, and I hope it will bring you great pleasure to read it.

In the Tree of Life series, stories are uncovered and woven together by the endearing duo of Jillian and her father, Nolan, and characters learn about who they are, where they come from, and their unique faith journeys as they discover their own trees of life. It all starts when Meri runs as far as she can get from her family and discovers that Jillian and Nolan have her back, no matter what.
