Please help me welcome to my site, author, Mary Ball.
Welcome, Mary! I’m excited to have you back, again.
Thank you, Deborah. It’s wonderful to be back on your blog. I was reading your “Musings” page and contemplating your words of wisdom. I’m not one to chat about politics but when you think of our president you have to acknowledge that he’s the first leader in a long time who isn’t afraid to talk about the Lord, and the first president in, I don’t know when, to speak his mind without concern about pleasing “certain” groups of people.
I like your comment, “While we are focused on all this chaos, North Korea is launching test missiles with an ultimate goal to attack us.”
You’re right, and it’s what the Devil wants. One of his best defenses is to get the American people ridiculing one another, so we’ll take our eyes off of what’s really important.
Thank you for reading my article, Mary! But, yes, many people don’t understand, or even give thought, to the many ways the devil (I purposely don’t capitalize or use his real name, so as not to give him place or importance) uses subtle ways on us in order to implement his plan.
Jumping right in, please share with us a bit about yourself.
I’d like that. ☺
I’m a multi-published Christian author. Some of my novels include Escape to Big Fork Lake, Redemption in Big Fork Lake, Sparks of Love, and Thanksgiving Secret. I live in the beautiful State of North Carolina.
When I’m not working on a story, I enjoy fishing, reading, and ministering in song with hubby at various functions.
I’m excited to add that Aug.18, 2018 I’ll be on Preach the Word Network for their Book of the Month Author interview.
I hope readers will connect with me on Face Book or Twitter and visit my web sites.
Mary, tell us about your book, Sunny’s Dream.
Sunny Kast spends her week fighting cyber-crime, and dreaming of her prince charming.
When a man walks into Celestial Investigations, and introduces himself as Trouble, she’s sure he’s not her prince, and positive that he lives up to his name.
After Max Trouble finds an important document his life gets complicated with the know-it-all P.I. hired to track down its owner.
Sunny and Max’s relationship grows. She’s optimistic that he may be her prince charming, but after her car is sabotaged, and she’s almost killed Max’s chauvinist ideas of a female investigator surface.
Will she see God’s perfect plan, or a not-so-perfect relationship?
“Sunny’s Dream,” Celestial Investigation, book one. A Christian romantic suspense based on three sisters. Their P.I. skills come in handy in the quaint town of Mercy, North Carolina, a place where romance and mystery unite.
How did the intriguing idea for this book/series come about?
One day, I was driving home from an errand and glanced toward the sky when the idea of three sisters whose names’ matched the heavens nudged at me. The next thing I knew I was mapping out different scenarios for a series, Celestial Investigation. Sunny’s Dream is book one.
I really like your hero’s name – Max Trouble. Besides the obvious, any significance to it?
Not really. I was creating the blurb when his name came to me.
What is your goal with Sunny’s Dream and how well do you feel you achieved it?
The goal for my first book in the Celestial Investigation series is to illustrate that we all have faults. Sunny has a few. Max has several. His misguided ways shadowed their relationship.
I believe that I was able to bring forth the message that none of us are perfect but through God’s grace we can become a better person.
What prompted you to write in the romance/romantic suspense genre?
Before I began writing I read mostly romantic suspense and enjoyed a little twist with the romance. That influenced me. Now though, I enjoy many genres.
Where can readers find you and your books on the Internet?
