Meet D. H. Parker and WIN her book!

I'd like to introduce a new author (well, she's new to me, anyway). I met Donna on one my writing loops, and her commitment and love for the Lord is something that touches me deeply. So now, I'd like for her to have the opportunity to touch all of you!

Donna has published a number of novels, and since small presses don't have the man-power and money to promote their work, I want to lend a hand to this talented author.

So now . . . please allow me to introduce Donna!

Donna (D. H.) Parker was born in the rural Missouri Ozarks during an ice storm. Despite some circumstantial evidence to the contrary, she did not grow up in the 1800s. The most important things in her life are her Christianity and her family. She loves books, both reading and writing them; old things and their histories; and music, especially Celtic and bluegrass fiddle music. She and her husband of nearly four decades currently live in Alabama. They have two adult sons.

Today, I'd like to introduce you to her book titled: SONG OF HEALING.

The Man from the Sea is in the legend, in the prophesy, in little Sarah Macneill's heart--until the traumatic reality of growing up buries her beloved fantasy. Will the unexpected and unwanted resurrection of things past lead the adult Sarah to destruction or to her Song of Healing?

Donna, what do you hope readers will walk away with after reading SONG OF HEALING?

I've always been a writer, but I began my quest for publication because as a reader I found so few stories that Christians could enjoy without wading through profanity and/or "steamy" romance. I didn’t sit down to write Song of Healing with a message in mind. I merely wanted readers to have a good story. But, as the book evolved, it may have taken on a message. As a Christian, I sometimes hear people call religion “only myth”, so maybe this story is, in an allegorical way, partly a reaction to that. In general, I would like readers to finish any of my books feeling uplifted, entertained and reassured that happy endings still exist.

Click on the book if you wish to buy it!

I love a book with a great story and a happy ending! Thank you, Donna. I'm honored that you were willing to stop by and share not only your book with us, but a part of yourself as well.

  10. D. H. Parker is a new author for me.
    I would love to win one of her books.
    I can relate to her disappointment with
    books that had the potential to be good
    only to muddy the reading with profanity.
    I appreciate starting a book knowing that
    I don't have to worry about that sort of
    stuff. And the story much have a happy
    ending. After all it is fiction, let's
    have an ending we want.
