Cover Art  sitting  silence sings final

  2. Sarah—I can’t wait to read these novels. Let me know when and where I can get them. I was telling mom how much I loved your writing in high school. Keep in touch and I am so happy that your dreams are coming true!!!
    Love and God Bless you!!

    1. Lori- You found me! How cool. Publication is probably still a long way off, but I’m working at it. Thanks for following my blog–hope you and your family are doing great!

  3. Hi, Sarah Anne,
    I came across your name in Rachelle Gardner’s blog and for whatever reasons, was drawn to your name and found your blog. How wonderful that I did! I absolutely love your heading “Everyday miracles happen everyday” and I love your Psalm passage, but especially the ideas for your books! They sound creative, unique and compelling. I am a Northern transplant with Tennessee roots … and love Asheville. Please feel free to visit us on our blog, BIrth of a Novel, when you can.

  4. I am so glad to have discovered your blog today, via a comment you left on Books and Such. I grew up in Hendersonville, NC! We live in Raleigh now. But I loved seeing that you are in Asheville. 🙂

  5. So happy to have found your blog. . .my grandparents are in French Creek and it is my most favorite place on earth.

  6. Sarah – You are not too far from me. I live in Abingdon, Va. I recognized the Now & Then: The Appalachian magazine. It is so good to see other Christian writers on Word Press. I always like to say hello to the other followers of Christ I come across online. I hope you find the right publishing opportunity. I feel the same as you about trusting God to bring it along.

  7. Hi Sarah. I’m planning a rare trip to the mountains for my kids. I thought of you. I have lost your contact info, so I googled you. Congratulations on your books! Needless to say, I’m more than a little envious. Send me an email with your contact info if you want to catch up. I assume you can see my email address, although it is not made public. Btw, when you wrote that poem about Narcissus, was it about me? That question is all kinds of ironic, isn’t it?

  8. How cool is this.. I was searching for some new books to read and came across yours. and then I saw you live in Asheville, NC.. I suspect we’re practically neighbors.. I live in Swannanoa 😀

    1. Such a small world! Yes, I live in East Asheville–probably drive by your house on my way to work in Black Mountain! You’ll have to come to the book launch party in August–I’d love to meet you.

  9. I am really anxious to read When Silence Sings! I am hoping we will read this for our church book club. (Hate I didn’t get approved to read the book through NetGalley.) But it is definitely on my to-read list!

      1. I will definitely let you know! I will let the person who is responsible for our book club meetings so we coordinate everything. I am so excited about the possibility!
