Welcome to my home online from home! I thought I'd take this chance to introduce myself and give you an idea of what to expect from me here.
My first Christian book was Sing to Me, which I published under the name Ali M. Cross in...2018, I think? It was meant to be the first in a series, but I got caught up in writing speculative fiction and then life got a hold of me...you know the drill. But the truth is, I have more Christian romance stories in me, so I'm just going to have to focus and get 'er done.
It was Dani Pettrey's books that made me want to write in this genre. If you haven't read them yet, you ought to! I particularly liked her Alaskan Courage series. I love mystery and suspense, but when there's a theme of faith or hope and it touches my heart - I love those stories best of all.
Which is why I wanted to write them, too!
I wrote two Christian books: Sing to Me, which I envisioned as part of a series, and Never Again - a stand alone. I decided to start with Sing to Me - partly because I knew it had a few other books coming along behind it, but also maybe because I'm not a fan of the title "Never Again." Gonna have to come up with something better when I finally do publish it.
Which I will. Pinky swear.
I've finally figured out what I want from my career and instead of just wishing for it, I'm actively working on it. And that includes writing one Noble book a year. I'd like to promise more than that, but the reality is one is a good, reasonable goal.
I'll post here once a week on a variety of topics that might interest people like you and me. Things like good, faith-building books, uplifting stories and movies, and maybe from time to time, my testimony.
I also have a newsletter that I email once a month and any time I have a new release. You can subscribe by scrolling to the bottom of this page and clicking on the subscribe button.
I can't tell you how good it feels to have figured some things out in my life. It feels like my publishing career has been fraught with pain, but I at last feel free of that. I hope I can hold onto this good feeling well into the future. It's good to feel good!
