Latest Release


CHAINS BROKEN (Book 4, Divine Legacy Series):

The last and final book in the Divine Legacy Series, Chains Broken, follows the A.N.G.E.L.s as they continue on their journey. There will be wedding, Christmas, and New Year’s celebrations, which should bring about a fresh start…but will it?

 Kit’s battle is coming to a head. Can she overcome what is trying to lay hold, or will she succumb like her mother? Have the issues of anger been worked out within the team? Who will win the battle for the Outback? Will it be Pete and Charlie’s clan, or the other side? What about the other box? Do the A.N.G.E.L.s have a lead on it? Who will walk away the victor?

 These questions and more will be answered as this exciting series wraps up. Chains will be loosened, and hearts and lives will be connected in Chains Broken. (Book 4 of the Divine Legacy Series.)

1 Peter 5:8“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”

John 8:32“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Adventures of Chief and Sarge


Chief and Sarge are two adorable little guys who love adventure! Their biggest adventure was the day they were adopted by Trevor and Cassie from the orphanage. Trevor, was a retired Navy Senior Chief, and also worked with the Marines. One of his military buddies, Mark English, helped run a home for children without families. When the little guys got there, Trevor’s friend, Mark, called him up and told him about them. Trevor went to visit them in the orphanage. When Trevor met them, found out their names, and got to know them a little bit, he knew they were meant for them. He told Cassie about them, and the rest, so they say, is history!

 When Trevor and Cassie took them home with them, Chief (the koala) and Sarge (the monkey) were pleasantly surprised to find that they were surrounded by more than just Trevor and Cassie. Trevor’s mom, ‘Oumie’ (grandma) Lynda lived there, and immediately wanted to love on the little guys! Trevor’s service dog, Delilah, a gentle giant, looked after them as one of the pack. And, last, but certainly not least, was the wise old cat named Sampson. Sampson was always good for guidance and direction. Together, they all live on peaceful Serenity Acres. While they are not related by blood, they are united by heart, love, and loyalty. They are truly a family in heart.

These little guys create an adventure every time they get into the car! They are a fun, life-loving pair that will keep you smiling! You may find the family out on an adventure near you. They go on some real-life adventures, along with some adventures of the imagination of two youngsters! If you see them out and about, go ahead and ask for a picture.
