Writing and publishing this book has been such a process of learning, prayer, late nights, cough drops, tears, technical difficulties, love, and community. I’m so thrilled to be able to show it to you at long last.
To celebrate the book launch, I’m doing a blog tour this week (check out the box in the right sidebar). I hope you’ll stop by to visit all these amazing bloggers’ sites. Here’s the schedule:
Here’s the synopsis of The Illuminator’s Gift, a fantasy novel for readers ages 9-14 (and the young at heart):
Ellie is a twelve-year-old orphan who desperately wants a family. She just doesn’t expect to find one in the crew of the Legend, a flying ship in a secret rescue fleet. On board, she meets a boy with a pet tarantula, a bully with eyes like mirrors, and a librarian who can read eighteen languages. Unexpectedly, Ellie also discovers a powerful gift that only she can wield. But when the Legend is called to a dangerous rescue mission, Ellie risks losing everyone she loves. Will her mysterious gift be enough to save her and her friends from a deadly enemy bent on destroying their world?
