Who wouldn't want to be the hero of her own story?
Know a middle-grader (7-12) who's looking for a new historical fiction? One who wants to make a difference in his or her world? The Heart Changer is an adventure with short chapters that won't intimidate reluctant readers . . .
Here is a short synopsis:
"Can an Israelite captive, wrenched from all she loves, serve the very man who destroyed her village?
Miriam is asked to do the impossible: serve the wife of Naaman, commander of the Syrian army. Clinging to treasured memories of home and faith, Miriam faces captivity with worry and bitterness. Little does she know the Heart Changer is wooing and preparing her for a greater mission—far beyond what she could imagine."
I find my inspiration in everyday life, but in particular, when I travel the globe, observing the quirky things that happen along the way. I love to find a tiny historical gem when I tour - one most kids haven't discovered yet. And when I do, I fashion a backstory around that person or event, and bring it to life.
