Greetings from Colorado. Davalynn Spencer here, welcoming author Sandra Orchard today.
Sandra, tell us about your book.
Over Maya Dead Body is book 3 in my Serena Jones Mysteries series about a plucky FBI agent who specializes in art crime. Serena is supposed to be enjoying a little R&R on Martha’s Vineyard, but trouble finds her again—this time in the form of an antiquity smuggling ring that is not above murder.
That sounds exciting and out of the ordinary, for sure. Has God used the message of your book in your own life?
While on Martha’s Vineyard to research the novel, I discovered the unique beauty of sea glass and people’s passion for collecting it. This combination struck me as a powerful metaphor for life. At one time or another, most of us have felt broken, ugly or unwanted, just as sea glass once was. But over time, the action of the waves and rocks and sand transform it into something sought after and treasured.
Now whenever I look at the dish of sea glass I’ve collected, I’m reminded that the Lord can use difficult circumstances to hone strengths and positive qualities in me…if I’m willing. We are all a treasure in the making. Read More →
