Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing Nancy Mehl, a multi-published novelist. Her latest romantic suspense novel was just released December 4, the first book in her Kaely Quinn Profiler series.
Nancy, please tell us about your latest book, Mind Games.
FBI Behavioral Analyst Kaely Quinn’s methods may be unorthodox, but her talent is undeniable. She’s established a new life after being demoted and transferred to St. Louis when a reporter revealed she’s the daughter of an infamous serial killer. But when that same reporter claims to have received an anonymous poem predicting a string of murders, ending with Kaely’s, it seems her old life has followed her.
Her new partner, Special Agent Noah Hunter, is forced to move past his skepticism of her approach so they can work together to unravel the deadly riddle.
With a brazen serial killer on the loose, Noah and Kaely must race to catch the murderer. Read More →
Hello from Colorado’s Front Range. Davalynn Spencer, here, hanging on to my hat in these blustery, wintry days and welcoming author Debbie W. Wilson for an insider’s look at life in authorland.
Debbie, I’m intrigued by your title, Little Women, Big God: It’s not the size of your problems but the size of your God. Can you tell me who I’ll meet between the covers of this book?
You’ll meet the surprising women in Jesus’ family tree as they journey through impossible circumstances and see it doesn’t matter how big of a mess we’ve made in our lives or how much we’ve lost. Little faith in a big God changes destinies.
That sounds hopeful and reminds me of lyrics in a song by MercyMe: “A little faith is all I have, right now.”
While researching these women and their unique backgrounds, did you discover anything surprising?
Reading the biblical account from the point of view of these women opened my eyes to how hard life was for them. Bathsheba surprised me most. I was thrilled to see how God exonerated and honored her. Read More →
Greetings from Marti Pieper in Florida, where fall comes without colored leaves and only sometimes with cooler temperatures! We’re presently grateful for nights when we can open windows and leave the air conditioning off, even though temperatures still climb into the ’80s during the day.
Where today’s featured author lives, however, the temperatures are considerably cooler year-round. I got to know Grace Fox through CAN and through another author’s group to which we both belong. I’ve long admired her ability to use her words to touch hearts and change lives. Let’s take time to catch up with her now.
Welcome, Grace, to the CAN blog. Can you please tell us about your latest book?
It’s an 11-week Bible study titled Forever Changed. It’s based on the premise that our thoughts shape our beliefs, beliefs influence behavior, and behavior determines our destiny. Aligning our thoughts with truth, then, is vital for life transformation. I wrote it for “First Place 4 Health”—for people wanting to improve their well-being specifically through weight loss—but anyone can use it whether or not they’re involved in a FP4H small group. Available at First Place 4 Health. Read More →

Happy November from Kevin Thompson! It’s three weeks from Turkey Day, and less than eight weeks until St. Nick makes his yearly jaunt. My, how time flies. Same can be said about raising children. They’re little only once, and before you know it, they’re gone, which creates a great segue for the introduction of our next CAN guest, Sarah Hamaker.
Welcome, Sarah! Please tell us about your latest book, Ending Sibling Rivalry: Moving Your Kids From War to Peace.
While conflict among your kids is inevitable, it is possible to raise your children to think well of one another and to get along most of the time. Ending Sibling Rivalry provides a blueprint for reducing sibling conflict and building a calmer, loving relationship among your children. Read More →
