Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! If you attend any writers’ conferences in northern California, you’re sure to meet Jane Daly. Her brilliant smile and energetic personality make everyone feel welcome. I was thrilled when Jane joined CAN recently, and it’s an honor to introduce one of our newest members.

Jane, how did you get into writing? How many books do you have published?
As of September 1, I will have published two books. The first one was released in February of 2015, Because of Grace: A Mother’s Journey from Grief to Hope. This latest one is The Caregiving Season: Finding Grace to Honor your Aging Parents.
My plan was to write fiction. Then my son became ill and died a year later. I was encouraged by an acquisitions editor to write my story. I’d journaled all through his illness and after his death, so much of the book’s content came from my journals. Read More →
Greeting from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the privilege of interviewing Candy Arrington, whose nonfiction books have helped countless people through difficult times. Candy has plenty to share about how articles help promote her books and extend her ministry.
Candy, tell us about your books.
While my list of published books isn’t long, my first book, Aftershock: Help, Hope, and Healing in the Wake of Suicide (B & H Publishing Group), has been in print for eleven years, which is somewhat unusual for the current market. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin on a warm September day in California. I’ve entered a new phase in my life as my husband and I moved our oldest son into the dorms for his freshman year of college. New phases make you consider the future – what if the future involves caring for your parents? Did you know 25 percent of Americans are caring for an aging parent?
Today I have the honor of interviewing Candy Arrington, a speaker and prolific writer of magazine articles. Her most recent book is When Your Aging Parent Needs Care: Practical Help for this Season of Life from Harvest House. What an important topic! Her book covers: understanding your aging parent’s perspective on illness, aging, and giving up control; helping your parent with limited mobility, memory, and resources; effectively organizing forms, prescriptions, care, housing, and finances; and finding personal balance by nurturing their own health, faith, and family. Doesn’t that sound fantastic? Read More →
