Came across this lovely image and thought it was in my dreams!

An author friend has another book coming out in her very good series! Check it out!

I am thrilled to share that my novel "Lioness: Mahlah's Journey" will release in October of 2019 from Pelican Book Group (I know, traditional publishing is slow). This novel tells the story of the daughters of Zelophehad--five orphaned sisters who changed history.
This book won't be the last you hear from these brave girls.
