WHERE HOME IS

hazel's blog photo

Where Home Is was the working title of the novel that is now The Survivalist’s Daughter. Kindra, the main character, kidnapped by her father when she was a toddler, is sixteen when she learns that the woman she has always believed to be her mother is, in fact, her stepmother. When the woman she has called “Mom” for as long as she can remember is killed in an FBI raid and her father is arrested for illegal gun selling, she learns the truth and is taken from her isolated mountain home to her birth mother’s home in small town Kansas. The changes in her life are many:

  • She must adjust to a new mother, three sisters, and a stepfather.
  • She must attend a public high school; previously she had been home-schooled.
  • She misses and worries about her baby brother, Michael, who was taken into protective custody.

Even as Kindra begins to adjust to her new life, she knows that no place can truly be home without Michael in it. But what can she do? The FBI won’t tell her where he is.

The Survivalist’s Daughter addresses several current social problems, including parental kidnapping, the reunion of a kidnapped child with the left-behind parent, and overcoming a traumatic event.

Kindle Countdown Sale starts December 8. The Survivalist’s Daughter, regularly $2.99 will be available for 99 cents until December 14, 2015.

WHAT HAPPENED

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS?

 

HAZEL_BLOG_POST_PHOTO_BOOK copy

The Night before Christmas, my first novel, is currently on sale. Regularly priced at $2.99, the special December price is 99 cents.

The Night before Christmas is not a warm and loving Christmas story, but a book about one family’s tragic Christmas. The need to write the book came one day in 1970 when I heard a news report about a man who killed his children on Christmas Eve. My immediate reaction to that heart-wrenching, horrifying act was a question: Why would a man do that? I set about writing the novel in an attempt to answer that question. The main character, Wes Myers, loves his children, but he fears their souls are being corrupted, and the only way to save their souls is to send them to Heaven to be with Jesus. Over the years, I have heard other news accounts of similar murders in which children were killed for that very reason.
