What do you like to read? Are you tired of the same old boy-meets-girl scenario, where their meeting is ruinous, and you spend the rest of your time reading about what you already knew would happen? I was, so I wrote Twelve Smooth Stones. For Christians who are attempting to live a holy life, many books that do have a great storyline are also filled with foul language and intimate scenes with too much information.
My purpose for writing books is fourfold:
- I wanted to give the Christian world a good read – a plot that twists and turns to a surprise ending.
- I wanted to keep it clean so that a sanctified reader wouldn’t need to worry about what he or she might read on the next page.
- As a lover of history, I chose to write historical fiction, so that my readers would not only be safely entertained but would learn to appreciate others real-live struggles as well.
- I wanted to write about genuine Biblical salvation: what it looks like and how the struggle unfolds into the best decision a person can make.

Thanks, Doleen. It’s been a very new experience, but God is using it in my life and hopefully in others as well! Another “coming soon” is a web site for the church. Tom is working on it and it’s in process! 🙂
