New book! GOD WHISPERER
10% of author royalties will be donated to the American Society for Deaf Children.
I am so happy to be here again. Thank you, Delilah.
When I posted in April, I was super-excited about the upcoming releases of our SEALS OF SUMMER Military Superbundle. Thanks to you wonderful readers, we hit the NY Times Bestselling list. Wowza, it’s still such a dream come true!
Since April, I’ve released another book in the SEAL EXtreme Team series, LOCK and LOAD, and am working on book 3. I love, love, love the SEALs. Writing about them makes my heart go pitter-patter. But sometimes I need to go in a different direction when a story grabs hold of my heart and won’t let go until I write it.
GOD WHISPERER is a romantic and inspirational suspense. I hope you all like it (she says as she chews her nails). It’s different and personal. My son was the inspiration behind the book because he was born with a very rare defect called Atresia—meaning no ear canal. He was also missing an eardrum. The surgeon at UCLA drilled a hole and created an eardrum from tissue behind my son’s ear. The auditory ossicles, or hearing bones, vibrated to sound on the operating table. When my boy could hear out of both ears for the first time? Holy moly, what a miracle!
While the book is pure fiction, a river of truth flows through the pages. The emotions? Those are mine. The fear of losing a child, the elation and gratitude of a surgery that changes everything, the joy? Mine, mine, mine. Wanting to help others? You guessed it. 10% of my royalties will be donated to the American Society for Deaf Children to help families and children. When you buy the book, you help, too. Thank you so much.
I’d love to hear what you think of the book. Honest reviews and emails make my day. You can write to me at email@example.com.
A frightened mother on the run…
LONNIE HOGAN has lived and breathed fear for the eight years she and her son have been on the run. She cut ties with the past and is hiding out in a small offbeat Danish community in California. Will the killers find them? She’s ready to run again, or fight for her son’s precious life, but she won’t let anyone take David.
A desperate man searching for his family…
Few people on St. John, Virgin Islands, know their favorite doctor, MARK NORTON, is a desperate man searching for the life that was stolen from him. After hours, he surfs the internet for leads and retraces paths gone stone-cold to find his missing family. He’ll do anything to find them and get his son back.
Will sacrifice everything to protect the boy who hears God…
DAVID HOGAN is a regular kid, if you don’t count the one-ear thing. He didn’t mind being deaf in one ear, but it hurt his mom, way down deep, as if she caused it. Why won’t she see bad things can happen for good reasons? Like the ear surgery that allowed him to hear God. Talking to God is one of the greatest things to ever happen to him, even if Mom doesn’t believe it. But the killers can find them now. Can one little kid save them all?

My friend’s son had the cochlear implants done. Now, when the dog barks, he laughs and laugh and laughs. They don’t know how his brain is interpreting the sounds, but to him, they are absolutely hilarious. Sound is a miracle, any way you slice it; I love your take on it. What a beautiful twist!
Thanks, A. Catherine! That is interesting. I love that your little friend enjoys the dog bark. 😆
What’s interesting about my son is that his ear is working, but some sounds he doesn’t hear at all–mostly the high frequency sounds. I think it is because his brain hasn’t completely processed the fact that his ear hears now. Amazing stuff.
