A Wing and a Prayer

She’s dead-set on giving everything to the war overseas … Even if it means losing everything in a war of the heart. A street orphan abused and abandoned by an alcoholic father at age five, Gabriella (Gabe) O’Connor has never let a man stand in her way yet. So when a handsome flight officer thwarts her plans to become a Women Airforce Service Pilot, she’s determined to join the war effort anyway she can. Her chance comes when she “borrows” foreign correspondent credentials from the Boston Herald—where her father is the editor—to stow away on a medical ship to the front. Lieutenant Alex Kincaid pegs Gabe O’Connor as trouble the moment she steps foot on Avenger Field as a WASP cadet. As the eldest brother of a boy whose jaw Gabe broke in grade school, Alex is familiar with her reputation as both a charismatic ringleader and a headstrong hooligan who’s challenged every male and nun from grade school to college. As her WASP flight instructor, Alex eventually expels Gabe when she pulls a dangerous stunt. But when he is an evacuation pilot in France eight months later, their lives intertwine once again, exposing them to a danger as perilous as the German tanks roaming the Reichswald Forest: a love that neither expects.

Forever 1982: A Sweet Romance Across Time

To some, home is not a place but a time.

For every child of the 1980s who’s ever said, “I want to go back.”

A nostalgic romance with a spiritual bent.

Michael “Mickey” Collins is a Generation X writer lost in a Generation Z world. He graduated from high school in 1982 and joined the Marines. A year later, he was severely burned by a terrorist bombing in Lebanon. Now, he pines for the past. Specifically, for 1982, his “last good year.”

Upon moving back to his childhood home, he receives a mysterious letter addressed to him and postmarked more than forty years ago. It’s a response from a young woman named Laura Harlech to a pen pal request he’d placed in a magazine more than four decades prior.

For literary inspiration, he writes a mock response that gets mailed by an overly conscientious mailman. But much to Mickey’s shock, he receives a reply. The logic defying reality sinks in that he has a pen pal across time. Mickey and Laura begin corresponding. Friendly banter turns into something deeper. For the first time in his life, Mickey finds himself in love. But love is hard when you have to go back to the past to realize your future. Can Mickey and Laura overcome the ultimate long distance relationship?

Chock full of 80s nostalgia—the music, the television, the movies, the fads, the events and personalities—this short but very sweet novel about love letters is itself a love letter to the greatest decade of all-time. No, it won’t change your life. But it will take you back to the time before life changed. So, dust off your VCR, put on your painter’s cap, and stick a Styx tape in your Walkman…and prepare to enter a world where it’s Forever 1982.

Know me through my writing. It’s all in there. My life story is in my stories. And I’m not a “brand.” Brands are for bread and soda, not people.

There are literally millions of writers putting out those kinds of books. But if you’re looking for something different and unlike anything else you’ve ever read, something honest and real, I invite you to give my books a try.

To make things even worse, the two weeks she’s at the ranch is scheduled as a marriage retreat called Two Hearts, and she’s the only single guest in attendance. Then she meets Reed Montgomery, a tall, good-looking Texan, who just happens to be the owner of the Circle Bar T and the man in charge of solving Tory’s housing dilemma.

Even though Reed acts like a Christian, Tory senses right away that things aren’t right with Reed and his relationship with God. It also doesn’t take her long to find out Reed is a confirmed bachelor, with no plans to change his status. That’s fine with Tory, as she has also made the decision to stay single. And she knows it’s much more important that Reed get his life right with God than have a romantic relationship with her. Tory and Reed quickly become friends, but both wonder if God could have brought the two of them together for another reason. Will friendship win out in the end, or will God lead them to something more?
