A Place Called Grace

Leah McPhillen is unlucky when it comes to love… every man she has ever cared for left her without explanation… When she finally meets a man who piques her interest, a horrendous crash interrupts their date…

Meet Fran Driscoll

Fran Driscoll (formerly Roberts) was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although she loved the people and her Green Bay Packers, she relocated to the Gulf Coast to enjoy six months of summer and NO winter. She currently teaches middle school in Pascagoula, MS, and truly enjoys a challenge. Her first two books were devotionals, brought about by a curse she prayed upon herself as a young child: “Lord, please don’t ever let my life be boring.” The first book is “31 Prayers for the Addict I Love” written after the untimely death of two addicted loved ones. The second is “31 Prayers for When Life Isn’t Fair” at the request of a fellow teacher. Driscoll’s first fiction novel, “A Place Called Grace,” is an action-packed Christian Romance. The sequel, “A Place Without Mercy,” was released in December, 2016. Following that were several short stories, three in Mobile Writers Guild Anthologies “Pieces,” “Mardi Gras Pieces,” and “Valentine’s Day Pieces” as well as a short story in “The Trouble With Cupid: 10 Short Mysteries Spiced with Romance.” Novel number three, “A Broken Place,” is loosely tied to the first two “Place” novels, but can stand alone as can the 2019 novella “No Second Place.” Other McPhillen stories are still to come, since just about every day something happens that would make a great story (back to that aforementioned curse). Driscoll has also published several poems and short stories, and loves to read as much as write. She lives in Pascagoula with her sweet husband, two talented daughters, & four dogs (the amount of animals could vary at any time, though). She has a grown son in South Carolina who also happens to be her favorite preacher & who has recently married a wonderful girl named Kim. Driscoll is a former member of Gulf Coast Writer’s Association and Mobile Bay Writer’s Project, co-Vice President of Mobile Writer’s Guild, and is forever indebted to the wonderful and gifted West Mobile Writer’s Group.

Escape to Osprey Cove

What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married.

Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in happily ever after — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home.

Authors Note: The Osprey Cove Lodge series is uniquely written, spanning seven geographic locations from the scenic Canadian region of the Rideau lakes to the beautiful shores of the Caribbean. An interesting web of mystery develops as the characters’ lives intertwine. The setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge series was born from my love of the beauty of this region in Canada. The description of the lodge is so beautiful and inviting that you will want to pack your bags and head there. The series is written in a continuing fashion; please be sure to read the books in the order written.


Meet Luisa Marietta Gold

After her only daughter was born, she relocated to North Carolina, where she worked as a Realtor and began running a recreational business with her husband. She currently resides on eleven acres near a lake reminiscent of the Rideau lake chain that provides the setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge Series.

Among her many interests are painting, cooking, baking. And of course, writing and storytelling. But it’s the simple things of life that bring the most enjoyment — the beauty of the trees outside the window of her writing room as they change with the seasons and watching her kitties interact and play. Nearly all of these interests and life experiences are reflected in her books.
