A Leap into Darkness
Magic stirs and a little dog speaks: the kingdom will fall. But will humans listen?
Jake is a fluffy little dog who just happens to be one of the Sculptor’s “wise ones” . . . but nobody’s told him. He’s certain he’s ordinary, and he knows he doesn’t deserve living in a rags to riches fairy tale where he’s been rescued from his hardscrabble life by the King of Gorseland and pampered and loved by his two royal children, Janice and James.
But the good life is threatened with the arrival of the sorcerer, Beezeldorn, and his raven. Beezeldorn is a seeming charlatan: a crowd-pleaser with his sleight-of-hand and cheap spectacle. But his power from dark magic runs deep, on display in town when he heals a leper.
The queen senses the danger and pays for her instincts with her life.
Jake knows something is wrong, but what can he do? Beezeldorn is always one step ahead, moving into the castle, earning the king’s confidence, and befriending James. Even Janice is drawn to him.
Now it’s up to Jake to protect his family . . . before it’s too late . . . for the king . . . and his kingdom.
A Leap into Darkness is an unforgettable, epic fantasy that will capture the hearts and imaginations of middle grade readers, teens, young adults, and adults alike, encouraging them to embrace hope and leap into life.

I Shall Not Want
Suzanne E. Uzzell wrote I Shall Not Want to share with her readers a powerful inspirational spiritual word of encouragement from a sermon she preached. She decided to create a e-Book that would embody this preached word along with added thoughts that would impact the reader’s life and challenge their faith to grow in God no matter what obstacles, calamities, situations they are encountering or may have to face on their life journey.
This e-Book will give a new perspective about how to navigate through life’s inevitable and learn how to trust God and elevate in faith by allowing a dependency to occur in the relationship between Heavenly Father and his children. God is waiting to shepherd his people. After reading this e-Book you will grow closer in a loving relationship with God and you will learn how to be fathered.
The Heavenly Grille Café
A shocking kidnapping will test her faith…
Can divine intervention save the day?
Amanda Turner is a young woman who has recently lost everything: her parents, her home, and her job. She packs all of her belongings into her old car and drives north from Tampa until she comes upon an out-of-the-way restaurant, accentuated by a huge golden halo instead of the more well-recognized golden arches. What will she find at The Heavenly Grille Café?
Kris makes an unlikely new friend for the devout Amanda. Kris has done everything in her power to be the ultimate “bad” girl, and does not believe in God. She is also seven months pregnant and has been abandoned by her live-in boyfriend. Despite this, the women become best friends and move in together so that Amanda can help take care of the baby girl, Charlotte Grace.
When Charlotte Grace is kidnapped, Amanda must tap into unknown reserves of faith, courage, and forgiveness to find her. The angels at the Grille can guide her, but in the end this is something Amanda must do on her own.
