Hooray! New Jo Grant Mystery from Sally Wright

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ April 6, 2016

 FINALLY, Behind The Bonehouse, the second Jo Grant horse country mystery, is ready for preorder on Amazon, and will be available on April 10th as an ebook, and shortly thereafter in paperback.

Wright says, “This is a book that means a lot to me. It connects to my past and my present, and maybe predicts my future. It clearly deals with the grace of God and the plans he has for all of us.”

It wasn’t until thirty years...


I Love These Stories!

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ March 31, 2016


I love these stories!

At long last the series I began as the Cambridge Collection for Regal Books, then completed as The Cambridge Chronicles for Crossway, is coming back with a whole new look as the Where There is Love Series from Verity Press.

After almost a quarter of a century working with these books I can still say, “These are wonderful stories!” Don’t get me wrong— this isn’t any kind of authorial pride. These are wonderful stories because of what these people of outstanding faith did in real life.

I vividly recall being inspired in my own faith when I read of their struggles and triumphs and I prayed to be able to tell their stories in a way that would bring them alive for modern readers. That is still...


Classic Irish Soda Bread

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ March 18, 2016


My tradition has always been to make soda bread for St. Patrick's Day. This year was no exception, but, I must say, the product was exceptional. I used a book our daughter bought in Ireland years agho Classic Irish Rercipes by Georgina Campbell. All the recipes in the book look great, including three soda bread recipes. Here's the super-easy, Traditional White Soda Bread as I made it:

4 cups all-purpose flour (I used unbleached)

1/2 teaspoon salt (mine was rounded a bit)

1 teaspoon baking soda (again, rounded)

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 3/4 cups buttermilk (the recipe calls for 1 cup,...


Fay Sampson Discovers Frankenstein and Family Roots in Great Fulford

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ February 27, 2016

For my husband’s birthday we attended a promenade performance of Frankenstein by the Four of Swords theatre company. This took place in the historic manor house of Great Fulford.

Getting there was an adventure in itself. On a dark country lane we picked out the white sign that read FRANKENSTEIN – GREAT FULFORD. ...


An Inspired Fay Sampson Muses on Inspiration

By Fay Sampson ~ February 10, 2016

Writing is addictive. Throughout my writing career, I have not finished writing one book before the next one has been pushing to be written. Sometimes there is a log jam of ideas. I have to prod the pile and see which is the next one to float free.

But towards the end of last year I realised that this wasn’t happening. It wasn’t writer’s block. I had several ideas for books I could write and would enjoy writing. But none of them had that imperative I’d been used to

I wondered whether...


Fay Sampson Celebrates a Golden Anniversary

By Fay Sampson ~ December 14, 2015

 I almost overlooked it. When the hardback of my latest crime thriller, The Wounded Thorn, came out in February I thought it was my 49th book. Since I was 80 this year, I thought it would have been nice for this to have been my 50th

Then, a few months ago, I discovered that a small book I had written for the Association of Christian Writers, Your Guide to Creating a Christian Writer Group, had been published two years ago by Media Associates International as an ebook available on Amazon. 

Suddenly the numbers changed. The Wounded Thorn was now...
