The Second in the Sarah Series,

Sarah: Laney’s Angel

 Will be released on May 22,

 Sarah is a little bit of I Love Lucy, I Dream of Jeanie, and Touched by an Angel.

When I began writing about a dyslexic angel, I had no idea she would be as popular as she is. I thank God He gave me the idea to write about a heavenly spirit with earthly qualities. 

Mortals identify with Sarah. We’ve all experienced our embarrassing moments and qualified as goof-ups at some time or other.  In spite of her insecurities, Sarah achieves her mission, and she learns a little along the way.  In each book, she grows. Hopefully, we humans do the same.

Comparable to Lucy Ricardo, Sarah finds herself in madcap situations—most of them of her own making. As with Lucy, we often find the little angel wearing some crazy disguise.  Remember the episode where Lucy set her fake nose on fire? Sarah hasn’t done that yet, but she achieved something far worse for an angel from the Heavenlies. In Sarah: Laney’s Angel, She masqueraded as a woman with the face and figure of a professional Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader. Nothing wrong with that, right?  Except Sarah can’t walk in heels and she fell into the lap of an unsuspecting male diner—a very non-angel thingy to do. In Sarah: A Mission of Love, she posed as a male biker wearing black leather and chains. People assumed she was with a gang of Hell’s Angels. Oops! The Superiors sent her to represent The Heavenlies, not to characterize the other side. Creature appearances constantly remain a challenge for her.

In I Dream of Jeanie, Barbara Eden makes the charming character of Jeanie appear and disappear. She can create something from nothing. Sarah is gifted with those powers.  Just wait till you read the chapter in Sarah: Laney’s Angel where she makes a SUV appear. With no idea how to drive the huge, scary thing, another disaster emerged in the making. As with Jeanie, how should one make these items vanish without an earthly person witnessing them?  Poor Dr. Bellows. In I Dream of Jeanie, he was always privy to one of Jeanie’s unexplained phenomenal creations. In Sarah: Laney’s Angel, a food server sees a lamb chop float in the air. Poor fellow, although cold sober at the time of sighting, he resolved to never take another drink of alcohol again for the rest of his life.

Touched by an Angel was a television series featuring angels who helped Earthlings. Each episode contained a message. At the end of the segment, Monica, the angel gifted with truth, revealed herself as an angel and then told the person that God loves them. Sarah doesn’t disclose her identity, but the same notion finds its way into each book. God loves us and uses us in spite of our goof-ups.

Sarah: Laney’s Angel encompasses romance and suspense along with fantasy. Tomas, the Warrior Angel is to protect Laney from a killer. Sarah’s mission is to link Laney with Cannon. Biblical truths are woven into the story. Humor is essential to me, and I’m fond of any and all uplifting literature, and that’s the way I write. We live in stress, and my goal is to help the reader escape it and leave them relaxed and inspired. I enjoyed creating this book. I hope you enjoy reading it.
