She shares with us, "For those of you who do not believe in the power of God and to those who have ever questioned His grace, love, or existence, I hope my story, a 'God Story', will be an inspiration and blessing to you. It will show you just how REAL, good and merciful God is. I want you to ponder over these pages and envision them as your own story as well as looking deeply at your own life and believe, "Is there really anything at all too big for God"? Search your heart, reflect on your life, all of your fears, concerns, joys, frustrations, anxieties, doubts, worries, mistakes, decisions, family, friends, co-workers and even ministry. My desire is that as you see the wonders of God throughout these pages, you will consider Him in your life and know that you are truly loved by Him."

People have been asking me for audio versions of my books, but I don't have the resources necessary to produce them. Therefore, I will be reading my books aloud on half-hour segments for those who want or need an audio version. This is part one of Fallen Angels, my science fiction novel. It was inspired by my husband Philip K. Dick, who often discussed the problems with eugenics. My free account here at blogtalk allows me half an hour for each show, so I will read for half an hour today, then read for another half hour, and so forth, until I have read my entire novel. I hope thatyou enjoy this reading.
