Growing up on an Indiana farm, Sheila Davis has one dream, to become a professional writer. But her farmer father sees no reason for his daughter's fanciful thoughts to pull her away from her duties at home. After winning a scholarship, Sheila convinces her dad to let her attend a summer writing course at a nearby school, where she flourishes, thanks in large part to the encouragement of her high school English teacher. It seems as though fate has smiled on her when a whirlwind romance with upperclassman Dan Gray turns into a proposal of marriage, with a promise to support her educational and professional dreams if she'll delay them and hold a job long enough for him to complete his degree. But Dan's personal agenda sentences Sheila to years of menial work as he climbs the ladder of academia, meanwhile secretly sabotaging her every attempt to become a published author. The longing never dies, however; and when Sheila gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a shot at getting published, she risks everything and dives in, only to encounter some stunning twists and turns she never anticipated, never prepared for, and never even imagined she'd have to confront.
Dennis E. Hensley, affectionately known as "Doc Hensley," has written more than 100 short stories for various publications. Under the pseudonym Leslie Holden, Hensley and coauthor Holly G. Miller (editor of the Saturday Evening Post) wrote a series of mystery-romance novels with Harvest House publishers. And under their real names, they published the novel The Gift with the same company. Hensley's latest book, Jesus in the 9 to 5 (AMG Publishers, 2013) is what Hensley calls a "fact-fella," in that it is a nonfiction book with a novella embedded within the text. The fictional aspects of the book earned it the designation of "Publisher's Choice" in the November 2013 issue of Christian Fiction Online Magazine. Dr. Hensley is chairman of the Department of Professional Writing at Taylor University and currently resides in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Diana Savage has written or contributed to eleven books, including two Chicken Soup for the Soul volumes, and has published hundreds of articles, devotions, blogs, and columns. She directs the annual Northwest Christian Writers Renewal conference near Seattle. As principal of Savage Creative Services, LLC, Diana provides professional writing, editing, and speaking services.
