It is Best Fiction with this exception
Finding the Narrow Path was not a book I planned to write: Ever. Until I made a promise to a friend.
With this caveat, the book recently got a five star review:
* Warning – Due to the author’s intense personal experiences, if a reader has a trigger that stems from abortion or the open, frank discussion of the topic from both the pro choice and pro life side then they must be very careful reading this book. *
If you are one who had a faith-based life and walked (or ran) away from it, this book could be a possible path back to faith. Where this author found a home in Catholicism, the genus of this story is that just because you once had faith and lost it doesn’t mean it is gone forever.
Intensely personal, gripping and well written.
Good Fiction Reviews
like the one from Midwest Book Review make the work of writing fiction worth all of the time, effort and energy.
The Fragrance Shed By A Violet: Murder in the Medical Center: “A fine balance between suspense and emotional character development, The Fragrance Shed by a Violet is a murder mystery that reaches deep into a primal fear..”

One of the questions I am frequently asked is whether I started out to write a medical mystery series.
The short answer is no.
However, writing is something I have done my entire life. But always as an aside, in my spare time. Until 2007, it was non fiction.
And then Lindsey McCall showed up.
Since then, four novels in the series have been published. The 4th, Malthus Revisited ended up as the biggest award winner of the entire Lindsey McCall medical mystery series. To date, Malthus has won six awards. Among them was Feathered Quill’s best in women’s fiction for 2018.
WilderBooks Fiction keeps changing.
Just as I planned to begin the fifth in the Lindsey McCall medical mystery series, I, Claudia, showed up. The change from in genres is admittedly peculiar, so much so that I did an author interview to explain:
If you were to change your genre, which one would you choose?
A most fitting question since my genre is/was medical mystery suspense thrillers. A most comfortable fit with my background in academic medicine and cardiovascular physiology. My next book would be the 5th in the Lindsey McCall mystery series. I was looking forward to it because I planned to bring back several characters I had loved in the 2nd book, Do You Solemnly Swear? That is until the title, I, Claudia as in the wife of Pontius Pilate showed up while I was on a March hike with my dogs. This switch to historical fiction was wholly unplanned, so challenging as to be terrifying. Just the proper ingredients for a risk worth taking.

For the time being, I remain in novels of the ancient world. The next book is My Name is Saul.
Saul as in the Jew who became St. Paul. Here’s the cover for this latest novel that I hope to release by the end of the year.
