Dreamin' with Susan Page Davis - WIN 2 OF HER BOOKS!

A big welcome to today's guest blogger, Susan Page Davis!

When I was a child, I dreamed of having a pony. Pure black, with a western saddle and bridle. Now I have other dreams. Special times with my children and grandchildren. Finishing projects I’ve planned for a long time.

But sometimes dreams can take us in the wrong direction. As Claudia Gillette, the heroine of my new book, Inside Story, learns, her long-held dreams of success may be off kilter. She wants to shed her old ties and her background as a small-town girl. As an honored journalist whom others respect, she finds that what she once dreamed of is empty without a love and a family. She draws back toward her parents and sisters and finds that God’s family is even more supportive. Claudia goes from being willing to sacrifice anything to get what she perceives as the ultimate news story to giving up her tarnished dreams for love and peace.

In the meanwhile, she is dropped into the wildest adventure she could imagine, dodging bullets in the jungle and helping to rescue a family in dire need. I hope you’ll join Claudia as she learns to set her heart on things that really matter.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Susan Page Davis is a prolific writer. She’s the mother of six and grandmother of five. She and her husband Jim, a newspaper editor, live in rural Maine. To find out more about Susan and her books, visit www.susanpagedavis.com

ABOUT THE BOOK - Inside Story

Claudia Gillette is a prize-winning journalist at a high-profile magazine.

She prides herself in her cool independence—traveling the globe, beating the deadline. Landing the interview with Heidi Taber, the only female in an elite U.S. Navy special operations unit, is yet another rung on her ladder of career successes.

Lieutenant Bill White is not happy about the journalist standing in front of him in the midst of the Philippine jungle. He has no time for public relations campaigns—certainly not during a covert mission to rescue a well-known aerophysicist from terrorists.

As shells explode and tracer fire streaks the air, Claudia finds herself caught up in a danger she never expected…or wanted. With lives at stake, she fears her presence in the unit is their greatest detriment to survival. Will she find the strength to live through the nightmare…or has her ambition cost her her life?


WIN THE BOOKS

Susan has graciously offered to give away not one, but TWO books! If you’d like to be entered to win a copy of Inside Story and the first book in the American Hero series, Frasier Island, just leave a reply to this blog.
