Steve, Not at present. The best you can do is order them individually online at Amazon or other stores, and then match the covers, since there have been two printings with different covers. The good news? I'm in contact with a publisher who wants to reissue them with new covers, including a picture that spans the spines so that they look great on a bookshelf. The bad news? The way publishers work, the set probably won't be out until sometime next year. Thanks for asking!
Grateful Reader -- Bless your heart. You made my day. Thank you for the kind words and being such a faithful reader.
Lola, bless you and all the readers who catch my typos! I appreciate your comments. I hope you're enjoying the American Family Portrait. Please give the ladies of your church my best.

Award-winning Christian Historical Fiction This is a favorite, for me and for my readers. It follows the life and death adventures of a German pastor, his youth group, and the disabled children of the Third Reich who were marked for death in Hitler's experimental gas chambers. Their story spans the rise of Hitler, World War II, and Communist East Germany behind the Berlin Wall. An epic story of courage, heroism and faith. Continue reading

FINANCIAL BANKRUPTCY usually comes as no surprise. It’s not the result of a single misstep, but a series of small rationalizations over time, poor spending habits, and bad decisions that build like snowflakes on a mountainside, resulting in a sudden, cataclysmic avalanche. The same can be said for moral bankruptcy. Continue reading

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who take risks, and those who want the glory without the risk. Dream. Do. Don’t fantasize over spotlights you don’t deserve. Don’t be a dead lion kicker. Continue reading

Where Do Novel Ideas Come From? USUALLY, BY THE TIME A NOVEL IS RELEASED the author has journeyed so far down a story path he’s forgotten the fork in the road that led him there. Until someone asks him. Such was the case for me the other day when a friend inquired about the origins of my latest supernatural suspense novel, Behold. Continue reading

Lisa, I share your feeling about bound books. I'm old school in that way, but for me there's nothing like the feel of a hard-bound book, trade paper like mine are a close second. That said, I have both a Kindle and Nook and love what they both can do, but it's apples and oranges when compared to bound books. Guess I'm just old school. So glad you have enjoyed the two series. Thanks for the kind comment about my writing. You made my day. Blessings.
Deana, excellent comment! Tebow's courage to be who he is prompted my post. But I hadn't put that with the bad press so many of the NFL players are generating. You're right. Would the owners and fans rather Tebow be acting more like them, or them acting more like him? Thanks for commenting!
