Faith-Filled Fiction at Its Best!
Wild Heart on the Prairie is the gripping prequel and companion to the breakthrough historical novel, A Rose Blooms Twice and is the foundation of the acclaimed series, A Prairie Heritage!

The Thoresen brothers, Jan (Yahn) and Karl, have left their native land of Norway and braved many perils and hardships to bring their families to America--the land of freedom and hope. Like thousands of others, Jan and his wife Elli long for the opportunity of a better life and a future for their children.

After enduring an ocean crossing and the arduous journey west, they encounter a land so vast and wide that it defies mastery. Jan finds that his struggles are not only with the land, but with a restless and unmanageable heart. Will Jan find a way to overcome this wild land or will the prairie master him?

Author's Note:Wild Heart on the Prairie is told in two parts. Part 1 of Wild Heart on the Prairie takes place prior to A Rose Blooms Twice. Part 2 of Wild Heart on the Prairie is the companion to A Rose Blooms Twice and recounts some of the same events of A Rose Blooms Twice, but from Jan's perspective.

Together these two books, A Rose Blooms Twice and Wild Heart on the Prairie, form the foundation of the series, A Prairie Heritage. I hope you enjoy the stories of these unique and instrumental individuals, Jan and Rose.

James couldn’t help but feel sorry for them. They didn’t know what was going on, that Earth was going to be invaded by the Nequitians, using his brother’s DNA. He had to escape.

Gemma Keyes is an ordinary, unexceptional young woman with a lackluster life until an overheard conversation ends her budding career—and her loyalty to an old friend puts her very existence in jeopardy. As the truth emerges, Gemma discovers—the hard way—that invisibility comes with its own set of problems.

My name is Gemma Keyes. Other than my name, I am utterly forgettable—so those who never paid much attention to me in the first place haven’t exactly noticed that I’ve disappeared. Vanished. Oh, it’s much more complicated than it sounds. And let me tell you, the adjustment is difficult.

I should tell you about Dr. Daniel Bickel, world-renowned nanophysicist. We used to work together, but I’ll be candid with you: He’s supposed to be dead. Well, he’s not. (Imagine my surprise.) Instead of the proverbial “six feet under,” he’s subsisting in an abandoned devolution cavern beneath the old Manzano Weapons Storage Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque.

“I need to show you what I’m protecting here, Gemma,” he insisted.

I stared into the clear glass case. I could hear . . . humming, clicking, buzzing. A faint haze inside the box shifted. Dissolved. Came back together. Reminded me of how mercury, when released on a plate, will flow and form new shapes. Only this, this thing was “flowing and forming” in midair.

“Do you see them?” Dr. Bickel asked.

“Them?” I was confused. My mouth opened to a stunned “o” as the silver haze resolved into blue letters.

H E L L O

Dr. Bickel hadn’t pressed any buttons. Hadn’t said anything to them. Hadn’t gestured.

He grinned. “Ah. They’ve noticed you. They know they haven’t seen you before.”

“Well, I wish they wouldn’t notice me!” I choked on the words, my eyes fixed on the glass case.

And I need to warn you about General Cushing. The rank and name likely conjure images of a lean but muscled old soldier, posture rigid, face cemented in unyielding lines, iron-gray hair cut high and tight.

Let me disabuse you of that impression.

General Imogene Cushing is short and a tiny bit plump. She wears her silvered hair in an elegant braid knotted at the nape of her neck, and she knows how to smile sweetly. With the deadliest of sharks..

You wouldn’t suspect a two-star general, an Air Force O-8, of being a traitor, would you?

Editorial Review


"The author impressed me by backing up the tale with some real science and actual locations. Gemma is one of the most well-developed characters I've seen, certainly not one of those comic-book caricatures that are so common now. She has a real personal history and real flaws that blend in well with the storyline."

"The Complete Adventures of SHELBY F. SQUIRREL and Friends"
Ages 3 - 11

Shelby is a young flying squirrel, who lives with his mother and twin sister, Darby.

This delightful series of 24 stories takes us through two years. The adventures include necessary lessons for skills the young ones will need as adults, and endless fun and excitement as Shelby explores the world around him.

Shelby hiccups and stutters when he is upset or excited, trouble finds him much too easily, and growing up is not what he wants to do.

The forest provides him with many good friends. They all decide to move to another forest when a possible disaster threatens their favourite meadow.

In Part Two, "SHELBY ON THE FARM", he meets and learns about farm animals.

The stories relate loosely to the realities of wild flying squirrels, but liberal poetic licence allows much more to happen.

Shelby F. Squirrel is the perfect introduction to learning more about real flying squirrels, one of nature's very little-known and most amazing creatures.

ELEANOR LAWRIE is a retired musician who loves to write. Shelby was 'born' when one day a door at the condo building where she lives was left open for just a little too long.........
