Welcome to the place where I shamelessly exploit family, friends, babies and small animals to sell sweet books! If you click on the delightfully fun carousel below, it will take you over to Amazon! How amazingly simple is that?
This just in!!!

"...Alex and Lisa have great chemistry, and the book is a stirring tribute to breast cancer survivors and the author's friend."
BOOK TRAILER FOR "The Lawman's Second Chance"... by Beth Jamison
Less than two years ago my friend Lisa was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer... Thirty-six years old, health conscious, in great shape, mother of four, and silly enough to hire me as their babysitter ten years before. Like 9/11 and the Challenger disaster, the day of Lisa's diagnosis was a day I'll never forget; it is etched in my brain with razor-cut precision.
First we cried. Then we fought. And in the crazy, prayerful, sorrowful days that followed, Lisa showed the world the grit I love in her... and the faith and humor that has carried her thus far. This book, "The Lawman's Second Chance" is dedicated to Lisa and Jeff and their four kids and to Beth Endlich, the beloved late mother of my editor, Melissa Endlich.
I asked permission before I wrote it... Not everyone is comfortable having their life splayed for tens of thousands to read... But for Jeff and Lisa, the thought that this sweet story might help someone else feel less scared and less alone, was enough. You will love this book, these fun, fictional (well, MOSTLY FICTIONAL) children, the beauty of Western New York's Southern Tier (the uppermost stretch of the Appalachian Mountains) and the grace of small town living. The adorable New York State Police Investigator is nothing to shake a stick at, either!
On shelves now and available at Amazon.com, Christian Books.com and Barnes&Noble.com, "The Lawman's Second Chance" bridges "The Men of Allegany County" series with the "Kirkwood Lake" series, set in the tri-county area of Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties of Western New York... It's a story of new beginnings and second chances...
I'm so glad "youse" stopped in today. That gift of time is never taken lightly around here. And I know I'm supposed to write this in third person as if someone else is writing about me, but hey... It's me, not some hired writer, and I like nothing more than meeting folks, chatting it up, having fun with them! Hangin' with people makes my day.
If you take a few minutes to play, you'll find pages about me, some great links to my fun Yankee-Belle Cafe Blog with Missy Tippens, Mindy Obenhaus, Virginia Carmichael and Jan Drexler and Julie Hilton Steele...yes, we all love to cook and have different takes on most everything because we're all from different regions of this great country.
Visit me and a crew of amazing Christian authors in Seekerville, check out what's going on at the homefront by stopping by my blog: Ruthy's Placeand The Men of Allegany County web page where I give folks the skinny of what's goin' on down in the Southern Tier of Western New York! Also you can be my friend on facebook... I love sharing pics of what we're doin' with the kids, chickens walking around the porch, an occasional possum stopping by for a nip of cat food.
I'm wretchedly normal, lots of fun, I love chocolate, babies, coffee, God and my sweet husband... and I pray daily for our country... our people... thanking God for the wonders bestowed on us. We are truly blessed.
Third, if you're missing any of the books, I've put in links to online booksellers. Click the link and off you go, but please come back often! Play. Have fun. E-mail me and tell me about your small town... or neighborhood... or city. I love to chat with readers.
