|RATTLESNAKE by C. Lee McKenzie|
Western YA Novel
The desert town of Rattlesnake isn’t a destination. It’s a last resort.
Rattlesnake wasn’t my first title. I think I had three others before I settled on that venomous-sounding one. Each previous title had ghosts included—No Such Thing As Ghosts, Ghost Dreams, and one other that must have been so bad I can’t remember it. I think the word, Gulch, was involved. Fortunately, I dispatched all of these, and once I settled on Rattlesnake, I was happy. It had the flavor of the desert, a hint of the Old West, and it was also ominous.
RATTLESNAKE by C. Lee McKenzie
BACK OF THE BOOK: The desert town of Rattlesnake isn’t a destination. It’s a last resort. Seventeen-year-old Jonah Guthrie’s aunt sold their home in New England and fled to this place to escape the humiliation of his dad’s indictment for embezzlement and subsequent disappearance.
While their late uncle left them a house and a silver mine, the house is a shambles and the mine is defunct. They’re almost out of money, so they have no choice but to stay in Rattlesnake. And then Jonah discovers they’ve inherited something else. Her name is Catherine, and she’s been dead for over a hundred years. Now, she needs his help.

|Your Life with Jesus: How to Spark Memories |
and Write Your Spiritual Memoir by J.Q.Rose
The pages within Your Life with Jesus guide you in penning your sacred story and invite you to journey into a deeper faith experience.
I am ecstatic to announce--
My book, Your Life with Jesus: How to Spark Memories and Write Your Spiritual Memoir, is now available in eBook and paperback!
Thank you to this grand group of bloggers for the support you have given me during the last couple of years, helping me with the insecurities of writing a book, choosing a title, trying out a book cover, etc. Hugs to all!
I am a life storytelling advocate, so I encourage everyone to write their life stories. After I finished my first book on how to write your life story, Your Words, Your Life Story, I felt God nudging me to create a book to help followers of Jesus to write about their faith walk with him. When the nudge turned into an elbow in the ribs, I finally took action. I looked forward to helping folks put pen to paper or fingers on the keyboard to let go of the story that's been inside their heart for years. During the writing experience, the writer will discover revelations about her life, as well as create a treasured gift for their family and friends.
I have presented workshops to groups, but I can only reach so many. I hope the books will reach more people and inspire them to take time to sit down and write or video those precious life experiences, as well as explain how they overcame the obstacles in their lives.
