Through the wonders of the Internet, I “know” lots of writers. I’ll be letting you know about them and their books as time permits. There’s so many good books out there. Today’s writer of the day is Elizabeth Maddrey.
Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of math and organization steered her into computer science for college and graduate school, she has always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity. You can find her online at http://www.ElizabethMaddrey.com or on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ElizabethMaddrey)
Her debut novel, WISDOM TO KNOW was released a few weeks ago. WAY TO GO, Elizabeth! The first one is always a thrill! Here’s the first page of WISDOM TO KNOW:
“You look like a prostitute.”
Lydia frowned at her best friend. “Brad likes my legs.”
Kevin admired the long, shapely legs in front of him from where he was sprawled on her living room couch. “Won’t you be cold if you show so much of them?”
“It’s September, not the middle of January. It’s still warm out.” Aggrieved she patted her hem. “Besides, the skirt reaches the end of my fingertips.”
“Your elbows are bent.”
“That rule shouldn’t apply to me, I have long fingers.”
Kevin cocked a brow. “You wouldn’t wear that to church.”
“We’re not going to church.” Lydia shot him an impish grin. “Besides, there are a couple of guys there who wouldn’t usually give me the time of day…maybe if I wore this, I’d get their attention.”
What do you think? I’m thinking Lydia is quite the woman!
Lydia Brown has taken just about every wrong turn she could find. When an abortion leaves her overwhelmed by guilt, she turns to drugs to escape her pain. After a single car accident lands her in the hospital facing DUI charges, Lydia is forced to reevaluate her choices.
Kevin McGregor has been biding his time since high school when he heard God tell him that Lydia Brown was the woman he would marry. In the aftermath of Lydia’s accident, Kevin must come to grips with the truth about her secret life.
While Kevin works to convince himself and God that loving Lydia is a mistake, Lydia struggles to accept the feelings she has for Kevin, though she fears her sin may be too much for anyone to forgive.
Thanks for being my guest, Elizabeth. May all your dreams come true as you continue on your writing adventure.
God Bless and Good Reading (and writing!)
