Book Trailer: The Living Miracle

  It took me all day -but my book trailer is finished.  There are some little twist I’d like to do but I am pleased.  If you watch this on a large screen some of it comes out a bit grainy and we are working on it. Thanks to my wonderful husband Bob -I couldn’t have done this without you.  Saranghaeyo

A Review of The Living Miracle

Today, I received a very important review of my work. This review was prepared by D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer,  Midwest Book Review These are a few quotes from her review: “The Living Miracle is like no other.” “…hard to put down.” “Both religious readers and secular followers will find The Living Miracle an intriguing and gripping story of an all-too-possible future altered by one miracle that stands alone as the flame to a bigger fire of hope.” This review will be posted in the April 2016 issue of The Midwest Book Review.  It will also appear on Kobo, Goodreads and Booklikes, plus more. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement.  Thank you to The Midwest Book Review and D. Donovan for giving my novel a blessed beginning.

Tribute for Choi Min Ho Birthday

I am feeling generous today, since it is Choi Min Ho’s Birthday.  I am going to release the romance novel that I wrote for him, until Sunday.  A Shinee Love Story   Chapter 1   “Umma.  Where are you U-mma?”  Ari sat on the leather recliner with a Kleenex box on her lap and tissues pressed against her nose.  As she gasped for breath, she continued to yell for her mother.  “Um-ma, come here.  He’s screaming at her to wait for him!”   Mrs. Kim came into the basement from upstairs.  “What’s wrong?” she asked.   “U-m-m-a, come watch this.  It’s so”, a coughing spasm interrupted her. “—sad!”  She continued only after grabbing a few more Kleenexes and blowing her nose.  “This girl is going back to America and he didn’t find out in time to say good-bye.”  Ari reached up to pull her mother down onto the armchair.  By taking her hands away from her face, she uncovered black streaks of mascara, swollen red eyes and a cherry red nose.  Ari’s shoulders jerked as …
