Speaking of reading (weren’t we?), if you have read A Lady in Defiance–or any of my books for that matter– your review would be very much appreciated! Authors on Amazon live and die by those things! Here is a quick link:  A Lady in Defiance (Romance in the Rockies): Romance in the Rockies Book 1

But more importantly, there is a crucial message in this book. Please share it, and His love, whenever you can.



  1. Loved the blog that you shared today. I heard about your book through a cousin and really want to read it. I am just having trouble finding it in a book format. Does it only come in kindle style?

    • Alissa, I so very much appreciate your interest in my book and my blog! Currently, A Lady in Defiance is only available in digital format. Sorry. But I would like to make a suggestion. The “Kindle for PC” is a FREE download from Amazon that allows you to read books on your laptop or pc. It is awesome b/c you can download books in SECONDS, and then if you do ever get a Kindle, it will sync your books automatically. If I do decide to make Defiance available in book format, I will let you know. Also, if you decide to download the Kindle PC program, let me know and I will GIFT you my book. I just really appreciate you and your cousin reading/wanting to read it! Have a blessed day!

    Just finished reading Romance in the Rockies Series. Both A Lady in Defiance and Hears in Defiance were excellent reads. The second book seem to leave off rather suddenly and I was wondering if there was possible a 3rd book in the series on its way. I hope so. You are a gifted writer.

    • Deborah, what an honor! Such kind words. Thank you so very much and I am tickled you liked visiting Defiance. I do have a third book on the way. A Promise in Defiance will be out Winter 2016. You can follow me on Amazon if you’d like to be notified of new my new releases. You are also welcome to come join me on facebook. We’re one big, happy family over there! Thank you again for reading!

  5. Hi, Just read Love,Lies and Typewriters. Thoroughly enjoyed it and wanted to congratulate you on a great story.

  6. I just finishes the first book in “Romance in the Rockies,” and loved it. What an amazing description of the darkness of evil in Rose. We do fight that evil of darkness. I live about 50 miles south of Silverton, so the area in the book really hit home with me.

  7. Oh Heather, I loved the story of your sister. Beautiful. My oldest son and his wife were in that situation, and he told me how much he loved her. They got married (she was six months pregnant,) and now have been married 32 years! She is still in love with him, and he loves her so much still. Amazing what God can bring us through.
    And you are an amazing woman too! I passed your books around to my sisters..all five of them! They loved them as much as I did.
    And, I was sort of like you…in a family of all boys! (Three) I raised them mostly by myself…on minimum wage! I stayed close to the Lord every minute and every step of the way!
    Thank you,
    Dorothy Sexton

    • Aw, Dorothy, I don’t know where to begin. Thank you so much for your amazing support. You are just precious to me. And thank you for sharing that story of your son. There are no unwanted babies. ❤

    Re: “Betsy Ross — I Bet You Didn’t Know This About Her,” posted by Frey Blanton, March 5 (2019?), fifth paragraph

    Dear Ms. Blanton:

    Firstly, scholars no longer accept the claim that Betsy Ross had anything to do with the Stars and Stripes’ creation. The Ross story is based on uncorroborated and faulty Ross family lore that did not go public until the 1870s — a century after the Revolutionary War. For example, the two U.S. congressional committee members who allegedly accompanied General Washington to Mrs. Ross’ house — Robert Morris and George Ross — were actually members of the Pennsylvania Committee of Safety. This committee oversaw Pennsylvania’s navy. During the Revolution, Mrs. Ross actually made “ship’s colours” for Pennsylvania’s navy, to wit: blue ensigns (naval flags) and narrow red ship’s pennants. After the War, she and her family business made U.S. flags for 50 years. It is true that she cut five-pointed stars with one snip of the scissors. For more details, see the Wikipedia article on Betsy Ross. Secondly, General Washington had nothing to do with the Flag’s creation because it was created under the auspices of the Continental Marine (maritime) Committee and the U.S. Navy. Continental Congressman Francis Hopkinson of New Jersey designed two Stars and Stripes flags: (1) one for the United States with 7 white stripes and 6 red stripes and (2) one for the U.S. Navy with the reverse — 7 red stripes and 6 white stripes for better visibility at sea. Ironically, Hopkinson’s naval flag became the preferred National flag. For more details, see the Wikipedia article on Francis Hopkinson. Earl P. Williams, Jr., U.S. flag historian (paleovexillologist)

    • Mr. Williams, thank you so much for your comments. The long and the short of it is, though, Betsy’s alleged involvement with the flag can’t be DISPROVED either. Just because a thing isn’t documented doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. American colonists were looking for allies amongst their neighbors and considering only about 20% of the population participated in the war (supporting one side or the other), the circle that would have brought people to her door would have been a small one. Therefore, her involvement is entirely conceivable. Just not documented. To quote Fox Mulder, “I want to believe.”

  9. Earl P. Williams, Jr.

    Dear Mrs. Blanton:

    Thank you for your reply to my earlier comment about the Betsy Ross narrative. Scholars’ view of the Betsy Ross narrative is not a matter of proving or disproving the story. It is about the nature of the story’s evidence. History and forensics are based on evidence and the credibility of it. Credible oral history can fill in details not covered in recorded history, but in and of itself, uncorroborated oral history and testimony — especially after the passage of time — are the weakest forms of evidence. For example, statutes of limitation exist because, with the passage of time, memory fades. Ninety-four years had passed (from 1776 to 1870) before the Ross oral history was promulgated. Frankly, the Ross evidence does not jibe with the written record in multiple, material ways. William Canby, Mrs. Ross’ grandson, admitted that he had no evidence to back up his claim when he delivered his paper on her before the Pennsylvania Historical Society in 1870. Lastly, Mrs. Ross was no less of a patriot for making flags for Pennsylvania’s navy during the Revolutionary War, and for making flags for the United States for 50 years. Her lasting legacy is the U.S. flag’s five-pointed star.

    Yours sincerely,

    Earl P. Williams, Jr.
    U.S. flag historian
