I love chatting with readers. Recently, a reader invited me to speak to their local congregation in Utah. Because of Covid-I am doing the next best thing. I am reading Safe House and sharing what I’ve learned about supporting survivors after each chapter.

Do you know someone who has experienced intimate partner violence (domestic violence)? Are you a survivor and your connections don’t understand or support you? Have people given you unwelcome advice, like why don’t you just leave? Send me your questions and concerns. Let’s chat after each chapter.

Welcome to the free video reading of Safe House, published by Cedar Fort Publishers. I thought it would be fun to read my first book to you while sharing the beauty of the Pacific coast or the settings for Safe House, Finding Hope, and my upcoming novels. I also share what inspired the novel. I made this video two miles from my house on the Tillamook Head Trail my family hikes annually. It is six miles of Oregon Forest and ends in Ecola Park just outside Cannon Beach.

Today, I added a reading of chapters 3 & 4 of Safe House. I will add new chapters to to my Tuesday and Thursday newsletters.  I promise not to spam you!

After I read the chapters, I will tell you a little about what inspired them. Feel free to end the video before the chat. I know how busy life can be!

World Changer! Marie Woodward ~ #WaitByTheGate #ChooseLight

Goodbye Nauvoo FREE on Kindle December 12-15th!

I am so excited to share this book with you! Marie Woodward, author of Goodbye, Nauvoo, a historical fiction, has a beautiful family history around the very subject of her book! Join me to learn why she is committed to writing clean and inspiration books, and the fascinating history behind her novel, including some family history, and a cherished recipe.

Check out this fun fact Marie shared."The picture of the Nauvoo temple image on the cover of my book was taken by my mother-in-law, Cindy Woodward. She was there on vacation and didn't realize a tornado was brewing in the background at the time she took the picture."

Marie recently had a baby. Marie shared this photo of her little family on the day they blessed the new addition to their family and her inspiration for writing clean novels.I asked Marie about her commitment to only produce clean books and she said:

" As a mother, I want to be an example to my children in writing clean and inspirational books. I want to uplift others and write books that people can be inspired by."

Marie carefully researched her own family history and Nauvoo for her beautiful novel. If you are not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and you know nothing of the history of Nauvoo (spoiler alert), members of the church built the beautiful city in swamp land. They were later driven violently and forced to leave behind their homes and their beautiful temple. It is such an important piece of our culture and history, our Church has rebuilt the temple and returned some of the city to its former glory. You can ...

Finding Hope by Shannon Symonds – Now Available & The Playlist

She’s hiding in her present.
With nothing but her guitar and a few belongings, Hope Flanagan escapes the abuse and negligence from her mother’s boyfriend. Hope’s lucky enough to find a warm exhaust vent in an alley of her coastal town and blessed with help from a coffee-shop employee who sees her desperate situation. But Hope is determined to stay under the radar from social services and the other homeless kids, who seem to go missing once they fall under the notice of the local homeless tough girl.

She’s hiding from her past.
Grace James works with the police to help survivors of abuse while desperately fighting to keep her own family safe from her vindictive ex-husband. News of her husband’s release from prison pushes her to accept help from the handsome and secretive Officer Joe Hart. But then her mother brings home a stray from her coffee shop, and Grace finds herself catapulting through her fears to do for Hope what she just might not be able to do for herself—find out who she really is to save her before it’s too late.You can find "Finding Hope" on Amazon:Paperback, OR Kindle, Kindle Unlimited
