Featured Author, Nora Ballew
Nora lives in Pennsylvania and is very happily married to her high school sweetheart, Brian. She is beaming proud of her three adult daughters who provide love and laughter to her in abundance. As Nora's nest has emptied of children (and filled up with fur-kids of the dog variety), she has once again found the creative voice first born in her as a child, and is nurturing that voice and giving it breath as an author. Her first book, Diving in Deep, is a foray into the middle-grade/young adult genre. Nora loves God, her family and her dogs.
Kendall’s world revolves around her family, the church youth band, and an endless stream of text messages with her friends… until a tragic accident claims her sister’s life and leaves Kendall carrying a painful secret. Her mother, her friends, even the police don’t know what really happened that fateful night on Crooked Hill Road.
Shattered by grief and tortured by her memories, Kendall knows if she tells the truth, she may never be forgiven. But if she doesn’t, someone else will face certain persecution. Will she ever find the courage to reveal how one choice, one word, changed everything?
