Summary: This is the type of book that you will want to share with your loved ones. It will appeal to an audience of both nature enthusiasts and also anyone looking for a Christian devotional. The beauty of the pictures and the heartfelt devotions will inspire you to search your heart for a Love that will shine like the Risen Light.
Donna has written about how God has always been faithful to give her direction and comfort through the many trials of her life. As you read her heartfelt devotions, her thoughts will help you to reflect on your own relationship with God. In person she presents a very shy and kind disposition. Her close relationship with God allows her writing to come out in a bold, honest, and considerately loving manner. Through the trials, she has turned to God to find the grace, peace, comfort, and direction that He promises to all who seek Him. Though extremely painful, each situation has brought her even closer to Him and left her with a joy and peace that passes normal understanding. Donna realizes that He will do the same for all who turn to Him, and she shares that message through her devotions. Let the Peace that she has found speak to you through the devotions that she has written.
Over the years I have held a certain vision for the look and feel of my photography. I want it to have a soft warm look, balanced with a contrast of highlights and shadows. The soft warm light I am looking for can be seen very early in the morning as the sun is just beginning to rise. To accomplish this, I stay away from artificial flash and use natural light. Many of my pictures are not what you would see in nature and wildlife magazines. This is because they are just a little on the artistic side and slightly away from the technical, brightly lit photography that you see in some magazines and reference books. The best way to accomplish this warm look is to shoot just as the morning sun is breaking over the horizon. There is a very small window of morning light that gives everything that soft warm look and feel. This can make it very difficult to photograph wildlife. It took me several months to get pictures of wood ducks because they kept arriving to the pond after that small window of time. But eventually my patience paid off and I got the shot. That is one of the reasons our books are titled “Risen Light.” The other reason for the title is that through my photography, Donna’s writing, and our lives, we give honor, praise, and glory to Jesus, the true Risen Light.
The photographs and devotions are accompanied by scripture from the Bible. We did this because the Bible contains the very words of life, and that alone is more important than anything in this world. If the scripture and devotions can help you to understand, just a little bit, who God is and the love that he has for us, then we have accomplished our purpose.
These books are one of the ways we share the word of God with those who are looking. As you turn each page and view the pictures and read the words, I hope that you will get a glimpse of the natural beauty of creation that has captivated us. God has put everything together in just such a way that when we see nature, we just know there is a creator. If you see a portion of a buried treasure protruding from the ground, the small part you can see will let you know that there is a real treasure hidden beneath, that you can’t see. If you see it and just believe there is a treasure, but never seek, you will never have that treasure.
Summary: She was his savior
Banished from London for her reckless behavior, Lady Miranda Sinclair is robbed by a dashing highwayman en route to the country. By offering him a kiss in lieu of the jewels she had to leave behind, she commits the very type of act that caused her exile. When her dour guardians extend her punishment to performing charitable work at the local orphanage, she’s further tempted by the home’s owner, a provincial gentleman who stirs her passion in a most wicked way.
He was her downfall
Desperate to save his orphanage from financial catastrophe, Montgomery “Fox” Foxcroft leads a double life as a highwayman. The arrival of wealthy, well-connected Miranda, whose kiss he can’t forget, presents a lawful opportunity to increase his coffers. His problems seem solved–until she rejects his suit. Out of options and falling for the heiress, Fox must risk what principles he has left and take advantage of her wicked ways–even if it ruins them both.
Summary: It is the autumn of 1938 when Julia Kaufmann meets Erich Schmidt while studying medicine at the German University in Prague. With Hitler’s army soon to invade the city and the terror of World War II looming, it is the worst of times for a Jew and a German to fall in love. As the excitement of the eugenics movement gives way to outright genocide, and the fear sweeping across Europe grows into madness, Julia and Erich find themselves forced to travel two very different paths—ones which will determine the fate of their love and, ultimately, the fate of their souls.
A Perfect Madness takes us on a journey back to a dark time when the fight for survival often eclipsed the fight for the truth. Beautifully and provocatively written, it examines the crippling effects of fear on the human mind, asking painful questions of moral choice we cannot afford to leave unanswered.

He has published six books on bioethics, numerous articles, and scripted documentaries dealing with medicine, genetics, and law. He also is the author of the novel Rebekka’s Children.
Summary: Professor Simon Cross has spent his life searching for evidence of vampires and avoiding emotional entanglements.

Simon and Elizabeth’s developing relationship is tested by demons real and imagined. In 1920s Manhattan, there are more than mobsters vying for power in the city’s speakeasies. When the local kingpin with a dark secret sets his sights on Elizabeth, day to day struggles become a fight for their very lives.
Summary: Before Riley Blackthorne can take on Grade Five demons, she has to trap her very first. Her debut solo trapping experience should be a breeze, just a harmless Grade One after all. But throw in some dippy hippies (whose peace signs and Patchouli really aren’t driving any demons away), one mischievous demon, and a run-in with the police, and Riley might not be able to pull it off…
Summary: “The boy was named Pence because he was made from a potato grown close to the fence, or so he gathered.” With all the wrong proportions of courage and common sense, a head that is a mite on the fat side and a mouth too big for any respectable vegetable, Pence will have you laughing out loud to the bitter end.
This is a dark story. A lot of people get their hands cut off. There are deadly curses, kidnapping, decapitation, and a pair of lovers’ lifelong dreams dashed to pieces. Most of that goes right over Pence’s head.
He has bigger things to worry about.
