Meet the Author

I am an accountant and a husband and father of four boys.

I grew up in a small town in northern Canada where there were a large number of characters and a constantly changing population. Being able to observe and assess people was an essential skill for small town life.

My mother taught me to read when I was four so she could get the housework done. My father loved to tell stories and taught me how. My wife and sons have taught me the value of love.

While I grew up on a steady diet of science fiction and action adventure, it was my knowledge of small town characters and love of happy endings that steered me in the direction of writing romance.

My wife is still waiting for my first science fiction book and my teens are waiting for a sword and sorcery book. It may be a while.

Confronting many issues of the times with sensitivity and care makes this a thought-provoking and enjoyable reading experience.

Good story. Makes you think of what some people in our world have had to endure because they became Christian. Very good book.

This one wasnt my favorite. It kind of drug on and the majority of the storyline was kinda hurry up and wait even when you knew what the outcome would be. The interesting parts were only being retold instead of actually happening. It was neat though reading about life in that area of Canada

Not my usual type of story but it was good. It's kind of a sweet story. It did have a Christian point of view which I did appreciate. Thus the story was without foul language and overt sex. I generally prefer more of the action type stories.

I liked the story line of this book but it just didn'f feel true to life for me in many ways. It was like the author was reading a story to you and not really being involved.

I agree with march 23 review - Way too many trivial details, could have easily shaved a few hundred pages out by omitting those. Story line was good, also nice and clean, but the writers style bored me most of the time.

I read this book in two days. Overall, it was a nice, clean romance novel. If you're looking for heated passionate descriptions, you won't find them here. I enjoyed the story line and the characters. There is a thread of Christianity which didn't bother me at all. However, I did find the regular use of spoken endearments to be a little too "sugary" for lack of a better word. I just felt like the story overall could possibly happen in real life, but that people just don't typically use such old fashioned endearments in this modern time. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the story and will read more of Bill Sanderson's books.

I read 300 pages into this book and I had to force my way through it! I normally love nice religious based books, but this felt forced and fake. The plot was painfully slow and wasn't very creative.

This is a very well written story, aptly named!  A surprising mix of small town romance and Muslim retribution with a great surprise at the end!
