Welcome Back and Tour for Extraordinary Writer & Teacher

Happy New Year, Pixels! Welcome back to Pix-N-Pens! We've got some great contests and wonderful guests already scheduled for the next few months, so bring all your friends and join us for a fun, challenging year filled with lots of surprises!

Our CFBA book was late shipping, and I just received my review copy in last night's mail, so I haven't yet read it. Susan May Warren is an EXTRAORDINARY writing teacher - any time I get a chance to listen to her teaching I take it (usually through conference CDs since I don't make it to many conferences) and her classes never disappoint. I always learn so much I return to her classes again and again. She's very gifted, and I highly recommend her teachings and her books to everyone.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Susan grew up in Wayzata, a suburb of Minneapolis, and became an avid camper from an early age. Her favorite fir-lined spot is the north shore of Minnesota is where she met her husband, honeymooned and dreamed of living.
The north woods easily became the foundation for her first series, The Deep Haven series, based on a little tourist town along the shores of Lake Superior. Her first full-length book, Happily Ever After, became a Christy Award Finalist published in 2004 with Tyndale/Heartquest.
As an award winning author, Susan returned home in 2004, to her native Minnesota after serving for eight years with her husband and four children as missionaries with SEND International in Far East Russia. She now writes full time from Minnesota's north woods and the beautiful town that she always dreamed of living in.
You can sample a chapter of each and every one of Susan's novels, on her website, HERE.



ABOUT THE BOOK:

Ellie Karlson is new to Deep Haven. As the town’s interim fire chief, she is determined to lead the local macho fire crew in spite of their misconceptions about her. But when someone begins setting deadly fires, Ellie faces the biggest challenge of her life. Especially when sparks fly with one of the volunteers on her crew: Pastor Dan Matthews. As Ellie battles to do her job and win the respect of her crew, she finds that there is one fire she can’t fight—the one Dan has set in her heart.

(This book is the repackaged edition published in 2004.)
