It's that time again. Round 7 in my Name This Author blog series.
This author is a native Californian. Today, she and her husband and their children live in a log house in the Golden State. She loves sipping Starbucks white mochas and reading the New Testament in Greek. She once helped to build a church out of baked mud bricks in a village in Madagascar, and her favorite thing to do as a kid was build forts in the woods.
The Rules: You must put your guess in a comment on the Write Thinking blog. Commenting on Facebook doesn't count. Participants must have a USA mailing address to be eligible to win a book. (Sorry. Cost of postage outside the US is too prohibilitive.) The first person to name the author correctly wins a Robin Lee Hatcher novel. If no one has guessed correctly by Friday morning, there will be no winner for this round. If there is a winner, he or she will be announced in an update at the bottom of this post. If the winner fails to contact me at my Write Thinking email address (see left sidebar) with his/her mailing address, no prize will be awarded to a runner-up. No one who has won a book within one month is eligible to win.
Be sure to check back to this post to see the answer and to see if you have won.
UPDATE: We have a winner! Diana Flowers came up with the right answer. Diana, please email me at the email address listed in the left sidebar with your mailing address so I can get a book out to you.
