Grace in Deep Waters – Back cover blurb
William Macdonald is at the pinnacle of his career. Pastor of a growing megachurch and host of a successful national radio programme. Clever and respected, he’s a man with everything, including a secret. His wife has left him and he can’t risk anyone finding out.
Blanche Macdonald is struggling. Her once rock-solid marriage is showing cracks. She promised to love her husband for better or for worse, but does loving always mean staying? Blanche desires to put God first. Not William. Not her daughter. Not herself.
When is a marriage over? When do you stand and fight?

Grace in Deep Waters – The Journey
I started writing fiction in 2013. You can read the fuller story to the publication of Grace in Strange Disguise (Book 1) here.
I originally intended the first novel to be a stand alone novel but towards the end of the editing process I began to have ideas for a sequel. Then the second editor shocked me by saying, “This first book in one and a half book.” It was hard to chop off the final third of the book but looking back, I’m glad I did. Much of that material is now part of book 2 and three chapters made it into book 3!
Many people commented, “I enjoyed Esther’s story very much but her father was terrible.” I wanted to write a follow-up story for William and Blanche. Thus, book 3 was born. At the moment I have three more stories in this series. I am still unsure which of the next two to write first.
Having written two novels, I’m getting better at planning and I set aside time to write on Saturdays (since writing is not my main occupation). Like I did in book 2, I kept track of the two main characters by using two different coloured cards on a bulletin board. I seem to have settled into a pattern where I plan in August/September and then write the first draft aiming to finish by the end of December. Then I let the book ‘rest’ before doing six months of edits including with beta readers (volunteers who read and give me feedback) and two professional editors I’d used on the previous books.
