“I was bitten by the writing bug at age seven when I began writing Bible stories in my own words. In fourth grade, I started to write fictional stories and “publish” them in homemade wallpaper-covered cardboard books.I also write a blog “A Day in the Life of a Wife, Mom, and Author” where I serve up a dose of humor relating to family and writing life, write movie reviews from a Christian perspective, and introduce you to some of my favorite author friends through author interviews and giveaways. I am an active volunteer in my community. I serve as a Bible study leader, co-leader of a women’s prayer group, and founder of The Sisters in Christ Community Girls Night Out.My passion is to use the gift of the written word to glorify God and to benefit His Kingdom. I devote my time to assisting, encouraging, and nurturing women and children into a closer relationship with Christ. When I’m not dreaming up new characters for books, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and camping, hiking, canoeing, gardening, and playing volleyball.” (

My Thoughts:

As a mom it is hard for me to read. What I mean is the constant distraction. I can’t keep me head on concentration on the book. I end up reading the sentence 10 times before I move on. Does that sound familiar? Not with this book. Penny keeps your attention by offering up so many twist and turns in the plot. You never know what is going to happen next. I think a book that can keep a person attention is a great book! I have to admit too that I am big on romance plots as well. McKenzie had enough romance and mystery plot that it was perfect! The main characters are McKenzie, Zach, Davey, Rosemary, Asa, Kaydie, and Jonah. My favorite character is Rosemary. Because she is patient and kind, willing to help others. I felt like she was someone I could relate too. I love how in the end McKenzie learns a important life lesson; that money can’t buy everything in life. Isn’t that the truth! In the end what is important is the family and friends that we have around us!
