The Angel and the Raven


It is with much humility and joy that I present to you my new book, The Angel and the Raven. I have been writing poems, journals, prayers, sermons, school essays, blogs, and stories for as long as I can remember. It is my way of talking with God about my fears, the big questions, my doubts, and especially my hopes. Every piece of my writing reveals an intimate part of who I am and where I am in my faith. We live in a world that can feel very dark and hopeless at times. In this story, I have tried to understand what it requires of us to be angels of hope in the world. But it is also a love story set in the City of Lights between a french baker and a chocolate maker! Who doesn’t LOVE a love story!

The Angel and the Raven

A world without angels, is a world without wonder, mystery, and hope. The Angel and the Raven beckons the imagination and speaks directly to the heart. Tucked like a secret jewel on the Île Saint-Louis in Paris is the famous Levain Boulangerie et Pâtisserie. Lines circle the block for their perfect buttery croissants, crusty baguettes as tall as soldiers, rich chocolate cakes, and exquisite macaroons. But the Levain Bakery is much more than a famous pastry shop—it is the earthly home of angels. Tied in the white-starched Levain apron is Gabrielle, aspiring baker and angel-in-training from the esteemed line of Gabriel. To fulfill her destiny on earth, she must discover her gifts of light, look the Raven in the eye, and deliver Gabriel’s message of hope, love and divine redemption.

I pray you will consider buying a book or two because this is my way of raising money for kids with cancer. All the proceeds from every book sold goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City in honor of my son Charlie. I promise this will be a gift of hope to you and to whomever you gift it to this Christmas! I am doing a friends and family book tour over the next six months and I sure would love to come visit you! Email me and I will show up with books and French Chocolates!

I will be reading and signing books in Nashville at Woodmont Christian Church on Sunday, December 15th and Parnassus Bookshop in Nashville on February, 15th for Valentine’s!

You can purchase books at and on! I would be happy to take orders via email. I will sign as many as you like, wrap them, and then either deliver them to your front door or mail them to you! They would make a special gift for teachers, sisters, moms, mother in laws, and friends! It would mean a lot to me and the folks at Sloan Kettering!!

Live in Hope,
