Mission Statement:

Life is a mysterious and terrible and wonderful journey…a trip that we are all on, like it or not. The best part about it are the people we meet along the way, our friends, our family, those we grow to love and who love us back.
Loss is part of everyone’s life, and no one gets off the planet alive. Join us as we talk about our shared journey and discover the soul of the everyman that binds us all together.

Writing Alchemy: Transmuting Pain Into Gold

Katy Huth Jones

Through a writing assignment she gave herself at the beginning of her Father's final battle with lung cancer in order to cope with the agony of watching her larger-than-life hero slowly disintegrate before her eyes, Katy Huth Jones' epic fantasy series finally came to life. The fifth and final book will be released later this year, each volume Providentially completed through a series of life upheavals, including the painful recurrence of her own cancer.

Mercy's Prince, Book One of the YA epic Christian Fantasy series He Who Finds Mercy, is a stand-alone. When his older brother is killed in battle, Prince Valerian must put aside his dreams of becoming a scholarly monk and be crown prince during a time of war. While a traitorous knight plots to kill him, Valerian meets Mercy, a pacifist Healer. Unexpectedly they can speak mind-to-mind, as only the great dragons can. Armed with Mercy's love and a pure heart, Valerian seeks out the dragons to ask for their help against a devastating swarm of monsters.

Only at Amazon & Audible narrated by Richard Vobes: myBook.to/Mercys_Prince

Bio: Katy Huth Jones grew up in a family where creative juices overflowed and made puddles to splash in. She's been a published author since 1992 with magazine credits from Highlights for Children to Texas Highways and everything in between, numerous short stories in fantasy anthologies, two children's books, one YA nonfiction, one YA historical fiction, two MG fantasies, and Lord willing, by the end of summer, five YA fantasies. A hybrid author, she stumbled into self-publishing quite by accident. She lives in Fort Worth with her tall handsome Texan/British husband Keith. After homeschooling their two sons, she now loves being a fun Grandma.

Overcoming Adversity

Mr. Keith Guernsey

Mr. Keith D. Guernsey is retired after a forty year career in sales and sales management with several fortune 500 companies. He currently lives on Lake Lanier with his wife Susan and four-footed son Harley.  Mr Guernsey spent a good portion of his youth playing sports, active in both football and hockey. In 1995 Keith was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor (called an Acoustic Neuroma) and he underwent a ten hour operation at the world-renowned Brigham and Women's hospital where it was successfully removed.  While recovering, he met and married Susan. Together they faced his next challenge. In 1997 his neuroma returned. He was to undergo yet another, more complex, operation which resulted in a complete cure, however side effects of this second more invasive procedure caused prolonged inactivity and led to severe weight gain of over 100 lbs.  Today Mr. Guernsey is very proud of the fact that he has been able to overcome his physical challenges, losing over one hundred and thirty five pounds, and has found the time to write two successful books (“Confessions of a Beantown Sports Junkie and “Fathers and Sons-Sports and Life”). He now enjoys a more active and rewarding lifestyle at age sixty five than at he did at twenty five!  His current interests include senior softball, he has recently been elected to the Board of Directors of ITN Lanier, he volunteers as a delivery driver for Meals-On-Wheels and works as a counselor for veterans who are looking to re-enter the work force.
