Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at RAnn’s Place for Sunday Snippets where we share posts from the previous week and answer a weekly question.

Today’s question: Who is your favorite Catholic author? My favorite Catholic author is Dena Hunt, author of Treason and The Lion’s Heart. Her writing is exquisite, her stories are rich and compelling, and her characters are flesh and blood believable.

I’ve been busy with my Virtual Book Tour, answering interview questions about my new book and “visiting” other blogs. The blogs I visited this past week are listed in the 7QT post below.

I usually go to our parish priest.

Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at RAnn’s Place for Sunday Snippets where we share posts from the previous week and answer a question.

This week’s question: What is your favorite movie? That’s a toss up: Gone with the Wind and West Side Story are probably tied for my favorite movie.

This past week, I completed seven income tax returns (for family members). As well, I’m frantically trying to finish formatting and editing the print edition of my new book, A Subtle Grace. Today, I worked on formatting the Kindle edition, which should be live on March 22nd.

Here is my one and only post for this week:

7_quick_takes_sm1I’m connecting with other bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday. Come check out the other bloggers!

These will be super quick takes since I’m working on the print edition of A Subtle Grace as well as the Kindle edition and finishing three other deadlines.

1. Stealing Jenny 300th Review
My third novel, Stealing Jenny, just received its 300th Amazon review this past week (I believe it’s up to 307 reviews)! It was a bonus that the review was positive!Stealing Jenny

2. Spring Break Has Arrived
So where is spring? Up here in Ontario, this is the start of spring break, but we still have high piles of snow everywhere.

3. A Great Catholic Novel
Have you read “Treason” by Dena Hunt yet? It’s an outstanding read and may even strengthen your Catholic faith. I devoured this book in just under a day. For me, it was like literary candy.treason-catholic-novel-elizabethan-england-dena-hunt-paperback-cover-art

Sunday Snippets – March 1

Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at RAnn’s Place for Sunday Snippets where we share our posts from the previous week and answer a weekly question.

Question of the week: What are your plans for Lent? I’ve made it a tradition to de-clutter during Lent: drawers, storage area, closets. I’ve already started doing this, even though Lent hasn’t begun yet. I also give up the usual treats as well.

Here are my posts this weeks:

Practicing the Theology of the Body Through the Spiritual Works of Mercy
