For two years he’s been trying to infiltrate a highly organized group selling secret plans on the black market. He’s scheduled to connect with operatives at a wind farm in the middle of the desert where he’ll be taken by helicopter to meet with the leader. He arrives at the meeting place only to discover the men have kidnapped Drina and plan to kill her. Cal must make an instant choice, keep his cover and stop the organization or save Drina. Cal chooses Drina. They race across the Mojave Desert to escape the killers and Drina discovers that Cal is a man of action grounded in unbreakable faith. His personal walk gives Drina the confidence she needs to confront the guilt of her past. Can He possibly forgive her and allow her and Cal to escape their pursuers? Or will all her hopes and dreams die in the desert?
Tanya Stowe is an author of Christian Fiction with an unexpected edge. She fills her stories with the unusual…mysteries and exotic adventures, even a murder or two. No matter where Tanya takes you…on a trip to foreign lands or a suspenseful journey filled with danger…be prepared for the extraordinary.
1. What was the hardest character to write in Mojave Rescue?
Believe it or not the hero, Cal Norton was the hardest to write. I knew him very well and he spilled onto the page originally but even though I thought his motivation…stopping the bad guys…was good enough, my editor wanted more. I had to dig even deeper.
The easiest was Drina Gallagher. I think guilt is something we all carry at some time in our lives.
2. What inspired the idea for Mojave Rescue?
The rocket site where my husband worked twenty years ago. The platforms were set on a hill and designed to hold rocket engines for testing. At the time the platforms were abandoned and they were desolate and scary…the perfect setting for a mystery.
3. What do you want readers to take away from reading Mojave Rescue?
A sense of God’s grace. Even when we deny Him, He’s watching over us and He has a plan.
4. What is your current WIP?
My next project is tentatively called Fatal Memories. It’s set in the Sonoroan Desert of Southern Arizona. The heroine is a border patrol agent trying to stop drug traffic.
5. When you are not writing, what other “hats” do you wear?
Well, I’m a mom and grandma with 21 grandchildren so I stay very busy. I love to travel. I just returned from a trip to China. And I love to play pickleball!

“A Woman Overwhelmed” is a phrase with which many women can relate. But what would happen if we could see the insanity in our pace and embrace our overwhelming God?
There is a reason they say that a woman’s work is never done— because it isn’t! As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed . . . not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant—filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy.
In A Woman Overwhelmed, best-selling author Hayley DiMarco shares biblical insights and personal stories to offer a glimpse at the comedy of an overwhelmed life while encouraging us to discover the depths and heights of God’s love and power.
Be empowered to find freedom in becoming overwhelmed with who God is—by learning to focus on what we know about God so that we can hold onto faith even when it seems that all is lost. For it is when an overwhelmed woman gives up the mission of me and exchanges it for the mission of God that being overwhelmed becomes a good thing.
Choose to bask in the abundance of the Father instead of the abundance of life as his unfathomable depths can surely replace our fathomable messes.
Review: A Woman Overwhelmed by Hayley DiMarco
Overwhelmed is how I have felt on August 9th of this year. They day when my life seemed to go spinning out of control. The day that I would hear the words you have leukemia, you are being transferred to a bigger hospital that knows how to deal with it. This book came at just the right time in my life. I laughed and cried my way through this book. I felt as though I was living out parts of the book. I highly recommend this book. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 4.5 stars!
Ever since I saw Mercy Me in concert a few months ago I have been itching to get my hands on this book.

Book Blurb: Kayla Dienner has suffered her fair share of heartache, which is why she vows to protect her heart at all costs . . . until she meets Jamie Riehl.
Along with his volunteer work at the local fire department, running his Amish farm keeps Jamie Riehl busy. He barely has time to eat at the family table, never mind find someone to date. But when he meets Kayla Dienner, he is smitten.
Kayla tries hard to deny her attraction to Jamie. After all, she’s spent the last year discouraging her younger brother, Nathan, from becoming a firefighter. The death of their older brother in a fire a year ago is fresh in her mind—she can’t bear the idea of putting her heart on the line every time the sirens blare.
Then tragedy strikes, and Jamie wants to extinguish any flame between him and Kayla. Can Kayla set aside her own fears to save the love she was determined to deny?
The first book in the Amish Homestead series, A Place at Our Table invites us to a quiet community in Lancaster County where love burns brightly no matter the cost.
