Dear friends, I'm delighted to have Jordyn Redwood as a guest on the blog today! Her bio is at the end of this piece, but I want you to know right away that Jordyn has been my medical consultant for every single piece of fiction I've ever written. If you're a writer, do yourself a favor and visit her Web site, where she corrects medical myths and answers questions sent in by authors like me, who want to make sure we get the facts straight regarding injuries, recovery, etc. You can search the blog for the issue of your...

New Novella Collection Contracted!

Posted by Jocelyn Green on May 14, 2016 in Books, News | 6 Comments

Drumroll please!

I am so delighted to announce that I've signed a contract with Barbour Publishing, along with four other talented authors, for The Message in a Bottle Romance Collection! The five of us are currently hard at work writing our novellas, each from a different era and location, tied together with a single bottle that finds its way across the world and through generations to bring hope. My particular novella is set in one of my favorite periods: you guessed it, the Civil War. 

We've been sitting on this news for sooo long! Look, I'm wearing a turtleneck...

When Disease Takes Your Children

Posted by Jocelyn Green on May 10, 2016 in Special Needs | 0 Comments

In honor of MPS Awareness Day (May 15), I'm handing the blog over today to Shannon McNeil, a mother of two children diagnosed with MPS III, or San Filippo Syndrome--one in heaven now, and one still gracing this earth. Some of the McNeil family's story is included in my upcoming release, Refresh: Spiritual Nourishment for Parents of Children with Special Needs. But today, she's going to give us a more complete picture by sharing with us the talk she recently gave to a group of women at her church. I hope you'll take a few moments to hear her heart, below. (Don't miss the video at...

NEW: Christian Historical Fiction Travel Guide

Posted by Jocelyn Green on May 07, 2016 in News | 5 Comments

I love immersing myself in a great book, and then visiting the book's setting. And clearly, many of you love doing this too! These three photos were sent to me by three different readers who took Widow of Gettysburg on tour in Gettysburg. (Thanks Christin Faber, Meghan Gorecki, and Rebecca Halton!) 

Reading about a certain time period and setting before visiting makes the location really come to life--and the history, as well. With that as my inspiration, I've just compiled the Christian Historical Fiction Travel Guide, a seven-page document full of my favorite books and...

Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day! As a former military wife myself, I'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each of you who is married to someone who is active duty, National Guard, Reserves, or even retired from any branch of service. I definitely appreciate the servicemembers themselves, but today is about you, the spouse! Your sacrifices and dedication are rarely in the spotlight, but you are the backbone of your family! I'm praying special blessings over each one of you today.

In honor of your service, I'm giving away THREE copies of the book,...

Character Inspirations for The Mark of the King

Posted by Jocelyn Green on May 03, 2016 in Behind the Books | 4 Comments

I spent last Friday at Bethany House Publishers' offices in Minneapolis, and I'm getting so excited to see what they come up with for The Mark of the King's book cover! I will likely do the cover reveal through my newsletter (see sign up in the footer of this page) two weeks before it appears on all the retail sites. The book releases in January, but the cover will be finalized this summer. Yippee! 

Now, since I don't have the cover quite yet, I thought I would at least show you some images that I've been using as inspiration for some of my main characters. Julianne is our...
