Thanks to the dreaded “RONA” the 2020 Olympic Games have been postponed for a year. My novella “No Second Place” is a quick read with great reviews. Shameless self-promotion: my sister, Jean Driscoll, was a Paralympic athlete at a couple Olympic Games and then attended a couple more as part of the President’s delegation, so the info in the book about the Olympics is straight from the horse’s mouth so to speak. I hope you enjoy Rita’s story. I have a lot of respect for all Paralympic athletes, and watching a wheelchair race is incredibly exciting. I especially enjoyed watching my sister play wheelchair basketball though I gasped in horror the first time I saw one of the players knocked from her chair. It didn’t faze her. She just flipped back into the chair and kept on playing. Part of the reason I’m so thrilled about this book is that the US Olympic Committee added “Paralympic” to their name this year. I think that’s great, and I hope Paralympic events will one day be incorporated into the games instead of following them! They’re every bit the elite athletes that able-bodied athletes are, and they deserve the same recognition in my book.

I am a mom, a teacher, a student and a lover of the written word, especially God's Word--which is why my first two books were devotionals. Wisdom is in short supply in so much of our world, so I go right to the top. If you like my posts, check out my books on Amazon.com (Fran Driscoll/Roberts). If there's such a thing as a clean murder mystery with a little romance, that's what you'll get. "A Place Called Grace" starts with an abused 4 year old escaping with her grandma to Mississippi. But "step-dad" Cullen Beal has been making money from Sheanna's innocent beauty, so he's on their trail. "A Place Without Mercy" ends Cullen's reign of terror, but at a terrible cost. The third, stand-alone book in the series is “A Broken Place,” which begins with a chance meeting in Puerto Rico and ends in a stand-off in New Orleans. Of course, I have a couple of new stories in the works, so there's more of Leah and Sheanna coming. If you see anything really unique that you think would make a great story, let me know. I love to collect stories as much as read and write them. View all posts by fdriscoll7
