off with her heartAmy Dale

Amy Dale is a wife and mother of four. She homeschools, plays and writes music, paints a bit, draws a bit, and writes as much as she can. She grew up in Oklahoma, but now makes her home in the mountains of Colorado.

In her debut novel, Off With Her Heart, Amy Dale dives into the background of the tyrant queen known as the Queen of Hearts.


Off With Her Heart – Before there was an Alice, there was a Queen of Hearts. And before there was a Queen of Hearts, there was a girl who lost all heart. This is her story. Katy has spent the first twelve years of her life wishing time away. Until she finds herself sucked in a world completely out of time, a literal wonderland bursting with wild magic, beauty and technicolor dreams come to life. But this land also surges with an undercurrent of poisonous spells, dark forests, and deep evil. A place one could quite literally lose her head. It’s a world at once familiar yet radically distinct. Wonderland before Alice first arrived. A place where the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter roam alongside creatures such as a snake named Waith and a stuttering lizard known as Lutwidge. Katy never asked to be there – or for the life-or-death adventure she finds herself in. Yet in a kingdom where almost anything can happen, Katy must somehow awaken the one thing that’s impossible for her to live with or without…her heart.

corrine taylor deliverance of evilCorrine Taylor

Corinne Taylor is the pen name for Lisa Corinne Taylor Keuhlen. Deliverance from Evil ​is her second historical novel. Raised in Maryland, her family’s roots in Washington D.C. go back 6 generations. She presently lives in Colorado with her husband of 33 years, 4 grown sons, 3 daughters-in-love, and 1 grandson. ​  Disclosure – Lisa also co-owners this website, Woodland Park Local.

Deliverance from Evil – Corinne Taylor tells the compelling, true story of Florence, a young debutante in the late-Victorian, high society of Washington D.C., who sidesteps a local array of appealing, eligible suitors and chooses Tom, a stranger to the city. ​
Despite her other unrelenting suitors, Tom proves himself to be her truelove and an ambitious young man of great promise. With his impressive academic credentials and glowing references, he attains the blessing of her father, and their future appears golden. ​
Vulnerabilities, romantic idealism, and unscrupulous behavior converge within the young couple’s seemingly idyllic relationship and, ultimately, lead to a perplexing tragedy.
What occurred in 1915 splashed blood-red headlines across the front pages of Washington’s newspapers. It plagued Florence’s family with fear and suspicion, and left a wake of unanswered questions. Meticulous research into archived information has put these questions to rest, and a mystery is revealed that has lain dormant for four generations.

then we ran book coverRob Jewell – Then We Ran

Then We Ran shows how lives can change when ordinary people commit themselves to exceed the expectations they have for themselves and that others have for them.

With one caring for a husband with early-onset Alzheimer’s and the other smarting from a failed marriage and mired in the complacency of retirement, they recapture the passion in their lives and discover the importance of love and friendship.
