About the Author
How did Skylar get here? Writing stories about angels? It all must have started when her mother wall papered her bedroom in a Louisa May Alcott Little Women’s motif.

Her eye popped open in the dark. Tingles spread out from her spine. Her heart didn’t quicken in fear because she sensed a warm familiar love in the tone of the voice. Turning toward it, she saw the form of a man, shining with a silver shimmer in the dark. “Holy Spirit? Lord?”
