Looking Out The Window: Reader's Favorite Award Winner Regina Andrews Talks About Her New Book, Act of Faith

A Warm Welcome to Regina Andrews To read the first chapter of Act of Faith click on the First Chapter link below. Hi Regina, Tell us a little about Act of Faith. First of all, thank you so much for hosting me on your wonderful blog! I am delighted to be here! It is so exciting to share Act of Faith with you and your readers. It is available now in paperback and ebook form on Amazon.  Act of Faith is actually book two in my Dunbar Falls series. The first book, In Good Faith, was released and received outstanding reviews. But I have deliberately written the series so that each book stands by itself and you do not have to read them in order.  More good news! Right now I am working on book three in the series called Leap of Faith. I am planning to have that one ready to release in the spring.  That's great, and it's my pleasure to host you! Lots of writers were avid readers as children. How about you? If so, tell us what you liked to read. I used to love to read dot-dot-dot and

I grew up in the former British Colony of Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, in Central Africa. Following our British heritage, we always had people over for tea. Knock on the door any afternoon, and you’d be welcomed with, “Come in. So good to see you. I’ll put the kettle on.” Mom always had her three-tiered cake tin filled with goodies. Sometimes cake, but more often than not, biscuits (cookies), scones, savory cheese straws, and her shortbread. When I got married in Texas, my parents travelled from South Africa for the wedding.  Valerie's parents at her wedding. I’d asked Mom to brin

Some people have a bucket list that has daring things to do or something they longed to do for years. It is never too late and you are never too old to do something you have longed to do.  After raising six daughters and believing it is never too late to dream, I decided to go back to college. It was a scary thing to do and I don’t know why I was so worried. At the age of 50, I graduated from college with a Theatre and Arts Degree. After that, I performed for a concert series. It was unbelievably fun and enjoyable until I got reflux and lost my voice. Feeling discouraged, I didn’t know what to do with my life. But . . . when one door is closed, God opens ano
