As I mentioned in a previous blog, The Color of Thunder is entirely different from any of my other novels.  It’s still fiction, it’s still set in North Central Texas, in a fictitious town, of course.  It has several twists and turns, but it isn’t a mystery.

It has lots of drama, a touch of racism, a reporter who has a chance to further his career by writing a scathing expose of a thriving church and the minister who is celebrating his 40th year as pastor of the church.

The pastor was born to Russian immigrants who had come to America to find the good life, but the timing was all wrong.  Senator McCarthy had just started his ‘witch hunt’ for  communists.  In their fear, they raised their son to be 100% American, cutting all ties to anything Russian.

I hope you enjoy reading this new book as much as I enjoyed writing it.  I even made myself cry a few times as the drama unfolded, especially there at the end when … Oops, I almost said too much.  Can’t give it away now.  Sorry.  You’ll have to read the book.  We’re shooting for a late spring or early summer release.

When Elsie decided to try her hand at writing a novel, Fire Light Fire Bright was born followed by Dreams Never Lie -which quickly became her publisher’s first Best-Selling Series. The Color of Thunder was published right between Dreams are Forever and Shattered Dreams. Elsie was born in Brooksville, Florida. Some of her fondest memories were swimming at Pine Island in the nearby Gulf of Mexico. Weeki Wachee Springs is where she learned to swim. In the early 1980’s, Elsie and her three children, Katie, Lisa G. and Jes moved to Texas. Shortly after moving to North Central Texas, Elsie met her husband Ronnie on a blind date and after a whirlwind courtship, they married in April 1987. After 34 years, they're still going strong.
