Introducing featured indie author Kim Stokely

This month we’re featuring some of our favorite indie authors to showcase some writing that you may not be able to find in your local bookstores. These authors go it alone, doing all of their own publishing, marketing and everything in between. We hope you’ll enjoy this month’s posts introducing you to each of them and our interviews with them.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kim Stokely, author of Woman of Flames and the upcoming Winter Trees (September, 2014).

A little about Kim:
kimThe wife of a submariner, Kim has lived in eight states over the last twenty years. She used her background in Drama (a B.F.A. from the University of Connecticut and a Master’s Degree from Regent University) to stay relatively sane throughout all those moves by performing in various plays and musicals, including a one-person show about women in the Bible. In 2004, the Navy transferred her family to Omaha, Nebraska, a perfectly logical move that never made sense to her mother.

An avid reader, Kim has written novels in several genres, including Biblical and Inspirational Fiction and Young Adult Fantasy. Kim’s story Winter Trees was a semi-finalist in the Christian Writer’s Guild’s 2010 Operation First Novel contest. Her non-fiction Inspirational and humor stories have appeared in several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, Vista and online at TheChristianPulse.com.

She loves all things chocolate, except garlic-peanut butter cups. Some things should never be mixed. Please visit www.kimstokely.com to read a story, find out about upcoming performances, or just to say “hi.”

 

A little about her books:

woman-of-flamesWoman of Flames

Based on the life of a Jewish prophet, Woman of Flames is a sweeping epic of how faith, lust, and revenge can drive nations into war. As a child, Deborah must convince those around her that her visions are a gift from the Hebrew God, whom she is called to serve. As she matures, Deborah battles the prejudices of her people to achieve the position God has ordained, that of a spiritual leader for Israel. Growing in confidence and power, Deborah accepts God’s promise to use her to free the Israelites from their oppressors. One man stands in her way‒Sisera, general of the Canaanite army.

With nine hundred chariots, thousands of soldiers and the help of a sadistic priest, Sisera relentlessly pursues his one objective—total annihilation of the Israelites. After he captures Deborah, his life is altered in ways he never dreamed possible. Attracted to her power and consumed by her beauty, Sisera’s single obsession becomes to possess Deborah, body and soul. Deborah fights against the temptations of her enemy, and her own fears, to ignite a fire of rebellion that could set her people free.

 

Winter Trees (releasing September 2014)

Meet the residents and staff of Marigold Manor Assisted Living. Edith MacPherson – the stately and practical farmer’s widow, teams up with former Navy Admiral, Frank Leno, to play matchmaker. Their targets? Chester, the facility’s friendly chef with the heart-of-gold; and Ginny, Edith’s beautiful granddaughter.

Edith and Frank work diligently to plant the seeds of love, but first, they must overcome Ginny’s grieving heart and a surprise suitor who threatens to uproot their plan. Finally, it’s Chester’s secret past that may stop any romance from growing.

But the two matchmakers are nothing if not persistent. They’ve lived too long, and learned too much, to give up hope. They know that the darkest, coldest winter won’t last forever; barren winter trees bloom again in the spring; and everyone deserves a second chance at love.

Including themselves.
