Christian Fiction. Because we’re in the world, not of it.
Welcome! I’m Jericha Kingston, and I’m delighted to host author Pegg Thomas on our maiden blog voyage. Her latest release, In Sheep’s Clothing, is now available and you don’t want to miss it. Take it away, Pegg!
It’s wonderful to be Jericha’s first guest blogger! I’ve been writing buddies with her for a number of years. Her Easter novella, Waiting for Lily Bloom, is still one of my all-time favorites.
I loved writing In Sheep’s Clothing. Yarrow Fenn has more of *me* in her than any of my other heroines. She’s a spinner and weaver – I’m a spinner and knitter, although I’ve also done some weaving. She raises an orphan lamb – I spent many years raising sheep and still keep a small flock of ewes for their wool. And she lives in Milford, Connecticut, where some of my ancestors settled when they arrived in the Puritan wave of the mid-to-late 1600s.
Peter Maltby is my favorite kind of hero. He’s loveably flawed, with some demons in his past that he struggles with, but deep down he’s got a heart of gold. All it takes is a talented spinster and an orphan lamb to dig deep enough to bring it out.
In honor of being Jericha Kingston’s first guest on her exciting new blog, I’d like to offer one copy of In Sheep’s Clothing to a reader who leaves a comment below. Tell me of your connection to sheep or knitting or weaving and get your name in the drawing twice. The drawing will be on Friday, March 19th.
This story won the 2019 Romance Writers of America’s Faith, Hope, & Love Award. It was also a finalist for the 2019 American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Awards.
Pegg Thomas lives on a hobby farm in Northern Michigan with Michael, her husband of *mumble* years. They raise sheep and chickens and keep a few barn cats, along with Murphy the spoiled rotten dog. When not working or writing, Pegg can be found in her barn, her garden, her kitchen, or sitting at her spinning wheel creating yarn to turn into her signature wool shawls.
Get your copy of In Sheep’s Clothing, and comment to be entered in the drawing!
