I anxiously awaited my copy of “Red Ink“by author Kathi Macias to arrive from Amazon, as I had gone to every bookstore, including Christian Bookstores to try to find it; they were either sold out or awaiting shipment. While awaiting the arrival of my copy, I started reading other reviews and impressions of the book, which increased my excitement and wanting to dive in to the read as soon as it arrived.
Admittedly, I have not read any other books or novels by Kathi Macias's, so “Red Ink” was my first exposure to her writing style...A baptism by "Red Ink"!!
I am a die-hard Jane Austen, Dickens fan and in Christian writing...C.S. Lewis, Francine Rivers, Jerry Jenkins and Tom LaHaye connoisseur. I like my stories descriptive and meaty, challenging my knowledge (historical and/or scriptural), while working with analogies and metaphors to develop the characters and plot....building the conflict to a boiling point that the reader's thirst for the answers or solution are met and then lead the reader to a place where they want more, while creating the anticipation for the next good read. My expectations as a reader is high and even when I delight in an easy/fun read...I want a challenge to draw me back to the book and to more works from the same author.
"Red Ink"” is multi-faceted with three different storylines that ultimately interconnect. I was immediately caught up in the story as Ms Macias's writing technique of introducing all three storylines in the first few short chapters intrigued me, yet didn't overwhelm with too much information. It is a story of perseverance in the face of evil, the power of unceasing prayers and unshakeable faith in a God that promises deliverance from evil.

What is a Strong woman or a Brave story?
I have struggled with this topic for a long time, as I do not have a story of great trial to tell, I do not suffer from disease, chronic pain or disabilities....I was raised in a “Beaver Cleaver” home...my parents were good, kind Christian folks who had been raised in the Depression and lived through WW II....I was blessed. The only thing that has been a challenge for me is being a victim of my own poor decisions, my rebellious attitudes at times and even my spoiled self-centered self.
I was recently asked by Christian author Lyn Cote to write an article for her blog [Link Removed] I had been following the blog closely and was amazed at the stories of great strength in tough times...bravery in challenges that would defeat the strongest of persons. How could I put my story amongst these wonderful and successful women...especially since I have not reached my goals...found my dreams complete like most who were posting. My successes and strength and bravery were not my own...in fact, the majority of my life I have rebelled against the One that gave me strength and made me brave on a daily basis.
Please check out the article I wrote and PLEASE comment there. I greatly appreciate your time and your comments.
The other morning I was sitting at my computer, as always, writing away at my blogs and other websites, when my middle daughter, Sally came in to my office visibly shaken and upset. She came straight over to me and gave me the biggest hug...long and hard...one like she never wanted to let go. As I pulled away from her, I saw that she was still upset and asked why. She fell in to my arms again and through tears said she had had a dream that I had died suddenly...that it was so REAL and she woke up with a start, upset that she had to find me to make sure I was okay.
In that moment, I was transported back to the many times that I had had those same dreams about my own mother.
