Ready for some fun? Please welcome my guest, Sharon Srock!


304415_431979226861156_966184177_nI’m thrilled to introduce you to my guest for the hunt. Sharon Srock is a fellow Okie – how cool is that? We met at a book signing in Oklahoma City a few years ago, and she is as delightful as the stories she writes.  Twenty five years ago, Sharon cut her writer’s teeth on Star Trek fiction, but today she writes inspirational novels of ordinary women using their faith to accomplish extraordinary things. She lives in central Oklahoma with her husband and three very large dogs. Sharon would love for you to connect with her on her website, FaceBook, Goodreads, or Pinterest.

Her books include: The Women of Valley View: Callie and The Women of Valley View: Terri, both of which are currently available. The Women of Valley View: Pam will release in early 2014.

To introduce readers to her writing, Sharon has a couple of freebies you don’t want to miss!



The book that goes into the Catch Me If You Can hunt basket is The Women of Valley View: Callie

The Women of Valley View: Series Overview

Sometimes a woman needs another woman to lean on, to draw strength from, to share her secrets with. Someone who knows the dark moments of her past and loves her anyway. Someone to tell her the truth, even when it stings. Someone to pray for her. Someone to remind her that God still loves her. That’s what THE WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW do best. Women with careers and women who stay at home. Wealthy, middle class, young and old and everything in between. Women raising their families alonside of empty nesters. Women with dreams for their futures and hurts that haunt their past. THE WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW, sisters of the heart, bound together by the ties of “forever family.”

The Women of Valley View: Callie

perf5.500x8.500.inddThree dire circumstances. Three desperate prayers. One miracle to save them all.

Callie Stillman is drawn to the evasive girl who’s befriended her granddaughter, but the last time Callie tried to help a child, her efforts backfired. Memories of the tiny coffin still haunt her.

Samantha and Iris Evans should be worried about homework, not whether they can pool enough cash to survive another week of caring for an infant while evading the authorities.

Steve Evans wants a second chance at fatherhood, but his children are missing.  And no one seems to want to help the former addict who deserted his family.

For Steve to regain the relationship he abandoned, for his girls to receive the care they deserve, Callie must surrender her fear and rely on God to work the miracle they all need.


Carla, here! Thank you, Sharon, for sharing about your books and being my guest on Those Were The Days. Your stories fit right in. And THANK YOU, readers and hunters who’ve joined Sharon and me. Ready to continue?
