As mentioned at the beginning of this newsletter, we are welcoming two new Author Masterminds.
Meet, Fran Lynghaug, author of Genesis and the Secret of Eden.
I have four published books, three of which were published by Voyageur Press, (now known as Quarto). My book, The Official Horse Breeds Standards Guide, was one of three finalists (animals division) in the prestigious IBPA Benjamin Publisher’s Awards in 2010. This competition has some 80,000+ books submitted by publishers annually across the nation. I co-authored my third book, Horse Training, with the famous TV host trainer, Dennis Brouse. I also have two other horse books. My newest book, “Genesis”, won ninth place out of 103 submissions, all genres, in the Ink & Insights national literary contest in 2020. It is totally different than my other books. It’s the story of God’s love for Adam and Eve using insights taken from Scripture. So far, readers have been saying it has impacted them greatly. Some couldn’t put it down until the end and some have said it brought them to tears. I call it my “miracle book”.
Fran lives with her husband in the beautiful countryside of Downing, Wisconsin. She has five children. She’s done public speaking at high schools and libraries on how to be a successful author (who actually makes money!)
As a Christian for more than 40 years, Fran has been a leader in women ministries, Alpha Programs, Bible study groups, and other church ministries.
Genesis and the Secret of Eden
Anything is possible in the garden of God!
A cloudy fog rose abruptly out of the ground about fifty feet in front of them. A magnificently handsome figure in the midst gradually took shape. He didn’t send his thoughts to them the same way Adam and Eve talked with their thoughts, but used spoken verbiage.

Featured Book Club Member
Let’s get to know our fellow book club members, as he answer some get to know me questions. Meet, Ron Rabe!
NAME: Ron Rabe
CLUB MEMBER SINCE: 2019
FAVORITE BOOK OF ALL TIME: Gulliver’s Travels: Travel into Several Remote Nation
FAVORITE AUTHOR: Stephen King
FAVORITE / PREFERRED GENRE: Fantasy, Crime, Thriller
FAVORITE PLACE TO READ: The public library. Some of my greatest reading experiences have been in libraries. I especially love open-shelf libraries, big and small, because that way you can just happen on random books, and you can wind up reading a book you never thought you would like. It’s a great place to experiment with different kinds of books and different genres. And being surrounded by other readers reminds you of this great thing we all have in common.
BOOK OR MOVIES (FROM BOOKS): Harry Potter
CURRENT READ: Red Star: Water Bird’s Shadow
Thanks for sharing some of the things you like, Ron!
