AMY WALLACE and HEALING PROMISES
Facing a new threat
When FBI Agent Clint Rollins takes a bullet during a standoff, it might just save his life. But not even the ugly things he’s seen during his years working in the Crimes Against Children Unit could prepare him for the overwhelming powerlessness of hospital tests revealing an unexpected diagnosis. If only Sara weren’t retreating into doctor mode…he needs his wife now more than ever.
Frozen in fear
Sara Rollins is an oncologist with a mission–beating cancer when she can, easing her patients’ suffering at the very least. Now the life of her tall Texan husband is at stake. She never let the odds steal her hope before, but now the question of God’s healing promises is personal. Can she hold on to the truth she claimed to believe?
Faith under fire
As Clint continues to track down a serial kidnapper despite his illness, former investigations haunt his nightmares, pushing him beyond solving the case into risking his life and career. Clint struggles to believe God is still the God of miracles. Especially when he needs not one, but two. Everything in his life is reduced to one all-important question: Can God be trusted?

MORE ABOUT AMY………
I’m a wife, homeschool mom, writer, speaker, Bible study leader, and avid chocoholic. Those are the hats I love to wear, but who I really am is a daughter of the King learning to live and love with laughter.
I grew up all over the world. As a military brat (and often the bratty form of that moniker) I moved every three years of my life. During my school years I hated all the moving and constantly changing social situations. I mean, middle school in and of itself was bad enough-moving only made it worse. As an adult, I look back and see more positives than negatives though. The crash courses on cultural awareness and fast friendship 101 are lessons that still serve me well.
Home for me was Louisville (pronounced Lu-a-vul), KY. That’s where we always transitioned to for a time and where I ended up graduating from high school and college~ GO CARDS! What moved me from Louisville to Georgia was a gorgeous blue-eyed missionary named David. We met and married in ten months time and started a whirlwind romance that has been much like a supersonic roller coaster. Lots of exciting high points~ three so special their names reflect the gifts they are to their mommy and daddy.
But like every good roller coaster, for each thrilling high, there are crashing lows. Those have names too~ addiction, miscarriage, marital separation, job losses, diabetes issues. This probably sounds funny, but after over twelve years of struggles we’re thankful for “normal” marriage issues like how night owls and early birds ever get to bed at the same time. What brought us to the healing place we’re enjoying now were beloved friends who never gave up on us, the prayers of God’s people~ including our three incredible daughters, and a few amazing ministers/ counselors who have held out the truth and given us tools to walk with God whole, full, and healthy.
This is where my life and writing journey intersect. As God worked in my heart and my home, He also started planting tons of stories in my head. After September 11, 2001 I felt the overwhelming urge to write down the stories bouncing around my brain. Out of that national tragedy came a literal dream that wouldn’t let go. It included FBI characters and a deep desire to give tribute to the agents who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to see our country both protected and healed. The story I wrote in about six weeks also required me to walk through my greatest fear, that of losing my precious children. These two different plot lines converged to create a story entitled Ransomed Dreams.
From typing the words “THE END” on my first novel, there was no turning back. I’ve tried a few times over the years to quit, but God’s calling to share my heart is too strong and the stories too loud to ever think I could walk away. Since completing my first novel, I’ve written two more novels for moms, two novellas, a fairytale for my princesses, and a growing collection of short stories. Four of those short stories have been chosen for publication, three were published in 2006. And my first novel, Ransomed Dreams, released in April 2007.
