After 20 years of working as an assistant director and stage manager of multiple stage productions and dance concerts, and partaking in music, voice, and art, it was only logical that D. Perdue Henderson would become a novelist too. Her interest in character development and Why People Do What They Do, piqued her interest in psychology and sociology. After taking classes in these fields, and plenty of research, it gave her the perspective she needed to write about the more difficult subjects like abduction and depression, but in a way that is sensitive, yet entertaining. Every story captivates! You will think about the subject long after you finish reading one of her books. Her first novel Branded (CreateSpace, 2010) is a good example. It is a suspense thriller about a kidnapped child and lost innocence. A disturbing subject for some, but it is written in a way young adults can identify. Her second novel Hayden Heyer and the Twin Guardians (Twin Guardian Publishing, 2012) is the opposite – a fantasy romance with Christian themes. It introduces the reader to the basics of Christianity in a way non-Christians can appreciate, by putting it in perspective with the contrary and adding cute characters.

I cannot believe the extent of the devastation in Japan. The strength and amount of aftershocks those people must endure is incredible. It’s like living through an initial earthquake a hundred times over. It was evident that no one was prepared for an 8.9 magnitude earthquake. It’s almost as if someone snuck up behind them and …
