Gay N. Lewis ~ Amazon Best Seller in Three Categories!

Today I'm excited to have Gay N. Lewis. Last week she was number one in these three categories on Amazon:
#1 in Books > Christian Books & Bibles > Literature & Fiction > Science Fiction & Fantasy
#1 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Religious & Inspirational > Science Fiction & Fantasy
#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Religious Fiction > Science Fiction & Fantasy

A native Texan, Gay lives in Fulshear—a small town west of Houston. Gay has always been involved with creative and artistic ventures. Two videos she produced—The Canadian Rockies, English and Japanese translations, and Psalms from the Mountains, were sold in Canada and America as well as international markets. Both were well received. For the San Felipe Baptist Association, she was a contributor for the video Many Churches, One Vision.
Graphic skills kept her busy as a portrait photographer, and for over ten years, she used her imaginative insight in the interior design field.
Gay’s real love is writing and reading—both go nicely together. As a pastor’s wife, she has written, produced, and photographed many programs, and her Faith Features have been published in various church periodicals.
Gay teaches an adult Bible study every Sunday morning and is often called upon for speaking engagements. When needed, she plays the piano and serves as worship leader in her husband’s church.
Gay’s family reside in Texas—three daughters and four grandchildren.
She features the verse from Col: 3:17 on her website.
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father though him.” Zondervan NIV

Sarah: A Mission of Love

Sarah, a directionally challenged little angel, gets her first assignment on earth. It’s mid-January and she needs to find a partner for Tom Shoemaker by Valentine’s Day. He’s a wealthy businessman in Houston but he’s been asked to fill his late father’s position in the pulpit of a small, rural church.

Sarah intervenes as Tom takes his mother, Allison, to The Pie Palace. Due to Sarah’s ravenous appetite she turns herself into a human so she may indulge in earthly food. Playing with the sugar packets she drops the white powder on the floor. When Sarah crouches to clean up her mess, she trips the waitress, Marcy, who dumps a full tray of food into Tom’s lap.

Marcy and her young daughter, Hope, live alone in the small town after the death in Afghanistan of Marcy’s husband. She is struggling to keep her job and raise her daughter.

Through Allison’s unexpected invitation to dinner and bungling Sarah’s attempts to keep the couple together a relationship develops. Sarah has lost her instructions on how she should complete the mission and takes on more responsibility, tells some lies and due to her fondness for cheeseburgers finds herself in hilarious situations. Her desire to wear stilettos is one of her many endearing qualities.

The elders want a decision from Tom on the ministry and his confusion causes Marcy to question their relationship. Will they be together in time for Valentine’s Day? Will Sarah please her superiors in The Heavenlies and be allowed to return?

Gay L. Lewis writes an engaging comedy with a powerful message. One of the lines I enjoyed the most was from Mother Goodness, Sarah’s mentor: Your situation isn’t all of one thing and nothing of another. You aren’t doomed to failure. You are somewhere between the noting you think you are and the victory you can achieve.”

I enjoyed Sarah’s adventures and I’m anxious to read more about her in: Sarah: Laney’s Angel.
