themuslimLove in a time of Terror

On a beautiful spring day in 2001, a 9-year-old American girl met a 10-year-old Arab boy who played the Arabic flute in the Persian garden of an Israeli electronics engineer. They knew nothing about each other. Karen knew only that boy with the flute was named was Omar, and his music was the most beautiful sound she had ever heard. Omar knew only that the girl from America was named Karen, and had golden hair. Neither understood that they lived at the end of an era, the era before September 11th, 2001, when the War on Terror began and divided their cultures forever.

Twenty years later, on a chance encounter, Karen Wingfield meets a man named Omar Arraf working at a local business in Oklahoma City. Could he be the boy with the flute?

The Muslim, by Callen Clarke explores the loves, the hates, and the passions of two cultures, Palestinian and American, what divides us as citizens, and what unites us as human beings. A story of Love and Tragedy in the grand tradition of Romeo and Juliet, The Muslim by Callen Clarke uncovers the universal truths concealed beneath the prejudices of politics, lust, and religion, while illuminating the world-changing power of the greatest weapon in human conflict: Grace.

Enduring Love

Genre: Christian Fiction

Publication date: March 16, 2018

ASIN: B07B8X7RVY

No one ever truly realizes the power of their love, until love is tested and they have to endure things unimaginable and sometimes hurtful. And if the truth is declared, no one wants to but…
Sometimes we find ourselves standing in the test of love and this is exactly where Priscilla Marshall finds herself. Married to Steven since she graduated college, together they were the perfect couple. Both making successful business moves, both loved their choices, but one had a secret that could change their lives.
Priscilla, now forced to make a plan to secure her future, finds out that a plan without God involved is not a plan at all because “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21). What will God use to make this woman’s plan come full circle with His own, and after the test, will they find that they truly do have an Enduring Love?


About the Author


Danyelle is the Senior Pastor of New Vessels Ministries North in Shreveport, Louisiana, who is a dynamic author of both Christian fiction and non-fiction books. She studied Theology at Louisiana Baptist University, has a Psychology Degree from the University of Phoenix, an Interdisciplinary Degree in Psychology /Biblical Studies, and a Master’s in Religious Education from the Liberty University. She owns Divinely Sown Publishing LLC and is an avid reader. She is the wife of Pastor Reynard Scroggins and the mother of three.



Priscilla reasoned why God would choose her to be the carrier of life. Married for almost fifteen years, sexual pleasures only happened on special occasions. Often without romance, and starting with a touch here, feel there, and a real quick release on his part. The thought of making a baby vanished long ago.

In reality, indecisiveness plagued her like a severe toothache regarding being a wife or instead, being his wife. Her mind and ambitions settled on being the audacious executive she fancied herself. Relinquishing all thoughts of motherhood, that were now nowhere in the plan.
Many are the plans of man…but it is the Lord’s plans that prevail.
Dr. Thorpe’s private practice became her haven, the place where swift answers and solutions to her most pressing issues materialized. Today, he acted as the grim reaper delivering death-blows instead of solutions. Death to her plans, dreams, and her one hundred and thirty-five-pound figure. She worked hard for her body, and to destroy it for a child neither of them wanted put her in a complete stupor.

As she sat in a makeshift gown barely covering her breasts, Priscilla sighed. Moving to get more comfortable on the green leather table-bed covered with a sheet of wrinkled white paper, she felt hopeless. Priscilla swung her legs as though they could propel her into another space in time. She took a deep breath. Lumps in her throat seemed to suffocate her and caused her to give in to the explosive stream of tears cascading down her face.

How am I going to care for a child in the midst of running a company? Marshall’s Mortgage a premier mortgage company and her baby, her purpose that bequeathed her employees who became family. A creative concept and idea birthed right after leaving college with a degree in accounting and nourished with intensity and integrity. The thought of leaving it with anyone for more than a day or two frightened her. Because of this baby, she would have no choice.

“Priscilla? Are you alright?” Dr. Thorpe inquired.

Startled by his voice and still confused, she hadn’t noticed his return. “Dr. Thorpe, I’m not alright. This pregnancy is so unexpected. I thought maybe the flu or a virus. But this? I took a darn pill every day since Steven and I married. They’re supposed to prevent this. I don’t understand how it could happen,” she responded with a pant and sniffle between words.
“I’ve been an OB doctor for well over twenty years, and I promise I see women who swear they took their birth-control pill on time and still got pregnant. I know you are quite familiar with God and His work. And, I consider us close friends so I can say this.”
Priscilla nodded.

“No matter what and how we try, we can never abort the plans of God. He knows this child is going to gain a complete knowledge of Him. The Father chose you and Steven to protect, nurture, and train him or her in the way they should go. Priscilla instead of the questions why and how be excited, and grateful God chose you.”

“I don’t feel like this is something I want to do. I don’t even know if I can do it.”

Welcome to Silverpines!

Silverpines, Oregon 1899

Parker J. Cole, circa February 2018

Fans of my work know I write contemporary sweet and edgy Christian romances with a multicultural bent. I never thought I would venture down a different path but one thing you can be sure of: change is the one constant of life.

Earlier this year, I joined a group of nine authors and together, we created the town Silverpines, Oregon in the year 1899. If you love mail-order bride books, then you’re going to love Silverpines.

Silverpines has been devastated by natural disasters. Beloved husbands, sons, and brothers are gone. The women of Silverpines MUST band together in order to survive. But instead of the brides leaving hearth and home, the women of Silverpines send off for a group of mail-order grooms!

Who are the men who answer the call of the women’s plight? Will they be what the women need to build up the town up again? Find out today with the first story of Silverpines called Mail Order Marshal by George McVey, a great author and friend, Mail Order Marshal is also a Brides of Beckham crossover story and releases today!

My own Silverpines novel–the first time I’ve ever written a historical romnce–will be out later on this year. The closer it gets, I’ll let you know.

Until next time, carpe diem and download the first book of Silverpines today!

Betsy Pike’s world comes crashing down when her fiancé, Silverpines’ Town Marshal, is gunned down on the eve of their wedding. To add insult to injury, his killer takes over every part of Ike’s life, the job of marshal, his house, and he even wants Betsy. What’s a girl to do? The men of the town won’t stand up to the outlaw and self-appointed marshal. When he gives her two months to grieve, Betsy comes up with a desperate plan: contact Elizabeth Tandy and order up a husband who has experience as a lawman.

Alexzander Sewell feels like he’s in the wrong place in Beckham, Massachusetts. Born and raised on Ryder Mountain in Harlan, Kentucky, he longs for the mountains of his youth. When his mother moved the whole family to remarry, he became stuck in the town of Beckham. Now his friends, the Tandy’s, offer him a chance to go west, all the way to the Rocky Mountains. The only catch: he must marry a woman in desperate need of a husband and a lawman. Can he find a way to be what Betsy needs and spend time in the mountains?

Can Betsy let go of her love for Ike and learn to love her mail order husband? Can Alexzander compromise on his dream of disappearing into the mountains to be the man his wife needs? Can they bring the killer to justice or will a series of natural disasters not only spell the end of Silverpines but of their marriage, too? What’s a woman to do when she orders up a Mail Order Marshal?

A Heart Can Be Broken — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerSome time ago, I experienced the loss of a very close friendship. Circumstances had caused friction and thus, the split. I remember to this day the physical sensations which had assaulted me.  I couldn’t quite catch my breath. My vocal cords tightened so much I had a hard time swallowing. In the center of my chest, I felt a peculiar ache. It’s hard to describe it exactly so forgive me if I sound a bit melodramatic  — a pain that did not sting, a cut that did not burn, but a hurt that burrowed inside of me. When I discussed this in one of my writer groups, after all, the physical abnormalities lasted for a couple of days, a mental health professional told me, “It sounds like you had a traumatic event which may very well be a broken heart. ”

A broken heart. As authors, we use the words to describe a character’s plight but perhaps we forget that our stories are ripped out of the pages of real life.

The words of Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do with It?” ask a question about why fall in in love when a heart can be broken? In fact, she says, “Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?”
