#ThursdayThoughts with Tanya Stowe @TanyaStowe1

Good Morning and Welcome to the last Thursday Thoughts of April 2015!

Today I'm pleased to bring you a guest post by friend and fellow Pelican Book Group author, Tanya Stowe that relates to her new book, Sedona Sunset so without much further ado....here's Tanya....

God connects with us in so many ways but I see him most frequently in nature. Every day when I take my walks, I marvel at the intricacies of His creation…and His sense of humor.

I live in California in the Mojave Desert. The largest plant in my area is called the Joshua Tree. It belongs to the yucca family and can grow up to 49 feet tall. Joshua Trees have spiny leaves and a deep root system that allows them to survive the high desert winds without toppling. They grow in only two places in the world, the Holy Land and the Mojave.

The Colorado River serves as the border between California and Arizona but the Mojave Desert continues, spreading across northern Arizona. That state’s most familiar plant is the tall Saguaro, a cactus with spikes and spindly arms, most usually depicted in a cowboy hat with six guns strapped on. Like the Joshua Tree, the Saguaro can grow up to 49 feet high but it’s root system is shallow and spread out to catch the monsoon rains that flow up from southern Arizona.

Both plants are the reigning monarchs of their area. Both live in the Mojave Desert but you will not see them together. Once you cross the California border into Arizona, the Joshua Tree disappears…replaced by the Saguaro.

That thought always makes me smile. Our Creator recognizes our borders…and our limitations. He tries very hard not to confuse us and commands Nature to do the same.

After an auto accident leaves her crippled and takes her mother’s life, Lara Fallon completes her mother’s dream of opening a school and offering scholarships to promising young artists. Although Lara is struggling with survivor’s guilt, she is thrilled that Alexander Summers, world-renown Flamenco player and professor of art, will perform at the grand opening of The Fallon School of Art. But Alex has a secret. He investigates art theft for UNESCO, and when pieces of Chaco pottery suddenly appear on the black market, Alex is certain The Fallon School of Art is a cover for this illegal operation. He’s determined to uncover the link...even if it means romantically pursuing the lovely Lara Fallon. Alex’s investigation leads him on collision course with Lara’s inner struggle to cope with her mother’s death and her own wavering faith in God. Now, Lara’s school and her heart are in danger. But is her life as well?

Love the post, Tanya! I never cease to be amazed by the beauty hiding in the dry desert...especially around springtime, when it bursts into a kaleidoscope of color that can take my breath away.

I'm so excited that Sedona Sunset has finally released. It's an amazing story written by a talented author...what could be better? :)
