Good Morning and Happy Halloween!
Nothing spooky going on here on our blog....only GREAT news! In case you haven't noticed the sidebar....two great things. First a rafflecopter contest to win a Kindle Fire and notification that Keri's Christmas Wish is a finalist in OKRWA's 2017 IDA contest!
Although today's guest was mentioned on the blog several years ago, he is actually new to being featured and to many of you here.
“The King of the Trees” subsequently won the 2014 Silver Medal in the category of “Christian Fantasy.”
All seven of Burt’s series titles have been awarded five stars by Readers’ Favorite reviewers. He was also a 2013 finalist in The Authors Show.com "50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading" competition.
Volume I in his new Creation Seekers series, “The Lake Lights” is William Burt’s first foray into the realm of science fiction. The plot deals with the investigation of an unusual lake phenomenon in Oregon as well as the discovery of a world-changing invention that helps prevent a nuclear disaster.
As an Assistant Professor in the Special Education Department at Western Oregon University, Burt served as a successful grant-writer and program coordinator. He holds a B.S. in English from Lewis and Clark College and an M.S. from Western Oregon University in Deaf Education. Burt has been an RID-certified sign-language interpreter with over forty years’ experience. His interests include reading, foreign languages and mycology. He is married with two grown children and two grandchildren.
Although I treasure my wife and son, at the moment, my daughter (pictured) is a special blessing to us all. She spent eight years teaching kindergarten but has always wanted children of her own. After three early-term miscarriages (one of which nearly killed her), she was told that her uterus is malformed and that she would never be able to carry a child to term. Determined to prove her doctor wrong, she is now pregnant again and in her tenth week (as of 9/16)—this time without complications. In the photo, my daughter has just had her hair cut after letting it grow for about four years to fulfill a vow. She had told God she wouldn’t cut her hair until she could have a child. Since only 3-5% of pregnancies at this stage end in miscarriage, she decided the time had come to donate her locks to a worthy cause.
OH Wow, William, how wonderful! Keep us posted on that baby and give your daughter a hug for us.

Hope you enjoyed today's post, friends and that you'll drop by each week for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.
Until next time, take care and God bless.
