More About the Author
At sixteen, she naively sent a handwritten manuscript to a major publisher. She actually got a response. An editor had taken the time to read her manuscript and respond, writing that she had talent but wasn't yet ready for publication. (Just try to get an editor to do that these days. You're lucky to get the notorious form letter.)
She sold her first novel fifteen years later and has been writing ever since. After fourteen conventionally-published novels, she made the switch to self-publishing with Chasing the Wind in 2008--a decision she's never regretted.

Lynne Raven is an archaeologist seeking physical proof of the Biblical Exodus in the Sinai. She's often far from her home and family in America, occasionally feeling the notion that time is catching up to her. Her work begins to be funded by Connor, who meets her by chance, finds her intriguing, and accompanies her to the dig site. He's a man of many secrets and difficult family relations with a sister, Sarah, and step-father, Edward. We find ourselves wondering at first if he's mentally stable. It's a question Connor himself wonders. He's a man who keeps himself at a distance, closed off from the world, the pain of his mother's death an overwhelming factor in his life. He also has, as we gradually see, an innate ability to heal with his own touch.
Gradually Connor and Lynne fall in love as they get to know each other, as Lynne gradually gets him to open up to her. Their courtship, such as it is, is filled with lightness and humour, Connor going out of his way to openly flirt with Lynne and win her over, and they marry. It doesn't take long before they're expecting a child, but circumstances quickly send them on the run.Read more ›
It revolves around a religious archeologist named Lynne and a mysterious man named Connor. They meet and fall in love, but there's more. Connor has some secrets--like being able to heal the sick and the dying.
After getting married, and becoming pregnant, they must run for their lives. There are people that want Connor and his young son. When he must be separated from his young family, it is the hardest thing for him to do. But, he has to, in order to be reunited with them again, he must stay away.
This book is beyong a doubt, one of the best books I've read in a long time.
My friend Norma Beishir's book `Chasing the Wind' is one of the most beautiful and thrilling love stories I ever read. There is plot development on top of plot development and the careful weaving of suspense mixed with paranormal spiritual intrigue and touches of humor. Norma takes the oldest story in the book--the one about good and evil and transforms it into a masterpiece. You'll be riding around following behind the footsteps of an archeologist and a geneticist and watching masterminds shrouded in evil, who are drunk on gaining power in delightful scenes that take place in exciting locales like London, Cairo and Christchurch. The characters are formed into amazing likenesses of biblical proportions with names that make it easy to follow along. Obviously the guy called Dante can't be up to anything good and when he says, "Not everyone who worships is worshipping God," you know where his loyalties lie and you also know that you better buckle your seat belt for a fabulous ride.
Since I don't want to spoil anything by giving too much away, I just have to mention the things that I relate to in the book. There's a theme about nightmares and dreams and Norma's hero Conner says he saw the heroine's face in his dream decades before he actually meets her. My husband told me he dreamt of my face thirty or forty years before he met me.Read more ›
