More About the Author

I've been writing Christian fiction for 30 years now, with five publishers. What I have learned (and keep learning) is that the most powerful story in the world is that of redemptive love. So I keep working at it, trying to get the story right, and to adequately express something that is really beyond me. I post regular updates on my Facebook page, so please stop by! And be sure to watch the Streiker Movie trailer: http://tinyurl.com/objhhn3

Coming late 2014 or early 2015, look for the NEW book featuring Fletcher and Adair Streiker with Sammy Kidman and his crew. This will be a sequel to both Streiker's Morning Sun (4th edition) and Sammy: The Consolation of Bucephalus.

Format: Paperback
Robin Hardy's newest entry in the Latter Annals of Lystra is an engaging read. Ares' twin daughters are growing up and getting into more mischief than ever, mischief with serious consequences for those trying to protect them. Meanwhile, the royal court is still a treacherous place where the games aren't always just for fun.

What is most intriguing is the overarching storyline of the series as a whole. I'm looking forward to the final three books and seeing how everything works together. I love these characters.

More, please.

Format: Paperback
In her latest addition to the Latter Annals of Lystra, Robin Hardy brings humor, romance, adventure and spiritual truths together, and blends them beautifully. There is something so enjoyable about seeing children grow, and at the same time, seeing good triumph over evil--even if it takes a while. Ares and Nicole battle with trust, the whole palace must defeat their own complacency and desire to be entertained, and children of all ages must mature into responsible, reliable, caring adults. We see the growth not only of Bonnie, Sophie and Henry, but also of Nicole and Renee, as they discover that some things are better left in the hands of the Creator.

Games can be dangerous when taken too much to heart, and that, I think, is the essence of this novel. Games can destroy friendships, create misunderstandings, and scar both body and soul for life. The truths explored here are unforgettable, and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good laugh, seeks adventure, and gets lost in sweet romances. I love this book and I can't wait for the next one!

Format: Paperback
Games of God and Men was so much fun to read that when I reached the last page I wanted the next book to start on. Combined with plenty of action and excitement is a clear message, that we must be faithful and obedient, listen to the Lord, and let Him handle our problems, a message with a ring of truth. Troubles come thick and fast when characters are doing their duty and being obedient. The world says to stand up for ourselves, but Jesus said "Blessed are the poor in spirit." Games of God and Men has a tremendous amount of biblical living in it. The battles are fought in the heart, where God prepares us for the task He has assigned us. The title is most apt; everyone is playing games; God is molding us to be useable. This is fantasy at its best, an imaginary kingdom with human characters confronting elemental problems of pretense, greed, arrogance, and lust for power. At the same time it is a mystery/detective story in a race to see who can discover Twomey's identity first and use that knowledge to his/her advantage. I'm eager to read the book again soon.
