Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The theme of  Stopped Cold is:  You don't have to be number one for God to love you. As a young adult I saw lots of heartache in several instances when people weren't number one. Sadly, the drive pushed some of them to destructive behavior. I could only imagine the pain they must have gone through and how their God-given talents were wasted simply because they weren't "the best." The fact that God gave us all a gift or gifts to use for Him kept rattling around in my head until I decided to write about it. When I thought of being number one, even though we can win everything from a pie-tasting contest to a spelling bee, sports came to mind. As a young person I loved Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys and wanted to write a mystery. I pondered how to connect a sports story and a mystery, and steroids came to mind. When I researched steroid use, one of the main reasons given for taking them was a desire to excel in athletics. This rounded out the book for my theme. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

I grew up at the foothills of the awe-inspiring North Carolina Mountains in a small Christian community. I love using these hills as settings in my books. I think my novels turn out as Christian because I'm doing what all critics and renowned authors suggest. I'm writing about what I know.

I also enjoy sports. I swim laps, and my daughter was a U.S. swimmer. As a team mom I performed nearly every duty one can have at a meet from timer to coordinator.  We met lots of great people through our involvement with the activity. Not to mention, it's fun and rewarding.

Research and history fascinate me. Sometimes when I'm gathering facts for a book, I'll get lost in the subject I'm reading about and neglect writing for a while. I also like to interview people and did that professionally for years when I published articles about the accomplishments of others. I don't hesitate to first find out all I can about a particular subject then call on experts in that field to verify my work. The more I listen the more I learn.

READER’S FAVORITE 5-STAR REVIEW FOR BARELY ABOVE WATER

reviewed by Deborah Stone (Sept. 19, 2016)

"Barely Above Water by Gail Pallotta has a powerful and heart wrenching message that we all need to hear. Suzie has something wrong with her, but no one seems to know what. Without a diagnosis, she is perceived, by some, to be lazy and complaining. No medical doctor has been able to help, so Suzie takes a giant leap of faith and trusts God to lead her. She moves to Florida to see an alternative medicine doctor that once helped her mother's friend. With no job, she relies on God and her savings while she looks for work. She ends up taking a summer-only job coaching a make-shift swim team with inexperienced swimmers. Although temporary, it will keep her going through the summer while she looks for other opportunities to support herself and pay for her treatments. Suzie meets Matt, the Park and Recreation Director and her new boss. When more than a work relationship begins to develop, Suzie feels she must tell Matt about her illness. Will he stand by her or walk away? Is telling him a risk that Suzie is willing to take?

Gail Pallotta introduces us to a world with options when it comes to taking care of our bodies. She speaks with authority on the subject because she understands it first hand. Gail Pallotta's characters are real and convincing because they come from a place of understanding. Gail's love story is fragile and tender, but with an inner strength that comes from trust and faith in God. Gail Pallotta's story is inspiring and resonates with hope when all hope seems to be gone. A lovely story with well defined and well developed characters, and a story line with factual information that will help, or at least educate, readers.”
