Each Sunday “Inspired by Life…and Fiction” shares a Christian novelist’s newest book and the garden spots where they find inspiration.
NLB Horton returned to writing fiction after an award-winning career in journalism and marketing. From her home in the Rocky Mountains, she writes, cross-country skis, gardens and researches ideas for her next novel. Gardening at 8500 feet is an exercise in tough love, says Horton. “Summer is short, water is scarce, and hungry critters abound. I make the most of God’s creation in this incredibly beautiful spot with an irrigated berm surrounded by xeriscape wildflower meadows. The property is glorious in July, August, and September, when fawns are weaned, and looking for greener pastures—which they inevitably find in my yard.” Horton’s first novel in the Parched series, When Camels Fly, released in May 2014.

Deborah Raney’s first novel, A Vow to Cherish, inspired the World Wide Pictures film of the same title. Twenty years later, she still loves the writing life almost as much as she loves being wife to Ken, mom to four, and “Mimi” to seven. Deb and her husband recently traded small-town life in Kansas for life in the city of Wichita.
