Christian Fiction Friday: February 27th

Welcome to this week’s edition of Christian Fiction Friday brought to you by me and my lovely and talented co-host, Alana Terry! This is a chance for Christian authors to post short snippets from their works in progress! Easy and fun!

Here is my offering for the week, from my current work in progress, Flight of Faith, Part 7 of the Virtues and Valor Series.

v07-faith“We aren’t going to make it!” Helen yelled as she struggled with the controls.

“Just lost the left engine,” her copilot Harold Curtis said, looking beyond Helen to the burning wing. Less than a second later, the entire plane shuddered as another antiaircraft burst exploded right next to them, causing her to rapidly start losing altitude.

“You need to find me a place to set this baby down or else we’re going to be in a heap of trouble,” she managed to say as she stood and used the weight of her body to try to control the yoke. Some part of her brain told that right now she ought to feel absolute terror, but she didn’t have time for that. Maybe later, when this was over, would she take time and react to the fact that she was crash landing into enemy territory, into a country in which she did not speak the language.

Christian Fiction Friday: February 20th

Welcome to this week’s edition of Christian Fiction Friday brought to you by me and my lovely and talented co-host, Alana Terry! This is a chance for Christian authors to post short snippets from their works in progress! Easy and fun!

Here is my offering for the week, from my current work in progress, Flight of Faith, Part 7 of the Virtues and Valor Series.

v07-faithHelen popped the canopy on Diamond and pushed herself out of the cockpit. As her boots landed on the ground, she saw the two men rushing toward her, one of them with a gun drawn from the holster on his belt. She weakly raised her hands. “I have a letter of permission,” she declared before they even came to a stop.

The man in the officer’s uniform looked her up and down, intense green eyes taking in her leather jacket, pants, and boots. He inspected her with a methodical eye for detail, taking in her apparent age, weight, and state of alertness along with her very American accent. He waved a hand at the gun toting man next to him. “Put that away, Erickson.”

The trip here had taken Helen from Texas to New York to Newfoundland to Greenland to Iceland and finally here. The trip had taken seven days. Exhaustion overrode every cell in her body, and Helen didn’t know how much energy she had left from which to pull reserves, especially standing here with her hands in the air. “Let’s have a looksie at your letter, then, shall we?” he demanded.

“I have to get it out of my jacket pocket,” she warned, her voice hoarse with exhaustion. “Don’t let Skippy here get an itchy trigger finger.” The officer simply raised an eyebrow and extended his hand. She retrieved the letter from her inside pocket and handed it over to him.

After he skimmed it, he looked at her again. “This says H. ‘Troy’ Mulberry. You don’t strike me as a Troy.”

She loved his accent. She didn’t think he’d appreciate hearing it at this point, but she honestly thought she could listen to him talk all day. “Well, shucks, Admiral. We just met. Give it some time to grow on ya.”

He didn’t look amused. She lowered her hands and shoved them into her pockets. “Everyone who knows me calls me Troy. Not my fault people assume that means a man.” Helen slumped down onto the wing of her Na-16. “I’ve been flying for half a fortnight. Think I could catch forty winks somewhere, Admiral?”

He looked at Texas Diamond, dusty and dirty, and back at her. “Where did you fly out of, Miss Mulberry?”

Christian Fiction Friday: February 13th

Welcome to this week’s edition of Christian Fiction Friday brought to you by me and my lovely and talented co-host, Alana Terry! This is a chance for Christian authors to post short snippets from their works in progress! Easy and fun!

Here is my offering for the week: five paragraphs from my current work in progress, Flight of Faith, Part 7 of the Virtues and Valor Series.

Suddenly, the antiaircraft fire ceased. No more explosions tried to rock them from the sky.

“Not good,” Harold murmured, looking out the window. “There’s no way this beast can out fly fighters.”

“I’m going to keep climbing. Maybe they won’t see us,” she said quietly. Then, because the plane was filled with intelligent, strong people, she yelled back to the cabin, “This ain’t right. They stopped shooting, but we’re pretty far from the coast.”

Harold added in voice intended to raise above the sound of the engines, “If you can manage, keep a look out the windows, lads and lasses! The only reason they’d stop shooting is if they sent up fighters to bring us down!”

Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a tracer. Twisting in her seat, she looked as far behind the plane as she could and saw a glimpse of something in the moonlight. “Hang on!” she yelled. “They’re coming in low on our six.”

Christian Fiction Friday!

Welcome to the first edition of Christian Fiction Friday brought to you by me and my lovely and talented co-host, Alana Terry! This is a chance for Christian authors to post short snippets from their works in progress! Easy and fun!

Here is my offering for the week: four paragraphs from my current work in progress, Flight of Faith, Part 7 of the Virtues and Valor Series.

Eddie’s voice sounded quiet, so quiet that Helen wondered if she was the only one who heard the slight edge of menace. “That ain’t funny, Troy.”

“I said I’m going. I’m leaving for England. In the morning.”

JoAnn stood. “Don’t be foolish. There’s a war on. The seas aren’t safe. I know you read about the Lusitania!”

“I’m not sailing.” Helen swallowed and lifted her chin. “I’m flying. I’m flying Texas Diamond over and I’m going to volunteer. Just like Eddie did.”
