Acknowledgements A6


Hoo boy! When I tried to jam the lives of Elijah and Obadiah into one story, the writers who critiqued my chapters complained.

“Another new character?”

“Where’s this story going?”

“Who’s it about?”

From somewhere I heard, “Get Elijah’s story tied up. Then write about Obadiah.”


Those wonderful writers continued to help me clear up inconsistencies, misspellings, or crazy punctuation.I thank them!

Plus, thanks to my archaeologist cousin, Stephen Abbott, who shared his research on Middle East timelines, battles, and 850 BC military practices.

Thanks again to my stepson, Ron Harris, who made the cover for the Elijah book and this one.

Since I write for the fun of seeing the story develop and then sharing with my friends and family, I never thought I’d hire an editor. Then Colleen Snyder mentioned how much she appreciated working with Joan Alley. I exchanged emails with Joan and hired her to edit this book. Colleen is right. It’s a joy working with Joan.
