New Release--Brady Street Boys Book 4

Tricked on the Tracks

When Dean promises to help search the Hobo Jungle for clues, Gary and his brothers seem closer than ever to finding the missing surgeon.

But now Dean is missing too. The boys proceed without him, trying to practice longsuffering. With the help of two hobos and a red handkerchief, they begin to untangle the trail left by Dr. Jefferson.

Then, Dean reappears. But relief turns to despair as the boys find themselves in a worse predicament. Will they be accused of kidnapping? Or will they die of thirst? Is it possible to be longsuffering even now?

They’ve almost forgotten about finding Dr. Jefferson. But the red handkerchief has one more clue.

About Katrina

Courage and Cheer for the Christian Race!

I have been creating stories for almost as long as I can remember. Growing up on a Mennonite produce farm, I created brothers Terry, Gary, and Larry, to help pass the time doing chores. I told stories about them to my brother as we weeded strawberries, thinned carrots, or washed fresh eggs.

As a teacher in Christian schools for eight years, I loved reading to my students at storytime. In 2008, I left teaching and went to nursing school.

For about a decade, as I worked as a nurse, I wrote books for adults. With a Mennonite publishing house, I produced From the White House to the Amish, Blue Christmas, and Captain Garrison. I enjoyed traveling, researching, and interviewing for seven books. I also shared my life as a cardiac nurse and member of an inner city Anabaptist church on my weekly blog.

Hospitality in the Raw: Part 3
