New Release--Brady Street Boys Book 7

Perils of the Produce Patch

A boy hoping to relax.

Will his discouragement blind him to the lessons God is teaching?

Gary Fitzpatrick is exhausted. After traveling across the country in a fruitless search for the surgeon who amputated his leg, the sensitive thirteen-year-old and his brothers just want rest. But they’re barely through the door at home when he learns their mom is busy caring for an abandoned baby and needs them to manage the community garden.

Further frustrated when their $500 prize money goes missing, the weary boy is mildly relieved after they get permission to sell their own goods in addition to the produce at market. But when they discover running a business isn’t as easy as it looks and an accident gets them kicked out in disgrace, Gary struggles to follow his father’s advice and focus on faith.

As the weeds of trouble grow wild, can he stifle his anger to remain strong and obedient?

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 cleaned 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.
