Ellie’s WORDS on WORDS. My Guest Today is Lori Rogers ~ My Daughter.




(Note: This week’s blog was written by my daughter, Lori Rogers, who shares my love of books and reading.)

Books have always been a part of my life. I almost always have at least one book with me everywhere I go and now, thanks to the e-readers, I can take a whole library with me. I may be alone but I never feel lonely when I am reading. I love stories, being caught up within them, wondering if I can guess how they will end or even what happens next, and even rewriting my favorite parts in my head to see if that changes the experience.

If I am somewhere that I can’t read (for safety or PC reasons) I ‘write’ my own stories or revisit in memory books I’ve already read. Books make up some of my earliest and longest friendships. I don’t mind reading a favorite book two, three, or even four times. Perhaps the friendship is actually with the author; I eagerly jump into a new book by a favorite author.

Product Details

The book is new but the author’s thoughts and take on life are familiar. Like my mother’s new book titled; Finding Faith”  In this sense reading is actually sharing someone else’s thoughts and ideas, traveling with them to a new dimension and a deeper friendship. I don’t mind traveling back from that dimension because I can always slip back into it just by picking up the book again. Really!

Now excuse me, I hear her book calling ME.

Thanks All!  ~ Lori Rogers

New WORDS on WORDS . . .




My second novel, Finding Faith, is now with the publisher and will be released soon. It is the story of three women at different stages of life, all struggling to overcome unexpected events that have profoundly changed their lives. They are thrown together by chance and reject each other through fear and anger.

An elderly man, blind from his teen years, becomes a link between the three. He ‘sees’ more than any of them do and tries to help them understand that they can each do better if they join forces instead of pushing the others away but his counsel is rejected by each one of them.

Mae, Mira, and Carla struggle with the idea that family is about so much more than blood relationship. A death, a kidnapping, a divorce, and a legal dilemma all contribute to their rejection of each other and their resistance to accepting help from each other. But these events also become the catalyst for forging a tentative family.



Finding Faith will be available through Amazon both as a paperback and as an e-book. I’ll be sure to announce its release through this blog, as soon as it’s available.
My good friend Catherine Lyon of Lyon Book & Social Media Promotions will also be announcing some fun promotional things to, so keep watching!

Until Next Time Writers and Readers!
