Longwood, FL (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
Tabitha has a big problem; she is downright awful sometimes and, to top it all off, she is a bully to her friends, Heather and Jessie. But one day as the trio are playing at Blue Mountain Park, a loud crash of thunder and a brilliant bright light heralds the arrival of an angel named Tula-Mae, who soon transports Tabitha to the amazing and spectacular kingdom of Droves Cove. Filled with a plethora of exciting creatures, characters, and Christian life lessons, author Adria ThompsonÕs debut novel, Droves Cove: Terrible Tabitha ($9.99, paperback, 978-1-60477-653-9), is a must-read that is guaranteed to put a smile on readers' faces.
Says Thompson, "I hope children will connect with my characters and relate to them in a way that will encourage a most positive and significant difference in their personal actions, choices, behaviors, and-most importantly-their relationship with Jesus Christ. My desire is not to change the world, just a little corner of it, and to leave a little something good behind."
Born and raised in a rural community in Ohio, Thompson was inspired with the idea to write the Droves Cove series of books in late 2003. It was another few years before her dream finally came to fruition. Now Thompson hopes to achieve another goal with her stories-to ignite the imaginations of children and draw them to an understanding that reading can be exciting and fun.
Adria Thompson currently resides with her husband in Nashville, Tennessee.
