In Xulon author Beatrice E. Toppins' first release, Tammy and the Pharmacist, readers were introduced to a crop of young characters who found the one person to turn their lives around completely and work miracles in their lives--Jesus. In the book's newly released sequel, La Hacienda El Rancho (paperback), the author picks up where she left off, detailing the building of a ranch for homeless children. She hopes readers will ultimately be moved to build such a facility where children can find love, comfort, and daily care--as well as a place where they may come to know Jesus as a close friend.
Says Toppins, "[I hope] young readers may be moved to find such a Savior for themselves and that adults will find a reason for living so they can sing, as the old song says, 'That my living may not be in vain.'"
With several more books already in the works, all of them God-inspired, the 93-year-old Toppins is keeping busy on several projects. After debuting a poem in a publication called The Gospel Trumpet, she was encouraged to try her hand at prose. "Not knowing what prose was, I never answered," the author recalled. She soon learned what prose was through the leading of Christ, who impressed on her to publish a book that spoke to the lost, unloved, and unwanted people of the world.
Beatrice E. Toppins was born in Napoleon, Ohio, on October 31, 1914. She currently resides in Port Charlotte, Florida.
