Author Biography

As a sibling writing team we bring the strength of a living sisterhood to our work, as well as the spice of differing perspectives on everything from Type-A tendencies (Sophie) to downshifting on curves (Sadie).
Our father became a pastor of small rural churches when we were halfway through our childhood, so we know both sides of the PK issue--a unique position which translates into an ability to connect with all ages and personalities. Through years of Bible study, interaction and teaching of youth, seniors, and women's groups, we identify with our audience because we're one of them.
Our pastor (our dad) died suddenly in 2008, teaching us the value of time, the preciousness of senior friends, and the power of a graceful Christian example. Since his passing, we've been on a steep learning curve in the church, our writing, and our life as adult children that centers around prayer and the challenge of Philippians 4:11-13.
We've got rural roots that go deep, which gives our writing a clear friend-to-friend, down-to-earth style. In addition to freelance writing we run a small farm in Maine's Unorganized Territory. We bring Jane-of-all-trades life experiences to our work, and believe God's given us this background to write squarely to the heart of real women who don't always wear a size 2, and who prefer boots to high heels.

"Arrow That Flies" by Sadie and Sophie Cuffe is the first book in their 'Blood Brothers in Christ' series and I have to say it is an excellent start to what I feel will be a great Christian mystery series. Someone has kidnapped Rand Adams and now his twin brother Robbie is getting messages from the kidnapper, sent on the tip of an arrow. As with any twins, Robbie feels Rand is still alive as he does not feel a loss in his inner being. This sets the stage for an engrossing plot. Jackie Duncan has come to Stellar’s Ford for two reasons, as one of the new Park Rangers and also to keep an eye on Rand Adams. The FBI was looking into a couple of murders that they thought he might be involved in. But he was also one who led protests for a number of things, mainly here in Stellar's Ford to stop the loggers from cutting down trees. What Jackie was not expecting was a twin brother. Not knowing about the kidnapping she just assumed that Robbie was Rand but the more she learned the more she leaned towards it being Robbie. As the tension grows between the loggers and the protesters, the mystery deepens. Who is the kidnapper? Who is this strange teenager who claims Rand is her father? When they finally discover who is at the forefront of all the happenings will it be too late for the twin brothers and Jackie?

"Arrow That Flies" is a novel that is so very hard to put down, from the beginning with the Prologue right to the very end. The characters seemed very real and I really like Jackie but then there is Amanda, one of those persons you just love to hate. The book was very well-written, the plot is well-thought out and the authors keep one guessing to the end. There are several characters throughout the book who could be the instigator to what is all going on and I thought that there were more involved together. Although being Christian based, it is not preachy. It shows how one can keep one's faith in the face of adversity. So, those who are looking for a good clean mystery can grab a copy of "Arrow That Flies". Recommended for all ages.
