Interview with D.N. Giles

The Sharp Edge of a Knife (Volume 1)Today I have a guest! I'm interviewing D.N. Giles AKA Nichole Giles about her new book--a fabulous historical fiction, The Sharp Edge of  a Knife.

I reviewed this book also. Click here to read my impression. Nichole is a fantastic writer!

Nichole has a wonderful giveaway going on right now--click here to enter to win some of the great prizes!



  1. Tell us a little about yourself including something you haven’t shared with any other blogger.  
Wow, um. Hm. How about I'm hoping to live on a tropical island someday. 
 
2.How long did it take you to write the book?Approximately three years, give or take lots of time working on other projects.  
 
3. What books or authors have most influenced your writing?Every book I read has some influence.The authors have the influence through their books, and through their words. To pick just one or a few books or authors who have helped shape me would be fairly impossible, because I take something away from everything I read. And I read a lot.

4. What is your favorite part of the writing process?  Discovering storylines I didn't know were there, and characters who I didn't know existed.

5.Your least favorite? Staring at the blank page and trying to force myself to put words there when none will come willingly.

6. Do you have any advice for other authors? Yes, never give up. Persistence pays off.

7. Where can we find your books? You can find Mormon Mishaps and Mischief everywhere LDS books are sold, and The Sharp Edge of a Knife is currently available on Amazon, and should be in most stores very soon.
Mormon Mishaps and Mischief: Hilarious Stories for SaintsThanks so much for stopping by today, Nichole. It was fun to learn more about you and I wish you lots of success!

Scattered Seeds

By Rachelle J. Christensen

Be still, my soul: The Lord is on thy side;
In ev’ry change he faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: Thy best, thy heav’nly Friend
Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end. (Hymn 124, Be Still My Soul.)

I stood on my tiptoes to hang my bird feeder on an upper branch of the apple tree. The mesh bag hung six feet from the ground and I noticed my furry tortoiseshell cat watching me expectantly. “That should be high enough to keep them safe,” I said.

I loved feeding the birds, but recently my cat was showing up with feathers in her mouth. I had seen her climb into the apple tree and try to reach the birds from an upper branch. I also noticed her sitting below the bird feeder patiently; tail swishing, waiting for a bird to fly a bit too low. I adjusted the bag of thistle seeds higher and returned to the house.

Later, I sat at the dinner table with my family and watched the birds fluttering around the apple tree. The tiny goldfinches with yellow, black, and sometimes coral-colored markings hung on the feeder and extracted the small, black thistle seeds from the tiny holes in the mesh bag.

Then I saw something which explained the feathers in my cat’s mouth. At times, the bag of thistle seed was crowded with six or seven finches grasping onto the mesh and digging for seeds. The birds would chatter and fight for a place near the coveted seeds. As the mesh bag was jostled to and fro by the other birds, small amounts of seed fell to the ground. Rather than wait for an opportunity to get the thistle seeds from the bag, a few birds took an easier and, ultimately, deadly path to get their food. These finches swooped below the bag and landed on the frozen crust of snow where thousands of thistle hulls made black specks against the white snow.

The birds had to work quickly to distinguish the few seeds among the hulls scattered on the snow. As they pecked at the seeds, a dark shape crept closer. My cat moved slowly and then jumped suddenly. The birds flew in every direction—one of them barely missing her sharp claws.

I realized it wouldn’t matter how high I hung the bird feeder, I wouldn’t be able to protect the birds. As long as the finches chose to land on the ground to hunt for seeds, my cat would inevitably show up with feathers in her mouth.



Our lives can be compared to the birds and the bag of thistle seeds. We are often faced with difficult challenges and choices. Keeping on the strait and narrow path requires us to make sacrifices and at times we must choose the thorny way filled with obstacles because it leads to righteousness—even when the smooth path, cleared of obstacles seems to run right alongside us. If we could see where each path leads, we would notice the smooth path ever slightly falling away from the iron rod, slowly leading us into the darkness of Satan’s grasp.

We are often tempted by delicious seeds strewn along the path and may wonder why it is wrong to pick them up, rather than climb the tree to reach the seeds high above ground. In1 Nephi 8:22-24, Lehi explained the difficulties of staying on the path.

“And I saw numberless concourses of people, many of whom were pressing forward, that they might obtain the path which led unto the tree by which I stood. And it came to pass that they did come forth, and commence in the path which led to the tree. And it came to pass that there arose a mist of darkness; yea, even an exceedingly great mist of darkness, insomuch that they who had commenced in the path did lose their way, that they wandered off and were lost. And it came to pass that I beheld others pressing forward, and they came forth and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron; and they did press forward through the mist of darkness, clinging to the rod of iron, even until they did come forth and partake of the fruit of the tree.”
Although it required more effort, time, and energy the birds that clung to the mesh bag and carefully ate the seeds from the source were safe. The only danger to the goldfinches occurred when they ignored the dangers and landed on the ground to retrieve their seeds. In the case of the thistle seeds, the danger—my hungry cat—was within sight. These birds knew she was near, but still chose to fly low.

Robert D. Hales cautioned:
“He does lie at our door, as the scriptures say, and he follows us each day. Every time we go out, every decision we make, we are either choosing to move in his direction or in the direction of our Savior. …We have been given agency, we have been given the blessings of the priesthood, and we have been given the Light of Christ and the Holy Ghost for a reason.

“ …Are we following on the strait and narrow path that leads to God and eternal life? Are we holding onto the iron rod, or are we going another way? I testify that how we choose to feel and think and act every day is the way we get on the path, and stay on it, until we reach our eternal destination.
“Choose to accept—truly accept—that you are a child of God, that He loves you, and that He has the power to help you.” (Robert D. Hales, “To Act for Ourselves: The Gift and Blessings of Agency,” Ensign, May 2006, 4–8)

“Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness,” (Alma 41:10) and the easy way often leads to temptation. We must work hard to rise above the evil influences of the world. I’m thankful of the reminder I have daily when I watch the birds in my backyard. Each day brings new struggles, some choices are big and others are small, but I know that if I keep each step on the strait and narrow I will someday see my Savior’s face and taste of the good fruit.

Blank Pages


Today I wanted to include a guest post that was featured on Christine Bryant's Friendly Friday. Hope you enjoy it!




As I stared at the blank page on my Word document trying to think what to blog about for my guest post, I thought of something. No, it wasn’t how many loads of laundry I needed to do, or what I should fix for dinner, or that I really need some stronger air freshener for my baby’s latest diaper…

I thought about life and why I love to write—why I need to write.
When I’m in the first stages of writing a new novel, a blank page can be frightening. I want to get it right. I want to develop my characters so that they sing from the pages. I want to write the next best-seller. So it’s a little frightening, but it can also be exciting. The anticipation of how words will fill that blank page and become part of a story, how one sentence might change the whole direction of the story—the power of one word—all these things can make writing quite exciting once you’ve put those first words on the page.

Maybe it’s the writer in me or maybe some of my synapses are just pointing in a different direction, but I feel like so much of my life is like the writing process. Life is much like a blank page. Each day I wake up with a list of things that need doing and I try to plan for life, but it always surprises me.

I think that’s why I like writing, because to me, it feels like a natural extension of life. It’s how I communicate with life. All of those thoughts buzzing through my mind can at times feel overwhelming, but when I’m writing a novel I can pull in stray thoughts from the far reaches of my brain and tie them together with the nagging worries hovering on my cortex and create a story. A story where I can escape the wave of notions going on in my head and organize my thoughts into a novel.

And when I’m finished writing—or more likely when I get interrupted—I’ll go and change that diaper, change that load of laundry, start preparing dinner, and all the while I’ll be smiling, thinking about the conversations my characters are having in my head. My fingers will itch to write down the words bouncing around in my brain and I’ll fill up those blank pages.

I’ll make some mistakes and I’ll have to rewrite, but that’s life—it really is. Every day I make mistakes, but that doesn’t keep me from trying to be the best wife and mother I can. It won’t stop me from trying to show my children every day how much I love them and that I love them enough to try and fix my mistakes and become a better person.
Character flaws are what make a story interesting, but in real life I wish I could be rid of them. So I’ll keep writing, filling up those blank pages, and living, hoping for the day when I can write that perfect page.

The Sharp Edge of a Knife Review

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to review a new book today! The Sharp Edge of a Knife by D.N. Giles is an incredible piece of historical fiction. It is based on a true story and here's the blurb from the book--

Most people would have panicked, sitting bound and gagged on a boulder in the middle of the desert as I was, but for some reason, I didn't. A strange kind of reassurance washed over me from somewhere deep within. Whether it was peace that I'd go quickly, or comfort that I was being protected, I wasn't sure. When Mel Petersen leaves for work on the morning of February 7, he has no idea what awaits him. A few miles from his house, Mel picks up a pair of young men who appear to be college students, hoping to prevent them from having to walk in the cold. What Mel doesn't know is that the men are actually convicts on the run from the law who are desperate to get away by any means necessary. When one of his passengers holds a knife to Mel's throat, he has no choice but to submit to the demands of the criminals. Mel hopes he has what it takes to talk his captors into letting him live so he can return to his wife and children, but fears they will kill him before he has the chance. Based on a true story, The Sharp Edge of a Knife follows Mel and his captors on an unforgettable ride that will have you questioning the depth of your faith and sitting on the edge of your seat as it grabs your attention from the first sentence and keeps you riveted until the very end.


This book has something for everyone--suspense, inspiration, adventure, history, and an amazing look into the importance of family. I've enjoyed reading this story more than once and each time was touched by the range of emotions that Mel Peterson experienced during the scariest time of his life.


From the first page, I was pulled into this true account of unbelievable courage and faith. Nichole Giles has crafted an incredible story based on Mel Peterson’s harrowing kidnap and life-threatening events in such a compelling style, there was no escape until I reached the satisfying ending.

Pick up a copy of this book and get ready for an exciting read!

Kreativ Blogger Award


Thank you to Kitty at LiquidAmbarStudio for giving me this award!
You should check out her blog and amazing artwork, she is definitely creative--Wow!

The recipient of this award is challenged to list 7 things about them that readers may not know and then pass the Kreative Blogger award on to 7 other blogs the person enjoys reading.

1. One of my jobs after college was to work as a treadmill tester. Yes, I got paid to run/walk on the treadmill. The shifts were four-hours long.

2. I've always wanted to learn how to paint with oils. I've learned a teeny, tiny bit about watercolor painting and think it's so neat!

3. I like houseplants and I'm pretty good at keeping them alive. The oldest one I have right now is 12 years old.

4. I like to take 20 minute power naps in the afternoon when the stars align just right (that means when my kids are sleeping/occupied).

5. I went to England on a study abroad program with BYU the summer before I got married and loved it so much--I want to go back someday!

6. I have vivid dreams in color and dreaming has always been a topic that interests me. I wrote my term paper on Dreams in college.

7. One summer, my brother and I had a job to hack down Bull Thistles (I don't know what variety of thistle they actually are, that's what we called them) with machetes on a farm--they are a noxious weed and by law have to be removed. Some of them were six-eight feet tall with thorns that could slice right through your skin.

And to pass on to 7 other Kreativ blogs:
Some of my blogger buddies have had this award recently, so I'll try to think of a few that might not have--or at least I didn't get to read the post. :)
1.Christine Bryant
2. Annette Lyon
3. Connie Hall
4.Jenn Wilks
5. Kim at Crafty Makes
6. Ashley at Make It and Love It
7. Homemade by Jill

*Okay, stay tuned because Friday March 5th I'm kicking off the biggest Rock Your Blog World Contest you've seen in a while featuring yours truly---Rachelle J. Christensen's novel Wrong Number--and a HUGE prize that you'll be drooling over!!
