The first book I wrote, shared, edited, revised, and then published is Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. Although this is my first book, it isn't the first one released to you, my readers. My parents celebrated their forty-second wedding anniversary on January 30, 2013. Nineteen years ago, my husband, Ed, and I gifted them a surprise anniversary party with friends they hadn't seen in decades. It was their first anniversary celebrated without Heidi, so a party was the only way I could think to keep the day semi-joyful. It was a success.
This year, I wanted to do something special for them again. We ALL eagerly await April 3, 2013. It will be a bittersweet day this year, nineteen years without Heidi, yet a book sharing Heidi and her kidnapping from a sister's viewpoint, my viewpoint will release. Instead of searching for Heidi this year, may we search for the One who gives us Hope, Healing, and an extraordinary strength to survive and thrive after loss.
While Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey isn't my first released book, it will forever be my first written and dedicated book...to my sister...forever in our hearts...Heidi M. Allen. If you are interested in reading When the Waves Subside - There is Hope, it is available on Amazon.com - there is a direct link if you click on the cover. As always, thank you for your continued prayers, support, encouragement, and love.
Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey is still first...
What does T.O.P.'s Tuesday Stand for?
Our Tuesday blogs are titled, T.0.P.'s Tuesday and will provide you with information relating to the release of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. It might be an upcoming speaking engagement, the cover, an excerpt, or bizarre tidbits about the publishing process you may not be aware of.
Why is it called T.O.P.'s Tuesday? Great question! Heidi played volleyball for the Bishop Cunningham Jr./Sr. High School until it closed in 1992. On February 14th, 1992 the Palladium Times (an Oswego, New York newspaper) named my sister, Heidi M. Allen athlete of the week. This was exciting and we were all proud of her but it was the name they gave her that stirred the most attention, "Tower of Power".
