  2. Dani,

    I just finished “Submerged” in two days!!!! What a page turner, my house has gone to pot, couldn’t put your book down, had to keep reading. I am looking for any other of your books, cannot locate any. Could you e-mail some titles to me?

    You are truly blessed with a wonderful gift. Please continue writing. I thoroughly enjoyed your book.

    God Bless,

    • Fran Harvey » Hi Fran,
      Thanks so much for your message. I’m thrilled you enjoyed Submerged. It’s my debut novel. My second release–Shattered–will be available in February. It’s Piper McKenna’s story. Hope you’ll enjoy it just as much :)

  3. My family and I just returned from a mission trip in Anchorage, Alaska, and now I’m on the hunt for a good book set in this incredible state. Looks like a trip to Lifeway is in order! Based on the other posts, I better get my house cleaned up first!

    p.s. thank you for making the town come alive with your description. I googled Sikta and will now feel more at home!

  7. Dani,

    I loved Submerged! I drive just about 100 miles round trip each day to work. I’ve down loaded all four books. I can’t wait to start listening to the next book. Listening makes my drive seem much shorter. Awesome writing, thank you and God Bless.

  8. I was wondering if Yancey Alaska is a real town or just a made up town. I set my mind to moving to Alaska and Yancey sounds like it would be wonderful to live there if it’s real. I got the idea from reading your books and I can’t stop reading them. I’m on the second book now. I have the first four books, so I’m excited to finish the series.

    • Hi Caitlin,
      Yancey is a fictional town. It’s a combination of Sitka and Kodiak. I’ve heard wonderful things about both. How exciting to be moving to Alaska. I wish you the very best. Thrilled you’re enjoying the Alaskan Courage series.

  9. Love the series that starts with Submerged. Have just finished the latest book and waiting on the next one, that will be centered around Reef, I think. My last name is Yancey. Live in Corinth, MS. I wish Yancey Alaska really did exist. Makes me want to hopefully visit Alaska one day. God Bless!

  10. Dani,
    Just finished Submerged and Shattered. I loved them. I’m hooked on your Alaskan Courage Series. Keen them coming. I’ve already purchased Stranded and can’t wait to have it read so I can go onto the next book. Your presentation of the Gospel is wonderful and refreshing. Think of all the seeds your planting. May God bless you and your family!

  11. Hi Dani
    My name is Zane Izeboud and I live in South Africa. I just finished your Alaskan Courage series and loved it. My mom bought me my first last year for my birth day, but starting with Silenced was a total spoiler for myself. No doubt I LOVED it. It’s my favourit book ever, (and I read a lot!) After reading Silenced, I couldn’t not read the others. But we don’t receive many books from overseas where I live, so I used the little internet we have to buy them on e books. I finished book 1 to 3 in one week on my December vacation and just couldn’t wait for book 5! After my birth day this year (16 July) my mom took me to town to buy Sabotaged and once again… Amazing! I just have one question tough.
    What happened to Belinda?
    Anyway, I love you, Dee Henderson and Irene Hannon and hope to one day be as good a writer you.
    I can’t wait for the next book and every one after that.
    Thanks for inspiring me everyday.

  12. Let me start off by saying that I am not a reader. I don’t really enjoy reading and I happened to pick up your book at Lifeway and I FELL IN LOVE!! I am on the fourth book and I can’t stop reading. I am addicted. It would be amazing if you could turn these books into movies! I am really sad knowing that I only have one more book to go and then the series are done so I might just have to go back and re-read them!! I love your books and can’t wait to see more of your work!
