Special Guest D. A. FEATHERLING

Special Guest D.A. FEATHERLING

                            By Nancy Jill Thames

How lovely to make a new friend, especially when she is an answer to prayer. God works in amazing ways to provide. In this case, I was subconsciously searching for a way to join American Christian Fiction Writers, and the Lord put Dorothy right in my path. He never ceases to amaze me! Dorothy attended a meeting where I was a guest speaker, and I was taken with her immediately. This gracious lady sent me information about ACFW and offered to take me to the local chapter meeting. I, in turn, offered to feature her on today's post. Please help me welcome D. A. Featherling!


D. A. Featherling is a prolific author who writes in several genres. Her first novel, “It Adds Up to Murder” was published in March, 2013. Her years in business as an administrator for corporations, state agencies, and a university physics research center make her a perfect candidate to write about the lives and loves of everyday people. 

She has also written non-fiction and technical pieces for a number of years as well. Her advertising, public relations, and marketing skills lend themselves to the promotion of her fiction, and her awards for journalism, fiction writing, and public speaking attest to her ability.

D. A. was co-founder of the CenTex Chapter of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and served as its president for several years. She also coordinated the first ever national ACFW Conference in St. Louis, Missouri in 2001 where a then budding author named Karen Kingsbury was the keynote speaker.

She lives in Georgetown, Texas, a small town with a big heart, perfect for imagining all sorts of delightful mayhem among the citizenry.

D. A. (Dorothy) Featherling offers her debut mystery novel “It Adds Up to Murder” for mystery fans of both genders.  The book is the first book in a series, “It’s Murder at the Office.” The series will feature Abigail Newhouse, a temporary worker, as its protagonist. As Abby changes jobs, Homicide Lieutenant Nick Vaughn finds that murder is sure to follow. Each of the books in the series will feature either an office machine or an office procedure as the means of/reason for the murder.

Abigail Newhouse is forced to work temporary jobs to make ends meet.  She discovers that while the jobs can be murderous, there aren’t usually any dead bodies involved.

Abby isn’t expecting crime at her first long term assignment, but when it occurs, she wants to help. Will Homicide Lieutenant Nick Vaughn believe that – or is she his main suspect?

Abby soon finds sleuthing has placed her in deadly peril when she finally confronts a merciless killer face-to-face.

Carrying out her theme of writing in multiple genres, D. A. published her second novel, a romantic comedy, in April. It’s titled “Sauce for the Goose.”

The girl has got to go!

To save her son from a romantic mistake, Laurel Edmonds renews some former relationships of her own. Complications abound when new beau Mike Hudson is added to the mix.

Her romantic dilemmas, her plot to save her son, and worries about her mother, aka The Bus Queen, force Laurel to cope with a fake engagement gone real, a surprise wedding, and a confession she never imagined she’d have to make.
