photographerHere at Faith Driven Fiction, we’ve begun following the exploits of newly assigned executive, Mercy Lacewell. She’s been traveling for the last several months, and we’ve been able to compile an itinerary despite a number of confusing and challenging side trips.

Her first stop took her to South Texas. 


Because of a freak winter storm, our crack investigative group lost Ms. Lacewell along I45 somewhere between Houston and Austin. Our team was, however, able to get a glimpse of some of her notes from this trip.

Because of the printed menu from Babe’s Barbecue, along with the restaurant’s initials on one of her file folders, we believe this was her intended destination. As mentioned, we have no confirmation that she arrived.

Nor have we identified Consuela. No one by that name or by the name of Samuel works at the Austin restaurant.

Furthermore, while Babe’s has a delicious, spicy barbecue sauce, they do not serve salsa. Could she possibly have meant cole slaw?

At least, we have easily identified the drawing she did on her menu. Dustin Rogers is another of Lacewell Limited’s acquisition associates. Likely, Ms. Lacewell was paired with Mr. Rogers for this, her initial journey.

She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.
