About The Author
Tammy D Thompson has been writing and telling stories since she was a young child. Perhaps it was inevitable that she would call grappling with words and language a career and with a passion for words since she was a little girl, Tammy started with writing poetry. Her mother would find little writings around the house and put them up for keeps. As the years passed, and she attended college at Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, AR, and her verses changed into fiction, starting with her first book, Buried, But Not Forgotten. As it does, things changed once more, and her books turned into Christian Inspirational books, with the hopes to leave a smile on the reader's face and hope in their hearts. After the Dream Mountain Series and her last book, The Beggar, Mrs. Thompson's goal was to relay a message in every story she wrote. In her most recent title, soon to be out, Geneva's Cross, and the Geneva book series to come, the message is very clear. Throughout many changes in her life, the one constant was always God and his love for her. So, in this latest series, each book is meant to lead and direct the reader in the direction of the light and away from any darkness. "At the end of the day, I want to touch hearts and changes lives," Mrs. Thompson said. "There's nothing more rewarding than knowing you've made a different in even one person's life. And that's my goal as a writer, as a person and as a Christian. One of her favorite scriptures is Mark 11:23 "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." She does everything through her faith and her hope is to convey every ounce of that faith to her readers, praying it is received in the way it is given. Using her gift of words, she wants to change the world, one person at a time. loving every moment.
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
The First book in a series of Christian books, carrying a message we all need...FAITH - HOPE - LOVE and believing in the power of GOD...
Feeling the loss of his beloved Geneva, Elijah struggles with many things. From regrets, anger, resentment, and lingering sadness, he can’t seem to get past the grief eating him up inside. Ella and Caleb, his daughter and son-in-law, step in to try and bring some light into his dark existence. The memories in Elijah’s mind appear so real at times and after a while, he can’t tell the difference between the past and the present. Then, his journey begins. Elijah takes off trying to find Geneva and himself at the same time and a healing begins to take place, a healing starting from the inside out. Somehow, Elijah finds what he needs and what he’s looking for in more ways than one. He finds a treasure of a lifetime and it all started with Geneva’s Cross.
Matthew 16: 24-26
“If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?"
A uniquely southern charm and perspective, Geneva's Cross is going to invite you to join the elderly Elijah James on what is probably the most painful journey of his life through loss, loneliness, regret, and uncertainty. Elijah is normally a bit selfish and cranky, but otherwise likeable and all too familiar. You will find yourself crying with and cheering for Elijah as you wait to see if the encouragement from his family and his newfound reliance on God, will be enough for Elijah to make it on this unpredictable and heart-challenging downturn.

Could Not Put It Down - I absolutely loved the book. I'm not a reader, but bought the book because I know the lady that Geneva's character was written about. I got so captivated into the story, I couldn't put it down. Each chapter I would say, "At the end of this chapter I'm going to bed," but when I would reach the last paragraph, I'd tell myself, "I've got to see what happens next. I read it in two settings, which has never happened before. My husband said he has never seen me read so much. And by the way, there really is a person as spunky as Geneva and she loves her Lord!!! - Judy Farley

I bought this book at her book reveal and could not put it down. I felt like I was traveling right along with Geneva. This is a must read for anyone with no faith, little faith or lots of faith. A story of faith and miracles.
FAMILY VALUES AND THE POWER OF LOVE...
I purchased this book and it set on my bedside table for a week or so. One night I was feeling sad and decided to start the book, hoping it would lift my spirits. As I read and turned each page, the story drew me in deeper and I could feel the emotion of characters. I was sleepy, but could not stop reading. Before I knew it, I was approaching the end of the book and praying for a happy ending to the story. Tammy D. Thompson captured the essence of love and faithfulness in her title and I can’t wait for the next book in her new series!! - TOM GREER
