The One Hope Nonfiction Winner is ...


I'm very excited to announce the winner of our One Hope Nonfiction contest, because I've "known" this writer's reputation for several years through Faithwriters - she is dedicated, hard-working, and one of the most positive writers I've ever encountered. (She's also warned me about her sense of humor, so it seems she'll be a great fit with the rest of us around here!) I look forward to working with her. 

The winner of our One Hope Nonfiction Contest for 2012 is:

Joanne Sher
for her manuscript
Ailing Body Nourished Soul

Joanne Sher is a Jew by birth, a Christian by rebirth, and a writer by gift. A native Southern Californian, she now lives happily in West Michigan with her husband and two school-aged children.

She is currently working on a biblical fiction set during King Saul's reign and centered around the handmaiden of Saul's youngest daughter Michal.

She is also a regular blogger, not only at her own site, but at the FaithWriters blog. She posts monthly at Jewels of Encouragement, The Barn Door, and Internet Cafe Devotions.

Find her elsewhere on the web:


We'll share more about Joanne's book later in the year.


Don't forget about the 2013 contests:

Books of Joy (win cash prize and publication of a three-book series)
One Joy (cash prize and publication)
Christmas Joy (cash prize and publication)
