ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is DiVoran Lites. I am the author of the Florida Springs Trilogy. All three books: Sacred Spring, Living Spring, and Clear Spring are now available at Kindle and on Amazon in print. Each book has its own complete cast of characters and story, but as you read them, you will find the people are a community of family and friends who have known and loved each other for many years. You will watch conflicts,common to man, played out in the characters' lives. You'll read such vivid descriptions of the fabulous Florida Springs that, according to reviewers, you will feel as if you've visited them yourself.
I'm told that even as a toddler I loved books and carried them around. Reading has been a passion ever since. It didn't take long to discover that the best enhancement for reading was writing. I started writing the story of my life in a back booth in my parents'restaurant in a mountain valley in Colorado. Dad said that since I was only seven years old, it would be a short story. I didn't understand the humor at the time. Since then writing has been my calling, and life and love have been my learning labs.
I am married to Bill, an areonautical engineer. We have two children and two granchildren. The way God works with people, and the creations he has given us to enjoy are my favorite subjects.
This is book three in the The Florida Springs Trilogy series. I enjoyed Elaine Donovan’s story and that of her family. This one is about Mel, Jean’s daughter from book two.
Mel wants to be independent and stays to take a job when her family goes on vacation. She is helping to illustrate a book about botanical herbs, etc.. She is reunited with her childhood friend Scott and makes a new friend Corky. Also during her job her real father comes and wants her to help him with his new money making scheme.
All of this together makes for another wonderful story that ends the series in a fantastic way. You will be amazed at the description of the land and wildlife around this area. The author knows how to tell a story and put you on the edge of your seat. Very good book.
