Best Selling Author Patti Callahan Henry Endorses my novel, Uriel's Mask

I'm beyond thrilled and honored that The New York Times best selling author, Patti Callahan Henry, has

endorsed my novel Uriel's Mask. Patti has penned more than 18 novels, including the recently released The Secret Book of Flora Lea and one of my favorites, Surviving Savannah.

I'm so grateful — especially as I know how insanely busy she is right now while on a whirlwind book tour — to take the time to write this kind endorsement and send to me:

"Sometimes you find a novel that reminds you of the timeless power of art and music, a compelling novel that you find yourself both immersed in and captivated by. This is one of those! Haunting and beautiful, Laura Roe has found her voice in this unique work that sends a clear message: love, music and art can carry us home." ~ Patti Callahan Henry.

Patti, a fellow southern and historical writer, has championed my novel since the early days (2015) when I was still wrestling with its structure and lead characters. It is now being reviewed by publishing house editors, and I hope it finds its perfect home soon.

If you do not know of Patti's writing, please take the time to visit her site and learn about her. I adore her books and love how she has stretched from southern tales to historical love stories, including Becoming Mrs. Lewis — C.S. Lewis' love story. Her writing, stories, and characters hit that sweet spot authors strive for, but rarely achieve: the ability to craft timeless, yet current stories, with characters rooted in place, time, and cultural traditions, yet are completely relatable and beloved by everyone. BUY one of her novels. You won't regret it. :)

Thank you again Patti. Your support means the world.
