Justice for Jessie
What would you have done if you’d been driving that morning?
Meg Reynolds is a good neighbor, a congenial co-worker, a loving wife and mother. But the accident on the morning of September ninth tests the very fiber of her moral character.
Unable to face what she has done, Meg hides the truth behind a protective curtain of lies and deceit, frustrating the efforts of Sheriff Tom Braxton and Captain Carl Winchester.
Torn between the urge to protect his wife and his desire to do the “right thing,” Renn Reynolds seeks the comfort of alcohol after eight years of sobriety.
Author Brenda Poulos is best known for developing flawed characters in need of forgiveness and creating plots that keep readers guessing until the very last word. In Justice for Jessie, she delivers her most suspenseful Christian Suspense novel, yet.
Along with Jessie’s parents, Jack and Rachel Carter, you’ll face two impossible-to-answer questions:
Can the unforgivable really be forgiven?
Will there ever be Justice for Jessie?
RUNAWAYS: The Long Journey Home
My first Christian Fiction book, Runaways: The Long Journey Home was based on a recurring dream.
A victim of physical and emotional abuse at the hand of his father, ten-year-old Jake runs away from his remote Appalachian home in the dead of winter. He ventures into unknown territory with only his faithful companion, Hound, beside him.
The pair face freezing temperatures and near starvation as they travel through mountainous terrain, narrowly escaping Father as he tracks them with the very rifle he used to kill Sam and Mama.
Taken in by a kindly older couple, Jake discovers that he isn’t the only runaway. He looks to the clue in Mama’s necklace to reveal his true identity and give him a reason to trust.
When he hears about God’s unconditional love for him, he is confronted with the biggest decision of his life.
Will he run again, or face his father?

The Choice: Will’s Last Testament
I have read several books about near-death experiences. Each time, the person returns to tell of a beautiful experience involving peace, light, and hope. But, if Heaven is real, then what about hell? Has anyone ever been sent there? If so, why hasn’t anyone returned to warn us?
THE CHOICE is a fictional story–based on the TRUTH of the scriptures. In it, I weave together a story about a young couple confronted with the same choice we all face.
What happens next is too terrifying to be believed.
If you have wondered if there is a life beyond death–an eternal existence we can be sure of–then you will be kept up late at night reading The Choice: Will’s Last Testament.
The Choice: Will’s Last Testament is available on iTunes and Audible, in addition to hardcover, paperback, and Kindle formats. You will find it on Amazon or ask for it at the order desk at Barnes and Noble.
Simon Says is my third Christian Fiction book.
Abandoned by his father at birth, tormented by neighborhood bullies, misunderstood by classmates and teachers. Then, at seventeen, things begin to change for Marcus.
A victim of years of rejection due to physical abnormalities and social awkwardness, he finds purpose as the result of an unlikely friendship and faith in God through the power of grace.
But when past disappointments resurface and create roadblocks to his new life, will Marcus find the strength to extend forgiveness to those who mistreat him?
Will he finally experience the love and acceptance that has eluded him for so long?

Truth or Dare
Truth or Dare is the second book in the Simon Says series.
This book continues the story of Marcus, Simon and Sally.
Set four years after the original book, Simon Says, this book centers on Simon’s struggles to accept Christ’s forgiveness. Instead, he believes he is not worthy of God’s love…
Truth or Dare is a childhood game—or is it?
Simon Wilson is a bully. A Thief. An Accomplished liar. But the biggest lie of all is not one he has told. It’s one he believes. It’s the one that says he will never be good enough. He will never measure up. Never be worthy.
He is at a crossroads.
Will Simon continue to be deceived by the lie?
Or will he choose to believe the Truth?
Truth or Dare is available on iTunes and Audible, in addition to hardcover, paperback, and Kindle formats. You will find it on Amazon or ask for it at the order desk at Barnes and Noble.
Tug of War
Ed Wilson grew up in a home ravaged by abuse. It was the only life he knew.
He vowed that his own boys would grow up to be tough. They’d learn how to defend themselves. How to strike fear in the hearts of others.
Just like his father had taught him.
Ed had answers for everything. Except the information he needed most.
What really happened on the day Sammy was killed?
Convinced Sammy’s twin, Simon, was responsible for the tragedy, Ed hardened his heart against his wife, Simon and–most of all–against God. He allowed anger and revenge to rule his life, prompting him to turn to the occult for the key to satisfy his quest.
Thrust into the midst of the battle for his own soul, Ed is faced with the decision to accept God’s unconditional love or continue on the dark path of destruction.
Who will win this tug of war?
The darkness or the Light?
The final book in the Simon Says series. An unexpected conclusion to the beloved four-book collection.
When Mary learns that Simon—the man who kidnapped her last summer, and now dominates her recurring nightmares—is actually her biological father, her world turns upside down.
She is frustrated and fearful, confused about family relationships, unsure about the permanence of friendships.
And it comes out in her behavior at school and at home.
Faced with life’s new reality and an uncertain future, will Mary learn to forgive others, accept responsibility for her own actions, and place her faith in her heavenly Father?
It’s a lot for anyone. But she is only six years old.
