OPPOSITES CAN BE A PERFECT FIT

Jodi ThomasWhen I began the Ransom Canyon series, I knew SUNRISE CROSSING would be Yancy’s story. So when I started writing, he was already whispering his story in my ear.

Yancy Grey was little more than a kid when he went to prison for a robbery and five years later, when he’s free, he heads to a little town called Crossroads, Texas.  He thinks he is worthless, but is taken in by a group of senior citizens and slowly finds his roots in town.  SUNRISE CROSSING opens with him beginning work on an old house called the Gypsy House where he was born.

Yancy works alone every night restoring the place where he was born.  When he hears a noise in the attic, he discovers a woman hiding there.  He calls Tori Vilanie Rabbit because that’s what he thought was in the attic.  She’s running from life and he’s afraid to step into living, but somehow they build a gentle kind of friendship that grows into love.

In SUNRISE CROSSING Yancy Grey restored an old memory of a farmhouse from my past with the help of a woman he found hiding in the barn. As the house came together so did a sweet love story of two people who’d always been alone.

SUNRISE CROSSING will pull you into the lives of characters that you’ll remember long after you’ve finished the story.

Jodi Thomas

A fifth-generation Texan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jodi Thomas chooses to set the majority of her novels in her home state, where her grandmother was born in a covered wagon. A former teacher, Thomas traces the beginning of her storytelling career to the days when her twin sisters were young and impressionable. With a degree in family studies, Thomas is a marriage and family counselor by education, a background that enables her to write about family dynamics. Honored in 2002 as a Distinguished Alumni by Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Thomas enjoys interacting with students on the West Texas A&M University campus, where she currently serves as Writer in Residence. Commenting on her contribution to the arts, Thomas said, "When I was teaching classes full-time, I thought I was making the world a better place. Now I think of a teacher or nurse or mother settling back and relaxing with one of my books. I want to take her away on an adventure that will entertain her. Maybe, in a small way, I'm still making the world a better place." When not working on a novel or inspiring students to pursue a writing career, Thomas enjoys traveling with her husband, renovating a historic home they bought in Amarillo and "checking up" on their two grown sons.
