About the Author:

This whole writer's journey caught me completely by surprise and, to this day, I'm a bit stunned by the ride. Blame it all on prayer. In 2004 I committed to pray every day, right out of the sack, for at least an hour. A year later I woke in the morning from a very cool dream. As the week went on, the dream wouldn't let go. It expanded in my brain until I HAD to start writing or just... explode. That story? One Night With a Rock Star. It's the novel that transformed me into a passionate storyteller. To quote one of my wonderful readers, Rock Star is--what relationship with God looks like in the midst of sexual temptation. Two years later, in the middle of prayer, I asked a question and God answered. I yelped in shock but also had to admit the answer made so many of my faith elephants-in-the-room make sense. For the next month, every morning began with more mind-blowing insights. When I showed the 250 pages of notes to my hubby and an author friend, they both said--This needs to be a novel. The journey of writing THE FALL was much more than writing a novel. It was a pilgrimage that crushed, shaped and changed me; the way I think, the way I pray, the way I love, even the way I view current events. Fast-forward to 2012. My family met Kemper Crabb, amazing missionary and Heavenly Servant. We laughed and cried with him as Kemper told many of his astounding stories of a life committed to the salvation of souls & the alleviation of suffering. He had read The Fall and appreciated how I described the celestial realm, a realm he could see as he brought God's love to places of extreme suffering. Again God's plan involved bringing me outside the comfort zone. Again I held tight to His hand as I dove into a project that humbled me and further challenged me to lay all on the line for God's plan. His Kingdom come. His will be done. To the glory and honor of our Heavenly Father and His faithful servants down through the ages who sacrificed all as bond servants of Christ's love, I gratefully present Servant of the King: Memoir of Modern Apostle Kemper Crabb. BTW, I'm a mom of four, married to the best man alive, have a background in broadcast journalism and, many moons ago, worked as a model and actress. I love old barns, old movies, hot chocolate chip cookies and someday I'd like to sail around the world. Guess I'd better learn to sail first.

Review:

I LOVED the first book, One Night with a Rock Star, was awaiting the sequel, and LOVE it just as much! What girl doesn't fantasize about meeting and falling in love with her rock n roll idol? And, I admire a heroic author who can put forth Christian values and morals we don't see nearly enough of today. I will read every book from this author, and I hope there are many more to come. Thank you, Ms. Keefer, for delivering yet another wonderful story that I'm happy to share with my family and friends. I received an ARC in return for my honest review. --Dana Pratola, Author of the Descended series

I can honestly say I've read hundreds of books, but find myself increasingly frustrated with today's selection. If I read Christian romances, I'm stuck with a sappy tale tied nicely together with a bow. It's unsatisfying. But if I foray into the world of secular romances, I might find a more interesting story, but I'm faced with the possibility of explicit sex and am unsatisfied with the lack of God's hope. What I so appreciate about this book is the blending of both worlds. One Night with a Rock Star was sweet and beautiful. Yet it doesn't shy away from temptation, hard stuff, and the reality of Christians feeling desire too. Sex isn't just a non-Christian thing, but is a gift from God, and that is shown clean and clearly in this book. I was refreshed by the real, interesting, story and, best of all, the new insight into God. Author Chana Keefer has a great way with words, creating vivid imagery. I loved her descriptions of the charming villages of France, or the outfits Esther gets to wear. I really enjoyed seeing the joys and struggles main characters Esther and Sky go though after marriage. So often the books stops after the monumental struggle the characters go through to get to marriage, and then we assume happily ever after. This book fulfills that need for the reader without falling into the same struggles experienced in the first book. It was truly a fresh and unique story. The faith aspect of the story was powerful. It wasn't preached or shoved down your throat, but was used in a way that made sense and felt applicable to my own life. The author had some really unique perspectives on Biblical truths. I'm no expert, so I can't say if she was right or wrong, but I was definitely left with a lot to ponder in a good way. --Amazon Customer

One Night With A Rock Star: Part Deux was well worth the two-year wait. The story continues with that agonizing cliffhanger and it is a roller coaster ride filled with angst, joy, devastation, romance, humor, suspense, mystery, loss and love all woven together with faith and grace and forgiveness and family. Chana Keefer has also woven a fabulous background tapestry with vivid descriptions of the French countryside. In the midst of it all are these wonderful characters, Esther and Sky, who are so well drawn and real. I love it when it is so evident that the author is in love with these people, too. There are so many ups and downs and plot twists and turns and just plain evil working against them that kept me doubting but always hoping for that happily ever after right up to the very end. I honestly didn't know where the author was going to take Esther and Sky when I first began the story and there were lots of surprises along the way, which, to me, is the hallmark of good storytelling. Chana Keefer knows how to tell a story and tell it well. Faith is the victory! That is the message here. Is there a happily ever after for this Christian young woman and her Rock Star? Please read One Night With A Rock Star first. And then read One Night With A Rock Star: Part Deux and find out for yourself. --Kay R. Amazon Customer and ARC reviewer
