Riding the Wave

I just got another great endorsement in!

“The passion and intrigue of the American Revolution comes to life in J. M. Hochstetler’s wonderfully entertaining read Wind of the Spirit. Beautifully written and completely engaging, Wind of the Spirit will appeal to fans not just of Christian fiction, but of historical fiction as well. Not to be missed!”

—Michelle Moran, national bestselling author of The Heretic Queen

I’m totally flattered that Michelle agreed to take time out of her busy schedule to read and endorse one of my books! I’ll tell you, that feels pretty good, especially at those times when I feel like I have to be the worst writer in the whole world. LOL! From talking to other authors, I know this isn’t unusual, so whenever those dark thoughts weigh me down, I can look at these very kind words and remind myself that I’m not doing so badly after all.


  1. Fantastic endorsement from a very talented author. I interviewed Michelle for Stepping Stones Magazine for Writers a few months ago.

    My prayers are with you on this novel, Joan. You are extremely talented and overlooked. Perhaps if all goes well with another novel, you will get the recognition you deserve.

  2. Thank you, Rita! Your encouragement means to much to me!
