Late author achieves lifelong goal with posthumous novel
Kirkdale Press publishes Arizonan professor’s novel, ‘The Church Sign’
BELLINGHAM, Wash., September 6, 2012 — It’s never too late to become a published author. Writer and distinguished professor Dr. Anne Robey-Graham passed away in December 2011, but today, Kirkdale Press is publishing her debut novel, The Church Sign, with great expectations.
When asked what some of her life goals were, Dr. Robey-Graham responded that she “would like to make a difference in people’s lives and leave a lasting legacy.” She’ll achieve that goal with Kirkdale’s release of The Church Sign.
“Anne was a joyful, encouraging woman, and one of my favorite authors to work with,” says Kirkdale Press director Ryan Rotz. “She had 30 years of ministry experience and 20 years in higher education—and was still teaching. She loved to inspire people. Writing a book was just another way of doing that.”
The Church Sign is a story about a woman unable to forgive herself for past mistakes. At pivotal points in her life, she finds herself confronting that past over and over through encounters with strangely personal church signs, which she comes to understand as messages from God.
“The Church Sign reveals [Dr. Robey-Graham’s] graceful creativity and keen insight into life, qualities we used to drink in deeply while we had the chance,” says the author’s widower, Dr. Gordon Graham. “We are left with many robust memories of her joyful spirit and indomitable optimism, and when we think of her, we do so with deep respect.”
