The thing that slows us down is not our baggage, but our decision to carry it.
My debut novel – the 2019 Christy Award winner for First Novel, and published by Thomas Nelson, is a modern-day parable that explores the issue of baggage, and whether we would be best advised to deal with it.
Three people mix up their luggage at the airport, and at the baggage depot they discover there is far more in their baggage than they remember packing. And the Baggage Handler tells them they have to deal with it before they can leave.
You can read Chapters 1 and 2 here, or you could flick through some excerpts below .. or why not listen to me read Chapter 1 to you?
It’s touching readers’ lives, and sparking discussion among book clubs.
So join the story of The Baggage Handler, and start a conversation with those around you about the baggage we all carry.
