Here's some recent letters we've received from fans about the Snow White and Rose Red Trilogy:
From two friends, November 13: "We enjoy rereading your books together and discussing different aspects of them (and also princesses and knights in general). We are so encouraged that there are exciting, romantic, dangerous, Catholic fairy tales out there. We have fallen in love with each and everyone of your princes in turn."
From a fan, Oct. 23: "I've been a fan of yours since 2011 when you came to our homeschool conference here in KY. I was thirteen then, and I bought Black As Night and loved it. Well, since I turned sixteen a couple weeks ago, I bought Waking Rose. I've got to say, it was definitely worth the wait. I think it's the best Fairy Tale Novel ever, although I love them all. I love the fact that you can make exciting, funny, and moving Catholic stories for those of us who have protective parents. They are, in my not-so-humble-opinion, up there with LOTR and Narnia as amazing fantasy and faith-filled stories."

NEW! Pope Francis comic: I Believe in Mercy
by Regina Doman
Our latest manga features the inspiring story of Pope Francis, whose journey to the papacy began one day when he was a teenager on holiday and felt an impulse to go into a church he was passing to go to confession.
For some, this little comic might also clear up the issue of "Is our Pope a conservative or a liberal?" I've been explaining to my friends that the church situation in Argentina was complex--and complicated by the fact that the country was engulfed in a bloody civil conflict when Pope Francis was a young Jesuit leader, where Catholics fought or supported both sides.
And where did he stand? Well, to get some perspective, imagine if the U.S. Government had had the late liberal novelist-priest Fr. Andrew Greeley kidnapped and held in an undisclosed location--and the response of Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia was to make repeated visits to the U.S. Capitol until the priest was freed. Or imagine that American special forces had dissident theologian Richard McBrien tortured and hacked to pieces in a lonely Indiana field--and Archbishop Chaput responded by inviting the entire faculty of Notre Dame to hide in his bishop's residence until the government persecution ended. Then you'll get a better idea of the role Jorge Bergoglio--Pope Francis--played during Argentina's "Dirty War" and why he doesn't see church politics through the typical lenses we U.S. Catholics tend to use. It's not that he doesn't care about our struggles: he just has a different perspective, and one that I've found very useful to engage with.
