 A Muslim, a hippie, and a Christian walk into a coffee shop... 

No, it's not the start of a questionable joke, it's the fascinating premise for my Deep Within Series with WhiteFire Publishing. It's hard for an author to choose a favorite book, kind of like choosing a favorite child, but I do believe my Deep Within books are the the most life-changing books I've written. These books are filled with romance, humor, and even suspense as the heroines search together for true meaning in their lives. I invite you to take this journey of discovery, starting with Dance from Deep Within

book 1 available now

Despite her conservative Muslim heritage, Layla Al-Rai longs for a chance to earn her degree in engineering and perhaps even...dare she dream...to choose her own husband. But young women from her background rarely enjoy such freedoms. When she finally talks her parents into letting her attend college, she is drawn to fellow twenty-something students, Allie and Rain, over a class project. 

Allie, the blonde ballerina, faces her own struggles as she deals with an ex-fiancé and a church she had hoped to leave behind. Rain, the bi-racial hippie chick, longs for something to believe in, but her questioning could cost her the love of her life. 

When Layla's childhood sweetheart reenters her world, it seems her dreams might become real. Until everything falls apart. When she meets truth face to face, will she find the courage to accept it even if it requires the ultimate sacrifice?

Also look for the equally compelling book 2 in the series, Dare from Deep Within, coming in November 2017.

book 2 coming November 2017
For those of you who read book 1, that's not Allie in the top left corner; it's her sister Sarah. And that's Fatima, Layla's abused Saudi friend, on the beach. The whole gang will come back together to help save Fatima in a suspense and romance filled adventure that's sure to tug at your heart and challenge your thinking. Be sure to keep an eye out for it!

  1. Such a fun Scavenger Hunt! And I love how you call your books life-changing, Dina. I find that every story I write definitely changes me first before it ever could hope to impact a reader--which is why I love wordsmithing so much. :)

    1. Hi Sonetta, It can be challenging to fit in such diverse characters in Christian fiction, I guess due to the audience and market. But WhiteFire has always been great about be open to all different kinds of characters. I'll tell you a great series with diverse characters if you haven't found it: The Yada Yada Prayer Group.
