Tom Donnan and Free Books

A Family steps into the kingdom of God and into the supernatural.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of The Soul Searcher, by Erin Howard, is:


Congratulations! We'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's meet novelist Tom Donnan, author of One Door Between Us (Gazelle Press, November 2018).

Tom Donnan died on February 6th 2006 of a heart attack. His first experience was hearing God speak to him. He said: “It is only while you are on earth that you can work for Jesus!” The paramedics brought Tom back to life, and his passion is serving the Lord.

He has three children and five grandchild. Retired from a 44-year career as an elevator mechanic, he now writes, speaks, and ministers as God opens the doors.

Wow, that's quite a testimony, Tom. 

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I'm now enrolled in Global University where I hope to enter ministry.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of One Door Between Us.

The book is all about what happens when God enters a family and the changes that take place with each of them. It is not just a salvation message, the supernatural side of God becomes part of their lives. The book is written to allow the reader to see what is happening on both sides, in our world and the spiritual realm.

The main character, Arielle steps through two important doors in her life. One door is to lasting love and the other is answering the call of God upon her life.

What is it about Arielle that will make your readers care about her?

Arielle has an insatiable desire to know the truth in every story and a goal to achieve lofty educational degrees. It is her love and desire to please God that is seen through the book. Although Arielle is the named character in the book, the real woman goes on in life to walk the path God sets before her. Brave and courageous; she grows into the person God has hoped her to be.

Please share with us your novel’s opening line.

“Police station, this is officer Henry. How can I help you?”.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

I have shifted my reading list from Christian arena to diving into my text books. I have loved the Left Behind series and enjoy a good adventure novel with the unforeseen twist and turn.

I remember that nonfiction-only period while working on my degree, Tom. I was so eager to get back to fiction reading once I graduated!

What are you working on now?

Now that the marketing of this book has begun, I am choppin' at the bit to begin the second book in this series. Three years ago I met three dynamic lady pastors. Once I questioned them about their lives, I saw where God was ever present and very active from their beginning.

I experience God everyday. I’ll never know all about Him but reading my Bible helps. He has spoken to me many times in my heart and had me go places I hadn’t planned to only to find out why he sent me.
