Cover of Stranded by Don and Stephanie Prichard

First they had to survive the island … then each other … then their rescuer.

All Marine Corps reservist Jake Chalmers wants is to give his dying wife a last, romantic cruise to the Philippines. Unable to save her in a mass murder aboard ship, he washes ashore an uninhabited jungle island, where he discovers three other survivors. Heartbroken that he failed to save his wife, he is determined not to fail these helpless castaways.

Federal prosecutor Eve Eriksson rescues a young girl and her elderly great-aunt from the same ship. They badly need Jake’s survival skills, but why is he so maddeningly careful? She needs to hurry home to nail a significant career trial. And, please, before Jake learns her secret that she’s responsible for his wife’s death.

It’s frightening to lose your memory. Even scarier is to forget what’s at stake.

Federal prosecutor Eve Eriksson disappears under mysterious circumstances and shows up a year later in a coma. What happened, and where has she been? She can’t remember, and her life is in jeopardy. Four people are hunting her down. Three claim to have been stranded on an island with her. The fourth is her old nemesis, Chicago drug lord Danny Romero, who still wants her dead. 

Jake Chalmers is shocked to discover his fiancé is a federal prosecutor. Why did she hide this from him on the island, and who is going to such great lengths to prevent their reunion? If she doesn’t regain her memory, he’ll be thrown into prison for murder.

Cover of Targeted by Don and Stephanie Prichard

When Lady Justice is targeted, who stands a chance?

Federal Judge Eve Eriksson is aghast when her fiancé agrees to raise the five-year-old grandson of her archenemy, Chicago drug lord Danny Romero. Little does she know that the cost of saying no will be the loss of her reputation, her judgeship, and the safety of three children. Murder sends her fleeing into hiding until justice can prevail. But will it?

When Marine Corps reservist Jake Chalmers makes a commitment, he won’t fall short in executing it—even when it means risking his life to rescue an enemy’s orphaned son for adoption. But does the boy have to put Jake’s wedding plans at risk? Jake’s fiancée has to flee for her life because of the boy. Jake can protect her, but first he must find her—assuming she wants to be found.

DUNCE HAT KING: When Life is Pass or Fail

A Memoir

Man was I excited! I was four years old, and I finally got to go to school, just like my four siblings! All the grades, kindergarten through eighth, were together in the same room, and we shared the same teacher.

My desk was right against Teacher’s. How cool was that? I turned around and waved at my siblings. This was a big day. My first day at school! Who else did I know? I wanted to look at everything, hear everything, be a part of everything. And I was going to learn lots of stuff! Or was I?

Before a week had gone by, Teacher marched me up front to a corner next to the blackboard. “Face the wall and don’t turn around,” she commanded. I shrank back as a pointed dunce hat landed on my head. Honestly, I was trying to learn my ABCs, but how could I sit still that long? If I even wiggled, Teacher’s eyes shot to me and she shook her head. My chest snuffed in a sharp breath. I hung my head when I heard my classmates giggle.

  1. First of all, this book was awesome! I am an avid Christian fiction reader and am so excited I have some new authors to read! As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, this story was a much needed read. It reaffirms what I already believe but was beginning to doubt again. Thanks for including the subject in your storyline. May God give you what you need so you can write the next book in a hurry!!

  2. Very good read. Looking forward to sequel. Thanks for good Christian adventure.

  3. Mary Ann DiFonzo

    I just loved your book. Was hoping the sequel was all ready in print. Couldn’t wait to finish reading then was disappointed that it was done.

    • I know what you mean, Mary Ann. I zip through a book I love and then too soon it’s over and I’m sad. If you sign up for our newsletter, you will be updated on when the sequel is coming out.

  4. Dianne Pearson

    This book was wonderful and can hardly wait to read the sequel. It kept me spellbound and didn’t want it end. A very very good read.

  5. Awesome story. I feel like I know Jake and the 3 gals. I didn’t want the story to end. I would be interested in the soldiers they found (maybe you could tell their story). How was it they became abandoned? What happened when their bodies were returned? I read your true accounts of the 2 Japanese soldiers found 28-30 years after the war – that’s incredible. Can’t wait for the map or the sequel!

  6. Great book. Could not put it down. Simply the best read of my vacation. So sorry when it ended. Will recommend it highly to friends.

  7. Awesome book. I’m wondering if you are related to Prichards who used to live in Dickinson, ND? I helped them with VBS in the summers with American Sunday School Union.

  8. Loved the book! Could not put it down. God bless.

  9. Enjoyed the book. Good adventure. Just enough chickness to make it sweet and the Christian theme in just the right proportion. Interesting twist with the garden and the snake. Was that planned or a God thing?

  10. You are indeed a gifted writer and know it’s from God. Stranded kept me coming back. However I was disappointed that there was not a resolution concerning Emelio. The book is such an excellent read that I recommended it before completing it. May God bless you to write another. Shalom!!!

  11. AMAZING!!! I loved every minute of this novel! The adventure, the sadness, the love and even the anger! (This would make a great movie. Cannot wait to read the sequel and find out what happens next!!

  12. Are you kidding me…..not a great read…poor plot development and I am sorry man eating/attacking pythons!!!! Can Eve screw up one more time and do the opposite of what Jake…..the only one who had a cue about how to suvive…..tells her to do.

  13. I just finished reading Stranded;I LOVED it and couldn’t put it down!! As a retired English teacher and a Christian, I’m thrilled when I can read something of quality…and I can’t wait until the sequel!

  14. Carol Ray Braum

    I just finished Stranded and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is hard to put down, though, which is not good when I need to sleep!! 😉 I don’t know if you remember me from my Indianapolis days, but I remember you and visiting in your home. I think it’s great that you can write together! Looking forward to the sequel.

  15. Kathryn Yingst

    Just finished Stranded and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the sequel! I so appreciate reading a good story that does not include offensive language. Kathryn Y.

  16. Stephanie, I did not realize you were from Indy. I live in Montana now, but grew up in Greenfield, will always consider Indiana home. Since Jake’s home is Indy, it would be awesome to see you put in a little more about Indy in your sequel.

  17. Have just finished Stranded and loved, couldn’t put it down. Please let me know when the sequel is out. Thanks for a brilliant read x

  35. I just finished the book and really enjoyed it. I glad it involved more than one stranded person. The spiritual teachings were very appropriate when presented. It’s good to read a Christian novel involving true adventure and mystery. I am looking forward to the sequel.

  36. Please let know bout sequel, loved book

  37. What a great story!! Full of suspense, adventure and even…yuck!!!…snakes! 😉
    Well-written with believable situations/creative resolutions, I especially enjoyed the lack of pat Christian answers to some challenging life experiences characters had to go through.
    I love Christian fiction and am thrilled to have found 2 new authors to add to my reading list! 😊

  42. Loved your book – one of the very best I’ve read recently. I’ve noticed recently more authors are using God’s name in vain (Christian authors!) Thanks so much for not doing so!!

  43. Virginia Villani

    This story was wonderful and loved the style of writing. I could hardly put it down and can hardly wait to read the sequel.

  44. AWESOME. Great Christian novel. It was a page turner from the first page to the last. Highly recommended.

  45. Stephanie , I enjoyed your book so much. It’s one that you can’t put down . It was exciting , always wondering what would happen next. For your first book you both did a great work . God truly blessed you … Looking forward to your next one in 2016. Thanks again for my gift . Taking it to our church library this Sunday . God bless….

  46. I just finished reading your book and had to write to say that I absolutely loved it. It held my attention and thoughts the whole time, even when I was doing other things. I laughed, cried, held my breath, even prayed while I read it. Thanks for writing a book that a Christian can read without having to skip over any pages. I hope your next one will be out soon!

  47. Hi. I am a Church of England Christian and started your book because it looked interesting. I couldn’t put it down! In fact have just made myself very late because I simply had to finish it before I left home!

    Not only is it a great story, wonderfully told, I was simply delighted to discover as I read on, the strong Christian ethos and messages you have so cleverly combined in a great thriller. Congratulations!

    I can’t wait for the sequel! When do you think it will be finished?

    God bless.

  48. it was a thrilling book. I was shaking as I read some of the scenes. Can’t wait for the sequel

  49. Alison Galloway

    Unlike a lot of heart warming stories, this book shows the darker side of life and how important keeping your faith though bad times can be. Four different people with different problems relying on each other to keep alive. I could not put the book down and the housework did not get down. Good job that it was not a work day. I felt for Jack and wondered would I still put my trust in God if I was in the same place. Good on you both for writing such a powerful book on Love and Faith making sorrows and pain.

    • I appreciate your insight, Alison–“how important keeping your faith through bad times can be…. Would I still put my trust in God if I was in the same place?” You nailed one of the take-aways for readers! *big hug*

  50. I would like to know when the sequel is published please.
