Occasionally, she reports on the experiences of newly converted Christians for Baptist Press, a national news service for Baptists. At one time, she wrote a weekly column for The Indiana Baptist, entitled "A Story To Tell," which told the stories of ordinary people who became followers of Christ. Luana is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers.
Luana is an award-winning author. Her third book in the Titus Ray Thriller Series, Three Weeks in Washington, won the 2017 Oklahoma Book Award for fiction.
Luana is a minister's wife and has lived in Norman, Oklahoma for the past two decades. Previously, she resided in several states in the South and Midwest. Along with her husband, she also served as a missionary in Costa Rica and Venezuela.
Luana picked up her first adult spy novel when she was eleven years old. Today, she continues to have a passion for the thriller/suspense genre of fiction, along with a smattering of interest in historical fiction. In addition to being an avid reader, she is also a news fanatic, following events around the world on a daily basis, particularly the Middle East.
Luana is a freelance writer, minister's wife, and former missionary with a passion for spy thrillers and mystery novels. She began writing the Titus Ray novels when her husband retired from the pastorate. Now she writes from an undisclosed location, trying to avoid the torture of mundane housework, golf stories and grocery shopping. However, she occasionally comes out of hiding to spend time with her two grandsons or to enjoy a Starbucks caramel macchiato. She resides in Norman, Oklahoma.
