Quick Overview

The Shoebox Kids #5

Sheffield Matheson, Mill Valley's most famous artist, painted twelve pictures of children. But when he died long ago in a mysterious fire, one painting disappeared.

When Sammy and Jenny see the Broken Dozen paintings at the Mill Valley art museum, Sammy begins to wonder: What if the missing painting wasn't burned in the fire? What if we can find it?

This time, the clues lead Sammy and his friends to one of the oldest houses in town—and to mean old Mrs. Sheckly. She chases kids with her cane, throws water on them from her porch—she even has an attack cat!

But when a lesson in the Shoebox teaches them that helping others is like helping Jesus, Sammy and Jenny decide to help Mrs. Sheckly, and that leads to a big surprise.

Can the Shoebox Kids solve a mystery the police could never figure out?

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Glen Robinson


Glen Robinson is a communication professor at Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, Texas as well as general manager of the campus radio station KJCR-FM. He views his present responsibilities as a culmination of twenty-five years of communication work for the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Previously, Glen served ten years as a book and magazine editor for Pacific Press« Publishing Association. While there, he was responsible for product research for Pacific Press« and spent two years as associate editor of Listen magazine. As co-editor he helped launch and direct ParentTalk magazine.

Before that, he worked in hospital public relations for seven years, first at Hinsdale Hospital in Illinois (1980-1982) and then at Paradise Valley Hospital in San Diego, California (1982-1988). He started his communication career as managing editor of the church periodical, the Pacific Union Recorder in 1975, serving for five years under the tutelage of Pacific Union Conference communication director Shirley Burton.

Glen earned a B.A. in communication from Pacific Union College in 1975 and an M.A. in Information and Communication studies at California State University, Chico. He is presently involved in doctoral studies at the University of North Texas.

If Tomorrow Comes is Glen's sixth published book.

In addition, he has had scores of stories and articles published in various church publications.

"As with all my writing projects, If Tomorrow Comes started when several thoughts came together over several years," says Glen. "Many Christians become complacent about the end time, thinking that events have to happen a certain way in order for Jesus to come. I wanted to approach the story in a way that hadn't been handled before. In addition, rather than dealing with events on a worldwide scale, I wanted to show it on a personal levelùhow it would affect a family."

Glen lives in Cleburne, Texas with his wife, Shelly, who is a registered nurse; his son, Matt, who is a student at Southwestern; and his daughter, Missy, who is a student at Chisholm Trail Academy in Keene.
