Award-Winning Author, L. P. Hoffman

From her Grandfather’s tales about Buffalo Bill to the mystique of the West, L. P. Hoffman’s imagination was primed at an early age. In her transient childhood, she experienced the dark side of Caribbean culture and survived war in the Middle East. As an adult, the author has traveled the world and moved among Washington insiders. L. P. Hoffman values unique perspectives and believes that culturally relevant stories born of experience are the ones best told.

L. P. Hoffman has always felt most comfortable communicating in the written medium. She began writing short stories as a child because she found it was the best way for her to express her thoughts.

The L. P. Hoffman brand is literary fiction—using mystery and suspense to write about culturally relevant, sometimes controversial, issues—written from a multiple third-person viewpoint with a braided plot chain that propels the reader through the story. Many readers have said they cannot put her books down.

L. P. Hoffman writes her novels with a Christian worldview, but the Christian elements are organic to the story and readers say her books are not “preachy.” She writes thought-provoking novels that she hopes will inspire people to look further into the issues.

THE THIRD PERIL—Book One of a Trilogy
A modern-day, epic-suspense novel about people, faith, and providence in times of cultural upheaval and national insecurity.

In 1777, General George Washington experienced a divine visitation at Valley Forge. “Three great perils will come upon this nation.” An angelic being describes the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, but warns, “The Third Peril will be the worst.” Today, this message is revisited. Five-year-old Connor Hays, son of the Chief Economic Advisor to the President of the United States, insists that an angel told him, “War is coming to America!” But who will believe a child?

THE THIRD WOE—Book Two of The Third Peril Trilogy
The Second Book of a modern-day, epic-suspense trilogy about faith and providence in times of cultural upheaval and national insecurity.

Much has changed in the nearly six-and-one-half years since the Third Peril struck at the very heart of America. A new worldview has the president taking the USA in a different direction. Imagine a surprising paradigm for a counter-culture movement. People are supporting nationalism over globalism, espousing freedom of religion instead of political correctness, advocating for truth and justice over victimhood. It's an upside down world. What was formerly the moral majority—those who value faith, liberty, and self-determination—is now in the minority and fighting for their rights. In The Third Woe, a small cadre of people are beginning to rethink all the "progress" that has been foisted upon the populace since the war. But, which vision for America will prevail?
