Strong stories with spirit
It’s a true testament to the Grace of God that I’m a published author. I never really liked writing and didn’t read much for pleasure. Outdoor activities, organizing, and fixing things colored my roots. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good story and can get swept up by a good book as easily as a veracious reader. But I would have never dreamed I’d write stories and publish books.
My publication path surprisingly began back in 2005. I had a horrifically stunning dream that sank its hooks in my heart. The dream provoked a myriad of emotions so great, I had to figure out how to put them into words. I didn’t know just how much I didn’t know, so I began my quest. Learn how to write. Word by word, scene by scene, chapter by chapter my story unfolded.
Three books later, and one on the way, I continue this God appointed journey. It’s slow, and unnatural, but oh so exciting. I don’t write nearly as fast as my critique partners and that’s just fine. And as long as God blesses with a passion to write, I’ll fire up my laptop and keep on creating stories that spark imagination and inspire others. And I’ll do it word by word, scene by scene, chapter by chapter.
Thank you, God of Grace, for igniting writing within me!
