My passion is making the Old and New Testament come alive - often through devotionals taken right from His Word or by applying my own imagination to the stories found in His Book (staying true to the stories, of course). I have found that, no matter how old the Scripture stories are (and the NEWEST ones are 2000 years old), the truths in them are absolutely timeless.
I have written in lots of different styles - from science fiction (only once on a "dare" - and I will NEVER do it again!) to contemporary to historical to nonfiction - but my favorite genres, and where I believe God has called me to write, are Bible-based devotionals and biblical fiction. I have several short stories in this genre here on the blog and on my FaithWriters profile.
My friend Jen Slattery and I are currently looking for a home for a tween biblical fiction devotional we wrote, which we're calling The Story of Faith. It includes fifty-two biblical fiction stories from the Old Testament, along with a lesson, a memory verse, and an historical fact for each one.
My current fiction work in progress is tentatively titled Handmaiden To A Princess. It is set during the time of King Saul and centered around twins, one Princess Michal's handmaiden and the other a servant to Prince Jonathan.
I've also written a nonfiction book about God's provision, protection, and preparation as related to my husband's health issues. The working title is Ailing Body, Nourished Soul. This one is also looking for a home.
My other writing projects include the FaithWriters' Blog (I am the blogger there), a monthly post at the encouragement blog Jewels of Encouragement, the Midwestern group blog The Barn Door, and Internet Cafe' Devotions and, occasionally, the Faithwriters' Writing Challenge.
