Do great stories mean more to you when they’re true? Are the risks more perilous, the setbacks more crushing, the overcoming more courageous? In the end, the people in those stories go beyond what they’d ever dreamed possible for themselves.
I pray you’ll experience that same “go beyond” when you read my books.
I write immersive biblical fiction. My deepest desire is that you’ll enjoy a gripping story while going beyond what you know about the people, cultures, and inventions from biblical times. My books will immerse you in stories at the intersection of biblical and global events. You’ll experience the Bible, history, and life (then and now) in a new light. Enjoy!
Twenty years ago, a man said my writing was a sword and to keep wielding it. That comment galvanized why I write. Words can change the world—especially when applied for good.
I’ve seen that firsthand. As a master’s level counselor. As a clinician and educator. For the past fifteen years, I’ve been a freelance medical writer by day and a faith-based writer by night.
Writing is an adventure—much like hiking, my favorite hobby. Often humbling, always exciting. You’re never the same afterwards. In one way or another, you go beyond what you were before. I pray the same happens when you read my books.
A gift for you!
