When I was in college and tired of writing papers (I was a Communication major and an English minor, so I wrote a lot of papers!), I turned to story. Because the truth is that I love writing, and I can’t function without putting pen to paper–or fingers to keyboard, as the case may be! The Steadfast Love series was born out of a love of history, a passion for true love, and a desire to show that God is the Source of all Hope.
Five months after I graduated, I signed a three-book deal with my dream publisher.
Now I work as a freelance editor, coaching writers on the path to publication by teaching them how to structure their writing so that they can make more room for the art and heart of writing. Write Well, my nonfiction debut, is the product of years of working as an editor.
