About the Author

“This is your life. Is it everything you dreamed that it would be, when the world was younger and you had everything to lose?”

~ Switchfoot “This is Your Life”

I am a teen writer,  currently working on a four book young adult series that explores human struggles and the deeper questions of theology in a high fantasy world. I enjoy hunting with my father, sword fighting with my friends, playing with my cat, and writing for my God.

“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.”

~ Isaiah 9:2 NKJV

I do not have much to my name, but I do have one thing. I have a King who defeated death and called me to proclaim His name, the name of Jesus. And I know the story that He wants me to tell.

So maybe you should not listen to my writing tips—I am just an unpublished, inexperienced college student. But hopefully, you will hear my purpose. God has called me to proclaim hope and truth to whoever will listen. Maybe this blog is not how I am supposed to reach people, but it is a step.

Because God will change the world and I will speak His truth.

“Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?”

~ Galatians 4:16

“Forget not Master Valiant-for-the-Truth,

That man of courage, though a very youth.

Tell everyone his spirit was so stout,

No man could make him face about,

And how Great-Heart and he could not forbear

But put down Doubting Castle, slay Despair.”

~ John Bunyan “Pilgrim’s Progress”

    1. Thank you! The Christian walk isn’t easy, but it is the best. I checked out your blog, and I enjoyed your review of the Hunger Games. Frankly, I cannot stand the books because of moral issues (as you mention), lack of character development, and the fact that I simply hate Katniss. Since they are so popular, I am always glad to find someone else who feels the same way.

  5. I stumbled across your blog via a link to ‘top five fantasy cliches to avoid’, and I must say, finding a teen author who is also a Christian has been thrilling and spiritually up-lifting! I love your quotes, and reading that you’ve struggled with depression gives me hope, because I struggle myself. I might just mention that in your five fantasy cliches to avoid, the reason that there are forests instead of skyscrapers is that there’s something alive and wonderful about nature that cannot be captured among buildings, signs, and electric lights. But that’s just a thought. I’ll certainly be returning to this blog to read some of your other posts about writing!

    1. Thank you! I am glad that my story is uplifting. I will pray for you 🙂 Depression is a complicated, hard thing to deal with.
      I completely agree with you that nature is special and much better than technology (I am a country girl who loves camping, backpacking, and hunting.) But I still think you could put fantasy in a technological world, though it might not be my personal preference either 😉

  6. I stumbled upon your blog accidentally, and I’m so happy I did! We share a similar vision, I think; to tell stories for our God. I’m currently writing a young adult novel too. It’s meant to tell reflect Christ’s truth in a slightly futuristic setting. I look forward to keeping up with what you are doing! 🙂
