Author has written 12 stories for Hobbit, and Pride and Prejudice.

I'm encouraged to find so many lovely writers and stories on this mega-blog. I'm only posting a few myself, but I'll be reading many of yours! I enjoy writing jokes as you'll see below, but my longest story is one that borrows a lot from my marriage and is based on Song of Songs. Several of my stories have scenes of marital bliss; however, the goal is not to titillate but to show how happy and fulfilling marriage is when it involves equal partners who truly love each other. Waiting for the right one brings enormous rewards!

I want to inspire women to value themselves enough to not settle for anything less than equal partnerships with men of noble heart. They do exist in the world because I'm married to one. He is an amazing man who is as curious about life as I am, and we're delighted to have two sons who are seeking out relationships with God and studying His Word. We are grateful followers of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, and we stand for what the Bible teaches without apology.

My long story contains Bible verses and scenarios woven into the plot and conversations. None of my stories involve premarital sex nor will they ever. My characters do face temptations of all kinds, but they struggle to overcome them and they have each other to help them succeed. Fighting to do what's right, failing, and getting up to fight again is reality, and I hope my characters and stories show real people with real sins and character faults striving for honor and nobility with the help of faithful friends.
