AUTHOR LIFE: Still Surreal

July 2, 2018


I am an author. This is still surreal. Rightly so, because while I have always been an avid reader, writing a book never crossed my mind.


I became a writer because I had a story to tell. After I got married, several of my friends and relatives wanted to know how I met my husband. So, I had to share my love story, over and over again.


Of course, no one wanted to hear the short version of the story. Six months later, I received a phone call from a friend whom I had not spoken with in a while. She too wanted to hear my love story. After hanging up from my call, it hit me…write a book! A long deafening pause ensued! A book! A book! Every reason not to write this book came to mind. Yes, every reason. But, I knew I wanted to share my story.



Further, I knew that if God called me to write this book, He would equip me and surround me with wonderful godly helpers. So, like any well-thinking Christian woman, I took the matter to the Lord and felt the peace to proceed with this mission. Approximately two years later, I published my first Christian Fiction, “Unforgettable, My Love Has Come Along”, a love story based on real-life events.


After the excitement of publishing my first book, my writing journey continued with the “Encounters of the Heart” series, which is based on Proverbs 4:23 –“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”


I am a Christian and I enjoy reading romantic stories so the Christian Fiction Romance genre was a natural fit. Writing has become a natural way for me to process my emotions and a conduit to inspire those around me. I discovered how much I like writing. Now, I write with a sense of purpose to educate, inspire and empower others.



Let me hear from you.
