I’m a Jesus-follower, word-lover, and song-bird. My aspiration is to craft stories that are deep, impactful, beautiful, and Christ-centered.
I have a wise dad, a fun-loving mom, an out-of-the-box brother, and a joyful sister. If you come to my house, you might find me typing away at a keyboard, or cuddling up with my clown of a basset hound-border collie mix.
I write whenever I get the chance, and I adore words that pour from your heart to the tip of your pen, emotions and ideas streaming onto paper with the theme of my Lord and Savior prevailing in the end.
I find great joy in writing nonfiction articles about how God’s grace can impact your life at my blog, Grace Abounds. I am in the process of publishing my Christian historical novel, The Thrall’s Sword, which will likely be published around the summer of 2021. You can read more about this exciting adventure novel set in the Viking Age here.
My favorite fictional books are The Mark of The Lion series by Francine Rivers, because of the deep emotional and spiritual impact she leaves on the reader. Aside from the Bible, my favorite nonfiction book is Crazy Love, by Francis Chan, which increased my faith in our great God at a young age. My favorite book in the Bible is 1 John, and my favorite verse from that book is in chapter 4, verse 8: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” By the grace of God, each day I am being loosed more and more from the grips of fear, and I am discovering more and more the depths of God’s perfect love for me. He is so good!
While I love to write, my greatest passion of all is following Jesus Christ wherever He takes me. As I study English and Creative Writing at the University of Arizona, I look forward to all He does in me and through me, and the ways He wants to use me as a writer to speak truth and grace to a broken world.
I hope you learn as much as I do as you join me on my writing journey!
May God’s grace abound in your life,
