I reside in the metropolitan Phoenix area. After writing romantic suspense intended for traditional publishers, but unable to suppress the Christian themes and understories persisting in my stories, I fully subjected myself to my muse. My books are best described as sensual romance, involving fallible Christian and non-Christian characters, simmering in a broth of suspense, where love and faith ultimately triumph.
While I truly hope my readers find my stories both encouraging and uplifting, in order to depict realistic characters and situations, and also stay true to the stories I feel driven to tell, my stories do include some explicit language and sexual content. Its important to understand that my characters do not always portray and should not be expected to reflect good examples of Christian behavior nor my attitudes. I realize this risks offending some of my fellow Christians–although that is not my intention. I see my primary reader audience as non-Christian or “passive” Christian . . . someone who would not ordinarily pick up an “inspirational” book, but who I hope will be encouraged by the stories’ messages to consider and investigate some plot conflicts a little deeper, and also explore Scripture directly to better understand the tenets and beliefs introduced by the Christian characters.
Free Bible studies are available online–many with audio lessons downloadable at your convenience. A really good, well-presented, and Scripturally sound one I’ve found is Versebyverseministry.org.
