Why SciFi?

A few people have wondered why, as a Christian, I would write science fiction - and not even "Christian SciFi" but mainstream SciFi. Allow me to explain...

First, let me say that I totally understand the question. Why would any Christian want to delve into the world of mainstream science fiction? Characterized primarily by an atheistic worldview and, in many cases, material inappropriate for the morally conservative reader, science fiction does not appear to be a natural choice for a theologically conservative Christian writer.

This is a legitimate concern, which I am happy to address.

Exciting News!


In case you were wondering what I've been up to lately...

I have exciting news!! I have been hard at work setting up an author website, and re-writing the draft of my debut science fiction novel, which I'm independently publishing - Random Walk, Book One in the Fractured Galaxy Series. 😃

At the same time, I've been planning a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo to ensure the finished product is sleek and professional. I launched the campaign this morning, and you can check it out here!

Work and Trust




"The Lord helps those who help themselves," said no Bible verse ever. However, we are encouraged to work "as unto the Lord," which implies a certain amount of energy and dedication.

Big, BIG Changes


Perhaps you noticed. It's been a while since I last blogged. I apologize.

But here's the good news! I've moved! I had to leave my beloved Pacific Northwest mountains behind and trade them in for Indiana uplands (which are themselves rather picturesque, thankfully), but it was for the best. Now, instead of working a nearly full-time day job and editing in my free time and not having hardly any time or energy to write in my other "free time," I am now a full-time writer and editor. !!!

I moved back in October, but it's taken a while to get settled in and figure out how to actually do this. I feel pretty situated now, and just in time for the new year! :)

So. It's going to be interesting to see what all I get done. I'm working on a middle grade fiction novel that has eluded me for ages, and a SciFi trilogy that I'm unexpectedly excited about. I've got a middle grade historical fiction novel planned and another in the idea stage. I'm working on trying my hand at writing for television, and of course, I still write poetry.

There's a lot going on and I'm not sure what will actually stick. We shall find out together. :)
