I was happy to see this thread for Newbies! I'm new to Savvy Authors but not new to writing stories. I have been writing since I was eight years old. Telling stories through words has always been a passion of mine. Reading books taught me that you can be anywhere in the world (or off-world) and never have to leave your bedroom.
I'm not sure which genre my writing would fall under, but Christian Fiction is always what I put down when I'm asked. Just saying those two words together sounds like an oxymoron. Christian speaks of truth, and fiction is something not true. It's a real thing, though. I write stories about family, life, love, everyday drama, and second chances.
I'm not preachy, but my stories always show that faith in something bigger than yourself brings hope. Hope is a powerful thing. You only need a tiny bit to get you through the darkest times. Faith, hope, and love are three connectors in life, and no matter what, chaos and carnage are going on around us if we have one of those... Well, magic and miracles can happen.
I'm working on two novels (both at the halfway point) and can't seem to move forward. I'm stuck. Also working on a compilation of short stories, which I'm loving! I hope to complete and publish all of these by the end of 2023. That's a BIG goal, possibly unrealistic, but a girl has a try!
Looking forward to honing my skills and learning from others.
