 Hi, Lily! 🙂 I write Biblical fiction with a YA audience in mind. It’s what I want to do because I’ve observed that many teens don’t want to read the Bible because they find it boring – which is honestly understandable! I believe that by crafting Biblical fiction that is riveting and exciting while proclaiming deep truths, I can help to encourage teens to have a relationship with God and view the Bible as the amazing Book it is.

Hi Joy! That’s awesome that you want to encourage teens too!  Hey, have you ever read Twice Freed (by Patricia St. John)?  It’s been a long time since I’ve read it, but I remember it was based off Onesimus, the slave Paul helped in the book of Philemon.
