Happy Birthday, Unworthy (And Why Did I Write about Depression and Suicide in Christian Fiction?)

Can you believe it’s already been a year – give or take a day – since I released Unworthy? (I kinda can, but it seems weird to think about it.) Of the three full-length novels I’ve written, Unworthy probably suffered the most from my over-enthusiastic editing. The original version of the book doesn’t look even halfway close to its published version.

Cover Reveal for Remembered (Grace Sufficient, 3.5)

And at long last, the day has arrived. For some reason, I never feel as if I release cover reveals when I originally intended. But I guess this is when the Lord has always intended the cover to be revealed, so I shall not say that I am late. 🙂

So let us continue with le blurb …


Even blissful marriage and the Christmas season don’t change the hard reality of the world …

Three months into their marriage, Nikolai and Molly find themselves rocked by sudden unemployment mere weeks before Christmas. And when unexpected news comes to light, their future becomes even more uncertain. In spite of trials, will Nikolai and Molly remember unchangeable Truth—the Truth of Christmas?

Remembered will be released, Lord willing, around Christmas in ebook form. However, newsletter subscribers will receive a free copy before the novella is officially released. So if you’re not subscribed and you’re interested in Nikolai and Molly’s story, click here!

And now for the reveal …


Writing Update + Remembered (Grace Sufficient, #3.5) News!

Well, once again, it’s been about two years since I’ve given a writing update. (Just kidding … but aside from my newsletter updates, I’ve been sorely neglecting the blog in that area.) Overall, writing has taken a bit of a backseat to school—this is my last “normal” semester before I go off to student teach. So I’ve been busy practicing my tail off in preparation for my senior recital and concerts as well as keeping up with homework and life.

Untold Blog Tour: Music of Untold (In Which I Gift You with a Playlist!)

While I wrote Molly in Untold, I had the pleasure of combining two of my favorite things—music and writing. Given she was a pianist, I thought it was super applicable that she would react and think relating to pieces of music. (However, I don’t think all musicians necessarily think in this way, haha!) But dear Molly, my amazing piano prodigy, processed so many things through music—much like writers tend to do through writing. 😊

Reflections on a Year: Is It Worth It?

On August 13th, 2021, I pressed that very scary button and published my first novel, Unknown. (I’m a few days late on its birthday, but I can’t believe my baby is so old!) Being a published author is different than I’d imagined—when I was young, I envisioned myself being published by some huge publishing house like Revell or Bethany House. (And I never imagined publishing a romantic suspense novel! Those were the days of historical fiction.) I dreamed of a far-off day when my book would be in the catalogs, when my book would be on displayed on a popular Christian fiction website.
