Last week I published a post on why I write Christian fiction, and it was very well received. A lot of people agreed with me on why we should be writing Christian fiction and it was really enjoyable to discuss finer points with readers who didn’t agree with everything I said. However, I’ve not quite finished the series I started with that post. I still have three(ish) posts left to do, including this one.
I’m going to be away next Saturday, so I’ll have a scheduled post for you guys, which may or may not end up being the next in this series. However, today I’m going to share five things that have helped me in my quest to write Christian fiction (and over the coming weeks I’ll be talking about what I believe is wrong in the current Christian fiction market and the pros and cons of Christians writing secular fiction over Christian fiction).

Here we go (thanks to the wonderful, Tania for tagging me :D)
Who is God to you?
God is a Father, Ruler, Judge, Comforter, and someone I am not worthy to approach, yet He still calls me to Himself. Continue reading
As I sit down to draft this post, I have to admit that I’m kind of intimidated by the high standards that I have to live up to–after the beautiful, heartfelt posts by Sarah, Hailey, Audrey and Jane Maree.
So I’m not going to try and one up them or anything, I’m just going to do exactly what they did–attempt to share my heart with you.
Today, I’m so pleased and excited to have the amazing pizza ninja, Jane Maree herself, here for our second last post in this series! (goodness gracious, I sound like a radio presenter :P)
