the Story Spinner

 

Hello and God bless you! I am a Christian, multi-genre author and independent researcher-of-the-past. I write and publish studies and other nonfiction works from a biblical perspective, as well as fiction that inspires lovers of folklore, fairy tales and history. Like my favorite author C. S. Lewis, I strive to share biblical truth through my writing, and also like him, the fairy tale is one of my favorite types of stories to write. 

C. S. Lewis once wrote, "Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker." 

 

Growing up, my childhood was filled with books and imagination. My mother's creativity helped foster my own. I once told her that my favorite color was white because I could make it into anything I wanted. I often dreamt up stories and scenarios that I would play out with my younger siblings. Our house and backyard became other worlds. 

 

From my father, I inherited my love for history. As an adult, I have especially loved studying the origins of the fairy tales and folk stories that I loved so much as a child. The customs and stories of the past teach us about ourselves, where we came from, and the wisdom, or sometimes not so much, of our ancestors.

My avocations include collecting folklore stories for retelling, Bible study, and peasant cooking. I live in Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania with my husband Max, our son Ari, and our dog Bill. I serve in ministry at the Journey Church.
