By Faith Noah Built an Ark /// Ark Encounter Trip (Part 1)

Greetings, friends! I don’t get out much, especially not now with the pandemic and all. That’s why I was so shocked when I learned that my family was going on a trip to visit the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Who in their right mind would travel at a time like this?! I could catch aContinue reading “By Faith Noah Built an Ark /// Ark Encounter Trip (Part 1)”

A Reader’s Guide to the Silmarillion /// Part Nine

When Am I Going to Publish My Book? (Project Update)

There are a lot of questions I ask myself every day. What am I going to eat for breakfast? (Usually cereal or yogurt with berries.) What should I do today? (Definitely something productive, right? That’s always the hope.) Why is my cat meowing for someone to pet him again? (He’s just a crybaby, I suppose.)Continue reading “When Am I Going to Publish My Book? (Project Update)”

The Storywell – Cadenza

Ah, I see you have returned for the continuation of the Storywell adventure! This week we’re getting to know Cadenza, one of my personal favorite characters. (Just don’t tell the others.)

Faith to Move Mountains

I have always loved mountains. Just looking at them fills me with a sense of awe. Mountains are stalwart sentinels, but take on vastly different guises with each turn of the season and movement of the sun. Ever-changing clouds wreath the peaks with rainbows and mist. Golden sunrises highlight their grandeur with deep shadows, theContinue reading “Faith to Move Mountains”

A Reader’s Guide to The Silmarillion /// Part Seven

Welcome back, friends! This week, I’m continuing my “Reader’s Guide” series with chapters 16-18 of The Silmarillion.

The Storywell – Brynna Sparrow

Welcome back to the Storywell, where I as an author can jump into the pages of my books and interrogate my characters! Today I venture back into the world of Reimira, this time to visit a precious charrie called Brynna Sparrow. No, she is not the long lost daughter of Jack Sparrow (that would beContinue reading “The Storywell – Brynna Sparrow”
