Staying Relevant (but keeping violence in YA fiction under control)

by Deborah Heal A Dangerous Trend I don’t believe fiction, especially Christian fiction for young people, needs gratuitous violence to make the plot exciting.

Digging Up Your Past so You Can Resurrect Your Future

By Gina Conroy Sometimes when writing a novel, the story takes on a life of its own. The words and themes seem to flow naturally, without much thought, and by some miracle, it all seems to work together. As if God planned it that way. That’s how it was with Digging Up Death. […]
