It’s a while before I find my voice. “Why me?” I ask eventually. I have so many questions that this seems the best starting place.
“Because after he’s caught me, he’ll be after you.”
“Oh really?” I drawl it out, even though I have to wrap my arms around myself to stop the...Read more of this blog post »

I am writing this at my sister’s dining room table in Florida.
My mom is asleep nearby on the living room couch, contorted into a comma-like shape in the corner. My sister is asleep in her room down the hall.
Mom was up wandering most of the night so everybody is exhausted. And we’d be exhausted...Read more of this blog post »
uring the Winter Writing Festival I was in the chat room one night and we got to talking about our works in progress. While there, I mentioned that I hit a point in every single manuscript where I want to kill both my characters. Give ‘em both a big ‘ole Thelma and Louise over a cliff so I ne...
I don’t watch much TV. I know, lots of people say that and don’t really mean it. But seriously, nowadays I watch a couple of hours a week, tops. It’s not that I have anything against television; I just don’t have time for it. Day job, writing, kids, daily walk… you know how it goes.
But there are...Read more of this blog post »

For evangelicals who lament last Friday’s Supreme Court decision, it’s been a hard few days. We aren’t asking for emotional pity, nor do I suspect many people are eager to give us any. Our pain is not sacred. Making legal and theological decisions based on what makes people feel better is part of...Read more of this blog post »
You don’t really know who your friends are until their relationship with you becomes a liability instead of a benefit. Many celebrities, and even Christian celebrities, have learned this lesson the hard way. In the blink of an eye, or the release of a news story, they went from fêted to ignored,...Read more of this blog post »

Full disclosure: I’m not going to pretend I’m anything like objective here.
