Abigayle has been a writer ever since her mother taught her how to hold a pencil. However, she devoted more time to reading words with her green eyes than penning them with her left hand. Inspired by a crazy dream at the age of sixteen, she set off on a journey to self-publish her first novel, Martin Hospitality.

Since then, Abigayle has devoted herself to sharing what she has learned through the mediums of freelance editing and her blog The Left-Handed Typist ... when period drama films are not calling more loudly.

In that case, there really is no end to what we can do. Writing is ever changing, always expanding, never ending. As a writer, I get to be all of that, too.

Embracing Our Story

God writes the best stories if we choose to accept His path. That's what this post boils down to. I hope as this crazy year draws to a close that you value your role more than ever.


During 2020, I went from knowing that God was worthy of my trust to experiencing that again. 
I got a great job (during a pandemic).I got diagnosed with epilepsy (and wasn't panicky about it).I had a ton of car repai Read more of this blog post »

Martin Legacy by Abigayle Claire
"4.5 stars & 5/10 hearts. I enjoyed this book more than the first book. Josiah was a great dad, and a great husband; and Gemma was an awesome mother, too. Farris was absolutely adorable as a teen; and I shipped him & Mila so hard. XD I still love Trav" Read more of this review »
Martin Legacy by Abigayle Claire
"This was a very nice extension/epilogue for Gemma and Farris.

“You don’t heal in a single moment. It’s day by day, a little at a time. The time it takes doesn’t mean God’s not healing you, or that you need to change tactics.”
Abigayle Claire, Martin Legacy

“So what do you do on the days you can’t move on?”
