I have three great loves: Jesus, my family, and books. And chocolate (okay, four great loves). I write fast-paced, emotional Christian fiction that weaves real-life problems, real-life people, and real-life faith. My characters may (okay, will) experience some heartache along the way, but I promise I'll always give them a happy ending.

Valerie M. Bodden Ah, writer's block. Some days the words just flow, and other days--well, they don't so much flow as flop onto the page one painful word at a time. But…moreAh, writer's block. Some days the words just flow, and other days--well, they don't so much flow as flop onto the page one painful word at a time. But even on those days I try to sit down and write anyway. I do it knowing full well that I may have to go back and rewrite those words in the future, but I still consider it progress (can't rewrite a blank page and all that). I also try to start each day with a long walk with my dog, which gives me time to just let my mind wander--and often I come home with plot problems worked out or new ideas ready to get onto the page.(less)

Movie recommendations from my readers!

Friday nights are family movie night at our house, and lately, we've been especially enjoying old movies. In my newsletter last week, I asked readers for recommendations of their favorite movies from the 1970s and earlier, and they came through in a big way! I got so many great suggestions that I just had to share them here. I hope you'll find some to enjoy as well!

(Just a note that there are newe

“This was why he didn’t go out, didn’t talk to people. Eventually, people weren’t content to let you be a stranger without a history anymore. They wanted to know about your past―and they didn’t care if you didn’t want to tell about it.”
Valerie M. Bodden, Not Until You

“Her eyes were what had drawn him to her in the first place. So impossibly light they were almost transparent. But it was more than their color. It was their warmth. Their sincerity. The way they revealed everything she felt.
Which was also what scared him about them.”
Valerie M. Bodden, Not Until This Moment

“A warm hand gripped her fingers and squeezed. Before he could let go, Violet squeezed back. She needed this connection, this moment to tell her she wasn’t alone, she wasn’t the only one who hurt and didn’t know what to do with it.”
Valerie M. Bodden, Not Until You

“You will never be enough on your own. But that's okay. Because you don't need to be enough. God doesn't care what you've accomplished. He loves you without condition. When you look to Christ, you will triumph. You will have everything. You will have the victory.”
Valerie M. Bodden, Not Until Forever
