Alanna lives on a small patch of untamable land in southwestern Ontario, with her three children, husband, and an over-weight cat. Alanna has been saturated in classic Canadian fiction since she was a young child and has been passionate about words for nearly as long, stubbornly holding to the dream of someday, spinning her own tales. Now, when evening falls, she tucks herself into her self-made study and writes stories about people: some real, some who just take up space in her head.

Saying Yes to What Scares Me

My creative journey only began its forward trajectory when I started saying yes to things that scared me. It's easy and safe to live life in a bubble, and some people can be happy there. Who can blame them, really? Have you ever watched the way the light dances off a bubble? It's like an oily prism of gorgeousness. I could get behind someone settling into that for the long haul. But me? I was m... Read more of this blog post »

A masterclass in tension. This is one of those books I didn't want to put down. The pacing was brilliant - slow yet immersive. It kept me fully engaged. SO much better than the Netflix movie.

“He is a blind man and I am his book of braille. His breath against my collarbone raises goosebumps on my arm as I let him read my story.”
Alanna Rusnak, Kissing Johnny

“Joy. In every breath. In every moment. In every turn of the blossom to face the sun. In every stream of juice that trails my chin from fruit so sweet. In Him. In the coolness of the evening when He walks beside us and His laughter lifts across the river as He delights in our wonder over this place He has given us. In silence. In starlight. In shouting an anthem of gladness that shakes the earth and hails birds into flight.”
Alanna Rusnak, Eve Undone

“We're all just wandering around with our fingers crossed, hoping we'll meet someone who will make our lostness a little less lonely.”
Alanna Rusnak, The Church in the Wildwood

“People swindle themselves out of Salvation with great regularity.”
Anne Rice, Angel Time

“We're all just wandering around with our fingers crossed, hoping we'll meet someone who will make our lostness a little less lonely.”
Alanna Rusnak, The Church in the Wildwood

“So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

“Ah, what broken creatures we are, and how we endure.”
Anne Rice, Of Love and Evil
